Gary Lachman

“The content of reality is only the reflection of the content of our minds. . . . We receive from reality only the empty forms.”8 When neuroscientists observe the brain and its chemical reactions—the physical basis of thought—they are also observing their own thought. Consciousness is there, because it is only through consciousness that any observation can take place: we can never get at some “purely” material stuff, because any such stuff would of necessity be part of our mental world. Matter itself is an idea.”
