"The Enchanted Loom" is a metaphor for the human brain, as described by neuroscientist Charles Sherrington in a passage from his 1942 book, 'Man on his Nature', in which he describes what happens in the cerebral cortex during arousal from sleep. In his own words: "The great topmost sheet of the mass, that where hardly a light had twinkled or moved, becomes now a sparkling field of rhythmic flashing points with trains of traveling sparks hurrying hither and thither. The brain is waking and with it the mind is returning. It is as if the Milky Way entered upon some cosmic dance. Swiftly the head mass becomes an enchanted loom where millions of flashing shuttles weave a dissolving pattern, always a meaningful pattern though never an abiding one; a shifting harmony of sub-patterns. The "loom" he refers to was undoubtedly meant to be a Jacquard loom, used for weaving fabric into complex patterns.

In 1937 the great neuroscientist Sir Charles Scott Sherrington of the University of Oxford laid out what would become a classic description of the brain at work.He imagined points of light signaling the activity of nerve cells and their connections.During deep sleep, he proposed, only a few remote parts of the brain would twinkle, giving the organ the appearance of a starry night sky.But at awakening, "it is as if the Milky Way entered upon some cosmic dance," Sherrington reflected."Swiftly the head-mass becomes an enchanted loom where millions of flashing shuttles weave a dissolving pattern, always a meaningful pattern though never an abiding one; a shifting harmony of subpatterns."
Although Sherrington probably did not realize it at the time, his poetic metaphor contained an important scientific idea: that of the brain revealing its inner workings optically.

But most biologists would be more likely to agree with the great neuroscientist, Charles Sherrington, who wrote, ``one feels sometimes that Descartes must never had a dog.'' In one way or another, when the cost isn't too high, scientists have been known to give in to fellow-feeling.
