    Well that's not an argument against reality coming from consciousness, it's an argument against reality not being entirely generated by your own personal consciousness. In positions like idealism, the collective world has a consciousness behind it (like your body has a consciousness behind it)...

    I don't think this is necessarily true. You can have intelligent design without a blueprint-type designer. What's wrong with the idea that consciousness helps shape our evolution? That our conscious minds help select things that we want? It's a hybrid approach. Very Tom Campbell I think.

    Hey Shane, I'd love to get your follow up on my response to your question. I know there's a lot going on, but I'm keen to learn what I can from you. :) Here's the reply post: Forum-Post-Link

    Thanks David, I think you've mentioned this to me before. I hadn't forgotten. Fascinating stuff.

    Ok, that was a little weird, having made that point about evolution being steered, I went downstairs to a video I'd left paused as it was time for bed, unpaused it then had Ken Wilber of integral theory fame say what I'd just said in a different way! Reference to Ken Wilber Video at appropriate...

    I think it's important to remember random chance is another one of those faith based belief systems just like believing consciousness is emergent, though I'm so glad you mentioned it, because I think it might be time to start putting together some articles of faith for Physicalism ;) Hehehe The...

    It was rather lovely to read Eric, thank you. When I had my first OBE, I didn't want to call it an OBE. I called it a non-body experience. I had this feeling that my body may have been more like a dream or an experience than me literally being a thing that is within it. I am very sympathetic to...

    How do involuntary movements support the idea that consciousness comes from unconscious matter? Could you elaborate please? I agree that will is a thing, but if your consciousness or mind can affect change in the universe, we have a really serious problem in conventional thinking, because now...

    Well Shane, if you can help refine the way that I think of this I'd be most grateful, but I don't believe there is any evidence whatsoever that we come from unconscious things. Please though, I'm open to being talked through what you know. To be specific about what definition of consciousness...

    Social engineering or just the place we find ourselves, what I will agree on is that we are in the midst of a crypto-religion. The foundational faith of this crypto-religion is that phenomenal consciousness just sort of pops into existence from unconscious physical processes. Ask someone for the...

    Still listening to your latest show, but I just had to pop on here to say I am so glad you are doing what you are doing Alex. Thank you.

    No, it just embeds an iframe (a portal) into YouTube's platform. The advantage it offers is that you can watch in page.

    I watched it and the response was.... Yeah he's great. :) Just so thoughtful about it, so... reasonable and humble. I have a lot of respect for that.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson - Surprising Video

    So there I am, collecting clips, watching videos as part of my process of creating the next video on my channel, which is under the working title of "Is Atheism Coherent?". Then I saw a video about Neil deGrasse Tyson that actually surprised me and challenged me a bit. I know Neil has said some...

    Request For Help - Arguments To Eliminate Materialism

    Yes I completely accept what you've said regarding it not being God per se, but supernaturalities, though, I think we need to work on what we call that. Interesting stuff. I'd be very happy to see if I can help you out with that, feel free to drop me a message on here or something to make sure...

    Request For Help - Arguments To Eliminate Materialism

    I would love to help you work on it and then we could get the next versions of it and put those in front of future guests to Consciousness Matters. Would you like to talk about it on the show yourself? If live is difficult would you like to do a video on your phone? Just some ideas! BTW, I'm...

    Request For Help - Arguments To Eliminate Materialism

    I've been doing a lot of thinking about what you're suggesting there, I'm going to try and fashion my own approach of deeply listening and steel manning their positions, making it clear to an audience that they do have positions and then exploring theirs and showing how they differ from my own...
