Thinking through mind and brain synergistically

The mind is one matter, the brain is related to the mind, but it is another matter
The brain is a biological/electromagnetic/chemical/neuro-active entity…
The mind is no-matter, just energy (whatever that energy is that’s not relevant now).
The brain doesn’t know (and it doesn’t care) the difference between thinking through what we assimilated and thinking freely… the bio-machine cares only about the preservation of its delicate networking, flexibility and oscillations according with its electro chemical-dynamic qualities and its limits.

The mind does, when the mind thinks in total attentiveness. The mind can detect the difference between conditioned thought and free thought…

We need the brain to think. As long we live into this genetic suit; we cannot think through the mind, with no brain, that’s nonsense.

But there is a difference between thinking through the brain only, and thinking through mind and brain synergistically.

Can we realize and think about the implications inherent of this matter?

It’s relevant… massively important!

Are you thinking through your brain only and the mind as merely an automatic projection of the brain or through your own brain and your own free mind?

…Because the brain doesn’t recognize what & where a conditioning is and what is not: it merely works through psychological pictures the sum of which gets constantly decoded and translated into thoughts (most likely intellectualized), networking of thoughts, then actions…

To spend few words in regard of “pictures”:
whatever the picture is… whether psychological or real (visual)… the mental detection of the picture is not different than the decoding of a word, a symbol or a gesture:
it’s all a matter of “language” no matter if visual, phonetic, linguistic, gestural, musical, sonorous and so on. All is about cerebral images captured by the brain’s machine then almost instantaneously translated by the psyche…

An insignificant picture of a rose (for example) on the glass of a shop in a town you are not much familiar with… only that picture, for some topographic/mnemonic/triggering reasons…can remind you the whole map of that place… so to make you able to take the right street & path…

So it happens regarding “negative”, unpleasant, so often useless “mind maps” that get stimulated by other insignificant pictures (or a part of a song for example ( which is another picture))…

Each of us has experienced similarly situations as follows:
…you are facing a beautiful sunday .. shining snow on the montain… friends around… light thoughts and fresh air… there are no problem to tie you up… down to the soil of frustration …

But for some reasons… maybe a little part of the song coming from the bar… or an adesive of some symbol in that car… or a particular composition of words made and said by one of your friends… or whatever it is… it installs and triggers a rapid psychological “chain reaction” that goes and leads to the act of thinking related to the thought that maybe one month from now you are going to lose you job!!

The whole process of thinking gets immediately obscured by dense psychological clouds … isn’t it?

Then you, perhaps, even blame yourself ’cause you think, “look at me now! Rather than working and searching so to find out another job… I’m here… thoughtless… doing nothing and having fun with friends… so irrationally irresponsible I am!”

This attitude, where there is no attentiveness, has indeed the quality to sabotage the whole process of thinking and even its consequential actions…

So we said that the brain doesn’t recognize what & where a conditioning is and what & where is not : it merely works through psychological pictures the sum of which gets constantly decoded and translated into thoughts, networking of thoughts, then actions…

But the mind has the (possible, rare and so often ignored) quality to detect, to observe and erase the conditioning rooted in the brain… so to extirpate it …

Radical attentiveness, which is tangible self-inquiry, is indeed psychological extirpation
