OK this consciousness thing is really creeping me out cause I know they can keep a dogs head alive with no body its how they inventied heart surgery. It wouldn't shock me if they did it to humans to test this consciousness theory. And it scares me cause they are pushing it so hard right now some nut will probably try it.

What is the purpous of putting out that message? Most people know that perception is all electrical signals. Its like you want people to know that with the right electrical signal, we can be duped.

Apparently this is technology people are working on, or that they want someone to work on, but for what purpose? For more mind numbing forms of intertainment to be developed, or so that more people will believe in UFO's and aliens? Why?

This only benifits people who have cause to believe. Those who may want to create miracles.

Why keep pushing it.

Maybe there are people who just want to understand reality better.

The human mind is crippled in its ability to determine what's real. Not always, but definitely with enough regularity that a site like this one is able to attract and retain the traffic that it does. If the human mind was capable of dependable translation of incoming data, we'd all understand the world the same, and there'd only be issues of honesty and integrity when addressing conflict. We all know that this isn't the case, and that one person's true is not necessarily true for the next person. This is the nature of human consciousness, and since this is how we each experience reality, it seems appropriate that someone should be examining the physical nature of human consciousness for clues as to why it can vary so profoundly from one person to the next.

The reason why some might take such research and use it in a corrupt manner is because only the private sector does research anymore, and only research that will turn a profit (or that will bring in government contract dollars) is funded anymore. Focusing on turning a profit has always corrupted the nature of research, artificially narrowing the scope of potential revelation in the endless drive for dichotomous efficiency by corporate bureaucracies that long ago supplanted the government's primacy involving stultifying layers of Kafkaesque banality.

Someone will probably invent a nasal spray that will give you a night on the town (dinner, movie, get laid) while you sit in chair at home, with your family buzzed out on whatever other offerings SONY will have in their nasal spray catalogue. Rest assured that the only thing you'll surrender if this research ever pans out for the folks funding it is years of your life to meaningless escapism. Not that this is much of a loss for most people.

There was a time, when we just were, we had no need to question who or what we were, as our belief in ourselves and our faith in the continuation of life beyond death was resolute.

Since the advent of the matrix, or, basically a control system for human perception, we are basically questioning the matrix itself, and at the same time, we are in denial of its existence.

For example, the need to question "the mind" is only apparant to those that are absorbed in thier mind, and have no connection to their spiritual body. Those that are especially atheistic, basically have lost the connection to their soul, and cannot fathom an appreciation of the spiritual world, because they have separated themselves from it.
