Question by I Love Cheese!: How does something as material and unconscious as matter go on to create something as ?
immaterial as consciousness? Are atoms conscious? Is consciousness an emergent process of lower chemical and biological processes of the brain?
I AM aware of astrophysics, biophysics, and the like. This is why consciousness is so fascinating. As much as people would like to chalk it up to some kind of random act of nature, anyone with a bit of sense can see that it’s not.

Best answer:

Answer by **blah**
why shouldn’t consciousness be just a sense that was activated or created by the mind for survival and communication?

Question by Learner: How do atoms and molecules create consciousness?
How does an engineered collection of atoms and molecules cause consciousness to emerge?
By engineered, I just mean arranged in a specific precise manner.
@Zaphod_Beeblebrox: LOL, I know, but still… :) I had to ask. :)

Answer by Zaphod_Beeblebrox
1) If any of us knew that we’d be shoe-in for a Nobel prize.

2) Who says that atoms and molecules are “engineered” unless you take the view that evolution itself is a form of engineering, albeit a slow and patient one?

Question by Madam Mercy: Why do God related religions create a “conscience” but not “consciousness”?
Many people have the false notion that “conscience” & “consciousness” are the same.

The root is one, but they are 2 separate branches moving in diametrically opposite directions.

“Conscience” IS forced on you by others.

“Consciousness” is an evolution rising from your own depths to the ultimate heights.

Answer by Darrin
Your conscience speaks to you about things of morality, nothing else. How does that happen?
When you steal something, your conscience tells you its wrong. Conscience comes from two words con=with and science=knowledge….So everytime you do something wrong you do it with knowledge that it is wrong………..>

Consciousness just means you are awake or alert or alive…….>

Question by askyourmind: Did matter evolve to create consciousness or did consciousness evolve to create matter?
Said another way, the Spiritual world is said to be nonphysical in nature and exists independently from matter. That is, the physical world would not exist if there was no one (sentient beings) there to perceive it. The Spiritual world is also said to be infinite and not subject to the constraints of linear time, death, or decay.

Conversely, the physical world is defined by its limitations. Everything is composed of the same material, but differences in configuration, finite dimensions and measurable attributes are what distinguish one thing from another. Thus: Spiritual world = infinite. Physical world = finite. Mathematically, we know that the infinite can not be produced from the finite; but, the finite can be produced from the infinite. So, did matter (finite) evolve to create consciousness (infinite) or did Spiritual consciousness and perception (infinite) evolve to create matter (finite)?

Question by locked: How do I create smooth edges using the magic wand?
I am trying to use the magic wand while switching the background that people may have in their pictures. I can easily get the background out of the picture, BUT the people I am trying to move to another background look really choppy because stuff like their arms are not smooth after I make the neccesary cuts.

How to I smooth out the picture of the people? Anti-aliasing is not working with the magic wand! How do i use feathering?

Please help me.

Answer by Daniel G
If your talking about Photo Shop, sometimes using the background eraser tool takes the background out closer to the edge. To smooth out you could use the smudge tool.

Cheers! Dan.
