Try an example!
"The reason your view is different from mind is because you begin with a different premise," is an explanation, which means the difference in our views is explicable.
"All the evidence is for the brain as the seat of consciousness and the generator of the mind," explains nothing. It is simply a statement of belief.
Absolutely not. I is a hard fact. I do not care to explain anything. I merely describe the facts.
This is provable.
There is no evidence of consciousness.
If there is no evidence of it, then what the hell are you talking about?
LOL. You are just making a mockery of your own post.
There is evidence of brain activity, but there is no evidence of conscious experience itself. You can dissect a brain because it exists physically, and you can consciously perceive it and study it with instruments.
You can do far more than that you can change and modify consciousness predictably with a scalpel or with drugs.
You cannot even examine a consciousness. You cannot see it, hear it, or feel it, measure it, or weight it, or perceive it in any other way. The only consciousness you can know is your own because you are conscious. You cannot know anyone else's consciousness at all. You just have to take their word for it that they are conscious, which I believe because there would be no reason for them to lie about it.
psychologist claim to do it all the time.
DO you have the same problem with gravity? You avoided my last question.
Brain activity is not even evidence of consciousness, much less a cause of it.
Since you have no evidence of consciousness, you cannot say this.
The fact remains the brain activity is evidence of consciousness, and the cause of it.
If you continue to ignore the evidence then you are never going to understand anything.
If you knew everything that could possibly be known about the behavior of the brain, it would not even indicate the existence of consciousness, much less explain it.
Never claimed to explain anything, science describes.
If you knew all there was to know about the behavior of the brain and neurological system, from that alone the existence of consciousness could never be deduced.
Denial is useless and in your case childish.
Consciousness is evident, and ALL the multitude of evidence demands that the brain is the seat of it.
