Awareness is not even an independent item like inert energy or the nervous system

Translation: The awareness can be transferred from one place to the other along with the inert energy and the nervous system only.

Explanation: Awareness is not even an independent item like inert energy or the nervous system. The current can be transferred from one machine to another machine. The grinding machine can also be transferred from one place to another place. But the grinding work separated from the current (inert energy) and the grinding machine cannot be transferred from one place to the other place.

If the grinding work is to be transferred from one place to the other place, you have to transfer the grinding machine which is in working condition due to the current working in the machine. Hence, the awareness can be transferred from one place to another place along with the working nervous system (the person possessing the nervous system) along with the working inert energy in it.

This makes it clear that the awareness has no status of even an independent item like inert energy and the nervous system. In such a case, what is the use of creating a great field of philosophy around it?
