there is no outside us

We human beings want containers.  We want brains for our consciousness.  We want bodies for our selves.  We want to be able to reach into an aquarium and pull out just one fish, and know that that fish is completely contained in what we see of that fish, in its skin, so to speak.  What we often neglect to realize is that there is always an outside of the container that includes what is being contained.  The sun appears to be a bright ball of light in the sky and yet we on earth are as much inside the sun as the hydrogen that much of the ball of the sun is made of.  We talk so much about the brain these days because we are looking at it from outside of it.  We human beings, as well as everything, are like suns — there is no outside us.
