Re: Logic is perfect

I think I want to say that consciousness is an abstraction of events happening in the brain. Nothing ever really happens to consciousness, as what actually happens has already happened, so to speak. What do you mean by 'abstraction?' I think I agree with you, except when you say 'nothing ever reall...

Re: what was before anything was.

not sure how your seeing it blags.but i am not saying that something came from nothing as in non existance.what i am saying is nothing is the non action state of something.but nothing always keeps its status as real existance and is god to the action expression which is something. It is sooooo hard...

Re: Logic is perfect

Are you comfortable with the way you've formulated this? Reasonably so but I'm open too critique. You got any? I'm not entirely sure (either that I have one or that's it's worth anything), so thanks for humoring me. I think I want to say that consciousness is an abstraction of events happening in t...

Re: Misconceiving Truth

Wandering Don.t waste your breath trying to explain the spiritual to the worldly minds. Their mines have been closed and their understanding is of this world. You are right. It sure would be a blunder on my part to further argue with those who only come here to intimidate. Thank you. So the convers...

My purpose right now is to respond to your post. Hopefully this answer serves to show that whatever problem you are trying to point out is really a function of the way you are formulating the question.

Re: The Need to Start From Scratch

And if you play the sound of running water in a dry environment, a beaver will build a dam despite the fact that doing so is effectively useless.

Re: The Need to Start From Scratch

The Engineer who built the Hoover Dam grew up learned engineering, and then applied it, the same cannot be said for Beavers in whatever time period, although they may have had some instinctual basis for their skill in constructing dams. I think we are saying the same thing? I was just being a bit t...

Re: The Need to Start From Scratch

That seems fairly obvious so ok I agree. Animals using science well that would take more convincing but I take your point. ;) Right now I have no real evidence outside of logic and the simplicity of the explanation. Other than scale there's really little difference between a beaver dam and the Hoov...

Re: Does Someone Need to Say This ?

But I do sometimes long for an alternate reality in which people would get my jokes. Learn better jokes and enjoy the sound of their laughter in this one. Or find different people to hang with. You are not a nameless prisoner trapped in a reality that doesn't need you but feels compelled to ensure ...

Re: The Need to Start From Scratch

Far and away the most striking difference between ancient scientists and modern scientists is that ancient scientists were aware they knew almost nothing at all even after 40,000 years of intensive study. Despite the fact we don't really know any more about gracity than they did most modern people ...

I am an aspect of reality, and I cannot *be* otherwise.

Reality doesn't "cling" to things; it is immanent in them.

Your statement is non-sense?
