Hi keghn, good to read you again
I guess, in old fashioned parlance, your post represents a non sequitur (IT does not follow)
but please reply as I do get lonely
Alone, alone all all alone - And yet I still use that word.

Are there only minds that define what minds are?

You and I are of separate minds.

As a mind I am the center, and all things revolve around me.

When you take the approach that you are the center, you can can make even the math to bow before you.

Look towards a geocentric model, and the stars will move as you say. But by changing the model, the math for everything changes.

Thanks for your reply.
Point by point:

I am not sure that you and I are separate minds.
I wonder if we may be parts of something which we have no conception of.

I wonder if "Center" and "revolving around" were ideas present in early self-awareness.

I agree that our individualised self-awareness dictates and defines everything.

Although, as a species, we have learned to create nuclear fission - have we really changed anything?
