Since you are a writer, I believe that you, like me, like learning new things.
The other day I was researching how many times the word ‘brain’ appears in the Bible.
I was surprised that it does not appear at all !
This is because, during Biblical times, people believed that thoughts, feelings and emotions originated in the heart, which is mentioned 826 times.
However, the word ‘mind’ is mentioned 96 times, and we are told in Matthew 22:37, to love God with our ‘heart, soul, and mind’.
So then, I thought I would do a casual study on where the mind is located.
This was no simple study ! Instead, this question has interested numerous philosophers and scientists, including Plato, Descartes, and Freud, for thousands of years.
The mind, according to some research, is located partly, but not entirely, in the brain.
I thought I should spend some more time researching this, but I changed my mind. The amount of information was ‘mind-boggling’.
Local strawberries are in season now, so I thought I would make a strawberry shortcake instead.
Pictured is Rosa Rugosa, also called ‘Beach Rose’, in the garden.
These plants are amazingly resilient, and have a beautiful fragrance.
