So then, what you are saying is that only beings who are Self Aware can have a soul.  That unless you are Self Aware, that Awareness cannot be transferred to another host upon death?  But if Self Awareness is not the soul, then it is a function of the brain is it not?  And what you are saying is that if a brain (i.e. animal brain) doesn't function to the point of Self Awareness, then the 'soul' is not produced by that brain?  In other words, (sorry, I'm just trying to get my head around this) the soul is the by-product of the human brain...and unless a brain is functioning at that level, then....I'm sorry, I just don't get how the brain creates the soul.

How does your brain create "you"?

Once you undestand that, it i easy to see how the brain creates the soul. The soul is the most wonderful   and unique thing about human beings, but it is not mystical or metaphysical. It is a real function of our mind, and hence of our brain.

It is technically feasible, although not yet  quite possible, for a human consciousness to be stored and transferred. and replicated many times. If this is done the soul transfers with the conscousness, even if the first organic host of that consciousness dies, and one person's soul may be reproduced into many individaul souls. From that point on, however, each soul will evolve as each person/host lives and learns via different life experiences. One such soul may grow and mature, another may diminish, depending on how the person lives and thinks. In biblical terms; one may be saved one may be damned In humanis tterms one may be a good person the other a destructive person.

The bible says we are judged on our thoughts as well as our deeds, and modern psychology and neurology shows how our thoughts burn paths in our brain which also tend to lead us to certain behaviours, for good or bad.
"The thought is father of the deed."

Control and modify your thoughts and you  not only control and modify your behaviour, you alter your brain function and modify your soul. And basically yes, only human level self awaenes is evovled enough to know the things which create a soul in  us. But animals and even artificial intellligences, which reach a similar stage of self awareness will inevitably also possess a soul, and face the same dilemmas/soul searching, each of us faces.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Mr. Walker, how are  you defining "soul"?

1.  The personality of an individual (mind, will, emotions)
2.  The spiritual component of a person which communicates with God.
3.  The combination of the previous two.
4.  Or .... ?

See my other posts, but basically the soul is a construct of our level of self awareness. It comes from abilities like knowing what actions will hurt others and what will help them. In knowing, we can chose our thoughts and our actions and thus the consequences of them.
We understand precisely how what we do will afect us, and other people, and the environment. This creates conflicts in us between primitive desires and logical thinking

. Going back a step these abilities stem from earlier awarenesses such as the difference betwen life and death, the permanance of death, the nature of linear time, the knowledge that we can delay and enhance gratification and basic needs for a time.

  Going forward in evolutionary terms  it involves intellectual and emotional feedback and an understanding that our mind creates almost everything we are. How we feel etc. Thus because we can understand and control our mind, and our actions, we have duties responsibilites etc  These include  just not acting in fear, anger, or from jealousy envy spite etc. but actually trying not to feel  fear anger,  jealousy, envy, spite etc. They are all emotions we can chose, or not, and can control by using our mind.

Ps the qualities of our mind which give us self awarenes also allow us to both recognise the presence of god (like we recognise any physical thing) and also to analyse catalogue describe and comunicate this information to others and also to create constructs of a "philosophical " or "theological" nature about the existence and form of god. (Like we create imaginative constructs about all sorts of things) and to communicate the  concetual symbolic form of the gods we create to other peoples minds where they come alive or become a part of the new mind, because all human minds are basically the same. If one human can understnad the concept of god then we all can. If one human can see god then we all can.

Many of those (and other ) abilities have clear incontrovertible evidences to support them. Yes there are artefacts of our mind and our psychology which predispose us towards some of these beliefs. But in other cases they are real and clear.

