Ah yes, but what I am saying is not to do with matter, it's to do with information. The mental properties you mention are simply impossible. This isn't 'matter prejudice', but based on a relatively simple argument relating to knowledge:

Yes, to re-iterate; I'm not accusing you of matter-ism in your arguments, just that it exists. As you know, I'm familiar with your arguments on this, and find them pretty persuasive. However, I read the panpsychism article at SEP and decided it's beyond my pay grade until I've studied some more!
