Question by Rickapotamus1: yu gi oh different dimension capsule ruling with dimensional alchemist?
if my different dimension capsule gets destroyed i know i can’t get that card back and it gets removed from play but what if i have a dimensional alchemist and he gets destroyed can i get the card that got removed from play with dimensional alchemist?

Best answer:

Answer by instantly_oatmeal
No, because the removed from play card from Different Dimension Capsule is face-down. Thus, it is unknown to be a monster, spell, or trap. Dimensional Alchemist specifically states that it has to be a removed from play monster card that goes back to your hand.

Question by Think!: Is consciousness part of a different dimension entirely?
you know like maybe the 4th dimension? or the 5th? I need to think.. an array of questions just popped into my head (all focusing around consciousness) which I do not have the answers to, it’s giving me quite the head ache.

Best answer:

Answer by LobarCybertronic v.1.0
It could be. Although no one really even knows what consciousness is or where it comes from! It’s one of the biggest mysteries of our universe!

I was just thinking about consciousness last night, and what makes your consciousness yours and not someone elses, and whether the consciousness you have now is the same consciousness you had a few years ago (I’m talking as if it’s seperate from memories), and whether if you die and are resurrected, if it would still be YOU (your consciousness) or someone else experiencing your brain processes.

Consciousness could be construed as the “soul” in some cases, and souls would be on a different dimension I think.

You should ask this in the Philosophy section too.

Question by : Is it hard to switch majors from different subject areas?
Hey there, my intended major in college, which I start the coming fall, is Political Science. I don’t know if I am going to drop it, but I want to include neuroscience. They are both part of the Liberal Arts and Sciences College in my university. So is it hard to switch or add majors from different subject areas or no? I have taken AP Bio, AP Gov, AP Calc, AP English Lang, and AP World History by the way.

Best answer:

Answer by SouthernGrace
No it is not hard..but depending on how many hours you have already put in I wouldn’t suggest it.

I switched from being a nurse to a teacher and all of my classes I took towards nursing didn’t help me at all towards a teaching degree so now I am very much behind in college…it added another year and a half onto my graduation date.

Question by Soshi Uso: What anime is different from its manga counterpart?
I’m talking about rather major changes.
For instance: Bleach has its filler arcs, but remains faithful to the manga all the same.

However, Full Metal Alchemist split off completely and introduced new characters, ultimately ending long before the manga and in (likely) a completely different fashion.

If the anime just left information out of the manga, that’s not worth mentioning (too many series do that). I’m looking more for new things appearing in the anime.

Best answer:

Answer by ~Nerdielicious ^_^x~
Well, Rurouni Kenshin is one.

Instead of going to the BEST part, where we see the awesome death scene’s and life of Kenshin’s past, we get fillers!
….Yay us!


And, if anyone has heard of Tenchi Muyo OVA’s, there is a manga. Written and drawn BEFORE the 3rd OVA came out.

The manga is amazing.
The 3rd OVA is PURE…

Crap. ^_^”

And obviously Death Note..
And don’t get me started on Inuyasha..

Alot of people dislike Inuyasha because they just think.. meh, its overrated, they hate Kagome, hate Kikyo, Naraku sucks, Inuyasha sucks, blah blah..

Well, In the manga, the characters have different personalities, believe it or not.
Well, to me, they do. They seem tougher and more serious, and kick a** in the manga then the anime.

So, making the TV show so cheesy and CRAPPY, they think Inuyasha.. sucks.

Question by The Godfather: What’s the different between mind, consciousness, awareness, cognition?
When philosophers and scientist talk about mental stuff, what’s the difference between mind, consciousness, awareness, and cognition?

Best answer:

Answer by love dolly
awareness” is also used to describe the kind of “knowing” that comes from the use of the thinking mind when trying to solve problems or figure out what’s going on…such as “I am now aware that when I say these words in this way, many people in this group may be offended by how I have expressed myself.” In that sense, “awareness” is “coming to an understanding” of something that isn’t stated outright, OR that you cannot understand because of the limits of your perceptual abilities, due to your prejudices, blind spots, lack of knowledge and information, the miscommunication of others, etc. But it’s directly related to the world of the 5 senses and is a product of our mental processes…thinking.

