Exploring thoroughly new territory, and addressing questions raised by way of Searle (such because the courting among the mind and consciousness), in making a choice on features of Vedic wisdom in the human anxious procedure, its constitution and serve as, Tony Nader accurately articulates how mind task corresponds to the self-referral dynamics of the unified box of recognition.

Being either the knower and the identified, cognizance is usually the method of understanding. hence awareness has 3 traits inside its self-referral singularity—the features of knower, realizing, and known—the 3 characteristics of ‘subject’ (knower), ‘object’ (known), and the connection among the topic and item (process of knowing). anywhere there's subject-object relatedness; at any place topic is said to item; anywhere topic is experiencing item; at any place topic (knower) is understanding item, those 3 jointly are symptoms of the life of awareness.
