Tree of Life in the Brain
The AiA rendering of an MRI of the brain and spinal cord shows arbor vitae in the cerebellum. The arbor vitae literally meaning the “tree of life” and is the name given to the cerebellar white matter that has a tree-like branching pattern. The white matter of the cerebellum consists of nerve fibers that transport sensory and motor information to and from the cerebellum.
Philosophically the tree needs support from earth and sky for it to survive, function, and flourish. The artistic rendering shows earth and water below and sun and sky above the tree of life in the posterior fossa.
