How can we observe logic as a part and parcel of action. Answer .In the double slit experiment in quantum mechanics. It the experiment shows logic in action.

The universe is an illusion in eternity. There for eternity is the logic that conducts the illusion and takes it back into eternity.

The double slit experiment shows that a particle in motion has angular momentum, velocity of speed and direction making its appearance as a waves while in its natural state has no displacement, no velocity of speed and direction, is dead in the water.

It is rationalization that makes Mankind's World of Reality an Illusion; an Illusion must be made manifest Reality in order to even exist as an Illusion.

Yes the universe is an illusion that is being projected by eternity. From the View point of eternity though no time passes by as the illusion is being projected. But change in the system is govern by a seemingly none existant force. One plus eternity equals two. And that is logic.

Just taking a break from intuition-based pronouncements that this thread attracts by the dozen, consider the evidence: newscientist.com/article/dn12301-man-wi ... s-doctors/

If a person can function normally with only a thin sheet of brain tissue - fully conscious without the two structures considered essential for consciousness - the claustrum and thalmus - then it's clear that the brain's usual structure is only one way of producing lucid consciousness, a strong indicator that Information Integration Theory (IIT) is correct.

If the brain's particular structure is not necessary for consciousness, then maybe water based organic compounds aren't necessarily needed to produce life and consciousness either?

A man with an unusually tiny brain ... works as a civil servant.


Ah, the perfect career for him!.... Sorry, I couldn't resist. :P

Greta, how do you know those structures are missing and not simply deformed and pushed away by the fluid?

Greta; If you are taking a break from intuition-based pronouncements that this thread attracts by the dozen, consider the evidence the above is a intuition-based pronouncement that this thread attracts by the dozen, consider the evidence: newscientist.com/article/dn12301-man-wi ... s-doctors/ ???

What do you think this is???? An intuition-based pronouncement ????

A robot can not be consciously united with eternity.

-- Updated May 9th, 2017, 6:30 am to add the following --

A robot like a brick wall can be an expression of eternity but it can't be consciously united with eternity. A robot would have to be part of the changing uncertain system (universe) and human consciousness is certainty as the expresser in the expressed.

-- Updated May 10th, 2017, 9:21 am to add the following --

The expresser is the logic that existed prior to the big bang expressing the change in change that the speed of light of light c cannot distingish.
