Free Falling into Abstraction of Consciousness We are on the precipice of a new abstraction of consciousness. A critical junction in the evolution of mankind. The technologies of Artificial Intelligence (AI), genetic modifications, quantum computing, surgical implants, and virtual realities are building the components for humans to enter an alternative form of reality. Shows like [...]

Pleroma’s Void Chapter 1.2 – Amos Severed

By | July 16th, 2018|Chapter 1, Christianity, Conscioiusness, Neurology, Pleroma's Void|0 Comments

Pleroma's Void Continued “I’m thirsty.” Amos rasped through his cracked throat. The doctor turned and considered Amos through flat eyes. “You’ll get water if you tell President Belial how you accessed Kairos.” Kairos, the military code name for Pregnant Time, was a highly structured singularity in space; an apparent life form that offered either a [...]

WestWorld and Consciousness

The interpretation of consciousness in WestWorld, like Evolved and my current project Pleroma's Void, asks deep questions about the nature of the mind. What is consciousness? Is it simply a result of all the physical stuff going on in our heads? Or, is there something else, non-physical? These questions drill down into questions like: What [...]

Spiritual Consciousness – Supraconscious

By | January 14th, 2018|Christianity, Conscioiusness, Evolved, Metaphysics, Neurology, Psychology, Spiritual, Supraconscious|0 Comments

Science recognizes the limitations of our consciousness to perceive our world. Our mind filters out "noise," categorizes to aid in recognition, predicts to save energy, and misses objects in front of us. Furthermore, our minds are filled with biases based on our past experiences. Scientists have strong evidence of our faulty perception. Spiritual consciousness attempts [...]

World Needs More Philosophers

Humanity is on the cusp of redefining the meaning of life. We need to understand what that means. Advancements in Artificial Intelligence, Genetic Engineering, Brain Implants, Mixed Reality, Uploaded Brains, and many other fields of research are about to blow our minds. Technology is pushing us into a realm of potentially wondrous revolutionary new ways to [...]

Objective vs. Subjective – Are We Becoming Zombies?

By | October 13th, 2015|Christianity, Spiritual, You|0 Comments

Science and religion have historically had a tension between them. Science's goal is primarily to explain the world objectively (how do things work?), which often is extrapolated using subjective narratives (Lawrence Krauss). Religion's primary goal is to understand the world subjectively (more the "why me" question), which often uses objective language as a basis of [...]

Metaphysical “Choices” – Consciousness, Part 2

By | October 9th, 2015|Evolved, Metaphysics|0 Comments

Can a silicon-based machine achieve consciousness? It is becoming an increasingly pressing question as scientists move closer to artificial intelligence. Yet we don't understand our own consciousness, so how would we know? Maybe it already has happened... We don't understand what is consciousness, how consciousness came to exist, or why it exists. Because we don't [...]

Metaphysical “Choices” – Consciousness

By | September 17th, 2015|Evolved, Metaphysics, You|2 Comments

Consciousness is something we intuitively believe we understand. After all, in many ways it is who we are personally. Yet try to define it and the meaning becomes elusive. American Philosopher Thomas Nagel describes another organism as conscious when we mean "there is something it is like to be that organism... something it is like [...]
