Our Brain Much the Same How We Use it Makes the Difference

The Control Center

 

The Grey Matter That Matters

From the beginning to the end there is nothing involuntary about life. The brain tells the body what to do and when the body can longer function the brain cannot survive and life shuts down. There is nothing that the body does that the brain does not tell it to.

For every action, there is a stimulus, no matter what you may have learned in school. You have to want to live to live.

The power of the brain is what guides our lives. It is the first organ to grow from the seed of life. The foundation for the brain is set early. Three weeks after conception, a sheet of embryonic cells called the neural plate folds and fuses into the neural tube. This tissue will become the central nervous system. The brain’s “master” role is evident by nature. Encased by the skull bone, it is our most protected organ and is the command center for all of our actions. What some of us fail to realize—at times—is that it provides us with all we need to do our own thinking. “Use your head.”

The brain is made up of physical parts and gives the mind to you and it never forgets what you do. It records every single thing that occurs in our environment—our world. If you know about it so does your brain. You do well to remember this when you think a thought for it is recorded in your memory and your memory is there in the brain. There is no erase button on board to be used.

As much as is known about how the brain works very little is known about what the brain can do. I think that there is no way we will understand all there is to know. That is because it is not meant to be. To know it all is not to exist. There would be nothing left to know or do.

Our brains have the same makeup, but different—as we are—in what it can do for us. Our thoughts are one of them. As long as there is the power of thought, we will be learning about how we think, and the workings of the brain. There can be no end. Just as it is with life, there will always be much left to learn. The end of thought means there is no more. Life, as we know it is over. The brain no longer works. It is dead. You have to listen to learn and learn to listen. I am telling you this, are you listening now?

Be sure to feed your brain with the food of knowledge. Do not be the reason for your brain to die.

Looking—Natural Behavior—Sex—Natural Act

Here’s Looking at You

White Woman's Eyes Close Up

 No one is immune to the urge to look, no one.

Obama Has Eyes for You

Some may turn away when you do it, but they like for it to be done and quite thrilled to do it too. Looking is what we do. And when who you are looking at is doing the same to you, why act as if you do not know what to do. A look your way, words they say can be a there you go or an oh no. A flip of the hair, a slight grin will tell you if it is out or in. You give a glance, or two, and you see they are looking back at you. I am not staring, I just like what I see. And how would you know that I am looking at you if you were not doing the same to me?

The sense of sight let us see what we smell, taste, touch,  and hear.

Photo Image of Senses (sight)

Vision or sight is how we see the world. We do this by input from the senses. They tell the brain what they smell, taste, touch, hear and see. Then the brain sends commands to the body. And perceptions are then formed in the mind for us to have thoughts to think. Our thoughts are based on what we receive, and are formed in the mind to be recorded by the brain. Our mind is where we think our thoughts and it suggests to us what to do with them. We have the choice to overrule the mind if need be. It is where perception has its roots. The senses are tools for the brain.

Probably most people would agree—I know that I do—that sight is the most precious of the five senses. We look out with our eyes and look in with our mind.  The human eye is the organ that gives us the sense of sight. It allows us to learn more about the world that we live in than we do with any of the other four senses. We use our eyes in most of the activities that we do Many of us fear the loss of sight more than any other disability. And we humans rely on our sense of sight more than a lot of other animals. Many animals use their sense of smell much as we use our sight. And for sure, the best way to know that “it” is real is to see it.

Night or day, our eyes each time that we open them send all that they see back to the brain where a permanent record is kept. It is much the same as a video camera; though, there is no erase button. All of the things that we look at are sent to our brain for processing and storage. Of course, there are things we see that we cannot get enough of and others that we do not want to ever see again. Either way, the picture will forever more be there in your mind. The sense of sight is considered the most complex of the five senses for good reason. Most all of the activities that we do we will need to see. And I am sure without the ability to see, you would have to touch it and smell it to become aroused. There is certainly not a thing wrong with that.

The Odd Couples 

Odd CoupleLooking is as natural as sex, and arousal does not have to be taught. What we see as beautiful is not as natural for it is influenced by the “world” that we live in. And yes, it is also about being told what or whom should be attractive to us.

                           TRANSGENDER

Transgender Woman Contest WinnerYou can certainly be deceived by all of the senses, even so sight will give you the best signs and signals that “it”—whatever it may be—is the real thing. There is no doubt; however, that you and your mind have to do their work. It is not nice to be fooled and there is quite a bit of foolery going on.

To know what turns us on is best known if we can see it. But it has come to the point of even seeing is not always believing. With all of the cover-ups, pushups and aides in getting it up you can hardly trust what your eyes are telling you. And for that matter, what you feel, when you are feeling it.

