I meant primary in the sense that physical reality is
made out of mind. There are two main positions in the
philosophy of mind: dualism and monism. Dualists believe
that everything is physical or mental. The monists
believe everything is made out of one substance. Idealism
is the brand of monism according to which everything is
mental (mind is primary), while materialism states
everything is physical. Does that clear things up?
