An interesting little article for those interested:
"Most people have no formal training in philosophy, none whatsoever, yet we all have core philosophical beliefs. These tenets, even if we don't articulate or label them, shape our creeds and faith and guide our judgments and actions.
Take dualism, for example. Few would identify themselves as dualists if questioned, yet many profess beliefs in heaven, in reincarnation, in supernatural spirits, and so forth. These are all dualist beliefs. That is, they all assume that the mind and body are different entities -- and that one can exist without the other."
We don't have bodies; we are bodies.
-- Christopher Hitchens
