The brain and thought

Differentiation is found everywhere and covers virtually all aspects of our lives.  We differentiate ourselves in the race, nations, men and women, the elderly, young, hands, feet, head and internal organs, everywhere we look we see separation.

Sometimes it seems that we think this is real, that we are in fact separated, you and I and everyone else and everything else.  I know that many people can see that this is not always and everywhere so, but no doubt they are more who think that separation is a fact and even necessary.

Certainly, differentiation is a good tool for understanding the various aspects of our environment, and ourselves, but that is all it is, a tool for understanding.  If we have an understanding of one part of the body it gives us and understanding of the other parts.  But though we can separate all created things, down to the smallest unit, it equals not, everything needs to be separated, and in fact it is not so.  We are still all one and the same, and everything.

While we know this, we let as it is not true, we only need to listen to ourselves talk, you and I, my children and your, the sun and moon, winter and summer.  But even if we could combine it to one, then it is only because we feel it separated from ourselves, different factors all over, which share living on this earth.  We do not need to take the stars of heaven, the sun and the moon into account, it is just an idea of something we got from scientists, not something we can measure with our own eyes.  Right?

We are thought

geldingahnappurI find it exciting to know that I am a thought and nothing else. Your thought and mine.  We are ideas, images built up from memories, which consists of different events and reading lessons, and we are very various, depending on who makes the image, because everybody makes it consistent with himself. Of course the images are sometimes skewed and odd, since the creators do not always know us very well, as they are not necessarily around us all the time and we therefore not always in their mind, but sometimes the image is very accurate, but still nothing like our own images of us.  So you see this can be very exciting and fun to explore.
This is the topic of chapter 16 in the book What am I?

I think therefore I am – René Descartes

Steinn SteinarThe words of Descartes, I think, therefore I am grabbed my attention when I heard them first, probably because of the two words I and think.
These two words have their existence in each other, for the me to be there has to be thinking.  I am a thought.

If we look at our history, from birth and to this day, we can see that the me is really a thought, made up by the brain, from memories rooted in the experiences we have gained through various events.  Along with the knowledge we have gathered from books. Nothing more. Continue reading
