Part IThe (human) Self (Mind and Representation) is outside of biology while being contained by biology.
The Self is a creation of mind as receptive organ.
The Self is an individual in space and time--local and family "geography".
The Self as Ego requires defining characteristics. The "I am" is not enough. The "what" is necessary.
The Self lives a fiction.
The Brain works biologically.
The Brain acts of necessity. As the heart beats the brain sends and receives electrical "pulses".
The Brain interprets these first biologically--needing X to continue to exist, to not be dead.
The Brain may USE the Mind as necessary.
Part IIIHowever, Mind does not understand this.
Mind desires to be out of time and hence out of body, out of brain...to be eternal.
This is a "fiction" of living (not dying).
Mind creates mythologies.
Our history, our literature, our science is a creation of MIND outside of time.
Mind is forever struggling against the truth of the organism...it is very basically, food...humus.
