To the Heart of the Matter
Of all the internal organs that allow us to function, it is the heart that has over the span of humanity received more attention than any other. Before the advent of modern medicine and its myopic view of its function, the heart was thought to be the seat of thinking, knowing, wisdom and feeling. There is good reason for this. Without the heart beating in the chest life as we experience it quickly ends.
