Mary Shelley’s novel ‘Frankenstein’ was first published in 1818.
That info isn’t too important if you don’t know the gist of the story, but if you do know a bit about that fictional tale; it contains the brain-body connection which gives this particular THOT a Halloween theme.
Let’s start at the top… Your perception of LIFE is in your head. Meaning your brain/mind. Your THOTS (thoughts), memories, ideas, emotions, and feelings are all in your head. Your ability to control your physical body and the perception of things that happen to you are (guess where?) in your head. WE are each processing/experiencing LIFE one moment at a time as the massive collection of neural tissue in our head fire and thereby create/relay our reality. This is our ‘LIFE’.
Technically (medically), we are 'dead' when our brain is no longer firing/creating mental impulses. We need the specialized tissues of our bodies to pump our blood, digest our food, move us around from place to place, fight off invaders (germs and otherwise), and do countless other things, but it is the mental impulses from our innate intelligence and educated mind which ultimately controls/coordinates our bodies. Our body is our tool/vehicle with which we each experience the world.
So we’ve established that the brain needs the body and the body needs the brain (duh.) They cannot work independently of each other (zombie and mad-scientist references aside.) This is where the spinal cord comes in. It connects the brain and body so they can remain in constant communication for the benefit of LIFE. We don’t really even have to think too hard about it: The intelligence inside of us ALWAYS knows what we need at any given moment. Even if our 'educated' mind doesn't know, the INNATE Intelligence that formed us from two cells knows. It has been facilitating LIFE since the beginning.
