The Time Machine of Consciousness. Past Present Future Exist

#1  Postby Alexander1304 » Oct 24, 2015 4:41 pm

Hi folks,
Here is another link from Rhawn Joseph:

http://cosmology.com/ConsciousTime111.html

Please,read an let me know what you think.
I argues that Dreams,PreCognitive dreams,Retrocausation are all obvious manifestations of Many Worlds.
Then he provides examples of precognitive/backward dreams,and argues that it is work of time machine of consciousness.
Please,have a read.Enjoy
I posted it on general debunking but I don't know,maybe I had to put it in sciences

I think you've got a typo on the name, isn't it Yawn Joseph? I couldn't get past this profoundness:
In quantum mechanics, where reality and the quantum continuum are a unity, time is also a unity such that the future present past are a continuum which are linked and the same could be said of consciousness which exists in the future and in the present and past.

Clearly, one can't deny that priorities are extremely important. First things first, but not necessarily in that order.

And I can't get past his conclusion:

We have been here before, we will be here again, we will always be, and this is because time and consciousness are a quantum continuum and the distinctions between past present and future are illusions.

There is no past, present and future, just differing quantatative variations in and of elementary particles, forces & spacetime

Well of course you can't get past it, it's already in your past and hasn't happened yet. :dance:

I don't understand why so many people insist on treating consciousness as anything more than a phenotype. An evolved trait that promotes survival until successful reproduction. Sure we use our consciousness/mind for many other things now that seem to have nothing to do with survival on the savanhas of Africa and even use it to avoid reproduction, but our fingers didn't evolve to play the piano or our feet to ice skate either.

Please,read an let me know what you think.


Among other things, I think the author confuses the PERCEPTION of the passage of time, with the ACTUAL passage of time.


That's enough to discount the entire thing as essentially fanciful, and not scientific in any sense.

What do You guys think about his unusual backward dream, and that he contemplates if he dreamed about his life 2000 ago,or it was contact with another world during this dream? And unusual dreams he provided as examples?

The perception of time from a first person experience is entirely unreliable from a scientific perspective and only objective definitions are valid. And there are three : the passing of an event / the distance between events [ an event is defined as a point in spacetime ] / the passing of a thought. However some physicists think that time does not exist and that each event in spacetime is entirely separate from every other event in spacetime. Instead of being seamlessly connected to each other

Yep. With an unhealthy dose of woo thrown in for good measure

Unusual dreams aren't exactly unusual.
Consciousness is make believe. Just think about it.
