Recently, it was published the book “Electromagnetic Unification of Four Forces”(ISBN978-3-659-76798-2), compiling the progressions in physics manifested in television, made by the world people while led notably by the author and the Members in the world satellite networks from India, ZheJiang and USA. Besides these significant achievements, it has also been made many activities and achievements on neural sciences. In this article, it is relayed, via the author as the main holder of them, a new hypothesis raised by a Chinese Member of satellite group, which has also been manifested in television already, but required to be transformed into written form for scientists to read and cite. It was newly suggested that the advantage of asymmetrical handedness might correlate to its long-term cooperation with heartbeat during muscular contraction and limb movement. It is in further supported herein by the evidence in followings: (1) the developmental canalization to heart asymmetry in vertebrate evolution; (2) the decreased survival fitness of left-handedness from coronary artery disease; (3) the higher frequencies of heart irregularities in individuals of left handedness than right handedness; (4) the laterality of brain in control of heart rate variability. It is additionally speculated that the asymmetry of heart in fish without limb might likewise correlate to the long-term compatibility between the heartbeat and contralateral muscular contraction. In this regard, it is concluded that this hypothesis from the Chinese Member of satellite group may become an important solution toward understanding the advantage of both bodily and brain asymmetry.
