“Besides the simple logic involved in trying to find the next move, Go deals with shapes, so some scientists think the artistic power of our right brain is called in to help make decisions when we can’t read out all the possibilities (see page 160). This sets up a possible conflict between the hemispheres so that what looks or feels good to one might not be what the other thinks. Thus, besides the sheer excitement of competition and the basic inability for humans to ever be able to completely read out long sequences, this ongoing debate between the two halves of our brain can bring our emotions into play to a high degree.”

“Play your first 100 games quickly” is an old proverb that stresses the relative unimportance of victory and defeat while you are learning how to play the game.”

“Go has been known as one of the “Four Great Accomplishments” that any cultured person should master. The other three are painting, music, and calligraphy.”
