One of my friends recently sent me this great quote, which I share with you
“One of the most prominent characteristics of our left brain is its ability to weave stories. This storyteller portion of our left mind’s language centre; is specifically designed to make sense of the world outside of us, based on minimal amounts of information. It functions, by taking whatever details it has to work with, and then weaves them together in the form of a story.
Most impressively, our left brain, is brilliant, in its ability to make stuff up, and fill in the blanks when there are gaps in its factual data.
In addition, during its process of generating a story line, our left mind is quite the genius in its ability to manufacture alternative scenarios. And if it’s a subject you really feel passionate about, either good or awful, it’s particularly effective at hooking into those circuits of emotion and exhausting all the “what if” possiblities.”
