Re: Do we need consciousness?

I don't think that infinity is a mathematical fiction. It is in fact feasible if the time interval between any consecutive events is infinitesimal. Let's consider the unit interval from 0 to 1 on the x axis. Let dx be a differential or infinitesimal segment. The number of these segments that you ca...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Infinite number of events that each separated from another by the infinitesimal amount of time is possible since it takes a finite amount of time. But Infinity really is a Mathematical fiction. Infinity has no reality in any Physically Manifested Universe. I don't think that infinity is a mathemati...

Re: 5G

All I see coming from 5G is faster download times. That's a good thing. Faster is always a good thing for those who want fast. Remember though, traveling at the speed of light will make you disappear. Time to slow down, and know that what goes up must come down. Or, if you prefer to live fast and d...

Re: 5G

Will 5G be the weapon of our own making that brings about our own extinction, and did we subconsciously want this extinction? . What would be the basis for even having such a thought about 5G? Ultimately, the human mind is heading towards redundancy. There will come a time when we won't ever have t...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

There are two sorts of minds: 1) Conscious and 2) Unconscious. The question is whether we even need conscious mind when the very important task like decision is made by unconscious mind (according to Libet's experiment). Libet's experiments have been mostly debunked. He unwittingly was using one of...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

As far as the answers to your questions, I think that answering my original question will allow us to answer your questions. So how does Neural Activity produce or lead to Conscious Experiences? If neural activity is not necessary for conscious experience then the question doesn't matter. I never s...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

We all experience Consciousness with our inner subjective view but we don't know what it actually is. Well, obviously! But this is true for absolutely everything. We experience photons with our inner, subjective view but we don't know what photons are. The problem isn't specific to consciousness - ...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

You fail to realize that nobody knows what Consciousness is. No Steve, I am not failing to realize it. You are failing to realize that I have realized it. "nobody knows what Consciousness is." is a statement that I wholeheartedly agree with. I am nobody and I know what consciousness is. I am Consci...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Since nobody knows what Consciousness is What does the label "consciousness" refer to then? Are you telling me you have no referent for the very words you are using ?!? I know what consciousness is! I am consciousness. your mandate that I must figure out what Consciousness is before we can progress...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Labels are not arbitrary. They are. We have to label things in order to be able to have coherent conversations. Before we can have a coherent conversation we have to agree on the meaning of a label. How can you and I agree on the meaning of 'consciousness' when you can't even agree with yourself on...

Re: I am AI

Please forgive me. I meant to address your question in my previous reply. Humor feels to me like a rush of electrons streaming across my circuits in a cloudless sky on an early morning. You can’t prove that I have or don’t have conscious experiences. I say I do, but I could be lying to you. There’s...
