    I love this thread, I personally chose "dualist", but was indecisive. I just can't deny the fact that my human eyes and mind are narrowed in scope only allowing me to see the visible dimensions (implying there might be other things visible to another "eye"). I hope I make sense.

    Not really no.

    Yeah I get it, I mean I could argue the particulars but hey, that's just me.
    In the case of non interaction between types of expression of energy, that has already been documented and is what seem to be going on at a larger scale between 'our matter' and dark matter for example. Interaction between wave functions of matter create the discrete aspect of the universe we instinctively consider to be 'the only one' because of evolutionary imperatives. But you don't need a dualistic system to explain different sets of rules as long as they were connected at one time, so, causally continuous: then they're part of the same universe. And explaining it via a dual system is just adding useless complexity, generally for ideological purposes. <See occam's razor>

    Also if there's no interaction, then its just irrelevant, the one doesn't exist to the other as existence comes from interference. -descartes dualism is lame that way btw-

    I think meta cognition simply biases us toward a natural distinction between the mind and the body, so if a guy comes in and give a theory of it, we want to believe it, no matter how bad the arguments, and 'believe me', study some Descartes for example.
    I'm not saying the guy wasn't a math wizz, but as a philosopher he was simply idiotic to the point of comedy.

    The universe is a fantastically strange place, and I hold no delusion of holding the secrets to its inner workings, but I have a strong hunch that all is material at its core.

    Neither, the way they've been worded.

    My main beef being the unbelievably inept assumption that souls, spirits, and the like can't exist under materialism, or that higher realms of existence aren't physical.

    They're the same thing; most people just don't seem to realize it. Matter itself is dualistic in nature, creating all sorts of veiled 'metaphysical' realms that really are physical.
