Re: Cartesian dualism

I insist that I can Experience Sound without describing it with Words. In fact it is not true that you can even actually describe a Sound with Words. Describe the Experience of the Standard A Tone with Words. Steve, I'm talking about the actual 'Knower' of the experience of sound. I'm not talking a...

Re: Cartesian dualism

You don't need Words to Experience a Sound. I'd like to address this part again Steve. And remember, nothing I say is absolute, I'm merely sharing my own personal direct experience of how I view reality from here. There is no experience of sound or any other conceptual known experience without a kn...

Assuming God exists, and ignoring the lack of evidence for said deity:

If God is almighty, can he make a rock so heavy he cannot carry it?

Yes, God can do anything, he carries the rock in his mind metaphorically speaking.

And the mind is weightless.

But even if there is only one Source there are still different Categories of Conscious Experience.
That the one source is having yes. From source to source an endless spring.

Re: Consciousness IS - but it's NOT a ''Conscious Experience''

But if you sincerely Understand that there is no external Universe to be understood, why would you ever go on the Quest. I don't understand anything except what I only think I know even though I don't really know who or what or why there is thinking, or what thought is. I don't deny there is an ext...

Re: An act of God

Your grapes are sour, and you are spitting out the only thing that is worth anything; seeds of knowledge for which you have no respect. With all due respect the grape is the seed. No need to keep reinventing the wheel of life, unless the desire to ride the wheel is there, which it is, else what nee...

Re: Cartesian dualism

But Words are not Sound. You don't need Words to Experience a Sound. No doubt animals can have an Experience of Sound without any Words. Sound is a pure Conscious Mind Experience that can only be Experienced. Sound in fact can not be described by Words. Just like Redness cannot be described by Word...

Re: Cartesian dualism

The Explanatory Gaps that I talk about have nothing to do with words. The Explanatory Gap between Neural Activity and Conscious Activity is the most difficult problem in Brain Science that there is today. Explanations require words to make them known. Words are sound. What is sound ? Your theory or...

But from your point of view then, since you don't think there is an independently existing Universe, you cannot have any fun on the Quest.
I can if the desire is there.

Intention is the rider of the will.

Where there's a will there's a way.

Re: Closing Imagined Explanatory Gaps

In my reality there is an objective Physical Universe that Exists regardless of someone thinking about it. From your perspective, why does the Universe try to fool us into thinking that there really is a Universe? It fools you into thinking there is a someone thinking about reality, and that the th...

Maybe true. But how is it that Neural Activity and Conscious Activity are not different Categories of Phenomena?
Because all known activity has one source...and that is the knower.

Re: Perception

In that case the illusion is so powerful that it is treated as if was reality so it makes no difference I certainly would not think any differently if I knew for an absolute fact that it was all an illusion That the illusion is real is immaterial.

Re: Let's talk about morphic resonance

The other day while watching a flock of flying birds I noticed that when they turn, those on the outside of the turn fly much faster than those nearer the center, which causes each individual to maintain its relative position in the formation. Maintaining the overall pattern of the group by means o...
