The Scientific Explanation for why Everything is Everywhere

    Haveniteposted 5 years ago

    Think of a chair in your mind. Where is that chair in your mind? It is everywhere in your mind. There is no where it cannot be in your mind.

    What is outside the earth? - The Solarsystem
    What is outside the solar system? - The universe
    What is outside the universe? - More universe
    What is outside the...

    This quandary has kept many a mind awake at night ever since people have believed that the body creates the mind rather than believing that the mind creates the body.

    The body is finite and isolated. Viewing the universe as being like this will inevitably lead to the confusion stated above.

    The mind however is infinite and therefore cannot be isolated. In your mind you can move in any direction you like without ever stopping. To view the universe in the same way ends the confusion of the inability to understand space (galactic or general) without borders.

    The chair is not in your mind.  A brain is not a magical object-creating device.

    Some people think the universe is endless.  Others think is has boundaries beyond which there is endless nothing. Whether this or some other theory is true has no implication for what you do here on earth.

    The "mind" is a name for self-awareness which is an emergent property of the brain.  There is no actual object called "the mind".  It is something the brain does.  Like legs do walking and sun does shining. Not only is it not limitless, it doesn't exist as all other than as an action of the brain.

    I don't know why any of this confuses you. Perhaps you need to read more Wittgenstein.

      The mind is absolutely endless. You can move in an upwards direction in your mind and never stop. Just one of the many limitless things the mind can do.

      There is no actual object called "the mind".

      The mind is a subject that creates objects.

      By the way could you give me a clinical scientific definition of endless nothing?

        I don't need to because the mind does not exist in a literal sense.  It is a reification of an action, a myth.  Much like we attribute breakages to gremlins, or inspiration to muses.  The action (thinking) is real but it occurs on the brain, the reifiation (mind) is a no more real than leprechauns or thunderbirds.

          Reification of action - like thought/thinking?
          Reification - like space or time or energy?

            re·ify
            transitive verb \ˈrā-ə-ˌfī, ˈrē-\
            : to regard (something abstract) as a material or concrete thing

            To regard an action as an action (time, thinking) is not reification.
            To regard an action as an object is.

              What about thought, space and energy?
              Does actions occur or exist?
              How does one know whether the given word is an object or concept?
              I was not disputing but clarifying.
              Dict: Real:- Actually existing as a thing.

                You really need to get a dictionary.

                Real : the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or may be thought to be.

                  And you really need comprehension skills. He was stating "The action(thinking) is real".
                  So, are you stating  that 'thinking' is a thing that actually exists?

    The mind is not endless.  Composed of the interactions of a finite number of brain cells, the number of possibilities for interactions is definitely limited and so is the mind.  While the number is very, very large it is not infinite.

      I said the mind was limitless not the brain. You can move in any direction in your mind and never stop. That is an example of limitlessness. If a film maker were allowed to live forever then they could make film after film. Another example of limitlessness. Although in any case the brain is physically unlimited in the micro sense as you can continuously divide up particles into more particles and those particles again into more particles and so on. I.E. you split the atom and discover you have neutrons and electrons. Then you can work on splitting them, and then whatever is inside them. In any case if the brain reflects the universe then it is clearly endless as the universe is endless:

        As that image didn't come out so well this video demonstrates the idea better and that the visible physical world is truly created by the invisible mind.

          There is nothing but denial of many scientific theories in favor of God. Gibberish.

          You mind is not a place.  It is the activity of your brain. Saying it is limitless is like saying you eyes are as large the distance you can see, or your ears go to moon when you hear the words of an astronaut.  It just isn't true.  but you will never understand that there is a different between what an organ can do and the space is occupies..

    A good book to read is called "Who's in Charge?: Free Will and the Science of the Brain"

    Says something about the whole is more than the sum of its parts. I like that idea.

    The mathematical explanation you gave is EFE, and I said it is a DESCRIPTION of warped space. I didn't ask a description and any how, you said it is not warped space that cause gravity, but the earth accelerating to the ball.
    http://mathworld.wolfram.com/EinsteinFi … tions.html
    The Einstein field equations are the 16 coupled hyperbolic-elliptic nonlinear partial differential equations that describe the gravitational effects produced by a given mass in general relativity

    Do you even understand what irrational means? In fact do you know anything other than parroting.

    If you can read, the equation does not explain HOW GRAVITY WORKS. IT DOES NOT EXPLAIN  WHY A BALL DROPPED FROM YOUR HAND GO TO THE SURFACE OF EARTH AND NOT TOWARDS THE SKY.
    IF YOU(RELATIVITY) CAN'T EXPLAIN THAT, WHY YOU CALL YOURSELF A SCIENTIST?


    Who cares? I'm taking down my account.
    First unlike you, I'm using my proper name, not a pen name. My name is Jomine. The idiotic moderators banned me from posting on forums because they take offense for every word, so I created jomine9, which is my email id, just to answer -pschyeskinner, but I found him no different than you.
    Steven pinker and Kahneman after  years of research found that the modes of human thinking are preset. You are born to be a believer and no amount of reasoning can change that, you will just parrot nonsense. And my own experience in hubpages showed that the morons will never think but simply regurgitate what is taught them. I came here in search of some answers and I got it. So why should I waste any more of my time? I'm off. You believers can continue argue whose god is best. If you gain upper-hand then you can start start burning at stake, the scientists.
