are many questions. What time is it? But in the common
spaces of the higher Cathedrals there are two big
questions. The one has to do with what is the universe.
The other is casually referred to as the Mind Body
Problem or ontology, The Ghost in the Machine, and much
easier to call it Being. The Ancients looked at the
universe, and like today they had many ideas, all of
them kind of summarized by The Cave. What we see are
shadows of the real cast by the sun upon the floor of
the cave, and like a guessing game we try to work out
what those shadows might be.
mechanical minded came to the conclusion that one solution
to better understanding was to develop tools that would
enable us to better grasp what it was that caused the
shadows. Call it science. Science put men on the moon, but
it doesn't yet know what the universe is and it has not yet
found a solution to the Mind Body Problem. My own view is
that these two big questions will be answered at the same
time. I say this because consciousness, or Being is a
property of the universe we can only ever experience. I
think your point to me might be "you sound like a total
nut." And my answer to your point is "Yes."