You hear all the time that men are visual creatures. Well, I am here to tell you that women are as much or more so. It goes something like this: The face, the hair, and the breast (for men), the crotch (for both), the butt (for both) and the legs (for men).

(insert men looking women) Now that is the way we see it. And you have to savor those things that you like. Because you cannot see, smell, taste or touch the mind, it is the last thing most of us think about. Though you can tell a great deal about how some/most females think by how they act. And I say female, not woman because you can distinguish the gender of most animals by how they act. I observe nature, daily; the human animals, and other animals as well. I have done this for the past eight years with few exceptions.

Here are other characteristics to take notice of when observing the women among us. Now ladies you know it is true, now don’t you. But if my observations are not correct and I have misinterpreted my data, this is where you should correct the error in my analysis. Now men and boys here is what you do. Watch the movement of her body and look at her from head to toe and you will see what they consider their best assets. This would be your focus. Pay special attention to how they move and where they place their hands. And remember, it is not so much what they say as much as it is how they say it and, of course, every move sends some kind of message. At times, it comes from the subconscious and they are not even aware of it. It is nature, it is natural and that is how we were created to be.

When a woman or girl know you have homed in on them, even before you speak, your eyes will have done the heavy lifting. The eyes, alone, can draw the object of your affection straight into your head. Once the eyes lock not a word has to be said. Male or female nature will take its course. It is the connecting of souls and the meeting of minds. Even so, there are women who will look—on the sly—and see you looking at them and they then pretend to not see you. They will turn their heads and try to distract themselves with self-control. They will play with their hair, look at their watch or start fiddling with their phone or act as if there is a thing of interest somewhere else. They are afraid of their feelings.

We see with our eyes and envision with our mind and we will feel what comes next. You either act on your feeling or move on and just let it be. The image and what you have been thinking will move further back in your memory, but one thing you cannot do is “unsee” what you have seen. And you cannot “unfeel” the feelings. It will be with you and so will the feelings. Feelings that are as natural as the air that we breathe. Do not feel guilt from thinking and feeling what you do. Yes, it has been made almost taboo to think and feel some of the things that we do. But one thing that is for sure, no one can know other than you what is on your mind. They only know how you act. And yes, there are some, unfortunately, who do not trust themselves to be looked at nor look.

Depending on the relationship, you may not be “allowed” to let your eyes go where they want to go.  Whether you are married, single, a relative or friend your eyes are there to do just one thing, to see. Of course, when your eyes move, you have then acted on your feelings. It is, for sure, at this point where you will know if your analysis of what you see is correct, or not.

What you see at a distance may not look the same up close. Fantasy is built on the wings of imagination. And some things are enjoyed best from afar. What you see is what you get, but is it what you want.

                       The Eyes Are Talking

See-Eyes Can TalkI would say that it is just human if we were the only ones with a mating ritual. We are not, of course, for the attraction to the opposite sex is what keeps creation, evolution and life alive.  Without the desire to “mate” and the feeling during and at the climax of intercourse, there would be no sex. It is the incentive that was created in us and almost all living things. The strongest drive that we have, and it is core “mechanism” of our survival is the desire for sex. And the accelerant is what we see and how we feel when we see it. The “original” man would copulate, almost on the spot, for the furtherance of the species. The drive appears to have been stronger then out of necessity. And of course, there was no shame. It was much like you see other animal mate today. Whenever aroused, and I am all but sure that it was quite often, nature would take its course, any time or any place.

By nature, sex it is still at the core of the creation of life and is the base of survival of the species. In the beginning, sex more likely than not was the sole reason for wanting to mate. Not so much love and affection. We are now as we were then; attracted first, by what we see. And what we see can have a different effect on you than on me. You may find an average to “lower weight” person more attractive. For me, I may appreciate the qualities of a larger mate. What you see as pretty, I may not like as much or at all. It is how each of us perceive what we see, and want.

They say it is not nice to stare, but who is staring? How would you know? Perhaps it is just a coincidental look or glance; not everyone is on the make. Some have tried and all have failed to make what is a natural thing to do against the law—to be illegal. The ones who do not care for the natural state of “man” and what we do, say that we should be punished or fined for lingering when we look at the female form. They call it ogling, “reckless eyeballing,” or some such thing. Others have suggested that it is an invasion of a woman or girls privacy. I say do not invite me in if you do not want me to stay, at least for a while. We, female and male alike, usually will not focus long on that, which turns us off or are not appealing to our libidinous taste. Our minds are always on the prowl for at least something to think, it is what it does. It could be for most anything that it is aware of.

You try so hard to be attractive and go to great lengths to make it so. Then when it is not the object of your affection or someone you find “attractive” who looks your way some of you are offended. Hold up, this can be man or woman, girl or boy. It’s as if the only eyes that are allowed to see you are the ones you want. That is not being real no matter how you look at it. Take the bitter with the sweet, they both can be a treat, and at the right time and place, it could be said quite neat.

