Interesting line of thought and fundamental in really trying to understand a non-physical state of being.
I would think that since the will can create phantom pain, it's possible that pain could exist in a non-physical state.
It's also possible that the chemical reaction in our bodies that produce cognition, emotion and movement might exist in a non-physical, primary state
and our physicality just mimics this through physical chemicals.
As far as I know, there is still a conundrum over how our nerves produce movement... meaning they haven't found the complete chain of chemical
reactions that explains the whole thing.
Now to read the replies and learn a thing or three... good OP.
Edit: I would also think that the primary, pure energy state would enable one to experience whatever one wished... and I suspect that physicality
exists to give us something to wish for, or extrapolate on... as just pleasantly being offers no novelty. As non-physical beings, a state where
extremes and differences are experienced for growth would be desirable at some point in eternity. Add to that thought duality... the other, to
alleviate loneliness, if the mystics are right and we are a scattered whole.
Drifting in a pleasant state of being where no pain exists would be stagnant and ...well, boring. It follows that physicality might have been
constructed to enable the non-physical to learn and grow.
