Question: Why the shape of a heart symbol, we are so used to seeing everywhere, differs from what the real heart looks like?
Answer: Nobody knows for sure.
Smart guys with thick glasses speculate that "The Shape of My Heart" © Sting resembles:
1) Body part that is located below belly button in female and male human species.
2) Body part that is located below lowermost part of the face and above the belly button in female human species.
3) Body part that is located at the end of spinal cord in female and male human species.
Smart guys with thicker glasses argue and suggest that the origin of the heart symbol is derived from Silphium plant seed, a plant, which folks who lived in Cyrene, (7th century BC) used as a birth control pill.
