Hey everyone. Explinfin here.
I just wanted to do a little introduction.. I am a blogger and I run an alternative news & documentary website as well. Both links can be found in my
I write about all sorts of topics, probably topics that people who lurk around this place would enjoy, so feel free to check them out. It also really
helps a guy out if you "thumbs up" them on stumble upon, facebook, digg, delicious, myspace, redit, etc.
I guess to make this post a little more interesting I will leave you with a sample from my blog. Here is an article I wrote a while ago.
Why You Should Learn To Write With Both Hands
I have secretly been practicing writing with my left hand. I am going to learn to write with both hands equally as well, and here’s why I think
it’s a good idea:
Aside from the obvious reason being that if I injure my right hand and am unable to write with it sometime in the future I will already know how to
write with my left hand and won’t have to struggle trying to learn at that point. Let’s hope that never happens, but most people think that is
the only good reason to learn to write with both hands. Well it is not the only good reason or even the best reason to learn to be more
“By teaching both sides of the brain, society could look forward to a wonderful new world of two-handed, two-brained citizens, with untold
benefits for health, intelligence, handicrafts, sport, schoolwork, industry, and the military…If required, one hand shall be writing an original
letter, and the other shall be playing the piano…with no diminution in the power of concentration.”
It’s been shown that people who are more ambidextrous, or mixed handed, have thicker corpus callosum development in the brain. The corpus callosum
is the tissue that connects the two halves of the brain (the left and right hemispheres). People who are mixed handed have also been shown to be
better able to ‘read people’ and recall details better than left or right handed people.
Many of you have probably heard that the left brain controlls the right hand and the right brain controls the left hand. What many folks don’t know
is that the left side of the brain is responsible for logical, linear, rational, analytical, and objective thinking. The right brain is responsible
for intuitive, artistic, creative, holistic, and subjective thinking and looks at ‘wholes’ instead of parts. So, most of us right handed people
are likely going to be more left brained thinkers. The benefit of learning to write with both hands is to work both sides of the brain and to be a
more “whole brained” thinker. I suspect that learning to write with my left hand may help improve right brain functions.
Learning to write with both hands will help develop a thicker corpus callosum and may increase abilities in artistic, creative, and intuitive areas. I
learned a lot about the functions of left/right brains when I did an intense 2 years of Remote Viewing training. I think that learning to write with
the left hand will increase ability to do Remote Viewing as well, but this is just speculation at this point.
To learn to write with my left hand I am going to write out the alphabet and the numbers on a paper every day. Today will be the first day, and I have
recorded a quick little clip of the first attempt on youtube, so have a look at that. I will do another video in a month or so to show the
