Then again: Can conscious thought act on matter?The clay wasn't necessary. The hands moved. That's enough to illustrate the point. I totally agree. The question was asked in a classical manner, and that's a classical answer.

My brain move my hands.
My hands shape a ball made of Clay.
So the question now is, what's all the fuss? Who would deny that?
