    I really appericate seeing your posts.

    Consciousness is a system I hope to understand much better before I die.

    Thanks, I enjoyed that presentation. Science just keeps confirming how consciousness shapes reality, and transcending the reactionary state seems to be the key to better things.

    He may be one of our own kind, bud. He is acting quite 'defensive'.

    That was pretty much effortless, I'm happy to say.

    The next logical step would actually be to design the appropriate experiment, if it is possible to experiment. But this is not feasible for me as an individual. I have to determine if experimentation is possible, if it is feasible, if I am capable, and if it is necessary. Experimentation is not always the next logical step.

    Now we are getting somewhere. There are many things I believe that do not come under the purview of experimental science if that is what you mean. Many, many things. But I can experiment in the sense of experience?

    Who said I don't question my presumptions? I just said I doubt your mind will be changed about the non existence of (a personal) God like my belief in a personal God is unlikely to change. There is nothing in that to say I haven't, don't, or won't question my presumptions.

    Well, you aren't me, so I will reject your advice, and continue to challenge myself by investigating other BS that smells different from my own BS.

    Thank you for the clarification.
    I believe Jesus Christ was God in the flesh - so I do think the consciousness system became a "personal deity." We diverge significantly on this point. I doubt that will change. But I am hopeful that in time I can at least understand what Campbell and you are saying, even if I think it misses the mark. I don't think a larger consciousness system negates the existence of a personal God. What if the larger consciousness system created a personal God? If it can appear as anything it wanted to, then where is the line drawn between what is and what is perceived by humans?

    Schumacher is an interesting guy, but his book is more than interesting. He is said to have handed it to his daughter as he lay dying, and told her this was what his life had been leading up to - or something like that, anyway. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "deity personification" as an "error of data interpretation;" I can't relate it to my own self, so I don't know how to relate it to Schumacher. As you know, Campbell's site doesn't "compute" with me, though I have tried to understand it from the source and indirectly from your many posts here. I find Schumacher much more direct and clear, personally. Similarly to Schroedinger, Bohr, Bohm, even though they are not as mystical or religious as Schumacher. Maybe it is because I am starting from the beginning and have to work myself up to Campbell? Schumacher was also where I "started" I think.

    I hope you enjoy it. I know I did ... It is "religious." I hope you can still enjoy the points he makes.

    The only operational Apple product I own is a very nicely made gray 1990s IEC connector power cord stamped with their logo, which supplies the AC to a Cerwin Vega subwoofer. I take pride in knowing that at least my power cord was made in America. The sub is made in China, though it's still working great after 6 years so far.

    Well this is now far beyond my knowledge level, but I would hazard a guess that the much higher heat than normal (within apple's crammed physical layouts in their modern machines) might be enough to cause certain metal parts within the hard drive to expand ever so slightly beyond their normal very precise tolerance ranges and cause intermittent faults of the type we see in the OPs description.
