An attempt at explaining, comprehensively, the likelyhood for there to be souls, spirits, ghosts etc. of a non-physical nature. And a hint of an alternative way to think about the mind and self. For those interested in such topics. Briefly, the essay attempts to tackle the idea of mind-brain duality; the idea of a physical body and an immaterial mind, i.e. 'substance dualism'. It starts off with a brief historical account, then ventures into analysis from physics, biology and then a linguistic and conceptual look. It's a conglomeration of various arguments from philosophy of mind, squished into a /somewhat/ brief form. And with hopefully some semblance of flow and skill. :blush:

Any feedback would be great. Thank you.

Hi Mikespenard..

It's nice to extending our points of view about things around us and about ourselves. For me, I think that our hearts and minds are carrying the flowers of our societies and those flowers are watered by the beliefs, principles and ideas we got from our environments.

What about you?
