    College Football '08

    Ouch! Well, you'll get your wish....next year though, and the year after. tOSU is playing USC the next 2 years, like we played Texas last year and the year before. (and would have won them both had Vince Young not gone all Vince Young on us on the fourth quarter.) Washington was scheduled...

    College Football '08

    Not exactly the way I envisioned it happening, but I have seen almost every game and the Sooners are the real deal. Despite their 2 losses. With this crazy season it just might happen. Buckeyes are in, let the other guys fight it out. Whoever it is we play, you know tOSU will be bashed for...

    College Football '08

    Will the real #1 please stand up? I was envisioning a repeat of the LSU-Florida game when LSU got the ball back with around 1:30 left in the 4th quarter. Great game. Thank you Kentucky! The Cal game wasn't televised so I was watching the scores scroll by, it was fourth and 17 on the cal...

    College Football '08

    Geez, no posts in a month?? Anyway, just to give it a little bump..... On a Buckeye note, I'm pretty darn happy after the happenings last week that we've moved up to number four in the polls. Hopefully, with Florida beating LSU today and Cal-v-USC later this season, our beloved Buckeyes...

    Is time just an illusion?

    Hello DD, Actually, I have been following this thread since the beginning and have read most of your posts on this forum. I've hesitated to comment to this because, well, you were a little mean to people in the beginning (and used waaay too many emoticons:rofl: ) Anyway, I'm here just trying...

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    hello Order and Moonbear, I just want to jump in here quickly before I head off to work (sorry I haven't replied earlier) but I'm actually happy to see Moonbear's contributing to this thread. I actually feel partly responsible for taking this thread in the animal consciousness direction, but...

    The 2003 fiesta bowl was pretty memorable in it's own right, but I'm a little biased. What about the choke by Minnesota too? Embarrasing!! At least no Big 10 team lost to an SEC team. I'll give PSU some credit.....they played good defense. I can't believe I fell asleep at the end of the...

    Medical Science Of Hallucinating

    Nuklear, The following links are to some research on auditory verbal hallucinations in schitzophrenic subjects that I came across looking into another thread in this forum. What I do know is that our neurons have a base rate of firing and information is coded and transmitted by the rate of...

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    Well my own thoughts on this are that you can study animal behavior but any attempt to parrellel that to a human is just speculation. Only humans have the ability to report on their conscious experience. There are quite a few people who attemt to make the connection, but that delves into...

    Official College Football Bragging Rights Thread V2.0

    Man, there were some good games yesterday. I would have loved to see OSU play USC. Yet, it's for the best though that they lost. They got a taste of what would have happened to them if they played us. We would have at least scored more than 13 points. As for a rematch -v- Mich, I'd...

    Medical Ummm, Do I Have Some Sort Of Condition?

    If it really worries you, go see a doctor. I use to have some weird things like that when I was much younger (kindergardenish) I attributed it to lack of sleep. Do you seem detached like you're watching life as a movie? That'll be $5000.

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    Well, the example Jaynes used was the work of Karl Marbe, who had his colleages choose which of two objects were heavier by looking at them. They were able to make their decision without any "mental" images at all. (as reported by them). You can try it for yourself and come to your own...

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    This is what is referred to as "imageless thought" and is the point Jaynes was making that consciousness is not necessary for thinking/reasoning. It's a controversial subject but has lead to advances in areas such as artificial intelligence. If you follow Jaynes rationalle and use his...

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    Selfadjoint, My confusion about different make-up of modern and bicameral brains was due to the end of page 8 in the lecture I posted. He referenced "it coincides with the astonishing development of the particular areas of the brain involved in language". I see now he was pointing out...

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    I see what you are saying, and I only asked you because I saw in another thread that you had read the book previously. Perhaps I am inferring that Jaynes believes there evolved a different make-up of the brain. I really don't see how anyone could say that bicameral and modern brains could be...

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    I was just trying to cover my butt there because I didn't want to get his thread locked if this book wasn't "mainstream" enough for PF. I don't know if that was your personal endorsement of Jaynes' idea, Self, but I personally found it rather interesting. I don't really understand whether or...

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    Order, I'm not sure if your question had been answered adequately yet, but I saw this book and it immediately jogged my memory, and I thought about your post. I think it is relevant to your topic insofar as it deals with what factors contributed to its formation. The book was by a...

    Ohio State vs Michigan

    What Troy Smith are you talking about?:confused: Some of his best games were against Mich. (and hasn't lost to them yet) He is the ultimate big game player. Don't think he's going to suddenly cower in fear now. BELIEVE that! Just watch this highlight reel:

    Ohio State vs Michigan

    They should just bring the heisman trophy to the game and give it to Troy Smith after he throws another 5 TD passes (and runs for another). Might as well bring the BCS trophy too. This is our year baby!!!!!!

    What happens after death?

    PIT2, If I go to a hospital for major surgery, I would recieve anesthesia, and lose conciousness. If I took a right hook to the head, I might lose conciousness. If I took LSD, or some other chemical, my conscious experience would be severly altered. I could have an OBE by lucid dreaming...

    What happens after death?

    It's more likely than not, for sure. I've read practically every one of your arguments on this forum so I know your doubts on the issue. Has it been completely explained yet? NO. But a living brain seems to me to factor in pretty heavily, don't you think?

    Medical How does the EGO form?

    Sorry, I hadn't seen this yet. Look up Eric Erikson's theory of psychosocial development. It basically states that someone's "identity" is the result of an interaction between biological needs and social forces. (nature vs nurture). However, a quick answer to what I believe to be the...

    What happens after death?

    I agree with your last sentence to a point. That point is it trying to extend what happens in the moments leading up to death, shouldn't be used as an indication of what happens afterwards Although I don't get your rock analogy, the problem I see with your analysis is there is no way to...

    What happens after death?

    Hello PIT2, Nice talking with you again, hope you are well. You are already aware of my attitude towards the Near death experience. There's a reason why I highlighted near; they weren't actually dead! Here's a good definition of death for you: The irreversible cessation of brain...

    Can liretature ''tell the truth'' better than other areas of knowledge?

    I would advise you to do a search (keyword "knowledge") of the PF philosophy section for a lot of good discussions on the meaning of knowledge. It gets discussed quite often. It also might be better for us to help you if you provide us some of your initial research on the subject. But...
