Re: Theory treats us as...
I would add that any hypothesis that holds that the mind is entirely seperable from the brain is in big trouble from other evidence - I would say that it is untenable.

A workable dualist theory would need to to consider the mind as interacting material and non-material elements. Which raises the possibility that the mind could evolve even if materialism is false. This is just one of the ideas Robin fails to consider.
