The mind is here.

The brain is not.

Betwixt and between.

Sometimes the twain shall meet.

Sounds like metaphysical alchemy. If you just get the right mixture you can make gold--or consciousness. Sure!

I wrote that back in '15 before I became a whacky deist: I don't hold with that thinkin' any more.

Now: I'm thinkin' man is a composite of flesh & spirit, or matter & information, if you prefer. Two radically different things inextricably bound together. Either is worthless, impotent, alone.
