I think we have a problem in that we live in a materialist society — I don't mean "everybody's a bread-head, man", I mean that we believe that the material world is the only one that's important, the only one that exists. Despite the fact that believing that requires thinking, and science can't actually explain how we think. It's the ghost in the machine, forever outside the province of science. You can't reproduce a thought in an empirical laboratory experiment, so you cannot properly talk about thought. Thought is a supernatural event which we all experience every minute of the day.
