**Writeacher**, Tuesday, May 11, 2010 at 9:22pm"nor is it at all material to say that this same and this distinct consciousness, in the cases above mentioned, is owing to the same and distinct material substances or no"

I'm not great at understanding philosophers ideas, but the first part of that seems to be indicating that consciousness is not "at all material."

It makes me think about the genes we get from each of our parents. Genes are material, right? Yet each new person (each consciousness) is different, thinks differently, etc. Is it something material that is making these immaterial elements in us?
