The heart begin to form in the fetus before the brain.
The electrical impulse of the heart is 40 - 60 times stronger than the brain. It is many more times stronger than any other electrical impulse in the body.
The electricity generated by the heart can be detected and measured in the brain patterns of another person nearby.
The electrical impulse of each heart beat can be measured 3 to 4 feet from the body.
The average heart beats 110,000 times a day, 40 million times a year, 3.5 billion times in a lifetime.
Your heart produces enough power in 1 hour to lift 2,000 pounds 3 feet off the ground. In one hour and 15 minutes the heart could lift a Toyota Prius!
The source of the heartbeat is in the heart, not the brain. When they do a heart transplant ,they cannot reconnect the heart and brain. The heart beats on its own.
The heart sends more information to the brain, than the brain does to the heart.
The heart's vascular system is 60,000 miles long and can wrap around the earth twice.
Different people's (or even animal's) heart cells, will all beat in unison in a petrie dish. Different people's brain cells in a petrie dish will not communicate with each other and die.
The heart works without interruption for 70-80 years, without care or cleaning, usually without repair or replacement. Do you need energy or stamina? Access the heart!
Plato theorized that reasoning originated with the brain, but that passions originated in the “fiery” heart.
There are 40,000 sensory neurons relaying information to the brain from the heart leading researchers to call the heart the "little brain" and to coin the field as neurocardiology.
There is actually more information sent from the heart to the brain on a daily basis via these 4 means of communications than vice versa. Indeed, the neurons within the heart enable the heart to learn, remember, and make decisions independent of the brain's cerebral cortex.
The heart emits an electrical field 60 times greater in amplitude than the activity in the brain and an electromagnetic field 5,000 times stronger that of the brain.
The electromagnetic field of two individuals (human or pet and human), touching or within a few feet of each other, can interact so that energy activity in the heart of one individual is measured in the brain waves of the other. The act of touch for healing therapies can be postulated to be due to this method of communication.
With each heartbeat, arteries carry about 20 to 25 percent of your blood to your brain, where billions of cells use about 20 percent of the oxygen and fuel your blood carries.
