Monism vs. Dualism

After reading your reply, we remain a little confused over the issue

You say that you are a monist and yet in your final paragraph you
seem to suggest that there is more to the mind than just matter and
energy. Have we misinterpreted your reply?

If the mind is a function of the brain as a mind-brain identity
theorist would maintain, does the mind-body problem remain???

Our point regarding the energy-matter confusion(?) was raised to try
and assert the definitional problems which seem to occur when talking
of mind and brain.

One last point pertains to your example of the Lottery message
elating the depressive. Are you sure that material well being has
such a strong bearing on happiness?
