Great psych hoaxes

Two choice quotes from a solid NYT op-ed about our minds and magic:

“If you are given a choice, you believe you have acted freely,” said Teller, of the duo Penn and Teller, to Smithsonian magazine. “This is one of the darkest of all psychological secrets.”

“Reality and our perception of it are incommensurate to a far greater degree than is often believed.”
