Nihilism and the Mind

Nihilism and the Mind

Nihilism here is defined as recognition that all value that seems external is actually derived from the mind. But nothing is said of the nature of the mind, of what it is, where it comes from, and how do those values enter the mind and become so solid.

Maybe prozak just wanted to be honest and only talk about what he knows, admitting there is no way, in his opinion, for man, at least in its current state, to know such things about the mind? Or does he think that the mind is merely a kind of biological machine so strong that it can relate concepts with extreme speed and intelligence, and from these concepts make more associations and even create new things, but having no fundamental reality outside the brain?
