    My point would be where would these come from? It is obviously a spiritual thing.

    or rather something triggered by our sensations.

    that makes more sense and is proven.

    nothing spiritual there.

    we don't usually compare biology to psychology.
    Oh goodness. I'm of the belief that they're near inseparable. I'm no expert on either though, so perhaps someone else would be better able to explain such things. Anyway, functions of thought are functions of the brain, which communicates with itself and the body through hormones, chemicals, nerves, and all of that good stuff. Changes to the body can have a profound impact on the mind, and vice versa. (So what I mean is that on a surface level, consciousness isn't biological per se, but that's where it has it's roots imo)

    our five senses trigger our nerves - sends signals all around to our body and our brain (central nervous system and i can't remember the other one). this triggers emotions and that triggers thoughts.

    Nothing spiritual.

    just plain biology for you.

    So why is it that something that is not made of matter triggers our nerves (something that is made of matter)? What's the connection between the two?

    You are, I believe, assuming that thoughts are not made of matter, no? Thoughts are the result of neurons firing, making associations, and biological responses (such as seeing a huge snake, thinking "Holy Shit!" and feeling your body produce adrenalin). All of the above is done with the chemicals that make up your body, not magic juju.

    No?

    five senses trigger emotions
    emotions trigger thought
    thought trigger other thought
    and it goes on

    what trigger emotions i guess are hormones / chemicals
    (god damm i should have studied at school a bit more)
