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.
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself.
But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/thai/dune/giftsheleft.html
