what do you think controls us? if we control ourselves then how do we control? if our brain helps control what we think or do... then what controls that. id like for you to ask yourself that question and keep questioning yourself.. and what controls that...sooo what... then what controls that....just like a chain of questions forever. if something helps out our control then what controls that. id like to get some insight behind what you think controls controlling.

The only end to this chain of ongoing controllers is believing in ONE ultimate controller....Whether you think that it is your brain...or some other thing.

If we can control that would imply that we are liberated.
But we cannot be liberated if we are holding on to the environment(s) in an attempt to console our identity.
When the brain has control its as if we cling to the six senses (sight,sound,smell,touch,taste,intellect), we attach ourselves to our perceptions. Perhaps the environment(s) are controlling the brain which we identify as ourselves separate from existence.

We can be liberated by letting go of environment(s) and witnessing the mind.
By witnessing your thoughts your mind will by and by lose tension, and the grip of control will dissolve, naturally liberation remains in its absence. Perhaps by realizing our brain is only a (mechanical)part of our totality, we are able to control mind without discrimination.
Control and liberation exist because you choose to do something about it. Choosing makes it your distinction, doing makes it your creation!
By witnessing a spontaneous response happening in the environment, control and liberation is transcended.

Perhaps It is autonomous.
