While I may be a skeptic regarding mediums in general, I do not dismiss the spiritual realm. After all, philosophers and laymen have tried for thousands of years to understand the "mind/body" problem. That is, how is it possible for consciousness and self-awareness to arise from a physical body? They two realms seem to be completely different, yet there it is.

Well consciousness and self-awareness do not arise from a physical body, there exists no credible scientific evidence to suggest it does, hence why it is only philosophers and laymen who are still looking into it.
