      "the mind arises from activity in neural circuits [...] many of these circuits were shaped in evolution by functional requisites of the organism [...] a normal mind will happen only if those circuits contain basic representations of the organism and if they continue monitoring the states of the organism in action."
      "[The body] contributes a content that is part and parcel of the workings of the normal mind."
      The outside world, the environment, is represented in the mind through the modifications it leads to in the body. The environment is represented "by modifying the primordial representations of the body proper whenever an interaction between organism and environment takes place." [...] The mind does this because it evolved to "ensure body survival as effectively as possible"
