Incredible! Car Photographed 100 Years Before Produced & Other Cases of 'Time Slip'!

A... According to great scientists such as Albert Einstein, time is not as stable as most of us think. As humans we’re adjusted to time and our evolution has established tricks to allow our conscious minds to deal with it but in reality it’s a slippery concept. Time slips occur when a current time (now) interlaces with a previous time (then) and can be experienced by the person from the more recent time. However, the event is usually unnoticed by the people from the earlier time.

Well, plenty if you know where to look. Still, according to most accounts, this usually lasts for only a few seconds and the human brain does its best to filter out these anomalies. In almost all cases the person experiencing the time slip blinks, looks again and is startled to find that whatever they saw has now vanished.

Quantum Consciousness . Stuart Hameroff. Overview: Could Life And Consciousness Be Related To The Fundamental Quantum Nature Of The Universe?

Quantum Consciousness . Stuart Hameroff

Consciousness defines our existence and reality. But how does the brain generate thoughts and feelings? Most explanations portray the brain as a computer, with nerve cells ("neurons") and their synaptic connections acting as simple switches, or "bits" which interact in complex ways. In this view consciousness is said to "emerge" as a novel property of complex interactions among neurons, as hurricanes and candle flames emerge from complex interactions among gas and dust molecules.

However this approach fails to explain why we have feelings and awareness, an "inner life". We also don't know if our conscious perceptions accurately portray the external world, or if we all have similar pictures of what lies outside our conscious minds. Reality seems to be described by two sets of laws. Belief in Belief.

Information Philosopher - Introduction

This finding has enormous implications for philosophy. Instead of a closed universe that is winding down deterministically from an initial state of high information, we find the universe is open and increasing information indeterministically. An open indeterministic universe with increasing information suggests three testable philosophical ideas: a model for free will and creativity that may satisfy determinists and libertarians a value system based on fundamental creative processes in the universe an epistemological explanation of knowledge formation and communication.

Marx/Engels on Historical Materialism

Thus the first fact to be established is the physical organisation of these individuals and their consequent relation to the rest of nature....Men can be distinguished from animals by consciousness, by religion or anything else you like. They themselves begin to distinguish themselves from animals as soon as they begin to produce their means of subsistence, a step which is conditioned by their physical organisation. By producing their means of subsistence men are indirectly producing their actual material life.
