Geometry of the human mind.

Do you equate it to the outer surface of your being?

Or the inner surface of the Universe?

Maybe there's no surface at all...

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

hmmm.... I used "surface" for lack of a better term...

There is a membrane, a delineation, a boundry between the Universe and your Being. This duality may be an illusion but we all experience it, so I'd like to know how people REALLY view themselves in relation to the universe around them...

When you visualize your consciousness, are you looking out at the inner surface of a hollow sphere carved out of a solid universe?
Or are you looking at the outer surface of a solid sphere suspended in a hollow universe?
Or is there equal "density" inside and outside?


Kind of an abstract concept. Here's another analogy:

As your mind grows, are you "carving out" a void from a solid or are you a solid that is expanding into a void?

Is the growth of your consiousness akin to cave formation or tree growth?

What do you see when you really see with your mind?

I have never thought of my conciousness before in a spatial sense.

That being said, I have always thought that the expansion of ones mind was more like growing roots. This may come from the idea that there is no defined boundary between the mind and the universe, only a wavy line.

i think of that barrier as like a wall. im like a seed inside a fruit the fruit being that which i am, the seed being my point of standing, what keeps me from the outer world is my body .... something like that :wink:

What?
