In discussing differences between male and female brains, there are those who prefer identifiable structural differences and not mere ideas generated by ideology, belief, personal feelings, and other assumptions... whether or not a person's memory is believed to have recorded numerous instances of examples which correspond to their views. With respect to structural differences, here is a very small sampling:

Brain differences between males and females


Male brains utilize nearly seven times more gray matter for activity while female brains utilize nearly ten times more white matter. What does this mean?

Gray matter areas of the brain are localized. They are information- and action-processing centers in specific splotches in a specific area of the brain. This can translate to a kind of tunnel vision when they are doing something. Once they are deeply engaged in a task or game, they may not demonstrate much sensitivity to other people or their surroundings.

White matter is the networking grid that connects the brain’s gray matter and other processing centers with one another. This profound brain-processing difference is probably one reason you may have noticed that girls tend to more quickly transition between tasks than boys do. The gray-white matter difference may explain why, in adulthood, females are great multi-taskers, while men excel in highly task-focused projects.


Male and female brains process the same neurochemicals but to different degrees and through gender-specific body-brain connections. Some dominant neurochemicals are serotonin, which, among other things, helps us sit still; testosterone, our sex and aggression chemical; estrogen, a female growth and reproductive chemical; and oxytocin, a bonding-relationship chemical.

In part, because of differences in processing these chemicals, males on average tend to be less inclined to sit still for as long as females and tend to be more physically impulsive and aggressive. Additionally, males process less of the bonding chemical oxytocin than females. Overall, a major take-away of chemistry differences is to realize that our boys at times need different strategies for stress release than our girls.

Structural Differences

A number of structural elements in the human brain differ between males and females. "Structural" refers to actual parts of the brain and the way they are built, including their size and/or mass.

Females often have a larger hippocampus, our human memory center. Females also often have a higher density of neural connections into the hippocampus. As a result, girls and women tend to input or absorb more sensorial and emotive information than males do. By "sensorial" we mean information to and from all five senses. If you note your observations over the next months of boys and girls and women and men, you will find that females tend to sense a lot more of what is going on around them throughout the day, and they retain that sensorial information more than men.

Additionally, before boys or girls are born, their brains developed with different hemispheric divisions of labor. The right and left hemispheres of the male and female brains are not set up exactly the same way. For instance, females tend to have verbal centers on both sides of the brain, while males tend to have verbal centers on only the left hemisphere. This is a significant difference. Girls tend to use more words when discussing or describing incidence, story, person, object, feeling, or place. Males not only have fewer verbal centers in general but also, often, have less connectivity between their word centers and their memories or feelings. When it comes to discussing feelings and emotions and senses together, girls tend to have an advantage, and they tend to have more interest in talking about these things.

Blood Flow and Brain Activity

While we are on the subject of emotional processing, another difference worth looking closely at is the activity difference between male and female brains. The female brain, in part thanks to far more natural blood flow throughout the brain at any given moment (more white matter processing), and because of a higher degree of blood flow in a concentration part of the brain called the cingulate gyrus, will often ruminate on and revisit emotional memories more than the male brain.

Males, in general, are designed a bit differently. Males tend, after reflecting more briefly on an emotive memory, to analyze it somewhat, then move onto the next task. During this process, they may also choose to change course and do something active and unrelated to feelings rather than analyze their feelings at all. Thus, observers may mistakenly believe that boys avoid feelings in comparison to girls or move to problem-solving too quickly.

There are other references to other studies... or perhaps one should say other beliefs, since one's philosophical perspective appears to be a dominant foray in the area being discussed, of which a few are listed:

Whereas the short comedic skit in the foregoing video is humorous, its contents must not be accepted without question, since the female brain also has it "boxes" such as the kitchen junk drawer, flower boxes, bread box, ice box (refrigerator), stove/oven box, sewing box and of course the large box many women carry around called a purse, which if you get hit in the head with may well signify that some women carry around the kitchen sink or pots and pans. And there is of course the "dead zones" of think-nothingness commonly referred to as a dumb blonde. In any case, whether established by fact or fiction, by old wives tales or male-generated urban legends, differences in the male and female brains are said to be recognizable... even if many of those differences revolve around their physical/emotional sexuality and not some specific brain and subsequent mental functionality that has nothing to do with their sexuality... except in those many cases where the difference has taken on a role of accommodating itself to a preoccupation with their sexuality.

