There is indeed no ‘hard problem’: the brain is in no way fundamentally distinct from mind. But instead of meaning that mind is nothing but the brain, what this means is that the brain is nothing but mind! It is mind that is the broader framework, encompassing the brain but also the rest of existence. Our heads are in mind, not mind in our heads. The brain is merely an image in mind of a process of mind.
