The brain as an organ is tangible and everything that the brain does can be explained through interactions between the billions of neurons inside and outside it. The mind on the other hand is a function of our consciousness , and this is something that science struggles to explain. We don't even have a rigorous scientific definition of "consciousness", "mind" and the like. And it is for these reasons, I'm afraid, this thread might belong in the philosophy forum.

The question has been sufficiently answered here. Endless wandering wonderings have been posted in Philosophy on this question, so this thread is closed.
