The other day Derek and I had an interesting conversation where I tried to explain how my brain works, or in this case malfunctions. Now I am going to attempt to explain it to all of you!
The video clip above (sorry about the ad) is from WarGames and if you’re familiar with that movie, you’ll remember that scene. For the uninitiated: Essentially, the computer, Joshua, is trying to win a game that cannot be won. Currently, my brain is trying to solve a problem that can’t be solved: What will pre-surgery/the surgery/post-surgery/recovery really be like? On a smaller scale I do this all the time, and some of you may also do it occasionally. You might imagine how a conversation with your boss might go before you actually have the conversation. You might imagine doing a sick roast beef off a snowboard jump right before you launch yourself off a kicker. All very normal processes that the brain goes through to prepare us for different possibilities.
