Foer explains that our brains contain a narrative network that holds vast stores of information about our own and other people’s history. When a person experiences the world using this network, she takes in information from the outside world, processes it through a filter, and adds her own interpretation. At any given moment in time an image or spark is a perceived message that is transmitted nonverbally.
Synaptic connections transmit these messages in a vast interconnected network of nerve cells. This collage illustrates the interweaving of these transmissions—neural synapses flowing from one to the other.
