All right anons, I wanna build my philosophy a little more, so please say anything about what is your belief, if you have any morals, your thoughts on them, and why do you want to keep them, or any stories on how you got those beliefs and ideas about life. We can also talk about what we disagree on and build it from that point.10 replies (and 2 image replies) omitted. Click here to view.
I'll start with mine, my belief is heavily religious, like being gay is a sin and all that, my morals is to help anyone, even if it's an enemy if I can, and my thoughts on them is that I'm still learning about them, why I do want to keep them is that it has help a lot of my friends, and some family members if I can, also some people that I don't really know since I feel from my past, it has hurt me so much letting out my anger and holding on into something I see negative so much that I was keeping myself away from others, which cause me to become more lonely, even if I was enjoying it. After that, I fall into depression once I make a mistake in my life that someone shamed me for, and a second one as well. I moved on, but I learn to thank that person for that, since it cause me to want to learn about my beliefs, morals, and ideas more to make sure it fits me perfectly without hurting anyone, since it has helped me become who I am here, which got me into philosophy that also help me alot, with it causing me to find people that I really thank for helping me build my sense of care, love, and my ways of helping others, and lucky, found you guys from it. I don't care if you have different beliefs than me, since just being here meeting new people is already welcoming, it has been 7 months since I've joined, and I enjoy being here if I've been active.
>>1779>There's no soul, consciousness is a program.
then show me the source
Where does consciousness arise? That's one of the most fascinating questions there is. Note however that it's not my intent to answer with my theory to all the possible questions, because I think that as humans we need to accept that we can't know everything right now. And the brain is one of the things we're still not too familiar with
That being said big part of what I already wrote is speculation, so some more won't hurt.
What is consciousness? Is it an internal dialog aware of itself? What is an internal dialog? a flow of concepts and ideas, closely tied to logic, which tends to follow a line (of thought).
It's processing upcoming information. Another fundamental aspect is our ability to see patterns. It would be interesting to try to see if it's possible to implement some very simple dumbed down "consciousness" in a thing like prolog (a logic programming language). But I'm sure people much more cultured and wise than me must have thought about it and tried it.
Anyway the idea is that if you take a really close look it might become not that absurd to think that consciousness emerges from simpler things, the same way computer object detection in images emerges from a lot of simple operations (in the neurons of the neural network)
I'm pretty sure there are books and books on the subject which treat it way less superficially than I do.
Lol I didn't mean to make it that way but it kinda fits
Oh and sorry if I sound like I know exactly what I'm talking about and everyone else is wrong. This is just my opinion, really. Not any more valuable that anyone else's
