Is there a name for this way of thinking? Conscious brain-body seperation, brain is controller, body is host?
I am a deep thinker, atheist and also really big on physical fitness. I am a fitness instructor and a firm believer in the saying "a sound body is a sound mind" I think thats how it goes.I explore diff ways of thinking, and came upon this way of thinking while in one of my deep thinking modes. Basically instead of thinking of the body as one entity, you seperate body and brain. Instead of "You" being you, as in your entire body being "you", actually you are your brain. "You" are your brain and your "body" is the host. Basically your viewing your brain as a parasite that uses your body as a medium to perform physical tasks. The brain is connected to the body via spinal cord and nervous system. This way of thinking has helped me go well beyond my fitness means to reach higher levels of fitness, as oppose to a viewing the body and mind as one, it really helps to seperate the two. Things gets really interesting if you have an understanding of human anatomy and physiology. I have been thinking this way for three years and I can honestly say that it has really payed off and has brought all of my fiscal and fitness goals laying in my lap, Peace. 🙂
ThankYou Jesere, that was very insightful 🙂 I will use these 2 ways of thinking interchangeably as you said. Hopefully one day I will have an "out of body" experience as you have. That sounds awesome.
