“These people that made these discoveries were part of prestigious universities, but a lot of them had been marginalized. Their work didn’t fit into accepted conventions. We had the late Dr. Karl Pribram, the discoverer of the limbic system, basically saying that all of our higher cognitive functions are not locked inside our skulls. They are out there in the field. Our brain accesses them, almost like a television set accesses a signal from somewhere else.” – Lynne McTaggart