It is unfortunate that most comments and elaborated discussions that we find among most hemispheric brain distinctions do not speak of the possibility that the female psyche may be more unique than most people recognize... from the perspective that there exists a potential far beyond that which can be adequately understood or used in conventional social settings, or the present environmental conditions of Earth. In other words, for some women... perhaps even the majority or all women, it remains in a dormant state awaiting those conditions which will best nurture it into a full development. Whereas in some cases the female psyche may well have become somewhat atrophied by inter-generational disallowance of female-branded thinking, in other cases some may have recognized its existence and attempted to explore it openly, only to be confronted by a social setting that interpreted such expressions of development in a negative or threatening manner. In some instances, instead of permitting its development, a given social setting with men may have contributed to a disallowance by way of distraction due to keeping the female isolated from information and preoccupied with the rearing of children... though motherhood nor housekeeping need not be a deterrent to a personal development of the female psyche beyond the expectations and constraints of a male psyche created social environment.

The female psyche must revisit the idea of hemispheric specialization in order to recognize a different perspective of themselves so as to enable women (and men) to pay witness to themselves from a vantage point of greater clarity by using a simple formula of enumeration instead of words which are being linked to an unrecognized right hemisphere music and art usage... and not a left hemisphere language usage, despite the presence of words. The application of word labels are presently being used as symbols for a right hemisphere expression of interpretation. It is like a stupid philosophy being expressed by someone using music to overwhelm the senses and distract the person from being able to recognize the underlying simplistic... if not puerile message. An alternative description is to say that if one removes the music from most songs, the underlying commentary is simplistic nonsense. They are short personal philosophies or observations, or made-up... tales which reek of ignorance and primivity. And even though the usage of numbers in the form of mathematics is frequently used as expressions of a right hemisphere ordering of the world, until the human brain develops some other form of symbolism, humanity is stuck with numbers and letters... or scribbles, hieroglyphics, pictographs, etc., some future generation may devise to suit them better.

In short, we too frequently overlook left hemisphere attributes being hijacked by right hemisphere activities... and vice versa. While some have noted that the corpus callosum effects a type of bridge for the two hemispheres to communicate, the usage of the word "bridge" is a type of political correctness which serves to conceal the usage of tunnels, secret messages, secret handshakes, gestures, and messages conveyed "over the air" by (figuratively speaking) using kites, balloons, pigeons, arial rockets, smoke signals, drum beats, etc., to communicate as well. Many of the behavioral activities humans engage in can be found to have a counter-part in underlying biological activity... which may be where the human mind gets the impetus for many of their ideas in the first place, though copying the behavior and attributes of other animated and inanimate occurrences serves this purpose as well. (For example, attempts to create robots have their blueprints generated from observing insects, and the behavior of different animals has been used at different times to generate ideas such as using the flight of birds to claim a good or bad omen among primitive peoples... or that many people believe animals are sensitive to changes in weather and can tell when an earthquake is approaching... etc.)

Let us (in a moment) take a look at some of the brain's attributes by using a numerical system of 1- 2- 3, which corresponds to the one ("Monoploblastic"), two (Diploblastic), three (Triploblastic) Germ layer development seen in the evolution of 'from primitive -to- complex' organisms in the sense that:

  1. (Aquatic... and non-symmetric?) Sponges (a simple animal) is thought by some to have one Germ layer (even though this idea brings to the fore various developmental discussions).
  2. The (aquatic... and radially symmetric) Cnidarians have two Germ layers.
  3. (Bilaterally symmetric) Life forms from earth worms to humans have three Germ layers.

Germ layers viewed as a trinity

From earth worms to humans we find three Germ layers labeled the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm... but should rightly be sequenced in the order of developmental (evolutionary) appearance as endoderm, ectoderm, mesoderm.

The endoderm layer is characterized by flattened cells that later transform into columnar cells. The cells of this layer later form the inner lining of the digestive tract, respiratory tube, and organs, such as the pancreas, liver, etc. The cells of the inner lining of glands and the tympanic cavity also arise from this layer. The cells also line the trachea, bronchi, alveoli of lungs, the urinary bladder, and a part of the urethra.

