I find it difficult on knowing where to begin, brain or mind. In a lecture I attended the speaker said the brain can be thought of as the hardware and the mind as the software. After much thought on this I was comfortable with the idea,it seem to fit so well but not totally. The brain as we know has physical substance,shape texture and fluid. The mind we believe is somewhere in the brain but uncertain the space or state of it's existence. We do understand through science that the mind is somewhere in the brain, as an example: if an arm is removed,leg or other parts of the body is damaged except the brain, mind continues to function, but on the other hand the brain is damged or destroyed mind ceases, thus we assume a relationship of brain and mind. Let's assume that the mind is the seat of the brain's reality (software) and the brain's physical geography the hardware or structure. There seems to be a relationship of brain developement and the mind's capacity, and a relationship of mind to the brain's capacity, however from different perspectives. Can mind exist without the physical envelope of a wet brain? Can the wet brain exist without mind? I am more or less inclined to think of brain and mind as a unit, the wet brain as the housing and the mind as it's rational reality.
