Animation and the philosophy of mind

The best passage I read in a while:

Everything that you see, when you view a Pixar movie, is what an empiricist philosopher of the eighteenth century would call an impression. It was born and cradled in the mind of a computer, and there it lived and grew.

Anthony Lane, The Fun Factory: Life at Pixar, New Yorker, May 16, 2011.
