Inside my mind: A human hunger

What’s inside our skull?  Is it our brain or our mind?

This is a real brain floating in liquid to keep it intact as a specimen, and undoubtedly it’s not mine.  Our brain is divided into two hemispheres and it contains billions of neurons. The brain plays a crucial role in our motor and sensory roles.

Our brain enhances our capacity for intellectual thoughts, planning, decision-making, survival and instincts based on past experiences.  It can transcend beyond the intellect and delve into the realm of the unknown.

Without the brain; language, consciousness, memory, abstract thoughts, art, philosophy, and religion do not exist.

The staggering complexity of a human brain as it begins to develop from infancy to adulthood remains a mystery.

Inside my brain, inside of my mind, I have a human hunger that I cannot grasp.  Is God just a perception generated by my brain or is it wired to experience the reality of God?

Still, no one can answer this to my satisfaction when it comes to science.  It is all a mystery.

“The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true science. He who knows it not and can no longer wonder, no longer feel amazement, is as good as dead” ~ Albert Einstein.

  1. i am so relieved that is not your brain, lol. it is an amazing thing though, isn’t it, the human brain? what it is able to do – and what it has as yet been untapped to do.
    and yet i think that which is spiritual is beyond the brain. compassion, kindness, forgiveness those are attributes which are an act of the will, sometimes against better judgement and yet going ahead because they are the right thing to do. i think there is a reason that we have a spirit, a soul and a body. 🙂

  2. Since my mother’s brain surgery she’s proud to say that she’s the only one in the family who has been proved to have a brain… and people wonder why my sense of humor is distorted, lol! 🙂

  3. The brain is so fascinating! I can’t help but wonder even in the absence of words and communication eye contact can seems to communicate feelings. I take care of a few feral cats. I began feeding them and have gained their trust. One recently had a wound on his ear, although I had never been able to touch him before he seemed to understand that I was willing to help. He came close to me and actually leaned into my reach and allowed me to tend his wound. The connection with life that transcends verbal communication seems to be a Divine understanding. Does that connection and understanding possibly come from the heart rather than the mind?

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
