-----------------

I second that. I find it curious that people (in general) elevate the mind to a spiritual level, assuming that our thoughts and actions are decided in some meta-realm outside of physical interactions. There is no "you," but only the chemical states that give rise to a sense of self. How else could it be?
One caveat, though, is that our minds do take cues from the environment when forging themselves. Hence, talk therapy can accomplish change via a much longer process of reactive rewiring. Still, I can't rise above any limitations inherent in my brain. I *am* my brain.
