This is a photo by Richard Ansett called "Woman With Wire Cap #1". It is on display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and won second place in an art contest. The subject is wearing a cap that's wired up to record her brain activity while she looks at different pictures. It's almost a symphony in white, except that it is not pure and lovely. It is about science and machinery. To me, it is rather chilling and disturbing. I took this picture from the newspaper, where it says that it is reminiscent of the paintings of the elegant Dutch ladies in their white lace caps by Rembrandt. It is said that we use only one tenth of our brains. But why is that, and what happened to the rest? I was watching a T.V. preacher the other day who proposed a theory. He said that Adam and Eve had no illness or decay in their bodies, and were using their whole brains. But after sin and the fall, illness came into the picture, and with that, the loss of so much mental capacity. I'm not saying that I agree with this, but it makes sense and would explain it all. What do you think, where have our minds gone?
"I am determined to be wise-but this was beyond me. Whatever wisdom may be, it is far off and profound-who can discover it?" Ecc. 7:23,24
"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you."
