BODY LANGUAGE….Tyler Cowen sez:

By the way, when I lie in bed I find I have completely different thoughts depending on whether I am on my side or on my back.

This really deserves further explication, doesn’t it? What kind of thoughts does he have in those positions?

Hopefully this isn’t related to what he’s doing when he’s in different positions, which would be fairly trivial. When I’m on my side I’m more likely to be watching TV or talking to Marian, for example, but when I’m on my back I’m usually reading. So: different kinds of thoughts. But is that what Tyler is talking about? Or does the mere change of position itself inspire different thinking?
