But alas the paper is boring, with no diagrams, no coinage of neologisms and only one meaningless formula. Do we hear of the role of the Heat-Sync in transferring entropy? Do we learn how to improve the efficiency of the neuro-mechanical Carnot Cycle? Do we bog-roll.
Here's Žižek to show how it's done:
UPDATE: Bowhead whales improve the efficiency of their brains with the help of a heat sink, which is a 4-metre-long secondary penis in the roof of the mouth.
