The Buddha was talking with Uttara, a young pupil of the bhramin Parasariya:
-Uttara, does Parasariya teach you how to develop your faculties?
-Yes, Master Gotama, he does teach us how to develop our faculties
-How does he do...
Assuming that the tummy is smarter than the mind, then I wonder why no one has written a book called An Investigation into the Nature of Tummy or Understanding the Tummy or How the Tummy Works or even A History of the Eastern Tummy ?
It's a very deep question ...
