The mind-body problem is a topic debated by philosophers over centuries. With the rise of neural science, psychology, and various functional brain imaging techniques, some new solutions to this century-old problem are able to emerge based on multiple cutting-edge research. This work attempts to generate a new view on the mind-body problem by firstly incorporating spacetime diagram into the solution process. Each region of the combined spacetime diagram is then categorized by their unique features that were selected based on recent psychological and neural scientific discoveries. Finally, the potential problems solved by this perspective of the mind-body problem are discussed.