We will not bend nature to our will. It is by nature that we have the ability to hear, taste, touch, smell, and yes see. And what we see can do what no other of the senses can do; bring on the heat. It is a fire that burns within us, it is the warmth by which we live. When the fire dies down, so does your desire.

But for some, the fire burns more bright and longer than for others. You may say this is all just being an animal. Sure, you are right, that is exactly what you are. We act as if we are so civilized. If you want to know how we are not, observe another animal species and then you will know.

Mating By Instinct and The Sense of Smell

Tools for Life

Tools for Life

The Sense of Sex

This is the first in a five-part series on the senses. The five basic senses are smell, hearing, sight, taste and touch. They let us live and are the means to be in contact with the world around us. They make life what it is, without them, we could not survive. You have to be in contact with your world to be in touch with your Self. We live by our senses. They tell the brain what they have seen, heard, tasted, smelled and felt. Then the brain sends commands to the body. The senses are tools for the brain. They are the means by which we receive outside information for the brain to evaluate and respond.

Baby Birth 2First up will be smell, yes the olfactory of them all. There is some disagreement, though not by me, on which sense is the most developed at birth. It is thought by some that it is the sense of touch. Others, I included, say that it is the sense of smell. Young Black Girl with BabyIt is well-known that newborns know their mothers by their scent; how they smell. It is what no other has, the “scent of a woman,” and they can tell. And let us be frank, there is no wonder why when you consider the path to birth. There are smells that you just cannot forget, and for me, I do not want to, ever. Though, I would say it is more an aroma that stirs the soul. That tantalizing smell of the female will not be mistaken, no matter how long you may have “been away.” Just with a whiff, you know. It is the most powerful odor there is. This surely was not by mistake. The journey of our creation starts there and our birth ends there. It was designed to be that way.

Baby Birth 4There is a biological reason why the sense of smell is the most developed at birth. It is that we may survive and procreate. And no matter your beliefs, it is as we were created to be. Recent research (http://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/restoring-microbes-infants-born-cesarean-section) has shown that Babies delivered via the birth canal acquire a microbial community (microbiota) that resembles that of their mother’s vagina. Babies born by cesarean section tend to acquire a microbial community that more closely resembles that of their mother’s skin. The microbiota acquired by a newborn are thought to be essential for the development of a healthy immune system and metabolism.

I could go into all of the details but I will summarize to focus on the benefits. Vaginal birth provides protection for the baby that cesarean birth does not; though, as the research shows, exposure to the Mother’s vaginal fluids after birth does provide some of this protection. Now, what does this have to do with the sense of smell. Here is where I take over.

Baby Birth 9The baby who travels the length of the Mother’s birth canal certainly would be fully immersed in the smell of the vagina. It is in the vagina where the most contact will occur with the baby’s nose and mouth. The scent cannot but make a lasting impact on the mind and memory. It is as it is meant to be. It would not be otherwise. The male and female are different and so would be the effect.

It is unfortunate that women—mothers or not—are now covering up and trying to rid themselves of the smell that is a part of who they are. The woman has been made to feel shame of her body and scent. It is so sad. For we need the human smell to remind us that we are. And we wonder why it seems that man and woman are not as attracted to each other, as they once were. It is not the same. There is no denying it. There really should be no wonder or reason to ask why. But there is. Why does it seem that there is some hidden hand that is trying to pull us apart. Whose agenda is it? When we interfere with nature, nature will talk back.

Smell the Body

Smell the Body

We are born with our senses and for good reason. It is so that we may live. And we have to provide the stimulation for them to carry out the roles that have been assigned to them. So, when you smell it, taste it, see it, hear it and feel it you will know. It is for us then to create, invent and discover those things that awaken and give life to the senses. We have to put a name on people, places and things to know what and who they are when we meet them again. One thing for sure though, we have been stimulated by each other, just as we are, from the beginning. The most intimate senses, of course, are the sense of smell and touch. When you feel it, you will believe it. And the sense of smell tells us much about things in our environment even when we cannot see, hear, taste or touch them. Though, smell does affect our taste and the things we are attracted to or repulsed by, which prompts me to ask, have we covered up our natural smell to the point that man and woman have lost their natural attraction to each other.

How does the sense of smell work?

Smell is a very direct sense. In order to smell something and know what it is, the scent, with the least amount of adulteration, has to make its way to the nose. The sense of smell brings us into harmony with nature, and sharpens our awareness of other people, places and things. It can influence our mood, help us to respond to those we meet, who we want to be near and who we want to see again. Our sense of smell is not as accurate as that of some animals. This is what “they” say. Well, the animals are not dumb at all. They use their sense of smell for finding a receptive mate and mating partners. The very same thing we use to do in the beginning. Being civilized now, and human, I guess we think it is not needed anymore. We cover up our natural scent with all sorts of perfumes, lotions and potions.

