Ok I'm going back to PD

2017-10-01 12:07:42 UTC  

@!Co-Owner! simply put: to make choices. We make millions of them each day subconsciously.

2017-10-01 12:08:07 UTC  

No but the mind

2017-10-01 12:08:17 UTC  

When you're actively -------

2017-10-01 12:08:19 UTC  

i was gonna say to think critically but not many people can do that as it is

2017-10-01 12:08:21 UTC  

Fill in the space

2017-10-01 12:08:42 UTC  

Critically thinking isn't exactly but it is thinking

2017-10-01 12:12:08 UTC  

We have the mind to think

2017-10-01 12:12:24 UTC  

The mind is the processing center for all of the visual/audio and olfactory sensory input we receive constantly and continuously.

2017-10-01 12:12:32 UTC  

That's the brain

2017-10-01 12:12:43 UTC  

I mean the actual mind mind

2017-10-01 12:13:01 UTC  

The mind PROCESSES this. The brain is the motherboard.

2017-10-01 12:13:37 UTC  

I don't think you're thinking of the same thing as I

2017-10-01 12:13:50 UTC  

When I am told to close my eyes and imagine

2017-10-01 12:14:00 UTC  

That's the mind I'm taking about

2017-10-01 12:14:55 UTC  

Ok. If you close your ryes and imagine a boat, the first thing you'll see is the last time you saw a boat.

2017-10-01 12:15:53 UTC  

Then your mind 'catalog' will continue backwards from there. Giving you boats based off of a timeline of you seeing/using boats.

2017-10-01 12:15:58 UTC  

Not exactly

2017-10-01 12:16:20 UTC  

I just pictured a sketch of a boat when you said that, I've never seen the sketch of it

2017-10-01 12:17:09 UTC  

Or, your mind will show you the most positive experience you had on a boat. I thought of boats, and my immediate thought was sailing with my dad.

2017-10-01 12:18:00 UTC  

Nope

2017-10-01 12:18:02 UTC  

@!Co-Owner! Ah. Are you sure? You could've been flipping through a magazine, saw it as you drive by a shop. The mind takes in EVERYTHING.

2017-10-01 12:18:32 UTC  

I know about how you dream and see faces you see anywhere like on tv but

2017-10-01 12:18:36 UTC  

This boat

2017-10-01 12:18:41 UTC  

I've never seen it

2017-10-01 12:19:25 UTC  

Did you ever try to read the book a movie was based off of AFTER you saw the movie? It kind of sucks.

2017-10-01 12:19:41 UTC  

I did yes

2017-10-01 12:20:06 UTC  

All you see in the characters is the actors and not the authors visualization of the characters.

2017-10-01 12:20:18 UTC  

Mhm

2017-10-01 12:20:57 UTC  

I am validating that the mind is a catalog processor by using that as an example.

2017-10-01 12:21:43 UTC  

Ok well when I'm thinking about morality, how the universe was made, why am I here, what doth life etc

2017-10-01 12:21:53 UTC  

What catalog am I reading through

2017-10-01 12:23:04 UTC  

@!Co-Owner! Ah. Well, there is the environment you grew up in. That is a BIG factor in how you interpret the world. Also, belief in a god. Faith. That is another big one.

2017-10-01 12:23:17 UTC  

as in 'why were people given the ability to think for themselves at all and not just follow their instincts all the time like animals?'

2017-10-01 12:23:32 UTC  

I grew up in Australia

2017-10-01 12:23:42 UTC  

I was a hard atheist

2017-10-01 12:23:54 UTC  

But here I am

2017-10-01 12:24:52 UTC  

Ah. I hear you. And i traveled the same road that led me here too. Lots of preconceived notions have been shed.

2017-10-01 12:25:42 UTC  

So you were like me and have ended in the same destination?

2017-10-01 12:26:29 UTC  

Instead of: I AM GOING TO MAKE THE WORLD **MY** PLACE!
I now go with: I AM PART OF THIS WORLD.

2017-10-01 12:26:57 UTC  

@!Co-Owner! Uh, like religious?
