Body, Mind, and Heart

Evolutionary biology, neurology, and even simple anatomy all make it quite clear that our human brain has elements that make us more cognitively advanced than other animals. Yet we still share great similarity with other animals in our organic and physical functions.

Thus it could be said that the mind was built on the body. There is a certain sequence of order and complexity inherent in this relationship.

Thus it is no surprise that the body reacts powerfully with emotions, while the mind calculates and maps with language and thoughts.

Put another way: The body has ancient emotions. The mind has new knowledge.

What of the heart? I believe the heart has wisdom. Could it be possible that the transcendence of both body and mind lie within the wisdom of the heart?
