    Conceptually, consciousness isn't physical.

    Science is making a lot of inroads on this, what with brain research and such. Partying too. Taking drugs and drinking alcohol alter consciousness, which should tell anyone they are intimately linked to their physical setting.

    But in the end, we still don't experience our minds as physical things. We grant thoughts and feelings a reality independent of ourselves as mere physical machines. Or, at least, that's how we talk. Even if we entertain the doubt that we are but dust constructed in a pleasing form, we still grant the obejcts of consciousness a right to exist as real exactly as they seem to us to be.

    Don't we?
