LM: This seems to be pretty much the way I see it.   

However, we shouldn't confuse the contents of consciousness (thoughts, 
sensory images, dreams, imaginations, memories, etc.) with the actual experience of 
consciousness (i.e., awareness, will).   

The mind-memory fields hold the "contents of consciousness" that are 
processed in the brain, and makes them available for access by the zero-points of 
consciousness -- which are non local, spatially, relative to the localized body... 
In the sense that we experience pain located at the point of trauma (not in 
our mind or brain),   The mind and brain, on the other hand, are actually 
localized within and around each individual body. 

Thus, these mind-brain carriers of the contents or images of consciousness 
are also local in universal space -- as is individual self consciousness.
