Debates of the relationship of ‘mind’ and ‘brain’.

This discussion was posted originally on the ‘Philosophy of Religion’ on Google Plus (

Bub Sahn said. “The mind is not an illusion: Deathblow to materailism? It is sometimes said by materialists that mind or conciousness is an illusion created by processes in the brain. I can doubt almost anything but not my conciousness and mind. That my mind, that is thinking this, is an illusion is just impossible. If materilism insists that mind is an illusion created by the brain isn’t that proof beyond reasonible doubt that it is wrong?”

Shanna Rocky Said. “Dualism”

BJ Avilla Replied. “I want to define it as ‘organic Non-dualism’: not separate identities of mind and brain(body). However the two always interact and communicate with each other without making separate boundaries. Thus, I would like not to distinguish the two separate entities same as we act in our real life. Do you be aware of your brain and mind separately when you act or experience something? I believe the flow of consciouness forms even being interacted with others, not only in our selves.”


About BJ Avilla

I am a pan-mythical thriller writer, mainly seeking for inter-religious communication, peace, and the view of relative truth. I am against all the perverted ideas and paradigms such as political Zionism and extreme nationalism as well as all types of colonialism, and religious and cultural elitism, which have been threatening world peace for many centuries. Thank you for visiting my blog.
