We are communicating here with...
    #3031216 - 08/21/04 03:28 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

A. Machines built by well-educated and disciplined people who have some basic understanding of physics.

B. Machines built by people too lazy or uninterested to find out how things work.

C. Telepathy, Tarot cards, crystal balls and other magical means.

The sign on this door says, SPIRITUALITY, PHILOSOPHY and RELIGION. I do beleive that telepathy, tarot cards, crystal balls and other magical means belong in this room.

You must've been looking for the machine shop. It's 2 doors down and on your right.

So you agree to discuss the paranormal we MUST use the normal. No irony there...

that depends on what you mean by "we" and "here"

hey Swami, i think there are some four year olds playing outside right now. if you don't already feel like a big enough man, why don't you push them around and steal their candy or something....

we the shroomerites are communicating here on the shroomery with our minds to conjur up the data to be expressed, our computers/networks to transmit this data, and our bodies as a synapse between said minds and computers/networks.

I'm not sure what you're asking if this isn't a "good" answer.. oh yeah wait its a terrible answer because I didn't chose one of your options.

"Is it A, B, C, or D?"

"Its Orange!"

Are you saying that some posters here have the mentality of four-year-olds? That is somewhat insulting.

You are unable to follow our simple communal rules and yet you make comments on maturity?

well given the fact that you tend to insult most people with your posts i wouldn't even be talking (believe me your egotist quality shines through like the sun). i just have the balls to call you out on it...

Spatulas aside,i will try to give an answer to swamis question.Afterr all i think that is the first time i reply to a swami thread.

So ,you question "We are communicating here with...?" can also be expressed as "What are the technical means that allow communication with this online community".Inform me is this is not so.

I will HAVE to choose A. Certainly what allows me to communicate with you write know is my PC and my modulator/demodulator.I am pretty sure that if i open them up (please dont make me to do so) i will find capacitors,resistances etc and other marvels of technology that take advantage and apply some physiscs rules to allow this kind of communication we have right now.The people who built it or for the sake of a better argument the inventors,surely have what could be considered a good knowledge of what we call physics.After all the proof of the pudding is in the eating....

It objectively works since we are all in the forum and communicating,doesnt it?

"Spatulas aside.."

indeed, no need to insult at all. it doesn't really help.

yes we are using machines that work on the basis of fundamental physics!!!

yes science works.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

Of course it is, but some here go so far afield as to deny the practical application of topics discussed. If esoteric knowledge cannot be applied or is applied with no results then it has little use.

It objectively works since we are all in the forum and communicating,doesnt it?
The science slammers and telepathic promoters seem to forget this fact.

most people who assemble computers dont really know "how they work" but more just as long as the red wire touches the blue thingy and that connects to the brown gizmogadget everything should work and they get paid, and they are happy with the money they got, the company is happy cuz they have a computer to sell, the the purchaser at home is happy because now he can go to the shroomery or other websites.

but then again there is also the networking aspect of things, which is a giant machine as well or actually many machines working together, now the people who juxtapostion these machines may not know how the indivudual machine works (as in how the science behind it makes things go boink and beep when they are suppose to) but they do understand how to make the machines to interact and allow people to communicate over distances otherwise uncommunicatable.

of course in the very begging of electronic communications it may have seemed very "magical" for the idea of sending your voice over a little piece of copper (it is copper right?) was pretty far out to some people who did not understand the science of it.

so can i choose all the above?

I'm gonna go with what Strumpling said.
Computers are just the means by which we are communicating here. We use our thoughts, which is where all of this originates from, and I have yet to see basic physics explain where those come from.

The practical application of this is that there is no one single thing that is responsible for our communication here. If it was just computers, then it would be pretty quiet, or a bunch of automated swamis debunking each other continually. In practical reality.. it is a vast range of things, none of which, I think, would even exist in the first place without the integrity of the human soul. We are communicating here first and foremost with our thoughts. The most magical thing on Earth.

Love,
My beautiful, wonderful brain. That was not created by science.
