The Philosophy of Mind

The philosophy of mind was born when philosophers realized the concept of the human mind and its mysteries. The mission of this new branch of philosophy was to understand and explain the nature and the aspects of the human mind as well as how all these concepts connect each other.

The human mind is the object of study of various sciences such as psychology, biology, psychology, sociology, and anthropology. All these sciences examine the human mind from their perspective following the classic approach of observation-experimentation-results examination and conclusion. The philosophy of mind uses the method of philosophy reflection. This method consists of the following processes:

o Examination, analysis and clarification of meanings.

o Data harvest through searching necessary facts.

o Use of deductive conclusions.

o Reduction ad absurdum.

o An infinitely repeating process of arguments, trying to reach a level where the fundamentals of the basic human thoughts can be evaluated.

The methods that the philosophy of mind uses are also tested in other philosophical fields. Methods that were successful in other areas are preferable to be used.

The conclusions achieved in other scientific fields, which also study the brain and the mind (from a different point of view), affect the findings of the philosophy of mind. Thus, the philosophers must always form their research based on the latest updates and development of other related scientific fields.

Characteristics of Mind

The Philosophy of Mind distinguishes mental phenomena from physical phenomena using the following characteristics:

o Inward accessibility

The Conscious Mind: In Search of a Fundamental Theory (Philosophy of Mind)
The Conscious Mind: In Search of a Fundamental Theory

o Subjectivity

o Intentionality

o Goal-Directedness

o Creativity and Freedom

o Consciousness

The inward accessibility refers to the meaning that we are the only human beings who know how we feel and think. Nobody else can experience our sensations and mental states. Thus, our mental phenomena are inward accessible from us through introspection. Eating is an example of inward accessibility. The flavor of the food you eat is only available to you.

Subjectivity refers to certain experiences that are subjective to you. For instance, if you have an itch, you are the only person who feels it. Such mental phenomena have a subjective nature.

Some thoughts have the intentionality attribute. Intentional thoughts are about other thoughts or objects that have a particular property or relation with another object. We may desire an object, like an expensive sports car, we may like it or dislike it. Such attitudes towards the object give us a direction upon it. Intentionality is the way that we are being directed.

You can understand the idea of intentionality better with the following pictures. In figure 1 you have three objects arranged randomly. This random setup does not provide any information and has no meaning.

But, if the same three objects arranged as in figure 2, then you see an arrow pointing to the circle, instead of the two random shapes. While you still see the rectangle and the triangle, this special arrangement gives to your mind a message of direction towards the circle. This means that there is intentionality in the figure 2.

The Sources of Intentionality (Philosophy of Mind)
The Sources of Intentionality (Philosophy of Mind)

Fig 1: Random Placed Objects without Intentionality

Fig 2: Objects with Intentionality

I think that Intentionality maybe is the reason that many companies use in their visual advertisements hidden shapes or words. Such messages are not detectable when you see them as they are perfectly blended in the ad picture. But, as your eyes scan the image, your subconscious mind identifies the Intentionality of the picture and gets the hidden message. Ok, this is just a thought of mine and I don’t know if it is true. Anyway, Goal-directedness follows.

Goal-Directedness is a mind characteristic that accompanies mental phenomena that are interrelated. These mental phenomena are also parts of an intelligent entity that leads us to complete our goals.

The natural process of Goal-directedness begins with the sensation of the events in our environment. Afterward, the understanding of these events follows. Finally the usage of this information together with our remembered experiences, adjust our actions to complete our goals.

Creativity and freedom is a significant characteristic of the human mind. We have the freedom of choice and imagination. This means that we can exhibit creativity in our choices, imagining things that we have not yet experienced. In this way, we can become unpredictable.

Consciousness is related to inward accessibility and subjectivity. This mind characteristic is not fully understandable yet but is the closest term to describe the conscious mental phenomena. In some way, we know that we know.

Mind Theories

The central issue in Philosophy of Mind concerns the existence of the mind itself. There are two fundamental views of the mind. There are theories considering the mind as a material and others that consider it as an immaterial. There are also some neutral theories.

The Mind as a Material

There are three materialism theories, The Eliminative materialism, the behaviorism and the central-state theory.

