Re: Consciousness IS - but it's NOT a ''Conscious Experience''

Gravity is the fact that the Apple falls. Science would not say Gravity does not exist if one theory was replaced by another but rather it would just have an revised Explanation. In fact this has happened with the understanding of Space-Time Curvature replacing Field Theory. Gravity among every oth...

Re: Consciousness IS - but it's NOT a ''Conscious Experience''

Consciousness is the nature of reality, just as consciousness is the nature of dream. I agree, but just as a matter of curiosity, I was thinking about dreams we remember when we wake up v. the dreams we don’t remember at all. Were we conscious of the dreams we don’t remember in the morning? I'm not...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

I have thought that there is a certain amount of reasonableness to the Oneness proposition. I just don't have a way to Understand Oneness as being true for my Reality of the Universe. The one trying to understand oneness is what's obscuring the oneness that is already being you...the (other one) th...

Re: Perception

but I think I'll continue to go by what I consciously experience, rather than your, or anyone else's, word. There is no I consciously experiencing anything especially itself, simply because there is no self here. Any known I is fictional character, imagined by no thing. If it's imagined by a thing,...

Re: Free Will

The more we recognise ourselves as consciousness reflected upon itself, the more we move toward self-love, love for all, peace, and joy. For as long as our psyche is split into two parts - ''mental'' and "physical" we remain limited to the understanding of self-love, love for all, peace and joy. . ...

Re: Free Will

You say what I see is my own light reflected back at me while I cannot see the light of the one I love shining at me. This is foolish. How you can get reciprocity when alone is quite the task. It is like just changing hand when you masturbate and saying you are not alone. Everything is Light or Con...

Re: Consciousness IS - but it's NOT a ''Conscious Experience''

Human minds are physical and so are finite in scope so expecting them to have omniscient capability is beyond what is actually possible The mind is the primary organ of experience, not the brain. The concept ''physical'' is known by consciousness not by any thing physical like a brain. Consciousnes...

Re: Consciousness IS - but it's NOT a ''Conscious Experience''

All there is is Consciousness... All there is and is not is the Absolute. Which one is all there is? One can be everything; two cannot. Question: Which One? Answer: There's only One One - - One is everything including the conceptually known knowledge (''two cannot'') Knowledge of ( that which is kn...

Re: Free Will

nice word salad, but if you say so. That's the problem with word salad, it's no substitute for the real experience of tasting salad. The menu card is not the food. We don't taste the menu. Talking about what is only ever going live right now can only be known on reflection via memory which is never...

Re: Consciousness IS - but it's NOT a ''Conscious Experience''

You are taking Gap as a Spatial Gap but it is an Explanatory Gap. Also, I think I can be the thing, Redness, but still not know what Redness is. We clearly do not know what we are. So we must ask questions until we discover what we are. That which can explain it's own existence has to come from con...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

I am an Engineer so I have to know How everything works. I am an ''Engineer'' is Consciousness aware of itself as a concept it has created within it's own mind. The ''I am'' is Consciousness prior to that which it is aware of which is it's own mind-made concept of itself...in the form of '' I am an...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

I don't know How Consciousness works so that is Why I pursue it. It is what I do. If the Oneness thing is the answer then I don't understand that yet. I understand that Steve ..but the truth is only you will figure this out for yourself. There is nothing another person can say to you that will alte...

Re: Does a pregnant woman carry a human being/person or just 'life'/meat?

No. I do not think it is necessary to put that kind of human concept/identification on anything that naturally courses through or envelops all. I do not think there is some master being making decisions. But I do think that the vast creative expressions that are being explored and experienced on so...
