"Existence ... [is] a substance"? That's nonsense. I'll assume that pavan03
actually meant "consciousness [is] a substance."
If consciousness is a substance, it must have the properties of a substance -
it must occupy space, have mass, acquire and lose momentum, etc.
Even pavan03 should be able to see that this is silly.
