From the reptilian brain onward the cerebellum gives us balance in life. Not the kind of balance typically associated with Philosophy. An emphasis on matter over mind begs the (question) hard problem of consciousness. Let’s agree that reality lies somewhere between neutral monism (Russell and Bohm) and the Dualisms of translation.
"I would say that in my scientific and philosophical work, my main concern has been with understanding the nature of reality in general and of consciousness in particular as a coherent whole, which is never static or complete but which is an unending process of movement and unfoldment...." - David Bohm: Wholeness and the Implicate Order.
