Are you your brain and nothing else?
If so, mind-control programming is quite reasonable.
“The idea that somewhere in all the stacked-up universes, there might be a little corner that isn’t made out of matter or energy, but is truly independent of, and different from, sub-atomic particles… this idea confounds people, as if it might mean the end of all existence. It might mean a return to the old myths and fairy tales of the horrific priest-classes. It might mean everything science knows will vanish in a puff of smoke. But what if it doesn’t mean any of these things? What if it means that brutal power and domination could die out? What if it means there is an adventure waiting for all of us, beyond any and all pictures of conventional reality?” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Do atoms understand language?
Why ask such a question?
Because it goes to the heart of the slow-motion car crash that conventional physics has been experiencing for the past hundred years.
The question also puts philosophic materialism into a massive dither, from which it can’t hope to recover.
Conventional physics asserts that the universe is made entirely of particles. Atoms. Quarks, wavicles.
The universe includes the human brain.
Here is a sentence: “The Roman Empire collapsed, ushering in a Dark Age, a time of unprecedented chaos.”
Forget the truth or falsity of that sentence. It’s not at issue. What is at issue is the meaning of the sentence. You’re reading it now.
Do you understand it? Do you understand its meaning?
Of course you do. So do I.
