True Detective Meets Cognition

29 September 2018

Because I have been thinking about reality, since my daughter sent me the Anil Seth Ted talk, the new Netflix show Maniac caught my eye. It is an exploration of all things brain and awareness and cognition. To sweeten the pot, it is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga who directed the first season of True Detective, another one of those shows that makes you think so hard you cannot make articulate sounds. I watched True Detective on plane flights after working in various places and when I would finish an episode, I would look around the plane, filled with travelers, and not be able to place myself for a moment.
