Thank you for the link to the tutorial. Sometimes I fail to comment because I know I will need to do a lot of reading to get online. Other times I comment anyway and reveal my ignorance.

I have not seen discussion about possible interface theories to provide the connection between physical and mental causes. In the mechanical world, a push button changes the rotation of gears in a large machine through an electrical/mechanical interface. There seems to be some analagoy her. Has any discussion gone on to suggest an interface?
