Anatomy and mind
Anatomy finds a necessity for nerves to convey the mandate
of mind to muscle and so cause action; but what does
anatomy say when the cords contract and become
immovable? Has mortal mind ceased
speaking to them, or has it bidden them to be impotent?
Can muscles, bones, blood, and nerves rebel against mind
in one instance and not in another, and become cramped
despite the mental protest?
Unless muscles are self-acting at all times, they are
never so, - never capable of acting contrary to mental
direction. If muscles can cease to act and become rigid
of their own preference, - be deformed or symmetrical,
as they please or as disease directs, - they must be
self-directing. Why then consult anatomy to learn how mortal
mind governs muscle, if we are only to learn from
anatomy that muscle is not so governed?
