The following discussion tries to make sense of the intellectual and technological obstacles that need to be overcome in order to provide a satisfactory theory about the nature and origin of mind. Two of the guests argue for conceptions of mind that transcend the physical body, and their vacuous arguments may get frustrating rather quickly, but things finally get moving when philosophers John Searle and David Chalmers get in on it. They disagree with each other, but at least they are interesting!
You want poetry? How about this:
Roses are red,If you don't think the the mind depends on the brain, see what happens when you cut the brain in half.
Violets are blue,
Skepticism about a transcendent, special self
Makes people like you go boo-hoo!
