Does the mind exist as a distinct entity apart from our thoughts about it? U. G. Kiishnamurti is a disquieting skeptic and author of Mind Is A Myth and The Mystique of Enlightenment. As “mind” is a myth, he says, so is the notion of “self” The human being is like a dog chewing a dry bone. When its gums bleed, the dog may believe the bone is rich with blood. Just so, we believe the mind is real.
