Chapter Five: Hemispheric Brain
The brain was split in two. The architecture provided a cognitive override. If the messages from the brain stem flooded the organ with fear, desire, or any other strong feeling, the force of it was divided into the two parts.
This allowed for a fraction of a moment of distance to develop between the individual and the event that generates the feeling. A moment when choice was possible, and the individual could act apart from the coercive effect of the external stimuli.
The human being was split down the middle, left for right and right for left.
It was an organic duality.
Cognitives function were split between the two hemispheres as well.
Mathematical, categorical, statistical functions to one side of the brain, while the boundary spanning, rule breaking, artistic and unorthodox functions occupied the other half of the brain. It was symbiosis.
The hemispheres of the brain were not distinct. They were conjoined by a network, a wetwork of fibers, the tiniest of organic structures, not much larger than a chain of protein molecules, but it was electric.
The nano-particles in the neural net allowed each individual to be connected to the quantum field, and in the quantum field there was all knowledge, and the fullness of humanity.
The past and the present were one.
The human being was one, even in light of its inherent duality.
