As you may know, I’m restless to the point of not even being able to settle on one subject to study at university. On the other hand, I am a proud joint honours student. As such, I believe that my interests in each of my disciplines – from my three A Levels: Philosophy and Ethics, Psychology, and Latin – are as serious as each other, regardless of one being a essay-and-thought-based humanity, the other a science (and don’t beat me over the head with that “it’s not a science” rubbish when I have to learn neuroscience), and the last an ancient language in which I almost became fluent.
But some people don’t think that. Some people think that the creative and analytic disciplines are incompatible or conflicting. Again, I suppose that is rut.
My word alone, however, would say nought for life.
Do you feel that you use both hemispheres of your brain equally – do you love disciplines like an art or a music as well as physics or maths? Do you find yourself straying between this imagined line of the sciences and the humanities, pointing a laughing finger at those who suggest that we are either creative or analytic?
Well, then, I may need your help in a blog project I’m creating. For the sheer sake of it.
The below vlog explains my idea and reasonings in more detail. And you just know you love my English accent. 😉
Also, it’s an excuse to show of my new Reading Rocs Quidditch kit!
Effectively, I’m looking for bloggers who wouldn’t mind either writing a # page and taking a photo of them with it, or writing a blog post of their thoughts, or shooting a short, editable vlog scene explaining what makes them a ‘corpus callosum’ person. That’s code for the bundle of neurons between left and right hemisphere that facilitates interhemispheric communication. Basically, we are trying to get past that age-old split-brain theory.
Anyway, let’s just see how this goes.