Certain scents, that still smell the same, can remind us of past relationships and people we have known. They can stir memories that you may have once thought forgotten. Some scents make a picture come into our minds. Some make us feel relaxed; others make us feel excited. There are still segments of the science community that hold on to the notion, for I believe that is all that it is, that other mammals use a separate set of sensory receptor cells in their nose to receive social and sexual information from members of their own species. I say, we do to. It would not seem so to some because we have stepped away from our natural self. At times, it is hard to tell what is real.

The social behavior of most animals is controlled by smells and other chemical signals. We are losing our ability to smell nature’s scents. We have invaded our sense organ (the nose) with all kinds of chemical concoctions to make ourselves smell better. And this often suppresses our awareness of what our nose tells us. Many have been taught that there is something shameful about body odor. I do not embrace this teaching. People who actually use their senses of smell to test things usually say that they “sniff” whatever substance they are testing. And there are “sniffers” or should I say, those who like to sniff.

Kissing CoupleYou hear it said that men are visual creatures and this may be so, but smell of the female body drives the average, even less than average, man wild with desire. It makes the heart race, the pulse quicken and without intervention will explode to an orgasmic finish, many times at the blink of an eye. Let me set up a scenario that was not at all uncommon in years gone by. There is likely no such need today as things are more easily done. It was all you had in your toolbox and you had to go there when all else failed. Back in the teen days when you have found a place with just enough privacy to be with the girl of your desires  the girl of which your hormones have led you to is when you pulled out that line used by so many boys. This would usually be in the backseat of  a car, a room away from the parents or just about anywhere that would accommodate two teenage bodies in heat.

The atmosphere would be charged up with hormones and adolescent lust of desire where begging was the norm. You could not ease your way to where you wanted to go because of the one thing that stood in your way, the forever despised girdle. The small girls would even wear them as a defense against the probing mind and body parts of the teenage male. As much as you try, you are getting nowhere further than kissing, rubbing and hugging but there was always that last angle to play. At this point you were in agony and you needed to release. Well, OK, OK, then, just let me smell it, let me put my finger in it. And surprise, more times than not this would lead to where you wanted to go all along. Need I say you would delay washing your finger for as long as you could hold out. My point is, it is nature it is in us, not by us but for us. No one taught you this, no one told you. It is just in you as a male. Your nose would take you there. To a man it is more aroma than smell. It can make you weak in the knees and firm in the joints. It all seems to be fading away in the fog of body washes, and summers eve.

Body Odor

Mating: when mating first took flight it was helped by instinct and smell. In this day and time, of course, we try to cover up as best we can our natural aroma. Man and woman likely did not look that different from each other so it would not have been looks or some special getup or hair style that fired up the desire for sex. Or romance. Unlike today, man and woman did not have sex face to face, which came to be known as the missionary position. So named because early missionaries advocated the position as “proper” to primitive Peoples, to whom the practice was unknown. I believe this to be legend. Though it would be interesting to know how this really came to be. And as far as I know, no other animal do the do while facing each other.

Yes we are animals and  man and woman were covered with hair, for good reason, with just four things of note setting them apart. Those things that made the difference, of course, were the sex organs and the female breast. It had, and has to be this way for the survival of the species. And, of course, without perky and firm breast how would a newborn eat? Whether we believe we were created or evolved, we could not be the same. We had to be different to be. Man and woman were built to accommodate each other, for mating. The penis and vagina were not born by accident.  Survival and sex (reproduction) are our strongest drives and they are with us from the start. Some choose to deny it, some run from it and others rush to embrace it.

Just a little sniff will go a long way. Leave your mark and men will follow you—that is—if they can smell you. Sex is in our nature as living beings. And so is our scent.

Do You Know Why You Did That

Enlightenment The Messenger (shopped) 1-3-16You and Your Mind

(what a pair)

When you are not sure of what is on your mind and exactly what you think, you will not have confidence in what you say and do. Thinking is not a problem for any of us—we all do it—but what we think can be. When you think your mind is telling you what it wants to do with your thoughts. But, unless you make the decision, you cannot be sure the right one has been made.

You should listen to your mind. And if it is not what is best for you, this is when you tell your mind what you are going to do. You rule your mind. It should never be in charge of what you do and say. The mind and the self—the Self is you—should always agree before decisions are made. That is the way it has to be. Any other way will result in disordered thinking and an uncertain outcome. Never, with no exceptions, do or say a thing that will cause you to act in a way that is harmful to you and your best interest.

