Re: What is gravity?

_______ QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT AND THE SPEED OF LIGHT. Looking back at my OP, it dawned on me that in the same way that quantum entanglement could be the underlying reason for an object’s weight with respect to the gravitational pull of a planet (see the OP), it could also be the reason why an object ...

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

[......] surreptitious57, before I address the substance of your reply, I am having trouble understanding how you can quote me (presumably using the site’s quote system) and suddenly all of my carefully placed commas, periods, dashes, apostrophes, arrows, and even some of my words, are missing.

Re: Does the Human Brain Create or Receive Consciousness?

_______ I suggest that the essence of life (the foundation of consciousness) is present within every fiber of the fabric of reality. And if one stitches the fibers together into just the right configuration (a brain, for example) it can prompt (trigger/induce) the essence of life into acquiring cons...

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

Because it seems quite obvious (to me, anyway) that the endless and boundless, omnidirectional nothingness that is constantly giving-way to the expansion of our little bubble of reality (again, as depicted in the illustration)... ...represents a clear and tangible visualization of what the word “in...

Re: Ethics versus Morality

I guess the question then becomes – how do the more enlightened humans of the world convince others that their actions are immoral without coming off as trying to impose their own personal morals on the other? Just answer this question, then you will have THEE answer. How does one "convince" you th...

Re: Mind is eternal

_______ (Continued from prior post) Don’t get me wrong here, bahman, because I am always deeply impressed by anyone who can converse in more than one language, but it appears as though English is not your native (first) language. Is that correct? If that is true, then it seems as though the way you ...

Re: Mind is eternal

Could you please tell me that what mind is made of? If I had to speculate...

Re: Mind is eternal

Re: Ethics versus Morality

Fair point... but ... does the labelling of such acts as immoral actually benefit anyone? I think that it would, but only if the labeling is accompanied with a direct and forceful intervention to try and put a halt to it. And when I say forceful intervention, I mean that the perpetrators of this ba...
