- The Human Brain:
the input and output of our thoughts and desires, feelings and wishes, and many more. But what is the reason of why it works the way we do, and how can thoughts be interpreted.
Heart, Mind, Body, Soul. How these can be interpreted.
Everything that happens in the body is reported to the brain, and then interpreted. If this was not true then you would not know what was going on. There is no other part of the body that can interpret what is going on because the brain stores all the information. Take for example, the stomache growls when it is hungry. The stomache does not know it is time to eat and that it is hungry, it simply digests the food. But the brain knows that when the stomache growls, it means that it is digesting itself, and so it needs food in order for it not to damage itself. This idea works simular to the other parts of the body. So the "heart" is not really your heart that knows and feels and all the other things that we relate with the heart. The main function of the heart is to pump blood through the body and nothing else. The reason why the heart goes faster when you fall in love with someone is because the brain senses a desire. With the desire sends adrenhaline which causes the heart to pump more blood thoughout the body, because desire is what causes adrenhaline. Desire is the same with life and death. The reason why there is an intense adrenhaline rush in a life or death occasion is because the brain desires to live, and so does what it can to do so. This is why the heart does what it does, it is because of desire being the release for adrenhaline is why it may seem that the heart is the strongest part of a person. The "mind" is what stores our intellegence and information. The mind has the ability to overrule strong feelings and our id. Our memory is affected by our mind. Everything must go through it, such as physical and mental feeling, desire, and other peoples information. The mind will interpret what is passing through it as logical or irrational. If the idea is logical, it will act upon this thought, if irrational, then it will try to stop the thought. Factors do affect the determination of logical and irrational, such as pride, arrogance and even sometimes desires. An example would be martching into battle and certain death. Our mind says that it wants to live, but our pride overrules it sometimes. A second example is love and how we may not want to buy the person something expensive because it does not benefit us, we do for our desire in thinking that we will get something in return. The "body" contains the physical feelings and our health. Our brain interprets the physical feelings as pleasure or painful. The pain usually corresponds to the irrational side of the mind, making us want to stop, while the pleasure feeling corresponds to the logical side, and so the brain will want to continue to do that feeling. Pain will be felt as long as the nerve is there in the skin or body. This will make us want to have the pain stop, but if it is overriden in the mind, then we can endure the pain. An example is if (in some sort of ritual) you were to be cut by a knife across the hand. You would feel the pain, your mind would say it is an irrational pain, but your pride will override the desire to stop, and so you would let them cut your hand. The "soul" is where the pride, arrogance, desires, and other variables that would effect the mind come from. These are what the brain holds as its beliefs, and would usually defend to the most, and always affect what is to be done by the brain. An example is if there is an unusual object in some ways in a crevace. You know your arm will barely fit between the two walls, and so you will feel pain reaching for it. Knowing that your brain does not want to feel pain, it has the mind say it is an irrational thought, but your curiosity overrules that, and so you attempt to get the object. The variables that can override the mind have their set limits. If you are a curious person, then you may reach for it. But if you will feel an insane amount of pain. than most likely the curious side will be neglected. As the mind does grow, it will change what is logical and irrational. So if you already know what the object is, then the mind will make the decision that reaching is irrational because the object is useless to get. These four components of the brain effect each person in what there decisions are to do.
