Mind

In order to be able to see the Mind in the context of this site, see The Model of the Mind.  For more details on why it is so key to spiritual experience see How spiritual experience works.

Mind is that group of functions allocated to the aggregate of the human being as a whole as opposed to the organs of the body. The functions of mind include those of

  • the Conscious, that is reason, memory, learning, the communications system, will and so on, together with the functions of the
  • Subconscious - that is the emotions, perception and the functions of imagination and creativity; along with
  • the Composer function.

Mind is a spiritual concept whereas the brain is a physical concept.  Mind is software, brain is hardware; the brain provides a processor for the functions of the mind, but the functions themselves do not necessarily reside in the brain.
