We have started the first of four volumes of the Metu Neter. We have already looked at the authors preface,and we are currently dissecting the introduction the first chapter. Read part 1 here and part 2 here.
This blog post will be the first part of the “Hemispheres of the Brain” section of the introduction to the first chapter.
Paragraph 1: Western Scientists have determined that the brain is separated into two sections. They are opposite of each other but they also compliment each other. This means that they are different and separate but they work together to achieve a purpose or goal. One side of our brain connects everything from the molecular level to the whole while the other takes the whole apart and dissects it. The first side eye mentioned corresponds to the right side of the brain and this side is the one that “connects the dots”, in a manner of speaking. It is the side that takes the phonetics in your words to make a full word, then into a sentence and so forth. This is the side of the brain that allows comprehension to take place. The second side, the left side, is the one that deciphers between spoken words and thoughts. it allows us to think and speak verbally, or out loud. One does not simply speak or think. These things occur one step at a time and at a very fast pace. Because the process takes time and each step occurs at a different time, these are controlled by the left side of the brain as it is the one that is in charge of segregating or separating the whole. The right side of the brain is in charge of putting the pieces together so that one can comprehend what they are seeing, hearing, etc. This occurs in one step, unlike the left side of the brain; which separates information.
Paragraph 2: The author, Ra Un Nefer Amen, goes on to summarize that the left side of the brain is the one that notes the differences between things as well as sequential phenomena. That is to say that it is in charge of putting things in order cohesively or smoothly. Most know this as the analytic part of the brain. The right side of the brain is the one that unifies everything in relation to everything else. For example, it is the part that sees your entire living room piece by piece and combines them all to make them what you know as your living room. you dont see your living room in separate pieces because the right side of the brain combines them all effortlessly for you so that it makes sense. This is known as the holistic part of the brain.
Paragraph 3: Both parts of the brain work in unison to give us the experiences that we live daily. They both work together, even though most people tend to be stronger or more attached to one side of the brain than the other. The author gives 2 examples: the first is someone who possibly talks too much but has very little substance. The second is someone who barely speaks, but when they do, their words have ultimate value and depth. Next, the author describes how these differences are not randomly dispersed throughout society. He states that most men are more left-sided than women as well as the members of the Caucasian persuasion in comparison to non-whites, a fact that is backed up by Western psychologists. These differences are the main reason why we have cultural differences among the two aforementioned people. These differences have been the root to many historical events as well. Without this concept there can be no science of history, psychology, anthropology, or understanding of religion, the author states.
In my next blog post we will go into the following paragraphs.
See you then!