The endoderm and ectoderm gave rise to the mesoderm which gives rise to four subtypes which are formed via cell signaling and cellular interactions between the cells of the endoderm and the ectoderm:

  1. Intermediate mesoderm
  2. Paraxial mesoderm
  3. Lateral plate mesoderm
  4. Chordamesoderm

The cells of the intermediate mesoderm give rise to the kidneys and gonads, while the lateral plate mesoderm differentiates and produces the entirety of the circulatory system including the heart, the various blood cells, blood vessels, spleen, the wall of the gut, and also the wall of the animal body. The paraxial mesoderm produces the cartilage, skeletal muscles, and the dermis. The notochord or the primitive spine of the animal develops from the differentiation of the cells of the chordamesoderm. In general, the mesoderm is responsible for the formation of striated, skeletal, and smooth muscles, bones, cartilage, connective and adipose tissues, the lymphatic and circulatory systems, dermis, the genito-urinary system, and the notochord.

The ectoderm is responsible for the outermost layers of the embryo. It differentiates into three subtypes:

  1. The surface ectoderm
  2. The neural crest
  3. The neural tube

The surface ectoderm differentiates to form the epidermis, hair, nails, eye lens, sebaceous glands on the skin, cornea of the eye, tooth enamel, and the epithelium of the mouth and the nose. In layman terms, this subtype gives rise to the exoskeleton of the animal. The neural tube develops to form the brain, spinal cord, the posterior pituitary gland, the motor neurons, and the retina. The anterior pituitary gland arises by the development of the ectodermal tissue of Rathke's pouch. The peripheral nervous system, adrenal medullae, melanocytes, facial cartilage, and the dentin of teeth are formed by the cells of the neural crest. The neural crest, because of its significance, is often considered as the fourth germ layer despite being a derivative of the ectoderm.

In terms of the Archetypal wardrobe being used by the present female psyche, it has been sketched and created to resemble numerous social superficialities and not the basic structure of the animal body plan taking place over and over again in the development of animals ranging from earth worms to humans. The reason that the archetypal wardrobe is so superficial is because most women are relying on the deductions of themselves from the perspective of the male psyche which caters to the impulsiveness of their reptilian minded orientations related to personal survival and short-term immediate interests. The current trend of the female archetypal wardrobe is to follow in the footsteps of adapting antiquated fashions contoured to present social circumstances to the effect of exhibiting crude variations of attempts to conceal a nakedness that needs to be both identified and seen in the light of a full consciousness. Upon examination, it is rather silly to think that a three germ layer body plan found in the animal kingdom would give rise to sub-types of activity represented by archetypal forms and fashions as if they were necessary and needed garments adopted for a given social environment dependent on the vagaries of a self- serving male psyche which many women seeking a position of social power likewise practice in order to be viewed as "one of the boys" in order to be admitted to one social club or another... that has no interest in changing the fundamental structure of the social institution which both perpetrates and perpetuates a cycle of discord, disharmony and destabilized equalities.

While the foregoing basic biology may be unfamiliar to some readers, the point to be made is that there is some precedence for considering that the evolutionary sequence of one, two, three germ layer development may be a sequence that is repeated in the cognitive realm, not only because it too may be a repetition of a one, two, three sequence of development seen in the macromolecules called RNA, DNA and proteins, but also on the atomic level in the form of protons, neutrons, electrons. In other words, just because we see a three-patterned sequence in one area of development doesn't necessarily mean it may well occur elsewhere... or that it doesn't occur... and may in fact be a repetition because it is a pattern that repeats in nature, such as the three-patterned dawn- noon- dusk coupled with a two-patterned night/day sequence, are fundamental patterns which influence biology... at least on Earth.

