Me and My Gravitational Field
When I watched a neuroscientist
cogently explain the specific functions
of mind and brain, a proverbial light
bulb shone and a Pavlovian bell
I jumped up and shouted
to nobody, I knew this well,
how could I have forgotten
for so long?
The brain is the physical part of
our anatomy that does the mind’s
bidding. Mind is the thinking,
feeling, choosing part of us,
capable of processing
four hundred million bits
of information per second.
The more the neuroscientist
discussed, the clearer it became.
I am to engage in a new life
mission, not as stellar as as
sending astronauts to Mars,
yet far reaching in the arena
of human (and this human
in particular) development.
I have hired the contractor (me)
and I have found the ideal location
to build my home, the gravitational
field that surrounds me. I need
construct no temple nor walls,
only the hallowed halls of
thinking, feeling, and choosing,
empowering me to create
how I interact (respond) with (to)
the events or people, that come
within spitting distance to
me and my gravitational field.
