On Pure Consciousness, Singularity, Metaphoric Phantoms & Mindnature: Part 2 from Administrator's blog

Ramachandran’s Metaphoric Phantoms of Matter in Mind: Telling Tales on the Tell-Tale Brain (by Graham P. Smetham): Abstract: In his recent book The Tell-Tale Brain Vilayanur Ramachandran explores in great metaphoric detail his materialist notion that consciousness is nothing more than the brain’s neurons linking and resonating together in synesthetic-metaphoric patterns determined by materialist-mechanistic evolution. In this exploration of his account of metaphor and language, taking account of the actual evidence provided by evolutionary development biology and quantum physics, we find that his naïve materialist perspective of how brain functioning creates the world of meaning is nothing more than a phantom in his brain. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/151

Mindnature: Origin of Physicality & Mathematics (by Graham P. Smetham): Abstract: The existence of the irrational numbers indicates that reality is not a structure of inherent existence; it is a structure within emptiness. In other words it is because of the background fluid and indeterminate nature of emptiness that any reality can function at all, a remarkable insight on the part of Buddhist philosophy dramatically verified by quantum physics. And this ultimately ‘empty’ nature is revealed by the very fact that such fluidly precise and yet in a sense ungraspable conceptual procedures have to be employed within mathematical analysis. If both the realm of mentality and physicality emerge from a deeper level of universal Mindnature then it is surely not such a great mystery that mathematics, itself a product of mind, produces the conceptual patterns generated and followed by the ‘physical’ functioning of reality. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/152

Exciting New Era of Particle Physics (by Philip E. Gibbs): Abstract: The editors of JCER ask me to share with JCER readers this article appeared in PSTJ V2(7) and I happily accept. I don’t think there has ever been a moment quite like this in physics before. Within the next few months, weeks or even days we will learn something new about the universe that will change our thinking forever. I don’t mean something like a little CP asymmetry or a new observation of neutrino physics. These things are great but they just pose questions that we cannot answer yet. What we are about to learn is going to generate so many new ideas in physics that the arXiv will run out of four digit numbers so that people have to start posting their papers in viXra. Am I exaggerating? Let us see take a look. http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/153

The Dawn of a Brave New World in Fundamental Physics (by Huping Hu, Maoxin Wu): Abstract: Max Planck once said “I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” The current issue of sister journal, Prespacetime Journal V2(7), is celebrating the great successes of LHC and Tevatron through a series of Special Reports written by Philip Gibbs, several Editorials and other regular pieces. Here we share some of that excitement with the dear readers of JCER. We are in the super-connected Age of Internet and technological wonders made possible through science. There is no doubt that we are also at the dawn of a brave New World in fundamental physics and science overall. Every genuine truth seeker should seize this moment. Here we briefly discuss: (1) the great unknown in light of the great success of LHC and Tevatron, (2) Higgsless models published in Prespacetime Journal; and (3) the search for the genuine “God Particle.” What we have witnessed so far is the rise of collaborative spirit in science. We urge all genuine truth seekers to work together to make the brave New World a reality. We conclude with a poem “A Praise to Consciousness.” http://jcer.com/index.php/jcj/article/view/154
