Re: The Physical, Life, Consciousness, and The Human Mind—A Preface

Of course you reject my words. Don't let it bother you. I reject everyone's words, especially the words of all gurus, shamans, authorities, experts, academics, and philosophers. The basis for all I know is reason from evidence, or rational explanations that do not contradict anything I already know...

Re: What is consciousness to you?

I'm suggesting that you shouldn't believe anyone. Certainly not me by any means. I'm certainly not advocating any kind of cult worship like Jehovah's Witnesses! I'm suggesting that You are the Ultimate Authority and no one else! If everyone were the ultimate authority, how is cooperation achieved? ...

Re: What is consciousness to you?

No I'm not talking about any kind of belief system that needs some sort of authority figure to validate it. I'm talking about non duality which is based on first person experience. Why the hell would I need some so called "authority figure" to validate truth? I am not comparing panpsychism to any p...

Re: The Nature of Life

Why do you need a Sage? For validation? Is he the one who gives you the stamp of approval. Don't think for yourself, make sure you consult with the Sage first! :))

Re: The Nature of Life

You're still not getting it. The physical does not know. Being is not physical nor is it a thing. Being has no shape, size, color or any limiting qualities whatsoever. It is infinite and eternal. It can partition itself into an infinite amount of subdivisions yet those subdivisions are the total sum...

Re: What is consciousness to you?

Consciousness is not an epiphenomenon of brains. Brains occur in Consciousness (as does everything else). There is no perceiver either, just perceptions. Consciousness is all that exists. You exist as pure consciousness. You are IT. Science will NEVER grasp consciousness because it has everything ba...

Re: The Physical, Life, Consciousness, and The Human Mind—A Preface

RC: Non dualists such as the Aztecs understood Consciousness as the only thing in existence. We've actually understood Consciousness and what it is and what it is NOT for over 5000 years....and NO, consciousness is not an epiphenomenon of brains. Brains and neuroscience occur IN Consciousness.

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

We don't know enough about the Universe yet to be able to confidently say there are no other Not Things. We don’t know anything about the “we” that claims to be the knower, there is only knowledge aka conceptual things known by the unknown knower. . By We I meant Science. And correct, Science does ...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Neuroscience will NEVER solve the hard problem. Ever. Why? Because neuroscientists for the most part think that consciousness is produced by brains and that mind is a function of brain. They have it bass ackwards. Consciousness is first order. In other words brains and neuroscience occur in Consciou...

Re: Ultimate Reality

Physical systems and a physical universe don't exist as there is NOTHING to ground the physical. What your stating is a form of Naive Realism. Sloppy metaphysics at best!