When left to itself, the mind has no power of its own; it is powered by the world in which it exists. Thinking is what feeds the mind and tells it what to do and your thoughts are what you think. At which time you, or you and your mind decide what actions to take. How you act is how others know you for they cannot know what you are thinking. No one, not a Psychiatrist, Psychologist or any “wise one” can read your mind. Though many do not subscribe to the following truth it is true nonetheless: We are known and judged, yes judged, by our behavior and how we act. You cannot act before you think and once you do what you have done, it cannot be taken back. Think as long as it takes and if for whatever reason you feel rushed, do not make a decision until you have the time to understand your thoughts. You must think as long as you need to make the best decision for you.

You have friends, neighbors, people you work with, and too many times relatives who act in a way you prefer they did not. But for good or bad, better or worse, you but in a few such times, do not control what they do. Each one of us is solely responsible for the things we do, or not. Of course there are some who try to take matters into their own hands. They use various ways and means to influence the behavior of others and there are times it may seem to work; however, unless it is what they wanted to do, you can never know for sure when they will not. You cannot depend on coercion to have your way with others. It is a mind thing.

The mind is meant to explore the possibilities, to wonder, to create, and to consider what is and what can be. There is no limit where the mind will go, so there are times when you have to call it back. Perceptions are formed in the mind for us to have thoughts to think. Our thoughts are based on what we receive. And it is all recorded by the brain. The memory is no more or less good or bad than the “trigger” to turn it on. You will remember if there is reason to do so. Memory has not shown that there is a ranking for its use as thought has. There is no order of recall. It all comes to us by direct thought.

Our senses will call on our memories when we have a need to know. Of course, we have no memory of things we have not been aware of, yet. Our mind is where we think our thoughts and it suggests to us what to do. We have the choice to overrule the mind if need be.

The mind is the master of thought. And we are the master of the mind. Once we are aware, we have a thought. The power of the brain is what guides our lives. It is the first organ to grow from the seed of life. Encased by the skull bone it is the most protected. It is the command post for all of our actions. What we fail to realize, at times, is that it provides us with all we need to do our own thinking.

You have to listen to learn and learn to listen. Are you listening now.

Learn To Do More With The One You Have

Black Head with Labeled Brain

The Command Center

The power of the brain is what guides our lives. It is the first organ to grow from the seed of life. The foundation for the brain is set early. Three weeks after conception, a sheet of embryonic cells called the neural plate folds and fuses into the neural tube. This tissue will become the central nervous system. The brain’s “master” role is evident by nature. Encased by the skull bone, it is our most protected organ and is the command center for all of our actions. What we fail to realize, at times, is that it provides us with all we need to do our own thinking. “Use your head.”

The brain is made up of physical parts and has a mind of its own. Once the brain knows it does not forget unless that is what it wants to do. More times than not, it is to protect us. Of course, when there is damage to the brain, which can happen, it is not so clear.

The brain records all things that are of our world and there is no erase button on board to be used. It can figure it out. It is, of its own design, this is, as I believe it to be. As much as we know, there is still little known about how the brain works. I think that there is no way we will understand all there is to know. That is because it is not meant to be. Humans would be in charge, and we know how well we do when we are.

Our brains have the same makeup, but different—as we are—in what it can do for us. Our thoughts are one of them. As long as there is the power of thought, we will be learning about how we think, and the workings of the brain. There can be no end. Just as it is with life, there will always be much left to learn; although, when there are no longer thoughts to think there is no more life to live. The end of thought means there is no more. Life, as we know it is over. The brain no longer works. It is dead.

For a detailed description (by Encarta) of the brain, continue reading below:

The brain is the control center for every activity necessary to survival.

The adult human brain is made up of approximately 100 billion neurons (nerve cells), neuroglia (supporting-tissue) cells and other tissues. Neurons transmit and analyze all communication within the brain and other parts of the nervous system. Neuroglial cells are twice as numerous as neurons and provide structural support to the neurons. Three protective meninges (membranes) cover the brain. A clear liquid, the cerebrospinal fluid, surrounds the entire brain and protects the internal portion from varying pressures. This fluid also transports chemical substances within the nervous system.

The brain appears as three connected parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem. Two other major parts, the thalamus and the hypothalamus, lie above the brain stem underneath the cerebellum. Most high-level brain functions take place in the cerebrum. Its two large hemispheres are divided into five lobes: the frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobes and the insula. The cerebrum receives information from the sense organs and sends motor commands (signals that stimulate activity in the muscles or glands) to other parts of the brain and the body. Many areas of the cerebral cortex (surface) correspond to specific functions, such as vision, hearing, speech, emotions, thinking, and remembering.

The cerebellum coordinates body movements. It is divided into two lobes connected by a bundle of white fibers. The cerebellum coordinates voluntary movements by fine-tuning motor commands from the cerebrum. The cerebellum also maintains posture and balance by controlling muscle tone and sensing limb positions.

