I'm reading a book about dolphins and was amazed to discover that the area in the brain that controls empathy is much larger in dolphins than it is in humans. Then when I started to think about it actually made sense.
Researchers using MRI's of both human and dolphin brains have discovered that the area that controls empathy is much thicker and larger in dolphins than in humans. What this research says is that dolphins live their lives more on a level of we, or us, than do humans who live more on the level of I, or me. What this means is that dolphins have reached a level of social interaction that pretty much blows our social interaction out of the water. (Pun intended)
This actually made me wonder if perhaps human empaths are also people experiencing a growth of brain tissue in this same region of the brain that is so well developed in dolphins.
If that's true than you, or we, if I include myself, empaths are in fact the next level of evolution in the human race!
I know many of you have trouble dealing with your emapthic abilities but you should be proud of the fact that you are in fact the for runners of the next generation of human evolution!
