10 Ways to Avoid Brainwashing

10 Ways to Avoid Brainwashing If we don’t own our minds, we’re like pawns in a game where we’re not the player. We’re being played.

If we want to ensure that we’re living for ourselves and not serving ...

Nonlocal Consciousness

  Nonlocal Consciousness     Source Many regard consciousness as the final frontier of science.

Is Your God a Devil?

The Ultimate Deception

Consciousness and Experience

  Consciousness and Experience     Source Humans are alleged to have consciousness. I say “alleged” not because I doubt the assertion but because the term “consciousness” is, in my opinion, terribly misused. It has many meanings, and people employing the term don’t usually make clear what meaning they are using; instead they simply assume that others kn...