I'll just put this as honestly as I can, I don't believe you are using the word 'incontrovertible' correctly; there are few things that are as disputed as psychic abilities, telekinesis, and speaking with the dead.  I was mainly responding to your argument structure that I don't know that I think is valid:  being fooled about the existence of 'x' may be evidence that 'x' actually exists.  You seem very sure that these all actually do exist, so I'm curious as to why you think this fact has eluded so many people?  Hordes of scientists would be very interested in this good evidence, this is Nobel Prize level stuff if someone was to actually discover any of these purported phenomena were real.

CAn you explain a shot glass hovering/suspended in the air for long enough for the original 3 witnesses, who were moving furniture and found it behind a sofa, to call others into the room and observe it, before it fell half a metre to the floor. If you believe this happened and it was not set up by the observers, then it is inexplicable without resorting to "paranormal" explanations. Of course if you dont believe it happened, then there is no need to explain it.

No I can't explain a hovering shot glass, but you missed a step; why on earth should I believe that actually occurred?  You don't believe every claim that anyone makes do you? Of course I don't believe it happened, isn't that the rational response to someone on the internet just claiming something miraculous occurred?  I certainly don't know that this is inexplicable without resorting to the paranormal.  I do know that people are mistaken all the time, and more importantly that paranormal explanations have been offered for countless phenomena in the past and, at least with regards to things we can actually verify, have lost every time.

As far as your father, that seems a little too personal for me to criticize, although I think you probably know my opinion on the idea that you are actually viewing the past.  I'll definitely say though that I'm honestly happy that you have found an additional way regardless to connect with your father and feel closer to him, that's very cool.

Okay, if psychic abilities are real, why haven't they been demonstrated? Why aren't we all aware of them? Surely if there was any shred of evidence that they existed, we would have no reason to doubt.

All those people who go around claiming like kids that they can levitate objects or read minds are cringe worthy, even worse when it's adults who claim such idiocy and have nothing to show for it other than hackneyed, lame and convoluted excuses full of conflated hogwash.

Please, show me the proof; if it's real and people can do it then all I require is a simple demonstration and I'm sure many others would like that too. Is that too much to ask of you psychics and seers? Can you drop the bull**** and stop being so cryptic about it? Make me believe.  Do a video, a public demonstration; get tested by physicists...anything!

I KNOW many paranormal and supernatural things have indpendent reality because of  nearly 60 years of ongoing daily personal experience with them.

Transferrable proofs are harder, but anyone there at the time of an event will also know it is real.  Thus these things do not always happen just in a person's mind or perception. And i test everything in lif eusing the same evidences and realities, in part BECAUSE i have lived the life i have. The only other rational explanation is ongoing which could explain some of the events if not the advice and protection i get, is everyday coincidence, and that is so statisticaly improbable as to be impossible. Incontrovertible evidences are the same evidences we use all the time ot establish the validity /indpendent reality of something Lots of scientists know they are real also but  because they are not easily amenable to laboratory experimentaion  it is hard to establish scientific proofs. ANd most scientists never bother to try.

As i said if you dont believe the story of the shot glass then that is your choice. I am  more open to belief because of myown experiences. But also i trusted the witneses, my neice and great neices/nephew aged from 40 to older teenagers, and the circumstances were so mundane and prosaic as to be believable. Eg all sober, middle of the day shifting house, and another 3 independent witness who also saw the glass suspended in the air. "Poltergeist activity" is, by the way, the most common and documented example of the paranormal. MAny reputable scientists accept its existence, even if they dont understand the science behind it.

  ANd i understand your reluctance to comment on my father, but it goes further than that. I am a history teacher and amateur historian. I use travel to the past to visit things like my local hospital in the last century.  I observe and make notes, talk to doctors nurses of the time etc., then research to find how accurate my observations are. I also travel around the world using obe and then use the internet to confirm details. I have been doing this since the 1950s, but the internet makes confirmation much easier as long as one is not tempted to cheat.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

So it's not your job to prove your claims but your friends and student's? I'll say, that sounds a lot like something a god would do...you don't have a god complex do you?

