Stages of Faith

Abstract

It is explained how to become a saint, how to do mystical experiments, how to possibly see God, how to help theoretical research and how to live for ever in an easy way. And also perhaps to carry out Astral Projection. Free Details.

Physical Explanation of Consciousness (II)
Satisfactory use of existing results on OBE (Out of Body Experience). Further suggestions and an equation for OBE are given in Section 2. Optimal control theory, or Smith predictors may be used.
Our display of the OBE results look sensible. The neuromaniacs' display of the same results look...well - maniac. All the the results were as supplied by the neuromaniacs. Somehow the neuromaniacs do not seem to know that they are trying to find where people think that hand is. Comments are given on hopes of rehabilitation of the neuromaniacs. See URL below.

We are looking for some physical facts and results - the problems right now include orders of magnitude and others. Blanke talks feet size changes and investigators only talk centimetres size changes - and so much more, but answers are coming.

Obviously we are not yet able in the lab to get results like the animated gif. The problems are not easy but there is more information all the time. After all we ARE in the 21st century and even Stanford are building a particle accelerator in a chip ! When I first thought of Stanford they were running SLAC - times change.

Somebody said "Physics cannot explain consciousness". Well, I found that JME McTaggart's paradox helped. McTaggart himself seems to have missed the point, and we probably need both A and B series. Stephen Lehar's work is also worth looking at in that connection. Certainly we cannot switch from discussing individuals per se to general math.

So here are details again: A Professor Olaf Blanke video, prepared near the start of his investigations, clearly makes the point that people after his experiment believe themselves to be in a new position, as roughly directed by Blanke's early video (at about 1 minute 36 seconds). And this difference is much further than that which more recent experimenter's results may suggest which are usually about 30 mm only, often less. It is all right, most interesting, and will all work out. But we need better and more relevant measurements as I show in my brief note. I'm finding the mathematics a little difficult. There may be some bright ideas out there.

Our latest Work: We use many of the proprioceptive drift measurements of existing experimenters and note that these will create a graph (Fig 2 in article). Because they have measured 'drift' from a baseline (usually the subject's hand) and not from the measured position of the fake hand, their potentially interesting measurements did not show the change in proprioceptive drift easily. Later values, past what is sometimes referred to as the 'uncanny valley' show a great fall in the drift.

Thanks for taking time to reply. The idea is to find out other people's
ideas in a way to benefit science. I will place a further little post
giving a few more details.

Five important features of the MBI
(or Many Bubble Interpretation) given and used in our presentation http://youtu.be/lh0ZF0oDUv8

Firstly, our results are not simply anecdotal. Simply anecdotal results have so often been a problem to those wishing to explain and understand views on consciousness. Our presentation (ref 1) used the Yates Equation which derived from the results of Antel and Haans. and can be repeated by anybody.

Secondly, we have borne carefully in mind the statistical problems. I refer for example to the work of Alex Reinhart (2) which applies to the use of so many medical and fMRI results, where proper statistics are simply ignored or misused by so many authors. Our presentation uses the well known 'Zeeman catastrophe machine' to provide an example of how this can be done to establish a useful starting point, without tangling up the matter in a plethora of p values before doing anything at all. And it also points out how early devices like the Dreammachine have been the easy victim of such statistics as those of Reinhart. At best, much more work would have been required there for satsfactory results.

Thirdly, we have provided a way to resolve basic and serious problems in expensive space research work without going overboard at the start in expensive equipment and procedures.

Fourthly, we have pointed out how our methods expand the ideas the medicinal idea that ideas so far rather scientifically inchoate in detail but quite possibly important in such ideas as "meditation research" as referred to nowadays at Mountain View (3).

Fifthly, without inclusion of the qualities of the human mind as explicated in the JME MacTaggart A series, both the basic logic and the mathematics of the Theory of Mind are woefully incomplete. The MBI resolves this matter. Otherwise, to use any Theory of Mind is like trying to start a car with an empty gasoline tank.

All this is hardly surprising as at this time, there is no real understanding of the mind and brain in modern neuroscience.

For many years we have been doing research here and could do with a further airing. Here at IFS (Goa) we believe that the mind is not the brain, and that people do have free will . This can be shown now by physically measured results of a non anecdotal type. This can help to build an Alcubierre Warp Drive Star Ships and a lot more.