The eliminative materialism is an extreme view of the human mind considering that there are no such things as sensations, feelings, images and emotions. According to eliminative materialists, all these mental phenomena are non-existent and are completely hypothetical and must be discarded.

An alternative to eliminative materialism is the reductive materialism. Reductive materialists use the terms of feelings, sensations, etc. but only as physical properties of the brain.

Behaviorism and central-state theories derived from the reductive materialism when the sensations, feelings, etc. had to be defined. These two theories are alternative answers proposed by the reductive materialists.

Behaviorism is the view that, sensations, feelings, etc. refer to the behavior or movements of the bodies. Behaviorists analyze the mental terms as behavioral terms so that any mental state to be synonymous with a particular action.

The central-state view considers that mental phenomena have no difference from any state or activity of the human body. Thus, all mental terms are different states of the central nervous system or the brain. For example, the hunger is a state of the mind while the feeling of pain is another state.

The Mind as Immaterial

The first immaterialist was Plato. He defended the view that the human mind exists and it is immaterial. Also, he believed that the mind is separated from the body and can also exist without it. The Dualism theory was born.

Plato was a dualist. Another dualist was Rene Descartes. He believed in the explicit view that mind and matter are two completely different substances, and each one can exist separately.

Rene Descartes

The question that the dualists had to deal with was if these two elements can affect each other. This issue is also known as the mind-body problem.

Some human behaviors may involve both the mind and the body. An example would be a very noisy environment where you cannot stand the volume, and you close your ears.  While Dualists tried to explain these phenomena, they proposed two interesting theories.

The first view was suggested by Descartes and it is called Interactionism. Descartes said that the mind and the body can affect each other with their functions. So, any mind function affects the body and vice versa.

Descartes: Selected Philosophical Writings
Descartes: Selected Philosophical Writings

The second theory is called Epiphenomenalism and is that only the body is capable affecting the mind. The Mind cannot affect the body. This view resulted when the interactionism could not explain the brain functions under neurology terms.

The Irish philosopher George Berkeley dealt the mind-body problem differently. He claimed that everything is immaterial, and no material objects exist. His View was that minds and ideas constitute the whole world. What seems to be material is just a mental perception. This concept of the human mind is called monism.

    Electro-magnetic imprint of DNA goes with you in the death transition !! Multi-life history/experience/form holding patterns in Junk DNA ! Unseen IMPERISHABLE “bodies” in human aura! Brain is not the mind! Mind based upon mental (or reasoning) body of aura! Mind goes with you in death !!

    Note: I lost both of my parents at their early age of 57. This caused me to launch a part-time fifty year study of “what comes next after death?” Topics I researched were such as the Mother Mary apparition messages, a variety of religion beliefs other than my former Catholic (though still Christian), atheists rationale, the paranormal, quantum physics, biology, genomics, messages from the afterlife, instrumental transcommunication (ITC) via phone, tapes and TV, UFOs’ objectives, and extraterrestrial messages, trying to find out answers, primarily thru books, science magazines, and numerous websites, obviously with a very open mind.

    I was particularly interested in answering this question: How can it be that it is possible to contact afterdeath personalities as if they were still of full mental capability — via paranormal MEDIUMS, or even by special ITC electronic communications, as has been demonstrated repeatedly? As a retired engineer/executive, I needed to understand exactly HOW “mechanically”or structurally this could be possible. I FOUND THE ANSWER: Electromagnetic/energetic version of DNA — and unseen IMPERISHABLE body aura containing the mind —- go with you in your death transition!!

    Two books in particular provided key answers, and both were most believable due to being very comprehensive and “scientific” though not related to much of Christian/Judeo training.  Below I have compiled short summaries and excerpts for your possible interest. Also, a short list of books that reinforced these two.  I hope you will keep an open mind in reading them.  An old Chinese proverb states: “A mind is like a parachute. It only functions when it is OPEN.”

    To summarize the first book, a lengthy dictation by a benevolent extraterrestrial group Guardian Alliance, it teaches SCIENTIFIC EVOLVEMENT: 1) Your electro-magnetic or energetic version of DNA goes with you in the death transition. 2) you will reincarnate repeatedly and the JUNK DNA holds your personal multi-life history and experience. 3) Your consciousness will next progress eventually through fifteen dimensions toward “nirvana”perfection, currently being in the third.  All other dimensions are unseen and have different vibrational frequencies and atomic configurations.  4) After incarnation as Buddha, Christ as a highly advanced entity came to us as a teacher from the twelfth or higher dimension.  5) God is the Universe Prime Creator/Force/Source, and not the god Yahweh of the Old Testament who was an Ancient Astronaut to Earth. 

