how does the self concept tie in with the brain, the soul and everything there-in
well the soul is like the foundation of your 'self' which is funneled through the brain and then projected through your self concept
if you can go into more detail there that would fantastic
The soul produces the basic emotions which are produced from a basic level of interaction, your surroundings etc. The brain takes these and filters it through your memories and references, which is in then projected through your self concept in an 'acceptable' form of allowing yourself to be perceived and the actions you undertake
what triggers emotions?
the brain when it filters what is happening in the 'now' through your memories
what about if someone is about to stab you in the face
Well i believe that to be part of the human primal instinct to recognise danger etc, so im not sure if it part of the brain or part of something more
with a sharp, long, worn and rusted pitch fork, and its about 2cm from your eye
the fear would come from within regardless of your brain
what is required to percieve the danger?
a sense of presence
which physiological parts make that sense possible?
the body and the brain
is it you thinking the thought, just the thought, or the thinker thinking the thought
the thinker thinking the thought
what is the thinker
the conciousness of the brain? i find it hard to put into words
keep hitting it
Its like a parallel existance, the thinker, and your 'self
stay rooted in physiological nature
derive your observations from what is 100% true
well the thinker is thinking and im observing what is happening if that makes sense? but then i take that as what to do and roll with it
its ok to not know something.
or to be unsure
just throwing that out there
what is the thinker
the part of my brain that takes all the processed information and decides what action i should undertake
so is it safe to say there is no 'you'?
Perhaps being you are always being told what to do by the thinker and this isnt a true projection of yourself
what is 'yourself"
basically everything you do externally
what is 'you'
An image projected by the thinker externally
what are the things that make up this projected 'you'
My interactions with others, the way i dress and feel i should look, pretty much everything on a social level, and also things like ambitions and achievements
How i perceived to deal with emotions
* i am
I think therefore I am. Is this true or not.
if you think about what the thinker is thinking, if you get my drift
if you acknowledge it
try to explaing that another way
If you acknowledge that there is a part of your brain that is doing all the decision making and influencing what it feels to be best for future events, then yes, but if you are just following the thinker you are never truly free, because you cannot truly perceive things clearly
what is 'you'
the part of the brain that observes the decision making
who is following the thinker
I mean, who is. who is following
I am because i'm not even aware of its existence
once you become aware of it you can choose to just observe your thoughts
what is 'you'?
the unencumbered part of the brain free of the burden of having to filter events through the memories
is that you, or is it as it is
I dont know how to put it into words
try not to throw something out like a blind shot
if you can't be 100% sure just say so
i am not sure
keep looking. Let me know when you get tired.
your at the peak my friend
I dont know if its a deeper level of my brain or something to do with my soul, but I feel that its a pure source of thought
