Abstract: 

This article presents a new paradigm that claims the existence of the psyche in the human being from the moment of conception. The author invites the reader to reconsider the outlook adopted up to now, which considers the brain the only unit of reference useful for understanding the mind and its functioning. A global vision of man cannot overlook the existence of the psyche, seen also as the soul. The human being could not live without it. In fact, the psyche appears to be present and functioning with its individual character from the moment of conception. In order to understand this new perspective, we need to look at not only what happens outside us, but also, and above all, what happens inside us, in our interiority.
