Re: Free agent cannot be created

Matter behaves in a deterministic way in quantum regime too. The Schrodinger equation is a deterministic equation. The Schrodinger equation is an equation for spread of information. Mind is the solution to those problems. There are minds interacting through information. Interesting. I don't know wh...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

I am a substance dualist. Ok I can clarify any issue if you refer me to it. 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...

Bahman, you have confirmed you are a substance dualist. You wrote (27 April)
I have another proof for mind which shows it cannot be created.
You say "mind". Do you mean minds (plural ) can't be created ?
Yes. If that resolves the issue monist.

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

I agree with Bahman the sensation and the cognition of the sensation are both real. Let me be more precise: What is "real" about the cognition is thought itself, but not what it points to. There might be a thought arising ... "unicorn" ... the thought is real, the concept/thing that it attempts to ...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

I don't want to repeat myself but you need to explain these things as well to explain the reality as it is, memory, experience (what do you stress), decision, causation, and thinking (the process of what you perceive). I said that I experience the self once. Your system of belief lacks these things...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

Of course, I can understand what you are saying. What you are saying just doesn't make any sense, so I question it. I don't know whats not making sense... All I am saying is: pinch your arm - feel that? Thats reality. All you can say about this sensation is not reality (while, of course, yes, the t...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

How could you say that apple or its taste is real? According to you, that is a belief too. Your mind just interprets that there is an apple. In both case, whether you experience my thoughts or you taste an apple, you get informed. I am not sure if you are simply unable to understand what I am tryin...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

What do you believe? I believe that the finger pointing at the moon is not the moon. I believe that any conceptual interpretation of an experience is not the direct experience - the interpretation is not reality, it is only a finger pointing at reality - if you want to see the moon , look at the mo...

Re: Determinism without causality

Why don't we re-think the Many World's Intepretation to a fit a deterministic universe? According to the Many Worlds-interpretation, the universal wave function splits the universe into two branches for every event. By re-thinking it, I mean we live in one branch, and we can trace it all way back t...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

If you are the observer of the ideas but not ideas then you are something different. I think that is obvious. Its only obvious in the world of dualistic thought, not in reality. Imagine - for a moment - that reality is non dual, that there is no separation, no things/objects - just unbroken conscio...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

If you are the observer of the ideas but not ideas then you are something different. I think that is obvious. Its only obvious in the world of dualistic thought, not in reality. Do you have any argument for your reality? Or this is just a belief like other beliefs. Imagine - for a moment - that rea...

Re: Anything which cannot be created cannot be annihilated too

I already asked you whether you are a chain of ideas and your answer was no. My answer was: I am the "one" who observes this "stream of ideas" (which shouldn't imply that there is a separate "one" - there is no separate entity at all) Also: The above shouldn't imply that there are no conditioned/ac...

Re: should philosophy even exist?

I came across this peculiar person (Osho) and a video around philosophy. And if I'm not mistaken, there are others around the same subject. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK4aVB1uPOg Although I don't mind philosophy myself (quite the contrary), he certainly has a point around experience, and conti...

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 w...
