From the creator:
Dion Lee at Vox Media reached out to me to create an animated piece for their Flow Thinking series. My piece centers around a sound bite from the psychologist Alison Gopnik who studies cognitive development and how children learn. She talked to Ezra Klein about how the use of psychedelics can cause our adult brains to operate very similar to newborns.
