Jed Rant: Thoughts on thoughts.
« on: September 17, 2017, 01:46:35 am »
Dear Members, Lurkers, and whomever might come to this:

Modern science teaches and shows pictures of neurons firing and creating thoughts.... PET scans, CAT scans, MRI's, etc. can illustrate this...but, in keeping with my contrarian nature, I ask you to consider this.

Thoughts are not a result of firing synapse or the like, thoughts cause those firings. Thoughts don't exist within your brain, your brain receives thoughts. You are always walking through the field of consciousness and your brain is similar to a radio receiver. Where is free will in this model?

Even if you decide to change something, perhaps the channel you are listening to, that is simply responding to a thought transmitted to ''you''. Even the thought that there is a ''you'' who is there to receive that thought is just another thought, or perhaps a collection of thoughts. Memories are just recalled thoughts.

Perhaps right now your brain is picking up on the thought that this is complete rubbish... did ''you'' choose that thought or did it just happen. Other folks might be picking up the thought that runs something like, ''Geez, what if this is the way it really is?''. Once again, was this a chosen response? What if the you that you think you are is just a though and the you that you really are is the ground field of consciousness, (Truth) and infinite context (field) that contains all possibilities. What if the human you think you are is only a temporary expression of Truth and, as Truth has no reasons (reasons result from thoughts only) there is no reason for any of these goings on... or you might receive a thought that there is a reason of some sort. But, that is only a thought and of no consequence...

If I am making sense, please ignore me... if this doesn't make sense, please contemplate it. If you don't care, keep in mind that you did read it so nothing will ever be the same... ever...be... the .... same.... (or is that just a thought?).

Love ya, Jed.

Yes,  Very much in tune with what I feel.
Again synchronicity. ))

I'm reading now 'Solaris' by Stanisław Lem.
It also very resonates.

In speaking of possibilities and potentials:
This is a separate, very voluminous and interesting topic for me.
What do you see here?
It could be discussed.

A distraction from your journey to Self and realizing that Truth Is.

Love ya, Jed.

'Distraction' and 'realizing' are only 2 possibilities.

What did you mean when you said:
...infinite context (field) that contains all possibilities.

Did I understand your previous answer correctly?

Hmm. I took your words in a different context.
Truth is a very general concept. I wanted to consider some details.

OK.

I was interested to discuss earlier.
But now I want to put all thoughts out of my head.
Some kind of reboot is going on.
I'm sorry.
