|Album Summary: Our music is
about brain, mind, and mental disorders. Hey, it's heavy mental.
Our signature song is "All in a Nut," named for
the amygdala (from the Greek, meaning almond). So why do we
feel so afraid? It's all in a nut. As we all know, "An
Emotional Brain" is a hard thing to tame. Listen to the
song to know why. Philosophers have long argued about the
relation of mind to body. The protagonist of "Mind Body
Problem" faces this deep dilemma. His ex-girlfriend,
after jilting him, wants to come back--his body wants her
so but his mind says no. Another philosophical point is Descartes'
idea that we have privileged access to our own thoughts, and
that no one else can be in there. As "Inside of Me"
explains, "you can't see inside of me, that's a place,
only I can be." Past lovers often leave strong and enduring
memories. "A Trace" tells a story about this. Memory
researchers in the know will figure out that the scientific
theme underlying this song is the dominant trace theory. Sometimes
we have memories that we can't get rid of. In post-traumatic
stress disorder, these can be debilitating. We've done research
in rats showing that a specific memory can be deleted by carefully
timing the retrieval of that memory with a drug, a so-called
"Memory Pill," hence the name of that song. "Extinction"
tells the story of human demise, and our replacement by androids,
hairless and brainless cyborgs that rule the earth with their
superior electronic minds. In a nutshell, that's Heavy Mental.
