Consider. Would knowing the origins of mind, explain it's attributes? Or would knowing it's attributes explain it's origin? Scientists are confounded by it's attributes, offering only veiled speculation as to its workings, while studiously ignoring the issue of it's origins. Religionists, or at least many of them, proclaim a faith in it being fashioned after it's Creator, and yet an even greater faith in why this supposed all-knowing, omni-everything Creator, fashioned such an inferior creation - it was apparently, His will. Atheists and other alleged non-religionist spiritualists, including but certainly not limited to evolutionists, postulate that the mind, just magically happened itself into existence like everything it encounters, thus apparently no otherwise rational explanation of it's attributes is needed - these also just happened.
So, do we remain with the scientists' in their self-defined ignorance? (- okay, current lack of scientific explanation sounds better.) Or do remain faithful that we don't know anything simply because we were created that way? (- okay, I'm not saying we're stupid, just that, well, we don't know very much and we don't even know how much we don't know, but at least that was His will.) Or maybe we just accept that because the existing shit just happened, then obviously more shit will continue to just happen, thus there is absolutely no need or perceived benefit in knowing how or why - it will just happen anyway.
I suspect there may be practical and very viable reasons for stepping away from this categorized thinking. Noetic sciences have opened avenues that enable us to easily prove both origins and attributes of mind, we simply need to open ours.
