I mean another person's mind... like yours maybe.

That would be a brain. I'm just going by the definitions in your OP and your post about the Mind being "a field of some type that is made of all of the individual minds".

The question stands. Why would the mind do this? To what end?

Both of you? That's bullying.

OK, I was just trying to make it non-denominational.

Getting back to the OP. Are humans trying to connect, through their brains, with the mind or has the mind always known what the brain(s) have been going through?

In other words, did the mind build the matrix for amusement and it has known all along what was happening while the brain(s) stumble around in a maze?




By "the mind" I mean the collective minds of humanity existing together but separate in a cohesive field. We did not create the matrix. The matrix is a hypothetical grid of numerical values which represent/describe reality.
And does our mind know what's really going on while our brain stumbles around in ignorance?
Yeah, I think it does and it tries to tell us but we don't listen like we should.

I know what you meant but saying that the brain is the transmitter/receiver seeking contact with that collective mind made it sound like it was the source.

I'm just saying it sounded backwards.

ETA to your edit: What difference would it make to the mind if we listen like we should? Wouldn't the collective mind know that stumbling around is the point?

We've all had that nagging feeling that we've ignored when we shouldn't have. And why should our higher self want to help our lower self? It's the right thing to do, maybe?

For example... when we know of someone in pain I believe we naturally extend our minds to experience a portion of their pain which is what initiates our feelings of empathy. I don't believe we can extend too deeply into another person's mind but we can feel the outline of their pain and distress.

But that is from the lower POV. If what you proposed is true then it wouldn't matter. The higher self would know that the lower self was at a disadvantage. Like a grown up letting a kid make mistakes because they know that is how they will learn.

But if both the kid and the grown up are the same person, why would the kid have to learn what the grown up already knows?

A wise man learns from the mistakes of others to avoid mistakes of his own....and a loving parent imparts the wisdom that they've acquired from their own experiences so that the child can learn in a safe and nurturing manner.
And if the kid and the grown up are the same person why would they he kid not know what the grown up knows? Because I SAID SO.
Now go to bed!

I was only speaking subject matter in reply to your post. Seems
way over the top to even imagine any arrogance in what I wrote.
I did assume it was okay to respond to people I don't know on ATS.
All tho with that attitude I don't have a clue what you mean by this.



But we can always blame god for that.


WE? Can't even exchange a single post without closed minded hostility.
So it looks like you'll be blaming God on your own for your own.

This basketball player (in a movie) got out of the shower, made a wish, looked down in his towel, and cursed God for giving him only 3".

Is that God telling a joke?


You really got me think'n for a minute on that one. But just to be clear
I am no authority on the big guy by any means. I only speak of what I've
come to know of him. And I can only hope I'm correct by the sense I've
been able to make of him. Any way your question:
I hope you're not just yank'n my chain but

I don't think God was playing a joke on him personally if that's what you
mean? So no I don't think that was God telling a joke. However I think it
would be pretty hilarious if someone actually blamed God for such a little
thing.

Oh my gosh are you asking what I think you're asking. And did I answer the
wrong question instead of the right one between the lines?

Do you think that's why a lot of people are hostile with the whole God
concept?

WOW just WOW!

Existence is non conceptual...... it is what is.
What is cannot be be captured by any symbol.

Are you a symbol, a number, a word?

Have idols been made?

All I know, is that if there is such a thing as a god, he must have a sick sense of humor, regardless of how he tells his jokes..


If that's all you know it may not hurt to find out a lot more. Unless
there's some reason to ignore the possibility you might be in error.
Or is everybody who sees it differently just not as observant as you are?

As far as I can tell the intricacy of not only existence but everything in
existence even down the atom assures me this life is no sick humored
joke by a long shot. The scope of it all boggles the imagination. You
might start by examining your own bias. But my advice to that is
limited.

Do it on your own away from any religion.


How is this subjective?
You use a lot of “you’s” for someone who’s only discussing subject matter. Do you even know what you write?

This was directed at me, not god...

They fixed the witch, the bitch that itched, a caused us such lament,
but didn't fix the twitch that reached into a solemn moment...
they'd rather say it went away
and tell us it's not pertinent...
but still it howls it's angry growls and remains a stubborn sentiment...

I just go to youtube when it happens now.. I'm as abused there...

Yes it was. And basically YOU are the one having the big issue with
it on a public forum. I do find that much interesting and see no reason
to beg your pardon. All you had to say was something like, I'll pass.
But you chose instead to answer hysterically. Why do y'all react as tho
I insulted you? Is it insulting to suggest you know more of what you're
talking about?

To know more of what your talking about?

I could talk most people under a bus about linux. I'd hope I was right, but there is always that windows guy... you know..

Things can't speak things into existence.
Whatever is; is existence.

There is no something doing anything.

What is is being what is.
