Re: Philosophy of Mind

Not quite. 23 The mind is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I wil...

Re: Communicating with Superconsciousness

In the morning a person may say, “Here comes the sun.” The sun may say, “Here comes my person.” A latrine may say, “Here comes the crap” A Person may say, “There goes my waste.” An old atheist may say “I’m worried now but I won’t be worried long.” An old Christian may say, “I know that life continue...

Re: Consciousness = Self-awareness?

After another thought, and another listen to that Rupert video, I feel that the subject, which is the observer, and the objects, which are the observations, must collapse back together. To realise that, the observations and the one who is observing are one, therefore no subject object distinction. ...

Re: On Non-Existent Objects

Raymond Tallis explores non-being and time. https://philosophynow.org/issues/126/On_Non-Existent_Objects He could cover his "thesis" in a paragraph or two. But nooooooo. He wastes my free read with trying to sell a simple idea that anyone can understand if he weren't so wordy. He has pissed me off.

Re: My point of view

. 1. The concept of the Trinity, as evidenced in my many posts, seems to be a universal degree in which reality operates. Reality expresses itself through dualistic extremes which are synthesized under a third medial phenomenon. It seems logical that God would synthesize with creation and be able t...

The duty of the brain is to provide inputs to the mind. We experience everything. Experience, however, is codded differently for each mind.
You are correct, sir.

Re: Why Christianity May Be the Most Logical Religion.

All religions are based on the logic of the prophets and priests. Put your mind to those that you know nothing about and tell why they haven't any meaning whatsoever. The posts on this thread at tines has no respect for competing ideas. The posters are brainless. In Roman times the EGYPTIAN goddess ...

The mind is here.

The brain is not.

Re: Ethical Relationships

I support the simplification of explanations but can't the effort to simplify go too far? Consider that ethics could be one idea but also the change in society has relations to rights, morals, control, contracts, risk management, safety, protection, promotion of interests, subjugation, politics, etc...
