It was the silence of her thoughts that awakened him He looked at her beautiful dolphin like shape; her legs folded within the larger transmutation she had undergone yesterday, her turquoise bluish tint reflected by the morning light.

Follow-up to: Knowing beyond science and mathematics? I think I have to clarify why I mentioned mathematics in my recent post -- Knowing beyond science and mathematics? -- as a way of knowing in addition to science and separated from other logical systems. First of all, I'm only at the beginning of my long journey towards a decent...

Hard to simulate, but easy to amplify, my experience of consciousness, is interactions, of an infinite number of abstractions. The universe is the set of all permutation, and combination of abstract information. I am math. Derive me, and if I could derive you too, we would have a strange-loop confusing the future you. But what of the...

In most organizations we're tempted to hide such Individual Action for fear of blame, but doing so costs the...

The mental life of your common or garden human, however, is a lot more complicated. That's because we are "aware of being aware". This allows us to reflect upon ourselves and our feelings and, in an ideal world, make insightful decisions and judgements. This state, dubbed secondary consciousness, is thought to be unique to humans.