In looking at hemispheric attributes, it must be noted that alternative suggestions are made regarding one or another example. Such alternatives no doubt arise from an attempted imposition of a dominant hemispheric attribute being applied, and the person making the suggestion is most likely unaware that they are doing so. In some instances a knee-jerk emotional response may be labeled and described as logic, and a logical or analytical construct be labeled and described in terms that are more rightly defined as a subject corresponding to a right-hemisphere domain. For example, we can claim that music is logical (using musical triads as an example) or that it is emotional (using two-patterned composites such as major/minor scales, loud/soft, etc...). The same thing goes for the light/dark (right hemisphere) reference compared to a 3-dimensional (left hemisphere) reference. Another example is when art is viewed by the right hemisphere in light/dark contrasts, while the left hemisphere analyzes it in terms of three additive and three subtractive colors. In other words, either or both hemispheres can be used to describe and label the same subject, causing some observers to interpret that a "whole brain" approach is a better facilitator for distinguishing truth, while they overlook the fact that a left and right hemispheric difference can be identified by using a simple system of enumeration. Many, many, many people confuse left and right... as well as the Reptilian/Limbic attributions. And yes, for those wishing to conceal their usage of one or another dominant hemisphere by mixing and matching words or thinking to supplant both by using multiple forms of labeling, all such camouflaging exercises can be unraveled with a little practice. Even those used by some who think they can practice a greater level of deception... such as those developing behaviors to beat a polygraph test.

Right Hemisphere Attributes

[Recognizable 3-patterned formula]

  • Language (All languages are said to be "Tri-modal", with a Subject, Object, Verb)
  • Logic (such as Major premise- Minor premise- Conclusion)
  • Writing (such as period- question mark- exclamation)
  • Math (take one number and add, subtract, multiply or divided another number to get a third number)

Analytically speaking... we have the:
  • Concept of the third or "mind's eye"
  • Concept of a "third ear" for some music enthusiasts as well as gifted musicians
  • Idea of a third leg (a man's penis or a cane)
  • Idea of a third hand (one's mouth used for holding items)
  • Notion of a third lip (the tongue when kissing)
  • Idea of a third vision (extra-sensory perception)
  • Singing: voice types (not including the pre-pubescent treble voice)... 3 (or 2) for Females [soprano/mezzo-soprano, contralto]; 4 (or 3) for Males [counter-tenor/tenor, baritone, bass].
    Voice Types
  • Objective- Subjective- neither Objective nor Subjective state of being
  • Identifies the parts in wholes which often defines a multiplicity
  • Analogically digital (from the one to the many)
Reptilian complex/Limbic System

[Recognizable 1-patterned formula]

  • Reptilian: Brain stem, hind brain, mid brain & cerebellum - the most ancient parts, connected to the spine, controls movement, breathing and heartbeats.
  • Limbic system: consisting of many specialist organs including the Hypothalamus, hippocampus -developed in mammals. Some memory functions and generation of emotional responses.

Left Brain, Right Brain, Whole Brain?
  • Procreative drive (turns some into rapists, incestuous, etc...)
  • Concerned first and foremost with safety, security, survival.
  • Seen in what is sometimes referred to as the "zone" of athletes.
  • Seen in the "highly focused" activities of detectives, scientists, mathematicians, criminals, etc...
Left Hemisphere Attributes

[Recognizable 2- patterned formula]
(dichotomy, polarization, duality, {symmetry? non-symmetrical?})

  • Music (such as major/minor scales, black/white piano keys, etc...)
  • Art (such as light/dark contrasts, close/far depth perception, etc..)
  • Dance (such as slow/fast, modern/traditional, etc...)
  • Singing (such as high and low pitch, strong/weak, soft/loud, etc..)
  • Objective/Subjective distinctions (dichotomy assigned singularly to right-left hemispheres, respectively)
  • Seeks for the whole in individuality to create a singleness
  • Digitally analogical (out of many the one... like E pluribus Unum... which some claim is politically problematic since the many are used to supply the larger desires of greed for a few).

Many readers can find references which "pair" up the 2 and 3, the 2 and 1, the 1 and 3, as well as the 1, 2, 3 in many guises, with or without an explicit (one, two, three/ primary, secondary, tertiary/ 1st, 2nd, 3rd) or concealed (prefix. infix, suffix/ monism, dualism, plurality/ small, medium, large)... etc., description. The following image of Roman dicers describes one such occasion, with the left and right figures respectively offering a "3" and a "2". Metaphorically, the figure on the left represents the left hemisphere "3" and the figure on the right represents the right hemisphere "2".

