folks usually react when i use the term monkey brain. i really use it  
to describe the most deep seated parts of what makes us human from our  
evolutionary past. a lot of it are those things we innately react to.  
I think the true art spirit is one of those things and good design  
really is trying to tap the true art spirit. Look at the cave  
paintings, they show how far back the art spirit goes into our past.  
besides watch chimps for a while and then go to the mall!
