To move "straightforward" or ahead, a start is to
note that the Cranium or Cephalon lacks "straight" features, except
for one structure, the Sagittal suture. To think "sagittally" is
typical of Sagatious Sages, as if to underscore that "thinking straight as
an arrow" is a path to wisdom. The term Sagitta (arrow) found in
"straight as an arrow" is applied to the serrated midline Skull
suture joining the left and right parietal bones or halfs of the CAP, CUP or
CUPola of the head or Cranial vault. For anatomists, any plane parallel to the
Sagttal suture is a Sagittal plane. Bacause by these pages we honor Medicine and the Healing Arts, we must mention Sagittarius, also known as Chiron, the
centaur who taught Esculapius surgery and how to "shoot arrows
straight". From Chiron we get Khirurgh, Chirofano or quirofano, Cirujano
and Chiropractor, which in Ukrainian, Spanish and English stand for surgical
operating room, surgeon and therapists who heal by hand Manipulations (manus
Returning to "straightFORWARD", a frontal point of
the head is the METOPIC area or FOREHAED or in Spanish by FRENTE. In Ukrainian,
forehead is CHOLO, and it represents a landmark of man or CHOLOvik. The human
Forehead and Frontal cerebral lobe are larger than in other simians, a likely
reason why humans have greater capacity for FORETHOUGHT and penchant to be
conFRONTational and to become obnoxious and noxious.
It is self-evident that most organisms are monoCEPHALIC. However, ANENCEPHALIC births are well known, (a fatal CEREBRAL or CEPHALON maldevelopment). Recent studies show that nearly 70% of instances of anencephaly, spina bifida, and related birth defects can be prevented by folic (foliage) acid pills taken before and during early pregnancy.
The presence of two, three, four, or many heads is referred
to as BICEPS, TRICEPS, QUADRICEPS, and MULTI or POLYCEPHALY. In medical
parlance, BICEPS, TRICEPS, QUADRICEPS, refers to muscles with two, three, or
four tendon "heads" or insertion points.
Biblical theologians have debated if the domicile of the soul is the head or the heart. Racists South Africa, not long ago debated if a deceased "white" recipient of cardiac transpant from a "Black" donor could be burried among "Whites".
