Amazing human body facts
The Brain

“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” 

― Dalai Lama


“Rabbit's clever," said Pooh thoughtfully.
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit's clever."
"And he has Brain."
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit has Brain."
There was a long silence.
"I suppose," said Pooh, "that that's why he never understands anything.” 
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

The amazing human body facts:

The human brain…that gray mass that sits so mysteriously in the back of our heads…what is it?

What can it really do?

What can it truly achieve?

Does it have limits?

Does it hold the secrets to communicating without words?

Does it know the mystery of flying or of manipulating matter without touch?

"No matter how closely you examine the water, glucose, and electrolyte salts in the human brain, you can't find the point where these molecules became conscious." 

- Deepak Chopra

“The vast majority of us imagine ourselves as like literature people or math people. But the truth is that the massive processor known as the human brain is neither a literature organ or a math organ. It is both and more.”

 John Green

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

Albert Einstein

Dominion does not mean domination.

We hold dominion over animals only because of our powerful and ubiquitous intellect. Not because we are morally superior. Not because we have a "right" to exploit those who cannot defend themselves.

Let us use our brain to move toward compassion and away from cruelty, to feel empathy rather than cold indifference, to feel animals' pain in our hearts. 

 Marc Bekoff, Animals Matter

Brain Quotes

“Biology gives you a brain. Life turns it into a mind.” 
― Jeffrey Eugenides

"My brain and my mind are often at war with themselves; not against one another, but both raging wars against their own perception of what is true and what is not...what is reality and what is illusion.  The trouble is the verdict never comes and will never come. My mind, my brain, are the only ones with a first hand account of my existence.  Everything else is just theory. Thus I am forever free of sentence."  

- Stephanie Schneider

“I am a brain, Watson. The rest of me is a mere appendix.” 
― Arthur Conan Doyle

“As long as our brain is a mystery, the universe, the reflection of the structure of the brain will also be a mystery.”
― Santiago Ramón y Cajal
