The mind is bigger than our universe

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

The mind is bigger than our universe

Due to our conception of the multiverse, real or not.

Its correct that consciousness is infinite. So its got to be bigger than anything else.

Thing is he is kuku, and the mods/admin of site doesn't give a shit about wasting their bandwidth on meaningless posts, nor does any other philosophy site.

It's truly tragic how philosophy are stooped down.

..at last someone who sees reason.

He never comments his posts, his posts are all like this "Does God exist? Look forward to reading you while breaking your horns.."

If you see some of his early posts, he actually tells that he has copy/pasted some of his old threads from another forum, where he already has sufficient and fulfilling answers, but apparently he likes the attention, and posts for the discussion sake, not to get answers.

Many simple minded people around various philosophy forums doesn't comprehend the concept of relevance, and will happily run a fool's errand in answering a kuku person that doesn't comprehend the answer, nor appreciate it ..over and over ...and fucking over.

You are 1 of the rare birds that seemingly comprehend it.

The shapes we create for ourselves, from spheres to donuts and even saddles seem metaphorical in our definitions, so Mind assumes seats from these various vantage-points; Mind is what transcends it!

As far as material and abstract affairs being realized as manifestations and understandings (having any empirical and intellectual evidence for themselves), Emily Dickinson's umbrella would subsume the above, too:

"The brain is wider than the sky,
For, put them side by side,
The one the other will contain,
With ease, and you, beside."

It is my understanding that the human mind cannot completely comprehend the Universe. Humans are constantly discovering new information about the Universe. So, for now, the Universe is bigger than the human mind.

But the universe is infinite too.

If you imagine it to be a huge ball then what is behind the ball ?

Nothing. As in no physical existence at all.
The idea that there has to be something beyond, or behind, is a fallacy due to the limits of human understanding. Humans live in a world where there is always something beyond, so cannot comprehend the concept that there might be nothing beyond that which we can perceive, or imagine.

The mind and the Universe are exactly the same size.

Then why is the Universe constantly revealing new knowledge, that the mind did not know, to the mind of man. Many times this new knowledge is of something that the mind of man could not even imagine, but there it is anyhow. The mind is limited by it's imagination, but the Universe surpasses this all the time.
