Re: UDA

I think it would mean that you disagree with digital mechanism. Not with step 3. Or you miss something with the functioning of computer and digital machine. Comp says that you can survive with a computer in place of your brain. That computer is duplicable, and when it is duplicated, in W and M to f...

Re: UDA

I think I'm just forced to abandon mechanism at step 3. If mechanism says that what I feel to be arises from a computation C, then I should feel to be each instance of C. Now, I'm not proposing that this would actually happen. Rather, I think it just uncovers a problem with mechanism itself. I guess...

Re: UDA

Hm. I guess I'm not communicating my point effectively. Oh well. I'll just conclude by saying that I'm uncertain how a particular sense of self becomes associated with a particular body, therefore I don't know what the probability would be. Maybe original Jack will not feel to be in either location....

Re: UDA

Hi all - been gone for a while. Glad to have found the reincarnation of Edot. So I'm just going to throw some of my thoughts out there after having re-read all of the UDA posts: If we were to subtract all of the factors non-essential for conscious awareness from a human mind, what structure, or dyn...

No, I don't think Jack (assuming mechanism) could be aware of the delay of reconstitution.

The salvia circus thing is to hook us so that we keep coming back for more. :) "He witnessed how the Salvia beings were making her out of Salvia stuff." This Swim has never seen salvia beings actively manipulating or composing anything in the physical world. Maybe it's because Swim always trips in ...

UDA step 1 - Would you accept that your daughter marries Jack? - What's the problem with Jack? - Jack just accepted a job, ... on the planet Mars. - Ah! Gosh. My daughter will not see her husband very often in that case. It takes already about two years to just go there! - Not really. Jack uses dig...

Re: The Tripping ManÂ’s Untitled Document -

Something weird happened to me just now as I was watching a Sherwin-Williams commercial like this one on TV. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWUrM0IZaDQ While watching it, Swim suddenly remembered a major visual from last night's 'Tripping Man' sessions. Swim remembered seeing in great and glorious ...

Session #11 In one experience SWIM was watching the rotation and sensed a being to his right. He looking hard, trying to catch a glimpse of the being. Finally, he saw him! He attempted to yell out to his sitters, but his words would not come out. Finally after several attempts, he managed to croak o...
