Well it's certainly not worth a thread with this much quality in it.

It's one of those metaphysical questions that fundametally can't be answered, imo, along with the problem of free will, the problem of the universals, static vs dynamic time, and a few others (all related of course).

why is it metaphysical? it's not answered by philosophers, it should be answered by scientists. dualism started to explain those things science couldn't.

science explains everything better than the idea of the soul. except one thing which is still difficult to decipher which is the conscience of the mind's activity. by this i don't mean feeling, thought, etc. Those are all purely scientific processes, or at least completely explained by science.

Well, mine is an opinion, of course, as I made clear.

There are those who believe that the question of free will can be (or has been) "answered" by "science" as well (mostly answering: we haven't got one).... and I disagree.

The "one thing" you seem to agree that science hasn't answered is imo the crux of the whole issue, that is to say why and how does the thought processes that can (unsurprisingly) be detected in the form of brain activity give rise to something such as that thing which we call consciesness.
