Knowledge is pattern, thinking is pattern formation

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

Knowledge is pattern cognition. Thinking is pattern implication.

Here's the sort of thing I was talking about: eodnhoj7 just posted "All Being is Free Relative to Void" --that's good fodder for a cult, just like "Knowledge is pattern, thinking is pattern formation." I don't think or post gobbledygooky balderdash like that, otherwise I'd be up for being a co-leader of a cult with you (as long as we also promote lots of casual sex within the cult, otherwise I'd still not be into it.)

Or like not believing in the subconscious mind.

Comparative shortness is only situationally irrelevant.

Are you making thought or it is formed and comes to you from the very depth of your mind?

First content, then form. The form of the content can vary. Six words is as rigid a form as a four-sided frame that borders a painting expressing the same content as the words.

When bound by the limitations of frame or word count, when bound by a frame work, thinking about the medium rather than the content is required to fit the content into the frame. Even that whacky Jackson Pollock was bound by form, which he transcended.

Because of any particular medium's limitations, reception of a content-transmission can change cognition of the content so that, for example, celestial music may sound like nails on a blackboard to a tin ear, whereas a tuned ear will transcend the transmission right to the essence.

Of course, there is mingling of form and content; the boundaries separating the two are as "created" as the boundary separating life and consciousness. When the transmission is right, form and content are inseparable, and the same content can be inseparable from another form. The form derives from the content, and the content is identified rather than formed, identified by awareness peering through a portal of consciousness into the one mind.

However, expression of the content is formed, and that form must be pattern formation, for even chaos is patterned although unrecognized as such.
