We are a paranormal research community for those with a severe passion for the absurd, strange, and outlandish. We're about IDEAS and DIALOGUE, doing battle in the realm of logic and wit to get to whatever kernel of truth lies at the bottom of the fringe. We love discussing weird, crazy, and impossible things, but those unwilling to have their ideas challenged should turn back now.
Curious Cosmos is also home to Chronovisor, our custom Wayback Machine cataloging/discovery tool used in our internet archeology projects. Our goal is to revive those lost conversations and ideas for others to research and enjoy, as well as preserve and archive internet subculture of the early 2000s.
Yesterday i had a delivery of a HDR, its an older model around or near 2000-2004.
So i have got a step down inverter on the way to handle the 240v here.
As the plug on the unit is a US plug A, i now have to find an adapter to bridge the connection between the unit and the inverter.
I have an electrical store quite close so will pay a visit there, will let you guys know.
The Society for American Archaeology has weighed in on Graham Hancock's latest flapdoodly crapola with an entire issue of their journal dedicated to addressing the idiocy Hancock spewed out and then declined to defend.
Yes, he declined to defend any of it right there in his book! Sort of a "2% variance" kind of thing but even more blatant.
Here's the link: Journal - the SAA Archaeological Record.
The ontological hypothesis...
There is a strong correlation between the mind and the brain. The question is, does the brain produce thought or does the brain channel or receive basic thought impulses which are then constrained or limited by it in order to bring into focus the various communicable ideas analogously to how a lens can magnify light from the sun into a point.
Indeed it is possible that the mind is more than just the production of a material brain, that is to say, a mind would ultimately not be dependent on a brain.
If the mind is more than the production of a material brain, then the brain, while being correlated with the mind, is somehow independent of material objects such as brains.
Basically, the essence of thought would not require a material basis but the many forms of matter and energy would depend on a fundamentally mental substratum in order to exist.
A more complex brain such as the human brain has the capability to focus the non-material psychological impulses of the mental substratum into more refined forms of thought complexity.
Formless mind is unbounded and unlimited. Perhaps "before" the physical universe existed the formless reality of mind condensed into various forms. These forms then combined into configurations of creative complexity.
A fundamental law is the law of cause and effect. Formless mind would at first be free, then it would be divided into complex configurations of selfhood as it experienced complexity and creativity of the many forms. Eventually it returns back to the original formlessness with the greater experience of causality – a most foundational law.
If mind is the basis of reality then the totality of existence is a mind.
If the totality of existence is a mind then that mind exemplifies a definition for God who is the ultimate mind.
God, who is the totality of existence is THAT which nothing greater can be imagined or conceived.
THAT which exists in reality and in the imagination is greater or more substantial than that which exists in the imagination alone.
God can exist in the imagination.
It may be possible to imagine something greater than God.
But since God is the totality of existence it is impossible to imagine anything greater than God who is the ultimate mind and therefore the ultimate reality.
If mind is more than just a brain then God exists.
Giving tachyons more energy causes them to slow down. Just like it is theorized to be impossible for a regular matter particle to accelerate up to the speed of light it is also theorized to be impossible for a tachyon to slow down to the speed of light. Tachyons with zero energy are proposed to travel at infinite speed.
I imagine that c, the speed of light in vacuum forms a barrier or reflective plane between time and anti-time universes. The multiverse become analogous to an infinite hall of mirrors. Some scientists have theorized that tachyons may solve the dark matter and dark energy problems in physics...
