There are elderly people who say the parietal cortex does not just act as a simple crossroads for the inputs and outputs of the brain. In addition, there are problems of recognition for parietal patients, possibly leading to bizarre denials of half their body: in turn, as an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life--so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so that this 'neglect' can give rise to even wilder claims that their arm, for example belongs to someone else. Clearly, then, they feel like a young person trapped in an aging body. Limbs wane, belly bloats, hair sprouts in unusual places, and organs begin to falter. But brains age differently, so the hero of this tale may still die young.
