Subject: Do you consider consciousness –
- to be analogous to a monotheistic god concept?

- to be an orientation tool?

- to be active and/or passive?

- to be evoked and/or eliminated?

- to consist of strong and weak forces?

- to function like electromagnetism?

- to be time/space limited?

- to be a psychosomatic idiosyncrasy of homo?

I consider (my) (self)consciousness to be 'me' so...

I'm not synonymous with god.

I'm not a tool.

I'm mostly active.

I can't be evoked (as I'm right here) and only death will eliminate me.

I'm rooted in, extend out of, material processes, so -- yeah -- I got them weak and strong forces workin' in me.

I function as the result of very particular and peculiar electrical/chemical processes..if EM is in there, then: yes.

I'm finite,, bound up in space, time, coffee, and cigarettes.

I'm idiosyncratic, not imaginary.

The link doesn't work for me...either the link is bad or my machine incompatible with the link.

Mebbe you can summarize the content?

Yeah, I did that the first time. As I say, it doesn't work on my machine.
