***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"?***

Couldn't it be denial on the part of the paralyzee? I mean, when my leg falls asleep to the point of temporary paralysis, no matter how much I want to move it (and often I do, like when I want to walk, for instance) no amount of willpower will help nearly as much as our good ol' friend hemoglobic gettin' down there. I might want to move it in my mind, but if my nerves are unresponsive it don't make no nevermind.

***Which also implies that if matter changes thought, then thought must necessarily be able to change matter.***

Nah. Cause and effect relationships are not always reversable (they MIGHT be, but not neccesarily)

Maybe I'm misunderstanding. After 11 hours spend hauling concrete and dealing with resident lunatics and warlords at my friendly neighborhood Home Depot, my brain has the consistency of pudding.
