Im tripping balls on mushrooms right now and am pondering some shit and wanted to see what you guys think: Why do we use the term "my mind" or "my brain" ?
The Brain named itself right? We ARE the brain, its not something we own right? I can say MY hands or MY feet because they are part of me as a whole, but saying MY brain doesnt really make sense. Technically speaking, every single one of us is just a brain sitting inside a meat robot.
Dude this shit is nuts.
Psychedelics will let you see the illusion that is "language". Nothing can be described 100% accurately with the spoken/ written word. The fundamental nature of it states that words are only representations of ideas that we agree on. Nothing more.
>Technically speaking, every single one of us is just a brain sitting inside a meat robot.
Bruh, you must be the absolute dumbest human, if you just barely realized this
Man you're trying hard lmao.
Since you care so much I was in the Military and used Facebook as a way to communicate back home.
It can also be used for things besides memes if you're not a fucking idiot you know.
You're missing the point bro. I know I cant type well right now because of the visuals but I am aware this topic has been made before. I just wanted others' opinions on the topic.
You possess the body but you are not the body.
The body is a vehicle, a tool you utilize in order to have this experience we call reality/life.
Man, if you're OP, and you truly believed that >>724094946 was posted by the same person >>724094689, you're ignorant and delusional.
Ignorance and delusion is a stupid people thing, you know?
What is awake?
What is thought?
What is consciousness?
>Why do we use the term "my mind" or "my brain" ?
because our consciousness is only kept alive by our whole body as a whole
our consciousness is also affected by stimulus to the rest of our body, if I hit your hand with a hammer, you'd say I hit YOU with a hammer, because you feel it, even if I didn't hit your brain, I hit a part of you that directly sends feedback to your brain
you wouldn't say your hand isn't a part of you, but your brain is only a part of you. A brain somehow living without the rest of your body is not even close to the same experience as a whole person
Consciousness emerges from the communication between other smaller beings, and that's true to all life, wich emerges from matter. In that case, we ARE all matter, all existence, everything that came before, is now, and will be. I'm tired, I'll go to sleep.
Imagine you aren't you.
You have never been you.
"You" are just a fabrication of your environment.
Imagine this new you is alone in this world all by his lonesome self.
Now imagine every single person you have made contact with positively.
"You' are in "Them"
instead you should just Snapchat z .com and leak all your snapchat friends
You want to know the reason why?
This is something passed down due to the Christian roots of the English. We say "my mind" and "my brain" because we are NOT "the brain." Our being, in a complete sense, is the soul. The mind and body are just vehicles for your soul to operate.
According to Christian roots, at least. Whether you believe that is between you and your God(s) or lack thereof.
What is a brain without eyes, hands, feet, a mouth and tongue, etc. with which to sense the world, with which to feel and taste and observe and create reality and name and understand other things and itself? Could you then say that "you" requires all or most of these things, and that "you" are not just a brain? If the brain is then simply one piece of a whole, albeit an integral piece, why wouldn't it then be "your" brain?
animals have no names for anything. you know that feeling when you take a shit and you dont have to wipe afterward? it feels great but most people dont even have a name for that. the people who dont have a name for it, dont even remember it, it happens, they enjoy it, and its done. thats what animals experience, everything just happens, they only think in the now, no need for names.
exactly my thoughts. Sure, you could argue that you are the brain, but we typically dont think about it that way. when you say someones name, do you only imagine their brain, or do you imagine their appearance and personality?
some animals carefully plan their next movies and understand a lot more than we humans give them credit for.
for example i think most animals know what fire is. maybe they think "ouch" or they feel like running away. but thats definitely some form of identification.
but i guess what you mean. animals probably dont have names like we humans do.
