Ken Willber in his book named: No Boundary wrote:
“Contrary to most professional opinion, this gnawing
dissatisfaction with life is not sign of “mental illness,”
nor an indication of poor social adjustment, nor a character disorder.”
Then what is causing dissatisfaction of life that troubles
individual in a degree that shakes and paralyses the core
of individual? What is the self’s core belief’s role in

Above question only can be answered when we have clear
definition of the self and it surroundings which called

The self cannot be considering as functional one without
This means two elements involved in cycle of satisfaction
or dissatisfaction in life which are: first the existing
boundary imposed by the contact environment to the self
and second one is that self-made boundary.
Sum of environmental boundaries imposed to self are contains
sets of rules and regulations based on sociology-geography,
socioeconomic, sociopolitical, and sociology-imagination.
These rules are for governing the self within context of society.
Self-made boundaries are based: ego and superego and these
boundaries are based for protection of self and governing self
within self in two levels: internal and external self.
As result I am assuming that as If we don’t sense and feel
to need for any protection then we do not need to build or
have any boundary in regard to self and its contact environment.
The point is that none of these boundaries are real yet, are
the virtual one.
Then defining boundary of the self-will depends on the fine
line between self and its environment according into
circumstances or condition of the self within context
and contents of environment.
I cannot deny the existence of boundary between self
and contact environment yet, defining such boundary
according to the time and place has own challenges.
Since time also is man-made and illusive then boundary
will be questionable. Then again the self without any
boundary cannot be defined as such self.
That is how we define the self in two categories which are:
the physicality of the self and psychology of the self.
The physicality of the self (physiology), acknowledged
throughout the biology of the self and interesting point
is that psychology of the self also for some degree
determined by biology of the self too.
Therefore we would be unable to define clear boundary
between these two phenomena (Body and Mind).
In such theory we cannot even separate body and mind
from each other which is recently everyone using such terms.
Since contact boundary is a movement then as result I
could conclude that there is no boundary between body
and mind and existence of any boundary generated by
contact environment for the self or self-made boundary
can be consider as limitation or expansion for the self or
none existence according to self’s circumstances with
