What if the brain just decided that it wanted to look like a walnut?
The brain was successful be- cause they both have a left and a right hemisphere and share some similar internal wrinkles. The truth is this correlation has not been scientifically proven (yet), but they still have many things in common (yes, they go together so well like Aries and Sagittarius) because walnuts contain high amounts of omega 3 fatty acids such as alpha-linolenic acid that promotes a healthy….. brain! Mind-blowing? Oh yes, indeed.
