If you are impatient with me now, please go to
the last point: 4)c).

I would have discussed your theory but
first must refute your idea that i ruined this thread by characterizing your description as phlogiston.

1) From your pattern of wisecrack short replies to my posts since November, I had come to understand you are contemptuous of my ability and my posted ideas. Therefore, I would not expect you to be upset if I merely made a little twerpy remark after one of the deepest essays you ever posted here.

2) Recently, out of nowhere it seemed, you advised me to read the Tibetan Book of the Dead, which prepares a person to leave this world. This could be taken as a veiled threat by you, or a friendly discussion. I responded as if it were the latter, and as usual, you let it sit there.

3) Phlogiston is a term which apparently bothers you. But I don't see how it can ruin the thread. When you accuse me of ruining the thread with my little remark, are you kidding again, or are you willfully violating the commandment against bearing false witness? If so, you might be kidding about everything...your religion, your location, your career, your name, your science, your beliffs, your biography.

4) "Consciousness" can be defined in very different ways.
a) Indirectly, Harv essentially defined it as
the stuff of motor control.
b) You seem to be defining consciousness as "brain functions" that can visualize and compute...
c) Metacognition is sometimes called "higher consciousness."