    As dictated by Ascended Masters, key messages in the second book were: 1) There are other unseen IMPERISHABLE “bodies” around the physical one in an aura (Note: As seen by Kirlian/GDV photography, see Wikipedia re: the paranormal aura).  Key bodies are the astral, the mental (or reasoning), the etheric, among several others. 2) THE BRAIN IS NOT THE MIND. The mental body is the basis/source of the mind. 3) All these “bodies” go with you in the death transition, especially including the mind.  4) In the next step, all these bodies and DNA will proceed with you into the astral plane or dimension. 5) do not fear death as it is merely a transition to another “form”.

    See the more detailed excerpts below.  Also, a short list of other reinforcing books. To me, these were “startling” concepts, but comforting in their believability as they “fit” based on other related research.

    There does need to be more scientific research especially on 1) electromagnetic/energetic & biophotonic properties of DNA, and 2) functions of the aura(or bio-energy field)! Russian and German scientific researchers are “on track” to one day scientifically prove life continues after death. Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp and son Jurgen at University of Marburg, Germany continue early work on electromagnetic aspects/versions of DNA and cell biophotonics as members of the Int’l Institute of Biophysics, and among others, Dr. Peter Geriaev in Russia with a breakthrough in biophotonic electromagnetic DNA termed Wave Genetics or bioholography. And, Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, Director at the St. Petersburg State Tech University, who concentrates on aura (or bio-energy field) research as Founder/President of the Int’l Union of Medical and Applied Bioelectrography, has actually produced early Kirlian/GDV photographs which may be of the “soul” or aura leaving dying human bodies. Unfortunately, American research on these two “niches” is relatively modest. Materialist brain researchers continue to believe that the source of the mind must be someplace in the brain or physical body. And, narrowly educated atheists do not believe in any perceived afterlife.

    Book  #1. Source: “Voyagers” Volumes I & II  — by Ashayana Deane(Anna Hayes) For details see Chapters on Ascension Mechanics & DNA.  Available from, Volume I and 2nd Edition Vol. II 583 pages. Also includes information on Earth history and quantum physics. Purchase strongly recommended.

