    Can you elaborate more on "old school"? What do you mean, exactly? Any pro tips?

    Did you tell others about your efforts to clean up when you first did, or did you succeed in private? Thanks

    Wait, so making new discoveries and trying to learn more about reality in the most objective fashion we know possible is somehow religion?

    I don't subscribe to any supernatural beliefs, and I certainly reserve judgement on that which I do not know enough about to form a reasonable conclusion, so how could you possibly say I have a religion?

    The point of math is that things like differential equations can add up to an absolutely exact result (or a range of results, depending). It's simply a matter of accumulating discovering those variables and then constantly build upon the mathematical model with new evidence. Math in science is simply the model by which all accumulated data, facts and variables can be used to achieve a reasonable degree of consistency.

    Your are correct that science can never work in absolute truths anywhere, because there are essentially infinite possibilities surrounding every circumstance. Science can only work by what is most probable to least probable.

    Perhaps the only place where science can truely find truth is in the consistency and workings of math, and the viability of various concepts given certain conditions.

    One of the advanced things that science can effectively do, is build models that work mathematically under certain conditions, and try to apply the model to reality to see if it fits.

    Sorry to take so long to get back to you, but there are times I have to quit the forum, such as when it starts eating in to work and school. Meaning is probably a poor way of putting it. "Understanding" is the word I should have used in place of the second use of "meaning". As far as having any belief, I still feel lost in the weeds which is probably a good thing.

    The audio version of Robert Monroe's Journeys Out Of Body is at now. It is pretty incredible. It is really hard for me to find time to read books outside of my studies, so listening to this on my way to work is perfect. I think I would tell people to read/listen to MBT, then listen to this, then re-read MBT again. It makes so much more sense since Tom focuses on meaning so much more than experience whereas Journeys focuses on experience. I think Tom goes into big-picture mode a little too quickly and it starts to lose meaning for me without knowing more of the details.

    Greeting! Im impressed with your understanding of communication from the other side. You articulated the fundamentals in a very understandable way. I don't know many INTJs, and don't believe Ive ever met any who believe in the supernatural. cheers!

    Not terribly insightful because it's self-evident.

    As simple as a slam dunk. He feels lost without belief.

    A quick question, Mr. RBM, about how you type the word 'ego' in your posts: why do you always capitalise all of the letters?

    Haha! In that case, Samuel Johnson was only proving his PMR limitations. And those gosh darn bills, well they're just a PMR state of mind ;-)

    Your personal life experiences.

    I see.

    Do you think it would have been a better idea for me to post the question in the thread rather than give you an opportunity to answer it privately here?

    Perhaps I didn't make myself clear enough.

    In your own words, what is it about the human consciousness that makes it natural?
    Articulate your reasoning.

    You do a lot of guessing and assuming.

    Better than acting like you have mind reading powers, I suppose.

    I suppose that's partly my fault though, as I post under the assumption that those that read them for the most part understand what entailment is and how to use it.

    However, Dogma is a hindrance. It is usually not a good idea to reject information that contradicts your set beliefs. It can be a ... dangerous habit.

    Then let me ask you this to counter my thoughts on it: What is it about the human consciousness that makes it natural? Inquiring minds would like to know.
