The production model v.s the Receiver/filter/reducing valve theory

It is often said by Materialists that the dramatic alterations of the brain on the mind/consciousness demonstrates that the brain somehow produces Consciousness. However a simple production model doesn't work as the brain is very complex and you won't here any dispute about that from Materialist scientist's. So we liken it to a complex production model as the brain is like a super computer that hasn't been created yet. It is said that this model can explain the effects the brain has on the mind but the receiver analogy cannot as the brain is not a tv set. However, let's be clear here subbstance dualists are not saying the brain is a simple tv set but instead a complex tv set so the effects are very much amped up. I should point out the analogy that the brain is a tv set is speaking loosely as I have mentioned a radio as well before.

I got a lot on my mind lately!

I am not feeling so good!. I just have a lot on my mind. I am sure many people do its a rough time. Just that storm for this week on my mind. As you have heard suppose to be very bad with lots and lots of rain but more than anything it's the wind. If things got real bad where would people go?. It's not like there are any real shelters in my small town. Of course, the pandemic makes me wonder if it's really ever going to end. Just recently found out about the passing of Jean she was a good friend of my late father. She always asked about me and wondered how I was doing. I miss her a lot. A lot of crazy stuff happening lately too like the bad flooding in British Columbia. I know it seems like I am ranting but I am really just trying to vent my thoughts. I have been listening to a lot of Christmas music lately trying to keep in a positive mindset.

The Brain as a filter, receiver/reducing value for Mind/Consciousness has strong support

Materialist's often claim that if Consciousness/Mind were separate from the brain we wouldn't have the kind of correlations we see if brain damaged patients. They often see the brain as a computer even though the brain is far more complex than a regular computer is. No dualist is saying that the brain is a simple filter, receiver or reducing value for the Mind and Consciousness. How the brain which is physical and Mind/Consciousness which is non-physical and how they interact with eachother is called the Interaction problem. If we can find a brain area that the Brain, Mind/Consciousness can interact with eachother the frontal lobe is possibly the key area to look. Some interesting reading here as well about the anterior insular cortex a part of the brain and how it might act as a filter for certain conscious information.

Why Occam's Razor doesn't apply to the hard questions of life

Occam's Razor is a very useful tool in Science however the more I think about it I don't think it should apply to the hard tough questions of life such as do we have free will?, Did the Universe come by chance or did it come by something creating the universe be that a god or some advanced alien civilization. How did life begin? and so many more. Applying as little assumptions as possble is a good thing however when it comes to these hard questions that may not work. I was watching this youtube video last night and did find it interesting here we have a realist monist Donald Hoffman is theory says that we are in a interface. Like we are all wearing a virtual reality set on our heads. But once we take off that virtual reality head set just like we would if you took one off by playing a virtual reality game you would find out that you still exist but the person you played in the game the avatar would die. If the avatar was killed. He is saying that our physical body is like a avatar where our consciousness is apart of the deeper reality outside the user interface.

Dr. Mark Solms says the Cortex is not the seat of Consciousness in the Brain

He thinks instead that we neuroscientists should consider taking consciousness down a level from thoughts to emotions. While destroying just a tiny area of the recticular brain stem does bring about automatic coma. This still doesn't tell us anything about consciousness it tells though that we can brings the brain/body into that state of automatic coma and we go completely unconscious Consciousness on the other hand is subjective in nature and does have physicality to it as well. Picking emotions just one feature of Consciousness is not enough to enravel the mystery of how consciousness is somehow produced by the brain. Dr. Mark Solms is just another Materialist scientist who instead of saying Consciousness is seated in the Cortex of the Brain it is seated Reticular core of the brainstem.

Youtube Atheists

Many if not most go by the line that they once believed in religion. I for one don't endorse religion as I see religion has had it's own monopoly on ideas such as life after death making anyone who dares investigate rather or not there is one or not just someone with a religious agenda. That couldn't be farther from the truth. I for one have never followed any religion nor have I read any holy books. I used to think that once your dead that it's there is nothing lights out. Of course as you know I am convinced that the scientific evidence for an afterlife is very strong. I can name numerous youtubers who are Atheists some with their own shows. They often attack people who are faith based who believe in the bible and other such holy books. I just had my second dose of the covid-19 vaccine. My first dose was Pfizer and my second dose was Moderna. I encourage anyone who hasn't gotten their first dose or second dose to get it.
