Ancient Egyptians believed the heart was the center of intelligence
and emotion. They also thought so little of the brain that during mummification, they removed the brain entirely from
bodies. (Source: Emode)
Read about some Egyptian contributions to modern medicine in The Ancient Art of Medicine.
"Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions
and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife. The first question was, 'Did
you bring joy?' The second was, 'Did you find joy?'" ~ Leo Buscaglia
