Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

I fully expect that the answer to the Hard Problem will involve some sort of understanding of a Conscious Self concept. The only hard part is thinking consciousness can be detected or looked at. That's like expecting a banana to be able to look at itself and say hey there's me being a banana..can y...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

First you must explain your concept of "Define". We cannot define anything precisely. If we attempt to, we get into that paralysis of thought that comes to philosophers, who sit opposite each other, one saying to the other, "You don't know what you are talking about!". The second one says, "What do...

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

As an analogy we could say that the Universe is Physics and that is all you need to know or say. It's essentially a true statement but there is a huge Explanatory Gap in making a statement like that. If you say the Universe is Consciousness and that is all you need to know or say, then even if it i...

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

As an analogy we could say that the Universe is Physics and that is all you need to know or say. I think you've said more than needs to be said. It simply begs the question: What is physics? For I can sure say this: The Universe is. On the other hand, that sure begs the question: Why do you need to...

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

1 Is the Absolute 2 is Consciousness 3 is Space. By Association: 1 Is Dreamless sleep, 2 is the waking state, 3 is the dream state. Seeing, hearing, etc, may be seen as the faculties of Consciousness, but the ears and eyes that participate in it are as much Consciousness as what is perceived via th...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Let's just say that if everyone became Smarter then maybe someone would be able to answer the Question. In any case being Smart is not relevant to the Question: How does Neural Activity produce Conscious Experience? Steve, only a concious entity knowledgeable of it's own existence can ask a questio...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Ok here's one for you: What is the meaning of How and How can you come to understand the meaning of What. Ohhhhh. I thought we are busy engaging in actual problem-solving. Turns out you've been engaging in sophistry. I can play that game too... Define "meaning". First you must explain your concept ...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Let's just say that if everyone became Smarter then maybe someone would be able to answer the Question. It's not good enough to say it. How would we assert whether we are, in fact, getting smarter? How smart do we need to be in order to answer the question? How would we know when the question is an...

Re: What is consciousness to you?

I like to study the Color Red. I like to talk about the Redness of Red to indicate that I am talking about the Conscious Phenomenon that is in your Mind and not the Electromagnetic Phenomenon at 670nm that is out in the Physical World. I browsed the site, but found it too far removed from my ideas ...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

The reason why I can't figure it out is that I'm not smart enough. But it appears that every Human on this planet is also not smart enough. Your self-pitty is not really getting us any closer to an answer. It only raises more questions: What does it mean to be smart? And you are still going around ...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

I reject your Religious Belief using 300 year old logic that Truth cannot ultimately be attained. Nice deflection, but we aren't talking about Truth. We are talking about your ability to answer the question: What is consciousness? I was asking you about any retrospective and introspective insights ...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Why didn't any of your attempts produce even a wrong answer? ok I give up. The totality of my Arguments and Speculations about all this, and the Machine Consciousness Experiment that I have conducted, can be found at http://TheInterMind.com That's a lot of monologue. Are you trying to tell me that ...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

Well, did you arrive at any wrong answers? How many? You may not have answered the question, but did you make any progress that we need to know about? Any work that you've left behind where we can pick up from? What did you try? What worked? What didn't work? Zero answers. Why didn't any of your at...

Re: What is consciousness to you?

Science has tried to find How Consciousness is located in the Neurons for a hundred years now and has failed. When I study Consciousness I like to limit my scope to Sensory Experience and then limit it even further to the Visual Experience. The Visual Experience is composed of all the Colors that c...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

The whole industry of Science itself does not know How to Begin Answering any question involving Conscious Experience. That's because there is no one asking the question. If there was then it would also have the answer. Can't have a question without an answer, else the question wouldn't even arise,...
