I find the fact that the part of the brain responsible for sensory input processing grows larger from meditation very interesting. Just need some time
to reflect on this and its implications.

This is intresting. Of course it could be related that it grows because medidation stimulates certain parts of the brain and therefore they become
more stronger so to speak.

This is fascinating, thank you for posting this.
On an energy level I know there is increased activity in the 6th (third eye) chakra when people meditate. Energy precedes matter, so I wonder if this
thickened part is the part of the brain which corresponds to the 6th chakra.
Can anyone tell me, I don't see any pictures in the link.
The socalled Third Eye is more asociated with a specific don't know the english word for it klier, or organ that sits there.
Pineal gland. Or pituitary? I guess theres a male and female counter-part.
Yes I believe there is quite a link with meditation and the physical body, but for me I define physical completely different. Some people think of
physical like flesh.. matter... REAL.. I see it as molecules, which i see as atoms.. and then particles and sub-atomic particles, simple energy
patterns, intelligently formed, right down to wavelengths / a binary perception. I don't debate science completely, in fact I like it quite a bit,
and use it in my explanations, but what i'm saying is... i see these glands and organs associated with "chakras" or energy centers (if matter is
energy, then we are bodies of energy).. I see such things as patterns of energy, not limited to any confined form, reaching out like a radio waves on
all sorts of subliminal levels. A freind of mine was saying something like the pineal gland has rods and cones like an eye? Very interesting indeed.
What i'm also trying to say though is i'm not yet convinced the brain is where thought originates from. I think of it more as a reciever, and by no
means do I look at the human body as a simple vehicle for thinking. I see it as beautiful expression of thought, a perfect design, it just depends on
how you use it.
The physical body and meditation are linked, but again, I don't really feel like my body is a seperate entity, it just appears that way in this
perspective. A school of fish moves in flawless syncronicity, I think they are picking up on something there.
Meditation, does it expand the brain? Well I think we are feeding the energy mass called the brain a big load of energy patterns that it needs to
sort, i could see it responding in such a way. From my experiences, I lose more of this sense of seperation by the day.
I'll just stop here for now, I could go on.. glands? YES! I do think they have their purpose, they are intelligently formed energy configurations.
My third eye is expressed physically as a pineal/pituitary gland!