The thalamus and the hypothalamus connect the cerebrum to the brain stem. The thalamus relays sensory signals to and from the cerebral cortex. All sensory input to the brain, except the sense of smell, connects to the thalamus. The hypothalamus lies beneath the thalamus and regulates vital drives and activities, such as eating, drinking, sleep, emotional behavior, and sexual activity. It also controls the internal organs, interacts closely with the pituitary gland, and helps coordinate brain stem activities.

The brain stem is responsible for sustaining the basic functions of life, such as breathing and blood pressure. It contains relay stations for neurons transmitting signals to the cerebral cortex, as well as many reflex centers— pathways carrying sensory information and motor commands. Sensory and motor nerve fibers connecting the brain with the rest of the body cross over to the opposite side in the brain stem. The left half of the brain communicates with the right half of the body and the right half of the brain with the left half of the body.

Twelve pairs of cranial nerves connect the brain with the head and neck. Some are motor nerves, controlling muscle movement. Some are sensory nerves, conveying information from the sense organs. Others contain fibers for both sensory and motor impulses.

Taste of the Body Sweet

(The Sense of Taste)

 

Taste is one of the five traditional senses. It is the sensation produced when a substance in the mouth reacts chemically with receptors of taste buds. The sensation of taste has been categorized into five basic tastes. Well, I am here to add another one.

The taste of the body sweet is like no other and you will see. Not sweet as in the food that you eat or she is such a sweet little child is that not neat. No, I am talking about grown up in the heat of passion sweet. It is the first sweet flavor known to man. Sweetmeat, the kind that will make you tell your mother to stay out of your business. Such a delicacy is this meat, you will when you partake, say to yourself, this is the best meat I ever ate. It will make you get up early in the morning and stay up late at night. When you taste it, you know that all is right. The body sweet is an experience not everyone has the finesse to enjoy. It is not the side dish; it is part of the main course. Our tongue and the roof of our mouth are covered with thousands of tiny taste buds. It is no wonder that we can taste as well as we do. And taste is the way we know it’s good.

    Some TongueIt Is How You Think

Some Tongue
It Is How You Think

We have between 2000 and 5000 taste buds and each one of them knows what it likes. Taste and smell work hand in hand, the smell draws you there and the taste makes sure you stay. There is not a thing better to satisfy a man size hunger than a healthy serving of savory meat. Don’t bring a knife, you do not need a fork, for this meat is so tender you can enjoy it the way that it is. After all, it is the body sweet. You may ask what is it about it that makes it so swell, if you do not know it is best that I not tell. When you see a couple and it shows that they are in bliss, it is no secret to them what is up with this. Yes, that’s right; they know the taste of the body sweet. It is good for her and it is good to him why would you need more when you have it within. It was created for us not by us.

When we eat something, the saliva in our mouth helps break down our food. This causes the receptor cells in our tastes buds to send messages through sensory nerves to our brain. Our brain then tells us what flavors we are tasting. But how would you know if the brain is confused by the things you add and put on to make it taste and look better. You cannot know how good it is until you know what you’ve got. Organic is the best for us to eat. No chemical, additives or things that are not natural, which is the way we are meant to be. Taste is the weakest of the five senses. This is what they say. For this reason, and some more, the smell and sight must be right for the truest taste to make its way to you. “When people talk about their taste, they’re really talking about the smell rather than the taste,” said Dr. Scott P. Stringer, chairperson of the otolaryngology department at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. This is true there is no doubt, but the smell that is good to you, have to pass the test of taste for the flavor to come through.

Now, some swear off meat and say they would never have it on their plate. Well that is a right and for them it is best. Because to get the best out of what we do, we have to appreciate it for what it is. We are mind, body and soul. We smell, touch and taste the body sweet, and we do not have to be told. Our mind and our soul is another thing, they belong to each one of us. So if you want to know what is on my mind, you have to talk with me. If you would rather not, just watch what I say and do, it is how I think. And as for the soul, the soul is our core. It is who we are.

So, go on and do your thing. What is for you may not be for me, and the things I say and do may not be for you. We are male and female the way we were made to be, I for you and you for me. If that is the way, you want it to be. There is not a thing about us we should not explore, for we are all we have until we are gone. After you and I are here no more, all we know is that it will be the end. You should not and I will not as well, let there be a day when we say, my only regret is that I did not do it my way. Those who rather not partake of the bountiful feast will be quick to give you a reason why you should not. We have but one life and it was given to us for us to live, for this no one else can do. This you must believe.

The Taste of You

The Taste of You

Remember, now, and this is important, a woman has more taste buds than a man does. So taste up the body sweet. After it is all said and done, it is how you think.

How Much Time Do You Have

Time is What You Have

Time is What You Have

for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one… 

Albert Einstein

 

Time is like the wind you cannot see, we only see what it does. Do we really know what time it is?

