Left and Right, Two Totally Different Things.

This has been on my mind for a while, and I felt like sharing.

I have come to the conclusion that left and right are totally different, and each of them has their own set of attributes in my opinion. Let me explain.

Right: daytime, movement, action, masculine, power, piercing.

Left: nighttime, stillness, thought, feminine, softness, openess.

Many things in my life pertain to these thoughts that I have.

I feel like the right side of my body is the masculine side, and it happens that most of the scars and ruggedness of my body are on the right side.

On the flip side, the left side of my body is the feminine side with prettier features overall.

I find all this very interesting, and I wanted to hear your thoughts on this.

Things are never quite so simple.
This left and right thing…or indeed,
The attributes of each half of the brain
The duality within
We wrap religion around them
And aspire to effect reconciliation or reunion
Left and right…both mysterious in their own way
Why not have a look at studies concerning
Split brain patients…that might offer a clue

"And yet…the brain too, in the most physical sense,
Has this duality…left and right…male and female
Each half reflecting…a metaphysical counterpart"

Hey Sol, it's interesting you bring this up. I am reading a really good book called "A Whole New Mind" - which so far has been all about the understanding of our Left and Right sides of our brain. I'm no expert, and I haven't gotten very far into the book, but it stresses this point that we are entering an age where the Right brain will rule. Or that a Whole Mind is Androgynous (Mars + Venus)

When you say your left side, apparently you are refering to the right side of your brain - same with right hand to left side of brain.

The first chapter of the book starts out with the author being a volunteer to an MRI brain study. The study was in Cambridge I think. It was a slide-show of pictures, "angry face" "tropical island" "man with gun" "bunny" - The MRI would scan his brain and they proved that the Right side of the brain controlled Empathy - while the Left controlled the Analytical.

I broke it down in black and white, because once again I am no expert. There's some cents.

Of course, we must also realize, depending on how it is viewed, left can be right, and right can be left.

You know what I mean?
I think you do.

In order to reach any type of understanding
You will have to realize that within you…
There are two distinct entities…
Each with their own consciousness…
And attributes
One is viewed as mysterious, and the other
And of course the other is you
It all seems rather obvious…to anyone
With half a brain
The real question is…how can we unite?
Or indeed should we unite…these two halves
There may be a very good reason as to why
We are the way we are
It would be interesting to find a way of communication
That is simple and direct
Without having to resort to the eternal vagaries
Of some sort of Jungian dialogue

Left and Right go by many many names. Yin and Yang comes to mind.

Two halves of the whole. Very cool.

Yin and Yang…positive and negative
Male and female…the eternal dance
All expressed in our everyday lives
As we navigate the external world…
The male seeks the eternal female
And she of course…sits and waits
This inner drama is being played out
All around you
And not only in the realm of human relationships
But in the metaphysical and physical reality
Once seen…it is seen in everything.

You're awesome.

Thank you for that beautiful post. I appreciate it greatly.

I thank you in return…the truth is,
We are both awesome in our own way
And not only that…
You have given me a gift of kind words
And encouragement
This duality that you have touched upon
Is responsible for all of the problems
In the sphere of human endeavor
Or rather…it is our unawareness
Of this duality and what it implies
That causes us to...
Project and accept the way things are
I could have said more…like…

Left and right…East and West…
This is how we divide the world
This is the inner drama unfolding
On a grand stage

However perhaps I said enough
Sometimes too much is…well…
Too much

Regards Midicon

To left handed people it's the other way around.
