BRAIN AND MIND
The penetration of thought by will makes for memory,
Which is an atomic phenomenon reflecting
A compromise between brain and mind,
The electron particles of the new brain
And the neutron wavicles of the conscious mind.
Thoughts reside in the latter,
But their realization or recollection
Depends upon the degree to which
The former is exercised.
A strong will should induce a strong memory,
A weak will ... a weak memory.
In distinguishing between brain and mind,
One has a particle/wavicle dichotomy,
The neutron particles of the midbrain
Contrasting, through read literature, with
The neutron wavicles, or thoughts, of
The conscious mind; the electron particles
Of the new brain contrasting, as will, with
The electron wavicles, or awareness, of
The superconscious; not to mention
The proton particles of the old brain
Contrasting, as emotion, with
The proton wavicles, or dreams, of
The subconscious mind.
Just as the Church stems from the Kingdom,
So, in a manner of speaking, does the conscious mind
Stem from the old brain.
By contrast with the conscious mind,
The new brain signifies a 'fall' (forwards)
From church to state or, at any rate, from
The Protestant Church to the Republican State,
Neutron wavicles to neutron and/or electron particles.
But out of the particle Republic
Should arise the wavicle Centre,
As the new brain leads to the superconscious,
And thus a return to mind - only this time
To mind of the spirit rather than
To mind of either the soul or the intellect.
