A THEORY OF INTELLIGENCE Part Two; addendum (Identity)

Whenever I bring up the role of the brain in thought, you scream materialism. Well, welcome to the truth, the brain is used in thought. I view my soul as an immaterial representation of me, and as such when I/soul initiate thought I use the wet ions of the brain's networks to formulate the thought, but I believe the soul contains a translation mechanism that changes the material representation of thought into understandable English I recognize in my head. That same mechanism is used in NDE's and death to transmit, translate to receive telepathic thought.

Your view seems to me to represent a form of separatism: the soul dictates thought to the brain and receives from the brain sensory information, and the brain expresses thought for the soul. Do you really recognize how the brain networks have to be in play throughout the whole process, but that does not imply the brain is totally in control which would be true materialism. I/soul control the brain. Control of the process is the real issue.
