About the Book by Andy Clark Titled “The Experience Machine: How Our Minds Predict and Shape Reality”

From a Wall Street Journal story by Matthew Hutson headlined “‘The Experience Machine’ Review: What the Brain Sees”:

In 1995, a construction worker landed on a 6-inch nail, piercing his boot. After emergency physicians injected him with sedatives and cut away his footwear, they discovered that the nail had slid between his toes. He had escaped bodily harm, contrary to his painful perception.
