In this chapter, the author describes the Salk Institute where he performs his experiments on monkeys to understand the nature of consciousness. Named after Jonas Salk, the Institute employs hard-nosed, aggressive, extremely competitive, and brilliant scientists who have continued to articulate and define its ideal. The author cites three men who have contributed to the Salk Institute's progress: Frederic de Hoffmann, Renato Dulbecco, and Francis Crick.
