Can anyone help me decipher what this "sign" says? I found this "Tomb" in the cemetary... It may have an important message for me!
hi thread followers
im finding "hints"
before i forget; met a interesting, nice guy on both Sat and Sun on back-trails forest preserve [bumped into him several times]
he was Greek; had an accent; name was Arcadia
i asked him what his name meant; he said, " It's an island in Greece; it also means "Eden"."
he told me for every turn of our head we receive about 3 billion stimuli; much of which we do not
he wanted me to look into a book entitled "The Social Animal"
; David Brooks
he said there were about "...50 pages that describe how the brain
[im pretty sure he said brain
and not mind
what caught my eye on the Wiki page [at the bottom] was:Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain
[link to en.wikipedia.org
in particular:"'Damasio argues in his well-known book that it is wrong to think that only minds think."
"The body and our emotions have a key role in the way we think and in rational decision-making'."
"Since, in his words, 'the body...contributes a content that is part and parcel of the workings of the normal mind', it follows that 'the mind is embodied, in the full sense of the term, not just embrained'.
"Damasio's theory stresses 'the crucial role of feeling in navigating the endless stream of life's personal decisions....The intuitive signals that guide us in these moments come in the form of limbic-driven surges from the viscera that Damasio calls "somatic markers" - literally, gut feelings'."
"Listening to your gut reactions, 'the somatic marker...may lead you to reject, immediately, the negative course of action and thus...allows you to choose from among fewer alternatives '."
this... the above: exactly describes how i have lived my life; fuck the corrupt system
you wouldn't believe it if i told you that as an obligatory prerequsite to achieving a tenured academic appointment that you have to "sell-your-soul".there is no such thing as Autonomy
[link to en.wikipedia.org
Quote:"Autonomy (Ancient Greek:; nomos, "law", hence when combined understood to mean "one who gives oneself their own law") is a concept found in moral, political, and bioethical philosophy."
"Within these contexts, it is the capacity of a rational individual to make an informed, un-coerced decision."
"In moral and political philosophy, autonomy is often used as the basis for determining moral responsibility for one's actions."
"One of the best known philosophical theories of autonomy was developed by Kant." [note: God agrees with Kant]
"In medicine, respect for the autonomy of patients is an important goal of deontology, though it can conflict with a competing ethical principle, namely beneficence."
"Autonomy is also used to refer to the self-government of the people."