—James R. Smith-Yarbrough

 

What is it that makes time so important? Why do we speak about it like no other. There are times what we say about time does not make sense. It is time, your time, my time, what time is it, now is the time. You will not know when it is time do a thing until it is done. How many times have you said it is time and it was not? If it has become reality then it was the time. One thing for sure, we live for time. Without it, there would be no space for things to go. Time is space. And all things that exist do so in space. There has to be room to exist. Space was here when we arrived. We are the occupiers. We do not touch space, we only move around in it. We live when it is given.

Time, as we know it, is a concept of “man.” And there are many who cut their time short. You would certainly think so when you look at some of the things that people do.

Time Is What Space Is

No matter what time it is time does not change. What happens in the space of time does. Time is not changing, we are. This is what I believe. For you and me, it is personal. It starts for each of us when we are created by our parents and is not shared. You cannot lend nor can you borrow time. And your time is the only time you will have. More time will not be given when you have no more. Time, though, is just not as important as what you do with it. When you think of the time that you have, the first thing you should think of is what you are going to do with it. What is just as important, is how you feel while you are doing it. To get the most from the time you have been given, you must understand what it is and how to use it wisely. The longer it takes to know what to do the less time you have to do it. Because for sure, we will not get it back. Our life moves on even when our mind does not. You can “live” in the past. You can never be there.

There are two kinds of time in my way of thinking. It is the time that was given to each of us—our own time—and universal time/space, which is the greatest of all; it was created. It does not change. What I am saying maybe more clear if it is thought of in terms of the world, at least, as we now know it to be. There are seven world time zones. The United States uses nine standard zones. Therefore, the question is, what time is the right time? With every area of the world having its own time zones, how can you know what time it is. Neither of them is correct when next to the other. Time that can change is invented by man. It is never the same and is not correct. The time that is, which is the time of nature, will always be. If we had the power over the nature of time, what would we do with it, where would we put it? Would we add a little here, take a little there? For sure, it would be the last step to the end. Wars would be fought over it, it would be stolen, and some would lie, cheat and steal to get more of it. Those with no power would get none.

You should not make your decisions based on time. Time will not do a thing on its own. Decide what you want to do, then make time to do it. This should be the order of how you decide. No matter how much time you have, if you do not know what you are going to do with it, you will not know how much you need. What matters is how you are going to fill the space. If you bake a cake for the required time but use the wrong ingredients, you will not get the cake that you want. What you would have, then, is a cake you cannot eat and time you no longer have. This time was your time. Let us take a look at nature’s time. In a room there are things, they come and go, some are added some are removed. It makes no difference what time these things are moved or changed, the space does not. Time is space. And there is a time for all things.

What clock do you watch to know what time it is?

The segment of time was born by us. The clock on the wall has less to do with the outcome than what we do. The concept of our view of time was imposed on us by us. All things live by the time and will of nature. Though we are the ones’ who live by the clock. We do need it to keep things in order. Just to know why we are where we are at all times. It is a means to know the ebb and flow of life. On a whole, it is a way to monitor and control how and when things are done. It is one of the things a society must do.

A system of time for each of us starts to tick when we are conceived. This is when life starts. There is a time to be born, a time to live and a time to move on. Once we are, there is a time for all things. We do not know the future. We do live for the promise. We do not control time. We do have control of how we live our life. Time does not change things happen. It will be the same no matter the clock on the wall. Time is whole,  as it is with space. We will not divide it. There is but one time and it is the same all the time. It is life, it is nature, and it is one.

We may ask much of time, but time does not give. The question asked most, is for more. Time will not answer. It gives not to what we have to say. It stands still, though we do not. We cannot stop it, slow it down or speed it up. Nor can we waste it. The thing that we can do with time is live it. When there is no more time, there is no more to live. We do not start it over. Time goes on our time does not. We should live our time. We cannot get it back once it is gone. Time for all things was here before us and shall be when we are gone. It will be for all time. It is the only thing out of all things that we can depend on. If all things are removed, what is left is the space of time. There is never a void in time. It has been full from the start. In the beginning, there was space for all things.

We are the master of the time we have. Each of us has been blessed with a lifetime. All lives are one. No two are the same. Not one breathes the same breath. When we can, we decide what to do with our lives. This tells the type of life we will have and the path we will follow. As straight as this may be, there are many who do not understand this simple truth. They still try—but can never succeed—to live their lives for and through others. The only thing that you do when you do this is live your time away. Live it, do not live it away. Our time is the only time we have. Do not say I cannot do it for me, I will let someone else do it. No one can do for you what only you can do for yourself.

