The brain can be aware, aware about itself as a part of the whole movement of the mind.
But love, for instance, has only importance in the total perception of life, which is in the mind´s area, and not in the brain´s area.
So the brain can´t see the wholeness of life; the brain is a part, regardless how educated it might be. It is not the wholeness.
Only the mind can see the wholeness, and within the area of the mind is the brain.
But the brain can´t contain the mind regardless what it does.
If it doesn´t do anything there can come an insight in the wholeness, and this insight can change the brain, but insight itself is beyond the brain.
