fairly straightforward really - The things that are true and in which I have faith all have objective facts and Theories to back themup.Quote
I confess I do not understand how you sort things into this "real world", "fantasy world", and everything else
Love is simply a word - and all languages appear to have a word - to label a physical, chemical set of reactions which strongly promote bonding etc which of course are very strong survival traits.Quote
(for me, I simply have awarenesses of varying duration, source, and recurrence; so your way looks overly complicated to me). I'll give you some things that I consider part of the "real world" and you tell me which category they fall.
1. Is my love for my wife part of your "real world", "fantasy world", or something else to be declared now, deus ex machina?
No-one can see, i.e. observe objectively, an emotion. It can be and obviously is something that canQuote
From my perspective, all you can see are my actions, NOT my love. I would think that should qualify as a fantasy for you.
be detected by electronic signals from the brain. The effects, the behaviours which result from the natural occasion of the chemical reactions involved can be observed andinterpreted a something labelled love.
Presumably because the feelings have been reinforced by the beneficial effects produced.Quote
2. What is your status on my relationship with my wife? Why should there be any particular reason we continue living together or even speaking, other than randomness or "fantasy"? Is the only reason we keep running into each other is we happen to share a "fantasy world" that we somehow mistakenly have the "real world" reflect?
3. How about the internal cringe that happens whenever I hear Anita Ward sing Ring My Bell? How do you account for what people like or not in your "real world"?
Music or pleasant musical sounds and rhythm are clearly strong survival traits and as far as I know aare probably a genetic trait which shows no sign at all of becoming extinct.
And what source is that?Quote
From my perspective, your "real world" and "fantasy world" dichotomy is false in many ways. I see both as simply different types of manifestations of the same underlying Source.
I think I perhaps understand a little better what our amazing brains are capable of imagining and do not confuse the totallyi imagined with objective reality.Quote
Your perspective makes no sense to me, so I'm asking you to explain.
whether you now understand better or not makes no difference to whether things and thoughts are about fact or fiction or remain as don't knows!Quote
Pretty please explain so I can understand you?
