If someone is mentally incapable of doing something, does that also mean they are physically incapable of doing it? My argument is that since the brain is a physical and material object, assuming that it alone is responsible for thought, and that its influence on the body is absolute, can't we assume that any shortcomings it has be described in terms of a physical incapacity?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions that push a personal philosophy with no question beyond "am I right" or "what do you think" are off-topic here as this is not a blog. It's ok to express unique opinions, but you must have an actual, answerable question to go with them." – Keelan, Swami Vishwananda, jeroenk, Five σ

Mental activities are not of the same kind as physical activities. In other words, everyone is physically incapable of activity that is mental, and mentally incapable of activity that is physical.
