it's a rhetorical question in some perspects, since the mind created the weapons, but the weapons can still destroy the mind (and vice versa), maybe in the future the mind wont be the most dangeous weapon, but for now i feel it is, what are your thoughts on this?

The mind is a real box of wax, isn't it ?

Where is it ?

What is it ?

Does everyone 'have one' ?

Or is it 'one big thing' which controls billions of these ant-monkey creatures on what we believe to be this planet Earth ?

You get the feeling we're just part of something's computer game ----similar to Sim Earth or something ? LOL

The Mind. Yeah. Hopefully one day, NASA will send a probe to The Mind

it does seem to be that way, maybe you are a figure of your own thoughts and aspirations, the brain/mind, or whatever you deem to call it, does make sense to be the most dangerous weapon, but if the world is all a "sim's game" aka. a simulation, there would be no such thing as weapons since you would be destroying nothing, with nothing.
it's a real twister in my oppinion.

~We are the mind~, so how can we say the mind is the most dangerous weapon?

We judge the tree by its fruit, don't we ?

If we are the mind (and I'm not disputing that)

then what does that say about the mind ?

So, considering we are all mind & capable of inventing deadly weapons, does this illustrate that we all actually submerged in self-loathing?

Well, if, as it seems, destructiveness is one of the fruits of the Mind

we're left with two apparent choices, it seems

(1) we are the mind and we are apparently quite nasty

OR

(2) we are captives to the Mind --- and IT is quite nasty

I agree that humans are nasty, violent creatures. I believe it takes less energy to invent means of destruction that come up with non-violent ways to solve a problem.

in reply to the other posts, i think that the human mind is always thinking of ways to defend the body in which it resides, but for a few idividuals their mind frame goes into the "attack is the best form of defence" mode, thats where the damage is then done.

You're right about the mind wanting to protect the flesh. The higher self will always be in survival mode. I believe we need to ask why we aren't afraid to inflict damage on others when we know that it will ricochet (sp?) thus possibly causing more harm to ourselves. Can this all be about self-fulfilling prophesis? We hate ourselves, we hate others, we hate anything that different from us. This is the type of mindset that needs to be eliminated. So, good mind vs. bad mind? We are forever fighting a war inside & in order to deal with the pain, we must bring it out into the open so we can act it out physically?

Not if, we are 'it'
We judge about what we see and think we should do something about it, but the 'it' is us the human kind which is the mind. The human mind.
So violence and disorder is not out there but in the human and the human thinks he has to defend himself against it, individual, in groups or as a country.

@ afterthought, sounds very much like the case of dr jekyll and mr hyde, don't you think? a battle between the bad and good which are chained together inside the body

Yes. Exactly.
Humans may be simply externalizing the war within. They know no other way of dealing with it.

yes but that still does not forgive the millions of lives lost.

Of course there isn't any forgiveness. We haven't learned to forgive ourselves yet for battling our evil sides. Forgiveness directly precedes peace. We aren't that evolved yet.

I'm not at all convinced that we are 'it' aka The Mind

Not convinced at all

I suspect 'The Mind' is an independent entity

and we ... ants, apes, whatever ... are receivers, basically. And are tuned to receive The Mind, as we are also subject to its dictates

We are witnesses to 'our' own actions

Except in all probability, they're not ours at all and we are merely conduits

if we are not the mind then how come we actually control it? we are not a witness to our own events, rather, we control them, maybe we are the external mind in which you speak of?
