Quotes {34} ~ Consciousness Created The Brain As A Means To Perceive Itself

“Although our brain doesn’t create consciousness – it’s far more likely that consciousness created the brain as a means to perceive itself – there are regions of the brain that become active when we enter certain states of awareness. For example, when we’re angry, there’s a region in the brain that lights up, while another region only becomes active when we’re joyful, in love, or in a meditative bliss. This is because the human brain is divided into four “sub-brains” that developed at different evolutionary stages. Each governs a different aspect of human nature.”~ Alberto Villoldo, Shaman
