OTOH, the Europeans thought that we Americans way overreacted to all of that.

IN SEARCH OF A NEW MIND-MATTER PARADIGM

How did energy turn conscious? Consciousness in its breadth and depth is too complex to have arisen from insentience. So, how does consciousness inhere in energy? Is consciousness local or of the nonlocal kind? There's no valid explanation to account for the existence of consciousness in energy that fits in with currently acceptable paradigms based on materialism as the crux of everything. How do we proceed from this dead-end in logically answering the question - how did consciousness emerge in energy? Evidently, our notion of reality is skewed and incomplete. Materialism cannot account for consciousness and consciousness cannot account for the existence of energy. Consciousness is intelligence, energy is brawn. Neither can exist without the other. Where one is, the other is present covertly or explicitly. Activity is a sign of energy, order of intelligence. Both work in tandem. One without the other can neither function nor exist. This imbroglio of mind-matter can be resolved by taking the facts for what they are and integrating them into a holistic system. We need a new paradigm that simply accepts the glaring fact that reality has both a dynamic and an objective aspect which is energy and that at the same time the other side of reality is consciousness which is the basis of intelligence and order. both are essentially needed to explain the nature of reality. We have objectively investigated energy through scientific experiments, while consciousness can only be researched by turning the consciousness on itself in a yoga of sorts.

Being comfortable with each other is more important than fidelity in a relationship.

Had I been in a relationship, I would stick with wife or live-in on grounds of compatibility and wouldn't mind my partner having sexual affairs with boyfriends and I'd make sure that my partner, too, wouldn't tie me down to a boring monogamous relationship.

The link below (about 8 mins) is definitely worth watching. It was filmed by an Israeli news team who accompanied a group of 2G, 3G, and 4G Nazi descendants on a tour of the death camps.

The Jinn and Tonic Skype team of atheists have soundly screwed up Quran and Islamic apologists. The whole Quran has been debunked. Kudos to Godless Saudi, Stop Spamming, Aly Aly, Klingschor and Almighty Atheismo of the Jinn and Tonic team.

The growing tribe of millions of ex-Muslims, especially Arab ex-Muslims, has contributed immensely to the defeat of Quran in Skype interactions like the popular Jinn and Tonic show available on YouTube. Kudos.

JOEL COOL DUDE----Hugh, What is the source of bad?

Hugh---- Satan

Joel----What exceeds good and bad?

Hugh---- Better

Joel---Why is it essential for every facet or for every capacity to inhere in a system?

Hugh--- To make it a system or remain a system. Share your thoughts on the matter.

What is Satan?

How do you know it/he exists?

What is the causal connection between good and bad?

How can 2 independent entities - God and Satan or good and bad - exist without a causal connection between them since unity underlies all diversity?

So, "better" exceeds your God, who, as you stated earlier, is all good? LOL.

What is the common basis of bad, good and better?

What connects bad, good and better? Are they interconvertible terms? How?

An isolated system is an integrated whole in which inheres everything as aspects that're connected by cause-effect relations. Information in terms of energy, matter and consciousness can neither enter nor exist such a system.

Former---What do you see as the difference between Jews and Christians? Anything at all?

HughBe---- What a profoundly intelligent question. Note, I have already answered this question in a previous post but now I am asking you to answer it by telling me the differences between a Jew and a Christian.

Former---My understanding is that "we" Christians are waiting for the 2nd coming while my Jewish friends are still waiting for the first.

HughBe--- Ignoring the quotation marks, YOU are no Christian. Perhaps you are a Jew but you are certainly NOT a Christian.

I spoke of differenceS and so I am still waiting.

Hugh---- Satan

Joel---What is Satan?

Hugh--- A manifestation of the UNIFIED FIELD or the FORCE that is in rabbis and their disciples e.g. Frijoles and Eric.

Joel----How do you know it/he exists?

Hugh--- From personal experience, I see it almost daily at work. Tell me, how is it that you with all your yoga journeys are ignorant of Satan. Explain the HOSTILE FORCES that have attacked you many times in the past.

Joel---What is the causal connection between good and bad?

Hugh---- The latter being a CORRUPTION of the former.

Joel---How can 2 independent entities - God and Satan or good and bad - exist without a causal connection between them since unity underlies all diversity?

Hugh--- The UNITY concept is you idea and not mine. Tell me, are you UNITY with your Number 2?

Hugh---- No son, you are not getting it. When I speak about good I mean RIGHTEOUS. I do not mean good in terms of quality. Let me explain, you have a good pair of shoes and I have a BETTER pair. So we both have a pair of shoes but the QUALITY of mine is BETTER than yours. However, neither your shoes nor mine have even a drop of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

LOL.
