Perhaps the most perplexing of all things is not the brain but the mind, it’s irrelevant to all things natural. Functional or otherwise.
Yet losing it can be worst feeling ever, because letting go can be hard, letting go of yourself, you love to much of you to see it change, or to see a day that doesn’t see you.
If I told a caterpillar that his world is about to change, how would it take the news, sad, happy, perplexed at the grand scheme of things or it might just inch away without care.
I don’t know the answer to that, but the mind it’s useless to the body. It really is, when you get sick your body already knew it was sick way before you’re mind knew it, the fever you get for example is not the infection, it’s the body trying to kill whatever it is that’s trying to kill you.
Your body knows their is a cancer in you, but it takes your mind a trip to the doctor, a test and a second opinion before you’re finally convinced that you’re dying. That your mind is finally going to be lost. Panicked it tries hard hold on to it’s legacy
I say that the mind irrelevant to the body, that the body can function with out the mind, but the truth is, it’s matter of perspective. the body is irrelevant to the mind it carries.
Hear that from me a person who’s minds so detached from the vessel, it doesn’t care either way, but the mind does it care about the vessel?, did it think about the liver when it downed that last shot of vodka, did it think about the lungs during that puff of smoke, no.
The mind and the body coexist, symbiotically but do they coexist peacefully, or do they just tolerate each other like neighbour who play loud music? given the option will they leave each other behind
Of course they will!
But what is most amazing is the steps that the mind takes to stick around in the world of the living, every story, every conversation an attempt etch impact to some one to remember
The body tries it’s best to go as silently as possible, after month of being dead there is almost no trace left of it’s existence
When in fear of death it is the mind that is afraid the most, in my opinion
