Due Nota Benes
- Uno – Actually, I was looking for references to the “Foundations of American Political Conservatism” in order to make a post about what I believe will be an historic 2012 election. At the same time, I’m preparing a lecture on the juxtapositions between science and religion. Are they compatible, but different, belief systems? Are they diametric opposites to explain everything? Exciting discussions will evolve.
Along the way, I got a bit of peanut butter in my jelly jar, as it were. And found a video about the demonstrators at historic Hyde Park, London. Which I’ll write on next week.
- Due – At first, the report came to a sticky mess; from which I’m desperately to extricate myself. Cerebrally, as it were. Intellectually. Gastronomically too!! I am drawn to sweets… … …innocuous confections with little nutritional value. Where’s Joy [Of Cooking] when you need her? Should I be switching sieves? Am I re-straining myself? Thank God for Cinna-bon-mots!!

Anyway, for a start, watch the following 20 minute movie, which lays out a path from biological science, through neuro-scientific research, to religious experiences, to consciousness. Is this The Ultimate Truth?
View This Video Link; Here….
In this professionally video taped presentation, Peter Russell starts with the hard problem of consciousness – why do we have an inner world of experience? Diving into his eye, and into his mind, we enter a surreal world in which we discover that all we ever know directly are the forms and images arising in the mind. But, he asks, where does consciousness itself come from? Has conventional science got it wrong? Peter explores the mystery of consciousness from two perspectives – the mystery of its origins from matter, and the mystery of the “I”, the self. Shot in high-quality digital, this production utilizes animation and innovative post-production to create an exciting experience that takes the viewer to the heart of the emerging new paradigm on human consciousness.
Other discussions will follow to flesh out the report. Keep tuned in. Good advice in all situations. Being “tuned in”, I mean!
