Everyone wants to know more about this organ in charge of long sacred mystery. Experts propose to manage, improve, repair, or even feed it. Without wishing to pronounce the word, some scholars consider the brain as the substitute for the soul. The more materialistic see it the secret of being, the tabernacle of our intelligence, as well as our emotions and our passions.
