There are mindless brains, for sure, but there are, probably, no brainless minds. So I am not trying to pull a definitional argument on you, but I am appealing to the empirical evidence.I don't see how you can say mind requires a brain when your definition of mind is brain.
Here are some questions for you:
- If minds do not require brains, why have we mapped cognitive faculties and other properties of the mind to physical structures of the brain?
- Why are people with a damage occipital lobe blind?
- Why can drug use cause hallucination?
