Synopsis:
  • The mind is a machine
  • Thought is the physical processes of the brain
  • Perception and learning are changes in the physical structure of the brain
  • Motion is intrinsic to matter (no need for a soul)
  • Organisms are machines, but goal-directed machines
  • Anatomical correspondence and behavioral correspondence between animals and humans
  • Man is an animal
  • Animals have feelings too
  • Life arose from a primordial soup and then evolved
