[quote:Unit3:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUzMTQzMzZfQ0FFMjNCQg==] [quote:panoukos:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUzMDg0ODFfM0M3RUY1RQ==] [quote:Unit3:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyNzQxNjFfQTgyNUIwMzY=] I think acceptance is huge. When we execute a Genius, there is no way we can know all the variables that need to take place to make what we want to happen. And [b]probably[/b], if we did, we would never want to use one. [/quote] [quote:Unit3:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyNzQxNjFfQTgyNUIwMzY=] Maybe I can clarify what I am saying in the post above. [/quote] Unit3, please accept my apologies for making you feel misunderstood, especially when my intention was the exact opposite. I put the word "probably" from your quote in bold to depict that you had already decided that if you "knew all the variables that needed to take place to make what you want to happen", you wouldn't have made that [b]"particular" wish[/b]. Not the Genius in general. And for that, I tried to show (from my perspective of course) that thinking about the variables (whose number will make you decide to go for this or the other wish), or how you expect the genius to do its job, is exactly what we are not supposed to do. All we have to think of, is the "what" and "why". The "how" leave it to the genius. But we all must know how to ask "what" and "why" from our previous wishes. What is so special about the genius, that we seem to have a problem with it now (defining point B, that is)? (That's why I said "we don't know what to do about it"). Your remark is not only legitimate, is common to everyone of us (read Jesse's fear of not losing his precious). Since I failed to tell what i saw in what you wrote, I will leave it there and maybe come back from another path. I will try to amuse you though, with another old joke that sometimes reminds me of Chaol. [b]patient:[/b] Doctor, every time I drink tea, I have an ache in my right eye. [b]Doc:[/b] Next time, take out the teaspoon from the mug. [/quote] I'm so glad you are willing to keep communication between us. Thank you and of course, apologies accepted. I offer mine if I still don't quite catch on to your perspective. I certainly agree that all we need to deal with is the "what" and "why" of the Genius. I'm also saying the variables are impossible for us to determine. So, letting the Genius do its job is easy, at least for me, because I realize this. After all, we are probably talking about trillions of interactions. I completely understand Jesse's fear. I have lost my husband over my new perspective but I can't do anything about it. I won't go back and he won't come along. If he changes his mind, that's fine with me. But, I seriously doubt it will happen. He does not want to communicate any more. I've often said, life is messy! I like your joke but I don't get it in regards to Chaol, heh! Thanks again. It's nice getting to know you. [/quote]
I have been living in this world for some time now.
I came from a place also named Earth, much like this planet. There are a number of differences between my home and yours.
I thought it would be interesting to share a few things with you that are relatively common knowledge where I am from. My reasons for doing so will probably be more apparent in the future.
* Consciousness does not exist (but relationships do)
* Matter is gravity that has been structured
* We are not human (we are perspectives)
* When the totality of something cannot be grasped, it appears infinite.
* Space is not physical
* There is no "now" or "here", but relationships.
We use a kind of language like you use numbers here. Numbers, representations of abstract concepts, were 'invented' to work more easily with the world around us. Our language is no different.
If it were invented today it would probably be thought of as existing in parallel with science. A new kind of science.
This language also enables the shifting of perspective like a kind of mental technology. Some of you may find it quite interesting.
If anyone is interested in learning more please let me know.
