We are all part of a larger complex. Our minds have a certain fluidity to them. Where does one mind end and another start? I no longer think that this should be defined in physical terms. The astonishing hypothosis says that the mind is the activity of the brain. I say the mind is the activity of memes. The brain is a conduit. An unsuspecting bystander. I think brains should be defined, but minds are more vauge. Minds overlap because they contain copies of the same memes. Uniqueness comes into play in the grey region where there are misinterpretations of memes. Even in these cases, those misinterpretations are part different "mindplexes" None is truely unique, only the combinations. The memes care not about us-who we are.
