The Heart Mathematician Institute has found that the heart and brain maintain a continuous two-way dialogue. Where each organ affects the functioning of the other. Although little known, the heart sends much more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. And the signals that the heart sends to the brain can affect perception, the emotional processes of higher recognition functions. The heart also produces a strong rhythmic electromagnetic field in the body and this can be measured in brain waves around
