Occupy my brain

I’ve always liked the passage in A Study in Scarlet where Dr. Watson is shocked to learn
that Sherlock Holmes doesn’t know that the earth travels around the sun. Given the finite
capacity of the human brain, Holmes explains, he can’t afford to have useless facts elbowing
out the useful ones:
“What the deuce is it to me? You say that we go round the sun. If we went round
the moon it would not make a pennyworth of difference to me or to my work.”

And you’ve been so busy lately
That you haven’t found the time
To open up your mind
And watch the world spinning gently out of time
