Although this religious object is worthy of recognition because it helps to explain images in last day prophecies, it is truly one of the unique items of Jewish oral tradition like the tzizit and the Passover Seder steps which are based in modern science. It uses a combination of Torah laws handed down by Moses from His encounter with YHWH on Mount Sinai (1500 BC) and oral laws that the Jews claim were handed down at the same time.
However, it is not simply a Torah Science based in modern discoveries that will help us understand Bible symbols better, it is Torah Science that can stand on its own as a symbol of the Genius mind at work 3500 years ago. And not so ridiculous after all!

Torah The Torah Pattern, Design And Laws.
The Jews call it the tefillin. The Greeks call it the phylactery.
Written by Moses during the exodus around 1500 BC, he describes the laws governing the tefillin. The Jews also claim that Moses gave them instructions on how to construct the tefillin and these were handed down by tradition.
SHEMA. Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is One!
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
» Torah.These words which I am commanding you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.
» Tefillin (On the Hand). You shall bind them as a sign on your hand
» Tefillin (Between the Eyes). and they shall be as frontals between the eyes [on your forehead].
» Mezuzah. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
(Deuteronomy 6: 4-9)

Three different objects containing quotes from the law were created from this law.

Based on the Torah Science we can now conclude that Someone who knew the internal structure and function of the brain gave these instructions to Moses.

Science Neuroscience: Tefillin Brain Structure In The Torah
The tefillin is patterned after the system which monitors and controls the messages between the brain and the body through the nervous and circulatory system. Hormones secreted from the pituitary gland help control the following body processes: growth, blood pressure, water regulation and balance, temperature regulation, thyroid function, metabolism, pain relief, sleeping patterns (hiberntion, clocks), stimulation of uterine contractions during childbirth, breast milk production, and sex organ functions.

» The Tefillin Design. It is a black cube, made from calf skin in which four Torah verses that prescribe its use are written on scrolls.
Head Tefillin

» The Brain Design. Two systems represents what controls the mind and body. One is the master controller which makes decisions and gives instructions and the second is the slave or subservient and submissive controller which carries out the functions. The straps bind the controllers to the systems.

The Moral Design: A Guidance System Between The Eyes
The Torah and the brain both indicate that we have a biological guidance system located between our eyes.
God is indicating that somewhere between our eyes is the capacity to love Him deeply. If you can keep the SHEMA and obey the law and train the space of the brain that is located between the eyes, you can achieve this love.

The pituitary gland is the master gland that regulates all other endocrine glands. It is located in the front of the brain, directly between the eyes.

» The Biological Tefillin: A Bone Box Behind The Eyes (Sella Turcica).
Tefillin Brain
The pituitary is a red gland the size of a pea that is protected by a cavity in the sphenoid bone which surrounds it like a box! The bone is in the back, directly behind the eyes, near the base of the skull. The gland sits in a square or cube depression in the sphenoid called the sella turcica.

Brain Moral Guidance. Other structures in this region are related to our mental and moral decision making systems.

Arm Tefillin
Arm Tefillin
Brain The Arm Tefillin Straps (Nerves). The box is placed on the biceps of the weaker arm. The pattern of wrapping seems to follow the branching of the peripheral nerves and veins and possibly the muscles and tendons in the arm. The wrap around the middle finger appears to be the median nerve. The symbolized muscles are the ones that move the elbow, wrists and fingers.

» Controlling Actions By Controlling The Mind. One tefillin is bound to the forehead and another to the arm by straps. This suggests that the hand also has a structure that is a source of moral decision making and the capacity to learn. However, it probably means that control of the center in our brain can control what we do (work of the hand), like the straps or reins of a horse allow us to control the mighty beast.

Brain The Brain Straps: Neurotransmiter Hormonal Pathway Controllers
The straps that tie the brain are the neurotransmiters which cause the creation of hormones through the hypothalamus. It drains into the blood which target a specific organ. The blood system ties the brain to the body through hormones.
I will list only 7 neurotransmitters.

Brain The Base: Hypothalamus
The hypothalamus mimics the design of the head and hand tefillin. The anterior pituitary is like the hand tefillin and the posterior pituitary is like the head tefillin, both are connected to the nerves and blood vessels (straps). It shows how the instructions from the neurotransmitters in the brain are sent to the rest of the body through an intricate circuitry that links messages from the nerves to hormones in the body that affect organs and the immune system.
There are 5 distinct target cells where the 6 releasing hormones gain access. They are all produced in the anterior pituitary

So the hypothalamus-pituitary is seen as a door and powerful organ which consumes electrical impulses and distributes hormones via the heart-brain-lung system. It is connected to the heart because the blood vessels are also part of the system that distributes its products.
What additional information could these symbols have in explaining the pituitary-hypothalamus system.

Shin - teeth Shin - teeth Consumed
The boxes are labelled with a symbol that means to eat or consume. Each box-controller system consumes specific items needed for its function. Each strap is connected to the base under the box, circles the box and crosses over like a knot and terminates at the back. The head tefillin terminates at the base of the neck near the cerebellum and the optic nerves break up in the cerebral cortex at the rear also where the visual cortex is located.

