RAMBLINGS OF A MADMAN
The purpose of blogs vary. Many are simply personal ones, where they describe the workings of the author's life. Some are political, rallying for one side and decrying the other. The purpose of this blog is to post my internal musings about things I don't fully understand. There are few answers in this blog, but many questions. No post is a light read - I endeavour to make them long and deep. And I never give a tl;dr version. If I haven't scared you away yet, happy thinking. :D

Think of a random word

Think of a random word.

I thought of "mosquito".

I wonder, what are the thought processes involved in coming up with a random number or word. It can't be truly random - I'd watched an old episode of Family Guy that used the word "mosquito" a few times in one of the scenes, which was the thing that prompted me to think of mosquito.

So how does the brain drag a memory up for this "random" word? What processes does it go through to...
