(1) Andrew Buchan :

Why is it that ?behaviour? itself is an internal state, however we have to observe behaviour in order to infer existence of it in the first instance? Nevertheless, is the mind a product of the physical body, and if so, are behaviours resultant of this? My friends regard behaviour as physical but behaviour does not occur spontaneously and therefore has to be triggered by an internal state initially

It would be appreciated if you could help me answer this question as it has been playing on my mind for the last few days. Thank you.
