Ideas of Adam Dance, by Text

[British, fl. 2001, RGS High Wycombe]

2001 works
p. Do new ideas increase the weight of the brain?
     Full Idea: If someone gives you a piece of information, does your brain suddenly become heavier?
     From: Adam Dance (works [2001]), quoted by PG - Db (ideas)
     A reaction: A beautifully simple question, which is a reductio of the idea that information is simply a physical object. The question points to a functionalist account of brain activity.
