Someone needs to perform an fMRI study on personal computers—say, Intel-based machines versus some Macs. Each comparison group can be resonance photographed while performing the same task, for instance the monthly payroll. I suspect there will be some differences.
Since the Intel-based machines are in more widespread use, their images can be presumed to be the healthy ones, with the areas of highest concentrated glow described as the likely location for a monthly payroll module (greatly advancing our understanding of that mysterious concept called accounting). In contrast, the electronic flows of the Macs can be described as disordered and dysfunctional, with various treatment options—such as battery boost, a well-placed bobby pin, or just a good kick—being offered for consideration.
What today’s brain imaging studies show most clearly is our own muddled thinking.
