It is futile to reduce all mental life to functionings of the brain. This observation does not make the brain any the less mysterious, challenging, or important in our lives. It suggests only that we may find more about the brain by knowing more about how the mind penetrates it, makes the brain do what it wants, and uses it as its instrument. The brain does not know pain while all other parts of the soma do. Doesn't this alone say that the brain is only a relay to the knowing self-which then experiences pain? In this book, Gattegno examines the role of the brain, the mind, and the self in vari

The human mind appears to us in two completely different ways. On one hand, science sees the mind as the operation of the brain, the electrochemical activity in a vast network of nerve cells. But on the other hand, we each see ourselves as a conscious being, capable of thinking, feeling, and experiencing the world around us. We see the redness of a rose, smell its fragrance, and appreciate its beauty. We contemplate the meaning of life, and freely decide how to think and act. These aspects of the mind seem to entail something beyond the physical world, something that is fundamentally different

The problem with mind control is the question 'who controls the controller?'. It's an annoying little paradox. And if it's a device that's capable of mind control, it just gets worse. Who's operating it? Who programmed it? Who wrote the specs? Who's behind the company that made it? When such a device gets lost in the mail, the race is on to control the ultimate. Experience the exception!

All living organisms are like biological robots. Their physical actions, organic capabilities and senses are firmly and very narrowly limited and so programmed in the DNA. Brain, the master controller of the living system, is as susceptible to external and internal stresses as all other bodily components. The brain is also abode of the mind, and the mind is the embodiment of thoughts. The scientific observation that brain and mind die simultaneously is irrefutable. Wherein the brain the mind parks itself is a mystery. The brain is more intricate than the universe and the mind exceeds the brain

To write this book was quite a spontaneous decision. These are the things that you and everybody else have in mind, but somehow do not dare to speak them out, not because of cowardice, but probably thinking that it would not be appropriate, that it might be wrong. I have simply kept these thoughts in my mind for too long and felt that I had to share them with others before they are gone. I could not keep silent. I felt that I had to utter these words as soon as possible. I saw the truth and knew that it was simply wrong to keep it for myself. Being silent meant taking part in committing crime.
