Only Emanuel Swedenborg and George Gurdjieff offered profound insights into the mysterious workings of this unique brain organ.
According to Swedenborg, the cerebrum (our voluntary) is oriented to the outer terrestrial world of the senses, but the cerebellum (involuntary) is focused on all the inner states of the cerebrum—its intentions, passions and affections. In other words, the cerebellum is wired to watch over our inner (psycho-spiritual) world.
Why? Because it is responsible for maintaining equilibrium and stability between our organic processes and our passions—otherwise, our individuality would become completely torn apart.
Also, the influences picked up by the cerebellum go into forming sperm in males and ovum in females. So as Gurdjieff once told a follower, John Bennett, the cerebellum also gets rid of any superfluous ideas that are not kindred with, or corresponding to, a person’s true passions. This is an important stage (called the “harnel-aoot” by Gurdjieff) in which we must become vigilant over our wishes—before they can automatically enter (unchallenged) our reproductive and generative processes.
This also means that a male’s sperm and female’s ovum becomes inwardly changed during genuine spiritual transformation. All process (good or bad) produces a corresponding bio-affect (leading to something taking actual form).
In heaven, these bio-affects determine which males and females will make the best eternal partners. (Sorry, but political correctness does not trump these universal laws!)
