Mind Matter
larrylark

Mind talks towards doubt, disbelief.
 1
Body carries out its duties, the perfect machine,
 2
attuned to its own needs.
 3
It can’t be placed in quarantine
 4
for the good of its health.
 5
Needs protection from impulses that wreck it by stealth.

pretty good, larry. thoughtful and helpful. the concepts hold for me -- i think mind and body are absolutely separate. but this is good as writing and any theory holder would have to accept this as part of the solution.

thanks for writing it.
