The Mind and the Brain

This is an excellent article.

I have never before come across an article disputing the dogma that ‘mind’ is simply a synonym for ‘brain’.  That they are entirely different was well understood until the early 20th century.

This is far from being mere semantics.  It is from the conflation of these two separate concepts that psychiatry has gained their stranglehold on government funding in the field of mental health.

They have used that monopoly to treat the mind by poking around in the brain – either chemically, surgically or electrically (ECT).  Let’s not even think about their icepick through the eyeball ‘treatment’.

It is the psychiatric industry’s promotion of the confusion that the mind is the brain that has caused so much damage and brought the field of mental health into such disrespect.

Consciousness does not reside in the brain.
