Das Gehirn ist nicht eine Hardware, die mit dem Geist als Software ausgerüstet ist, sondern beides spielt auf eine untrennbare und sehr komplizierte Weise zusammen.
We need both these processes [of each brain hemisphere]. We need division and we need union, but those two need also to be unified.
The left hemisphere is always engaged in a purpose: it always has an end in view, and downgrades whatever has no instrumental purpose in sight. The right hemisphere, by contrast, has no designs on anything. It is vigilant for whatever is, a relationship of con-
Wenn ein Axon des Neurons A nahe genug an einem Neuron B liegt, so dass Neuron B wiederholt oder anhaltend von Neuron A erregt wird, so wird die Effizienz von Neuron A für die Erregung von Neuron B durch Wachstumsprozesse oder eine Stoffwechseländerung in beiden oder einem der beiden Neurone erhöht. Somit sind erfahrungsbedingte Veränderungen im Nervensystem von bestimmten Bedingungen abhängig.

The bilateral division of the brain occurred very early on in evolution.2
Both hemispheres are needed for human survival and mental health. Due to their anatomical and functional differentiation, they are neither equivalent nor redundant. They function each in a distinct way and together as an integrated whole.
In general, the two hemispheres of the human brain both perform the same (not distinct) functions in distinct
⚑ the right hemisphere is primary
⚑ whereas both hemispheres are meant to work together.
⚑ When the left and the right brains share their different but complementary perspectives on the world and
cooperate with each other intellectual and spiritual progress toward wholeness is ensured.
Since the time of the ancient Greeks the dichotomy of the Apollonian and Dionysian mindframes has not been solved in Western civilization. The "unconscious" battle between the brain hemispheres extended to reductionist-mechanistic cultural and societal developments resulting in a gravely imbalanced Western culture.

A brain center complex covers four brain circuits at once:
The healthy development of this complex in infants depends on the constant reliable presence of a non stressed emotionally available parenting care giver.
Endorphins are natural opiates (morphin like substances) produced in and by the body. They are chemicals to enhance joy and love as well as to soothe pain and supply reward.
⚑ Endorphins are essential for physical and emotional pain relief.
⚑ Endorphins support the immune system to fight off diseases.
⚑ Endorphins are connected with the feeling of reward (satisfaction).
⚑ Endorphins are love chemicals present when infants connect with their parents.
⚑ Endorphins are present with the feeling (state) of joy and elation.
Food, sex, drugs (i.e. opiates, antidepressants) are substitutes to suppress physical pain and emotional stress and to give reward (in search of joy and love). The abusive intake of these means may lead to addictions. When impulse control and stress control are damaged as well it's hard to overcome addictions induced by deficiently developed brain circuits.
Leonard Shlain, M.D. (1937-2009) was a US American polymath, researcher, chairman of laparoscopic surgery, associate professor of surgery at the UC San Francisco and writer. An avid reader and storyteller, he was able to keep many stories and facts which he had picked up in mind. He could make sense out of them by sequencing them anew.
Attempting to understand the right brain/left brain dichotomy, he found that the most creative people are found among: wo-men, homosexuals, bald-headed men in early age, color-blinds and lefthanded ones.
In various societies the population consists of
⚑ about 51% women and
⚑ 8-11% are homosexuals, lefthanders, young bald men and color-blind men.
Apparently these more rare conditions result in a much broader corpus callosum, the bridge between both hemispheres of their brains. The brain halves of women, gays, bald men, lefthanders, and color-blind are more closely interlaced than those of heterosexual, righthanded, haired men.
Assymmetries in male/female biology – availing an advantage in hunting
Humans were hunters and gatherers for 99% of their their metahistorical existence. The human species exhibit the most expressive homosexuality among all species. Why? To provide meat to the tribe, especially to iron deficient women.
The myth that balded men are sexier than the haired men results from their hunting advantage to bring home more meat.

