Indian origin US porn star SUNNY LEONE has made her foray in Bollywood. She speaks only American English with that typical California accent. Her Hindi is atrocious - even worse than mine!

The spoken language among Bollywood stars, directors and producers on the sets or among themselves or at home is English.

IS QUANTUM ORCH OR MODEL A PLAUSIBLE EXPLANATION OF THE ORIGIN OF CONSCIOUSNESS?

The Orch OR model of Roger Penrose and Stuart Hamerroff talks about the noncomputable/non-algorithmic nature of consciousness which is simply a finding that establishes a relationship between microtubules and EEG and it has in no way provided evidence of the origin of consciousness in the brain.

Quantum effects at the microtubule level could be the symmetry breaking point at which consciousness manifests from the energy field pervading the sub-neuronal network.

On the other hand, Dr Roderick G. Eckenhoff at U Penn suggests that anesthesia, which selectively "erases" consciousness while sparing non-conscious brain activities, acts via microtubules in brain neurons.

This neurological explanation makes consciousness just a material property of matter that can be switched on or off by drugs when however the evidence suggests otherwise.

What is missed in the analysis of looking at the subjective states from outside of the system is that during anesthesia consciousness is not erased as naively suggested and that after the patient revives he or she if put under skillful hypnosis by a trained expert can recall every detail of qualia experienced during the "blanked out" state and details even of the surgical operation itself can be consciously recalled much like a person who remembers minute details of the events taking around him while he enters a NDE state which he narrates with great accuracy after the cessation of the NDE.

Consciousness is not as easy to explain using QM or neuronal models as the scientists think it is otherwise it would have been a done task by now of synthesizing life from scratch or of reviving a corpse or of storing consciousness in a recording device or transferring consciousness from one organism to another.

What is being theorized or indirectly observed is the effect of consciousness at work in matter, while consciousness itself remains beyond the reach of all theories and inferences and is native to energy just as say the capacity to do work is thereby making energy conscious.

The most ant-semitic thing that anyone can do to the Jewish people is withhold the Gospel from them.

and by the way - 3 tabs out of 8 asking for money DOES indicate a group's priorities. Which was his point. What one does with the money is a whole other conversation.
HughBe----Do YOU know that Christians BEG to support Jews who are NOT Christians?

Frijoles----Did you know that Jews BEG to support Christians that are NOT Jews?

HughBe---- Listen well DUNCE, your man spoke about "a never stopping beg a thon""

I KNOW that it is beyond you to understand the words so SHUT up.

My points are it us UNTRUE to say that all Christians are involved in a NEVER stopping BEG a THON. YOUR man being a Judaist like you is also willing to speak about the Anglicans although out of his orifice he has NEVER seen a broadcast from them. I find the approach typical of Judaists.

My later point is that in that begging there is begging for Jews. Is that a LIE, Judaist?

You are one funny Flocer and you remain obsessed with RACE. Here is a friendly advice, focus on what is being discussed and respond in a relevant way to points being made or simply shut up as it shall add sheen to your lack of luster intelligence.

HughBe--- If her answer is yes that means that BOTH of you have similar taste.

PSEUDO-SCIENTISTS:

PART 1:

I really feel sorry for the usual run-of-the-mill scientists, who, despite not knowing, say, what forces drive their personalities or what lies ahead of them over next microsecond and in order to hide their frustrations at being nowhere remotely close to understanding key issues of existence such as the origin of the cosmos, fate of the cosmos, the question of fine tuning, life, sentience, death, psi phenomena and lack of any clear-cut genetic mechanism to account for personality features (like self-awareness, abstraction, conscious reflection, intuition, inspiration and revelation) routinely keep churning out a giddying dossier of absurd ideas to justify the existence of their respective disciplines of research and study. Or more so, it has almost everything to do with egoism and lack of humility of not knowing when to confess one's ignorance.

Not being in a position to cogently answer any of the above mentioned fundamental phenomena, these crass materialistic experts resort to verbal jugglery, mathematical manipulation and intellectual fantasy by coming up with bizarre and irrational hypotheses such as the multiverse according to which random quantum fluctuations and inflation somehow produced the cosmos from the supposed vacuum state and that during the process of inflation the random fluctuations somehow got right the laws based on finely tuned physical constants in just our universe while the laws in other universes are highly unstable or unsuitable for generating life not being finely tuned.

Or, take another shocking paradoxical hypothesis they talk about regarding how the correct organization of matter somehow produced life from nonliving matter while having absolutely no clue about the supposed mechanism by which something completely devoid of life can give rise to life and sentience.

In this context, Boltzmann brains ("disembodied consciousnesses") is another fruitless cosmological idea that has been invented - as if to say that quantum fluctuations in the vacuum state can ever give rise to fully formed "conscious entities" that simply pop out of the vacuum.

What is the form of these so-called primal conscious configurations called Boltzmann brains that just popped out of the vacuum fully formed when it supposedly took billions of years for ordinary brains to come into existence on earth from a sea of random molecular pull and push forces?

Were the conditions in the vacuum just right to produce these so-called fully formed conscious entities (Boltzmann brains)?
