Neural Networks and the Brain

Gravel road running

At the end of our block there was a gravel road that lead west out to the highway. For a few early summer months, I remember trying to wake up early before school to go running with Cheryl to the end of that road and back.

It always seemed so daunting. Early summer mornings were cool at best or downright cold. I wanted to get up to show Cheryl that I could manage just like she could, but those times of sitting in the landing, far too tired, trying to lace up my sneakers almost killed me. I didn’t last more than half-a-dozen outings.

We’d get our shoes on, and we’d creak open the back door, and head out onto the driveway in the early morning sunshine. At this point I’d think twice about doing anything more than this—why was I out here?

The we’d start plodding down the street towards the end and towards the start of the gravel road. Why we never ran in town is now a mystery to me, though I never thought of it then. Fairview’s a small town; there was never any traffic. And with how early we got up in the morning, there wouldn’t have been any traffic anyways. The dusty gravel road and how it stretched out towards the horizon and away from anything comforting (houses, people, my bed and blankets) made it all the more daunting. Still we never ran any other way.

An article in Rolling Stone (October 20, 1994) by Adam Miller called J. Philippe Rushton a 'professor of hate,' someone who 'takes money from an organization with a terrible past' (the Pioneer Fund, a foundation said to have an orientation toward eugenics). He is accused of being 'obsessed with intelligence and genetics' to the point of having 'racist' attitudes by Jeffrey Rosen and Charles Lane in The New Republic symposium on IQ (October 31, 1994). They single out Rushton for linking ethnocentricism to genetic factors; this in turn subjects him to the broad brush of being, along with Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray, 'Neo-Nazis' Newsweek (October 24, 1994). In The Chronicle of Higher Education (October 26, 1994) critiquing Herrnstein and Murray's The Bell Curve it is clear...
