Philosophy Wire: Born. Flowing. Feeling cold. [Birth: From plasticity to stillness]


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2017-04-30]: Baby humans’ brain cells take a while to get situated after birth, it turns out. A large group of young nerve cells moves into the frontal lobe during infants’ first few months of life, scientists report in the Oct. 7 Science issue. The mass migration might help explain how human babies’ brains remain so malleable for a window of time after birth. [1] Initially we are born as no one. And then we become someone. Initially we are born as part of the cosmos. Like a fluid ready to flow everywhere, to fill in every space, we rush into life. But then we end up in a specific hole. And we remain there. Cold. Unseen. Afraid. We must be water again. And start flowing. The creek is very near. I hear it… Can you?
