Brain as a Sense Organ for Thought?

Wow! I have held this view since I was a teenager !
though I prefer to think of it as my mind instead of my brain.
Either works for me.

i too like to think of it as my mind ... not my brain.  for me the word brain refers to something that i could see and touch on its outside ... my mind, however, sounds like something that i  experience from the inside. 

re your question "where thought come from?" ... and "is mind the receiver?" i think RS starts to get into that deeply in his "The Inner Nature of Thought" chapter of "The Theory of Knowledge Implicit in Goethe's World Conception" which you recently referenced.  But i am still reading that in detail ... and will withhold comment on it here ... perhaps later in its own item.


thought bridges the gap or the duality between a thing & being in the thing for itself according to that book which is where I first remember the idea.  Such is why mathematics important.
