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.
