What the mind looks like

Obviously, I've taken some artistic interpretation here but you get the idea. The mind is a pulsing flux of activity. The constructs we put on that flux becomes us and we take this as something real. If you relax far enough you experience something called the default network - the mind just ticking over. Spend long enough here and you will see ideas emerge from the chaos like ghosts and suddenly you are you again. Where were you when you were not there? 

These are all mind bending ideas. The best thing about experiencing the mind as a flux is that it is very relaxing and refreshing. It can lead us deeper but that's for another time. It could mean something but that is for others to debate.