Differing language skills between men and women
With women in general (incl. lesbians), lefties, color-blind, bald headed men, gays, and memory superbrains the distribution of language skills is much less one-sided. They have a bigger corpus callosum which serves them to communicate their emotions – stored in the right brain and mostly translated and expressed via the left brain – in a more explicit way.
Females have at least twenty percent more neurons than males in the brain's Broca area (where language is produced), and up to 18% more volume in the Wernicke's area (where language is interpreted).
During infancy girls develop first the left hemisphere which is the brain's language center for most people whereas the order is reversed for boys which allows them to develop their spatial ability.
95% of the language skills of straight man are in the left brain (so called masculine side), whereas only 5% thereof are in the right hemisphere (so called feminine side). Among elderly stroke victims, women recover their speech much more quickly than men. A stroke in the left hemisphere of the brain leaves heterosexual men devastated as their speech faculty is basically gone.
Girls talk earlier than boys, have a larger pre-school vocabulary, and form more complex sentences. In school, they are one to one-and-a-half years ahead of boys in reading and writing, verbal memory and fluency, and spelling. Boys are twice as likely to have a language or reading problem and three to four times more likely to stutter. On average, girls utter two to three times more words per day than boys and speak faster (twice as many words per minute).
Musical abilities reside predominantly in the right hemisphere of the brain. The right parietal lobe and the right frontal lobe light up with trained musicians who are able to play music by ear. When a musician has learned how to write and to read music his right and left brains light up. The emotional aspects of music are received by the right brain, the tempo of music is perceived by the left brain.
Dyslexic children are predominantly male. The ratio of dyslexia is 9 boys and 1 girl. Possibly due to a failure of hemispheric dominance they find it difficult to decipher the alphabet, a leftbrained activity. Traditionally, 90% of the language centers reside in the left hemisphere of right-handed people. In a right-handed dyslexic, the distribution of language centers is found to be 80/20 or 70/30. Dyslexia seems to have erupted with the introduction of the image-dominant TV-set which enabled an entire generation to devalue the left hemispheric mode of knowing. Television may well be the agent of equilibrating the human brain's two differing modes of perception.
Many dyslexics are talented artists, architects, musicians, composers, dancers, healers, animal whisperer, and surgeons.
The ethical development happens in the frontal lobes within late puberty and continues during adulthood.
The Italian polymath (painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, writer) Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is likely the only human being in recorded history who could have won a Nobel Prize in both
Shlain, inspired by his namesake, found that the ambi-brained balanced genius da Vinci was an illegitimate child, a vegetarian, a bilingual, a synaesthetic, a homosexual, and a composer of music. He was lefthanded, ambidextrous, mirror writing, and hook writing. He was neither bald in young age nor color-blind or dyslexic.

Masculine creeds evolved with the written word in an alphabet. The first two Commandments of the Ten Commandments in the Old Testament [first book issued 900 BC] reject the influence of the Goddess (right brain, Yin) and ban any form of representative art. Women were forbidden to be priestesses in the 3rd millennium when the New Testament was transcribed.
Since the introduction of photography and TV [emitting/inducing alpha and theta brain waves] we witness the rise of the feminine and the decline of the male (left brain, Yang) dominance after 5,000 years of patriarchy.
70,000 years ago when people migrated out of Africa women in the Northern hemisphere wanted iron to cover the enormous loss of iron during menstruation, birth, pregnancy and breast feeding. They loose 40 pints of blood over a lifetime during mensis. The fetus sucks out one 1/8 of iron from a woman. Out of 4000 species of mammals less than 100 experience menses, 31 of which are primates including the humans. [min. 18:30] It is considered "normal" that women have 15% less hemoglobin and red cells than men.
Men started to hunt animals for women. Humans spent 99% of their experience as hunters/gatherers. (Tribes consisted of 150-225 persons (cp. Dunbar's number); hunting parties consisted of 9-12 men in their prime.)
The unparalleled female orgasm secured conception. The G-spot serves as the antedote to birth pain.
Youth, health and beauty [subcutaneous fat, pheromenes] most attracts men to women.

A USC study has found the first proof of structural brain abnormalities in people who habitually lie, cheat and manipulate others. While previous research has shown that there is heightened activity in the prefrontal cortex – the area of the brain that enables most people to feel remorse or learn moral behavior – when normal people lie, this is the first study to provide evidence of structural differences in that area among pathological liars.
The USC study of pathological liars showed first evidence of structural differences
in the area of the brain that enables most people to feel remorse.
Aside from having histories of conning others or using aliases, the habitual liars also ad-
mitted to malingering, or telling falsehoods to obtain sickness benefits. After they were categorized, the researchers used Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to explore struc-
tural brain differences between the groups. "Liars had significantly more 'white matter' and slightly less 'gray matter' than those they were measured against." "Pathological liars' can’t always tell truth from falsehood and contradict themselves in an interview. They are manipulative and they admit they prey on people. They are very brazen in terms of their manner, but very cool when talking about this."
