What is the mind?

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

What is the mind is a question I have asked, over the years, of many people including a professor of English, a bookshop owner, doctors of medicine as well as other scientifically qualified people and have received no answer, not even an attempt, from any except one: a manager, academically unqualified, who answered correctly in a matter of seconds.


About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    I was interested in this question as well. I have fit the model to dark matter. That is, My Mind is 22% of the Universe. I was and am the manager.

      Hello Erik, I make no comment on what you say but if you want the answer to the question it cannot be adequately found in isolation but in the totality of my writings (all free and available to all seekers). However, to one spiritually well advanced a search of my writings for the words “mind”, “moul”, “soul”, “thought”, “brain” etc. may be helpful. However, and this may not apply to all, I repeat what I have said before: reading things out of the full context is like eating only the bits and pieces out of a fruit cake and, thereby, missing the taste and texture of the whole cake whilst declaring the cake wholesome!
      However, life is a succession of choices 🙂

        Yes, and I am Life. That is, I am Ian Gardner and Everything. Written another way, I am every choice there is.
