The Brain is not in your control. It is just a small physical entity weighing a kilo that is sitting right up in your head. It is busy directing and coordinating the various bodily functions.

It is something that is distinctly present and cannot be subdued. It keeps a watch on your thoughts and actions, and is evolved to varied degree in different individuals.
