According to what I have recently read, most scientists believe they are the same thing. Like the Frank Sinatra hit “Love and Marriage” says, “You can’t have one without the other.”
However, it seems the debate lingers. Some say the brain is our mental hardware and the mind our mental software. Some get into the metaphysical, saying the brain is physical, but the mind metaphysical, connecting the brain to the soul.
This thought came to me. The brain is physically how we think; the mind is what we think.
The trick is to get control of the process, to control what we think instead of letting the rapid random thoughts that bombard our mind control us. Anyone for meditation?
