    Some of the things in that video are incorrect. Also, as for the reason spiritual knowledge has been kept from the masses (regarding The Vatican), it is so a few "elite" have all the power and control, while the rest of us are left stupid and ignorant. This is one of the many reasons I strongly dislike Christianity/Catholicism.

    As far as I know, this isn't possible and doesn't happen. The idea behind it (complete and utter enlightenment) is cool, however.

    This is a deep question; I don't know.

    That's a very difficult question to answer. I am not sure even animals qualify as observers. I think it is the soul which is defining each of our individual universes, which happen to overlap. Hardy's Paradox is the axiom that we cannot make inferences about past events that haven't been directly observed while also acknowledging that the very act of observation affects the reality we seek to unearth. So whatever else has happened in the universe, or on this planet, or in your house, which you are not actually observing, cannot be inferred. If you had a fish and it died while you were working on the computer, you cannot infer that it died until you actually see that it is dead. Even though you can then see that it had died some time ago, it is not true that it actually did die some time ago, that reality resolved only after you saw it.

    But an atom is not a consciousness, while an animal may be. Possibly the line is drawn at the soul which exists in an upper dimension, quantum entangled to our physical bodies.

    What is really interesting about this paradox is that even blind people can collapse a wave function when the observation is linked to an audible signal.

    No. The term "accidents" was used by the Medieval Scholastic Philosophers for the (presumably "real" and independent) attributes of substances.

    When speaking scientifically, we would most likely refer to the "properties" of material things. When speaking philosophically, the term attributes is probably preferable. Practically speaking, though, they are synonyms as far as I know.

    Excellent question. Leibniz divided the world into many different categories of non-physical substances. As different substances, these do not interact directly, but operate in parallel according to a "pre-established harmony".

    Leibniz was loathe to ascribe a mechanical operating principle to non-physical processes (e.g., thinking). He felt that different kinds of non-physical characteristics arose, without mechanism, directly from substances that possessed them as native attributes... thinking substances of sorts.

    Leibniz was a Christian. I don't know anything about the particulars of his theology.

    I think every generation has said that. Is the Internet worse than the Black Plague or World War I? Here's always been bad out there. I don't see this as a sign myself.

    Well I just recently learned about the Preterists, so I'm not exactly sure. How about you?

    If you are interested in what 'matters' in your words then context is essential.

    The term Pixel, general speaking in TC's workshops are merely metaphors to communicate a larger point. That larger point concerns itself with the 'Big Picture'. That's why his self-published work is titled as a TOE, Theory of Everything.

    In part, if everything physical can be derived from a theory than the theory is consistent in science-speak and considered a success. As of this date, TC's TOE meets that criteria. Physical matter physics can be derived from the TOE and so far that's the classification of the essence of your query.

    I don't see much to discuss given your misunderstandings or what you are arguing about.

    Your phrasing is throwing me off ...

    Do you mean "At the level we exist when you and I are typing on our computers, is information discrete or continuous ?'

    Yeah, only one example. Disingenuous, not impressive. But it'll work with most.

    Seems reasonable. Are you thinking about building something?

    I have developed a methodology, architecture, and tools for building "adaptive" applications: applications that modify and tune themselves to improve performance.

    There are several ways this can be done. Do you have a particular application in mind? I would be glad to make some suggestions. The more specific you can be, the more specific I can be.
