From our former outpost at Twitter:
Sagan said if we designed constellations today they'd be refrigerators & microwaves. Clearly no amount of weed can turn a left brain right.
To whatever extent Carl Sagan may have understood the cosmos, he was embarrassingly clueless about the artistic mind. If you can hear us, Mr. Sagan, you were profoundly incorrect on two counts: people are still connecting the dots to form new constellations, and no, they most certainly aren't picturing refrigerators and microwaves. We almost want to laugh, but this sort of insight into the left-brain universe is just so chilling.
