Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

As I pointed out earlier when it comes downloading 'so-called Human' consciousness they are trying to duplicate and mimic the Humans brain - This statement is false. A human brain is just a complex mass of biological tissue. It is not a mind because a mind is not a "thing". A mind is a process and ...

Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

Einstein is right. Subatomic particles are EMERGENT. Emergent entities have properties which are not definable in terms of the properties of their constituent parts so an electron is not definable in terms of the energy quanta which encode for it. However the crucial point about emergence is that t...

Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

The new twat thinks rock are smarter than humans. In all fairness you shouldn't take him out of context. The claim is only that SOME rocks are smarter than SOME humans. On the basis of the evidence available within this forum his argument is not without merit. UA. Do you know what the principle of ...

Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

And the more I, Human with an alien view, think about it, how vain for Humans to 'assume' a monopoly on a consciousness they can not even define adequately :!: To say you are conscious and the environment you are in is not is absurd. Pretending is not an argument. Parts of the environment; living t...

Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

Soon, and it will not be long, Man the species of dreamers, will try again to play God - the omnipotence of his imagination. He failed miserably in Babylon and as the tower of Babel fell with his dreams his history became a reflection of his stupidity - chaotic without meaning or direction. ... I t...

OK geniuses try this one from NEW SCIENTIST: Location of the mind remains a mystery Where does the mind reside? It’s a question that’s occupied the best brains for thousands of years.

Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

OK, a biological body we can understand - But it is a conscious mind that is defining that body. And where does the conscious mind come from? You want to say the body? - But is it not the conscious mind that is defining the body? Lately I've come to believe more and more in the old concept of 'unive...

Re: Does Mind Require a Biological Body to be Conscious?

Don't believe they can put your 'mind' in a machine because....????? The mind is a control mechanism for a body. When you change the body, you inherently change the mind controlling it. Take out the hormone system of the body, and the mind vastly changes from what it was. Take out the temperature i...