•Mind is the aspect of intellect and consciousness experienced as combinations of thought, perception, memory, emotion, will, and imagination, including all unconscious cognitive processes.

Conscious: a quality of the mental life of the ego. The ego uses consciousness to manage reality, which includes allowing pleasurable id gratifications that don’t collide with everyday demands or provoke the “thou shalt not”s of the superego.
Counter-transference: the therapist’s transference projections–in other words, enactment of old conflicts from the family of origin–onto the patient. Example: when “Anna O” (Bertha Pappenheim) fell in love with Freud’s partner Josef Breuer, he fled because the situation aroused intolerable emotions in him. (For an example of Freud’s countertransference, see his Dora paper.) The meaning of countertransference has broadened since Freud’s time to include all the therapist’s reactions toward the patient.

cognitive- a term that describes the process people use for remembering, reasoning, understanding, and using judgment

Question by Jason Owen: What if consciousness and energy were actually just different terms to describe the same thing?
(This was originally intended to be an answer to a question which was removed before I could post)

In that case, the religious and non-religious could both be right. It’s a theory which is growing in popularity that reality is just as beauty; in the eye of the beholder. In the case of religion, there are plenty of valid arguments for and against the possibility or likelihood of a supreme god.

Whether or not the energy (or consciousness) is infinite or not is an interesting question, but ultimately irrelevant, no?

Best answer:

Answer by hindu monk
Good question,u need to a have a deeper enquiry into it

Every morning and night go into silence or deep meditation, for meditation is the only way to discriminate between truth and error.

Paramahansa Yogananda
Some like to believe that there are over hundred techniques of meditation; each lingering at a different level, each manifesting its influence on the consciousness at a different pace.

The world over, many have confused meditation with concentration and relaxation with meditation. Techniques using music, dance, other forms of creative expression, an array of therapies (both physical and mental), have all been synchronised into one basket – Meditation!

But truly speaking, many of these work more at the intellectual level while others are only channels for relaxation and prepare you for the more serious stages of true meditation. From the point of view of the advanced Yogis, meditation really is a scientific technique for communion with God, and is the seventh step (dhyanai) in Patanjali’s eightfold path. To a host of new age and other spiritualists, however, techniques that encourage you to manifest mindfulness and be aware also fall under the gamut of meditation.

Meditation when done scientifically draws back into the central part of our body the spine and the brain the life current distributed throughout the various organs of the body, thereby magnetising these two very central parts (spine and brain) which in the astral body are also home to the seven chakras…ultimately leading the distributed energy back to their original centers of distribution. This really results in one experiencing oneself as Light. It is in this state that one’s physical self, consciously manages to free itself from the chords of its bodily and mental distractions.

Amidst the varying opinions and tastes, not to forget the pressures of modern day living and the multitude of diverse inner personalities cum spiritual interests, it might only seem prudent to encourage individuals to choose that form of meditation which seems appropriate to their own nature, feelings, and the goal they really seek to attain from their spiritual practices. Apropos, there are Hindu techniques, Buddhist techniques, techniques from other religions, and even those that do not belong to any religion in particular. We thus can also seem to have one or more universal forms of meditation.

Just as one moves from kindergarten to school to college to a Bachelor’s level and then onward, perhaps, to a post-graduate platform, so too in the realm of spiritual practices each one of us is drawn to and imbues practices and techniques as may be appropriate to our inner development. This is why some persons indulge in worship of deities, some prefer to seek God through mantra practices, and many others believe in relating with the formless One.

In the initial search one may be initiated into the path through the medium of simple techniques relating to meditation on objects, images, etc., but as one genuinely progresses and ardently calls out to the Divine to reveal Itself, one is definitely guided on to the one right approach as may behove one’s current spiritual personality.

Dear one, whatever be the technique that you practice, seek to do it in wisdom and with an understanding of the science behind your physical and subtle (energy) bodies. The benefits of all activity done with the intention of freeing the soul from bondage are manifold, and anything done with awareness and attention will only nurture deeper and faster success.

In our presentation here, we attempt to give credence to the importance of scientific methods in meditation and yet present some more simple techniques for the benefit of a beginner or one not yet wholly groomed on the path. Meditation is for both the atheist and the theist. It is concerned with awakening the realisation of the Self within, and is therefore beneficial to all and sundry
