Re: Do we need consciousness?

How do you know that consciousness is required for the motion of an agent? As I mentioned any decision is made by unconscious mind, therefore, any motion is the result of the unconscious activity (like sleepwalking). Motion does not require Consciousness but intelligent maneuvering around in a comp...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

blah ...blah ...blah I don't have answers for the last two questions. It depends on what is included in the category of Intelligent Entities and the category of Conscious Entities. I don't understand. You made the English claim "Motion does not require Consciousness but intelligent maneuvering arou...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Motion does not require Consciousness but intelligent maneuvering around in a complicated world sure does. What is the relationship, similarity and difference between consciousness and intelligence? Would you say that all intelligent entities are conscious? Would you say that all conscious entities...

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). Scientists can describe the Neural Activity that occurs in the Brain when we S...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

Electromagnetic Phenomena, Firing Neurons, the Red Experience, and the Number 00FF0000 are completely different kinds of Data. Photon contains and transmits information. Neuron firing contain and tranmit information. Color variable in software contains information. What does experience do with info...

Re: Do we need consciousness?

The Conscious Visual experience is the thing that allows us to move around in the world. Robots and worms can move around in the world. You are talking about awareness without explaining why it needs to be accompanied by _subjective_ or 1st person experience, as opposed to just have signals and inf...

Re: Free will and things I dont see anyone has noticed

There's no such thing as a soul or consciousness, or any other such misconception of some mystical thing. There is no body/mind problem. It's just the way the organic machine works. Humans, and all animals for that matter, are simply recording devices, albeit not very accurate, especially over the ...

Re: Nothing Higher Than Human Sentient Awareness

"It's difficult to believe in the dreadful but quiet war, lurking just below the serene facade of nature." Charles Darwin Existence is a brief fever dream between two eternities of slumber.

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

Yep, one is the loneliest number, from one all else comes, many of the one, lonely, but not. The mind is an empty mirror ball. If there is only one Conscious Self then I must be it. You must be just part of my Hallucination. I know I am not a Hallucination. Very good that is exactly how I would say...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

In the context of Consciousness we do not know if it Exists in the Physical World or Exists only in the Conscious World of our Minds. Of course we know. You just introduced the word "minds" into the discussion in order to obfuscate the matter further. P1. The Universe is ALL that exists ( Universe ...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

If Redness exists IF Redness exists? Why are you saying IF? Are saying that it's possible redness doesn't exist? Maybe you should explore that scenario also? in the Physical World There's no need to say that. IF something exists, it exists in the physical world. Where else would it exist? In the co...

Re: Insane Denial Of Conscious Experience

The two Realms obviously Exist as separate things Obviously how? If Redness exists in the Physical World then is it made out of Energy, Matter, or is it some aspect of Space? If it is none of these things then it is not part of the Physical Universe as Science knows it. the question that arises is ...
