Good Afternoon, God!
So, the news a few days ago was about how Albert Einstein had a MUCH thicker Corpus Callosum — the part of the brain that connects our left and right hemispheres. That may have been a genetic “gift” or maybe he just used that part a LOT. Brain usage does seem to result in brain growth.
In my opinion, God, most of us humans could use a much sturdier Corpus Callosum. Being able to fully connect the two hemispheres would make for a much more fully functioning brain. But, alas, it is too easy to get stuck in one hemisphere or the other. Then we have hemisphere dominance instead of hemispheres alternating, sharing and cooperating.
I like to think of the corpus as conducting “shuttle diplomacy” between the two hemispheres. I wonder if it helps if there is a strong appreciation of each side’s abilities — in short, if there is mutual respect?
Sometimes, God, it isn’t easy for our two hemisphere’s to get along. And these two photos really make that point! The man on the left looks so serious . . . and boring. But, then the man on the right looks like a nut-case. Hard to believe they are both Albert Einstein.
I’m smiling, God! Imagine having to stream information and viewpoints back and forth between those two men if they were separate individuals! YIKES!
Sometimes, I think that our two political parties are a bit like our two hemispheres. Only, maybe there are not enough people acting as part of the Corpus Callosum in our Body Politic?
Perhaps, God, all of us could work harder at mutual respect, cooperation and full functioning — inside our own divided brains, and outside in our divided world?
