What is the mind? Is it the same as our brains, or is it something else? If so is there a relation between it and our feelings ?

I think the brain and the mind are two different things. The brain is the physical organ that is the center of our nervous system. However the mind is the thinking processes that we perform, that happens with the help of the brain, and might relate to feelings as well. 

What do you think?

The brain creates the mind, of course.

Not sure how much more there is to say.

Processes of the brain results in the creation of the mind. No brain = no mind. Supported by many things, but one thing of great importance (I think) is that of brain damage, where your mind is impaired if the brain is injured.

Well, that's why I think they are connected, that the mind work through the brain processes but its not those processes that create it. For example, reacting to external influences is one of the brain jobs (This is barely scientific language, but I'm lazy) but thinking about logical things and laws is a mind job.

But thinking about things is caused by activity in the brain. The mind is just the non-physical result of the brain's work.

But how does the reactions in the brain result in discovering a theory proof, or law?

I suppose it would just be from the activity in your brain caused by the firing off of neurons and chemicals that produce what we call a mind. Our brains are special from other animals simply because of how much better they are, which allows us to think abstractly and creatively rather than simply acting off of biological imperative. I would imagine that it would be this ability that would enable us to observe, understand, and ultimately conclude that these theories / laws are correct.

Do tell if this isn't making sense. I don't have too strong a grasp in this field.

It's fine, I'm not an expert on the field myself. nice conversation though, I'd search for this more later.

Update: 

If we looked at the nervous system in humans as reflexes to external stimulation than it's really like we have no will? But that can't be true simply because we do have the ability to make choices. And this is the most interesting part, does the mind responsible for making decisions thus free will?

Another point is our feelings. Some might argue that what we feel is basically ''chemicals in your brain'' ...But isn't feeling what entice any sort of neuronal response? Isn't it the cause of it in the first place, how does it happen then? Where is the mind fit into here?
