Hand to Hand
As I was swiftly steering the wheel in the car last week, my right hand fingers squeezed over the left hand and I hurt my left index finger. Looking at the scratch hurriedly, nevertheless, it occurred to me that my right hand acted aggressively. As I drove, I thought that my left hand was a victim of my right hand’s robustness.
Then again, a day later in the shower my right hand fingers hurt my left elbow. This time, however, I thought about the perfect synchrony between my two hands. I thought how my hands collaborate, complement and work in unison all the times. How then could they hurt each other?
Indeed, science tells us that our hands, like the rest of our body parts, are “controlled” by our brain. Yet again we have nerves in all parts of our body including in the hands and fingers. Hands also work with the brain, the same way as hands worth in between themselves.
Look at your hands, at fingers and at nails and see how similar they are — like identical twins — and yet each may convey to you a different sense of their being and current status.
