Todd Siler received his Ph.D. in interdisciplinary studies in psychology and art from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; his artworks are in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum, among others. His company, Psi-Phi Communications, develops multimedia learning materials for business and education, and he also gives lectures and seminars on creativity, art, and technology to organizations nationwide. Siler's first book was Breaking the Mind Barrier.From Library Journal:
"In decoding the brain, we decode the universe," writes Siler, a research affiliate at MIT. This simple, yet fundamental premise is the basis of neurocosmology, a new discipline which combines neuroscience, cosmology, and art as it seeks to discover that which connects the brain to the universe. It does so most successfully by forming metaphors which compare processes common to both--the ways stars and nervous systems are formed, for example: their similar means of transporting energy, even their modes of communication. Siler's philosophical proposals are bold and original (some might suggest far-fetched), certainly worthy of attention by students of traditional disciplines. Readers will need a solid grounding in physics and neuroscience. For academic and special collections.
