The materialistic claim that all mental states, all spiritual experiences, and all ideas generally originate solely in the physical brain or in physical changes of the nervous system would be correct if the term "all" were replaced by the term "some." (This would still leave unsettled the mentalistic claim--which wreaks havoc with the whole underpinning of materialism--that the body, brain, and nerve system exist as a group of states of our consciousness and that we know of no other existence of theirs.)
