It's been reported that some people who lose the ability to move some of their limbs do not agree that they have a problem. When asked by a doctor to move the limb, they don't report being unable to do it, they simply say they don't want to. Could it be that what we experience as "the will to move a limb" is exactly the same thing doctors experience as "neurons, nerves, muscles"? That makes sense to me, and it implies that thought and matter are simply two aspects of the same thing. Which also implies that if matter changes thought, then thought must necessarily be able to change matter.

By the way, that's exactly what happens when you wish to move your arm and your arm moves. People who believe thought cannot change matter must either be dead or soft in the head.
