False externalism

The mind is in the body. It does everything from within this body. To damage the specific part of the body called the brain is to damage the ability to think and the faculty of mind. Thus the mind is internal to the “external” reality. That is to say, what we consider as external is really a false conceptualisation. The mind is an emergent property of a living body. To be without life is to be without the property of mind. A body is a body, with or without a mind. A mind does not exist without a body. There has never been an instance of a bodiless mind, apart from the term and concept.
