Re: BKs line of reasoning for the decomposition problem

Yes, j.joerg, DID is an extreme example, but we all have dissociated minds... I completely agree with all what you are saying. I just cannot see how this can be used as an argument for idealism. We do have associated minds just as much as dissociated. The recognition of a dissociated mental process...

BKs line of reasoning for the decomposition problem

Bernardo seems to rest his solution for the decomposition problem of idealism on the known phenomenon of dissociative identity disorder. This line of argument seems problematic to me: This mental condition only can develope, if extrem traumatizations occor in early childhood while the brain is still...

Re: I understand why BK is upset with Rovelli

As BK says, even stuck in a sensory deprivation tank with amnesia, we would have endogenous Awareness. Rovelli is ignoring this, isn't he? BK is assuming this. He is not knowing or proofing this. After all, what you experience in a deprivation tank is the neural input of the by far biggest sensory ...

Re: I understand why BK is upset with Rovelli

I could well imagine that talking of subject and object, of mind and matter, only makes sense in a relational framework and that a non-relational ontological primary (neither subject nor object and jet both at the same time) cannot be described, understood and made sense of in linguistic terms. An i...

Re: How does a dissociative boundary work?

Right, it's similar to simulation hypothesis where the simulation is indistinguishable from "reality" so you can not study the simulation code or the "boundary" interface as long as you are "within" the Matrix. But some physicists argue that we can still test whether w...

Re: How does a dissociative boundary work?

So the image of consciousness that we experience has no relationship what so ever with consciousness itself? How come then, that there are very specific and predictable changes in the experience of human consciousness when we manipulate the image of consciousness (brain) in very specific ways? Imag...

Re: How does a dissociative boundary work?

You are thinking about the boundaries in the space of the material world, but those are indeed illusory and have nothing to do with dissociative Markov boundaries that BK is talking about that occur in the space of the MAL consciousness. So the image of consciousness that we experience has no relat...

Combinations and dissociations of consciousness

I have heard BK (Idealism) discussing with Philip Goff (Panpsychism). I enjoyed the conversation but I felt pitty with Goff. However. It came down to an argument, that dissociation of consciousness is known as a psychiatric disorder, whereas Panpsychism is facing the combination problem. If you go i...

How does a dissociative boundary work?

I did not read too much of Bernardos books. I heard hours and hours of interviews though. It never came across to me, that I heard him explaining dissociative boundaries in detail. So my question is how does a dissociative boundary work and can it be described it scientifically? BK argues that livin...

Re: Can you help me with metaphysical Isms?

Being I can know for sure. [/i] And so how can one know this 'being' absent the awareness of it? I can just as well say that awareness is that which I know for sure, and I'm not sure what is added by naming it 'being.' Isnt that rather an epistemological question and not an ontological one? You can...
