Re: Perception and Consciousness

Would anyone like to have a discussion about that part of consciousness we call 'perception'? I believe that perception is an activity and that we are much more like an artist creating our conscious experience than we are mere receivers of our conscious experience. This is contrary to, among others...

Re: An argument against materialism

Randomness is the only option available for a materialist when it comes to decision. That is true since decision is uncaused cause and material process is deterministic. The experience of wanting is after decision is made (following Libet's experiement) therefore they are different phenomena. We ho...

Re: Why Humans Will Never Understand 4D Space

This thread is not about the Metaphysical meaning of understanding. Thank you for the book suggestion, but even though I have not read it I have read enough about it to know what it is about. I am not talking about metaphysics. I am pointing at the meta- epistemic problem of self-skepticism: How do...

Here’s an interesting article: The Present Phase of Stagnation in the Foundations of Physics Is Not Normal.

Maybe scientists should study the role consciousness has.
Yes. They need to figure out How to study Consciousness. They really don't know How or they would have by now.

Re: Why Humans Will Never Understand 4D Space

What are your criteria for "understanding" ? e.g how would any particular "wannabe understander" (such as myself) determine if I do or don't understand 4D space? You can understand Graphically, where you would look at slices of 4D Space, which would be separate 3D Spaces, and try to make sense of h...

Re: Why Humans Will Never Understand 4D Space

4D Space does not include Time. In a 4D Universe Time would have to be the 5th dimension. You are making up your own reality, shut up! It looks like you don't understand the purpose of this thread. Of course our Universe is 3D but there is Speculation that it could have been 4D or other dimensional...

Re: Addressing the Physicalist Delirium

Science is on the verge of losing many people due not just to its elitism, but that fact it has made promises to a better future it cannot hold. That and quantum mechanics really is fucking it as everything is connected and we are left to look inwards for truth...for lack of better wording. Science...

Pure mad ramblings! 4D space is just 3D + time, that's how they make make GPS work by sending the signal 45 ns before it hits the satellite due to time dilation etc.

Why Humans Will Never Understand 4D Space

I have always more or less been on a quest to understand the Universe. I decided to start with understanding the more fundamental aspects of the Universe and then build on that understanding to understand more complicated things. But the question came up as to what was the most fundamental thing in ...

Addressing the Physicalist Delirium

The Physicalists on this and other forums complain about three basic statements that I have made. They seem to show an emotionalism in their replies that reveals a hidden frustration with their inability to address the statements in any coherent way. They are getting more and more Delirious. They ar...

Re: Trixie's Thread about Mind.

Here are some thoughts about the TV Screen of the Conscious Mind that you talked about. We do not See things in the external World, but rather we Detect things by using internal Conscious processes that we are born with. We all have a personal Conscious Light Screen (CLS) that we use to detect what ...

Re: Calling all consciousness deniers

What is the Light you See in your Dreams? What is the Light you See when you rub your eyes? What is the Light that you See when you are experiencing an After Image? These Lights are the key to understanding that we don't really See the Physical Light but rather our Brains create a Surrogate Consciou...

Re: Could we make a "litmus test" for true consciousness?

I think that is mind which is autonomous. Sorry I should have said "If no, why could not we consider it as an affection to mind?". I hope that makes sense right now. The origin of the Conscious Mind is unknown but it looks like it is spawned from the Physical Mind early on in development. The Consc...

Re: Could we make a "litmus test" for true consciousness?

I don't think we can point to a Scientific case where there is Qualia with no Neural Activity, but I'm not convinced that Qualia can't be autonomous. I think that is mind which is autonomous. Not sure what the second question is asking. Sorry I should have said "If no, why could not we consider it ...
