Most of us think for a living. Our outputs—experiments, talks, papers, etc.—are evidence of our having thought productively.

Do you ever wonder how thinking works?

If you are curious, you might want to schedule a trip to the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University to visit the new art exhibition, “How ‘Thinks’ Work

The press release says “it is an exhibition designed to explore the human thinking process in relation to mathematics, human perception, philosophy, language and nature. The title alludes to the common phrase, “How Things Work,” and suggests the treatment of the thinking process as a universal mechanism.”

It opens Nov. 29 and runs through March 1, 2012.

I’m thinking about going. You?
