A Taste of Mind

4:37 Relative to this matter of mind, the only object present is the brain. We may attribute the workings of mind to the brain but in our experience mind isn’t an object, it’s an activity. We tend to assume, without much thought, that there is somehow a “mind-object” filled with “conceptual-objects.” Yet in our experience, we only find mind as activities, not objects. When we grasp the nature of mind, we see that nothing is objectively there. If mind is not an object then language certainly can’t be.

I think the mind is tzu the intellectual soul of RS . The ming distinctions of the human being are to be found in hwa chi 
Yet interesting is encounters during the period between death & a new birth (~RS) where space & time switch places; inside & outside likewise; all activity causes pain/pleasure? in the environment as reaction to the soul passing through – etc..