Brain The Holodeck: A Physical Internal GPS Navigational "Place" and "Grid Cell" System
There is a compass in the design of the universe. Its value is zero. It determines orientation and the inital starting values (quantum number) and generates other values.
Parts of the brain can be a playground like a holodeck on Star Trek. In the hippocampus is a (3-D, circular or horizintal) cognitive map of a global positioning system which manages orientation. It shows how the brain creates a map to represent the space surrounding us so that can we navigate through a complex environment. In 2014 scientists received a Nobel prize in physiology discovering the system through research between 1971 and 2005.

Such a vital function cannot be left to the dictates of our will. So our autonomic system works and so does the ability of the brain to navigate.
A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps. (Proverbs 16: 9)
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3: 6)

Brain Sexuality
The genes determine our gender and sexuality in chromosome 23. While females can only determine female gender through the "XX" chromosomes, it is the male who establishes male or female gender of the child through their "XY" chromosome. Recently, the question of gender identity has been an issue as homosexuals seek to prove that their brains are irrevocably wired to orient towards same sex relationships and in the extreme some report that their brains are trapped in the wrong gender body. Your gender is not fluid.
Now evidence is showing that the amygdala plays an important role in this chemical assignment if not the biological and genetic assignment. The most important finding is that testosterone plays a more important role in brain sexuality. Sufficient testosterone on a developing male fetus produces heterosexual males. The default assignment is female if testosterone levels are low, so a female fetus lacking testosterone will develop a heterosexual female brain.
So excess testosterone may change a developing female brain into homosexuality while lack of testosterone and probably excess estrogen may steer a developing male orientation to homosexuality. This orientation plays an important role in face recognition in the amygdala because it also makes images of a potential partner more attractive based on the brain gender identification or misidentification.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12: 2)

Brain The Pineal Gland
Many spiritual literature describe the pineal gland as the "third eye" with some magical connection to the divine. Yet the Torah suggests that the pituitary gland is the most important.
If the tree of knowledge of good and evil were reflected in two glands, then the pituitary gland would represent the knowledge of good and the pineal would represent the knowledge of evil. It stimulates hormones that are released at the age of accountability which should be controlled if we were trained properly as children.
The pineal gland is not isolated from the body by the blood-brain barrier system. It has profuse blood flow, second only to the kidney. The pituitary affects the pineal gland which affects puberty and the sex hormones through melatonin. Melatonin inhibits sexual development. These hormones are the root cause of most of our uncontrollable desires. The production of melatonin by the pineal gland is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light. Therefore God helps us in the darkness (the age of sin) by suppressing desires to sin through sleep and delay of puberty.
. And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18: 3)

Brain The Heart-Brain-Lung Connection
Is there a genetic link between the heart and the mind? 40% of people who have heart surgery have depression. Depressed patients have increased blood flow to the amygdala.
For years I have noticed that weight loss pills that try to control appetite seemed to damage the heart. I thought this was strange because different pills were creating the same damage. I assumed that since one class of pills had failed the new pills would be based on a different chemical structure.
Head-Heart Tefillin

The bible uses the word "heart" to describe functions that clearly belong to the brain. For example. "the heart is desperately wicked" (Jeremiah 17: 9) and "every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil" (Genesis 6: 5). Yet when describing the breastplate as a garment that Aaron must wear "upon his heart" God was clearly speaking about the organ in the chest.
And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the Lord continually. (Exodus 28: 29)
Yet, as he interceded for them as high priest their names were on his mind.

Brain The Sign Of The Tefillin: Righteousness By Faith
The four texts are appropriate for the stages of moral maturity from birth to maturity. All four have one thing in common, no leaven or sin must be found among them and they must always have the sign on their hand and forehead ("between the eyes"). This is counted as righteousness by faith because it meets the definition of the function and purpose of the tefillin.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10: 17)
The Tefillin has the Word of God woven in our hearts through instruction and hearing in four sections. Every step has the same sign of faith (trust) and complete submission to God

  1. Body: (Our New Birth) Exodus 13: 1-10. A good foundation begins with a healthy child, free of drugs and the effects of malnutrition and poisonous influences. Even in the womb a baby responds positively to classical music and the reassuring sound of the voice of the parents. If Jesus was slain "at the foundation of the world", then our righteousness began at the creation and it must have started in the month of Abib before the creation. Our example of righteousness began in the month of Abib (Nisan) with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, when the firstborn is redeemed. It was then that the leaven of sin was removed and we began an exodus out of slavery to sin.
  2. Mind: (After Birth) Exodus 13: 11-16. The process begins from birth by teaching the mind. The firstborn is redeemed from slavery and must be broken if they are stubborn. The firstborn, coming out of bondage to sin and slavery by a strong hand, no leaven (sin), a sign on the hand and "between the eyes"
  3. Emotions: (Growing Up) Deuteronomy 6: 4-9. Love God. Hear, teach, write on your hand (work) and forehead (mind) and on your house (entire body) all that pleases God. Growing up properly and being trained as children is required for our maturity. We must master our feelings and emotions with knowledge from God.
    Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22: 6)

    The education agenda of the United Nations through UNESCO and the World Core Curriculum has started earlier than seven years old to try to rid the children of the influence of their parents towards religion, moral absolutes and patriotism (loyalty) which they deem as negative infections.
  4. Decision-Making: (Wisdom And Maturity) Deuteronomy 11: 13-31. Rewarded for clinging to God. By the time we grow up the love circuit should be towards God, the hate circuit towards evil with disgust. If so, we will be rewarded. If not, we will be rejected because we have chosen to separate. If you obey the previous law then God will send rain and you shall reap the fruit or the rewards.

