  When I say this--

  Do you **get this?**

  Do you understand what I'm talking about?

  You realize that I'm not talking about something
  that can be measured, or calculated, or timed,
  or put under a microscope, right?

  If you don't realize that, we're not talking the
  same language here.

  I'm not talking about a brain in the hand, (or in a head,)
  I'm talking about what it is like to *be* a brain.

  That's the difference here.
  (And it is a material/relevant difference,
   and it is a material/real difference.)
