@livinglava,
By what measure is your judgement valid? Yours?

Only by readers who fully understanding my meaning.

Even if I measure my own judgment as valid, that doesn't mean I will be able to convince others if theirs isn't.

@livinglava,
So - You feel validated by affirmative respondees - The more the merrier?

Maybe 'merryier', have forgotten.

Being valuable is not the same as feeling valued, LL.

Everything is equal in value.
Have a lovely day

If I do feel validated, that feeling is temporary; but if I exchange thoughts with someone and either or both of us progresses in our own development, that makes a permanent different in at least one small corner of the universe.

It's good if you can continue to produce value when/if you don't feel valued.

I don't know that I agree, but it is a nebulous-enough statement that there's probably an interpretation that would allow me to agree with you.

@chai2,
dedication, decision, judgement etc is absulutly not a the Will
the Will is inner factor that drives us into action
It's the inner essence of each of us That prioritizes our priorities in life

@yovav,
Could I get some dressing with that word salad?

Inner essence?
Inner factor?

Inside what?

You need to denfine what you mean by inner essence & inner factor.

How do you measure it, what does it look like, how are you showing it's in each of us, etc etc.?

None of this is getting anyone any closer to the "purpose of the brain"

The purpose of the brain is to store memories, control movements and functions of our body, and process information

The raison d'être is to function as a soft drive. No?

Our inner essence is what defines all our precious bodily fluids. Unerstand Mandrake?

Sorry, my yellow bile humors are overpowering my phlegm today.

I'm in need of a bloodletting. Where's my fleam knife? Or at least some leaches.

@glitterbag,
That it is. One of the most important movies ever made.



Quote:
Nineteen hundred and forty-six. Nineteen forty-six, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works.

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
Uh, Jack, Jack, listen, tell me, tell me, Jack. When did you first... become... well, develop this theory?

General Jack D. Ripper:
Well, I, uh... I... I... first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love.

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
Hmm.

General Jack D. Ripper:
Yes, a uh, a profound sense of fatigue... a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I... I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence.

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake:
Hmm.

General Jack D. Ripper:
I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women uh... women sense my power and they seek the life essence. I, uh... I do not avoid women, Mandrake.

I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion, and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

@yovav,
For what it’s worth..My view is that the organ “The Brian” is just hardware with preprogrammed software within it.The brain is a reasoning MACHINE.Information can be inputted into it and reasonings are outputted from it.The real you processes the outputs and then determines via the Will.Input imbalance or only half the required information (or in other words rubbish) you will get rubbish out.You can get embroiled within the brain or stuck in your head all the time.Not good.This is why consciousness states and the understanding of them is important.

@nacredambition,
Take it or leave it.Personal experience is the only way.If you are looking for someone to provide evidence for your own personal experiences then you will be waiting for an awful long time my friend.Eternity in fact.

@Jasper10,
There is two parts to the brain/mind/consciousness states.Call them what you want.One can be described as the manual or in the moment state or can also be described as the observing state of mind.One has generally come out of oneself in this state as opposed to being in the within consciousness state or autopilot state or thinking state of mind.Most people have absolutely no idea of these things.Once one gets to grip with them then the 3 parts to our make up becomes more apparent I.e the physical body including the reasoning brain;the you; and the I am concepts.Only personal experience of these things will convince an individual.Most people are looking for evidence of the above all the time.What has that got to do with anything? An individual needs to experience it for themselves.

Trying to understand CONSCIOUSNESS is the next big thing.It frightens SECULAR scientists because they know that they will need to become part of the experiment inorder to understand the true nature of it.

@Jasper10,
The brain is an organ that we engage/disengage with.We can experience this literally by coming into an understanding of the autopilot and manual consciousness states i.e. the in the moment and not in the moment consciousness states.
