Throughout the twentieth century and into the first decade of the twenty-first, the life sciences have increasingly been devoted to examining the traits and characteristics man shares with other animals. The trend has been toward minimizing man’s unique qualities and magnifying man’s animal nature. The theory of natural selection, coupled with sexual selection is now being stretched to explain all aspects of human behavior and psychology. This has the effect of diluting the concept of will, and ultimately, of denying the non-material aspects of human experience entirely, including the reality of mind itself. more>>>
Thank you all for your kind comments. You have enboldened me to continue along this line of thought. The more I think about it, the more I become convinced that we actually partake of Mind, rather than produce individual minds. This would account for Jung's collective unconscious and the universals with regard to language. Mathematics is a way of describing mind itself because it describes and reveals pattern. I think the differences between our minds can be explained by the differences in personality, temperment and will rather than completely different little mind bubbles cause by our genes. It's possible, why not?
