Oh, you are better than I imagined. A functional depressive just like me!
I appreciate that you could post at all.
Interesting that you linked to Westworld. I have never watched it, but I had read that it was in part inspired by one of my favourite psychologists Julian Jaynes.
His 1976 book “Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind” is a stand out in the world of consciousness studies.
It will continue to be almost completely ignored because 90% of the world believe in God (or equivalent) and his research completely craps on the traditional idea.
God arose evolutionarily, as a outworking of ancestor worship, which was a fundamental aspect of the “schizophrenic” nature of human consciousness 5-9 thousand years ago.
I appreciate how you imagine that what you describe is a slam dunk conclusion, so “why bother”.
I guess you are on the next level of Dante’s circles of hell, imagining the is nothing at all which could possibly come of your contribution.
I just got off the phone an hour ago, after a 2 hour conversation. I realised that I really am trying to convince the unconvincable.
Not that I know what I am talking about.
I suppose all I am saying is that whatever you think is a “fait accompli” probably isn’t, and the idea that you have nothing to share is obviously false;
There is plenty you are feeling, not understanding, and otherwise “sweeping under the rug”.
I have watched over a decade of amateur soccer, or more accurately, walked around various suburbs contemplating life while it is playing, and I hope that someone wins the world cup.
I think that is the safe bet.
