If you look at a brain it is astonishing how separate the two hemispheres are, they'd flop apart if it wasn't for the skull. It's like our left hand doesn't know what our right hand is doing, and it seems to me that we need a constant interplay of instincts and logic to keep it all connected up - but there is this Achilles heel which working well makes us the best we can be but also is why it's so easy to throw a spanner in the works.
