Reason is not the be-all and end-all

"Cogito, ergo sum" (I think, therefore, I am), as the French philosopher René Descartes claimed in the 17th century, marking the beginning of the Age of the Enlightenment. This expression promoted the idea of cognitive intelligence, which is, in fact, what makes man 'human' – the pride of God's creation.

Descartes wasn't aware at that time, that he was talking about the capacities of human intelligence that originate from the neocortex, which is tucked away inside the cerebrum, part of the human brain.

In terms of the evolution of mankind, this is Mother Nature's latest development inside our head.
The neocortex – otherwise known as the frontal lobe within the cerebrum – allows us to think logically, analyse problems, develop strategies and put solutions into place as we have planned them.
