Still and all, here is somebody claiming to show that ideology rewires your brain physiologically and makes you stupid: something I believe on other observational grounds entirely. Since any mental habit rewires your brain physiologically (given that mental habits are conducted by brain cells), I would suppose that ideology (which is the reduction of thought to nothing but unexamined mental habits) does the same. But if it helps to have a pretty picture with colors, knock yourself out.
