We Are Living Brains

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from The New York Times): “Researchers have discovered that words describing motion also stimulate regions of the brain distinct from language-processing areas. In a study led by the cognitive scientist Véronique Boulenger, of the Laboratory of Language Dynamics in France, the brains of participants were scanned as they read sentences like ‘John grasped the object’ and ‘Pablo kicked the ball.’ The scans revealed activity in the motor cortex, which coordinates the body’s movements. What’s more, this activity was concentrated in one part of the motor cortex when the movement described was arm-related and in another part when the movement concerned the leg.

“The brain, it seems, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated.”

My Comment: We exist as eternal creatures in the eternal space from which we sense fragments in accordance with our development. Kabbalah is designed to develop us to the full revelation of everything that exists. To the extent of development, we are changing the sense of self and the world around us, up to the sensation of everything existing in one whole object: all of infinity. We are currently going through a transition phase of perception of our dimension (three-dimensional, time-movement-place-the source of existence) to ten-dimensional (three lines, Tzimtzum Bet, etc) and then, at the end of correction, to infinity.

  1. Maybe you have already heard about the neurobiologist Giacommo Rizzolatti, who received the 2011 “Principe de Asturias Reward” for his reaserch in a special kind of neurons called mirror neurons. He jointly with other two colleagues, have shown, that this type of neurons are prepared and are waiting for understanding and empathize with others. They make us understand and feel what we see others do. The same brain areas that get activated in somedody doing a specific action is also activated in the observer.
