Question by Black: Meditation is witnessing your thought process and the one who is witnessing is called your consciousness?
but what if there is no separate consciousness that is witnessing arising and passing of thoughts, what if one part of brain is watching other parts of brain thinking ….there is part of brain called frontal lobe where our self awareness takes place how can any one be sure that it’s consciousness and not the frontal lobe watching thoughts taking place , maybe there is no separate consciousness but brain thinking and brain watching itself think
Answer by Don H
There is no separate consciousness, only individuated aspects of the one consciousness that seem to be separate.
Your brain is an amazing organ it controls our muscles, respiration, pulmonary function and a host of other lesser known functions, but it does not think.
Thought is a function of consciousness/mind that exists independent of anything physical. What appears to be the brain thinking in brain function imaging and other brain measuring attempts is only blood flow being measured to the part of the brain that acts as an interface between the mind and the body. This is the secondary function of the brain after regulating bodily functions. It acts as the interface, or the mind body connection.
Without it there would be no way for the nonphysical mind to exert any control over the physical body.
It is interesting that science has done its best to overlook this fact for so long. The silly idea that thought is some magical function of some mysterious electrochemical reaction is so vague as to be hilarious. There are several ways to disprove this theory beyond any shadow of a doubt.
Being nonphysical in source your mind/consciousness is in no way effected by the death of the body and loss of the mind body interface, or brain.
Love and blessings.
