It’s in the brain…?

Look at the skulls of the people around you, there’s all kinds of crazy stuff going on inside their brains. What’s with that, anyhow? That’s just wild if you ask me. So many faces, and behind those faces a massive conglomeration of nerves processing (as I learnt from Jeremy) more than 144,000 thoughts in a single day. Is that where we reside? Behind our faces, in an organ, with little synapses going off all of the time?

It seems to me that there is something more at work than the firing electrical charges of our minds. Where do our minds exists anyhow? I just love the description in the book Flatland, about how the residents of Flatland were 2D, and they couldn’t see what was inside of one another. But then a strange shape appeared and disappeared among them and they began to argue about what it was and where it came from. Suppose there is some ‘shape’ beyond ours here in the 3rd dimension? What would it look like, can it see inside of us? Sounds suspiciously like a description of God to me.

Just thinking and rambling in the middle of the day.
