Brain Art

William James "The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind."












Which picture do you think represents your brain best?

Definitely the last one.

I might carry it around with me but I don't always think to look in it.

Anne Brooke said...

Love that brain handbag - such a great idea!

ChainingMagic said...

Definitely the brain riding the waves! There's always a lot going on up there (whether I'd like it to or not)!

my life with bipolar disorder said...

Thanks, Casdok, for these cute brains. Mine is probably the second or third one, very overloaded :)

I like what William James said about altering one's life by altering his attitude of mind. My attitude is sometimes the greatest hindrance in my own life. Hmm... I need to change my attitude, or I may need to a change of brain ;) Nancie

Chris H said...

My brain isn't up there at all! It's too individual! I think the brain handbag is kinda FREAKY. I don't like it either! weird eh?

KC's Blog said...

Mine is probably the second one, my brain does seem to be just like the picture is. I like the brain purse!

laurentius rex said...

I like the one with the hats.

Mind you I had my brain scanned on Saturday and I am anxiously hoping that everything that ought to have been there was and there was not anything that did not ought to have been as I have a pathological fear that either half of it is missing or the space is taken up by a massive tumour.

DJ Kirkby said...

I'd like to think no 7 represents my brain but I do love the look of no 3, so organised!

abstractjenn said...

I love the lock and key brain. As an adult student I feel like my brain has just been opened.

You always have the best pictures!!

VBF! said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA brilliant!!! I am definately the cage picture! I often feel trapped by my own mind! :-) xx

Mima said...

I love the one that looks a bit like an x-ray, but I think being honest my brain is one of the cluttered ones, maybe the one with the UFO above it!

I remember the moment as a teenager when I realised that as an island no-one was ever going to be able to totally understand me, it was quite a shock. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to build a bridge between two minds like that, and fully understand someone else!

laughingwolf said...

#3 from the top...

buffalodickdy said...

2nd from the last... at least when I was younger!

captain corky said...

Maybe the third one down. It looks like an awesome party.

Nancy said...

Great photos.

I like the brain handbag.

I don't have the brain power this morning to figure out what rolls around in my noodle!

Holding It Together said...

The first one that jumped out at me is the one near the top with the different compartments or rooms. I feel like it is hard to integrate the different areas of my life and my personality sometimes.

Phil Plasma said...

The third one as it shows best the disparity between right and left brain thinking which accurately reflects my life is often made up of small instances of conflict between the two sides.

Jennie said...

Mine is the brain handbag, usually full of junk.
Don't brains look funny.

Dr.John said...

I like the one with all the hats but haven't the slightest idea what it means.

Suzy said...

I like the one with the lock and key...for me it's unlocking all the secrets I've kept to myself.

Great post Cas.

My love to you and C.

Suzy

titration said...

What a totally fun post. Your posts are so creative.

I'd say I'm the brain with the people who look like their all having sex. Since I'm newly in my relationship. :)

Odat said...

I like the last two!!! hehe.

This reminds me of a saying that I have hanging on my refridgerator:

"If you can't change your fate, change your attitude".

Peace

craig andrew said...

Mine would be a picture of birds flying away with a brain in their talons C:)

Ellee Seymour said...

What an amazing collection of brains. Mine is the frazzled one, I think that's second from the top.

Where have all these new people come from, btw?

Ellee Seymour said...

Re the new people, I confused your blog with someone elses for a moment, what's happened to my brain? I think it's got legs and walked off...

Samantha said...

Got to be the second one for me! I love these pictures.

Ron said...

Morning Casdok~

Ok...this is the COOLEST post!! Awesome photos!!

I would definately be #1 (because I wear MANY hats...meaning, I enjoy making a living, doing MANY things)

Thanks for such a fun and interesting post!

P.S. I wonder if the last one comes in a backpack? Looks like PRADA.

Lane said...

What brilliant pictures.
My brain feels like the third picture - a brain of two halves. Sometimes the flowers grow and sometimes it's like a ghost town.

The handbag looks like a giant sand worm:-)

Great quote too:-)

Amanda said...

I got you something. Hope you like it. Stop by my blog whenever you get a chance. I know you're a busy girl.

The purse one sort of creeped me out a little. I don't know why.

Amanda said...

Sorry, I had to say this, too.

I really liked the one with the bridge. I would hope that one would be mine.

David said...

Having spent the last month or so looking a pictures and videos of where my cochlear implant would be surgically implanted, I found your post amazing. I struggle with having a cold manufactured piece of technology put in a place where warm squishy soft things "live"
Nice post! I love this blog.

Jade said...

I definitely think my brain is the lock and key brain. Everything feels like a puzzle or a door that needs to be opened to me...so...thats the best fit..for my brain anyways.

Which fits you?

Reluctant Housewife said...

Fascinating images!

I see the brain as being most like the image with the bridge. It is through our brains that we experience everything. The way we're "wired" - the paths that we form between synapses - affects the way in which we view everything - the world around us , our own experiences, and other people. It's our bridge to the outside world. It's also our filter for all the information we received through our senses.

I'm not sure that came out very clear...

Jen said...

Either of the cut open heads with brains stuffed-full of... stuff. ;)

Traceytreasure said...

