The Brain has Grown and Folded: All in the Mind

Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, science correspondent at the Greenygrey. Greenygrey in the human world was totally separate from the Folding Mirror poetry form when the two concepts emerged five years ago. However, through research and new discoveries the two fields have converged over the last half-decade.

In the natural world and human architecture there are many examples of greenygrey folding mirrors, such as horizons and reflections.

Greenygrey All in the Mind

The Greenygrey in the human mind is most easily defined as a kind of bipolar schizophrenia: the division of the mind into at least two separate parts; more vertical than horizontal.

Meanwhile, the Folding Mirror poetry form divides two halves of poetry with a middle line: more horizontal than vertical.

The Greenygrey concept has therefore provided a lot of conceptual material for Folding Mirror poems.

Physical Evidence of Folding Brain Folds to Fit Skull

While the Greenygrey is only a concept when it comes to the human brain, the actual physical matter is called Gyri (ridges) and Sulci (crevices), and it has folded itself to fit into our skulls.

Apparently, if the brain was unwrapped it would be the size of a pillowcase.

Gyrisulci doesn’t seem that far off the Greenygrey to me!

Marc Latham drew this self-portrait of what he suspected to be an ADHD mind around about the conception time of the Greenygrey and Folding Mirror poetry form:
