Mind Within or Mind Without
Basically you have to decide…

Is the ‘mind' at the centre of the head with the ‘body' surrounding it?
Or, is the ‘body' at the centre of the head with the ‘mind' surrounding it?

I guess I've always assumed the ‘mind' to be at the centre, but after thinking about it recently, I'm now of the opinion that the 'body' is at the centre…

I'd love to hear what you think…

By the way, if you need more information or explanation, just ask… But I think it's pretty straight-forward…

Also, if you have a completely different take on the orientation of ‘mind' and ‘body' within the head, please submit your views…

Interesting question.
But does the mind contain our soul as well?

Anyway that aside, I actually believe that our mind which is a complex interaction of chemical and electrical information carried through the neural networks of our brain, is also contained in every cell in our bodies. Information passes backwards and forwards through the spinal chord and to all our organs including the sensory organs, therefore I think that it could be possible that our mind is not just contained in our brain in our head but in every single cell of our being.

I think mind and soul are two different things working on to different planes…
The soul is felt, as I understand, individual to different body parts… Whereas the mind tends to plot the mind as in the head, and thus against the model of the body…
I think the mind is in fact mostly limited to the brain, due to the type of neural networks and their purpose their, but I could be wrong…
The information however does pass to each area of our being, but what it does there is possibly quite different to the kind of calculation and thought-forming processes of the brain…

I guess based on those thoughts I should ask “Do the bulk of the body-controlling neural networks lie in the centre or the outer part of the brain? Or is it just not like that in regards to the way neural networks are distributed (that they are arranged in an assorted fashion in regards to that orientation)?”
If the body is in the centre, does that necessarily leave the rest, the outer part, to the mind? I would think so…

Of course in some philosophies, the heart and spinal chord are just as important as the mind. Could this be becuase we have neural networks vital to our existence in these areas of our body? I'm back to memories within the cells again. Chakras for example.
