Does red taste green?

How about if we ask it this way:

Is consciousness a physical process? Is that a nonsensical question?

So I gather you never bothered to find a forum devoted to the questions you propose but insist on asking us?

Ah, now I understand why you never read real books.

Lazy.

You can begin your course here.

You've no excuses now.

I thought I was the one claiming there is no distinction, that mental states are brain starts.

No, I'm just surprised that some folks here want to draw a distinction between mental states and brain states.

It's curious how some folks here view their own minds, in ways that don't seem to follow a purely deterministic or physicalist picture.

Why do you doubt that?

Mate I am not a doctor and do not pretend to be. Nor do I ask questions concerning expertise of non experts. However wrong I may be this is how simple this all seems.

Because your assumption is asinine about how people can understand other people's minds better than the owner of said mind.

You've had how many people tell you that you're wrong now? Like I said earlier, you'd think if you were even close to correct about something, someone would back you up or support your claims, but no one has. It's almost as if everyone else can see your blatant ignorance but you can't.

You're equating the organ (brain) with the function (mind). As evidenced by the fact that you think neurosurgeons understand other people's minds better than they understand their own.

The arrogance in thinking you know our minds better than we do is because you don't understand the answers being given to you.

You just straw manned the fuck out of every answer you've been given.
