I like the poetry of this phrase, refering to the 7 Hermetic Principles: "Keep your mind ever on the Star, but let your eyes watch over your footsteps, lest you fall into the mire by reason of your upward gaze".
Looking at your profile photo for a few seconds, Contra-quistador, I suddenly had the strong, but fleeting impression of seeing four falcons on an electric line. Some call it imagination, but then if it is imagination, where does this imagination, or image originate from ?
Personnally, I am convinced human beings often "tap in" unconsciously, in a universal source, and receive information, images, ideas from this "Universal Mind", like being on a different frequency for a split second.
Here are a couple of interesting extracts I found on the two brain spheres :
"It happens that the human brain comes in two well-defined halves. No-one seems to know why, though it has been argued that switching from symmetrical to asymmetrical functioning gave the human brain a sudden increase in power by cutting out duplication. But since consciousness is unitary, the dual structure of the brain raises some interesting problems. In Moby Dick , Herman Melville pointed out that since the eyes of whales are widely separated, they must either, unimaginably, perceive two entirely separate visual fields at once, or in effect, look at only one side at a time. If problems like that arise from having two separate eyes, what can we expect from two different centres of consciousness? Descartes chose the pineal gland as the centre of interaction between mind and body partly because it was one of the few brain structures which wasn't duplicated. "
"Damage to certain areas of the brain may leave a patient blind in one eye, or in one area of their visual field. Although they have normal vision elsewhere, such patients are unable to report what is going on in the 'blind spot' and say that they see nothing there. However, experiments have shown that when asked to guess the location of an object or a light in the blind patch, some of them perform well. Although they continue to say they cannot see the object in question, they consistently point in right direction. This phenomenon is known as 'blindsight'."http://www.consciousentities.com/experiments.htm
