1. Your personal evidence for mind is stronger than it is for matter, so you ought to conclude that mind is at least as real as matter.

4. If the ghost is in the machine, and if some ghosts exist without their own machine (see 2. above), then it may be that at the death of the machine, the ghost continues to exist. As a ghost without the machine.
