    Metaphysics is a self delusional anadyne

    Only physical and material reality exists. Everything else is metaphysical verbiosity.

    All that exists to a subjective mind trapped somewhere are the experiences of that mind.

    We are subjective minds that seem to have a body at our control. We know the subjective and nothing else.

    We know the experience of the table. It's appearance. It's hardness. It's weight and mass. These are all experiences.

    Never is there anything but an experience.

    That there may be something objective behind some of the experiences and not others is a subjective hypothesis.

    Anandyne? I have trouble with oer than simple statements.

    Logic and reasoning is metaphysics. Thought forms used systematically.

    By saying 'We are ....' you're giving the 'mind' the status of an entity. I'm saying that the mind is just a dimension (a measurement) The brain is just a mechanical organ. Only our recursive opinion is 'mind' and that's not material or physical

    What I'm really saying, I suppose, is that 'We aren't', not that 'We are'

    Wouldn't logic and reasoning simply be the assembling of patterns?

    What are you concluding the mind is just a dimension with?

    We are encased minds.

    My mind (me) is forcing my hands to type these words to communicate with another mind.
