I Knew It! It Only LOOKED Like I Was Slacking Off!

From Gizmag:

When you are not thinking about anything consciously, your brain is hard at work behind the curtain.

Thus once again people with doctoral degrees in stuff I never hoi'd of confirm what I knew already. Neat.

What really gets me, though, is that because they don't understand the body they assume the lesser must be the accurate description of it. They thought the high-falutin' parts of the brain shut down when we daydream. Turns out, we just stop paying conscious attention to their working. Sorta the same way we already knew the brain was active during dreams . . . ?
