In this topic I will pose philosophical questions that I hope you will think on with me....an online socratic seminar of sorts..

Question #1
Does mental and spiritual reality ultimately depend on the physical world, or is it the other way around?

IMO, the physical world we see relies heavily on what our brain perceives. There are many things that our brain registers that are simply illusions. I believe that how our brain reacts to certain things is also reflected on our past expirences and/or how we were raised. An example of this is racism. If a child grows up in a racist household, I think it is very likely that the child may become racist, although there are exceptions as always.

I agree with your point of view in almost every aspect. as it seems to me that were this not true religious would not exist in concentrations but in a more uniform mix. People tend to accept the views that they are exposed to as children and told are correct through various forms of role model guidance.

Question #2
What does it mean to be. (i.e. exist)

this question will probably involve some debate... rather than just two answers.

I believe you have no time to ponder such questions, as Link has just grabbed the smash ball.
