Subject: The Magical Brain
Hello all!

I want to know what was nagging me from sometime. Normally they say, the right brain controls the left part of our body and the left brain controls the right part of the body.

Then what is right? raised eyebrow

To define 'right' in your question depends on the context. Objects and subjects in various examples of specific contexts would determine which is 'right.'

The trick is to hold your hands in front of you, palms outward. The hand that shapes an L with an extended thumb is the left one. The other is the right one. That was what you were asking wasn't it? grinkookydozeydozeyrolling eyessticking out tongue

interesting question.

some years ago, i did some polarity therapy and was told by the therapist that traditional polarity teachings hold that the right side of the body is considered representative of the masculine archetype, and the left side is representative of the feminine archetype. this is also the way i interpret right and left in dream interpretation.

my theory is that right-hand dominance is how the word "right" came to be synonymous with the word "correct". ideally, first you do what's right, then you take what's left. this is in alignment with principles of masculine & feminine archetypes. what's happening inside the brain is typically only obvious to a neuroscientist, so with regard to the science of it, i imagine there's usually not much influence there on the common usage of right & left.

musing,
lib

Thank you Parosysm laughing
You have just proved that the power of mind towards the righteousness is simply uncontrollable. I am happy that you finished it grin

Thanks Lib and Thinker for the thoughts.

Jesuses: Yeah, when I was posting the question I definitely had the doubt on the context of my question.

Thanks
