Could physical process create mind?

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

Could physical process create mind?

Here we discuss whether physical process could create mind. First mind by definition is the essence of every being which experiences, decides and acts/creates. Our conclusion is that "physical process/mere motion cannot create mind".

The argument: Let's assume that it does. Mind however causes physical process. This means that a thing is creating itself which is problematic since the thing has to exist and exist not at the same point.