    “At the death of the physical body, you will discover that your consciousness lives on and your evolution continues.
    “Ascension is not some lofty spiritual concept designed by the minds of man, it is the literal, tangible scientific process of the evolution of consciousness and biology with the laws of energy mechanics that apply to a multidimensional reality system.  All souls will eventually evolve and ascend through a 15 dimensional scale to re-emerge as sentient identity within realms of pure consciousness beyond the dimensional systems.  Whether or not you view ascension and multidimensional evolution as a reality while you are alive on Earth, you will be directly faced with that reality once your consciousness has passed out of physical life and into the multidimensional framework.   How well you prepare for that discovery now will determine the ease with which you are able to take your next evolutionary step once you “wake up on the other side”
    “The term “Ascension” represents much more than some lofty spiritual concept invented by the finite human psyche in order to give purpose to its finite existence.  Many in the earthly scientific communities believe that life is limited to the physical expression and that consciousness is the result of the body’s biochemical/neuro-electrical functions.  Following these erroneous beliefs they draw an equally erroneous conclusion that consciousness ends at the death of the physical body. Consequently, human science will be confronted with a whole new order of multidimensional reality and a whole new science.  
    “The process of ascension is not some quasi-religious concept based upon the meandering of the human mind.  Ascension is instead a highly SCIENTIFIC process that represents the universal order through which consciousness experiences itself as being.  Ascension also involves the understanding of morphogenetic fields or the form holding energy constructions that allow matter to build into individuated forms.  Ascension therefore is a science with specific mechanics that allow for the evolution of consciousness from simple to more complex forms.  Every being in existence is involved in this evolutionary process and applies to each and every one of you.  The choices one makes in thought and deed will determine the quality of experience, or lack thereof, that will be personally encountered.
     “DNA is built upon minute electro-tonal (i.e., multi octave) patterns of multidimensional frequency and the energetic imprint of the DNA goes with you in the death transition. The content of that pattern will determine how high your consciousness will be able to travel (progress) in the system once it is released from the body. Whatever frequencies are contained within that imprint will determine the specific dimensional placement after death.
    “This “system” blueprint has called your races forward toward an unseen destiny which is the return of immortality and the (eventual) reunion of the consciousness of man with its Prime Creative Source.  In terms of the soul’s perspective, the challenges and hardships faced along the way in Earth life are understood to be lessons in growth as human consciousness evolves to remember the truth of its eternal existence and embrace the beauty of its multidimensional identity. From the perspective of a human consciousness focused within a physical body on Earth, those challenges can seem, at times, overwhelming.  Without consciousness recognition of the purposes, processes and objectives of the evolutionary plan, the hardships can appear to be unbearable and without meaning.
    “All human souls are involved with the exact same process of evolving the genetic “package” and the consciousness to higher dimensional levels; some souls are just further along in this journey.  This is a process by which the life forms evolve through matter particles and anti-particles upward through the 15 dimensional scale, from dense matter solidity to pure, non-mattered-based conscious energy substance.
    “All dimensions exist in the same space, but seem to operate separately due to the particle pulsation rates of which they are composed.  The degree of angular rotation of particle spin shifts 90 degrees from one dimension to the next while remaining invisible to each other.  In the universe there are 15 primary dimensional bands.  Dimensional frequency bands group in sets of 3 and each set of three dimensions represents a Harmonic Universe.  Thus there are five Harmonic Universes within one (overall) dimensional Universe.  The degree of angular rotation of particle spin shifts 90 degrees from one dimension to the next within one Harmonic Universe.  In each Harmonic Universe containing three dimensions, there are two 90 degree shifts of the angular rotation of spin between particles.  Between one Harmonic Universe and the next there is a 45 degree reverse angular rotation of particle spin.  This 45 degree reverse angular rotation of particle spin creates a Magnetic Repulsion Zone, or void between Harmonic Universes, which keeps the reality fields contained there within separated from each other.  Through this structure of relative angular rotations of particle spin, the holographic illusions of multidimensional reality, matter, time, space, movement and individuation of form are perpetually created and sustained. Entities existing below the 7th dimension possess physical biological forms. Dimensions 7 through 9 possess the etheric matter form.
    “These multidimensional electromagnetic fields are collectively referred to as the bio-energetic system or the aura field of a manifest form. The aura field has seven primary inner layers (i.e., bodies) which correspond to dimensional frequency bands 1 through 7. The aura field also has seven outer layers which represent the form-holding MORPHOGENETIC imprints for the seven inner layers of the aura field. The morphogenetic imprint holds the instructions and design for form-building in a type of digital or electronic encoding. The seven outer layers correspond to dimensional frequency bands 9 through 15.
    “The perceptions of your present races are focused within the middle range of the third dimension.  In order for humanity to evolve into higher dimensional fields, the frequency patterns of dimensions four, five and six must be brought into manifest expression with the energetic grid of Earth.  The frequencies or sound-tones must also become operational within the active DNA strands.  The energetic imprint of the DNA is carried with the personal morphogenetic field and consciousness after physical death of the body.  (Note: Morphogenetic fields are the form holding patterns through which matter forms. Rupert Sheldrake postulated on their existence, but proposed no physical mechanism.)  Whatever frequencies are contained with that imprint will determine the dimensional placement of the consciousness after death.   The ultimate success of DNA* building lies in the hands of the embodied consciousness who personally directs the process by the way in which personal energy is used and applied.

