  3. I’d like to inform

    Science & Psychokinesis

    Fact. I see through the objects:walls,stons,beam,hands,other. I have created images:portraits,animal’s faces on Clouds & Varnish from long distance and to give intentional shape, the area in the clouds must be established before the test.

  4. Thanks very much!

  5. The answer isn’t safe… thats the point. Its only safe when its out of reach by only allowing the question to be important.

    …I’m saying.. if you look towards the answer and not the question, you end up with alot more choices to make for yourself and ultimately become responsible for your own life.

    If you think thats more safe than idly pondering the question with no intent to answer it, you are sadly mistaken.

  6. @HypaSnipa the answer is safe it is out of out reach, doesn’t make it any less worthwhile to grasp for it but ultimately futile

  7. Why d oyou say that? Because the question is safe? Probably.

    You’ll never know I guess..

    (and knowing is all of it)

  8. Fucking Fagoty Shit. Vid won’t run. Illuminati shut you down boy!

  9. Nothin wrong with that, so long as he didn’t do it every day for a month or more lol!

  10. “That’s an opinion, not an answer”? Really. Where is everything that you’re aware of situated? In consciousness maybe? Maybe the whole thing is mental. THINK about it.

  11. @lordofthemystic thats an opinion not an answer.

    the question is more important than the answer

  12. The evidence is in the fact that your brain is where everything else that appears to be physical is, in CONSCIOUSNESS. A mental process.

  13. yeh, like eugenics and dualism.

    what evidence do you have?

  14. - evidence?

    - i would speculate that you are mental :)

  15. Yes, and in fact he was high on LSD when he discovered it. No joke. He admitted to it shortly before passing away.

  16. ah, theorizing observations with old conclusions doesn’t really get anywhere.

  17. Is this the same Francis Crick who worked with Watson in discovering the Double Helix?

  18. Such a snobby fart

  19. He is so far off the mark. He’s looking for consciousness in the brain when the brain itself is nothing more than an appearance in Consciousness. “The All is
    Mind; The Universe is Mental.”

  20. This idea is old news, if all is equal in this existence as it has to be to exist in this reality.
    Thus all things have to experience nothing is void of what we feel or experience, to exist in this reality. Just because we say other wise is just our ego thinking we are the top of what ever we think we are.
    As I say I am no different that other thing as every thing is no different to me.

  21. So essentially the driving force of change, and the reason for our existence, is imagination. Imagination works by creating distorted representations of what already exists. Since this adds new complexity, the process feeds back in a cascade of complexity.

    I feel dirty talking about reality using words like these, but they are the closest approximations to the concepts I’m trying to convey. I hope to develop a mathematical representation some day, even if it requires a new mathematics.

  22. I believe so. I’m thinking that at the pinnacle of the hierarchy, the root, is a non-dualistic and formless consciousness, emptiness maybe, which is within everything. Imagination resides here. Next down is the dualistic division between active (do) and passive (experience), you could say will and perception, give and receive. Everything continues to hierarchically divide, through dimensions we don’t yet know or understand, until you get to the dimensions and complexity that we do.

  23. Just because we dont as yet understand the process by which the seemingly random movement of particles can give rise to consciousness doesnt mean that it doesnt happen.

    Having said that, I must admit that as a student of philosophy i am often plagued by consciousness as it does seem so very different from everything else.

    I am open to the possibility of some kind of monism or some kind of cosmic spirit but as yet I’m still looking for the answers just like everyone else.

  24. I agree. Physics has gotten to the point where it is vindicating things said by Plato and Pythagoras and other ancients: The reality of the universe is not matter or energy or space — those are illusions, shadows cast by the actual reality which is information. Above information are the things studied by math and geometry. Above those, the things pertaining to thought, and mind, and virtue.

  25. Materialism has always been an irrational response given the experience of consciousness. It is magical thinking.
