Uniting Space, Time, Matter, Motion & Universe
From the Metaphysics of Space and Time
(Particles & Continous Spherical Fields in Space-Time)
To the Metaphysics of Space and Motion
(Matter as Spherical Waves in Continuous Space)
Then how do you explain gravity as a physical thing?
You can notice things that have no physical nature because they cause the physical things around you to react. Consciousness is quite perceivable, even you have said that you perceive that you are conscious. As a materialist, you seem to find that things which we can not perceive but effect reality are just caused by physical process and I understand that, but why can you not see what I am saying.
As consciousness has perceivable effects it is a process that we can label as a philosophical phenomenon.
I wonder if the only reason for including those two might be that both animals and humans actually seem to make choices and act on them.
The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious by CG Jung. It does covers quite a bit of what your OP is about.
By the same token, how much of our unconsciousness developed in our formative years due to the environment we were raised in?
Did she receive milk from a pregnant dog and gain something non-human through that? The video does not mention it, but if she had been abandoned to the kennel at a very early infancy stage, it is likely. What effect would that have on her mind?
Is consciousness (still quite unsure what, if anything, that is) the phenomenological effect or the cause of these phenomenological effects?
If Schroedinger evolution were the only way that matter waves could change, we would have some difficulty connecting matter waves with our ordinary experience. Matter waves typically are spread over many positions and are superpositions of many momenta. Yet when we measure them, we always find just one value for position or momentum.
Now, I am a dualist. I think the consciousness is separate from the body it seems attached to.
Introductory Quotes to David Bohm's Holographic Universe
It is proposed that the widespread and pervasive distinctions between people (race, nation, family, profession, etc., etc.) which are now preventing mankind from working together for the common good, and indeed, even for survival, have one of the key factors of their origin in a kind of thought that treats things as inherently divided, disconnected, and "broken up" into yet smaller constituent parts. Each part is considered to be essentially independent and self-existent.
(David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order)
The notion that all these fragments is separately existent is evidently an illusion, and this illusion cannot do other than lead to endless conflict and confusion. Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today. Thus, as is now well known, this way of life has brought about pollution, destruction of the balance of nature, over-population, world-wide economic and political disorder and the creation of an overall environment that is neither physically nor mentally healthy for most of the people who live in it. Individually there has developed a widespread feeling of helplessness and despair, in the face of what seems to be an overwhelming mass of disparate social forces, going beyond the control and even the comprehension of the human beings who are caught up in it. (David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order, 1980)
Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. (Leibniz, 1670)
We are a part of Nature as a whole whose order we follow. (Spinoza, Ethics, 1673)
