Eastern mythology states all of the thinking resides in the belly chakra. Buddha's big belly emphasizes this. This is poignant for they describe the famous solar plexus and the neuronal fibres found in the celiac plexus (another name for it), which is close to a major artery. From here the splanchnic nerves arise and postganglionic and preganglionic neurons feed impulses from here to the eyes, skin, blood vessels and skeletal muscles, but more interestingly, the pineal gland whose intuitive powers have been praised in the Occident for aeons but until recently only recognized in western science. This is where the so-called gut instincts come from. Our bodies are constantly feeding information to the brain which must decipher it, the body is thus a whole process, nothing works alone.
