"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

comment What concepts of perception should designers be aware of when designing?
@Ryan, fix your question so that I can reply it instead of commenting. So that my answer will be easier to find for others.

comment Why is it common for people to default to a single causal source to explain new phenomena?
@WilliamBSwift , yes I was thinking on that concept as well. However, I didn't know its name. Thanks a lot! That gave me a great starting point to research further.

@zergylord, thanks for your advice. But just as I am not in this field, I am not a native english speaker eigher. As a result, I don't know which improvements I could make would be beneficial for my question. It is open to edits. Can you help with it?

comment Do porn and other remotely perceived entertainments work because of Mirror Neurons?
@Ben Brocka, maybe the underlying biological reasons for imagination's stimulation is the same as the mirror neurons'. That doesn't necessarily refute my claim. And what is the controversial part of the mirror neurons?

comment Why are people inclined to praise or fear the unknown?
Steven Jeuris, you changed title from "praise" to "belief" but I want to emphasize this praising/fear inclination rather than believing them as some deities' creations - the latter is the result of the former I presume. Did you watch the video link I gave above? The tribe's first encounter and they immediately praise/fear from that unknown thing - just as when we heard news about CERN: "oh I don't know what it is but it is so coool! But don't play with the nature, you will bring the apocalypse!", feear and/or praise. This is my point, not god/religion/aliens specifically.
