I recently read that consciousness is not in the body; the body is in consciousness.

The body is a construct the mind has created. The sum of organic tissue, blood and bones that make up “the body”. The mind, however, we can’t touch. It creates the construct of the body–a vessel–that is added to the self. Most of us think of our “self” as this thing whirling around inside us. But it is something else.

Deep stuff.
