On the design, simulation, and creation, of mind

Let us assume that our thoughts and feelings are actually creations, that they are not mere side effects of the interaction between physical matter and the mind/brain. In effect God in Her mind fashions our thoughts and emotions. They are tangible/material elements to Her which She fashions or forms in our consciousness. She has her CAD workstation constituted of Her mind, where She forms these thoughts before putting them into production.

The Soliloquy of We

Spirituality:

Visitors to the TED website or their Youtube channel some years ago may remember this presentation by Jill Bolte Taylor. The ostensible title of the presentation is "My Stroke of Insight", but what many of the people who (have) watched it probably have never noticed is that its true title is "Who are we?" If you watch the presentation closely you see that caption appear a few times in the presentation.

The Darshan of Melani

MelaniI have been looking at this blog post of mine on Google and Isabelle. The photos of the women at the end have to be scrolled through one at a time, and a few times on scrolling through them I sense a kind of grace in looking at them. It is as though the beauty of the pictures is some kind of blessing, that it is some divine kindness which has made the images of those women available to be witnessed. In some way I have come to the conclusion that it is the picture of Melani is the one which contributes the most to this feeling.

On Being A God - Within The Direct Post Processing Induction

(from Advaita Musings)
I was going to quote a verse from the Gita here, but I can't locate it, so I will have to add it later.

The Electronic Brain

(from Advaita Musings)

Thinking along similar lines as the Direct Post Processing Induction let us consider a different case. In this one consciousness arises as an effect of the states in an electronic computer, rather than those in a biological brain.

In this example the whole world is modelled right down to the quantum level in a computer and the sentient aspect of the brain models the biological brain exactly, only in this example consciousness arises from the electronic states.

My Galactic Brain

(from Advaita Musings)

According to current theory, our perceptions are the results of brain states, with the brain being some kind of computing device, with states or configurations within the computer mapping to different perceptions.

Total Darkness

(from Advaita Musings)

Total Darkness. We are in fact in Total Darkness. Out there there is no light, ie the sensations within the brain which we describe as light, which our vision is constituted off. This is because the sensation of light as we see it does not exist in nature. It exists only within the brain. Let us assume that there is a three dimensional world out there, with light sources reflecting off objects. The simple fact is light as you see it doesn't exist in nature, it is the effect of coded information exciting cells in the brain.

Direct Post Processing Induction

(from Advaita Musings)

Direct Post Processing Induction. That is an intriguing geeky term. The kind of expression you could hear from Jeff Dean. What it could it possibly mean? It comes down to the brain, yours truly, how it works, and how by considering alternative views of its workings, We, or I, come to an entirely different view of how reality, and the way We function within it.

A Wild Wild Harinama after the Paris Ratha-Yatra

Mangala-Vati 04

I have been longing for good pictures of one of my favourites Crushes of the Month, and who would believe it, there is a God after all. And what's even better is that it is a video, an even more magnificent one, with lots to choose from. Here is Mangala-Vati in glorious techicolor, with her dazzling presence and beauty leading a troupe of Krishna devotees of Krishna right across Paris, showering her inhabitants with the presence and blessings of Lord Krishna, whereever she goes, on whoever she glances at. What greater sight could a crypto Hari Krishna devotee wish for, other than the presence of Lord Krishna himself?

You, Igraine

Who, or what, is the Morgause to your Igraine? (a rather long lived Igraine I should add)

Who is the Morgause whose desire, manifests as the karma that is your life? When is that karma, and where is that karma?

Who, or what, is the Morgause to Morgause's own Igraine?