I understand you don't need to prove anything to anyone but considering you have ancillary abilities that most humans do not, don't you think it would benefit the rest of mankind in that they would know that there is much more to life than we know? you would be conduit of sorts for bringing humans closer to the truth and making the world a better place, why would god complain about that, it's what he wants right? I'd love to believe in a greater force so long as said belief was backed up by rational evidence; that would be knowledge and true.

Wanting proof and evidence is not a good enough "cause" for a reading, because most are not on this site to showboat their gifts, but to share. Why don't you head into the forums where some are offering readings...you may get an answer or you may not. Better yet, look in the area where you reside and go take the time to hunt one down, pay them and then come back here and tell us what happened. Good Luck!

everyone is given a chance at making a home run...

Of course i have a god complex :innocent:  Doesnt everyone? My point is that witnessed physical events are not imagined ones. If an event has twenty or more witnesses, as many of mine do because i am in front of that many teenagers for most of the day, then  the event is obviously physical, real and not occuring in my mind.

To take an outrageous example; suppose i levitated up to the ceiling in front of a class of 25 people and unscrewed an electric light bulb, then descended withoit  and gave it to the class genius., Now even if i could never do that in a controlled laboratory experiment, and even if i didnt know and couldnt explain HOW i did it,   it was still real and physical, because 25 individual sets of  eyes and minds saw it  happen, and recorded it happening in their memories.. I and they would KNOW it was possible and tha tit happened,.

Everything i do is natural. All supernatural and paranormal things are natural. We just dont understand the way they are integrated in to the natural order of things as yet. I dont know how i read minds etc but it is just as natural as using a machine to do so. The brain IS an organic machine and can probably do anything a man made machine is devised to do in emulating the brain. So if we can build a machine that reads a persons brain, our own brain can probably already do that naturally. Our body translates thoughts into actions in our body Our machines can extend this to remote activation and control. Why then shouldnt our mind and body be able to do this quite naturally?

i do all the things you mention to help peole now. And anyone who listens can learn.  I am not special. These abilities are part of being human But YOU have to access them Thats just the way it works.

I DO make the world a better place. Hundreds of people, especially children, are alive now because of me (and my wife)  For twenty years we have fed directly over a hundred young children  (different ones over time) in the devloping countries and educated a number of others. Over 40 years we have donated  over  half a million dollars to many aid organisations and individual peole in the developing world. Thousands are better off, many have work, education, and better health.

We supply water, sanitation, education, crop starters, training for women who want to start a business. We also give several thousands for animal welfare each year, and write to govts and politicians on many issues. We live a sustainable life and have a low ecological footprint . We care for many young disturbed and abandoned children in our home and are now into our second generation with some of these kids.

I  have taught thousands of children/teenagers, and many of them come up to me, as adults and tell me how i changed their lives around. I have never had an adult  whom I taught as a child come up to me with anything but respect or gratitude for my teaching, and today I am teaching the children of children I taught 20-30 years ago. A few more years and it will be the grand children.
You are right. Evidence and rational thought provides knowledge. I do not believe in anything, but nor do i disbelieve in anything. What i do not know, I suspend opinion on .


If i tell you you can do something, that wont help you do it, but if you believe in it yourself you can probably do it, and so personal belief/ knowledge/realisation, is more important than being told anothers truthor tha tsomething is real and possible for you. None the less I have spent 8 years or so on UM telling people that this is the normal condition for humanity,nNot the limited version most people settle for. But it wont work until you accept it will work or until you see it in action in your own life.

Yes you could as easily say that, and depending on your definition of love you might be correct.

i would argue that you cant have evidence of human type love from animals because they do not have the intellectual capacity to conceptualise and chose love as humans do.

A better comparison is to say you know your house, or your partner, or your animals exist, because of  your daily interaction with them. That is something which can be physically known. You can know how your partner thinks and feels, because you can ask them, and they can intellectualise and verbalise an understandable response.

It may or may not be the truth, but communication and knowing is possible between humans.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
