Understanding how it all fits together
The Brain is the most complex organ in the body. It produces the mystery of the conscious mind, our awareness of ourselves and our world and our ability to make free choices about engaging with the world.
It generates and structures our thought, enables us to have emotions and mediates our spiritual lives – our sense of meaning and value and the proper context within which to make sense of our experiences.
Here is what the brain does!
The brain gives us touch, sight, smell and language. It is the storehouse for our memories. It controls the beating of our hearts, the rate at which we sweat, the pace of our breathing and countless other bodily functions.
It is the bridge between our inner lives and the outer world. The brain can do all these things because it is complex, flexible, adaptive and self-organizing.
