Message from !Co-Owner! in The Right Server #serious_chat
The mind is the processing center for all of the visual/audio and olfactory sensory input we receive constantly and continuously.
That's the brain
I mean the actual mind mind
The mind PROCESSES this. The brain is the motherboard.
I don't think you're thinking of the same thing as I
When I am told to close my eyes and imagine
That's the mind I'm taking about
Ok. If you close your ryes and imagine a boat, the first thing you'll see is the last time you saw a boat.
Then your mind 'catalog' will continue backwards from there. Giving you boats based off of a timeline of you seeing/using boats.
I just pictured a sketch of a boat when you said that, I've never seen the sketch of it
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.
@!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.
I know about how you dream and see faces you see anywhere like on tv but
I've never seen it
Did you ever try to read the book a movie was based off of AFTER you saw the movie? It kind of sucks.
I did yes
All you see in the characters is the actors and not the authors visualization of the characters.
I am validating that the mind is a catalog processor by using that as an example.
Ok well when I'm thinking about morality, how the universe was made, why am I here, what doth life etc
What catalog am I reading through
@!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.
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?'
I grew up in Australia
I was a hard atheist
But here I am
Ah. I hear you. And i traveled the same road that led me here too. Lots of preconceived notions have been shed.
So you were like me and have ended in the same destination?
Instead of: I AM GOING TO MAKE THE WORLD **MY** PLACE!
I now go with: I AM PART OF THIS WORLD.
Still getting my feet wet. There are greater things out there. It's my place to observe and interpret and put my faith in another power than mine. Thus the comment above.
Ok well enjoy, I would be inviting you to a server of mine if it weren't nuked
You would be Christian within the hour
Be careful with that.
It could backfire on you.
