How do you justify the belief that other people have minds?
This has long been a problem in philosophy. How do I know I am not the only mind? Or that most people I know aren't zombies? Without access to others' minds it seems I can't be certain. But most act as if it is common sense. How do you get past this problem?
Well, I don't know that other people are anything other than a construct of the matrix of my reality. I get past it by knowing that either way it does not matter, it is still my reality. It's my game and if I am playing with a bunch of avatars or thinking beings I am the beneficiary in either scenario, so who cares. I do believe other people have "minds" btw, well most of them anyway.
Human brains are complex.
We all do not think alike. Unless we have common goals to allow our minds to focus on one matter otherwise it will unlikely for anyone to be able to diagnose what is in one's mind.
What we need will be a strict layout objective to put our minds in a common ground.
So that way we do not need to fear what others might not be doing or thinking.
You don't get passed it. unless you're thinking of reading minds.. in that case, please let me know! xD. I can tell you I have a mind.. but I can't prove it. Neither can you. How can I know YOU have a mind?... well.. if you want to question everything.. then.. WHAT EXACTLY IS A MIND? You can start by questioning the very concept of "mind". Everything is "mind". Every person is a world.. everyone has a unique perspective.
Most people are all alike with many differences. I would just except others on an individual bases,
Would a zombie - if such a creature could exist - realize that it is a zombie ?
On the contrary, MIND is a scientific term for intelligence and another word for what we call, the BRAIN.
SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE was not included in scientific equations of our existence.
They have a shiny new car....without a motor.
INTELLIGENCE is SPIRITUAL,and the brain(mind) is fundamental constituents of MATTER. One is known as flesh,and the other as" Spiritual Celestial Existence".
How they exist,one within the other is what tied the knot in scientific equations.

This is, essentially, the belief that from one god, two other divinities (deities) emerge and co-exist or in theological terms, they are a, One that is All and All that is One, a consubstantial existence of...

If the perception of "God" and "Satan" is just in the mind, molded and adapted to the individual's needs, could the acceptance of this change the way we address each other? Could listening to the other person's understanding/belief; warming to his/her need; trying to...
