Ramachandran is quite an interesting character...
Say, have you heard about the Mirror Project? It's been going on for some years now and is huge-ish: http://www.flickr.com/groups/mirrorproject/ . Might be something for your book.
As they say in fan:I SEE YOU THAR.Weird how you can go almost anywhere and have your reflection thrown at you;you'd have to go far far away to be where you don't see yourself. We don't have those cyclops reflectors here, but they were everywhere in Japan; the possibilities - without end!
SPARK: I never heard of Ramachandran until I came across this quote. I'll have to listen more closely to waht he says.KRISTA: Thanks! No I didn't know that group. I'm not really conversant with Flickr.MARET: So many shiny surfaces in our world... Weird to think of past times when there were very few.I wonder why those mirrors were popular in Japan.I don't see them often here either.
I have a quote of Ramachandran's, about synesthesia, about a foot away from me now. He studies neurological disorders and worked out a method of dealing with phantom limb syndrome in amputees (involving the use of mirrors). The book I'm thinking of is Phantoms in the Brain.
