Freud called it the ego (or superego, I forget - I dont like Freud) Babies don't seem to have this for the first year of their lives.

Babies are born with a blank slate. An "empty" brain. But imediately start expressing their
emotions.

So doesn't this make us emotional beings first, and think'in beings second?

There is no scientific evidence that would agree with your statement

Babies are born with their genetic parentage. Everyone is different.

Well you certainly couldn't tell them a joke tO make them laugh.

But after rethinking my initial statement, I realize the brain isn't entirely blank.
Like your point about genetic parentage. What controls the operation of a baby's
bodily functions. Like; how does the Spleen know what to do compared to a Gallblader.
How do the Lungs know what to do upon the baby's first breath.
Each individual organ must have predescribed instructions in their individual DNA?
But the orchestration of all the body's organs must be controlled by something. The Brain?

Also seems like the genetic parentage would be wrapped up in DNA?

Nice vid, Mike. I've always found Peter Brown to be direct and honest and virtually dogma- and theory free. No baggage. He gets it. The end of that vid where he talks about God and consciousness as "nothing" is especially strong.

Aaaaaah, circles


Later that day Frank and I drove to one of the empty parking lots in his VW, to do doughnuts. He would step on the gas, and when he thought we were going fast enough, or were approaching one of the snowbanks, he would shout "Now". I would crank on the e-brake while he spun the steering wheel as fast as he could. We went round and round, and laughed and laughed. Then we did it again and again.........

The circle of life ....

With out life there would be no data.

Not that sterile data can complete life.

Life itself is complete.

When the soul leaves the body there's only sterile data left.

Life come comes from life and without life.

There would be no complete circle .......

Ur right, Life is a circle. The Ying-Yang thing, The positive-negative thing.
The spiritual-material thang.

But, the Soul is lineal__.

No one is sane.
On that premises, I shall not take anything seriously, especially when it is presented in the most serious tones. You are all bat crazy full of your own illusions, sense of righteousness. I am also on the same boat full of my own fantasies that I call my personal reality. So in the manner of a mad hatter, the joker, the clown...

This whole thread is hilarious. We live too quick, we always die before we are fully done creating enough chaos to be a really good joke.
