Mind to the body

One of the most ancient of philosophical debates; what is the relationship of the mind to the body?

Answers to this question have included:

(1) they influence each other totally;

(2) they don't influence each other at all;

(3) mind doesn't really exist;

(4) body doesn't really exist;

(5) mind and body are really the same thing.

And you wondered what philosophers did for a living.
