That its non local. Not just in the sense of some aroma or vapor pervading the objects in the newtonian vision of the universe as a sort of big room, but actually as a fundamental property of the universe. If you look in the brain you will find it, if you in the big toe, you will find it, the looking itself is the finding of it. Its my personal belief, based on years on inquiry and observation of consciousness, that any sincere directed inquiry will start yielding answers about the nature of consciousness. Physics for instance.
"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.
"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one mind."http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai ... eleft.html
