As wee geeks, we were irrational little beings. It’s no wonder, since the human brain is not fully developed until age 22. So we believed until just recently that monsters lived under our beds and that when the lights went out, horrible things could happen to us. We practiced hiding under our covers and breathing as shallow as we possibly could so the monsters would think we weren’t there. Did it work? Suppose it did, after all, we’re here, aren’t we?
