In the western world mind typically equates with mental activity, the activity of the mind in the process of thought or in its power of reasoning. Traditionally, however, mind has signified not the activity of mind as such, but instead for consciousness itself, the "field" in which mental activity takes place. Interestingly, human beings can be "conscious" of the processes of thought. We can observe themselves thinking. It is this "conscious observation" which constitutes mind or the field of consciousness.

In Cartesian dualism, the conscious thinking mind is distinct from the material body; the mind is non-material. Materialists derive the mind from the physical activity of the brain. Depth psychologists point out that the conscious mind is associated with a much broader or deeper mental system, the unconscious mind. In the view of Jung, the unconscious mind is not merely individual but collective. On the hypothesis of formative causation, mental activity, conscious and unconscious, takes place within and through mental fields, which like other kinds of morphic fields contain a kind of in-built memory.

MIND is also unique in having the only male school secretary in Montreal.
