Re: Pure Consciousness?

I think you have covered a fair bit here. When you talk about types of consciousness you seems to be hinting at, the 'hard problem' of consciousness and the 'easy problem' of consciousness as articulated by people such as David Chalmers. I get this idea from your account of considering different ty...

Re: Is time continuous or discrete?

Time is just a measurement of change. It is not absolute, and it is not part of space-time, and is not a spatial dimension either, which means that time is neither continuous nor discrete.

Re: another psychiatric diagnosis under my belt

Your dad may have lived there, but, your mom sent you to your brother for help. Your brother was used as a father substitute. Whatever, your mom knew your father couldn't take care of the problem. She was wise. PS Baptist republicans? God has blessed them. it was a very traditional household in man...

While reading a thread in another forum, I saw the words "pure consciousness". Is there such a thing as "pure" consciousness? If there is such a thing, then what is impure consciousness? What does consciousness mix with that makes it impure? The obvious answer is that consciousness mixes with matte...
