I just strummed through my On the Origin … I did not see any table or graph (I was disappointed) And what I  have read of On the origin I don't recall a single measurement being reported. Comparisons yes.

Nitpicking.  Go through his notes if you insist.  I’m confident you will find references to quantifiable differences.

Can you give me an example of non material. Things like concepts and ideas are writ large on paper or in grey matter.

Suffering, beauty, love, gratitude, fear . . . and God

Perhaps I will, but you are confounding must be quantifiable with can be quantifiable.

No you were flat out wrong …  but could not find it in yourself to admit it.

What in god's name are you talking about? 

Do you welcome all on this site? Simple question. I hope you do welcome all. So if you didn't say that, say it now and if you did and it was missed, simply............indicate where and move on.

This is all simple stuff why do you insist on this ongoing nonsense?

Certainly biology is involved, but that is about all one can say.

Learning, cognitive and spiritual components are not excluded.

Do pain, beauty, grief, suffering cause brain chemistry and chemical reactions in the brain (and body) as well?
