I don’t necessarily have a problem with the idea that all consciousness can be reduced to or explained by physical brain states.

But I find it absurd, the idea that matter preceded consciousness; that the first thing that existed was matter, and that it gradually built up and arranged itself in so particular a way as to create consciousness out of itself; that the blind, purposeless processes of nature somehow eventually stumbled upon this sentient, rational mind.
