The Human Mind

“The human Mind- Many times people confuse the words “mind “and “brain” and use them in an interchangeable manner which strictly speaking is not correct. The brain is a physical organ which carries out specific processes under a fixed regime of rules producing outcomes based on the data it receives from the body sensors. But the brain is not capable of determining, on its own, either the task to be performed or the purpose which will be served by such performance. This is where the concept of human Mind enters the discussion. In simple terms one could think of the Mind as being the combination of a physical entity, the brain and the entity commonly referred to as human Spirit. This Spirit is the internal energy and driving force behind one’s creativity and imagination. It enjoys every possible freedom to direct the brain’s tasks towards imagining, conceptualizing, designing and creating anything which is within the limits of “logic” and the limits of “possibility”. One will be correct in considering the Spirit to be the motivator and initiator of every single human activity, thought or imagination. Utilising the capability of the brain, the wants, desires or designs of the Spirit are processed in a logical sequence and they are transformed, if possible, into tangible and defined outcomes. It is obvious that without either the brain or the Spirit the Mind has no meaning, or substance. A brain on its own cannot produce any outcomes because it lacks the energy and the motivation which can only be provided by the Spirit. Similarly the Spirit on its own is unable to logically process any sort of data or input because it lacks the processing capability. But these two elements together form a completely functioning unit which in the final analysis provides the distinction between higher and lower forms of life, with the differentiating characteristic being that of “reasoning” and “creating”. It is important to remember that as far as the internal processes are concerned they are hidden from any outside observer and the only one aware of their existence and outcomes is the person whose Mind produced these outcomes. In turn, the Mind on its own is incapable of communicating anything to the outside world and therefore it is in need of two things; the first one is the assistance of the physical body, which is the interface between the human being and its environment; the second thing needed is a control mechanism which regulates and adjusts human behaviour so that it conforms to the the rules and requirements of the particular environment. It must be pointed out that this control mechanism acts in an advisory capacity to the Mind and it does not posses a direct link to any functions of the human body. It is generally referred to as the human Soul”
