nobel peace to an organisations.smells of IOC to me.
commitment means sacrifice….apt.
Julian Assange to become a cult via Benedict Camberbatch.
What is it with Irvine Welch’s current revival of slightly outdated movie adaptations of Ecstasy and now Filth…
Should have done it straight after trainspotting..dont get why the public needed the delay.
the subjective awareness of the history of a boson.
the will to procure ones own fate.
how much awareness does a flame of light have of itself through perturbations of electromagnetic radiation?
the metaphysic and empiricist divide over awareness is the question of whether uncertainty and multiplicity of inputs represents the calculated probability of the actual and concrete or the inherently fuzzy non concrete nature of reality.
IE Joe Edwards simply chooses to interpret the wave function as a probabilty calculating machine of the truth…something Penrose recognised.
But to the mathematical philosopher who questions the very nature of number logic it is a deeper question not a different question to ask why then do fundamental particles only observe probabilities?is there something fundamental to a probabilistic view of the very essence of reality itself that prevents it from ever being deterministically pinned down?
and maybe the joe edwards of this world are always catching the tail winds of the probabilities “downstream” and assigning this as reality without questioning the mystery of the original “unpin-ability”.
attractive idea about the piezoelectric,flexielectric waves and Fromlich waves as the “all sensing” wave of awareness that permeates every neurone via post synaptic potentials but how do those waves acts in concert with millions of other waves to then give a collective sense of the self Im not so sure.
guess the CSF in your ventricles would be too lumbersome a mass to constitute some kind of electromechanically conducted wave of self consciousness…
what if CSF in brain was more or less viscous or dense.
woud it alone affect thought?
do we have a clinical surrogate for such a scenario?
suppose hypotonic solutions could be injected intrathecally…
dont know how thatd get past ethics….
but hey theyve already been injecting thrmbolytivs intratheally for intraventricular haemorrhage so it aint that much of a stretch.
does density of CSF correlate with cognition?
Edwards tries to bypass the need for a listener of the aggegated inputs by suggesting that the cell through its own wave function is aware of itself and hence has its own individual awareness but that is contained in a finite space time locus and that implies that we are collectively a series of multiple beings one instant to the next…
if that is true would it change anything about our assumed outputs from the present model of an individual with unique identity?
suppose not because at each instant the collection of sentiences that is you has only an instantaneous quantum of space time to ponder about its own conflicts before more basic drives take over motivation.
hence it is only an eerie byproduct that we have the capacity to transiently reminisce on the strange paradox of our existence but for most evolutionary purposes this pondering hardly occupies us enough to have an influence over much more potent evolutionary and genetic pressures…a necessity in fact for life…
it is not a coincidence that the some of the more pensive of our race have been driven to suicide.
