Do you create the universe, the universe creates you, or both?
It could be said that you create everything you see and sense by your mental interpretation. If it takes the mind to determine all physical reality, would it take a mind to build all physical reality? If it wouldn't take a mind to build physical reality, why is a mind needed to determine physical reality?
You know, I really do not have a clue. However, I find your line of questioning to be the most intriguing. Imagine our world a matrix of our vivid imaginations. That means that somehow our collective body of minds are somehow interconnected. That we on some level must be telepathic.
You know the government has been documenting telepathic science studies for years. In one of their projects, they take a person and have them concentrate on a particular building in Russia, France, anywhere and they show them an aerial view of the building for a brief minute or two.
The government has proven that people have the capabilities to look inside the bldg, give exact details of the interior (like what pictures are hung on a wall to where the phone is setting on a particular desk), along with giving details of conversation that was taking place during that particular moment. It is as if the person sitting in the chair in the USA is channeling inside the mind of someone who is walking the halls in a bldg over in Russia lets say. Really amazing stuff, furthermore, if this theory has any weight to it, I think that this study is a direct link to providing data. Which I think is an amazing possibility. Don't you?
Thank You. That is pretty amazing stuff, it is hard for me to even imagine how it's possible, but I can imagine it being possible. I have a pretty good idea there are a few undiscovered senses we have, but don't realize yet. I don't know about thought frequency and if that has anything to do with it, but it seems possible considering we can often predict or be close to predicting how someone is thinking or feeling, or what they are thinking by how they are acting or feeling.
Yeah- deep stuff. But if everyone is seeing the "pyramids" the same way, in relationship to the theory mentioned, then we must be interconnected somehow for it to be the same. Do you see what I'm trying to get to?
Actually, the cold war remote veiwing experiments were killed by congress in the eighties after years of questionable success, the experiments were carried out by the CIA and was the inspiration for the movie "The Men Who Stare At Goats"
Thanks. You make a strong point. So do you think the universes creation is stronger independent of individual creation or do you think there is balance between the two considering it takes much individual interpretation to survive?
Before that question can be answered properly we would have to determine what a universe is. "A parable of the universe" It can be said that each of us is a universe or solarsystem in and of ourselves.
And these interact (sometimes colide) just as other solar systems do way way out there ??????
I don't think that we create "OUR" universe but we do get to do with it as we please up to the limit of the power that we have within it, as does everyones. And we sometimes feel like we live in a pinball machine.
I've thought about (If I had the time and fortitude) going back through everything that some people have posted in here that I agree with,giving credits where credits are due, formulating a single but differet conclusion than they intended.
That would freak some people out to see their common beliefs instead of the dirrerences.
I guess it is all in which side we choose to focus on.
We definitely create our universe. And that is already known. The way the brain works is it gathers information from the senses and makes an interpretation of it BASED ON WHAT YOU KNOW...meaning if you do not know what it is, YOU WON'T SEE IT.
What the senses see is another, how we remember what we perceived is directly linked to emotional associations.
There was this interesting special that explained this.OH wait. eveybody must have heard WHAT THE BLEEP? It told a story about the first indian that did not see the ships coming from the sea because he has not seen it before.
Also our eyes can also see things relative to the needs of our biology. WE look at fruits and see color, because hey we need to know which fruit has what goody. But is the banana really yellow outside of our perception? Flies don't see yellow. So whose right, the fly or us?
What reality seems to be outside of our senses is this : NOTHING is there but energy transactions.
No, I was just wondering. I agree with Beez on this one. We know how and where color originates, so.......... unless we are a fly I think there is room for error in what science says a fly can see. I guess we should of left that question up to Jeff Goldblum.
However, I went to the link and what an interesting project. Blue brain, even has a catchy name. I hope this all really works.
Who Markham? No he was in California. The Brain Geek here in New York is a beautiful woman who studied attention in Cornell. That was interesting too.
Her metaphors are succinct. According to her, we have a watchdog that watches out for our long term goals underneath the tasks of the day and when it sees something in line with that long term goal. it derails the task of the day to pursue the longterm one.
Kind of like, trust your feet, it knows where it is taking you.
Colors are nothing but the results associated with light absorption of the materials properties of reflection and dispersion of photons, their length and frequencies. It is the light receptors within any species eyes that determines what colors will be recognized.
When i look up i see a universe. How did i create that? It was/is just there and i saw it. The eye registers things around us by light reflecting off the object. If i see a ball in the backyard it is because the ball is there, i did not create the ball, i just walked into the backyard, that was there before i got there. More likely the manufacturer of the ball created the ball and the manufacturer of the universe created the universe. I still had my hands in my pockets while all this creation was going on.
and people say religionists have some weird questions
So the materialist view is that thought is the sum of it's parts created by the universe, the dualist view is that thought and mind are separate from the body which creates the universe and all physical reality?
What is the best evidence from the dualist view that mind is separate and the creator of all physical reality?
