my corpus callosum

speaking of brains, i have to qualify the exact nature of my genius. why? because i qualify everything. that is part of my genius. i am not particularly left-brained, but i'm not mathmatically inept either, as i have touched on before in this blog; neither am i particularly right-brained, all emotional and intuitive. what is pronounced in my brain, i think, is my corpus callosum. i think that it's colossal.

the corpus callosum is the anatomical structure that connects the left and right hemispheres of the brain. the left side of the brain is widely understood to deal with logic, math, music and language. the right side of the brain is the more emotional side. studies have shown that the corpora callosa of women and gay men are in general larger than those of straight men. which would explain the increased ability of women and gay men to talk about their feelings over the ability of straight men to do so; there is more traffic between the two hemispheres.

i think that there is even more traffic in mine than in most women's or straight men's. that would explain my early interest in novels. and why i want to write one. one that particularly focusses on discussing emotions in minute detail, too. but what came first, you may, or, more likely, may not, ask, the chicken or the egg? now i could go on and on about this for pages, but i have discovered that i tend not to read other people's blog entries that are too long.

That's because of your insatiable corpus whozits.

So, wait, like, novels are very corpus callosum-oriented? I think you better post something lentgthy going into this.

I am totally mixed-dominance. Mixed dominance rules! I can tap my creativity to imagine something cool, and then access the other side of my head to figure out how to do it.

But maybe it is also part of what makes me such a weirdo.
