At Least It's Good For Something!

The course I actually chose from The Teaching Company is one called Biology and Human Behavior; The Neurological Origins of Individuality. The one called Consciousness came with it in a special deal - I was thrilled with that option, however, Consciousness is so abstract and philosophical that D is lost almost from the beginning. For a moment I thought he was understanding it (I was totally surprised to think he was able to) because of a comment he made:

D: Well, Mom, this does stimulate creative thinking.
Me: ?! You understand the points he's making?
D: Oh, no, no, not at all after the first ten minutes. My mind is wandering and I'm coming up with all sorts of creative ideas I can experiment with!