We never know how much time we have to use the time we have. Time should always be put to its best use. When you do not know what to do next, do what you know now. Your next step should never be rushed or forced. We can never breathe the next breath. It is not for us to know it all. It is for us to know what we need to know. The time of man is not precise. When a thing will be can never be known. Just as it can never be known when it will not. All that we can do is plan. The future is not ours to know. It can be over just when we think we do. Not a thing that was created not to be changed can be changed. The existence of life is one of them. If this is not so, who would turn off the lights after we know how and there is no more to see. It is not within our reach. We Humans did not create life. We were created by it to create, a life. The nature of life will not be changed by us. It is not for us to do. We are still learning how to think.

We will be learning about how we think and the workings of the brain as long as there is the power of thought. There can be no end. Just as it is with life, there will always be much left to learn. It would be a lofty goal to want to know why there is life. To think we can know this is reveals a great deal, about how we think. And it is a road with no end, as well. We are yet to discover why one would take a life. Just to indicate how far we are from these great feats, researchers who study the brain are still trying to figure out why we sleep. Sleep, a thing that seems so basic to know. We have dreams and no one knows why. Time is what we need and we know we have that. What we do not and will not know, is how much.

The Brain Very Much the Same How We Use it Makes the Difference

I Am

For You Too

 

 

 

The power of the brain is what guides our lives. It is the first organ to grow from the seed of life. The foundation for the brain is set early. Three weeks after conception, a sheet of embryonic cells called the neural plate folds and fuses into the neural tube. This tissue will become the central nervous system. The brain’s “master” role is evident by nature. Encased by the skull bone, it is our most protected organ and is the command center for all of our actions. What we fail to realize, at times, is that it provides us with all we need to do our own thinking. “Use your head.”

The brain is made up of physical parts and has a mind of its own. Once the brain knows it does not forget unless that is what it wants to do. More times than not, it is to protect us. Of course, when there is damage to the brain, which can happen, it is not so clear.

The brain records all things that are of our world and there is no erase button on board to be used. It can figure it out. It is, of its own design, this is, as I believe it to be. As much as we know, there is still little known about how the brain works. I think that there is no way we will understand all there is to know. That is because it is not meant to be. Humans would be in charge, and we know how well we do when we are.

Our brains have the same makeup, but different—as we are—in what it can do for us. Our thoughts are one of them. As long as there is the power of thought, we will be learning about how we think, and the workings of the brain. There can be no end. Just as it is with life, there will always be much left to learn. The end of thought means there is no more. Life, as we know it is over. The brain no longer works. It is dead.

For a detailed description (by Encarta) of the brain, continue reading below:

The brain is the control center for every activity necessary to survival.

The adult human brain is made up of approximately 100 billion neurons (nerve cells), neuroglia (supporting-tissue) cells and other tissues. Neurons transmit and analyze all communication within the brain and other parts of the nervous system. Neuroglial cells are twice as numerous as neurons and provide structural support to the neurons. Three protective meninges (membranes) cover the brain. A clear liquid, the cerebrospinal fluid, surrounds the entire brain and protects the internal portion from varying pressures. This fluid also transports chemical substances within the nervous system.

The brain appears as three connected parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem. Two other major parts, the thalamus and the hypothalamus, lie above the brain stem underneath the cerebellum. Most high-level brain functions take place in the cerebrum. Its two large hemispheres are divided into five lobes: the frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobes and the insula. The cerebrum receives information from the sense organs and sends motor commands (signals that stimulate activity in the muscles or glands) to other parts of the brain and the body. Many areas of the cerebral cortex (surface) correspond to specific functions, such as vision, hearing, speech, emotions, thinking, and remembering.

The cerebellum coordinates body movements. It is divided into two lobes connected by a bundle of white fibers. The cerebellum coordinates voluntary movements by fine-tuning motor commands from the cerebrum. The cerebellum also maintains posture and balance by controlling muscle tone and sensing limb positions.

The thalamus and the hypothalamus connect the cerebrum to the brain stem. The thalamus relays sensory signals to and from the cerebral cortex. All sensory input to the brain, except the sense of smell, connects to the thalamus. The hypothalamus lies beneath the thalamus and regulates vital drives and activities, such as eating, drinking, sleep, emotional behavior, and sexual activity. It also controls the internal organs, interacts closely with the pituitary gland, and helps coordinate brain stem activities.

The brain stem is responsible for sustaining the basic functions of life, such as breathing and blood pressure. It contains relay stations for neurons transmitting signals to the cerebral cortex, as well as many reflex centers— pathways carrying sensory information and motor commands. Sensory and motor nerve fibers connecting the brain with the rest of the body cross over to the opposite side in the brain stem. The left half of the brain communicates with the right half of the body and the right half of the brain with the left half of the body.

Twelve pairs of cranial nerves connect the brain with the head and neck. Some are motor nerves, controlling muscle movement. Some are sensory nerves, conveying information from the sense organs. Others contain fibers for both sensory and motor impulses.
