For adults, the brain is difficult to understand, but for kids, it’s a no-brainer.
That’s because the children are still young enough to recall the time when, still in their mother’s womb, they had no brain.
If you’re old or if you’ve forgotten for other reasons, read on and you will understand.
In the meantime, don’t let the misconception that having a brain is a prerequisite for intelligence, hold you back from staying forever young.
Friend and foe
Word-masters — those are word-users who know that in the beginning is the word — who are telling you that without a brain you’re good for nothing, are not your friends. They’ve been telling lies for thousands of years with no end in sight.
They are your enemies.
Enemies are what you make.
Friends are also what you make. In principle, the same.
And if you can’t tell the difference between the two, you’re not doing yourself any favors.
The story of brains
Possessing a brain isn’t a prerequisite for intelligence.
To understand what that means, it’s enough to pay the bulk of your attention to the illustration below.
The illustration depicts that on Earth exists a time before brains (the first 4.15 billion years) and a time after brains (the most recent 500,000 years).
What that’s telling you is that the fire, earth, air, and water, which together created the planet we’re passengers on, don’t have brains. Clearly, for those four, the creation of Earth was a no-brainer.
What the graph doesn’t tell you is that they arrived on Earth from outer space, which includes the equally brainless sun, stars, stardust, atoms, particles, energy, and electricity, to name a few.
The water, air, earth, and fire knew all there is to know about space travel 4.65 billion years before we, now fully brain-equipped, are still fighting a war that can be won only by losing it.
That begs the question of what our brains are for, doesn’t it?
The illustration is also telling us that the four — water, air, earth, and fire — then invented the cells, plants, animals, eyes, brains, words, and word-users.
It’s only since we have words that we can say that’s hard to believe. But who would want to win an argument with the story of brains?
Earth after brains
After the invention of brains on Earth, other inventions followed suit, namely those of moss, land animals, hearts, flowering plants, tools, arts (dance, music, paintings, sculpture), bread, and agriculture.
Finally, 500,000 years after the brains, the brainless four also invented the words and the wordy.
As you’d expect, you began brainless too.
You before brain
A brainless cell that split itself in two made you from scratch.
Does this mean that making you, brain included, was a no-brainer?
Yup, for a brainless cell, it was.
That’s because your brain is between your ears, but what you know isn’t.
What you know is in every cell of your body.
You after brain
What you knew before you had a brain isn’t lost.
On the contrary, it’s still there.
All you’ve got to do is ask your brain to re-member.
If you don’t, your brain will not work for you as you’d expect.
In this way, your brain is identical to everything else you have a word for.
After Words, you get sent to school to learn…after we’ve just made ourselves from scratch.
Near as I can tell, making yourself from scratch, brain included, takes greater intelligence than anything taught at school.
The times they are a-changing
The brain secret school doesn’t want you to see is made visible by those of us who don’t enjoy being lied to anymore.
It’s only a question of time before you will be released.
