The mind is that place where, at birth, Form, Energy, Space and Time, (the visible finite quality of the body) begins a cohabitation with Conscious, Awareness, (the invisible, infinite quality of the Spirit).
Both the Body and Spirit imprint their combined realities into electrical containers within the brain as information, data, and memory.
One might say, that the in the beginning, the Body is the Spirit’s master to “educate”
consciousness of intelligence of finite, visible, existence i.e. FESP, Nature, Life/Death, etc. At some point within development, the role’s switch and the Spirit now leads to “educate” the Body of its intelligence of infinite, invisible, existence, i.e. immortality, God, etc. Throughout life, this relationship will toggle, either by agreement or necessity. The goal of the Body is to survive, the goal of the Spirit is to transform the Finite into Infinite.
