Background

A description of the experience

Sir Charles Sherrington – Man and his Nature

Mind, the anything perception can compass, goes therefore in our spatial world more ghostly than a ghost.  Invisible, intangible, it is a thing not even of outline; it is not a ‘thing’ it remains without sensual confirmation and remains forever.

Physical science … faces us with the impasse that mind per se cannot play the piano – mind per se cannot move a finger of a hand.  Then the impasse meets us.  The blank of the ‘how’ of mind’s leverage on matter.  The inconsequence staggers us.  Is it a misunderstanding?
