The Void of Somethingness is the wedge that forms when you cut bologna or baloney from the center to thedge to keep it from ballooning up when you fry it.

Afficianados of fried baloney know that of which I speak.... The Void of Somethingness.

You consciousness would be just as real as anyone's but your experience would be incomprehensible to me.

My mind is programmed in English.

Good point I was thinknig of. Also, a person would have none of the five senses. Trying to imagine what he's thinknig of is like trying to think of a new color known made yet, or a die with infinite sides.

It's a metaphor for life and reality....

Baloney all around us, yet we are surrounded by nothingness.... we see and yet we are blind.... we eat and yet we hunger.... we live and yet...

Oh, forget it.

Infinity is real. Infinity is nothing because if infinity was something, it would be finite. Nothing is real.

It's all just awareness of portions of infinity. Thoughts in the mind of God. Enjoy the ride... You create it.

You need to get inside a sensory deprivation tank.

I would feel the desire to know another 'sensory individual' was out there feeling and confirming what I was feeling; love, lonliness, the desire to connect and communicate.

Even with eyes and ears and nose (does this guy have a nose?) one can ask the question what is real. I think that it is all perception. Where I like the smell of old books, someone else may think it disgusting. So do the old books smell good or not? To me they do, but to the other they don't. Some people may thing the Jaguar is an awesome looking car and I see it as ugly. I believe we are all in our own little worlds that are all unique on their own and that's how we relate to others, because some people we know live in similar worlds and have similar interest. Does that make sense? Well to me it does anyway.('

The only thing that would exist would be your thoughts, therefore they would be the only thing in your situation that would be considered real, but only in relation to yourself. If another being entered the equation, you would have no method of communicting your thoughts so they wouldn't be real to the other being.

No thing will make me happy.
Happy is what I am.
No things.
Just this.

I have read several papers on the subject of thinking. From them and other sources here is what I believe would most likely be the case. Thinking is a learned ability. If born that way the subject would have no memory to base anything on. This includes the ability to think. The subjects mind would be a blank slate just like a new born baby. With no means to add any new data to that mind it would stay blank forever. The mind would be stuck in time at the point of birth. Now the question is just how long could the mind run in this "stand-by" until it just shut down? Weeks or months? Maybe years but there would come a time when without any input it would just shut down and the subject would just die never even knowing it was alive to start with.

what will your hypothetical mind think about ? my answer would be nothing - as the disembodied mind has never experienced anything but itself

Pure silence is a state of no thing, an eternal void of infinite potential. Through the power of focused intention, this vast sea of emptyness is sent into motion. This motion as we call it, is called consciences. We don't know if anyhting is real. We just precieve it to be real.

The concept of real would not occur to somebody whom has never had the ability to understand language or conceptualise the world of thier senses. What would be perceivable in such an individual would be an intensely accute sense of feeling towards the energies and emanations of thier environment.

The question is, is, can you be nothing and perceive nothing? The answer is no, however, there is a moment, between this side and the other, where there is a moment of pure unity, where "nothingness" can be perceived, before being birthed out on to the other side of infinity.

Just got off phone with a doctor friend of mine about this. First off he says this is a very odd topic and someone needs help. He says this does in fact happen sometimes. He went on to say for all purposes intented the subject is born 'brain dead'. The brain fails to switch on and as a result a lot of the body functions do not come online. The kindeys and such and even the lungs most times and the subject has to be put a ventilator. He went on to say most do not live past a week in this state.
