“Not only can matter not account for the mind, but mind is needed to account for matter.” – Leibniz
An email reply to a friend/Follower:
“You are not your body, you are not your mind” is a mantra that came up in the last three years of my blog. Can’t remember its provenance.
Some science seems to be coming to the conclusion human evolution will certainly dump body and mind eventually. That is a Sufi tradition too. It’s certainly validated for me by my own experiences.
Humans and their minds have always been a spiritually poisonous distraction in the mystical experience of Reality. Just look at how the human mind created the diversion of religions from the purity of MER (Mystical Experience of Reality).
Our understanding of brain, mind, intellect and consciousness, especially MER, has undergone a considerable worldwide development since the days of Leibniz’s metaphysics I think.
Thanks again, Barb, you always stimulate …
