Emily, a nine-year-old, gets a pair of scissors and cuts the back of the teacher’s sweater – while she is wearing it! My student teacher bursts into tears.
“Emily”, I say, “You promised to take care of my teacher until I called again, so what was going on in your mind when you did that?”
Too late, I realize that this is a stupid question, because Emily obviously does not know what the word ‘mind’ means – either what the mind is, or where the mind is, and neither do I. She is not alone – the questions of what the mind is and where it is has baffled better brains than mine.
