Sep-27-21  rbd: <GSM> , if a child is raped , tortured , murdered then everybody says that it is wrong . So what do you mean when you say that "objective moral values do not exist "

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <rbd>--Even with things that are so obviously repugnant to seemingly everyone, people find rationalizations and exceptions. Genital mutilation of infants, without anesthetic, is regularly performed for religious reasons; if the Bible is to be believed, God murdered almost everyone in the Flood, children included, and killed the firstborn sons of the Egyptians; abortion is infanticide to some and not to others. All morality is subjective.

See , there are psychopaths ...There are people who never reach higher level of Moslow hierarchy...There are people who are not 'evolved' /mature.

All 'evolved'/mature people have compassion and intelligence and therefore they do not rationalize stupid, 'sinful' behaviour.

2) all 'evolved'/mature people have compassion and intelligence and they all would find rape/torture/murder of a child wrong and almost everyone capable of reaching that level of maturity- hence some moral values are objective.

3) what do you think , <GSM>

P.s. you and I both agree that concept of personal god is stupid..I believe that personal god does not exist ..There is no god other than us..We are eternal Absolute , body dies not us...So let us not talk about stupid concept of personal god.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <rbd>--Perhaps you have heard the expression, "There are no atheists in foxholes." I doubt that evolved people, or objective moral values, exist in foxholes either.
Sep-29-21  rbd: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: <rbd>--Perhaps you have heard the expression, "There are no atheists in foxholes." I doubt that evolved people, or objective moral values, exist in foxholes either.>

Your argument/reasoning is very messed up ,chaotic <GSM>

Let me bring some order , sanity to this conversation.

2) simulation hypothesis : this universe could be a computer simulation and homosapiens and everything else in it computer program - kind of like 'matrix ' movie.

If you disagree then I would explain the reasoning behind this hypothesis.

For now , I assume that you are in agreement with this hypothesis.

3) now question is - if you or I (or some far more intelligent species - aliens , may be ) create such a simulation , can they create objective moral values as a computer program in that simulation .

A simple yes or no would suffice for now .

Thank you. Regards.

Sep-29-21  rbd: Simulation hypothesis

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sim...

Sep-29-21  rbd: After this conversation on 'objective moral values' is over , I would request your help for another conversation , <GSM> , if you please.

2) my position is that Sam Harris , Richard Dawkins and other atheist/agnostic 'experts' have decisively defeated dogmatic fools like <big pawn>/<George Wallace> , <optimal play> , <ohiochessfan> , <thegoodanarchist> , <diceman> , <Keyser soze> ... In the debate on existence of personal god

3) consider it kind of peer review - with someone smart like you , I want to see if there are some holes in my reasoning.

4) after that , I may have a brief conversation on ultra stupid claim of dogmatic fools that '<keypusher> is a lib'

5) after that , I would be done with this site and may sleep soundly.

Thank you. Regards.

I don't know why you would assume that I'm in agreement with this hypothesis. I'm not, so I assume you'll explain the reasoning behind it.

Yes.

1) let us go step by step - one step at a time.

2) when homosapiens are dreaming , dream looks real (until they wake up)

Yes or no ?

Thank you . Regards.

Sep-30-21  rbd: Thank you for your help <GSM>

I want to increase depth/clarity of my understanding about these subjects before I leave this racist, rotten site.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <rbd>--<when homosapiens are dreaming , dream looks real (until they wake up)

Yes or no ? >

Speaking from personal experience, usually but not always.

Oct-01-21  rbd: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: <rbd>--<when homosapiens are dreaming , dream looks real (until they wake up) Yes or no ? >

Speaking from personal experience, usually but not always.>

Well.....

< A lucid dream is a type of dream where the dreamer becomes aware that they are dreaming ...
lucid dreams were a category of experience quite distinct from ordinary dreams >

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luc...

2) highest level of Moslow hierarchy is transcendence . At this level , one is always having delta brain wave activity (in addition , intense gamma brain wave activity co exists). This is the level of Buddha, Jesus , Lord Krishna et al - enlightenment. A lot of changes happen in the body including at the level of genes , before one reaches this level. Also , at this level , one has perfect signal/noise ratio - that is , no thought other than 'need of moment ' thought , no emotions like anger, greed, pride etc.

At this level , people presumably can 'see' their deep dreamless sleep as well as dream state.

Obviously you not in this state.

So , if you know that you dreaming when you dreaming , you having lucid dreams but then lucid dream are a different kind of experience.

So , when 'ordinary' homosapiens having ordinary dreams (as opposed to lucid dreams) , dreams look real to them.

Are we on the same page up to here , <GSM> ? Are we in agreement ?

Thank you . Regards.

Oct-01-21  rbd: Correction : replace 'presumably' with 'supposedly'

.

Oct-02-21  rbd: So far so good. This conversation with you is helping me increase depth/ clarity of my thinking/understanding , <GSM>.

Thank you for that , <GSM> . Regards.

