You can teach an old brain new tricks
Neuroplasticity is its name
The mind is what the brains does – they say
But the reverse may be true, just the same
There are no lights, sounds, colours
Or smells inside the brain
Only patterns of electrical information
And our sense receptors
That help the brain to sculpt itself
To rewire itself, as it were, and keep you sane,
By conscious habits of thought and action.
They say machines can’t fix themselves
But what of the power of mind over matter?
I think, therefore I am isn’t just idle chatter.
