Random trivia from Daniel Pink’s A Whole New Mind: when moving your eyes slowly from left to right, the left side of your brain is controlling the actions. Like when, say, reading English.

I don’t want to make too much of this: I assume it’s true, but exactly what to derive from this isn’t clear. For example, even if it has an effect on how your brain might be primed to process the words, does it mean that your left side will want to leap in (since it’s already doing something) or will want the right side to take over (since the left side is busy?) And it’s quite possible that it has no effect whatsoever on anything, and quite likely that whatever effect it has is very slight. Still, it does raise possibilities.

(Good book, by the way, though not earthshattering or anything.)
