brentan comments on Oct 20, 2018:
The structures of experience and consciousness - well I'll be darned. What could it mean? Frameworks, building blocks, biological inputs and cultural supports. The mind boggles but it is fascinating stuff.

I was with you all the way. I almost fell but I hung on. Thankfully, I wasn't hurt, just mentally exhausted. Excellent.
What do you do to look better in photos? Apart from turning your back.

I think you look very nice. I stand there like a rabbit in the headlights. I can do nothing to save the situation because I have a sinus problem that just worsens by being conscious about it.
Ancient Aliens.
brentan comments on Oct 20, 2018:
I haven't seen it. If it's about the Anunnaki, I find that fascinating. Especially how they often link it closely to the ancient civilisation in Sumer. But maybe Graham Hancock is correct about ancient civilisation being much older than is generally accepted. If so, that would give humanity much more time to learn the skills we were told were given to them in a relatively short period of time by the 'men of fame'.

The legal drinking age
brentan comments on Oct 19, 2018:
If you get drunk, you might do something immoral like having sex. If you go to war, you will only kill people and America seems to much prefer violence to sex.
Does slavery legal in islam?
brentan comments on Oct 19, 2018:
It must be because the Koran speaks to how slaves (the people of your right hand) should be treated. Curiously, the Bible focuses more on how the slaves should behave toward their masters.

Do only humans have a soul? What is a soul? Would you ever trade yours for anything?
brentan comments on Oct 19, 2018:
I like the old Biblical idea of the soul. It comes from the Hebrew word nephesh. It mean the complete person, both physical and mental components together. That understanding of soul was in use until recently - for example, 200 souls were lost in the shipwreck.

brentan comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I hope you get back to normal sleep soon. That must be draining and likely could be the cause of other problems. I use a little app on my phone called Simple Radio because it has a sleep feature to turn itself off at any setting up to 90 minutes, I think. If nothing like that would work, maybe talk to the doctor. Anyway, best wishes!

Make sure you're sitting down. The feeling you get is better than sex (well, lousy sex). No, the feeling is OK. Stand up if you like. Whatever gets gets through the anticlimax. Then it only takes 40, 000 points to get to the next level. Be patient. That's sure to be exciting.

brentan comments on Oct 17, 2018:
That's a clever article. It perceives the intention well. I think somebody much smarter than Trump himself has guided him in this strategy. But who? The article doesn't get into it. It concentrates on how to undermine his manipulation of words by way of public media and put a stop it. It is further complicated by the way Trump also cuts through the bullshit of his opposition while he bullshits to beat the band. How did words ever become so important? I guess it's the power of the information age. Words are weapons. The only way to defeat such words are to use truth. Society has been reduced to play with words to subvert values in order to justify the things people do to make a living. It would cost a lot to challenge the status quo with truth.

brentan comments on Oct 17, 2018:
My guess is the age of meritocracy is over for the moment and false values are being adopted and shared to overthrow the old way and give power to people who don't deserve it. Religion is one good way to rise to the top without merit, often without any sincerity and loaded with unverifiable benefits to society.

Is god just chaos theory?
brentan comments on Oct 16, 2018:
From what I read, chaos was the Babylonian goddess Tiamat who was killed by the god Marduk. Apparently, the word used for chaos that reigned in the the Bible before creation has the same root as Tiamat but this time it is Jehovah that conquers it.
