Re: Organic Food

Oh no no no no ... no! We're not adding black holes to the equation ... just yet. :mrgreen: I have this intution that consciousness has a lot more to do with the functionality of particular physical systems than the atoms they contain. The atoms---in bunches of molecules that make up cells---get rep...

Re: Organic Food

I've been smoking wrapped organic shit, too. That shit can make you think! :mrgreen: On a serious note, I'm also that ageless putty. We are consciousness, so, in a sense, we are the same---we just have different perspectives. Our contents of consciousness differ as well, because the what it is like ...

Re: Organic Food

This is redolent of the late Derek Parfitt's thought experiment which I posted on 'The Shocking Truth' thread: And then there is the riddle of the self which philosopher Derek Parfit once emphasised in the following thought experiment: Imagine a teleportation device that can beam people from Earth t...

Re: Organic Food

What is real and what isn't is based on our unreliable memories.  ( How do you know you were not created a moment ago, and all your memories are implanted?!  ) Like the film Multiplicity starring Michael Keaton.

Re: Existential Rant Place

I came across the following comment online by Ali Kunta Mahuna: 'The Holocaust is overrated.' I asked him why he'd say something like that and he replied, 'Genocide is Australia and Tasmania, North America. German people killed over 6million Himba people of Namibia. Belgium slaughtered more than 10m...

Re: Organic Food

A dose of healthy scepticism doesn't hurt. One thing is for sure: taming the mind is one of the hardest things anyone can do.

Re: Organic Food

Even with hypnotism, it is all about mnemonics. I don't doubt the construction worker's story. But notice how such stories are emphasised with one-sided interpretations. The fella got the number of bricks right because hypnosis enabled him to accurately recall the building of the wall---it couldn't ...
