What relations have in common is that they involve at least two or more distinct terms standing with respect to one another, and any terms standing in relation must have their own intrinsic properties to constitute what stands in the relation. As Mackie (in Anderson, 1962) writes, “a quality is an intrinsic feature of a thing, it belongs to the thing itself, whereas a relation holds between two or more things” (p. 266), and while the terms of the relation must have their own intrinsic properties, they must nevertheless be logically independent from one another, in order to be related.

We possess concrete perceptual images of its two observable manifestations (the brain and subjective awareness), but the underlying entity that lies behind those perceptual images will never be directly observable. (Solms & Turnbull, 2002, p. 57, their italics; cf. Solms & Turnbull, 2011, p. The first problem concerns the supposed relation between mind and brain. While mind and brain are purportedly one and the same, Karlsson (2010) points out that Solms (2014) nevertheless treats them as distinct by claiming that brain processes generate consciousness.

To perceive this continuity between spatio-temporal complexes is to appreciate that whatever occurs, 32 The metaphysics of metapsychology occurs under conditions and is itself a condition for the occurrence of other things. This is the core of determinism. Nothing occurs without conditions, without prior events which give rise to it … The actions of human beings then, like anything else, are subject to conditions of occurrence and are themselves conditions of other occurrences. (p. g. see, for instance, Stoic philosophy—Bobzien, 1998) and the intention here is not to reiterate this debate (see, however, Berofsky, 1966).