Baptism is a symbolic picture of our salvation. It shows that we will be washed and renewed (regenerated) by the Holy Spirit by writing the law in our heart. As a simple picture, it shows what is being done to all who can understand. However, there is a model that is a detailed, scientific explanation.
The tefillin is a scientific picture of how the covenant will be internally applied.
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. (Jeremiah 31: 33-34)
Four texts are witten on scrolls in each Tefillin. All four are written on one scroll in the hand tefillin, which only has one compartment. The head tefillin has four compartments, each with one scroll which has only one text. The texts are written in a particular order.
Are they related to how we can control our brain? They are written in this order that appears to be from birth to maturity.
Here is the key on how to interpret the symbols.

Protecting The Righteous. How does God protect us?

A Risky or Brilliant Design?
This is a design based on free choice. All these emotions can be legitimate in certain situations but they must be under the control of the will and not compromised by external chemicals like drugs, alcohol, sounds or video images that bypass reason. When we see how easily people are addicted and how easily they are attracted to all things evil and sinful, one wonders why God designed the system to be so easily sabotaged. An addiction in one area predisposes one to fall victim to other addictions. The sad truth is that people are more drawn to evil desires than the good.

» Immorality. Alcohol, drugs, intemperance, carbon monoxide and music that extracts the wrong emotional response will undermine this mastery of our mind and body. High fat, high protein, stimulants, nicotine all increase dopamine. Smoking increases the amount of carbon monoxide and will damage the putamen leading to a loss of initiative, engaging in repetitive actions with no loss of cognitive abilities. Smoky and crowded, bars and nightclubs are not the domain of the child of God. Damage to the putamen accounts for the mindless, dangerous and repetitive bad behavior of people.

A Brilliant Design! Everything in moderation and everything appropriate in its own time. All of these emotions can be genuine without breaking the commandments. Under the right circumstances and in the right context all these emotions are positive and all of them are gifts. The developing science of epigenetics shows that we can affect our children for good.

Genetics: A Strong Defence By Design. God has a backup plan for repairing genes. Normally, we inherit two working nuclear genes from both parents but only one working imprinted epigene which is removed and reprogrammed back to factory settings (nuclear) everytime the permanent set of sperm or egg is created in the womb.

» The Good News. The shocking fact is that it is just as easy to train your mind in the opposite direction. Believe it or not, the body wants the moral alternative and it will adjust unbelievably quickly. The interconnection between all desires means that we should be able to rein in an out of control desire with desires that we still master. So reasonable fasting with Bible study and meditating on the Word of God is key to controlling the desires and spiritual appetite.
Connect with God. He is your best friend. You are never alone. You are greatly loved.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4: 8)

» Mirror Image? Why did God institute this silly procedure of two boxes?
It follows the basic design of the entire universe. Every necessary system is made up of mirror image twins in union. The placement of the tefillin opposite the gland and bone forms a mirror image design that is also modeled in DNA replication and the matter-antimatter construction. Therefore, the work of this system is to support the genetic recreation of the spiritual side of humans. It is a teacher. Our DNA is also a teacher.
By wearing the tefillin, we are mirroring what God is doing for us. By following its instructions, we are voluntarily accomplishing what God wants us to do so that He can complete our transformation.

The History Of The Brain Science
According to this history, people at the time of Moses did not have the knowledge to deduce the structure and function of the pituitary gland. An enlarged pituitary might have given a clue to odd behavior, but this animal would never be eligible for sacrifice. Even if they looked in the brain of a sacrifice animal there is no evidence that they could have made such a connection.

Jesus The Messianic Prophecy
The purpose of the Messiah was to succeed where we failed using the same systems to which we have access. He was diligent about training His brain to love the things of God. In doing so He fulfilled God's oath and the covenant.

Pink Elephant Pink Elephant. The Torah definitely teaches that "between the eyes" is a box that controls love for Him and moral decisions. Knowledge about these organs and their function is still ongoing. They were only discovered in the last century. The Orthodox Jews still wear the tefillin although it is one of the many commands that they do without fully understanding why God had commanded it. This awesome biological knowledge of God would have been lost without the faithful obedience of the Orthodox Jews.
So wearing the tefillin and the tallit is not an embarrasing fashion statement imposed from heaven that we should quietly abandon. It is the clever three dimensional learning device of a clever God that models the victorious promise of the new covenant and still teaches us that YHWH is the most awesome!

All Wisdom And Knowledge Is From God. How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded? And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing and fools hate knowledge? Turn to my reproof, behold I will pour out My Spirit on you; I will make My words known to you. (Proverbs 1: 22-23) Time: 90 Minutes
