I’m going to have one of the beers that have been in the bottom of our fridge for eternity – I’m pretty sure that at the beginning of the Universe, God said, “Let there be beer in the bottom of Glenn’s fridge.
I was reading/learning last night about the two (often competing) congnitive systems we have; for lack of better terminology I’m going to call them the “dopamine system” (DS) and the “cognitive system” (CS).
A while ago I wrote about a female friend who was considering becoming Muslim, and I expressed a concern over both the underlying motivations for such a decision, and the possible outcome.
Two major revelations and one minor one on my walking-meditation yesterday 1M. Non momentary-focused consciousness as a source of dissatisfaction This morning I was very disturbed and dissatisfied, what with not having our bond repaid and such.
So quantum reality is one of probabilities; right now, for me, the probability that I can spontaneously develop the ability to fly is quite low. At the moment, I’m occupying several dimensions – including the one (or more) which define all the possible realities, alongside the “normal” three in space and one in time.
I was given a copy of R. Buckminster Fuller’s “Critical Path” for my birthday recently (thanks!) and I’ve been reading it again and thinking about the concept of “purpose” as it relates to a human life in an “… eternally regenerative Universe …” which “… does not depend on us, [as we] are not the only experiment.
We live in a reality that is always under a probabilistic quantum flux, apparently. An electron travelling from A to B actually takes every possible path; the path we observe is an integral across the probability of each of these paths, “collapsing” into the most likely one at the point of observation.
I watched a documentary on reincarnation last night, which was interesting. They looked at the case of a boy in Glasgow who from a young age spoke of his “other family”.
Okay, so that last entry was kind of short and rushed — it’s because I didn’t want to write about “consciousness as a non-physical, non-temporal phenomena” (although I might manage to write something a little more coherent at a later date).
