<quoted text> I knew you were too psycho to understand. We all can agree that if consciousness was something that 'came into being'(rather than always being in existence) then there was a time when there wasn't consciousness and a time when there was, and the amount of awareness is besides the point.
A bunch of molecules are either aware of themselves or not you idiot. So yes there must have been an instant in time when it went from 'non-aware' to 'aware'. I'm talking about awareness you idiot. if something is the tiniest bit aware of itself then it is aware of itself, a tiny bit. That's all I have time for now, go back and rewrite your bullsh*t and address the point this time.
Your comprehension is non existent
Well, there is a difference between awareness of self and awareness. My dog is certainly aware, but she has no sense of self as far as I know.

<quoted text>What was penrose's theory? That the brain works as a "wavefunction collapser?" That sounds more like a theory on the brain's relation to the world, not a theory of consciousness itself.
There is one thing I agree with pokay on, and that is that we don't yet know how consciousness emerges from the brain, but I don't agree with where he takes that point - his claim that since we don't know the mechanism that all observations and ideas about consciousness are meaningless. You're right, he does use the word "quantum" to mystify the issue, as if the simple suggestion that subatomic particles follow the laws of quantum mechanics is reason enough to believe consciousness is quantum in nature. To me, it's almost like someone who doesn't understand computers saying that since quantum mechanics govern tiny particles, and since computers are ultimately made up of tiny particles, that all computers are secretly quantum supercomputers. That's not the best analogy since we know hot computers work, but still..
I agree that we just like gravity, we have not answered all the questions, but am positive that consciousness was developed by the formation of the neural network and that it expanded it's complexity over time. That it was the ability of cells to store and share bits of information that led to the formation of the neural network, and the evolution of it that created consciousness.

Quantum mind is an attempt to explain quantum events from a human physical perspective, and deals with the superposition of information..thus making part of thought process a quantum event, so when thinking part of our thought is entangled.
Penrose suggested microtubules in the brain are what entangles information in the thought process and is why wave collapse happens due to the conscious effect of the observer.
It's a theoretical physics stab at explaining how the brain works like a quantum computer by joining space/time itself to connections in the brain.

Here is a precise definition of it's implications.

This is what I've heard...
The Aussie men don't like us, because when we come to Australia, the Aussie women dig us and want to be around us, which upsets the men.
Is this a myth or just bullshite?

Of course, and we always wil have differing opinions, until such time as any evidence is found to actually prove anything of a supernatural nature. So far nothing is known, as far as my understanding goes.
I highly suspect, due to the high value so much of the world places on theism, that an actual proof will be major knowledge to everyone capable of receiving that info, and if it is verifiable proof then God would become a proved entity rather than one that some parts of the world believe in.
Ive always wonderd what evidence one would want from a supernatural being?

A signed letter of authinticity? An audiable voice from heaven? The Holy Bible which i know is a myth to you, But it says one must have faith, and there shall be no sign giving.

So the only (personal) proof,evidence i ever got from God was when i put my faith and trust into him with my whole heart, its more then just a decision with the brain but a commitment from the heart. I sought God ( not religion, not mans doctrines, denominations and such, but God..

I know its hard to believe in something you cant see touch or feel, i have been right there in that position. His words describes the ''only way to know of him, so i would think if one doesnt come that way. Well, then he will never have that proof he seeks.

Sorry about your back.

I made a sweater from my dryer trap collection.

So is my dog.

In an inflatable kayak, how do you distinguish between stern and bow?

OK. I had a duckie in mind for some reason.

Why do you go with the inflatable?

I ask too many questions, I'm sorry.
