Hi Stephen P. King 

Mind has no properties other than being nonphysical, so no problem.

Mind is the fundamental nonphysical primitive out of which all physical things
were created and which governs them.


Dear Roger,

    That implies a subtle contradiction as the postulation of mind as primitive 
implies that its property of "being a mind" is somehow necessary and sufficient 
without any means that selects the properties from the class of all possible 
properties. This is the fundamental problem with the theory of innate 
properties. It seems to me that such thinking is just an appeal to authority 
and has no explanatory power.
