Let me propose an argument for comparison: If acts derive from judgment judgment is embodied in the acts. Acts derive from judgment. Therefore judgment is embodied in the acts. This argument may be sound, but is insufficient to account for judgment. Judgment has two branches: consideration and pronouncement. Pronouncement is embodied in the act. Consideration is not. Punishment follows from conviction, not trial. Likewise, it may be said, "All life is being." But the antipode of being is doing. Doing is not being, and vise versa, but they are both bound up in life. So maybe the antipode of properties is processes. Maybe mind exists in two constituent parts, which would account for why some things are thought of as non-mind.
