How amazing are we?

I've been reading the posts on the TED Blog. Fascinating stuff (and fascinating group all together). I've signed up for the Global Mentor pledge. I love the concept. I hope it works!

Chris Anderson posted a pretty interesting piece about the mind's ability to make sense of a non-sensical world (my words).
