Another proof for existence of mind

Post by bahman »

There is experience, decision, and causation. These three things always correlate. Therefore, there is something that relates them together, the so-called mind.

The final 4 words in your post are incohesive, so I removed them in quoting you here.

Something may cause the correlation to occur, but it is not necessarily the mind. It could be the Law of Experience, Decision and Causation.

What is the Law? Is it objective or subjective? I mean is it a thing or something mental?

There’s no such law. I suppose I should have said that it could be some as yet unidentified law instead of making up a name for a non-existent law. Sorry.
