"Where the left hemisphere's relationship with the world is one of reaching out to grasp, and therefore to use, the right hemisphere's appears to be one of reaching out -- just that. Without purpose."

So on the left, the brain is purposefully grasping, and on the right, it's all fluttering fingers feeling. Sounds like a balanced relationship: one half is sensitive and nurturing and the other half is grasping and opportunistic. The two collaborate beautifully under certain conditions, but in the world as it is, Lefty tells Righty to shut up until bedtime.

Hey Brian, this might be out of context, but have you tried Swami Ramdevs yoga? I know you do Tai Chi which helps with stress, but you should give Swami Ramdevs yoga a try, I've heard it cures nearly all diseases and brings real peace to the mind.
