Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

Now if you are unable to differentiate between a REAL, 'actual thing' from just an 'idea', then so be it. But, most people are able to. ''All concepts'' are known by the only knowing there is which is consciousness. Consciousness and the contents of consciousness are the same one reality. What does...

Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

Then there is no "simulation" either. The data ..''Then there is no "simulation" either'' ...infers there was a simulation that cannot be. The concept is known, and that which is known knows nothing. Which infers reality can be likened to a simulation. The subjective experience that reality is a si...

Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

Neo is the matrix. There is nothing beyond the field of dreams. Then nothing is being "simulated." QED Conceptually speaking yes, nothing, not-a-thing is being simulated. There's just life happening all by it's lonesome, one without a second. The observer and observed are infinitely everything and ...

Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

There is no conscious entity aware of the exact moment it has fallen asleep, nor is there any conscious entity controlling the exact moment it wakes up. In the same context, there is no conscious entity aware of the exact moment of birth, nor is there a conscious entity aware of the exact moment of ...

Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

There is no gap between the unconsciousness not-knowing ( sleep state) and the conscious knowing (awake state) They are two sides of the same coin transforming from one state to the other, they're only difference is in appearance only, but are in essence two aspects of the same exact substance. Alwa...

Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

To speculate that reality is a simulation means that the representations in the mind come from an unknown source. Not enough information. What do they "simulate"? If there's no ultimate "reality," there's nothing for them to "simulate," and then the term "simulation" refers to nothing at all. If Ne...

Re: Putting ''Immanuel Can'' In The Religious Spotlight Part 3

That's your assumption...that such a thing exists. Not mine. And I am not your judge, nor, thank God, you mine. Yet, how many times have you made claims about the holier-than-thou characteristics of theists vs. atheists? And now you say, it's not for you to judge, but for your God to judge. Mannie ...

Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

Reality shows up as symbols in the mind. Images, sounds, smells, tastes and tacile feelings are not reality. They are representations of reality. To speculate that reality is a simulation means that the representations in the mind come from an unknown source. Without proof of the unknown source, mo...

Re: Religious Fantasy ( Eternal Life )

Humans are body, mind and soul. We know about the body because our nerves bring senses to our mind. Thus whatever our senses tell us about our bodies, the mind responds. We also know about the mind because the mind is aware but what the mind is made of is unknown. This means that we can react to th...

When did nature become teleological. Is, "nature," some kind of God, with some ultimate objective "purpose" (apparently only revealed to you)?

Re: IF the universe was created THEN...

The word 'you' is an idea about 'what', EXACTLY? YOU This may be 100% True and Correct, but this does NOT take away from the FACT that some labels point to, refers to, or are of actual things. For example, the word 'knower' refers to some ACTUAL 'thing', correct? The word ''knower'' is an idea. An ...
