Brain Hemisphere Attributes
page 1

In looking at the brain of humans and those attributes designated as being assigned to the left or right hemispheres, the left and right sides are generally described in terms of a person's perspective looking outwards. In other words, the left and right hemispheres are designated according to one's own orientation from within themselves looking outwards. While this is the same perspective by which the sides of an automobile are designated, very many people have been confronted by some consternation regarding which is the right and which is the left side of a vehicle because they use themselves and not the object in question as the means by which an orientation is established.

Perspective of the left and right sides of the brain Perspective of a vehicle from inside

Let's add a couple more references dealing with the perspective of the right and left sides of vessels irrespective of a person's orientation, and the usage of different terms which can cause confusion because they are specific to an occupation which as been applied to yet another type of vehicle because both are sometimes referred to as "crafts":

The perspective of right and left on a ship
Various postions of a ship Right and left sides of a plane
Different perspectives on place, position and direction

Yin and Yang comparisons

Similarly, when we are confronted with the "yin-yang" expression, and even though yin occurs first, it is assigned the number 2 and the word positive. Whereas in sequence it occurs first and would otherwise be designated with the value of "1", this is not the case. However, it should be noted that in citing the value of 1 and 2, the more frequent "Odd numbers" and "Even numbers" labels are used. But for the purposes at hand as an analogy, the first odd and even numbers can assist in making a useful distinction. In addition, the yin... or female-designated character is assigned to the left side of the head, yet it is considered to contain the creative aspect and the yang is considered to be the right side of the head as well as being designated with the serious or logical aspect. In other words, the ideas of association are right hemisphere (emotional) considerations and not left hemisphere (logical or serious) considerations. Colloquially speaking, the attributes do not jive with the reality of factuality. And while not apparent at this moment, the following information about brain lateralization and attribute designations... whether you believe in the constituent divisions or not since you feel there is enough over-lap to represent a thorough mixing, I will nonetheless portray attributive quantities as being assigned to one or the other hemisphere of the brain because of a generalized public acceptance of specialization... that is, a dominance makes an appearance even though some mixing or overlapping may occur. And because we speak in terms of "dominance", we should thus recognize we are also making a non-labeled reference to a position of submissiveness that might be more easily understood by some if such dichotomies as master/slave, boss/employee, big brother/younger sibling, etc... are used. Hence, what we may be paying witness to is the usage of a social ordering system that harkens back to a long-ago primate past which may extend further back in time to all occasions in which a predator/prey (and perhaps symbiosis) has taken place... even in physics and chemistry.

First of all, let "us" (me, myself, I) provide a generalized image of the brain's two hemispheres along with their assigned attributes, though this has already been provided on the Prologue page 2. While cultural exaggerations do occur, as mentioned in this article: Left brain vs. right brain: Fact and fiction, it also points out occurrences of activities that suggest dominant characteristics that at present have no other way of being interpreted except to say brain hemisphere specialization... despite the usage of the word "constellation" of brain activity by some authors. According to the article we get the following... rather spartan image of people, and is a description that would not tell an alien race much about humanity if it were the only record found in the ruins of some future human civilization after humanity vanishes from the planet, whether due to extinction or it finally wised up enough to "get out of Dodge" and leave it to the ancestral ghosts because the solar system is deteriorating. No doubt the description suits the mindset of someone with an over-riding left brain de-colonization of the world that portrays a two-patterned black and white dichotomy which, when analyzed, is actually a characteristic of the right brain... as you will see later on in the present discussion:

Although people do not fall neatly into the categories of left-brained or right-brained, there are some differences in what the left and right hemispheres do.

Functions and characteristics of each hemisphere


The left brain is more active in speech production than the right. In most people, the two main language areas, known as Broca's area and Wernicke's area, are found in the left hemisphere. Visually based languages such as Sign language, are also the domain of the left brain. People who are deaf show speech-like brain activity when watching sign language.


A right-handed person uses their left brain for mental tasks. (Handedness is inbuilt, and it can even be detected while the baby is in the womb. Some babies prefer to suck their left or right thumb from as early as 15 weeks.)

The left side of the brain is more involved with attention to the internal world.

This is the domain of the right brain, in both humans and also in non-human primates. Emotions are expressed and recognized in others by the right brain.


A left-handed person uses their right brain for manual tasks. (Handedness is inbuilt, and it can even be detected while the baby is in the womb. Some babies prefer to suck their left or right thumb from as early as 15 weeks.)


The right side is more interested in attending to the external world.

What most illustrations of the brain do not describe is that the right hemisphere 'lobe' is said to jut slightly in front of the left hemisphere (suggesting that it may have an earlier sequence of development), and that in infants, it is the right hemisphere which there is a dominance in blood flow (which may permit it to be more initially responsive to whatever environmental conditions prevail).

The right brain hemisphere is dominant in human infants.

