Trepanation, or trepanning, is a procedure where sharp instruments were used to bore holes through the skull. It is the oldest surgery know to man. It was practiced as early as 10,000 B.C. & was commonly used to treat head-related illnesses both mental & physical. Trepanning was performed without anesthesia, so that the patient was awake during the procedure. Trepanning was practised well into the 18th century.

John Lennon "There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others" #peace #selflove #yoko