Hi Casdok! Once again, I'm so glad that I visited your site. I wonder where you get all of your wonderful pictures. I would probably have to say #2 from the top. I wouldn't use that brain purse, though. I'm so glad that you shared all of those pictures! Happy Monday! Hope you have a great week! Hugs!

Jessica said...

I would have to say the brain wave. Up and down, and thrashing about.

FXSmom said...

I couldn't identify with any of them. I feel sad. I think I'm going to go to google and find my brain.

Seamus said...

3 usually and 10 today!

Akelamalu said...

The last one definitely! LOL

Working mum said...

Mine would be the one with the lightning strikes. Like there's all this stuff in there trying to get out!

Thanks for popping by my place. I have been to yours before, but I will return more frequently in future.

Tom Foolery said...

The Cage.(your post has given me an idea for my photo blog) Thanks TFX

the mother of this lot said...

Obviously, I am the one with the writhing couples in it. That's how I ended up with this lot.

Shelly said...

I'm quite fond of the third picture, left brain right brain...it all makes so much sense.

Melissa said...

I love the #2 pic. That's pretty cool.

Julie at Virtual Nexus said...

What a brilliant post. Lightning strike every time.....!!

Bina said...

Okay, I didn't see a brain frying on a skillet so I'll have to go with the brain shooting lightning. I feel like that most days.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dave Coulter said...

Oh, if those are my choices I'll take #3 & #11. #3 is closer to my reality, and #11, well, it looks like fun! ;)

(I feel like I'm ordering take-out at the Chinese restaurant)

Yep, one's attitude/outlook can help a lot...that's for sure.

Niksmom said...

Wow! Great post. I really love the quote. As for which brain is most like mine...depends on the day or the circumstance. I love the first comment...that sounds kind of like me, too! LOL

FXSmom said...

I found my brain!! I told I was going to go find it. Here it is: http://www.fitbuff.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/brain-gym-exercises.jpg

Casdok said...

Well done fxsmom! Nice one!

motherx said...

I think the one that represents me is the lock and key. As I have the power to control my happiness and for some reason I tend to lock it away and get bogged down.

Bonnie said...

Now I know what happened my brain was stolen by aliens...

mom2spiritedboy said...

I think the lock and key brain is the one I would pick to represent my brain - but I both LOVE and am creeped out by the handbag brain.

Lady in red said...

mine has to be the third one down although mine is proportioned differently as I think mine is 3/4 a day in the park and 1/4 dank misery.

However in my younger days before I changed my attitide it would probably be the caged one that represented my mind better.

Yes I do firmly believe that you cn change your life by changing your attitude.

Beth said...

Alas, right now, I feel my brain most closely resembles the one in the ocean waves!

Jim said...

I am all of them depending on my mood and situation in my life.

Love those pictures.

Thanks !!!

Have a wonderful Monday. I know its late over there since it is only 7:35 PM over here.

Jim

WomensDaily said...

Great post! Mine is definitely currently the third from the bottom.

Kathryn said...

The third picture strikes a chord for me. The handbag kinda grosses me out. ;)

Sandpiper said...

Fantastic post! I love it! I would have a hard time choosing one. I have these mood swings, you know? LOL

Mimi Lenox said...

Definitely the purse and the heels. Love it.

CC said...

Where do you always get such awesome posts?!

Lightning brain. That's me. Aaack!!!!!

Raven said...

These are great. I'm torn between #3 and #7. Hmmm. Number six might be more where I really am. Very interesting.

Elissa said...

I love this quote! Love it!!!

Meredith said...

Mine's the one with the alien abtuctee and the wildfire, lol.

Swistle said...

Oh, cool! That purse makes me feel a little queasy.

WesterWitch/Headmistress said...

None of the pictures for me . . . I still think that so many people don't realise just how powerful the mind is and how devastating having a mind and body out of harmony can be.

bart said...

excellent overview of images, i don't have any particular favourite here, most are special in their own way...

keep well...

whimsical brainpan said...

I think it's a combination of #2 and #3.

CrazyCath said...

Hi Casdok - thanks for being over mine. I think the third one is my brain - I CAN be organised and analytical and logical, but then again, I CAN be just a jumbled mess!

I'm not sure I would like that handbag now I realise it resembles a brain... yuk!

ragdoll said...

Very intriguing. My first reaction goes to the purse because I like purses.

Then the one that appears to me as a lock opening because in my latter years so much seems to have been unlocked and available to me.

Raising and providing intensive therapy for a daughter with reactive attachment disorder expanded my heart and knowledge base for children with this.

cbh said...

oohhh- i'm probably the 3rd one. i have that left brain / right brain battle all the time.

Suburbia said...

I hate to say it but prob the last. My brain is like my handbag mostly because it's full of rubish, yet you know there's lots of useful stuff in there, if only you could find it!

citizen of the world said...

I don't know which one is most like me, but I prefer the one with the lightning bolts. Very cool!

Andrew J. Cutler said...

If you truly understand William James quote then, as for me, the answer is obvious: All of them!

River said...

Half the time my brain would be the one with the padlock and key - hidden secrets, the other half of the time my brain is tucked up in bed and fast asleep - hiding, I suppose...

Anonymous said...

Would you please tell me the name of the artist who creates these amazing images?

Casdok said...

They are amazing arnt they! Sorry as i did this post some time ago i cant even remember where i found them.
