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.

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?
