Let see, a car get 30 mpg, the tank holds 10 gals so running at a constant 60 mph, then what does gravity have to do with the distance the car will be drivable. Say your body is your car and your have 120 years gas tank, so seems that time is more a reflective perspective of our living days???

Consiousness is a emergant of the human brain, thus consiousness can not exist without the phyiscal brain. Essence (consciousness) precedes existence. You can think the reverse but I think you would be confused. I know that you can't prove it. You did have reason to be confused about my previous statement. I mixed up your statement as 'the brain can exist w/o consciousness' which could be scary but is not what you said. Though I am conscious my brain does get things mixed up sometimes.

So our lifetime is a limited capacity tank. Seems we must have been designed then...

Consiousness is a emergant of the human brain, thus consiousness can not exist without the phyiscal brain. Correction, I did have it right the first time. If consciousness is an emergent of the brain then the brain existed before it was conscious. The possibilities of what can emerge from the brain by pure chance scares me.

I know that you can't prove it.So you can prove that consciousness existed before the first life form arose? No wait, you can't either.We've got evidence of what existed before life formed, you've got... well nothing. Correction, I did have it right the first time. If consciousness is an emergent of the brain then the brain existed before it was conscious. The possibilities of what can emerge from the brain by pure chance scares me. Yeah, just look at the straw man that emerged from yours. ... [More]

No, I can only state with absolute certainty that neither my assertion or yours is provable. The difference being that my assertion makes sense and yours is nonsense. You have nothing. Suppose you posted your so called proof on here? It can't prove what formed said pre-conscious matter. Any proof is non credible. Yeah, just look at the straw man that emerged from yours. If unguided processes frighten you, you... [More]

You said it yourself, you won't support your claims, then again you couldn't if you wanted to.Coupled with your earlier declaration that any counter view is foolish, it appears this is nothing more than a religious convi...

Coupled with your earlier declaration that any counter view is foolish, it appears this is nothing more than a religious conviction. Neither of our assertions can be proved. If I could prove mine I'd publish it widely, not on here. You suugest that their is indisputable evidence that matter existed before consciousness. I know that such evidence lacks credibility. Man hasn't even proven that there is no life outside of earth. If we wer... [More]

You suugest that their is indisputable evidence that matter existed before consciousness. I know that such evidence lacks credibility. Man hasn't even proven that there is no life outside of earth. If we were to prove that matter preceded us that doesn't prove that it preceded consciousness.And yet every example of consciousness has come from biological organisms composed of matter. Life outside of earth isn't going to change that.My religious beliefs or lack of are again not pertinent. Your special pleading implies otherwise.

I understand where you are coming from, Its a very nice and interesting theory, and myself once thought as you. however, I do not beleive conisousness came first. Cheers for the Chat