The development of functional brain asymmetry during childhood is confirmed by changes in cerebral blood flow measured at rest using dynamic single photon emission computed tomography. Between 1 and 3 years of age, the blood flow shows a right hemispheric predominance, mainly due to the activity in the posterior associative area. Asymmetry shifts to the left after 3 years. The subsequent time course of changes appear to follow the emergence of functions localized initially on the right, but later on the left hemisphere (i.e. visuo-spatial and later language abilities). These findings support the hypothesis that, in man, the right hemisphere develops its functions earlier than the left.

Let are a lot of different ways of illustrating suggested attributes of the different brain hemispheres even if the connecting Corpus Callosum escapes being mentioned in most references. Some illustrations are simply the two lists in a box type of format, while others venture to supply more visual models. Here are four examples:

A box of hemisphere attributes Brain hemisphere attributes image two
Brain hemisphere attributes image one
Brain hemisphere attributes image three

While there are other ways of illustrating features of the brain, I will use the Triune brain model advanced by Paul D. MacLean, albeit using a numerical indexing system that we can apply to a makeshift graph to highlight a developmental progression from zero (and before?) to three (and an eventual beyond in the future?). While starts, stops, overlappings, regressions, "punctuations" (question mark, period, exclamation) are not intended, their presence can be inferred with not too much imaginative effort.

Representative idea of ennumeration applied to particular brain structures

The above graph defines "zero" as reflecting not only pre-brain development from initial cellular processes through germ layer differentiation; though one might want to suggest that transitions into a "1" value have fractional properties, just as one might want to interpret intermediary stages of development with a similar fractionation. Thus, overlapping if not regression as well as stops, starts and transitory processes of development would thus be entitled to a Dewey decimalization... so to speak. While the graph is not meant to be taken literally, its generalization can be taken seriously as a means of establishing a formative understanding that word labels can be substituted with numbers, are used as a supplement in conjunction there-with in order to assist with identifying one or more characteristics that need not be limited to the singular subject at hand. In other words, while many people are aware of different attributes assigned to the different hemispheres, they may not be familiar with the idea that the attributes can be further differentiated by using a numerical referencing system.

However, when we apply the notion of relativity to the present discussion of the brain, the usage of a numerical indexing system can be problematic if those using enumeration are not aware of how others are using a numerically-based referencing system for the same information. For example, the following illustration describes the developing brain in a formative structure attached with six different ways of describing the same thing, though individual researchers may say that their perception is best by semantically nit-picking the advantages or disadvantages for a given referencing system because their system is immersed in their ego. It is the same thing we find in religion, politics, business... etc...

Relative perspectives using different enumeration methods

Like the six (less or more) blind men and the elephant tale, we have the same thing going on over and over and over again from one generation to the next, with no real advancement in the progress of humanity beyond the chance accident of a serendipitous moment. Take a look at the following tale to witness the state of the female psyche. In the present metaphor, the female psyche is the elephant and the present multi-various efforts (astrology, gemstones, witchcraft, ceremonialism, feminism, boy/girl politics, etc...), are the blind men groping about the same thing but ultimately stumbling over each other's feet and not stepping back to see the larger contextual picture of the elephant and its place in the current environment— as well as what it must do to mature past its present image and functionality... and in effect, helps women (and men) to cast off their out-dated Archetypal Wardrobe.

Blind Men and the Elephant – A Poem by John Godfrey Saxe (1816-1887)

It was six men of Indostan,
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.

The First, approach'd the Elephant,
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
"God bless me! but the Elephant
Is very like a wall!"

The Second , feeling of the tusk,
Cried, -"Ho! what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me 'tis mighty clear,
This wonder of an Elephant
Is very like a spear!"

The Third approach'd the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
"I see," -quoth he- "the Elephant
Is very like a snake!"

The Fourth reached out an eager hand,
And felt about the knee:
"What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain," -quoth he,-
"'Tis clear enough the Elephant
Is very like a tree!"

The Fifth , who chanced to touch the ear,
Said- "E'en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can,
This marvel of an Elephant
Is very like a fan!"

The Sixth no sooner had begun
About the beast to grope,
Then, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
"I see," -quoth he,- "the Elephant
Is very like a rope!"

And so these men of Indostan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!


So, oft in theologic wars
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean;
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!

All About Philosophy
Poem by John Godfrey Saxe

The problem with all of the hemispheric brain-attribute illustrations that one encounters is that they have taken on an institutionalized form of representation in that the attributes are being portrayed with an unrecognized right hemisphere world-view, even though the word-labels being used suggest that the illustrator or examiner is providing logical (left hemisphere attribute) references. Words are often being used not to demonstrate a left-hemisphere characteristic but a right-hemisphere interpretation thereof. What is not clear in the present age to most people, is that the words being used in many so-called scientific explanations are over-ridden with unacknowledged standardizations of right-hemisphere efforts to be more "left hemispheric-like", as might an artist trying to appear sophisticated or intelligent or professional that can be metaphorically described as an articulate painter putting on a white smock, though it has dabs (smears and blotches) of different colored paint all over it (like many a house painter's white uniform)— and there are various artist's tools hanging out from the pockets. It is a stage prop and dress rehearsal that never actually becomes produced into an actual performance. It's costume jewelry and a lot of histrionics, but nothing beyond the drama of an elaborate show and tell for-the-producer performance. In other words, it is quite humorous even though the person wearing the smock and those nearby are accepting the person and their "costume" in a serious manner, (and the seriousness of their involvement have unrecognized as well as expected social costs that you and I and others pay for, particularly if the scripting is used by a presumed professional). Hence, the words being used in many cases are costumes pretending a sophistication that has been adopted by many who should know better and will know better after the distinction is pointed out to them. As of yet, far too many are not aware that all of them are attending a grand ball called hemisphere attribute recognition, but they are all dancing with the same crude clothing and affected summations of generality.

