Hi Stephen P. King 

No, it's not just a matter of perspective,  and his philosophy is illogical.

The firewall is there to separate things that should not and can not possibly 
mix or
exhange anything between them by themselves.  Most prominently, in materialism, 
 it is the firewall between 
mind and brain. Nobody's ever been able to interface them, hence there is no 
feasible solution
mind and brain.

Hi Roger,

?? "ontological firewall" ? Could you elaborate on exactly what that means to 
you? BY Pratt, the difference between the two is just a matter of perspective, 
like the figure-ground. One cannot see both at the same time without cancelling 
both out. Pratt builds on how the mind and body have transformations that flow 
in opposite directions.

Pratt does not seem to understand that there is an ontological firewall between 
extended ?(body)
and inextended (mind) entities. As far as I know, only monadology can wipe out 
that problem.
