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 12:18:02 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 12:20:57 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  

I now go with: I AM PART OF THIS WORLD.

2017-10-01 12:26:57 UTC  

@!Co-Owner! Uh, like religious?

2017-10-01 12:27:05 UTC  


2017-10-01 12:28:39 UTC  

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.

2017-10-01 12:29:21 UTC  

Ok well enjoy, I would be inviting you to a server of mine if it weren't nuked

2017-10-01 12:29:28 UTC  

You would be Christian within the hour

2017-10-01 12:29:59 UTC  

@!Co-Owner! Well, aren't we just overly sure of ourselves.

2017-10-01 12:30:14 UTC  

Be careful with that.

2017-10-01 12:30:26 UTC  

It could backfire on you.
