Where Is My Mind

TLDR

It's not in your head. It's a field around your body.

  • Little evidence of that
  • As much as we talk about being in our heads, we don't tend to experience much inside our heads aside for the occasional ache
  • Eyes receive an image of what they look toward. The image would be upside down and backward to what is perceived, according to the western sense of optics.
  • scopaethesia
    • the feeling of being looked at
    • a widely reported phenomenon
    • studied at length by rupert-sheldrake
      • noticeable even through telescopic lens and over CCTV
    • we can detect attention directed at us, even indirectly if the attention is intended for us, from other places and across spans of time
  • Neuronal activity
    • Brainwave patterns tend to be invariant when mapping sensory experiences to the mind. Seeing, hearing, etc have recognizable brain activity patterns.
    • Variable neuronal activity patterns present and represent memory, thought, intuition, improvisation, interpretation.
