Frans Kellner Posted 5 days ago David Chalmers: How do you explain consciousness? You've a vivid imagination and indeed nothing is impossible. The life of a pretty lady can be very difficult so to be safe stay as you are. To see what experiments are done look at the video in this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdNOU-lsc_o Another one on the subject is this one: http://www.gizmag.com/brain-capable-of-redefining-peoples-selves/17951/ To understand my view on consciousness takes a different stand from the common view of it. First you have to realise what it is, to be. To Be or not to Be is the essential question for being-ness is one. All in existence that we know of is one being we sometimes call the Universe. Life and in particular your life is a special way of being were being is experienced through a sensory system attached to it all. In that action we become aware of what are focussed upon and calculate a virtual divide between self and not self. On a deeper level and without the usual attachment to our senses we can at the same time experience that pretty lady down the street through her senses but it would become very confusing. The human mind made order from chaos by dividing and cataloguing me from you and time from space as past from future to get a rational view, to build a world in which we can navigate. Logic has made life easy but it keeps us from seeing.
