I have now created a book which is 62 pages long. It explains everything in regards to my worldview and it also explains new things in regards to my worldview. It is not a book I am selling. Rather, it is a book you can read anytime. I will give you the links:

@MozartLink,
Holy jumpin' golly Moz

At risk of repe, w/o Prof some of us [very few like me] would be interested in your background; Age, sex, Ed, Rel, interests, nat'l, etc, & what it was that drew you to a2k in particular

I too was apparently a writer: At age 86, due apparently owing to oncoming Alzies, I suddenly found mysef an old man, with little or no 'mem' of 85, 84, 83, etc; but I must'v writ also, judging by the stacks of rejection slips I 'cumm'd over the eons

Too many paragraphs. Can you summarize it in one sentence? I could have a try... Let Pollyanna be your guide to happiness!

@MozartLink,
Here is one more person's response and my reply to him from the summary of my book:

Other Person's Response: Perhaps explain what makes them qualitatively different from other biochemical thoughts, while you're at it. I understand that we put one in one box, and the other in a different box...but I strongly suspect that this is folklore and fairy tale. A product of centuries of inability to see the workings of our own mind.

My Reply: The biochemical emotions are forms of motivation (drive). For example, when you feel sexually aroused, that is a sex drive. But when you don't feel sexually aroused and having the thought of being sexually aroused cannot put you back into that sexually aroused state, then having the thought of being sexually aroused would just be empty words. They would not give you any sex drive. That is why our rational value judgments cannot be any real emotions (drive/motivation) while it can only be our biochemical emotions which are the real emotions (drive/motivation).

The same idea applies to value judgments. Our rational value judgments are not any real value judgments and it can only be our biochemical emotions which are the real value judgments. People are mistaking their rational value judgements as being the real emotions and real value judgments when it was really their biochemical emotions all along which were the real emotions and the real value judgments. Even the idea of our biochemical emotions being value judgments is supported by skeptics and neuroscientists. I present one quote from one of these skeptics/neuroscientists in my book. I will just go ahead and present it here though. Although, I disagree with his idea that our rational value judgments are real value judgments:

Quote:
Emotions are value judgments too. If they weren't, humanity would not be distinct from other mammals; we would be biological machines with no autonomy, acting purely on instinct. For example, if you are physically hurt, and the doctor treating you causes you pain during treatment, do you become angry and bite him? No, because you are able to override your instinctive anger and fear at someone causing you pain with your ability to reason that the treatment is necessary and the pain is temporary. But a dog can't reason, and will bite to stop the person causing the pain. Both the instinctive emotions AND the reasoned thoughts are value judgments.

Very Brief Summary Of My Book/Worldview

The problem, right off the bat, is that any and all Perspectives/'world views' exist for but a single moment.

And as far as defending one Perspective (Truth is ALL inclusive!), all Perspectives are unique, and all Perspectives perceive the same One (unchanging, all inclusive) Reality/Truth!
All are necessary for all Reality/Self! to be experienced/Known (to Consciousness), even the 'looniest' of so-called hallucinations!
