Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

You are not likely to see the 500 pound gorilla. No it won't be seen because the elephant in the living room (aka the 500 pound gorilla) is invisible to the physical eye. This is how a schizo serial killer would defend himself and insist "the invisible man held my hand against my will to kill those...

Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

The Universe is indeed eternally creating new moments in time and space but a moment is so small that it cannot actually be measured It is as close to instantaneous as it is possible to get without time actually stopping and motion freezing and is very infinitesimal indeed Exactly, there is no in-b...

Re: Nothing happens in your brain.

You are one who states that someone is a believer who condemns believers without offering any supporting statements. No I was responding to Veritas assumptions that there is such an entity called a believer in God, he has clearly made that point many times that there is a someone here that believes...

Re: Nothing happens in your brain.

No one concurred with the notion that a philosophical zombie exists in reality. Hypotheticals are hypothetical so that without proof or evidence one can yet conceptualize them. You are one who states that someone is a believer who condemns believers without offering any supporting statements. So wh...

Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

Every living being and every non living entity is new in every moment because the moment in life that contains everything renews itself every moment. There is nothing there to grab hold and say this is actually so The Universe is indeed eternally creating new moments in time and space but a moment ...

Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

One point is; you have to accept the human mind is very fallible and more so in your case when you have NOT established a reasonable database of knowledge relevant to understand [not necessary agree with] the issues involved in this specific issue. Every living being and every non-living entity is ...

Re: Nothing happens in your brain.

What is meant to happen, albeit illusory, will happen. Man is not the doer. Word and mind cannot access the Absolute One. The moving in any moment is instinct and is manifested by the intelligence in life and is neither done by man nor by his brain. Life is a singular unitary movement. There is no y...

Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

Matter and Consciousness are two different things, the former is a vortex of kinetic energy and the latter is a perfectly still (latent) condition having unlimited potential energy, called "Quantum Vacuum" While searching for a cause-effect relationship in the diminutive succession of a thing, an in...

Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

However there is a provable real empirical "I" that is capable of thinking, talking and confirming the following; 1. there is no separate "I" [you and I agree on this] This is a misleading dichotomy a typical error of thinking. To prove anything is to separate reality into a prover and the proof wh...

Re: Nothing happens in your brain.

Consciousness is unconscious.Mind is on reflection - an aspect of consciousness, a mirror image of the imageless. Identification with the image is the delusion. Images are fleeting, nothing to grab hold of. While consciousness (invisible mirror) is unchanging, nothing to grab hold of. Grabbing hold ...

Re: Nothing happens in your brain.

So when it come down to our individual human consciousness, we see that the brain is more like a satellite dish receiving information from the field of consciousness through the mind which then directs the brain of what signals to send into the body. This is a description of the philosophical zombi...

Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

Instead of communicating with people as if they possessed intelligence, try using abstract spiritual terms that convey no usable information. ??? What is that? It's absolute magic. It's sound arising from silence heard as words with meaning attached always a usefulness when communicating with yours...

Re: What if God is weak?

Long story short the very notions of God AND belief are unscientific! ‘Belief’ itself is untestable/unfalsifiable. Other than linguistic masturbation I don’t even know what it means to ‘believe in God’. What would be the consequences of such belief? Until somebody gives me a testable/falsifiable de...

Re: Does the Empirical-I Exist?

Therefore you cannot even try to reconcile and conflate/equivocate the conditioned 'energy' with the totally unconditioned God. Hello, and welcome to Wickers World...where wiki men are appearing here there and everywhere now here in the form of useful knowledge. As for reconciliation, of course the...

Re: Nothing happens in your brain.

We are ghosts but not in the machine. The machine is in the ghost. Awareness of awareness, i.e. being aware that you are aware of something is what psychologists call metacognition. Its an inside job, the inside of you is simultaneously outside of you. Awareness is an inside-out phenomena. No awaren...
