Re: The basic question of all philosophy is ?

Can the perceiving mind really know the absolute truth of reality? I personally say NO because a perceived thing is by nature dynamic and forever changing, therefore cannot be an absolute truth. . I'm betting that it can know. But we may not like what we ultimately discover. Take a particularly dis...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Like what? Can you name any of these unknowns? What are You? I sure don't know what I am. There is no You. If there is a you then that is known. Knowing you don’t know is still a known, not an unknown. If there is no Me then that must be that Oneness thing again. Still working on that.

But in my reality there certainly are unknowns, and lots of them.

Like what?

What are You?
I sure don't know what I am.

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

But to say it is our Visual Experience implies that there is an Observer also. I think this question of how to reconcile the Observer and the Observed is still one of the unknowns of Consciousness. The confusion and the obvious stumbling block to understanding the true nature of consciousness is in...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Synesthesia, although rare, has occurred already. Synesthesia is when two different Sense Perceptions are mixed up, like in Seeing Sound or Hearing Light. How does that have anything to do with what we are talking about?. I thought that if sound is detected by the eyes, it is a case of synesthesia ...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Do you actually sense that the Conscious Light Noise that you see with your eyes closed is a long distance away from you? That would be the first time anyone has reported that. In any case yes it is a fascinating problem. Synesthesia, although rare, has occurred already. Synesthesia is when two dif...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Do you actually sense that the Conscious Light Noise that you see with your eyes closed is a long distance away from you? Well since you ask, if I close my eyes it seems to me that any 'light noise' is slightly behind the bridge of my nose. Funny thing the human brain. That would be the first time ...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Well, I think you are arguing that we all have our own private perceptions, from which we construct our individual world models to which we respond in our own unique way. Fundamentally that is the theory dependence of observation espoused by Kuhn, Feyerabend and arguably Duhem, but if I have missed...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

You have missed the point about the Location of the Screen being embedded in the front of your face. You have missed the whole exercise of recognizing where the background Conscious Light Noise is located. Most people report It is located close to the front of their faces. Have you actually asked a...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Yes I try to give some reference point to argue from. But you are then missing the point of the rest of the post if that is all you can take from it. Well, I think you are arguing that we all have our own private perceptions, from which we construct our individual world models to which we respond i...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

We do not See things in the external World, but rather we Detect things by using internal Conscious processes that we are born with. Fair enough, you are incorporating Plato's analogy of the cave, Locke's veil of perception, Kant's distinction between nomenon and phenomena, just for starters, into ...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Hey Steve, The one thing I didn’t see you mention here is that, that conscious light screen IS our visual experience. The way you describe this can sometimes come across like you are trying to say there is another thing INSIDE our heads viewing the screen, when in reality, there is no need for a se...

Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

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 is happening in the external World. All the Conscious Light of your Visual Experience is...
