Ben, great reference:"Mental Imagery"

We have learned more about the
…. human brain during my lifetime
than what was known since 1000 BC

The unconsciousness mind,
… The INFINITY ...

We are so much more
… than we can imagine,
more than the physical being
… that stares into my eyes
From within my mirror.

We are travelers in this world
… from the sunsets to the cemetery
From birth ‘til death

We travel between the eternities.

Only the Good

PS: The unconscious mind, it turns out, is most of the mind—not a dark, vestigial place but a creative and enchanted one, where most of the brain’s work gets done. This is the realm of emotions, intuitions, biases, longings, genetic predispositions, personality traits, and social norms:
the realm where character is formed and where our most important life decisions are made

Most of what's been learned is the incredible complexity of the brain. It reminds me of a quote from Lyall Watson: "If the brain were so simple that we could understand it, we'd be so simple that we couldn't."
