Self-Portrait On A Happy And Creative Occasion

The brain above is anatomically correct, though perhaps not philosophically or psychologically or theologically. According to the scientists of the brain (I tend to regard philosophy, psychology and theology as three synonyms for the same mysticism), a person who is "left-brained" is more logical, analytical, and objective, while a person who is "right-brained" is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful, and subjective. They have absolutely no evidence to substantiate this superstition, but quacks have to quack just as bees have to buzz and Pavlov's dog can't stop barking. The truth probably is that the brain works best when it is working at its optimum, which is to say when all parts are active.
