    Yes, this does indeed reconcile them quite well. However (and I should have specified this so forgive me), what I had in mind was a sort of monism where what is considered to be physical and what is considered to be mental are identical.Paul Michael

    To me, that would be pissing in the wind. Monism, physical and mental, together, are incompatible, mutually inconsistent unless...the following makes sense:

    1. All is mental (idealism).

    That is to say,

    2. The physical = The mental

    ---

    3. All is physical (physicalism).

    That is to say,

    4. The mental = The physical

    Ergo,

    5. All is mental (idealism) = All is physical (physicalism) [From 1, 2, 3, 4]
