In the literature, a brain in this context is defined as a complex adaptive neural network, with a large number of neurons and interconnections between the neurons, plus support or glial cells. Not only that, the brain has its own memory and can adapt from within, without having to communicate with the head brain. So a ‘brain’ in this context is far more complex than just a group of nerve cells that you find for example in your eye or ear.
Are we saying they stand alone? No – of course not. The body is a complex, integrated systemic whole, and the level of autonomy of these specified brains is much greater than we thought it was. Ensuring the three (or indeed five) brains are integrated and in alignment is the ideal situation to ensure a deep an authentic, healthy life style for yourself personally and for your relationships, work and business. What mBraining (and now mBraining2.0) is showing, is that from a congruent and aligned state, higher levels of wisdom emerge, giving an impact which is greater than the sum of the individual brains on their own.
