The Mind and the Body
The main issue is how the mind feels
separate from the body, how it imagines
itself both inside and outside of the body.
Of course the body doesn’t like this
since, it says, There is no inside or outside
there is only me. So they’re sort of at
an impasse over that very basic point.
The mind can be a real jerk but the
body keeps going the whole time anyway.
Or it doesn’t keep going, but we’re not
discussing death and even if we were,
that’s a good example of where the problem
is. The mind says, I may be able to escape
death. But I don’t think the body feels
like that. The body feels like death is a big
part of who it is. So, the body feels
underappreciated and the mind feels like
the body is a big baby for not conquering
death, but of course, the mind knows it
hasn’t conquered anything either. It’s
just a big game. The body thinks the mind
is crazy for not embracing death. And the
mind is crazy.
