    Consciousness should be impossible

    Thanks for the references to Lanza and Parsons. I'm studying them and their perspectives. It will take a while. Thumbs up.

    Consciousness should be impossible

    The "link" you posted doesn't go anywhere. Amazon has a "look inside" feature which I'll look at later. The wiki article on Robert Lanza generally dismisses his theory. Do you have a representative youtube video you can post? Here's the Amazon link...

    Consciousness should be impossible

    My understanding of nondualism which may not be correct is that "I", which would be equivalent to Thetan in scn, is a timeless observer without fixed identity watching the endless "now" go by. A skeptic might say that that is just a conditioned state of mind. Some sects of Buddhism give...

    Consciousness should be impossible

    This video came up and I watched most of it. Since it's familiar material I sped up the playback. She had some interesting things to say and even though it's the same basic ideas the different teachers have their own unique way of expressing them. It looks like she is active and keeps a busy...

    Consciousness should be impossible

    Every once in awhile I like to post this quote from Ken Wilber. As a New Age philosopher he has plenty of critics but currently has a group called Integral Life which has a lot of followers. Somehow I inadvertently ended up on their email list and get notices about various courses they offer...

    Consciousness should be impossible

    Consciousness as related to quantum physics/mechaniics. Now there's a brain/neuron twister for you! Interesting discussion.🤔 A less scientific discussion once occurred on Rathbun's blog. A couple of people were debating about whether or not a thetan has "a tiny bit of mass". Elron said there...

    Consciousness should be impossible

    Along that line of thought might be the beginning or initial moment or moments of self consciousness. Omitting parentheses on everything and using scn terminology my co-auditor had a metaphor he called the "Sea of Theta" which I liked and adopted. That would be like a sea of champagne with each...