                *Note 1:  Our current scientific community is thoroughly confused about the multiple strands of DNA, declaring only a few as having a known usage – and calling the remainder “junk DNA.”  Over 98% of DNA has an unknown function!  However, if it were junk, the sequence of the “syllables” i.e., the nucleotides in DNA, should be completely random.  In fact, they are not random at all, and current scientists now believe that this DNA contains some kind of code with function completely unknown or undetermined.
    “(At death), you will move your consciousness through a dark tunnel, with a bright light at its end, the same effect as in a Near-Death-Experience (Note: the subject of much book investigative reporting).
    “Multiple reincarnational** identities represent portions of a person’s soul awareness evolving.   To the soul-self identity, the immediate incarnates in its incarnational family are recognized as living sub-personality fragments of its own identity whose reality simultaneously takes place with the dimensional bands contained within the soul-self’s DNA.  The DNA represents electro-magnetically encoded digital imprints of the other living portions of your identity.         
    **Note 2: Reincarnation occurs only in the first Harmonic Universe. “You reincarnate into multiple forms and situations because one lifetime is in no way sufficient time, nor does it offer sufficient exposures to enough diverse situations to give the fragment-spirit the understanding necessary.  The best way to learn about poverty, or being rich, or being helpless, or being powerful, or being female, or being male is by experiencing lifetimes in such circumstances.”  Book source: Andareon Theory communication.
    “Consciousness and matter are both composed of these units of electro-tonal energy and so both spiritual and scientific mastery are brought together through the applied knowledge of electro-tonal energy dynamics.   For the smallest units of energy in the cosmos you could find 800 billion billion units in an average 3 dimensional photon.  They represent the “divine substance” out of which the cosmos is composed.
    “There is an organizational intelligence and sentient creative force of vast proportion that is responsible for the design and creation of the cosmos, i.e., the Central Creative Force you call God***.   Members of the benevolent Guardian Alliance (Note: who communicated this book) are beings from higher reality fields, dimensions ten through fifteen, who have evolved beyond the manifestation of biology, physical and etheric matter substance into states of conscious pre-matter form who appear as forms of light when they enter your system**** or, occasionally take on the appearance of biological forms in order to interact with Earth life, for example: Jesus from the 12th dimension. 
    ***Note 3: The GOD of the Old Testament Yahweh was an Ancient Astronaut as demonstrated by the Jewish-American scholar Zecharia Sitchin who authored multiple books based on historical Middle Eastern archeological hieroglyphic interpretations.

    “The value of the TREASURE is literally priceless since it could not be purchased with all the material wealth of all worlds. The asset is the SECRET OF OVERCOMING DEATH.

    “Few indeed are aware of the totality of their being. Existing within and around the physical bodies are IMPERISHABLE bodies.  These other bodies interpenetrate the physical body as well as extend beyond it. The various bodies which constitute the total potential of all developing human beings are: the physical matter body, the astral (antimatter) body, the etheric (Christ) body, the mental body and the emotional body.  It is these other bodies that constitute the phenomenon referred to as an aura (NOTE: Which has been proven to exist by special photographic techniques, see Wikipedia aura paranormal). The reason that the aura is not readily seen by most people is that its range of vibration renders it invisible to the physical eye. One’s CONSCIOUSNESS and other higher faculties reside in this “spiritual” (frequency existing) body and are INDESTRUCTIBLE.
    “WHEN PHYSICAL DEATH OCCURS, THESE OTHER BODIES LEAVE THE PHYSICAL BODY AS A UNIT AND BECOME THE OPERABLE VEHICLE THROUGH WHICH THE CONSCIOUSNESS CONTINUES TO FUNCTION IN OTHER DIMENSIONS!  While one is no longer physically incarnated, the astral body houses the other bodies after the transition called death. Unlike the physical body, however, the astral body is inviolable, (i.e.,incorruptible).
    “Let us examine some of the functions which the various aspects of the astral body serve while one is physically incarnated.  The subconscious is the mechanism which performs those vital functions that produce automatic actions and reactions on the physical level. Examples of this would be breathing, beating of the heart, blinking of the eyelids, digesting, etc. It is the subconscious which permits the formation of habits and which must be reprogrammed in order to break habits and existing beliefs.  The subconscious however does not have the capacity for rational thought.  Everything that is recorded in the brain is also recorded in the subconscious.  The subconscious contains total memory information FROM ALL PREVIOUS LIVES AND EXPERIENCES (as recorded in the energetic DNA).
    “The brain is the memory bank while physically incarnated. The subconscious mind is the memory bank for your total experiences. Whatever is recorded in the brain is recorded automatically in the subconscious as well.
    “Consider that quality of the astral body that is called soul.  Think of a cassette tape (i.e., the energetic DNA).  When the tape is blank, it can be said to contain no soul.  Now fill it with recordings.  What we have done is to impart attributes to a previously empty cassette.  We have thus CREATED SOUL.  When the life ends, the tape (i.e., the surviving energetic DNA) is filled with that essence called SOUL.  Within the total soul are many completed “tapes” containing the records of all incarnational experiences.  The completed “tapes” form the memory bank, or the akashic record of each individual being.  Whatever information is contained (from past lives), whether it be good or evil, true or false, right or wrong, correct or incorrect, can and does influence your well-being in your present life.  This is why many people go through lifetime after lifetime making the same mistakes over and over again.  In summary, the subconscious and the soul lack discernment. They cannot reason.
    “The conscious part of your mental body provides you with the powers of thinking.  Thinking is the capacity to discern, reason, rationalize, to exercise self-discipline, to deduce, to employ logic, to analyze, inquire, synthesize, judge, investigate, observe, etc.  THE BRAIN IS NOT THE MIND.  It is one of the instruments that the mind uses while you are manifested in the physical planes (dimensions) of expression.  The mental body has three distinct parts or levels: the conscious, the subconscious, and the superconscious.  A primary function of the mind or mental body is to produce awareness, an incredible tool in the development of potential.  As a component of the mental body, the subconscious has the ability and the capacity to record all sensual, mental, and emotional, and spiritual experiences and to “play back” this information, functioning like a tape recorder (i.e. the DNA).

