that have to do with the brain, why are pharmaceuticals efficient in helping and correcting mental disorders?
Are the pills not chemicals as the companies state and are instead little capsules filled with spiritual energy, and that is why they help to correct mental imbalances since mentality is spiritual?
(to help clarify)
are the pharmaceutical companies lying when they say the pills are made with chemicals, meaning, the pills really are spiritual things crammed into the capsules (like little angels and demons) to help the person taking the pill correct their soul?
The mind has a data processor called the brain. Unsurprisingly the output of that dataprocessor has an affect on the mind.
But in spite of the bombast you here from such as Daniel Dennett, the fact is that there simply is no satisfactory explanation of consciousness in terms of physical processes. What is more, it seems highly unlikely that there will ever be one, because no matter how closely you observe a physical process, you will still only be observing a physical process, and not the conscious state which may or may not accompany it.
To stand any chance at all of incorporating the mind into a scientific account of reality, there would have to be a major overhaul of science’s methods and presuppositions. Given the current paradigm’s success in other areas of investigation, I somehow don’t see that happening any time soon.
