ANATOMY:  The cerebellum (lower brain) has 2 hemispheres separated by a portion called thevermis (worm).  The white matter appears as the leaf shapes called arbor vitae (tree of life).

BEYOND:  Paradise lost or found? The cerebellum area of the brain is responsible for synching up our bodily movements with our intentions. It is composed of 2 hemispheres (imagined as Adam and Eve) made from tissue called arbor vitae (tree of life) divided by the vermis (worm, serpent). Was God’s plan to set up the  “fall” by giving us the gift of freewill?  Did the serpent work to unite or divide intention and action? It requires wisdom to ensure balance of our action with our intentions.  The saying goes “Heaven’s here, on Earth.”
