What Is Wrong With Dad?

Posted by Tanas Gjorgoski on November 29, 2006

-“What’s wrong with dad?” – the little girl asked her mother.
-“His brain isn’t processing enough serotonin,”- she replied, “so his body is in a slouched position as a result and his tear ducts are excreting toxins. If we put our arms around him and say kind words to him, his brain might start processing serotonin again”

Is this how people will relate to one another in the distant future if we reject the idea of qualitative experiences? Do Churchlands speak like this at their home?

This is what my friend Ben Dickson was wondering about in one discussion we had.
