Eye of Horus Mystery

For some years there was interest in the shape of the Eye of Horus, when someone looks at the shape of the eye, it resembles the anatomy of the limbic system, and the details it includes could not just be a coincident, especially in a civilization count on symbolism in all of its art crafts. Eye of Horus was the most famous example, but not the only one, many researchers who are interested in neuroscience, anthropology, and methodology has found a clear connection between the Egyptian symbols and the brain anatomy. Despite of the fact that all these findings are not really based on a solid scientific explanation, but the fact of that precise resemblance in a civilization that has the mastery in medicine, anatomy and art could not be ignored [1].
