Brief and simplified discernment to complement and support the following inspired and aspired exploration The Mind/Brain Problem and the Power of Meditative Prayer | ID the Future. And all related explorations and quests:
Since the mind belongs to the subtle body of the many sentient composite body-mind system; it is essential to integrate and explore through the subtle body-mind as part of the many sentient composite body-mind system rather than just the brain since life and existence are about wholeness process and mechanism of form-formless or in this case, many sentient composite body-mind system rather than just a part. And as a few empirical:
1.0 Individuals with almost no brains can maintain normal life
2.0 Being alive required local and non-local processes and mechanisms beyond brain and organic biologic body. Thus far, no simulation nor in vitro of synthetic biology could give rise to animated life
3.0 The brain does not function by itself, rather in conjunction with the whole body or such as heart and body-mind outer and inner senses
4.0 Diverse OBE experience indicated existence of subtle body-mind
5.0 Wholeness form-formless implied spectra-field-space-geometry-time-information are irreducible or being and becoming existential experience locally and non-locally functions as parts of sum of parts of wholeness. Therefore, is far beyond just brain
6.0 Subtle energy experience and healing phenomena indicated existence of subtle body-mind
7.0 Life existential or long term existential continuous information and memory (to be distinct from local memory such as organic biologic physical and motor memory which is no longer needed after death of organic biologic body) are stored non-locally beyond the brain and organic biologic body
8.0 Organic biological body cannot intertwined and entangled locally and non-locally without the subtle body-mind
And among others.
And as such, to inspire and encourage integrating the subtle body mind as part of the many sentient composite body-mind system; and as well as explore holistically or as parts of sum of parts of wholeness would greatly advance and accelerate such as the scientific quest, science, common and greater good, nature; epistemic and ontic, and essence and nature of being and becoming locally and non-locally in the known physical world. And beyond since after all, this is the only way to exist, experience, know, and understand the world. And thus, individual-shared-collective realization and actualization locally and non-locally in the known physical world. And beyond. And as real life empirical illustrations:
Phenomena such as spiritual emergence and spiritual emergency (,spiritual emergence - Google Search spiritual emergency - Google Search, and among many others globally) such as diverse naturalness and spiritual experience such as OBE, spirit realms, and transcendence phenomena are due to stimulus and interaction through universal process and mechanism of being and becoming locally and non-locally as parts of sum of parts of the greater whole. And as such, not knowing, have no experience, and or not understand of universal process and mechanism of being and becoming; and nature' epistemic and ontic would cause much physical and mental or body-mind problems. And therefore, causal families, communities, and societies problems, injustice, and suffering.
And as such, develop and adance nature' epistemic and ontic would inclusively solve such global existential problems and suffering. Furthermore, essential, meaningful, and purposeful inclusive ways of being and becoming would also be advanced and better through proper comprehensive and effective nurturing, development and living, practices, and experience locally and non-local in the known physical world. And beyond basing on the Greater Whole Ground of Being and Becoming. A simple way of saying is it is essential that being and becoming as part of sum of the greater whole need to be nurtured and developed as ways of life and existence since nature essences, and processes and mechanisms are endowed, embedded, and embodied in the nature of being and becoming. In addition, or all the while prevent and eliminate harm, injustice, and suffering locally and non-locally in the known physical world. And beyond.
