I can see how my thoughts looked like they were swinging towards epiphenomena and I don't agree with this at all, the point I was trying to put across was this: If the nature of the Universe is Fractal and electro-chemical activity in the brain is a signature of consciousness doing its thing at a human level, what is galactic electrical activity a signature for?Grey Cloud wrote:Hi Elijah,
I think you are confusing cause and effect. The electro-chemical activity in the brain is the effect of consciousness; it isn't the consciousness
So is electricity the carrier of information that we observe as conscious experiences? Isn't awareness separate from consciousness, conscious experiences being Qualia, something has to observe the Qualia for it to have any meaning? On another note does anyone actually know for sure what "electricity" is or is it similar to Gravity in that we know what it does, but not what it is?Electricity cannot be producing consciousness as electricity is material (Or requires a physical medium).Also there are places electricity can't go or pass through.
Okay I don't think electricity creates consciousness. I thought it might faciliate it in some way. If electricity is the effect of consciousness, where does the cause that was creating the effect of electrical activity go when a person dies or when under general anaesthetic? Is there any data from space that shows galactic electrical activity manifests and disappears regularly?Doesnt seem credible to me. Electricity does not create consciousness
I read Walter Russell's "secret of Light" and found it fascinating. He was talking back in the 40's about the holographic nature of the Universe. I can relate to consciousness being the film and awareness is the observer.As with light the same lens is able to create a laser beam or a huge picture on the cinema screen.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts though. Very interesting
