pulling a matching patterns into the consciousness and giving us a sense of comprehension over the word.

Words can move and be entirely physical. It depends how you measure.

Are my words moving? yes they are. Cogsci, musculature control, keyboard tapping, photons being passed like basketballs from electron to electron as they eat and throw up, one after another ’til they reach the destination on the other side of the ‘net after having passed through servers changing into magnetic media which physically moves iron filings on spinning plates, physically traveling across radio waves which are physical (we may call it energy for convenience, but energy and matter are just versions of the same thing apparently), into a computer, to a screen, physically moving photons that shoot into the receivers brain and various systems within the mind grab through chemicals squirting around in the brain and little switches made of calcium, sodium and potassium arcing like a foot to a carpet on a dry winter day, pulling a matching patterns into the consciousness and giving us a sense of comprehension over the word.

All physical.

[and I use consciousness as a physical thing, describing the machinery’s systems: whether or not we have them mapped out PROPERLY is anoher story of course and whether it’s even replicatible is another story… but nevertheless, all physical]
