The Human Mind In A Diagram
I think that you unproved assumption will fail under sufficient critical examination.
When you refer to Mind as 'human', I infer that you mean that you think that each brain in a can is busy manufacturing
Such theories of 'materialism/physicalism' have been obsolete for a long time.
Ten people, all unique Conscious Perspectives (Souls), rather than making their own thought, all perceive 'thought' from ten unique Perspectives.
To the limited Perspective, they appear to be 'different thoughts', 'self' generated, but the Heads and the Tails are merely two mutually arising
opposite Perspectives of the same Coin.
It is arrogance, vanity, to come up with some simplistic diagram of the mind, and claim universality!
More mental masturbation.
As a philosopher, I know all about 'mental masturbation'! *__-
'Thought/imagination' = ego. Vanity.
'Believing' anything that you think (or feel; feelings are thoughts) is insanity!
As Truth is ALL inclusive, I will grant you that your diagram is 'true'.!
The only problem is declaring one's 'truth' to be the only Universal 'Truth'.
So, yes, that is true, but it is ALSO True (fill in every other Perspective in the Universe!), also!
Then we have the whole Truth!
Every Perspective is unique every moment!
"For every Perspective, there is an equal and opposite Perspective!" - The First Law of Soul Dynamics
"The complete Universe (Reality/Truth/God/'Self!'/Tao/Brahman... or any feature herein...) can be completely defined/described as the synchronous
sum-total of all Perspectives!" - Book of Fudd
"The acceptance and understanding of other Perspectives furthers our acquaintance with Reality!"
"Be empty of what you know
Your clever mind just whips up
A dust storm of pride.
Allow yourself to be fooled and
peace clowns its way into your heart.
If your head would shatter in wonder
at what Reality really is,
reason’s tyranny would end and
every hair on your head would
become an oracle" - Rumi
