What is 'Mind'?

If the surrounding is observed carefully, by surrounding I mean,
everything that we perceive through our senses, which includes our own
body as well, we will find out that whatever we consider as outer world
is actually impressions in our mind. Everything that we experience, experience in our mind. No, It
does not stipulate that everything, physical, is mere illusion. It is
all together the different chapter and not included here. {The illusion concept is
contradicted by someone who says that if anyone calls physical
existence an illusion, must be beaten with a stick on his head, till his
head starts paining and bleeding.}

Here the main point to question is, What the mind actually is, which is having the impressions? What is it made up of? I want to have all
the details possible about it described by various religious texts,
science, psychologies and so on.

{Who is that
thinking within me? Who is that thinking about mind? Does mind think
about itself?...These are the possible targeted I want to have answers}.

    Sep 25 2013: For me Mind has always been very complex, I believe that mind is a receptor Just like tv who does its function the way genetically it is made from inside i.e. chemical composition. ideas, anger, creativity, emotions and attitude etc are around us no matter how much you think of behaving smart, funny, arrogant, caring but the chemical composition will ultimately bring out the real mind behaviour in front. though you may not like your this behaviour, you try to change and then you become silent.
