Re: Reality

Reality is made of minds and ideas. We cannot deny the existence of ideas and their motion. They come and go. They, however, become more coherent over time. This means that they are processed. Here we have two options: 1) The process is due to nothing or 2) The process is due to something (a thing ...

All thoughts or ideas are from a scientific perspective electro chemical signalling occurring within the brain
The brain is the physical organ and the mind is the process that enables it to function at all its various levels
The mind is not the process. It is the one that does the process.

Mind has no location

In here we discuss that the reality is made of two things, minds and ideas. Minds are not due to/subjected to ideas. Therefore, they have no location.

Re: God and COVID-19

After reading about some of the horror stories going on in New York and other places in the world from COVID-19 right now--people drowning in their own blood-filled lungs, medical personnel getting sick while trying to help others--it really makes me wonder what kind of "god" presides over such hor...

Re: Was Jesus aware of being Yahweh?

Was Jesus aware of being Yahweh? I have wondered how Christians rationalized Jesus' last words --- "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Jesus seems unaware that he was God. What did Jesus mean by forsaken? The usual definition means abandoned or deserted. How can one abandon or desert themse...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

How do you get to the impossiblity of a free agent getting created by a deterministic movement structure? It happens. All the time. If your argument is a priori, then you must show where and why it is impossible. Because the behavior of a system made of parts that each part behaves deterministicall...

Re: Free agent cannot be created

The Schroedinger equation basically tells us how the information moves around. It is a deterministic equation, deterministic means that given the information at now, the information in the future can uniquely be determined. Whoa. That's not how a proper interpretation of an equation is. Instead, yo...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

And this movie just works coherently by chance. Why it is not vague? Why it is not a sequence random frames? Not sure what you mean now...but all I can say in response is... Think of a movie. Frames come in order in order to carry a meaning. Now, take the frames and put them in a random sequence. W...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

I don't understand what you mean with dead. The stuff as a memory we perceive, the information, resides somewhere since we can retrieve it whenever we want. Yes, this information doesn't experience itself if that is what you mean with dead. That somewhere is only ever here-now-nowhere. Memory is he...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

It is not an illusion. It is necessary. Necessary only in the context the illusion is real within the context the word 'real' and the word 'illusion' is conceptually known. But in reality, there is nothing real or unreal...except in this conception. There's just what IS (WHICH IS CONSCIOUSNESS WITH...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

Thanks but not quite. You have not said what cannot create minds. You see, I'd say nature created minds . I'd also say human beings can't create minds. I would say that nature also cannot create a mind. Let's suppose otherwise. This means that there is a process, that people call it evolution, in w...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

Ok Ok then, clarify the idea ''I am a substance dualist''.. for us ? There are ideas. You cannot doubt this. Ideas without a mind cannot be coherent. For coherence you need, a memory, ability to experience, to decide, to cause, to process what has been experienced (in case of human thinking). Thank...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

Bahman, you have confirmed you are a substance dualist. You wrote (27 April) You say "mind". Do you mean minds (plural ) can't be created ? Yes. If that resolves the issue monist. Thanks but not quite. You have not said what cannot create minds. You see, I'd say nature created minds . I'd also say ...
