Mind

Intro

Mind/body dualism has been a persistent problem troubling philosophy, science and religion. Today, however, new views of Mind are emerging which promise eventual resolution or elimination of the conceptual, theoretical and philosophical bases of the dilemma.

Let's begin by considering an emerging redefinition of the term, mind.

Although a conventional and widely accepted definition of mind is, in part,

the human consciousness that originates in the brain....
                --American Heritage College Dictionary,
                    3rd Edition

you will see that some amazing new ideas and developments-- in quantum physics, psychology, and metaphysics--are suggesting that

mind is a non-local phenomenon; intimately interrelated with energy/matter; established beyond the body/brain but working through them,

just as a television program originates outside but works through and interacts with the television set.

In this new defining view, mind is inseparable from energy/matter, establishing a scientific basis of wholeness, oneness, unity professed in many religious philosophies and beliefs, and providing the common ground upon which the scientific and spiritual may commune.

Worth Noting


Book: Irreducible Mind


A new (2007), hefty (800-page) seminal work has been published which will most certainly become a classic reference in the years to come. Irreducible Mind is a comprehensive review and critique of the history, theories and research of Mind, providing ample empirical evidence for the thesis "that the materialistic consensus that undergirds practically all of current mainstream psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy of mind is fundamentally flawed." (p. xiii)
