Heart vs Mind
In human beings, the thought process originates in the mind or the brain that is inside the head of an individual. Logical, rational thinking is attributed to the brain or the mid of a person, but when it comes to emotional thinking, it is the human heart that takes precedence over his mind. When we think about feelings or emotions, we make use of our heart, or so to speak. Of course, we do know that mind (brain) and the heart are just two different organs inside our body, but their differences are not limited to their looks and functions, but how we perceive or look at these differences. This article tries to differentiate between heart and mind not on the basis of physics but on the basis of thinking of human beings.
When we study biology, we study about the human brain and not mind. However, in daily conversation, it is the mind that is used to refer to as an entity that allows us to think and help in taking decisions in a logical and rational manner. So when we are thinking about a physical problem and its solution, we are really making use of our brain or mind’s capacity to arrive at a solution. It is our mind that tells us what is right and what is wrong and often helps us in taking decisions that are right for us as a member of the society.
It is our mind that tells us how to stay away from pain and dangerous situations. It is one organ that has been helping humans to get away from situations that can be harmful for them. Again, it is our mind that tells us how to derive pleasure, and we indulge in activities that are pleasurable to us.
According to science, heart is a major organ inside our body that is responsible for pumping blood inside all parts of our bodies. We live as long as our heart gets oxygen, and it continues to pump blood, but if we go by literature, heart has been assigned an altogether different role, and that is to control our feelings and emotions. Though this is not the fact, and we think and feel on the basis of what our brain perceives. Nevertheless, for artists and poets, it is the heart that governs our feelings and we take decisions on the basis of what our heart says, especially when it comes to human relationships.
What is the difference between Heart and Mind?
• According to science, heart is an important organ that pumps blood to all important organs of our body and keeps us alive. Mind, or the brain, is another important organ that is where thinking originates.
• However, from the point of view of artists, it is the mind that controls our thought process and tells us what is right and wrong, and it is the heart that governs our feelings.
• Heart governs our mind when we are in love while, in all other life situations, it is the mind that takes precedence over heart.
