    The central problem of the mind, if you will, or the nervous system, is this: when an animal learns something, it can do something different than it could before, and its brain cell must have changed too, if it is made out of atoms. In what way is it different? We do not know where to look, or what to look for, when something is memorized. We do not know what it means, or what change there is in the nervous system, when a fact is learned. This is a very important problem which has not been solved at all.
    Note: que pasa cuando memorizamos algo nuevo?

    Our problems are manmade—therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants.
