The Brain - The Mind - God?

Can you see the brain in Michaelangelo's "Creation of Adam?"

Can you also spot the cross section of the brain in Raffaello's "Transfiguration?"

I searched the web on why did Michaelangelo painted God within the Brain. I could not find any satisfactory explanation or dissertion.Explanation #1 : The background drapery of the airborne God is shapped strikingly like a human brain. Medical experst confirm this observation. Michelangelo's study of human anatomy might have helped him in creating such an accurate picture. Explanation #2 : Michelangelo routinely made use of symbolism and humor in both his painting and sculpture.

In the book "Master Key System" by Charles Haanel, "We are coming to think of God as dwelling in man rather than as operating on men from without."

In the "Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace Wattles, "The Intelligent Substance which is All, and in All, and which lives in All and lives in you, is consciously Living Substance."

Hi Nice Blog . In this, the body is studied by regions rather than by organs. This is of importance to the surgeon who exposes different planes after the skin incision and who, of course, must be perfectly familiar with structures as he explores the limbs and Human Anatomy study cavities.
