The function of the mind is to investigate and learn.
To learn in philosophical sense doesn´t only mean to cultivate the memory, or to accumulate knowledge, but to learn to think clearly and rational without illusions, to start with facts and not with beliefs and ideals.
When the thought originates from the conclusion, you learn nothing.
Merely to get information or knowledge is not to learn in philosophical sense.
To learn in philosophical sense includes love of understanding, and doing a thing for its own guilt.

The movement of time consists of two movements, which we could call the outgoing movement and the backmovement
The movement of time consists of two universal movements, which we could call the outgoing movement and the backmovement: future and past, creation and destruction.
These two movements are reflected throughout the Universe in a multiplicity of different lifecycles: they are Samsara´s wheel of up-cycles which are followed by down-cycles and vice versa (for instance life and death, success and fiasco, joy and sorrow) - all this which is lying behind the law of Karma and rebirth.
This Universe is for instance considered to be a reincarnation of a past Universe, in the same way as a human is being considered to be a reincarnation of a past existence.
The happy movement is characterized by that awareness and being go together.
Existential movement gives life colour, or it is life in its colour-richness.
It is life-giving, or it is the identity in its life-giving form.
Movement creates light in the identity, gets it to light up.
There is in it an energy, which is spreading as liveliness in the identity.
It is the flowering of the essence of Man.
The movement is so to speak a radiance of life.
It is the thinking, which has been transparent in being: self-forgetful thinking
