"By contrary, the intellect deals with abstractions, concepts, notions, or imageless thoughts and ideas marked by universality."
The list above is a list of synonyms, none of which are defined properly anywhere. Intellect, reason, mind, thinking. spirit and soul are similar floating categories. But there is no such thing as a synonym. What you have is a list of words that can be replaced by one another, with the consequence of pulling the related connotations in focus as well.
"mind is separable, impassible, unmixed....this alone is immaterial and eternal". It is quite possible that the human brain is the material organ of perception, memory, and imagination ONLY. The mechanims of intelligence/intellect/mind designed as more intricate, being able to exist and operate apart from the piece of matter like the brain in humans or animals."
Any evidence to support this last sentence?
Why mechanisms? More intricate in what sense? How can you separate existence and operation as properties from any object?
