I have many questions about the metaphysical..... someone told me the "mind" is metaphysical.... as in it does not exist in the ""physical world".... I do not understand their definition of metaphysical.. I mean.. does the metaphysical not bind to physical rules? Does the mind not lie in the brain, a physical object? My questions go on... such as ... how does the metaphysical "communicate" with the physical world.... does the metaphysical turn physical for a moment and goes back to being metaphysical? Or does the physical turn metaphysical, interacts with the metaphysical and then turns back into physical? Is it a dual simultaneous stage that the brain/mind takes on? Are memories so “called metaphysical”?.... if so…. How do we generate them time after time… the same with thoughts… are they ever "stored" in the physical world ? If a thought is metaphysical.. were does it lie?... in the metaphysical world? If so.. then how does our brain access this metaphysical world?? The only thing I’ve found to come close to “metaphysical”.. as that person put it.. "not existing in the physical world".. is time.. BUT to be honest.. I don’t understand time.. or whether it is or not “metaphysical” Heh.. it might be that I really don’t understand the way the brain works.. or how anything works at all.. if you could point me to good scientific sources for the way the brain handles thoughts/memories.. generates them.. etc.. that would be great.. I’m very eager to learn about this.. but please only provide reliable sources Thank you.
