Tell me something I haven't known for years. The mind is the central hub where our true selves and the 3rd material dimensional world meet. Are we then the dreamer; the dream or both?

The human brain is so awesome, I donīt understand how humanity has reached such a high level of intelligence and yet be so stupid to destroy its only home, this wonderful planet :(
