What is a brain then good sir? Did our brain make our brain?

Reality is an illusion taking place nowhere or now and here. Even the brain is an illusion. The mind is experienced as one thought at a time. A thought appears but has to disappear before another thought can appear.
It looks like there are two things. The 'thing' that is experienced and the 'thing' that experiences but if you were to take away one of these two 'things' there would be nothing known.
Without the tv screen could a picture appear?

The knower of the experience is not an illusion because it cannot be seen.

Reality is a construct of the mind.

What all of you have said are just words!

"Reality is an illusion..."
"You are crazy babbling..."
"Reality is very real..."
"Reality is an illusion of our minds..."
"Our minds are an illusion of reality..."
"It's all brain..."

Silence!!!

The "illusion" is arguing with the "illusion" claiming it is 'more real', and the "real" is arguing with the "illusion" claiming it is the 'crazy one', lol.


Ohhhh, thank you all for this sunday morning laugh!

Actually the It's all brain one has some backing other than just words.

Everything is an illusion,we dont see anything the way it actually exists,What things really are.We are not able to see what anything really looks like...

Reality is invisible...All is illusion...

For one example,look at a wall painted white.We see a solid structure that is colored white...

When in reality,that wall is not solid at all,it is constructed of billions of atoms,billions of protons,neutrons and electrons all spinning around each other at lightning speeds and we see none of that taking place,but it is happening all around us everywhere and that is what the wall really is...

That wall is not solid,it is mostly empty space,but our senses are unable to perceive of that space,what it really looks like,what it actually is.That wall is not really white and we are unable to see whatever color it really is...

To comprehend this we must first understand how vision works...

Photons of light emanating from the sun at 186,000 miles per second are reflected off the surface of the wall and into our Cornea...

Then the light passes through the dilating colored Pupil and into and through the Lens of our eyes...

The Lens refracts the light upon a light sensitive tissue we call the Retina,which receives the visual images...

Then the Macula processes the detailed images that are then collected by our Optic Nerves electrical cables transmitting the visual information into our brains...

Our brains which combine them into a composite neural image...

Our brains interpret the walls color as being white,but it is not really white and our limited vision sense is unable to show us what color it really is.The wall may have no color at all...

Our eyesight,directly connected to our brains,is only able to identify and see the visible wavelength of the electromagnetic spectrum...

Most of the electromagnetic spectrum,most of whatever reality actually might be,is beyond our perception and comprehension...

And when you touch that wall,you only think your touching it,but you are not really coming into contact with it.The electrons of the wall are repelling against the electrons of your hand.Electrons conduct heat and electricity and it is that interaction that your brain perceives as touch...

Keep going,

Hash out your thoughts. You have strung together a group of unrelated facts, and hypothesis, do you have more?

Picture a human brain sitting on a table in a laboratory somewhere,not a brain in a person,just a brain sitting there by itself...

Next to this brain is an advanced type of "simulating machine" that has a built in screen showing on it,or just a program in it,of a beach near an ocean on a sunny day filled with people...

There are five wires running out of this machine and connected to the five corresponding sensory locations of that brain...

"Now turn the machines power on" and this brain "would one hundred percent" see the beach and the sunlit blue sky,hear the people talking,feel the ocean waves,touch the sand,smell and taste the salt in the air, it would think it was really there! never knowing what was really going on...

Whats really going on with us in this reality,whatever it is?...

We may be able to penetrate this shrouded mystery called life and remove the veil of illusions that surrounds everything we see,hear,taste,touch and smell the world through...

The theme is all wrong anyway.

Its - Reality is the perception that creates illusions, taking place inside our brains. Or else all you are doing is playing semantics of reductionism (which I think is a clever way to sell something by the way)

Definition of Mind > The element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world and their experiences,to think and to feel; the faculty of consciousness"

To think,feel and be aware would all be impossible for us to do without our brains...

Our brains are most likely highly evolved biological computers engineered by super advanced aliens who descended from the sky and appeared before prehistoric humans,who were then genetically manipulated,cross bred with alien dna and altered into the modern humans we are today...

Take away our brains and absolutely "nothing" would exist for us anymore...

Any true hallucinogen will bring you to the same conclusion.

I think it's Klaus, if he touches my Chocodiles I'll kick him in the pow pow.

But on topic; reality is what you make it with your choices; you are only hindered by your self imposed limitations.
Our brains arrange the information that is flowing in from our five senses and then forms that information into comfortable neural images,allowing us to continue functioning in a bizarre reality we know very little about...But...

What we see,is not the way the world really looks...

What we hear is not how the world really sounds...

And we never really touch anything at all...

We only think and believe that our individual actions are important and vital and really mean something, thats why we even bother getting out of bed everyday and keep putting one foot in front of the other,over and over and over again...

But we are all swept along by the tides and currents of life changing events that are all connected within the unknown and unseen frequencies of humanities collective subconsciousness that we have no individual control over whatsoever...

If i was alive while it was going on,could i have resisted and prevented ww-2 from continuing? No matter how much i thought it should end,i would have been able to do absolutely nothing to stop it...

Actually we are all just one vast inter-connected,three dimensional hologram,thats been pre-programmed to think that its alive and has been pre-programmed to think that it needs to believe in a material reality that doesnt even really exist...

Extrapolating this from the true fact that as material manifestations, we're no more material than downtown traffic, is what a lot of people have decided to do in recent years, and it's the impact of making the intellectual transition from one fundamental view of reality to another, more accurate view of reality. That said, this bizarre view is only transitional and hopefully very temporary in its impact upon how people view themselves and the reality that contains them within it.

Reality is the entire physical whole that shares a primordial sub-structural commonality, and this includes all activity and the information that exists as a result of (and that provides the default management of) that activity. It's not imagined, since it is required to exist for such imagining to exist as a direct ramification of it and its own prior existence. You kids always get the cart before the horse here, and while you certainly can make it all sound magical and significant, what you can't do is explain how the brain comes into emergent existence if the brain itself is what create the reality that contains it as the dynamic and creating actor that you claim it to be. Even the human mind must physically exist if it is the true author of reality, and yet how can it physically exist if there is no physical reality for it to exist within? It can't imagine itself into existence, and no amount of esoteric poetry or prose will ever overcome that logical contradiction.

Why is it so important to dismiss what's so clearly evident? Yes, the material realm is not the collection of particles and solid materials that we've been led to believe it is. That's true. But that doesn't mean that it's an illusion either. There is another explanation and I have a thread up here that I recently posted specifically for instances like this.

And here is the link - www.abovetopsecret.com... Just like I said I'd do with that thread in cases like this one.

Don't get stranded in the transition between the old view and the new view of reality. This transitional stage isn't going to last very long because it's just too obviously flawed to survive serious scrutiny. That said, at least you're moving forward, and that's a good thing.

'' There are sounds we cannot hear,there are colors we cannot see and we never really touch anything... ''

Although I agree with most of what you're saying but this is sentence very wrong because reality has no sounds or colors to it. So simply put; there are no sounds we cannot hear or colors we cannot see.

Is this a Zen thread?
Or is it a guide to motor cycle maintenance?
