I'd like to go with "seperate from body" as it suggests a "spirit"....but, I am leaning towards the mind is a product of the electricial activity in the brain and is a evolutionary tool that helps keep our species alive.
it's all connected and when our western dr's figure that out, there will be better diagnosis' and less 'mental illness's'. A hormone imbalance can make a woman pretty nutty and depressed, for instance!
did you know, btw, that our organs are simply held in place by 'life force' and fall down when dead? they have no shelves...just life force and our unhealthy eating causes so much prolapsed stomachs that it's considered normal!
I saw this guy who experienced some kind of spiritual kundalini or something, he said its seperate somehow when he said it I knew without a doubt it was true. not talking about the brain but consciousness.
