Are we forced to use only physical concepts to describe our minds and our consciousness?

  1. Pretty much because abstract concepts are poorly defined and much more subjective than physical
    There is no “science” of the abstract. It cannot be constrained by rules

  2. Since this is a political section… I will give you a political answer:
    “Hope”
    “Change”
    “Freedom”
    “Victory”
    Now do those sound like physical concepts to you?

  3. Not necessarily.
    The limitation of descriptions is language. More specifically nouns and adjectives.
    If you can create a noun (say id, or ego) and then describe it in detail allowing for the reader to grasp what it is, then it becomes a descriptor of a part of the consciousness although it is not a physical thing.

  4. i guess it is mental concepts rather than physical concepts. what are physical concepts anyway? aren’t it physical realities verbalized as a mental concept?