Floaters, Flashes but not necessarily Freeloaders

The cause(s) of seeing splashes, splotches and spills as creative expressions might in some cases be induced by eyeball floaters and flashes which may then be interpreted not to be freeloaders. Then again, the splashes, spotches, and spills given different labels may not be viewed in a well-intentioned creative sense of forming an opinion about that which is looked upon in a positive manner, but in a manner which provides an impetus for discussion using other topics involving, sociology, family, psychology, counseling, psychiatry, intervention, support, etc.... In other words, instead of viewing abstract ideas as expressions of exploring creative venues suggesting a sojourn into a landscape of consideration that is not or is rarely known, abstract ideas (with or without being coupled to non-typical... "abstract" activity), may be labeled in a non-creative negative sense that there is something wrong with the person... even if they have found others who interpret and express a similar type of behavior that boldly contrasts itself with conventions of a given era. While not always in error when attempting to explain someone's ideas and/or behavior that appears to be counter-productive if not problem-creating and otherwise described as an accident waiting for the right time, place and people. No doubt there were those in the past as well as the present and as well may be in the future whose vision tied to a "fragmented brain" may at first be interpreted to be a sign of something wrong because the presented imagery is in a early and crude stage of development.

Masculinized Female Psyche

However, by being encouraged through one's own efforts and or those of another(s), they may well develop a means to give meaning to the budding ideas which needed time to be permitted to continue in their metamorphosis. While spending time alone is helpful for some, others need to see how someone else with a similar train of thought tackled their own formula of expression in order that they can either accept or not such portrayals as the prime example. If they are truly stepping onto a new territory, they may have to invent their own representation... even though it may not be understood until decades or centuries later. While there may be one or more others who could understand, they are not aware of the illustration and none of them ever get a chance to influence one another. Hence, if the mountain will not come to Mohammed, Mohammed must learn how to make their way to the mountain... if only to find out the mountain is but the shadow of something much larger that the traveler must deduce for themselves. Nonetheless, in the exploration of unraveling the female psyche from its antiquated wardrobe and roles which are very often defined in-line with, because of, or in various transitional stages of development towards some male influence, let us metaphorically describe the present state of the female psyche as a masculinized female psyche that is draped with various colorations like an infant with egg on their face which is being interpreted with labels that describe the mess in creative terms to accept things as they are because they are somehow being viewed as normal and natural, instead of that which is actually the case... a developmental niche' assigned to them by men who not only want to keep them pregnant and barefoot... so to speak, but in a pre-stone age frame of mind where personal reflections in a pool of water have been defined by men in illusory terms as but another means of keeping them submissive and dependent on them and/or male dominated institutions as well as ideological preferences which create different types of personality fragmentations... but good and the not so beneficial.

Three (metaphorical) images of the female psyche

Fragmented Brain image 1 Fragmented Brain image 2 Fragmented Brain image 3

While it is true that language is generally considered to be a province of the left hemisphere, how this idea is being portrayed is the result of a creative or right hemisphere approach to using language... like a chimpanzee attempting to get an idea across by adopting an artificial sign language and expecting it to fill the many gaps not only of speaker, but translator and translation device. In other words, we can define a greater left hemisphere distinction of all the attributes by subjecting them to a numerical referencing code of recognized patterns. The code is very simple. It uses the values of 1, 2, and 3. With the value "1" assigned to the basic reptilian and limbic portions of the human brain, which are described as first and second divisions of developmental growth within the 3-brain division model as described by Paul MacLean. However, unlike MacLean's 3-part evolutionary brain model which next describes the Neo-Cortex as the third division, I assign the value "2" to the right hemisphere and the value "3" to the left hemisphere. Paul MacLean's model paints a pretty picture of the brain, but it is just that... a right hemisphere approximation of the brain though it is attempting to portray left hemisphere originating details of structure. While the numerical values for the right and left hemispheres will become more noticeable as we delve deeper into an analysis of the attributes, the singular "1" value of the Reptilian and Limbic systems is an inferred attachment bases on the singularity of objective activities concerned with such things as self-survival, self-procreation, self-nurturance.

I will begin a further exploration of the female psyche stripped of both its Archetypal Wardrobe and Nudity, by using the aforementioned enumerated indexing method on the next page, since the contents of the present page were compiled in such a way that took more space then previously considered. In other words, the initial 3 seeds has sprouted some roots and upward bound foliage. In other words, I will need another page or so to complete this short essay.
