Re: The Inter Mind

Here is the basic question that this thread asks ... Given: 1) Neural Activity for Red happens. 2) A Conscious experience of Red happens. How does 1 produce 2? The old Dodge that the Red experience is just an Illusion doesn't work anymore. Even if you think it is an Illusion then what is the thing t...

Re: Trixie's Thread about Mind.

But an experience of Red can happen and then not happen for different Conscious Minds at different times and places. Nothing ever happens, but happening does apparently appear within the nothing happening. Infinity cannot happen, and yet infinity contains every happenstance infinitely...within itse...

Re: Trixie's Thread about Mind.

Can a machine be a true representation of what consciousness is though? If they could, that would make machines conscious...can you see the dilemma? . Science can map the Neural Correlates of Consciousness in the Brain. Science has no idea how the actual Conscious experience happens. Steve, it's be...

Re: Trixie's Thread about Mind.

So science can map, where consciousness is, in the brain? Yes, ever since the advent of the MIR machine. Can a machine be a true representation of what consciousness is though? If they could, that would make machines conscious...can you see the dilemma? . Science can map the Neural Correlates of Co...

Re: Trixie's Thread about Mind.

Ok so the sad thing is, people get old, the older they get the uglier they get, meat-eaters make themselves look ugly with all the meaty testosterone. Now whats interesting about this, is the spiritual connections. Isn't it strange that As the brain gets older, we lose passion and interest in life?...

Re: Pure Consciousness/Proto-Consciousness and Entropy may be the two sides of the same coin

The Inter Mind model proposes that there is a Physical Mind (Brain) existing in Physical Space and a Conscious Mind existing in Conscious Space. We know that Neurons fire in the Physical Mind and we have corresponding Conscious Experiences in the Conscious Mind. No one knows how the Neural firings ...

Re: Intermind beta thread (data gathering help needed)

I discovered this document called the Intermind. I can't remember what thread it was from, but I think someone posted it on this forums. Thank You for the excellent comments. I had hoped that the Inter Mind paper would someday motivate people to attempt some new kinds of studies and experiments. Go...

Re: Neutral Monism: A Saner Solution to the Mind/Body Problem

You're right, but I think you should keep reading the thread, as it's more advanced now. Conscious light results from brain activity triggered by Physical light. Conscious light in dreams results from spontaneous activation of those same brain areas involved in vision. Nothing perplexing here. 1) I...

Re: Neutral Monism: A Saner Solution to the Mind/Body Problem

. I think colour perception to be very poor for discussing mind and decide for neutral monism or whatever else. Colours are a physical phenomenon beyond any doubt. Objects reflect light with different wavelengths and we have the capacity to discriminate some of them in the form of colour. This happ...

Re: The Inter Mind

I hope so. But I see nothing. They only discuss betwixt monism, dualism and something inconsequential in between. Monism doesn't explain the last stronghold of consciousness, Neuroscientist's proto-self, in which dualism might gain ground, but again the proto-self is so little I guess no one will f...

Re: The Inter Mind

I agree that what I say sounds like a Soul. But it is really quite different from the religious Soul which always seems to be a wispy transparent copy of the Physical being. I think the Conscious Mind could be a whole new existence when it is released from the control of the Brain. Scientists shoul...

Re: The Inter Mind

I don't think that if there is some sort of Conscious Memory that it will be a copy of the Physical Memory. Physical Memory is in the Physical domain and deals with Physical Space things, although the Conscious Mind can tap into that. Conscious Memory, if there is such a thing, is in Conscious Spac...

Re: The Inter Mind

1 ) Neural Activity for Red happens 2 ) The Experience of the Color Red happens Science can not say how that Red experience happens when the Neural Activity happens. The Red seems to be some Conscious domain experience. If Red is something that can be explained by known Physics then what is it? Is ...

Re: The Inter Mind

But we can not rule out that the Conscious Mind itself might have some other kind of Memor y that we don't understand yet. I can propose these kinds of things because of our lack of understanding of Consciousness in general. I think however that we can say that Memory that is Brain based will be lo...

Re: The Inter Mind

I'm not so sure Consciousness itself has memory. Seems like Consciousness uses the Brain for memory and the Brain goes away. It would be nice if it could be shown that Consciousness had some sort of memory. x .............................................................................................
