Another kick: the two major halves of the brain - left and right cerebral hemispheres - are separated by what is called, though hardly even known about by most, or understood at all, the corpus callosum which serves a similar function.
So... in light of the above.... what the heck is going on in humanity at this time and in our space? America is split right down the middle, and so are most "civilized" countries... whereas the so-called "less-civilized" (not yet Americanized, Europeanized, Asianized, Australianized, etc.) are not split at all!
But THAT is NOT a good thing for Evolution, apparently, because Evolution - at least over the last 5000 years - has forced all people everywhere to come together (for mutual benefit in a variety of ways) and eventually to put up fences, and build walls, and tend to them fairly closely - at all cost, really - so that they don't fall down, or become penetrated. All of this, so far, simply leads up to The Greater Issue... but it can not be "scaled" ("penetrated") without..... NAMING IT!
That's CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABCnews, CBSnews and NBCnews in a nuthouse. All day long and into the night, every single day, only the TOPICS change from day to day.... meaning their heads get chopped off sometime early each morning and they spend all the rest of that day, at least, running around like headless chickens. That is all bad enough - having an entire "fourth estate" acting like chickens with their heads cut off, without a clue about what's really going on - but the OBJECTS of their confusion, the two presidential candidates, are as clueless as the media! It's a case of flocks of headless chickens trying to make sense of all the other headless chickens running into them every 15 seconds.
Absolutely NOBODY - got that? NOBODY - has a clue about any of this. I don't, you don't, he don't, she don't, they don't, and that is the current state of the "human race" (here, put in quotes because these naked apes with big brains are really not quite HUMAN as of yet, they just APPEAR to be.)
Bottom Line: individually, one has to have a real sense of responsibility for all of this. One can no longer look down their noses at the world, and continue to think they are somehow ABOVE it all - i.e.,
In America, the Depressing Lefties believe they are SPECIAL, and call the Excitable Righties DEPLORABLE - but it's a lie, top to bottom, and everyone knows it. Everyone is both Special and Deplorable, and circumstances reveal what is currently at the surface. And like oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds and streams, the surface is always changing. What is required is a vastly different MINDSET in all and everyone.
It is painful, down to the marrow in the bone, and the only way to ameliorate that pain is to eliminate the electrical charges building up on the surface....and that means activating the brain-mouth/hand circuit, and EXPRESSING noise. From shrieks, to yells, to screams, to cries, to whines, to whimpers, to twitter tweets, to facebook messages, to blogposts, to wherever someone is there to receive it... but even the receiver is not all that important.... but the EXPRESSION always is.
What is being continually demanded - hour by hour, every day of our lives, - is neural activity... which is the production of electricity, low wattage of course (about that of a 10-watt lightbulb), but it is enough to be felt in the quantum sphere that is Life Itself. This global transfer of energy among humans, is LIFE THINKING, which of course is not the same "thing" as what we call thinking, but on a much higher level, at a much higher frequency, that only the "sensitives" can perceive. Some of the animals that can perceive this are dogs, cats, rodents, bats, and whales (incl. dolphins, porpoises, seals, sea lions)...such that they can form complex packs, clowders, mischiefs, colonies and schools, though they can't MAKE SENSE of it.
Life is telling a tale - a Global Tale - about the direction mankind (and most likely all other species) is proceeding, and since the individual nodes on the neural network are not interconnected to all the others (not yet, anyway), no individual has an inside track, or "inside knowledge", about this Direction. Just as some like to suggest, "God has a plan, but we can't know that plan", just substitute LIFE for God, and the message is the same.
We really don't have to know that plan, but we do have to FEEL IT FIRST. Feeling that there is something going on here, and that the external nonsense exhibited by the headless chickens running around without a clue, writing and reporting on all the HEADLINES, is not a BAD THING. The GOOD THING, that can't be readily perceived by the headless headline-writing and -reporting chickens - remember, they lack the capacity for real THINKING - is first to get your HEAD ON STRAIGHT. Right now, it's missing, and all the running around is simply YOU (apparently) "looking around" for it.
So, Step 1: get your head on straight.
Step 2: activate your higher functions including the capacity to THINK sans EMOTION - i.e., left brain for thinking, right brain for emotion.
Step 3: (remember the FENCES from above... time for a quick review.)
This same situation can explain (if you can do it) the current Americal Political Environment. America is split into two halves with a great wall, or FENCE, separating those residing on each side. Each side believes the OTHER side is deranged, idiotic, retarded, racist, sexist, homophobic, islamophobic, DEPLORABLE (each, in their own unique ways of course) and IRREDEEMABLE (this is a hard and fixed idea for most.)
The FENCE is there in reality, and nobody sees or feels it directly, only INDIRECTLY - that is, within, but they can't "touch it", because if they could TOUCH IT, they could NAME IT...
By keeping all human brains in a mental/emotional chaotic flux, our brains must produce copious quantities of biochemically-based, neuro-electrical energy circulating throughout the brain - i.e., more and more talk, hence the recent popularity of Facebook, Twitter and other sites, including the proliferation of cable news shows, to contain all of it. LIFE benefits, and humans are depleted, expended, just like batteries are depleted and expended, and then finally tossed into the trash.
Americans are at the extreme edges, and from that "distance" (it's a mental distance of course, thought-based, and "imaginary") what you think you "SEE and HEAR" is not what is actually THERE. Democratic viewpoints are not really that far away from Republican viewpoints, but human brains SAY there is an almost insurmountable world of difference.
Language is the great DIVIDE, and the great Divider. It is the WALL. It is the FENCE that divides the personal properties of each and every human. What the "more enlightened" in BOTH camps should be doing - and should have BEEN doing for the last several months, if not years or decades - is working toward a new kind of Cooperative Party. That's sort of what the Libertarians think they are doing, but they are not. Pick their issues and plans apart, and you get a left-wing social liberalism, and a right-wing fiscal conservatism. But that will never work. Look at G.Johnson. He doesn't have a chance in HELL.
