Reply To: Theory of relativity and Citta


I watched the video. A discussion on this topic requires understanding the following post:

Near-Death Experiences (NDE): Brain Is Not the Mind

The following need to be considered:

  1. Per Buddha Dhamma, thoughts (citta) arise in the mental body (manomaya kaya or gandhabba), not in the brain.
  2. The brain is a billion times slower than the mind (cittas originate in hadaya vatthu in the manomaya kaya).
  3. The “relativistic effects” may affect the brain but not the mind.

You may want to read the links in the post to get a decent idea of the above concepts.
