Dozenal: IN ANSWER TO THE EARLIER QUESTION: THE SOUTH AMERICANS MENTIONED ABOVE COUNTED ON THE SEGMENTS (PHALANGES) OF THE FINGERS. IF ONE USES THE THUMB AS A POINTER, ONE CAN EASILY COUNT TO TWELVE ON ONE HAND. INCIDENTALLY, WHEREAS THE BASIS OF ALMOST EVERY SYSTEM OF COUNTING WAS THE RESULT OF BIOLOGY, THE BABYLONIANS WERE THE ONE CIVILIZATION THAT INTELLIGENTLY DEVELOPED A NUMBER BASE — BASE SIXTY. IF TWELVE HAS THE ADVANTAGE OF THE FACTORS 2, 3, 4, AND 6,

Road to ruin

Perdition

Mr Ted>why can’t you just study the behaviour of the plant on its own without cluttering the experiment with earth, air, fire [heat] and water?

Plato>In classical thought, the four elements Earth, Water, Air, and Fire

Frost>Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both

eLG>Plato forgot to tell Aristotle earth, wind, fire and water come from Aether

At this point in history we took the wrong road.

This is the problem people. Everything since plato is wrong. Everything. Nothing is salvageable. Nothing. W e must go back to this point in history and start thinking outside the box.  Am I the only one that can see this?

My minds work differently from those of other people’s. One could say I have a closer rapport with my sub-conscious. Most have no rapport. Most that do, hide it. With this rapport comes an exagerrated sense of body language, which enables me to “read” people, which is why I can say that most people have no rapport with their subconscious. To me, they are half-witted, literally. Mentally mutilated. I do not think of myself as smarter, but them as dumber. All of the centered I speak to are of the same opinion.

About 15 years ago I began taking atenolol for a heart condition. One of the known side effects of this drug is lucid dreaming. That’s not really what’s happening. The drug allows us to remember the lucid dreams that were always there. (follow the link) I have posted the first 50 or so of these dreams in a seperate blog AtenololDreams if you’re curious.

One of the main characters in these dreams is Ann (ANN?), the only character (besides myself) who is aware that it is a dream. We speak of many things, Ann and I. In one dream I recall a conversation about the “self'”. I said “I think, therefore I am” she replied “No, I think, therefore you are”

Hmm! So where am I going with this? I am of the opinion that the brain is entirely too simple a mechanism for thought to originate in it, and that it is an organ which was created/evolved/unfolded that concentrates the consciousness that was always there.

We only think we’re thinking.

CR Toy

Reading poli’s paper Paper He is exactly right in his description of the problem. He is exactly wrong in his analysis of it. This is disheartening. consider the above toy cash register. It has a double row of keys and a row of leaves that pop up when you push the appropriate key. the red key drops the leaves and the crank opens the drawer. The primary cause/effect is if you push the top left key the left leaf pops up. etc for the rest. Then here comes numbers, and we put these numbers on the keys and the appropriate leaves. now we can say “when we push the .01 key the .01 leaf pops up.” But we forget that we are the ones that put the numbers on the keys, and forget the primary relationship. So we end up with a situation where physicists, for example, perform mathematical operations on the numbers on the keys to try to understand the mechanics of the toy. It’s insane. But neither is reality. The reality, assuming this were a real cash register, is that someone came in and bought something. This someone is extrinsic. the mechanics and the numbers are intrinsic.

There are two seperate but synchronous things happening in the cash register which reflect reality. The only difference between the cash register and the brain is the brain has 100 billion leaves and 100 billion keys. We think that we are in charge of the cash register, we are not (unless we’re thieves) we think we are thinking when we ring up the sale. we are not. we are only reacting to the guy handing us cash.

No matter how we arrange the keys, nor what symbols we put on them. It ain’t real. Reality, and only reality is real.

incomprehensible in their scale,

Thought

What is a thought? There’s a lot of definitions of thought, but they all center on how thoughts act, not what they are. I’m gonna posit that a thought is coherrent chemical activity in the brain, at least as it applies to humans. Hmm! This brings up the question of: “Where does this coherrence come from?”

GOD! shouts the majority. Universe, shouts a significant minority. And there are others, karballah, great mysterious, wave nature etc. What all these have in common is “Something “up there” is causing something “down here” (material world)”

But people think backwards. Something down here is causing something up there. Consider the water molecule. H2O. If you’re speaking of the ocean without the water molecule you got squat. How can you even begin to talk about the ocean without understanding the water molecule. I don’t mean it’s particle nature, that’s knowledge, but it’s wave nature, that’s understanding. Even then, one is a shadow of a shadow and the other a shadow of reality. The shadows are, in and of themselves, real however. Until what’s happening inside the skull gets sorted out there’s no point going any further.

I agree with pythagoras that the universe is harmonic in nature (negentropic)

So, unless you’re ready to tell me what change in which law of the universe would cause geese to fly in the x formation, we’re not ready to talk intrinsic/extrinsic.

Beware the black swan.

As always, under construction

Trojan

Fairy

Why are people dumb? The first sentence I wrote in an attempt to explain how the mind works is “When considering what is happening in the mind, it is necessary to consider everything that is happening to the mind which is everything.” ANN Why is this not obvious? Why is this not obvious at every level of cognition? At every scale? On any topic. What is it with this PTIB syndrome mankind seems to be afflicted with?

I had intended to write this post about what is wrong with the way the 3 body problem question is asked. Consider the first hit I got, a paper by Poli on analysis-systhesis. He’s right by times and wrong by times, but that is not the focus of my attention. He is analyzing synthesis. He complains of the inadequacy of analysis then IMMEDIATELY begins taking apart the put together thingie. How bizzarre, it borders on insanity.  What is wrong with cognition?  Half the world can’t analyze, half the world can’t synthesize and half the world can’t do either.

Using his words, the left mind is an analysis machine, the right mind is a synthesis machine both used to make sense of reality, whatever that reality may be at the moment. Reality and only reality is real.

Scientists talk of quantum mechanics and yoga speaks of nirvana. Both think they are talking of reality, they are not! they are talking of analysis and synthesis. Plato had it right, logos and mythos are our way of evaluating the aether. Logos and mythos are intrinsic, the aether is extrinsic. What else needs to be said? What is so friggin complicated? This is baby talk.

As to the three body problem. It can’t be solved by analysis. Well, OK, use synthesis. How? Dunno. I prefer to leave math and physics to people who are interested in such things.

Or………..blame the trojan fairy.

I despair

“An animated image shows a collision between two subatomic particles embedded in our 3-D universe (or “brane”). The collision produces other particles, including a graviton that escapes from our brane into the extradimensional “bulk” that lies beyond.”

Found Here> Unexplained

This is what I’m talking about. The Aristotelian Brain Fart focuses attention on the sub-atomic particles. If, however, attention were focused on the “ripples” it wouldn’t be unexplained.

This has nothing to do with physics or math, but how the mind’s analyze problems.

That’s as succinct as I can get it.
