Re: the easy problem of consciousness

One of the hallmarks of good Science is when Scientists can come to a Consensus on the results, so you are just wrong about that. Science is always progressing and if someday it can be shown that Neural Activity does not produce Conscious Experiences then that will be another advance toward underst...

To you. Not to others.

The entire point of interacting with other humans is to figure out how they use their Words and why.
For that you have to listen to the words of other Humans.

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

Skep, I asked you earlier if the officer followed procedure correctly, do you think just-following-orders would be a successful defense, in your opinion. Just curious. He was not simply following an Order to go put his knee on the suspects neck. After sizing up the situation, he made the decision t...

If the dictionary hasn't got any answers, then surely I am much better off asking you how you use your words, no?
How I use words is self evident when I use Words.

Re: The observer cannot be observed

My answer, all your predispositions, unconscious biases, behaviour patterns, personality traits, etc. All of that is beyond your control and determines the choices you “make”. It’s more like your choices make you. But then are you saying that we actually make a Volitional Choice from the Choices? O...

Re: the easy problem of consciousness

There is a science of neurology, (now renamed "neuroscience,") which is the study of the physiological system of the brain and nervous systems. There is no such science as psychology, or the bastard pseudoscience neuropsychology, because consciousnes cannot be studied scientifically. One cannot tak...

Re: the easy problem of consciousness

despite others turnin' their nose up at it, the followin' seems germane... Things like having Mathematical insights may not be properly activated by crude electrical stimulations and epileptic disturbances, the same as say the Experience of Redness. Doesn't mean that even Mathematical insights are ...

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

There is a problem. A man in the custody of law enforcement died while law enforcement was applying force to the man. That’s a problem. Whenever there is a Death there is a full investigation. The Cops are usually put on administrative leave. Just because a suspect dies does not mean the Police did...

Re: the easy problem of consciousness

Scientists have been poking around in live Brains for a Hundred years now and there is in fact Correlation between certain Neurons being stimulated and the Conscious Experiences that subjects report. Science can work in a statistical way. If enough people say they Experience Red when particular Neu...

Re: the easy problem of consciousness

At least I for sure don't know what is going on with Consciousness. And thank the lord for that, the burden has been taken off you in that regard. It's not for you to know, you are already known. You are known by being aka via the direct experience of being consciousness. In essence, you are the kn...

Re: the easy problem of consciousness

It is a fact of Brain Science that specific Neurons Firing result in specific Conscious experiences. Science does not know How this happens. Science can measure the Correlation (the Neural Correlates of Consciousness) between Neurons Firing and Conscious Experience. There is a science of neurology,...

So why is that a "problem"?

What's a "problem" anyway?
Great question.
Why is it "great"?

What is "greatness" anyway?
Yes, these are the Great (TBD) Philosophical questions that need answers.

Re: There is no hard problem of consciousness

You think that because you say that "Consciousness is a Property of the Mind" that you have Explained anything about Consciousness? The very utterance of the words "Consciousness is a Property of the Mind" will launch any inquiring Mind to the next level to then ask: "How is Consciousness a Propert...

When you Race Bait the issue you are sinking to the lowest low of Depravity and Corruption that is at the heart of the Liberal/Media/Politician problem.
