This nude of my father is my study on how data flows through the human corpus collosum. We all exist as split personalities: spiritual and operational. For those of you who understand computers, our right brain functions like a parallel processor. While our left hemisphere functions like a serial processor. The two hemispheres communicate with one another through the corpus collosum, which is made up of some 300 million axonal fibers.
The left hemisphere of our brain thinks methodically. It is all about ordering the past and predicting the future. Our left hemisphere is designed to take that enormous collage of the present moment and start picking details and more details and more details about those details. It then categorizes and organizes all the information. Associates it with everything in the past we've ever learned and projects into the future all of our possibilities. Our left brain analyses.
Our right brain hemisphere is all about this present moment. The future and the past do not exist. It thinks in pictures and it learns kinesthetically through the movement of our bodies. Information in the form of energy streams in through all of our sensory systems. "I am an energy being connected to the energy all around me through the consciousness of my right hemisphere." - Extracts from Jill Bolte Taylor, Ted.com