Oct-02-21  rbd: Part 1

<Dreams feel so real, Blagrove [sleep scientist from Swansea university] says, because they are a simulation ...
Some dream scientists are attempting to tie dream research into the science of consciousness, which Blagrove says, is itself ultimately just a “simulation of the world”.  We never really notice this simulation when we’re dreaming because the “simulation is so good”. Or in other words, our dreams feel so real for the same reason life feels so real. Your suspicions are confirmed – we’re living in the Matrix.  >

https://www.newstatesman.com/scienc...

Oct-02-21  rbd: Part 2

Need I say more ?

Sleep scientist blagrove nailed it.

Dreams are simulation. In dreams we see infinite space , however , that is not 'real' - just appearance/illusion. All that 'infinite space' is within a very small volume occupied by our body.

Just like dream is simulation , it is possible that this world is also a simulation and this 'infinite space' of world is appearance/illusion - a simulation created using computer technology or some other means...

2)so , your question "why would you assume that I am in agreement with this hypothesis"

Two reasons : (i) when <johnlspouge> so enthusiastically mentioned in rogoffland that simulation hypothesis is a very strong/powerful argument , everybody except gang of dogmatic fools agreed, iirc. So I assumed that you agreed unless you missed it or were too busy to respond.

(ii) I thought that all smart people including sleep scientist balgrove were in agreement with this hypothesis and since you are a very, very, very , very , very smart person IMO , I assumed that you were in agreement.

So , are we on the same page up to here ? Are we in agreement up to here ? If yes , then I would proceed on to address your next point.

Thank you . Regards.

Oct-03-21  rbd: Looks like my work is done here in the forum of <Gregor samsa Mendel>

I learn from a scientist friend through emails (he is mostly 'peer review scientist' for me these days) and teach to the people who are not at my level - who are much less intelligent than me. So I taught and helped <Gregor samsa Mendel> who is intelligent but much much less intelligent than me.

Now , I would teach dogmatic fools in the forum of <keypusher> and after that I would be done with this racist, rotten site.

2) my 'goal' is to reach the intelligence level of that scientist friend of mine and then go all the way to the level of Buddha/Krishna Jesus using 'teachings of Jesus - infinite intelligence , infinite compassion , infinite bliss , infinite concentration/memory....

3) p.s. as I taught and helped <Gregor samsa Mendel> , it helped me expand my clarity/depth of understanding/thinking.

So , heartfelt thanks to <GSM>

Regards

Oct-04-21  rbd: Dogmatic fool <optimal play> is turning himself into a laughing stock in the forum of <keypusher> and I am defeating him mercilessly in the debate.

Everyone is invited to watch the delectable spectacle as dogmatic fools <thegoodanarchist> and other clowns are shown their places.

Thank you . Regards.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <rbd>--What I've heard about how scientists currently think about dreaming:

https://www.discovermagazine.com/mi...

Please don't use my forum as a launchpad to fire insults at other posters.

Oct-04-21  rbd: <Gregor samsa Mendel><Please don't use my forum as a launchpad to fire insults at other posters.>

See, I was so civil in the forum of <playground player> and focused on issues while <optimal play> and <thegoodanarchist> hurled personal insults/attacks at me and <playground player> never asked them to behave ....Perhaps he was testing my self control. Stories about my self control are legend - <keypusher> was wrong about that.

2) I hope nobody else needs to test my self control any more after my extraordinary display of self control in <pgp> forum and if anyone insults me in your forum , <GSM> , you would say like "I told <rbd> to behave and I am going to tell you to behave as well. "

Thank you

Regards.

Oct-04-21  rbd: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: <rbd>--What I've heard about how scientists currently think about dreaming: https://www.discovermagazine.com/mi...

You must be kidding!

I never asked you to read any linked article. I posted the relevant excerpts which supported my point and gave the link .

2) I made my point , viz. (i) dreams look real to homosapiens (ii) they are simulations often containing infinite space in the limited volume of human body (iii) so such a simulation is possible ...Homosapiens may not have technology , at present , to create such a simulation , but we can not rule out the possibility that some other entity (being or machine) has such 'technology'/ability and world is a simulation

3) and I provided relevant excerpts in support of my point and provided the links to article from where those excerpts were taken

4) don't give me some link to read the stuff.

If you disagree , provide refutation , give excerpts , if needed, in support of refutation and then only give me links.

Thank you <GSM> . Regards.

Oct-04-21  rbd: Update for precision :

we can not rule out the possibility that some other entity (being or machine) has such 'technology'/ability - <with or without volition (that is , spontaneously, involuntarily)>

.

Oct-04-21  rbd: So , this is the collaboration I have started with my friends - send bhajan of duration not more than 1 minute , in your own voice and I will do the same for you.

<R > sent this from gurubani.

2) Yesterday , <s> sent < 'itni shakti hame Dena data"> (Hindi) in his own voice

Oct-04-21  rbd: Point is to remove poisonous people and their conversations from mental space completely - <a n> for example

And fill mental space with great people and their conversations

Oct-04-21  rbd: Part 3

Soon , I would be done teaching Christian non dual mysticism to dogmatic people (I always take things to logical conclusion - well , almost always)

2) and then I would be gone from this poisonous , racist , rotten site forever.

Hallelujah!
