Donna Summer's Love to Love, Serenading the Joy of Gaia

Submitted by afrocentric on Mon, 13/11/2017 - 05:32

A woman's candid expression of carnal pleasure, joy and ecstasy is something which is supposed to be private, something she acknowledges to herself when alone, or when she is with her partner. Even then her partner is not privy to some of these expressions. In this song she appears to be reliving the experience, and expressing her feelings about her man in song.

On the design, simulation, and creation, of mind

Submitted by Carlos Quinto on Fri, 19/05/2017 - 19:00

Let us assume that our thoughts and feelings are actually creations, that they are not mere side effects of the interaction between physical matter and the mind/brain. In effect God in Her mind fashions our thoughts and emotions. They are tangible/material elements to Her which She fashions or forms in our consciousness. She has her CAD workstation constituted of Her mind, where She forms these thoughts before putting them into production.

Spirituality:

Visitors to the TED website or their Youtube channel some years ago may remember this presentation by Jill Bolte Taylor. The ostensible title of the presentation is "My Stroke of Insight", but what many of the people who (have) watched it probably have never noticed is that its true title is "Who are we?" If you watch the presentation closely you see that caption appear a few times in the presentation.

The Electronic Brain

Thinking along similar lines as the Direct Post Processing Induction let us consider a different case. In this one consciousness arises as an effect of the states in an electronic computer, rather than those in a biological brain.

In this example the whole world is modelled right down to the quantum level in a computer and the sentient aspect of the brain models the biological brain exactly, only in this example consciousness arises from the electronic states.

According to current theory, our perceptions are the results of brain states, with the brain being some kind of computing device, with states or configurations within the computer mapping to different perceptions.

Total Darkness

Total Darkness. We are in fact in Total Darkness. Out there there is no light, ie the sensations within the brain which we describe as light, which our vision is constituted off. This is because the sensation of light as we see it does not exist in nature. It exists only within the brain. Let us assume that there is a three dimensional world out there, with light sources reflecting off objects. The simple fact is light as you see it doesn't exist in nature, it is the effect of coded information exciting cells in the brain.

Direct Post Processing Induction

(from Advaita Musings)

Direct Post Processing Induction. That is an intriguing geeky term. The kind of expression you could hear from Jeff Dean. What it could it possibly mean? It comes down to the brain, yours truly, how it works, and how by considering alternative views of its workings, We, or I, come to an entirely different view of how reality, and the way We function within it.
