I am not you and vice versa.

That would entail being 'something'. If this is an Illusion there is no you me jack henry or sally. They simply don't exist but in the holomind.

Nothing matters but now.

And even that really has no substance seeing as we aren't really here.

Here's a question.
If you play a video game, does that world exist as spatial reality?
And where does you consciousness reside?


There is No Spoon.

1 - There is no field, there is only 1 point in the entire Universe.

2 - That book is a holographic illusion created by the AI algorithm.

3 - There are no scientists, there is no brain, there is only consciousness.

4 - No one remembers everything, that's impossible.

5 - The pineal gland is a holographic illusion created by the AI and physics engine.

6 - In fact if you even exists as a consciousness, you're me and I'm you.


I think the Matrix has you dude...

This is a fascinating subject. I'm not sure the man with only 20% of his brain is the same one I heard about where all the actual brain matter had metled away and the % that was left was essentially the outer layer which was still held i place by his skull...

Though I have heard this discussed many times, it is not something I can wrap my mind around. This world and whatever I see and feel in relation to it is something very real to me.

Yes it feels real and is real in many ways. Our senses are attached to everything including physical and emotional pain. But it's a fun topic to explore.

It is a fascinating discussion. I just hope I don't get a headache for trying to think too hard. LOL

The brain does not seem to be essential for life . I remember seeing a little girl with the same situation as the one in this vid and she was smiling and her eyes were looking around and seemed to be aware of her surroundings .

Jellyfish has no brain. Plants has no brain. And lots of other living things. Don't you think they're conscious?
Here's a vid of plants:

You know I was about to make a joke that consciousness is located in our Right foot. Then I saw your post and realized I was wrong.
You have demonstrated that it is the left foot.

Therefore to conclude;
Every living thing is more than what meets the eye.

I think they have a response to their environment .Not sure it could be described as a conscience but it may . Animals seem to behave like they do .

There is a lot below the surface yes . Even a rock can be more then a rock if you break it down into its smaller parts .

Do you consider rock as a living thing?

My point might be this: Every living thing has a life force. So as humans.
Every living thing that Science can't fathom/explain has a life force. And that life-force is what's called "Soul or Spirit" in Metaphysics.

Even Jesus stated could make the rocks sing.

He realized nothing was impossible.

But then again, everything could be a time released program could it not?

Some rocks do sing. Given the right structure then the wind blows. There. You got a singing rock.

I believe Jesus has that "special" type of Spirit. He might have done OBE too.
