A Paradox

Consider this statement – John gave a ball to Jack. 

Now, by the above, we understand that Jack accepted it (passively).

But from the ball’s reference frame, Jack came towards the ball proactively and took/held the ball. This can be described as active. 

So the same event can be described in 2 completely different ways, depending upon the physical reference frame, with Jack as the subject. How Jack took the ball is dependent upon the physical reference frame.

Now, the ways the mind works while accepting something passively, and coming towards something actively and holding it / taking it, are clearly different. So the way the mind works is dependent upon the physical reference frame!

But from both the reference frames, ‘THE MIND’ of Jack should be and is no different.

How do you explain this?
