I don't think it's a hypothesis though. The brain IS our only known

I can change my experience by moving to Canada, getting a new wife, or putting 
brandy in
my coffee.

You can't experience any of those changes without a brain. If I could
change your experience by putting brandy in my coffee then you would
have a point. I can't though. I can't change anyones experience unless
I do something that changes their brain.


The point is that any change in our experience does change our brain, otherwise we wouldn't experience it. I don't know why that should make it "the source" of our experience. Actually I could change your experience by putting brandy in your coffee; in fact I'm changing your experience right now as you read these words.