    “The etheric (or Christ) body has been described by enlightened writers.  Often referred to as the light body due to the effect produced in the atomic structure of this body by the speed of the electron movement within the atoms which equals or exceeds the speed of light.  Achieving the status of etheric (or Christhood) confers upon the recipient many powers not found in the lesser bodies. Jesus represents the best example in history.  Among the powers he was known to have demonstrated were: bilocation, levitation, materialization, healing, etc.  Jesus constantly reminded his followers that they could do all of these and even greater things.
    “When one achieves the full etheric (or Christ) vibration, then death will no longer have dominion over him.  It gives him the power to alter his vibrations at will, and thus he can freely travel through the physical, astral and etheric vibrations.
    “It is the emotional body that gives you a feeling nature, i.e., that produces the capacity for experiencing all levels of emotion such as joy and sorrow, love and hate, compassion and malevolence, ecstacy and depression, pleasure and pain, excitement and indifference. The emotional capacity is experienced on all levels of expression.
    “The superconscious is the functioning mind of the etheric or Christ self.  What is required is that man of earth become aware of the existence of the incredible power of the superconscious mind and desire its attainment. To give you some idea of the scope of the superconscious mind, think of a rating scale numbered from 1 to 10 as representing the range of man’s conscious mind in Earth. Then classify the most outstanding geniuses of Earth history using 10 as the ultimate that is attainable. You will find that such men as Einstein, Swedenborg, Whitman, etc., would be rated from perhaps 7 through 9. By comparison, a pure state of superconsciousness would range into the hundreds or thousands. It is quite easy to conclude from this, is it not, that the means exist to literally transform Earth into a paradise by educating mankind as to its potential.
    “These bodies constitute man’s potential as he continues to evolve within the “system.”  Each aspect of our total self is indispensable to the function and purpose of our total being.

    The hard problem of consciousness may eventually be determined by biologists and other scientists. This implies there may exist a primary entity before mental activity commences. For example, there is a continuous flow of energy throughout the universe that becomes converted into matter. And there is a continuous flow and transfer of ‘information’ within and between brain cells that becomes converted into mental activity, but the primary entity is not recognised because it is ‘silent’ and therefore only metal activity is valued. Living cells are intelligent, they ‘know’ how to function and are able to cooperate and communicate with each other, yet they are devoid of mental properties. Although matter and energy are both manifestations of the same fundamental entity, there is an entity within all living things that is relative to the biological proto-consciouness dimension. This entity causes instantaneous brain cell activity, whereas when energy is utilised for mental activity, it is relative to matter and to time because the mind is mechanistic and relies on ‘information’ that was acquired in the past. When the mind is in a meditative state, or during deep sleep, it can be said that it is part of the natural dimension of consciousness, or momentarily in the dimension of ‘nothingness’. Examples are, during deep meditation, or between one thought and another, there is a ‘silent moment’ before images, thoughts or dreams commence, yet one is not brain dead during those ‘timeless’ moments. Thoughts or memories may seem real, but in the true sense, most, like dreams, are never real. Each event the mind experiences is made up of separate time-frame images. As soon as the mind thinks it is experiencing a present moment – it’s already in the past because it takes time for the cognitive mind to function. Any form of matter, including the human body and brain and the cells within are not just matter, they contain energy. Brain cells and all other living cells are merely vehicles for this Universal Consciousness, but without energy vehicles cannot function. When conditioned thoughts end, enlightenment can transform the mind, but to rely on false knowledge and beliefs, there is nothing real to find. In a way, wisdom is the cessation of thought because the ending of preconceived concepts is the beginning of wisdom. The mind tends to forget that it is similar to a computer, if false information or belief systems exist then conclusions will be wrong. When what is known or what is owned is overvalued then the mind tends to forget that thoughts and ‘things’ and life are only temporarily real. This planet and all life on it will change or come to an end in the future, yet the future, the past and time, are mainly constructs of minds. When a secondary consciousness occurs in living things, then it seems that languages, spiritual dimensions and gods are creations of human mental activities. But, it is energy (not temporal matter) that remains the fundamental property of everything in the universe – including consciousness.


