We are on the verge of a revolution in neuroscience as significant as the Galilean revolution in physics or the Darwinian revolution in biology. Nobel laureate Gerald M. Edelman takes issue with the many current cognitive and behavioral approaches to the brain that leave biology out of the picture, and argues that the workings of the brain more closely resemble the living ecology of a jungle than they do the activities of a computer.

Rush's 1987 release Hold Your Fire blends the band's trademark progressive rock with more eclectic musical influences, drawn largely from traditional Chinese music. Although the songs on the album feature nearly as much synthesizer and keyboard as its predecessor, Power Windows, the guitar riffs and solos are considerably more prominent here. The single Time Stand Still, a US number three rock hit, includes guest vocals from Aimee Mann of 'Til Tuesday, marking Rush’s first collaboration with another singer.

Hold Your Fire is an album in the purest sense; infinitely greater than the sum of its parts, it gradually draws in the listener by slowly revealing its nuances and secrets. While the use of keyboards is still overwhelming at times, Geddy Lee employs lush textures which, when coupled with a greater rhythmic and melodic presence from guitarist Alex Lifeson, results in a far warmer sound than in recent efforts. Of course, drummer Neil Peart is as inventive and exciting as ever, while his lyrics focus on the various elements (earth, air, water, fire) for much of the album.

Hold Your Fire is the 12th studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in the fall of 1987 and stalled at #13 (the first time a Rush studio album failed to reach the Top 10 since 1978's Hemispheres) and sold a million copies according to the band's then-label Mercury Records. However, the American RIAA has the album listed at Gold. In terms of songwriting, Rush continued to explore new territory.

In the USA alone over 15,000 Airmen lost their lives in training accidents as the WWII Allies scaled-up their Air forces. The relatives of these young men often have no idea what actually happened and typically the official reasons were put down simply to "pilot error". From 1939 to 1945 thousands of young airmen met terrible ends not at the hands the enemy's machine guns or because of the murderous flak of anti-aircraft fire, but in catastrophic accidents and training crashes.
