Inasmuch as the physical is facilitator of perception, naturally it is 
inescapable, but isn't it the difference between PERception and CONception? 
Sure, I use my ears to perceive a piece of music, but the appreciation (ie, 
conception) of it is a spiritual process that is (or at least can be) 
unrelated to physical situation. This recalls the immersion discussion a 
couple months back, and the example I used of reading a novel - the mind is 
transported to a state removed from the physical, implying that immersion 
(and virtual 'space') is a state that is somehow unrelated to physicality.
