And remember that FWAUs aren't just of Homo sapiens . Other life-forms evolved via the ruleset were being used before H. sapiens appeared, other suitably-configured contemporary species continue to be used alongside us, and alternatives will be so used after our species disappears and is replaced by...

I don't believe there's been a time when Russel Brand wasn't a good guy. Drugs and addiction and homelessness aren't "markers of high entropy" or any such stupid judgemental thing. It's the inevitable consequence of his circumstances, which we can only really understand through Russel Bra...

....I have lost interest in some books that I might have or have read in the past because I see them now as contrary to the ideas of MBT . I suspect that it is the same for others here who have a serious interest in this material and these concepts. Some board members state that their lives have be...

Great advice from everybody. And leed, take comfort from knowing that most people here (I'm sure I can safely say) have been through exactly the same stage as you are going through. You describe it so well. I know I did - and for a long time! I used to lie almost rigid, afraid to move or even to bre...

Very nice examples there, Linda and Anna. I wonder how much the pressure of sheer survival affects the incidence of this behaviour in wild, as opposed to domestic, animal populations. Of course, we are also more able to notice it in our domesticated creatures. Altruism seems more frequent among soci...

Reports of altruism by animals, both domestic and wild, come to light every so often, and some have been posted on the forum. I recently came across one written up by the prolific 17th/18thC English journalist and novelist, Daniel Defoe (famously author of "Robinson Crusoe"). In 1724/26, h...

Thanks for your swift reply Ted, which helps clarify things (hopefully also for others, too). Your description tallies with my idea about the "FWAU(2)", constrained to the NPMR VR. It is the concept of everything being VRs, and of being constrained to one or other, or many of them, that we...

Ted, and others, I hope you may be able to throw some light onto a little 'technical' confusion I have regarding the FWAU's "lifespan". As we know, the FWAU lasts only as long as the virtual body/brain which has constrained it to the PMR VR. Once that dies, under the ruleset - the FWAU hav...

(Two posts made while I wrote this have covered some of the same territory, but I'll post it for emphasis nonetheless :) ) Knowledge such as Sainbury describes certainly eases the fear of death as a supposed annihilatory event, but the closely-related fear of physical injury - people often fear deat...

You are welcome :)

And notice that on p42, the answer to Q31 ("This is not a new idea") cites Tom Campbell among three modern precedents of the VR concept, Zuse and Fredkin being the others.

I have just received a link to Brian Whitworth's brand-new chapter (no 4) continuing the description of his VR hypothesis. This is the first totally new essay from him on the subject in 2+ years, though his earlier VR chapters continue to be revised. This latest work is called The Matter Glitch, des...

It's not a matter of finding it, it's just paying attention to the results your choices have on other. Love Bette Results meaning what? Their reactions? I don't think that's a very reliable feedback mechanism as human beings are complex creatures. You could go up to someone full of love and they'll...

All of these things are interconnected and not really separable in consequences or value. It is all, as it seems to me as I see more unfold with time, an integrated plan to get the PMR reality through the Nexus that I speak of where all of those problems from climate change to overpopulation to env...

Perhaps truer to say that our current mainstream (prevailing) culture, being 'scientisimist' at core, sets the supposedly 'correct' view - i.e. an objective Little Picture is the only picture there is, and all deviating viewpoints are eccentric and comfort-based, in origin and substance. The deviati...
