“For more than a decade, neuroscientists and physiologists have been gathering evidence of the beneficial relationship between exercise and brainpower.
But the newest findings make it clear that this isn’t just a relationship; it is the relationship.
Using sophisticated technologies to examine the workings of individual neurons — and the makeup of brain matter itself — scientists in just the past few months have discovered that exercise appears to build a brain that resists physical shrinkage and enhance cognitive flexibility. Exercise, the latest neuroscience suggests, does more to bolster thinking than thinking does.”

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.

This quote should be the real Planck’s Law.  Here’s a maxim I work with: there is no such thing as change.  Trying to get people trying to change is not usually fruitful.  You have to wait for those people to go away.  Statistically it is true that people will die before they change.  Work with new people and win them over.  Start developing a new community of people who want to move forward, to grow, and to make a difference.
