I make changes in the matter of your brain and your mind changes. When your
mind changes, such as when you figure  the coffee cup should be at your
lips and not on the table the position of the matter in the coffee cup
changes. That's sounds like a pretty BAD firewall, even Microsoft can make
a better firewall than that!

The hardest part of the mind/body problem is figuring out exactly what
the mind/body
problem is and what "solving" it is supposed to mean.

God is dog spelled backward.

Science has explained a lot of things, it's true it hasn't explained
everything but it's explained a lot, so I don't understand why embracing
religion is supposed to help when RELIGION CAN'T EXPLAIN ANYTHING.  Science
can't explain everything so you want to switch to something that can't
explain anything. It's nuts.
