“Pain is a fascinating phenomenon. The way the brain registers physical pain, for instance, is not only complex but counterintuitive.
*
*
*
Though the pain of a stubbed toe or a headache may seem like a single, unified experience, it actually represents the sum of two different experiences created by two separate areas of the brain—
*
*
one called the posterior insula, which registers the sensation of pain (its quality, intensity, and so on)
*
*
and the other the anterior cingulate cortex, which registers pain’s unpleasant character.”
*
*
*
Remember this author is a skilled doctor and a Buddhist. His perspective seems to be pragmatic and very unique to me.
*
*
So, we have a judgment center for feeling pain’s uncomfortableness.
*
*
So, I would say, we can influence pain as it passes through our mind, cool.
*
*
More to come,
