Philosophers, scientists, psychiatrists, and psychoanalysts are taken up with the study of the mind in relation to the body-brain as never before. This area of study is not a cohesive field of expertise but a battleground of data and ideas as well as values and egos. For those in the materialistic camp, the mind is the behavior of the brain, end of story. As one of them has said, "Mind is matter" (1). For them, all that is needed is time before the "explanatory gap" between these two domains is satisfactorily bridged and the brain mechanisms of mind phenomena are expounded. For instance, a neural mechanism has now been proposed for the mental operation known as "denial," which before had been conceptualized purely in psychological terms (2). There are many who oppose this optimism, and they, too, come from several fields of expertise (3), but the fervent and cogent arguments of the so-called mysterians have been quickly countered with arguments equally heated and convincing (4). And the battle rages on.
