Which is worst than the mind-brain identity thesis, which does NOT

And the theory of mind is rather natural too, the mind is all what a

pieces, (quanta) and non sharable pieces (qualia).
I mean we can conserve one half of the mind-brain identity thesis
(brain ---> mind), but we have to abandon (mind ---> brain) for (mind