Roman dicers expressing 2 and 3 preferances

In some instances, such as the Yin and Yang groupings, we find that the right hemisphere is designated the female side and the left hemisphere is designated the male side. However, from antiquity we find that the right testicle was thought to be the originating source for the male and that the left testicle was the originating source for the female. It had been speculated that this was due to associations of the right testicle being larger and the left testicle hanging lower... at least in those men examining themselves in such a manner... though some men claim that the left testicle is larger than the right. Another reference to the "2/3" pairing, since we are at the present discussing the testes, is seen in the following comment:

(By resting in the scrotum, the testis is kept at a temperature 2-3º C lower than the core body temperature: Medscape: Testes and Epididymis Anatomy)

While such references don't highlight references to the "2" and "3", we can cull such numerical indices from physiology if we recall that when a person has a stroke on the left side of the head the right side of the body is affected and vice versa. The point to make is that we need to look for representations of the "2" and "3" on the opposite sides of the body which correspond to the different hemispheres.

On the right side of the body corresponding to the left hemisphere and its designated "3", we find a Tricuspid heart value and a 3-lobed lung. On the left side of the body corresponding to the right hemisphere and its designated "2", we find a mitral (or bi/two-cuspid) heart valve and a 2-lobed lung. Like the two hemispheres separated by the corpus callosum, the two sides of the heart are also separated:

The right and left sides of the heart have different functions. The right side of the heart collects oxygen-poor blood from the body and pumps it to the lungs. The left side of the heart collects oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it to the body.

Do the right and left sides of the heart have different functions?

Interestingly, when we look at the major cardiac valves, we find three... 3-flapped valves and on... 2-flapped valve. While the "3 -to- 1" ratio may have no referencing significance to most readers, for those interested in the study of threes (or threes phenomena), it can be correlated to other three-to-one examples, such as the 3 stop codons and 1 start codon found in amino acids.

Nomeclature of the Major Cardiac Valves

In order to appreciate how the heart is divided into a left and right sides in order for the reader to correlate the "3-valve" and "2-valve" divisions, the use of another image may be helpful:

The evolutionary development of the Germ layers occurred in a sequence where we might describe a pre- or no-development time prior to one Germ layer such as the Endoderm which was followed evolutionarily by two layers Endoderm/Ectoderm, which eventually gave rise to the present standard of three Germ layers with an Endoderm- Mesoderm- Ectoderm. Here is a presentation providing a look at the development of the Germ layers:

Let us look at the Germ layer differentiations in terms of their origin, while keeping in mind the question of why are there no living examples of animals with only one germ layer (though we might consider sponges to be a selective example of a precursor stage):

While many comparisons of the brain hemispheres describe pros and cons to other's views, even supposed "scientific" appraisals of Roger Sperry's original left/right hemisphere specializations are countered with a different set of differences(!) being offered as a superior formula of interpretation... yet none of them are offering a correlation to a numerical form of indexing. Here's yet another chart from a page describing hemispheric attributes to be disputed as being governed by a single hemisphere:

Left Brain vs. Right Brain

Whereas one would think that new information would be incorporated into a new ideology, that is not often the case. What we find is that New Information is used to contour old ideas into giving the impression of original perspectives when in actuality, the underlying institutions and methods of control over the populace becomes entrenched in a new way by a few. Either new ideas are adapted to old views, or new views are adapted to old ideas, thus retaining the same leadership with the old modes and methods labeled and applied to whatever contextual setting in politically correct and can be ideologically justified to assist in the perpetuation of themselves and their like-minded ilk.

For example, though one might develop a New Constitution and/or Bill of Rights, those who are presently in leadership positions would simply shift themselves... their ideology, their philosophy to accommodate the revisions. They would still be in charge but playing by rules which continue to advantage them and their selected few. Hence, the old Archetypal wardrobes are either given frivolous embellishments or stripped of all symbolism, except for the same main... same basic scaffolding. In other words, while all the frills may be removed to leave not but a single drab color of a simplistic garment, it has simply become the conventionalized garment of a particular era... but the leadership and the lack of vision remains. Neanderthals are Neanderthals and will always be Neanderthals, regardless of what, or how, or why, or when a particular style of Archetypal wardrobe is worn for whatever occasion. Neanderthals are incapable of having any vision beyond their grasp or fingertips. Neanderthals in business, government and religion have a "one size fits all" mentality, and wants everyone to adopt this world-view, though they may speak of diversity, equality, human rights, etc... Such things can only be thought of in the context of their own single-minded Neanderthalism.
