A TED talk by Daniel Wolpert:

"We have a brain for one reason and one reason only,
and that's to produce adaptable and complex movements.

If mr. Wolpert is correct, there is a lot of evidence that black people are the most able of all humanoids on the planet at brain function in that we seem to be the most gifted athletes and that is a complex statistical algorithmic ability and not, essentially, one of muscle function.

Yet, we are and have not been moving to our advantage.

Why?  Cree offers some thoughts and shares this TED talk for later discussion on on how the information can help us solve The Problem.  What movements do we need to make to solve The Problem?
