Has consciousness emerged as the immune system for the mind [View all]

I will not elaborate on the parallels. I only point out that the mind often gets hijacked by behaviors and beliefs in much the same way as our biology gets taken control of by viruses, parasites, and disease. Also, I point out my belief that “recovery” from things like addiction and fanaticism are made possible by conscious redirection.
