Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You ignore psychosomatic effects. "What do you call alternative medicine that works? - medicine"

The entire animal is a feedback system. You can't separate out the bits that are physical or metaphysical, or which is the product of which. So in one sense I agree with you - belief is part of the human (at least) system. But belief is only one small area of the total ecosystem that is called a human.

But then again I believe that consciousness is a simple product of complexity i.e. the 'experience' that emerges when different parts of the brain 'terminate' simultaneously.

And none of this in any way reduces my sense of wonder at life.

You can't be me, I'm taken
