    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    I wouldn't be the least bit surprised. Maybe somebody had the answer come to them in a dream that they thought was too weird to tell anybody about. Maybe a thousand other philosophers had it cross their minds, but because they couldn't find any references to it by other philosophers, they...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    The concept is very simple as already outlined, but I suppose that like any other philosophical musing, it could be expanded into a paper of some length explaining the way it relates to other theories. Perhaps if these initial attempts to find out whether or not somebody else has already done it...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    That article suggests" "SED is based on the conception that the universe is imbued with an all-pervasive electromagnetic background field, called zero-point field (ZPF), implying that the fundamental mechanism underlying conscious systems rests upon the access to information available in the...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

Welcome Dr. Emily Zarka - Monsters in History UPDATE: I read the article and yes there are definitely hints at something that may be the same. I will be contacting Annaka and...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    Update to the Neuro-Filtering Hypothesis ( NFH ) post here. A cursory review of the combination problem does not pose an obstruction to the NFH. At present, it seems that the problems with panpsychism stem from reductionist approaches that make consciousness an intrinsic part of materials (...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    Thanks for the reply. I haven't found anything identical in my travels or in any keyword specific searches that fits. The closest I've come to anything like it is panpsychism, but only in the vaguest sense, which either doesn't really say anything meaningful, or upon development runs into...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    Does nobody care to consider the Neuro-Filtering Hypothesis ( NFH ) I proposed a few days ago? It's the first quasi-new thing to come along for me since I came to the conclusion that materials alone might make the difference between experiencing consciousness or not experiencing consciousness...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    We could start a "Music For Philosophers" thread. Which seems to be the most open idea. Again though, a lot of such music falls outside what you or even myself might prefer to listen to. What if a particular song expresses deeper philosophical concepts than the music we like? Do we allow it or...

    Consciousness and the Paranormal — Part 13

    The Music thread seems to have mysteriously vanished. There is a What Are You Listening To thread for anything including lectures, not just music. There's also a bunch of other threads for music. Another one dedicated to de-stressing can't hurt, but be prepared for the fact that some people...
