nervous system is composed of an array of nerves, thebrain, and spinal cord. The nervoussystem acts as a mainframe controller of thebody. Information that is sent to your brain is usedto activate all your actions and reactions. The brain is thought to be the physical portion which isintertwined with your mind. Your mind is thought to be intangible things such as emotions,thoughts, and perceptions. The study of the brain has made it abundantly clear that our thoughtsexist as measurable forms of energies / electricity in the brain tissue (Mo, 2006). For example,your arm will lift if you stimulate a particular part of the brain. This implies that thoughts aresome form of matter.
Furthermore, according to Mo (2006), brain activity was simultaneously paralleled with the thought of a single word by researchers at the University of New Mexicoconducting a study using a refined functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technique.The concept of an independent mind that transcends physical functions of the bodythrough the central nervous system is not completely justified and can be countered withcontrasting evidence. It appears that the mind controls the body in the way the electrical systemcontrols a computer.Therefore, the mind affects practically everything in one's body. For example, the mind is dependent on the specific sense organs. The senses themselves arealterations of the nerve ends that have specific ways for facilitating stimuli to act on the nerveends. Let's take the eye, for example. The eye is basically the optic nerve diffused to create theretina and is mutated in specific ways to make it perceptive to vibrations. To illustrate, supposeone sees a picture on the wall. My eyes, the light, and the optic nerves are all the physical partsthat are involved in seeing the picture. However, in order to see the picture, our mind must beconscious of it. If one was to close his or her eyes, he or she would not see the picture. Or if onehad an eye disease and could not see out of his or her eyes, then this person would also not beable to see the picture. This is proof that the mind is dependent on the central nervous system(Pyle, 2009).
