Passing it on...

I heard something in the movie/documentary "What the Bleep".

How can we define in absolutes what is real when the very thing we use to perceive our World is intangible?

Or something like that, but that is the idea.

Think about that one for a bit America.

Brother, only you can decide what is or isn’t tangible in this world. You are the master of your being…..

Exactly the point. The mind or as you put it our "being" is what we use to measure and perceive our world. The mind, spirit, and/or being are all intangible.
When I say mind, I don't mean brain, that is just a lump of flesh where the some would say the mind resides. The mind can be removed from the brain. A corpse has a brain, but where is the mind?

This “lump of flesh” happens to be the control center for human consciousness. Without the Brain, you couldn’t feel, think, perceive, imagine…
Hum..., the mind is just everywhere, in us, with us, around us, on us....
It never goes away!!!!

That is the common misconception. Conciousness extends far beyond the brain. Imagine the brain as a sort of point of entry for conciousness to animate the physical.
There is substantial evidence to the contrary of your statement that we couldn't feel, think, perceive etc.
There are children that have most of their brain missing, even one whole hemisphere. Yet they were able to learn, feel, and make cognisant choices. Even the child with one hemisphere missing was able to do tasks that would have been controlled by the missing hemisphere.
The brain is a tool used by the mind, or consiousnes.
It's been proven that water has conciousness, does it have a brain?
