“Biology of an Idea” is a play on the structure of ideas and the biological basis of thought. Interconnected neurons merge into an impression of a head and face. The head and face are the locus of most of the senses and our connection to the world. Very detailed fine line patterns suggestive of neurons, pulses and connections form a web. The suggestion of features and a person emerge organically from these patterns in an allusion to the emergent nature of consciousness. Blink, and the suggestion is lost in a tangle of neuronal patterns. The thinker, lost in the thought.
