@ScarletMountain nearly everything youve said is, again, wrong. Distinguishing between right and wrong is of course incredibly difficult, because all knowledge rests on the unknowable, that which we cant prove merely by logical deduction and instead begins with, necessarily somatic, experience. This is why meditation as we understand it is an inherently physical practice, although its worth noting that "meditatsio" itself means to think, and that the majority of the buddhist traditions make only functional distinction between reading philosophy and focusing on sensation, points.in the body, the breath etc.
If youre inclined, try this. Sit in a stable, upright posture that can be comfortable enough for long periods of time, with your back straight, hands resting comfortably placing no strain on the shoulders, and head as if suspended by a string from the crown of the head. Focus on the sensation of alternating cool and warm in your nostrils as your breath comes and goes, or on your upper lip, or simply on the point between your eyebrows if you like. If your mind wants to wander, let it wander to physical sensations. Perhaps your back aches, or your butt is warm. If you can, soften these points of tension, in your back, brows, wherever. Continue as long as you can, but dont let yourself go nuts. Theres value in sitting w and experiencing frustration, but not w winding yourself up. This is one method of coming to know your 'self', which is necessary before you can reliably know anything else
