You haven't really understood what I have been saying so I will give you an analogy. If you listen to your heart beating then you hear the sound of the heart beat. The heart beat is happening in the heart. But if I ask you where exactly in the heart is the heartbeat you will struggle to give me a precise location. So should I now think that the heartbeat is not in the heart but is somewhere else perhaps in a mysterious thing called mind? A thing which is not a thing. That can't be located. No. I just reason that my heartbeat is a product of the functioning of my heart.

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.
