Feelings and emotions. Dear Human... You Are Nothing. An Alien God. "A curious aspect of the theory of evolution," said Jacques Monod, "is that everybody thinks he understands it.
" A human being, looking at the natural world, sees a thousand times purpose. A rabbit's legs, built and articulated for running; a fox's jaws, built and articulated for tearing. But what you see is not exactly what is there... Why can't viruses be treated? - Yahoo! Answers. God particle: The Large Hadron Collider. Physicist Stephen Hawking denounced for believing... : Science & Technology. ...for believing human beings are biological robots with no consciousness or free Behind every madman, there is a distorted philosophy that denies people their humanity, says Mike Adams, creator of the new mini-documentary "The God Within," available now on NaturalNews.TV.
This documentary deconstructs the core philosophies underpinning modern scientific thinking, unveiling the frightening fact that most modern scientists do not believe human beings have free will, a soul, or even anything resembling consciousness. Why do people always use circular logic when they defend the Bible. Not really!
It is straight to the point! It is a total waste of time for any man/woman of science to engage in a rational dialogue with any religious people, especially Christians! The Muslims lost any momentum they had hundreds of years ago! Now the hard core Muslim MEN are into bombing themselves up at any busy intersection with plenty of innocent people around to get 72 virgin girls as soon as they land in their Islamic Paradise! Baruch de Spinoza's 'Nature and God' Explained, with Will Durant Myths of Evolution. This serial ran from January 15th to February 26th 2009, in six parts.
Originally written as a throwaway Focus essay, it rapidly became apparent that it would work better as a serial. The purpose of the exercise was to identify specific stories that have been used to present various evolutionary theories in the popular media of the last 150 years. Most of these stories are metaphysical in nature, and for each such "myth", an alternative spin is offered to show that while science is in principle neutral, the way it is presented is rarely free of bias. Each of the parts ends with a link to the next one, so to read the entire serial, simply click on part one, below, and then follow the "next" links to read on.
Here are the six parts: 3D Human Anatomy. What is the point of existence. The question is not about OUR existence.
It doesn't take an immortal to uncover that answer. An immortal would be interested in the point of "existence as existence," and since the question doesn't say "man's existence" I can say it doesn't take an immortal to figure this one out, either: "Existence is a self-sufficient primary. It is not a product of a supernatural dimension, or of anything else. Many Worlds and Infinite Universes. By Len Hart I was asked: how can an infinite universe be created?
In response, I thought of yet another question: what is a "creator" if not a part of whatever universe is created? DR. QUANTUM - EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED. Science & the Sacred. Big Fat Quotes "Consciousness" November 2010. Sorry for the long absence!
I've been exploring the concept of "simulated suffering", whereby you intentionally choose an action which causes you some suffering, in the hopes of learning/growing from the experience. We do this all the time of course, but there are degrees. And it's the degrees - and the intention - which matters. Consider running, or jogging. I'd put that squarely into a "simulated suffering" category. But I would like to describe two basic techniques (in addition to the technique already mentioned - exercise): Meditation and fasting. 1. March 2010. Airplane passengers flying near thunderstorms could be exposed to dangerously high levels of radiation in the form of terrestrial gamma ray flashes, scientists say.
In space gamma rays—the most energetic forms of light—are created by violent events, such as supernovae, and powerful objects, such as neutron stars. Scientists have known for decades that thunderstorms on Earth can also create gamma rays, possibly during lightning production. Storms that make gamma rays usually hover about 9 miles (15 kilometers) above Earth, about the same altitude at which many commercial planes fly. The new study shows that just one of these terrestrial gamma ray flashes, or TGFs, can equal the radiation dosage of about 400 chest x-rays—creating potential hazards for frequent flyers.
In theory, stray gamma rays can alter the structure of human DNA, possibly triggering cancer. "I would put this pretty far down on the list [of airplane hazards]," Dwyer said.

Complete this sentence: Did you answer 3 and 10? Of course you did. It’s the Pavlovian response. How the World Works.
The Body As Machine. Or copyright 1982 The Anstendig Institute We are vibrating bodies living in an environment, every part of which is vibrating.
Even those things which seem to be still are vibrating. Curious: Decisions, Decisions. Universality. This section under major construction.
One of the crowning scientific achievements of the 20th century was formalizing the notion of computation. In this section we address the fundamental question of what is computable in this Universe. Surprising revelation of 20th century is that a general purpose computer is capable of performing any computation that any other computer can. Perhaps the most important idea in all of computer science. Disruptive technology which ignited the Computer Revolution. No need for separate machines for processing images and text. How Sound Travels" Sound travels in mechanical waves. A mechanical wave is a disturbance that moves and transports energy from one place to another through a medium.
In sound, the disturbance is a vibrating object. And the medium can be any series of interconnected and interactive particles. Are humans wired to survive?" Neural network nature, Complex networks, cosmic evolution, fractal hierarchy, memory, learning, intelligence, Power laws, pareto distributions and Zipf's law, longtailed distributions, fat-tailed distributions, parabolic fractal distribution, scalefree ne. Physics, complexity and causality "Although the laws of physics explain much of the world around us, we still do not have a realistic description of causality in truly complex hierarchical structures. " George F. R. Ellis Peter Winiwarter. Your Brain as a Neural Network. Your brain is a neural network.
One statement that follows immediately from the fact that the brain is a neural network is that every computation performed by the brain is a collective computation, not some other kind of computation. Not a digital computation, not a quantum computation, not some other flavor of computation - collective computation and collective computation exclusively.
