JOEL THUMBS UP"---HUGH,Do you think consciousness is a nonlocal phenomenon?

Hugh--- I always THINK. Yes.

Now, share your thoughts on the matter and give reasons.

Joel---Is it possible for consciousness in any of its gradations to do work?

Hugh--- Yes but mindless matter cannot work unless it is acted on my a consciousness.

JOEL THUMBS UP"------
No, no, those are not the answers.
More on these profound questions, later.
Among the world's religious scriptures, only the Vedas deal with consciousness and these days quantum physics is increasingly concentrating on consciousness.
Is consciousness a substratum, a phenomenon or an epiphenomenon?

Hugh--- Please share the answers to the above before you move on to another profound question.

You should do the same at home.

The toilets in the house should be thoroughly cleaned twice or thrice a day.

No one is permitted to use my personal toilet.

My guests are free to to use the other toilets in the apartment.

Only the servants enter my personal toilet to clean it thrice a day and do the same with the other toilets at home.

Pseudologia Fantastica: Pathological Lying...
In psychiatry, pseudologia fantastica, also called mythomania, compulsive lying or pathological lying, is a behavior of habitual or compulsive lying.

Pathological lying is the act of both knowingly and intentionally/willfully making a false statement. Most people do so out of fear. Pathological lying is considered a mental illness, because it takes over rational judgment and progresses into the fantasy world and back.

Pathological lying can be described as a habituation of lying. It is when an individual consistently lies for no personal gain. The lies are commonly transparent and often seem rather pointless.

Those who practice the Christian faith and
follow Scriptural teaching are forbidden to
practice sorcery (Galatians 5:19-21). The
word for “sorcery” in Greek is “pharmakia,”
which is where we get the word “pharmacy.”
The definition of sorcery/pharmakia in the
Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old
and New Testament Words
is as follows; “the use of medicine, drugs,
spells, and poisoning.”

A few replies to that
1) Discussion? More like a soliquy. That goes for all the Indian posters.
2) Who made you ayatollah of the discussion forums?
3) The personalities are what makes these discussions engaging. If it wasnt for ridicule, I might have to actually do something productive.
So if you tell people not to discuss personal matters, you become an Ayatollah?

What do you know about Ayatollah? Making him another Icon like OBL?

And in fact I was asked to comment about the personality of Joel by some of your "Non Ayatollah" buddies.

Sounds ok to me. "if they are to die, they had better do it now, and decrease the surplus population".

So many words use their original meaning over the time and are used in totally different sense.

For example the word "Gay" had nothing to do with Homos, they "adopted" it and soiled it and totally changed its meaning.

The same goes for "Drinking", the word has nothing to do with Alcohol imbibing.

'Drugs" have nothing to with narcotics.

People misuse established words and make new meaning out of it.

It is not strange for me that word "Pharmacy" was used in a different sense.

And this practice is very old, like they call Pauline Christianity as "Christianity"!!

"SUBSTANCE" ?
When you use capitals as you've done with the word SUBSTANCE, you should not use inverted commas as a highlight since the use of caps itself is a highlight?
Didn't you know this basic rule in English grammar?
As a native English speaker from Jamaica, your English lacks punch, depth and class.
The fluency is there but the vocab and grammar and flow are unimpressive.
rabbee: ever hear of the doubling or tripling of a word, to signify extreme importance? anytime you see a redundancy, it signifies increasing importance. not just IMPORTANT, but extremely "IMPORTANT" to consider!!!... your far to rigid, in your snooty taught tintinnabulation, and blowing your own horn. and if i say you screwed up aaagain. what does that possibly, mean to you?

Moaz, you are always the first to comment on something, only command later not to do that. Hypocritical behavior.

There really isnt an "original" meaning in anything. Language is fluid by function.

I suppose one could decree otherwise, and many a dictator or religious leader (think: Ayatollah Khoemeni and the Taliban) have attempted to do as such. To much failure.

Gay comes from Old German, while Drink is from Middle English.
