    Default Is mind a metaphor?

    If not, where is it in the human body?

    the mind can be attributed to how smart you are, but you're only as smart as what you've learned, and what you learn you remember. it's all memories.

    Some cultures have the 'heart' as what we call the 'mind' and I interpret it to be metaphorically speaking. If something happens and your emotion is attached to it, you are more likely to remember it. If you remember something, it is now part of your knowledge and you could think about it, act on it, etc.

    There was a link to an article I've posted in some other thread about the possibility of memory being stored in some form of aura that surrounds the body...

    As for memory, ya there is a big connection between that and intelligence. I've read that and also have seen how it works practically.





    So what part of the brain stores the mind?

    I don't believe the brain stores the mind but it may even hover above it in an aura or another form of energy. I've always equated the mind with the soul because they are unique to the individual as opposed to the body and spirit which all living things have pretty much the same body/spirit. Mind/Soul is a blueprint in how a one interprets, responds, and reacts to external influences.

    Simply put, trying to locate the Mind is like trying to locate the Soul. We get glimpses but it's more illusive then particle/wave duality.

    i know where my mind is atm. how do I get it out of the gutter?

    how do I elevate it and maintain it up there? By following the instructions that thousands of masters before me have set out? Journeymen become masters with practice right?

    I guess if you know where it is then you know how to fix it and heal it better?

    What did Killah Priest mean in that lyric of his..."they blocked our chakras" ?

    Why are the words "some of you will not be in the book of life" in the bible and who wrote that god said that?

    The mind is connected to all the chakras correct?

    Who would block our chakras on purpose to prevent us from knowing our own minds if this is true?

    Where is the mind located?

    what is going into my body to block it from corresponding with it naturally?

    who hacked our minds?

    I read some interesting conspiracy theories such as the disagreeables have a global chakra blocking grid...but its so far fetched and ridiculous....right?

    Light and sound waves affect the mind right? We listen to what nowadays on the radio and tv?

    I absorb it all and see it as it is plain and simply that we are at war with forces beyond our level of understanding and to protect yourself one must be diligent and informed.

    You must be in some type of order that makes you see it plainly and this order must have a support system. Not some selfish order where members seek to elevate themselves and leave others behind...

    When somebody breaks the 10 commandments on you...what goes through your mind?

    this is gonna be another good build V -

    i have some thoughts i want to put out right now, but i'm not in the right MIND right now to express it - i would have to change my frequency up by ignoring the hunger that these internal parasites demand be fed - sexual appetite - food/earth hunger - physical attention from others - so, so far we have the sexual organs ( a mind of it's own) - the stomach intestines ( a mind of it's own) the heart ( a mind of it's own) etc.... - i'll be back later Inshallah, to try and share what i think i know -

    i say yes, its a metaphor. its your soul. same as your "heart". all covered by your flesh, bones, and organs.

    "engineering clones but they cant zone into where the soul roams" - Rza

    "im not a man with a soul, im a soul in a man" - reverend william burke
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    w0rd Sunny.

    so we got this seven headed hydra mind with 7 more minor minds

    The brain is kind of like a HDD. The mind is the programer.

    Remember that first episode of Through the Wormhole?

    Our minds got pimp slapped hard on every level... certain people

    The mind manifests itself through electrical signals and chemical interactions within your brain.

    and don't let no religion or man or anything make you feel like you're not worthy of heavenly peace and respect - if you have any regrets in life, forgive yourself and see it as a work out that brought forth a beautiful result - discipline yourself in the best way you can with what you have and don't beat yourself up trying to live to any one elses standard

    "At Revelation 12:3, the dragon of this chapter is described as:

    a great fiery-colored dragon, with seven heads and ten horns and upon its heads seven diadems; "


    is there a connection ?

    and the signal is altered depending on what you intake - eg:

    if you spend a day watchin porn, you will have sex on your MIND

    it will drive your body/vehicle to a place where you can fulfill that sexual hunger

    it's the same with a food hunger

    hunger -

    So is the Armor of God a good enough defence for this manifesto on our minds?