    Dennis Balson

    Creative forces have existed since the Big Bang. Matter, energy and organic compounds are fundamental entities that exist throughout the universe and within all living things. When this planet became suitable for the formation of life – in the form of living cells – that was the beginning of a particular type of natural intelligence. Some of these cells evolved into the basic materials of life and some amazingly are able to replicate themselves endlessly and others can communicate and cooperate with each other. Every cell has a nonphysical entity within. The entity within brain cells is primary, but mental activity is secondary. If it was not for this natural entity, minds wouldn’t be capable of thinking, but brains are merely vehicles for this Universal Intelligence, which is devoid of mental properties. Each form of life is inseparably linked to this Mystical entity. Every brain is different to every other because each occupies a different space, but each brain has a unique relationship to every other by possessing the same Consciousness. Once mental activity commences then each mind becomes a separate and independent entity. The consequences of overvaluing structured and normative forms of knowledge is to lose touch with the more intuitive and spontaneous forms of knowing. Wisdom is not the result of possessing more knowledge because wisdom is the cessation of thought. Mental activity can create illusions, therefore all knowledge and beliefs are constructs of the mechanistic mind, which overvalues ‘things’ and thoughts. However, the primary Consciousness, which is the entity that is necessary before the mind can function, is nonphysical. If the brain is hardwired so a to rely on ordinary thought systems, then the mind cannot be free to sense ‘what is‘. Without the primary entity, thoughts would never eventuate, and when they do, they (like dreams) are never real; the mind only imagines things to be real. When the mind is no longer imprisoned in the depths of the past, and when it ceases to be stupefied by what it believes, and when knowledge is devalued in favour of present experiences, then the meditative mind has the potential to ’sense’ the natural dimension. Brain cell activity ‘functions’ instantaneously, but mental activity functions in the line of time. For example, the mind can experience stars that no longer exist. Even a present experience is relative to what occurred in the ‘past’ because it takes time for the cognitive mind to function, however between one thought and another there is a silent moment where concepts do not exist; where the mind may experience a sensual wonder about the mysterious unknown. The mind usually responds to information that was acquired relatively recently, whereas this Universal entity existed since life began on this planet and probably millions years before. Information and the material universe are continually changing, but this Mystical entity never changes. Knowledge and intelligence can be compared and measured, but there is no comparison or measure for the Intelligence that exists in nature. If nothing existed before the Big Bang – that nothing became everything.

  4. I think the mind is mechanistic because it is the brain neurons that possess Universal Consciousness (Protoconsciousness) because they ‘know’ how to function and are capable of communicating and cooperating with each-other, yet are devoid of mental properties, whereas when mental activity commences then that is secondary because it takes time for the cognitive mind to function. Although learning is a different mental process to knowing, all knowledge is relative to the know; to the past, but in reality the past does not exist, there is only this present moment, which the conceptual mind can never comprehend. At first we must recognize that the brain neurons are conscious: They existed long before the human animal come into being.

  5. Can’t seem to experience any non-mental (nonexperiential) stuff. I guess material stuff just doesn’t exist. Berkeley must be right, even though his formulation probably wasn’t perfect.
