  •  The mind is electro-chemical processes (1+ / 0-)

    Anyone who has ever had too much alcohol to drink should understand this. Ingesting a specific chemical can seriously alter the way we perceive and act in the entire world. And this is not to mention the truly powerful drugs which can trigger hallucinations, etc.

    The fact that chemicals that people ingest regularly like alcohol and caffeine can dramatically alter brain functioning should make it more obvious to people than it is that different kinds of brain functioning going on all the time are the result of the chemicals present.

    Sadly, one of the things that triggered my own depression was the dawning realization that this was true, dualism was false, there is no mind or soul to survive death and we're all going to rot in the ground.
