Is Your Mind Made of Many Elements?

I heard that some says everything is impermanent because everything is made of many elements. So is your mind made of many elements.
If so what are the elements?

vertical line After a rain the sky clears to reveal a bright full moon. In every puddle and every beaded drop there is a reflection of moon. If I was standing in front of a mirror and you entered the room behind me I could say "I see you.". Pointing at nothingness and asking for a breakdown of nothingness is a paradox. How does counting every grain in a sandbox clarify the sandbox? The breakdown into quantifiable components is the persuit of linear mind. A ground of being is sought in this action, an attachment.
