What is the nature of the mind?

The mind is not you, you are a manifestation of the mind. To be clear, there is the you, which is your chemistry, the physical you, and there is another you which is the passenger (the ego) which has some volition, but not to the degree we believe we do. The mind is manifested in a bottom-up process of sensation which is first recognized as feeling. Feeling, or affect, then posits a positive or negative valence on the object of sensation and provides a frame for the mind to interpret through reason.
