In which we do a bit of reminiscing, let our conversation get spiritual, book a play date, coin the word "replicatory," and get a first look at the title of my upcoming book.

In which we spend some time with my grandparents, consider the benefits of corrupting the youth, let Skype & the stars & Earthrise blow our minds, and appreciate the wonder of how learning more helps us to know less.

In which we stop beating ourselves up for not being good at meditation, take a peak into the penalty-taker's conundrum, start to understand why we're so negative, and create a platform from which we can deconstruct our spiritual ideas of "who we really are."

In which we explore the relationship between tickling and fighting, hang out with some monkeys and an invisible gorilla, develop a theory of why people feel competitive urges during yoga, and end up talking way more about sex than I'd originally intended. 

In which we look at the psychological and neuroscientific background of laughter; combine an interrobang with a colon; imagine ourselves as aliens; take the piss out of Elizabeth Barnett; and employ a series of parentheses, brackets, and braces that probably only I find hilarious.  

In which we reclaim "sexy" for the nerds, bend space-time with our minds, learn about learning from both our hunter-gather ancestors and the octopus, and split an infinitive.

In which we discuss the incredible neuroscience of human movement, meet a sea squirt and a cup-stacking wizard, procrastinate in finding our own equilibrium, and consider the relevance of yoga & meditation in a universe governed by Newton's Second Law of Thermodynamics.
