Consciousness is not mind; it is the ground of being, the ground of both matter and mind. Matter and mind are both possibilities of consciousness. When consciousness converts theses possibilities in a (quantum) collapse event of actual experience, some of the possibilities are collapsed as physical and some as mental.
In this way, consciousness clearly is seen as the mediator of the interaction between mind and body, and there is no dualism (Goswami 2000).
... What mediates the interaction of mind and matter? Consciousness does. What maintains the parallel functioning of mind and brain? Consciousness does.
