“The Manual”: Taking Care of Your Brain/Mind


The next phase of learning what there is no manual to teach us but what we must nevertheless learn anyway is to learn to take good care of our brain and mind.

The first step in this process is to understand one simple and important fact:

The brain and the mind is NOT the same thing.

The mind is an aggregate of our human experience that we to date have no definition for, although many scientists, researchers, and ordinary humans have tried.

The brain, on the other hand, is the physical organ that controls our bodily functions – important functions such as sight, hearing, touch, taste, needs cues, pain and other “warning lights”, and communication.

The brain is so, so, so important – and yet to date it is the organ in our body that we still understand the least.
