    I've seen what I can only describe as a U.F.O.. It was a ball of light falling from the sky which then turned blue, banked, and accelerated over the horizon. The best I can describe it is it was as if the path of a bird of prey, hunting another flying bird, had been turned into a ball of light, and the speed of the hunter with it's prey in it's talons had been accelerated. Eagle One.

    I know it's not. Magic doesn't exist.

    Nope it wasn't an alien in the sky. But I've been writing a list of paranormal phenomenon. I have skipped half of what's in the list because I'm lazy. It's only half as impressive as it should be. But the stuff is spooky though. On it's own each one might be disproven. But collectively it is too bizzarre to believe. I dont post because noone would believe me.

    I have an atheist friend who tells me it is all chance. But she is closeminded. As a Sherlock Holmes I have examined her personality. She often dominates conversations and cuts me off before I get to the climax of the story, and occasionally derives incorrect conclusions about what I am saying. I have had many atheist friends. I studied their minds, I know how they operate. For instance, I was trying to have a philosophical discussion with her about consciousness and she could not grasp the meaning of consciousness and kept hammering me about DNA structures, she could not seem to "get" the core meaning of the conversation it was annoying. similar to having an annoying chat with one of those new-fangled chat bots.

    But basically, she said she could prove me wrong with this book about odds, which implies that we are kind of in an "unprobability drive" where unlikely things just happen. I asked her how to get a hold of the book and she said its no longer available, so I never got to read the book.

    Personally I believe our paltry brains are unfit to answer questions about the supernatural or consciousness. I believe human brains need to be twice as good in order to be worthy. The girl I mentioned's IQ is 160 and my iq is close to hers. But I feel my brain is simply not good enough to come to absolute conclusions of the supernatural, unless I do mind-enhancing drugs of revelations.

    I am agnostic not atheist. It's funny because, there used to be a christian genius person who believed in magic, and I got her to abandon her christian religion, and I turned her into a militant atheist, and she doesn't even acknowledge that I am the one who created her, truth is, if it wasn't for me she'd still be spouting her bible book nonsense, she treats me like nothing and is totally ungrateful, everyone is just ungrateful to me and doesn't acknowledge how much of a mastermind I am at things.

    Now I did meet one atheist who believed me. He said he knows paranormal is real because it happened to him. He had a dream which predicted the future 1 hour in advance. If you want to know more, you must say "please".

    Okay, what he (the atheist) told me, is this. He said to me that One night, he had a dream, his aunt died. Then he woke up, to a ringing on the phone. He picked up the phone and received a phone call, that his aunt was dead. Then he went to the funeral and it was true, she was dead.

    He told me that paranormal is probably real, but that doesn't mean the Bible is true. All of the world's religions may be false, red herrings, to keep us in ignorance.

    Belief is the first failure. Belief is an emotional feeling that you must obey something. What I think is, paranormal is real but what must be done? What we need to do is make the human brain twice as good as before, by giving it twice as many neurons and only then will we understand Ultimate Reality.

    The human brain is fine Gamelord. Two people can ride the same bicycle, or drive the same automobile, but CHOOSE to handle them differently. ☺

    The human brain is not fine, the human race is shambles, and we are not much closer to discovering the hard problems of consciousness than we were 2000 years ago.

    The problems of the human race are not caused by lack of understanding "the hard problems of consciousness". Most of them are probably caused by over-population - i.e. were victims of our own success.

    Do you have a larger event horizon than the traffic jams of tommorow?

    Find the hard problem of consciousness is an important matter. What do you want it to be found 200 years from now when you are long gone? What good will it be to you then?

    I don't think the traffic jams of tomorrow are significantly different from the traffic jams of yesterday - caused by overcrowding. Lack of attention may be a problem but not lack of understanding of consciousness.

    Human brain ~86,000 neurons
    Elephant brain ~250,000 neurons

    Why are you posting here, rather than talking to the nearest elephant to learn the secrets of Ultimate Reality?

    Overcrowding is not the pressing issue here.

    Elephants dont have the same brain structure as humans. If we could keep the same human brain structure, but double the neurons, humans would be exponentially smarter.

    You're confusing hardware with software. Making the hardware bigger/faster/shinier won't fix the screwed-up software. We're stuck with reptilian artefacts in our software and we can't just re-install.

    And what is exactly bad about these reptilian artifacts?

    If people would just upgrade the brain like I'm saying, then it might happen.
