Atheists: Is consciousness itself the only metaphysical object in existence?

  1. You don’t really make much sense. But a lot of people who think they are clever have that problem. Consciousness is a physical process, measured in brainwaves etc. The ‘metaphysical objects’ that do not have substance is unicorns, fairies, and god.

  2. Consciousness is neither an object (it’s a process) nor metaphysical (it’s mathematical, just very scary-biscuits mathematics).
    Why don’t you try opening your bedroom curtains?

  3. No one can answer that question definitively because currently the nature of consciousness is not fully understood. On the other hand, we know it is not exclusively metaphysical because consciousness is known to be affected by physical things like trauma, unbalanced brain chemistry, alcohol, drugs, cold, heat, fatigue, strong electromagnetic fields, ultrasonic vibrations and presumably death. It sure seems to be physically interactive for a “metaphysical” object…
