Pigeons are capable of switching between two tasks as quickly as humans – and even more quickly in certain situations. These are the findings of biopsychologists who had performed the same behavioral experiments to test birds and humans. The authors hypothesize that the cause of the slight multitasking advantage in birds is their higher neuronal density. (1)
Doing less is doing more. More brain means more filtering to the input we receive from the cosmos. And the input is raw and dark. We cannot accept it unfiltered. That is why people innocent enough to witness the cosmos end up crazy at the end. Only children can bear the burden. Because they know they can fly. Even though we teach them that they cannot.
The pigeon is not remarkable because it can perform multitasking.
A modern processor can do the same as well.
The pigeon is remarkable because it makes the children run and laugh…
Feed the pigeon.
