Re: Dispute my claim: consciousness, a definition

The problem I have with this definition is, if all information flow were conscious, we would be conscious of everything in our brains, however what is conscious is just the very tip of the iceberg.

Re: Is Clear the Opposite of Directed?

The purpose of your posts Bill if there is one, to me, is to force us to reflect and search for meaning, even if there is none. However what normally happens is we roll our eyes, scroll, scroll, scroll, and try to guess what crazy ass picture will confront us.

Re: Anxiety of Dying

I've never died before, nor known anyone who has lived to tell the tale, but I would imagine there would be some common things, fear of nothingness/the unknown, sadness, contentedness, feelings of awe, maybe calmness in some cases. I'm sure it varies depending on a persons life they lived, their sta...

Re: Is Clear the Opposite of Directed?

Sorry bill but I agree that most if not all of what you post here is mainly new age BS, meant to seem enlightening but actually devoid of any meaning or usefulness, followed by much wasted post space, a few full stops and a strange and usually completely unrelated picture or off putting gif. If you ...

Re: Planet We - A new approach towards the meaning of life

Dear dimebag, i recommend that you read my post Planet We - The 2nd visit in addition. There you will see how the planet model and an alternative god concept are connected. :) Ok, but what does this have to do with the meaning of life, and do you really think there is a single meaning to life, some...

Re: Planet We - A new approach towards the meaning of life

I don't really get this topic, and why such a grand metaphor could be useful to us in any way? How does this collection of cooked up ideas add anything to anyone? It is, I'll give you, very creative and thoughtful, but beyond that, I can't see much more that it brings to an understanding of the univ...

Re: The metaphysics of objects

I'm not sure the connectedness of multiple things is sufficient to be called an object. Is a bike an object? I would say yes. Is a team an object? A team of people are connected by information which passes through the air in the form of pressure waves, or sound. Or can be separated even further and ...

Re: Mind over Body...

Mind, consciousness, thought. Notions so ill-defined that one could discuss for hours about them without being able to reach a conslusion. I like more to think of in more simple terms: material and immaterial. Our body and brain and material. And there seems to be something immaterial controlling t...

Re: Pure Consciousness?

The problem here is that of emergence. How can 'new features' come from more simple interactions. The thing is, if we can understand how simple interactions lead to more complex phenomena, even retroactively, we must admit that those simple interactions lead to the more complex phenomenon. We might ...

Re: Internet Pornography

As god has shown us, we need total freedom so that when we do something wrong of our own free will, we can be blamed for it and in turn, punished forever :| . But in all seriousness, limiting freedoms is not a good way to go, unless it is going to save lives. Our life is already rather limited alrea...

Re: Sciense is a religion by itself.

Situation. Please, look at 10 points again. At first I speak about Vacuum, Photon, Electron by formulas . Today we don't know what Vacuum, Photon, Electron are. Therefore is possible many speculations speaking about them. Take my work as one more speculation and try to understand what Vacuum, Photo...

Some opinions

I recently stumbled across a blog on the topic of ethics, where the author discusses how emotion should play a part in guiding ethical decisions. It seemed like an interesting concept, as there doesn't seem to be any kind of general consensus regarding the topic. I am personally undecided on the iss...

Re: Sciense is a religion by itself.

Questions. 1. Can Vacuum ( Vacuum: T=0K, E= ∞ , p= 0, t=∞ ) be fundament / basis for the Universe as a whole? 2. Can virtual / ideal / potential particles with such parameters as : C/D=pi=3,14, R/N=k, E/M=c^2, h=0, c=0, i^2=-1, e^i(pi)= -1. exist in the Vacuum ( Vacuum: T=0K, E= ∞ , p= 0, t=∞ ) 3. ...

Re: Sciense is a religion by itself.

We all know the universe changes with time, therefore the future is likely not to resemble the past, just look at images of early galaxies compared to more recent ones. This req...

Re: Sciense is a religion by itself.

Sciense is a religion by itself. Why? Becouse the God can create and govern the Universe only using physical laws, formulas, equations. Here is the scheme of His plan. =. God : Ten Scientific Commandments. 1. Vacuum: T=0K, E= ∞ , p= 0, t=∞ . 2. Particles: C/D=pi=3,14, R/N=k, E/M=c^2, h=0, c=0, i^2=...
