Brain and Mind
The Fundamental Question of Philosophy?
How The Universe started to exist?
A Method of Logic/A Case Study
To elaborate and clarify the issue via An Example:
The Relation Between Brain and Mind!
Matter is what you can sense with your 5 senses directly.
Energy is what you can sense with your 5 senses directly or indirectly (tools).
Spirit is what you cannot sense with your 5 senses.
Materialism = The belief that Matters & Energies have created the Spirits.
Idealism = The belief that Spirits have made the Matters & Energies.
Agnosticism = The philosophy of Doubt. You do not know which has made which!
The Answers to The Question of Creation:
The Conservation Law of Matter & Energy in Physics:
Matters & Energies have never been created, will never be destroyed, yet they always change from one form to another. The total amount of matters & energies in the universe stays the same.
Theory of Evolution:
All elements in the universe has been evolved through millions of years of Evolution to the present form.
Theory of Relativity:
All elements are in relation to one another, everything is connected and nothing is absolute.
The universe has formed as of it's present form through millions of years of interaction between the inner and outer matter energies and matters transformation from one form to another which has resulted in existence of all animated and inanimated objects and The Evolution of all life forms, also through millions of years of Evolution Time table. The universe has never been created and will never be destroyed; therefore, there was never a creator.
The limited mind of the average human is always in need to believe in a creator and a creation.
God is a spirit. God has always been here, is here now, and will always be here in the future. He created everything in the universe.
We have no answer for the question of creation, we do not know what has happened!
According to Philosophical Terminology,
Brain: Is made of matter, you can sense it with your 5 senses, directly.
Brain Waves: are energy, you cannot sense it with your 5 senses directly, but you can sense it with scientific tools & measure it indirectly with machines, so still you can sense it with your 5 senses.
Mind: Is made of spirit, cause you cannot sense it with your 5 senses @ all.
That was the philosophical definition of all 3 above.
Now analyze this:
Mind cannot exist without brain:
There is no way that one can think without having a brain in the skull.
Brain can exist without the mind:
Imagine the situation that you are in deep sleep, without thinking or dreaming or having a nightmare, in this situation, your brain is in your skull yet you are not thinking @ all; therefore, the mind does not exist. You are in a steady state of sleepÂ with no thoughts.
Do not mix mind with brain-waves, brain-waves are there & can be measured.
So Brain can be without the mind
but Mind cannot be without the brain.
Matters can "be" without the spirits but spirits "cannot be" without the matters. Furthermore:
I can be without the God, but God cannot be without me =
God did not create me = I created God
This was a basic simple example analysis in logic & philosophy about mind, Brain, Human being & God. This was a basic lesson in Philosophy for beginners, very simple to understand for all.
This called reasoning & logic for beginners. And it was in simple language so all could understand.
Now picture this,
After death, when body transfers to energy, it has nothing to do with unexplained elements or spirits. Actually when we die, eventually the body mass transfers to other simpler masses & also much energy gives away, true that is, but the spirit element which is Mind, totally dies. Remember Mind cannot exist without the Brain!
So there is nothing supernatural about it. Now if you want to call the inner & outer Energies in the body & in the ecology, which control the whole universe: "Allah", Â "Lord", "Yahveh", "God" or whatever else, well you can call it anything you want, you can even call it Jane, or Joe, or Habib. But the fact is that they are not Spirits, they are Energies; therefore, technically cannot be called Allah or ....... (A spiritual form).
Human being is simply too selfish to accept that there is no life or reincarnation in "Afterlife"! You will simply rot, deteriorate, turn to maggots, eventually to soil and then grass. Next thing you know, the cow will eat you & release you as feces. So your afterlife will be in feces form! There will be no rivers of milk & honey, no 70 naked huries Female Angels and 2 pretty boys, and for sure no heavenly beautiful afterlife or possibly Hellish suffrage! You were not created in God's image! You cameÂ from primates, your brothers & sisters were monkeys and you will turn to Cow Feces in your Afterlife. On the Judgment Day or as the results of Reincarnation, youÂ will come back as Cow Feces, thats all. The sooner you face it, the sooner you willÂ wake up from your colorful bubbly balloon life & will become a "Logical Being". Enjoy your life cause this will be the only life as a conscious human being as yourself that you will ever get!
The nightmare of confusion, duality & Agnosticism starts when one for instance is a believer of Dialectical Materialism & Evolutionism, yet also due to Cultural or traditional back ground he falls into the abyss of Philosophical Idealism or Creationism (Spiritualism)!
Have you ever seen the high level scientists or Dr.s up to a scientific research, dealing with Evolution at work, yet as soon as they go to their private lives, you might find them @ the Church, then you can understand this contradiction! A good example would be the element of "Evolutionist Christian", a contradiction in contradiction indeed!
One cannot prove any of the religious rhetorics, scientifically and via logic. Either, one must believe in logics and proofs, or one must believe in religion, holy books, and the prophets who wrote them, by pure faith.
Dialectical Materialism, Materialism, and Evolution are one entity.
Philosophical Idealism, Spiritualism, and Creation are another entity.
You cannot mix and match the two above as you please or as you find it convenient!
State your position and make a stand:
Logic or Faith or Indecision?
Science or Religion or Doubt?
But please do not dodge through philosophical terminologies like a con artist!
a) Believing in Science and Logic, then you are an Evolutionist.
b) Believe in Religion and Super Natural, then you are a Creationist.
c) Believe in Doubts and indecisions, then you are an Agnostic.
Yet you cannot create an abomination of above philosophies as you see fit & as it gets convenient!
Mind is a terrible thing to be wasted on the story books made for adults, called the holy books.
So, what will it be?
More power to all,
