What is the point of defining something that arises from physical processes as non-physical? Why is running transcendent? After all, my body is not the running, the running is something that manifests from a time-based formation of my body :tinfoil:


Only when words have no relative meaning is it a game. How long would you look in a dictionary for a word that wasn't defined by and through other words in it? One word or thought clap either.

Great, then maybe you can provide a meaningful definition of non-physical. Not holding my breath, though.

Two hands can't clap until one of them begins to move. One hand can move all it wants, but it can't clap.

Yes it can, clap your fingers against your palm. What you mean is you can't clap two hands together with only one hand, which is about as trivial a statement as any other you've made in this thread. Again, what's the point you're trying to get at? Because surely defining something that arises from physical processes as non-physical can't be it. By itself, it's completely pointless definition jockeying.
