1. Ego and Consciousness (Theoretical Speculations)

    (read this if you’re interested in metaphysics and/or consciousness based models of reality)

    There’s a perpetual “reference point” that the mind is constantly reffering back to and this reference point is where the ego resides. It is the part of the mind that calls itself “I” and attaches it self to external phenomenon in order to keep its identity a constant. If you were to eliminate the reference point of the mind and everything the reference point identified itself with…what would be left other than a stream of constant consciousness/awareness? There would be no need for memory because memory is what the reference point uses to construct itself in the first place. No memory means no past, therefore no illusion of a “current” identity. The future would also be a place of non-existence within the mind because the future is spawned out of the hopes, desires, and expectations of a self-identifying thinker who conjures up these aspirations.

    In effect, if you removed the thinking mind from the equation, what would be left other then pure experience? Experience without any type of thought. Thoughts are just fragmented knowledge used by people to explain their own personal levels of understanding of what goes on around them, which is all based off of experiences. So if you were to completely remove all thought, what would be left other than just an awareness of being? Think about it.

    The wave-particle duality of matter that was discovered due to the double slit experiment only reinforces that consciousness is all that seems to be left when everything is reduced to its smallest level. Gravitationally trapped light (the phenomenon dubbed “matter”) will either be everywhere at once, or it will coalesce and form actual particles depending upon whether or not its being observed. So if matter isn’t really an objective force, it would mean that matter is only presented as solidified material in the presence of a conscious observer.


    Knowing this, your eyes cannot see themselves. If your eyes cannot see themselves, how are they even working? According to quantum mechanics they aren’t even a definitively solid object. So if that’s the case….who/what is watching everything? Consciousness being fundamental to existence makes sense and is more or less proven by the double slit…at least in my opinion.

  2. This blog is about to become a whole lot different. I just found a bunch of my old writings ranging from topics like quantum mechanics and consciousness to sociological issues and other general philosophies..probably gonna start posting alot more text posts.

    If you unfollow me after this change, i dont mind. What im really hoping for is more input from others who like to talk about the same things..since my life has been lacking in the area for quite awhile. If you want to talk about anything, literally anything, dont feel afraid to get at me! Chances are i love to talk about it.

    DEA Agent Was Told Not To Enforce Drug Laws In White Areas (Must Watch)

    Don’t believe there’s a racial element to the War on Drugs? As a former U.S. marshal and special agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency, Matthew Fog witnessed the astonishing inequity of the War on Drugs firsthand. This is his story.

    You can construct as many theories as you want about these issues (police targeting minorities and not whites etc) but you almost never know whats guaranteed to be true until you hear it from the mouth of someone like this..someone who’s actually involved and knows the real operations and intentions of the DEA and other police organizations. Hearing this being said by someone like this helps validate theories that government agencies use economical/racial bias in their operations to crack down on drugs.

    Man, I just wanna find a community of people that aren’t trying to control or one up each other or the universe. People living together, growing and sharing food, knowledge, art, teaching each other survival skills, and living in harmony with nature like we were intended to. Society is cancer and I can’t fake it and make it like so many do… I will never give in to this conformity.

Four young women born with abnormal or missing vaginas were implanted with lab-grown versions made from their own cells, the latest success in creating replacement organs.
All four of the women are now sexually active and report normal vaginal function. Two of the four, who were born with a working uterus but no vagina, now menstruate normally. (Photo credit: REUTERS/Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine/Handout via Reuters)
