A Philosophy of Mind

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

I agree, many were just straight abuse, but many were just pointing out that interacting with others about ones thoughts is a norm in philosophy. Not that I don't think she replied in her own way in some replies, nor that in some she actually had a conversation, but upon the whole she just repeated her words, much like Bill in fact. Or she went straight to abuse.

Revolting?
Try checking the way she was treated, I think that is revolting. So sad that all she was doing is writing the FACTS. It seems to me that some people were of her envious of her knowledge. She was pushed out and now it's all of our losses because her knowledge shall go elsewhere. (The Camel.)..The straw is insignificant, hence why it is useless. Get it!? Good. Her work is outstanding. It should be taught in schools because it is knowledge, truth, power & history. Unfortunately some people can't act right and treated her like an armed criminal coming after their families. You can call that the straw if you want, I happen to see it as cast iron plate. I didn't push her out of here. I just voiced my opinion. If you find that revolting that's on you.

So which are your threads IAM , I have about 4 currently ,
I missed your ones , what are they again ,
would we bother , if you started your own thread ,
maybe then you would realize the value of your posts ,
you might find nobody bothers to join you , and your straw thinking ,
I chatted with Barbara for awhile, but didn't feel the need to ,
drive her away and soil her thread ,
what would your thread be called , be about , what are you into,,??

I think you're a bit over zealous in your approximation of the facts of her torment. You do realize you an ignore people here, right?.

I suppose it looks that way, but this is a Forum, not a Blog site. And basically what she was doing is using the Forum as a place to unload her stream of consciousness. People were puzzled that she did not really respond or participate in discussions
As she has her own site (which I shall take a look at), I think what she does may well be more suited to that than this.
