New study finds generosity is linked to specific part of brain








Scientists from Oxford University and UCL (University College, London) have identified part of our brain that helps us learn to be good to others. The discovery could help understanding of conditions like psychopathy where people's behaviour is extremely antisocial. The researchers were led by Dr Patricia Lockwood, who explained: 'Prosocial behaviours are social behaviours that benefit other people. They are a fundamental aspect of human interactions, essential for social bonding and cohesion, but very little is currently known about how and why people do things to help others.

The results of the brain scan study at Oxford University can  best be understood if we begin with a chart for the March Total Solar Eclipse. In his post for the lunar month of March entitled Altruistic – Total Solar Eclipse, Nick Fiorenza wrote:

Our New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs amongst the flowing waters dispensed from the Urn of Aquarius. It also conjoins Fum al Samakah, the mouth of the primordial fish, and it lies under the auspices of Pegasus, between Homam and Markab, and over the Phoenix, a sign of renewal, rising from the ashes.

Hydor, Lambda Aquarius, a fortuitous star, lies in and guides the stream of the flowing waters of the humanitarian waterbearer. Hydor simply means water. Phi, Chi and Psi, and Omega Aquarius extend from Hydor, further dispersing the stream.

All of these stars articulate and impel the dispersion or distribution of humanitarian or altruistic resources. The stream of Aquarius is of nourishment, of giving and bestowal. These stars bring inspiration to facilitate for others the ability to move into a greater flow or involvement in life, to make it possible for others to sculpt or cultivate lives that lead to the fulfillment of their pursuits.


Notice that the eclipse along with its T-square was significantly placed straddling the horizon axis at Oxford where Dr Patricia Lockwood, the lead researcher is based. What cannot be seen in the chart is the asteroid Psyche [18ge], placed on the descendant, thereby completing a Grand Cross to the eclipse. A keyphrase for Psyche is “brain states” [1]. Adding this to Nick Fiorenza’s account on the eclipse, it is easy to see that, among other things, it is referring to brain states associated with generosity.




Finally, progressing the eclipse chart by the solar quotidian method, aligns the eclipse Grand Cross with the meridian axis on August 16, the date of the news, thereby triggering it and confirming its role in the findings of the study.
