Going through

Cut the brain in as small portions as you want, you will never find the organ of thought! Probably you will find only the material 'support' of the spirit, something like its 'crutch'. The spirit itself is
elsewhere. It is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. It emerges in the 'gaping' of simply biological realities. It is 'between'. It is 'through'. Through the brain. Through the body. Through the whole body.

Through the body, but not out of the body! What could, indeed, be the spirit without a body? Thinking does not go without tiredness nor without body expressions. Thought can make the body sick as the sick body can disturb the thought. The spir
it is physically experienced. The spiritual activity is lived and felt through the physical reality. The spirit is experienced as an incarnated spirit. The body, the whole body, is thus the instrument of the spirit. An incredibly expressive general-purpose instrument! The body vibrates in communion with the spirit. It is through the body that the spirit sings, smiles, speaks, works.

The spirit crosses the body vertically. Moved by it, the body, mediator between horizontality and verticality, tries out its 'opening' on an 'other' order. By it the body lives out its transcendence. Isn't man a strange spiritual animal? And how marvellous…

Can I be myself without a body? Can I be identified without my body? What would I be without my body? We do not have any experience of an 'I' without a body. In extreme cases I may conceive myself with an only virtual body, but this virtual body refers to my real body! My spirit is concretely where I say 'I'. The personal reality that I am is identical with the vertical repercussion of the spirit through MY 'own' body.

To separate the body and the soul concerns pagan problems. For the Judeo-Christian approach, in the Bible, man is basically and fundamentally 'one'. Man is never considered without a body, even in an other world. The problem is never one of immortality but of resurrection, and even of resurrection of the flesh, meaning new creation of the whole human reality, body and spirit.

How can you explain the mental human activity reduced to his simple material immanence? See the famous statue of Condillac. Tabula rasa in qua nihil scriptum. All you have to do is to equip this purely material statue with openings. This are the sensory organs, as well external as internal ones. Nothing enters the statue except through this openings. All what is written on the clean slate thus comes only from experience, and only from sensory experience, the only and single source of our representations.
Nihil is in intellectu quod not prius fuerit in sensu. There is nothing in the spirit that was not first in sensory organs.

You have still to explain how the statue can get 'ideas', can think and build its spiritual universe. Here remains only the materialist possibility with its recourse to the mechanism with its own presupposition.

First, that every complex reality can be totally explained starting from simple elements, here elementary sensualistic impressions. Then, that these elements combine by simple contiguity and by simple 'association'. The whole human spiritual life is thus reduced to a simple business of combinations. A miracle of the naked statue!

The spirit is not 'in', it is not either 'around'. It is 'through'. The countless efforts, tirelessly reiterated, to find for the spirit a 'seat', a 'centre', an 'organ' or a convolution of organ, all failed. Could it be different? The spirit is not an object you can dispose of. The spirit is a dynamics which crosses the human reality right through. Why seek the spirit where it cannot be and where it would be, on the side of matter, in contradiction with itself? If one found its 'place' inside the biological reality, it would surely not be the spirit.

The spirit crosses not only the bodies. The field which it crosses is broad like the spirit itself. Crossing of the particularities towards the universality. Crossing of confusion towards clearness. Crossing of subjectivity towards objectivity. Crossing of dispersion towards unity. Crossing of inconsistency towards coherence. Crossing of the complication towards simplicity. Crossing of absurdity towards sense. Crossing of indifference towards the difference…
