    Jason Jorjani, From Redefining Parapsychology to Image Cheapening |584|

    Sorry that I make you wait so long each time between my replies, Nelson. But only occasionally have I nowadays a chance to write a time- and effort-consuming response. I hope, however, that a quality of my response will somehow outweigh such a lengthy waiting time. So, let’s us look at detail...

    Well, my previous post obviously wasn't of interest to you or anyone else here, Nelson, but I will make one more reply here, just to end this exchange of ours. If you want, you may respond - but if you don't, such is your choice, no problem here. What I made clear - and what you apparently...

    Jason Jorjani. Does AI = PSI? |589|

    As for my own position on the disembodiment question... Mind / soul / spirit and body definitely are not "one" - their relationship is rather one of the part and the whole, the body being a "part" of the spiritual "whole". To be specific, it is just a certain relatively stable and persistent...

    Jason Jorjani. Does AI = PSI? |589|

    Concerning disembodied consciousness, there was a superb article on this exact topic by Julie Beischel in the Edge Science Issue 40 (pp. 6 - 10). Worth reading.

    At last I have some time to revive our discussion here, Nelson. Hopefully you (and others) would engage me once more! First and foremost, I do agree that there is much more to human connections than mere semiotic games on the most superficial - the mental - level. There is a stronger ingridient...

    And thank you for your polite responses, Nelson. Such restraint of painful passion - which my writings here probably already provoked in you - is rare and laudable. I am much more used to the hysterical froth-at-the-mouth vehemence coming from my opponents. Seems you hold yourself to the virtue...

    One more remark: it can be said that the Eternal Anarchy is the ultimate test for all paths and projects, as well as for all communities and organizations, humanity devised - the test of voluntariness: how will your worldview or your lifestyle fare if being deprived of compulsory power to make...

    And a small question for your personally, Nelson - but also for anyone else who is willing to think and answer... If Chinese are so voluntarily collecvist and obedient, why do they need all their digital control systems in the first place? Such systems are only installed if some deviation from...

    Jason Jorjani, From Redefining Parapsychology to Image Cheapening |584|

    After the previous post of mine, one can justifiably ask: what, then, is the difference between my own willed global project of the Eternal Anarchy and all other global projects, such as the currently dominant project of the planetary digital totalitarianism being enacted by powerful actors like...

    Jason Jorjani, From Redefining Parapsychology to Image Cheapening |584|

    Thank you for the reply, Nelson! And let me respond... What is most important about one's fundamental willful decision, is that it will always be in a certain degree of conflict with some other decisions made by some other people; so, to have one's will enacted in the currently shared reality...

    Hurm, did you see this thread started by me? https://skeptiko-forum.com/threads/where-is-everyone-from-rebooted.4858/ There were neither replies nor likes from you, so I thought - maybe you just missed it? And there were some things you would have liked there for sure, such as the connection...

    Having Jason Jorjani interviewed here on Skeptiko, was a true delight. He is one of the most daring and interesting thinkers / activists of our era, that's for sure. Sad he is not here on the thread himself, asking him some things directly would be superb. But what my comment is about, is the...

    How we survive? Well, something like that: In addition to all the clothes this guy mentions, I also sometimes put on a cotton jacket under the thick warm wool sweater, so to provide an additional layer for my upper body. I also tend to wear long-sleeve shirts, rather than a short-sleeve...

    Alive and well, for now. Hope I will be this way for long, despite the somewhat...well... hard and dangerous situation in home and abroad. Also hope this situation will be resolved in a mutually beneficial way. As for Skeptiko, its situation is not too pleasant as well - once it was lively here...

    6. SEEKING ENDURANCE IN THE WARM TIMES OF ENJOYMENT The ways Russians enjoy their nature in the Warm Period are numerous. I will describe the most popular ones. What is notable about all of them, however, is that they, despite being certainly highly joyous to the people practicing them, also...

    5. ENJOYING RUSSIAN NATURE: THE WARM PERIOD By the mid-April, the snow cover is usually largely gone (a few small patches of snow may still remain in shady places up to the end of the month), and the water bodies are free from ice. The temperatures are above zero around the clock, usually in...

    4. SEEKING ENJOYMENT IN THE COLD TIMES OF ENDURANCE But as for the opportunities of enjoyment, the Cold Period can also provide some of them, thus helping Russians to endure it somewhat easier; the means for the populace to fight back against darkness and cold in various ways. One of them is...

    3. ENDURING RUSSIAN NATURE: THE COLD PERIOD In Nizhny Novgorod, the Cold Period lasts for about the half of the year, roughly from the second half of October to the first half of April. It is the time when the Russian climate demonstrate all the ugliness it could spawn. The most unpleasant...
