Question by Gremio: rephrased the previous question: are we also chemical, physical and mecanical (beyond biological)?
Are we? I’m not asking about, you know, consciousness, spirit. I’m focusing only on the materialistic point of view. Thanks.

Answer by Sir Crocodile
My personal opinion is that we are firstly chemical and physical, and then biological. Why? Because everything in the word (including all organisms) is made of atoms and the principles of their interactions and way of order (grouping into molecules) is described by physical ideas. Latter on, every single one of our functions is due to constant running of chemical (biochemical) reactions in our body (we are chemical laboratories).

Simply put: we are matter, our bodies are made of atoms and molecules. Even the organic molecules consist of atoms from inorganic world (nitrogen, calcium, magnesium etc). After we die our organic matter is broken down to simple molecules (organic and inorganic) by microorganims. Then “we” (our molecules) enter the cycle of matter – our matterials are used up by plants and microorganisms to create new organic matter that other animals (including humans) consume, then these animals (including humans) enter the cycle. And this is repeated again and again.

Also, it is very important to mention that we are energy (im talking in physical therms, not spiritual). Our energy is never lost, but used up in cycle of matter by other living forms.

Im molecular biologist. Molecular biology applies vast number of ideas, theories and methods taken from physics, chemistry and mathematics. It is a science that applies other natural disciplines ideas and methods to living systems. I have always claimed that without the 3 mentioned disciplines above nowadays biology (covering genetics, biochemistry, physiology, ecology, biophysics etc, with few exceptions, of course) wouldn’t be as high as it is now.

Question by Forgotandloggedout: Consciousness, you believe in consciousness beyond influence of the brain?
Then tell me, WTF is DID (multiple personality disorder.)

If the conscious mind is beyond matter, beyond physical meaning, then why if the brain is damaged we become f^%^*d up?
How can the consciousness be separate from the brain, when there is so much evidence to suggest who we are is how the brain is developed?

I am probably quite drunk, so excuse mistakes. Thank you.

Answer by adagio58
It’s simple. There are three levels of consciousness:

- the conscious mind – responds to information provided by the physical senses
- the subconscious mind – is the Intelligence that fulfils the directions
- the Superconscious mind – is the Director – Absolute and Unchanging

Each level has its allotted tasks to do. If the brain is damaged it will affect the “conscious mind” but does not affect the Superconscious mind which is Spirit, eternal and unchanging. Our higher consciousness (soul-mind) can and does function through our higher senses and are not dependent on the physical body’s brain and nervous system. A recent interesting case is of Anita Moorjani who almost died in hospital, had an OBE (out of body) experience, saw and heard conversations while still in an unconscious state, which proves the point that we can function in a finer body than the physical. See:

Multiple personality disorder can be several conditions but mainly it is the mental wiring that could be in error. A good source of learning is this doctor, one of the best, who makes a study of brain activity:

Art, Reality, and the Brain: The Quest for Aesthetic Universals – Dr. V.S. Ramachandran:

————

You say, evidence suggests who we are is how the brain is developed — that is true, but it is the “persona”, the individual personality (your habits, memories, opinions, likes and dislikes, etc.) that is built up in this manner. The LIFE FORCE (call it what you wish) is not affected. You might like to think of it as a central Electricity which is transformed down to a level that can be used in a light bulb. The light bulb can be smashed but that does not affect the central Source of Electricity itself.

Question by Shay: What to watch next: Beyond Full Metal Alchemist?
So my husband convinced me to watch Full Metal Alchemist and now I’m hooked on anime. Of course the jerk waited until after I finished it to tell me that it was the best and anything else is going to seem sad in comparison. Men.

Where to go from here? Any anime you would consider on par or at least a close runner up to Full Metal? Anime movies would be appreciated too.

Thanks!

Question by Kylias: Does anyone know where I can find episodes 31 and beyond of the anime series Fullmetal Alchemist?
I’ve seen up to episode 30 of Fullmetal Alchemist, but I can’t seem to find episode 31 or anything beyond that anywhere.
It’s very frustrating, because I’ve been stuck here for the past week, after clearing out 9 through 30 in a day.
…(having no life is rather devastating at times, hah~)
