Don't cite "founders of modern physics", cite peer-reviewed papers & experimental results or I just call "WOO" on your whole argument.

phxbillcee replies on Aug 31, 2018:
@WilliamFleming I don't understand what you mean when you say "It's not MY consciousness...". Each person's "self" is their consciousness & is a product of their brain. We have an autonomic nervous system that attends to our basic 'functions', & can even, thru things like 'motor memory' allow many things to become almost 'automatic', but that system runs in parallel to our conscious & "sub-conscious" mind. I'm a monist, not a dualist, so I agree that the 'self' being separate from the body is an illusion, but many functions actually can become conscious thru forms of meditation or bio-feedback methods.

A few pushed to end meme posting & SukiSue agreed, which sort of pulled the rug out from under why I moved there in the first place! I just didn't feel 'welcomed' anymore. I feel bad about it, but, such is life, I guess. I'm surely not worried about points, they come as they come, I'm just usually on a lot. I did take some time away to binge-watch "Longmire" on Netflix, but I try to concentrate on my groups primarily, now.

phxbillcee replies on Aug 30, 2018:
@WilliamFleming, @RandyTerry There is evidence both for & against 'free will', my point is that being the type of creatures in the type of societies & reality we exist in have little choice but to behave as if we do have 'free will'. How else can we possibly behave? We can recognize that there are forces that act upon us, but what does one do? Surrender to the idea that we're powerless & under the control of these forces & thus forfeit any control of our lives? We know that most matter,, even 'solids', are more "empty" than not, we still must trust that a chair will support us or that we are unable to walk thru walls. The same applies to 'free will'. We, collectively, while recognizing that there may be "extenuating circumstances" at times, must still be responsible for our actions & hold others responsible for theirs! I see no other way to interact & exist. Pragmatism has to come to the fore in this.

phxbillcee replies on Aug 23, 2018:
@Hitchens Just as I have no problem with 'statement' posts, I don't see the argument against 'memes' as they are just condensed statements & at least as conversation generating as any statement. I still say to look back thru the posts here & prove me wrong, but those disagreeing with me can't/won't do that! Just because a post is put in the form of a statement doesn't mean it will generate more responses just because of that. Just as with memes, it depends on the content & interest factor. Statements are just expanded memes & still rise or fall on their own!
Since they may soon not be welcome here, may as well get a few out of the way! Cave of the Bare ...

Might I suggest that someone start an Offenders meme group? You know, you get points for that too.

@Stacey48 What personal agenda, pray tell? If I misunderstood your point, I apologize, but it seemed to at least imply separating memes out of this group. Did you mean something else?

@Stacey48 Good! I don't ever wish a 'problem' with you, but I cannot avoid an honest reaction to certain things, either. I'd neither be honest to you, or myself. One of my best friends on this site, @RavenCT, & I have butted heads on censorship issues. I agree with her on many things & love her to death, but I MUST stand up for what I support, regardless if this may go against a friend on a particular issue. I consider you & @kenriley friends, tho I don't have a crush on him, but I am who I am & can be no other. I won't dissemble or lie, the most I can do is avoid a subject, & I can't always, in good faith, do that.

phxbillcee replies on Aug 23, 2018:
@minhmeister I use YT videos often as well as regular 'memes', they are memes, too! Read Dawkins, among others like Dennett on the subject. Many things/ideas are memes in their way. Honestly, even the kernel of the subject matter, if not the whole statement in a post, can be considered a 'meme'! I disagree with @Stacey48 that conversation necessarily lags with memes. With some that don't 'connect', most definitely, but if one actually goes back & actually checks, many of the meme posts have generated more conversation than the 'statement' ones. I don't see a way of filtering the non-popular/connecting ones from the ones that connect, that's sort of natural selection, you have to separate the wheat from the chaff, but overall, memes provide the start of a conversation in a succinct form that is unsurpassed to generate reactions!

phxbillcee replies on Aug 23, 2018:
@kenriley, @Stacey48 No offense from either of you (sorry) I just don' understand the problem. As I stated, I think memes quite often stimulate more conversation than just a regular statement, with a few exceptions. My point about moving was that if this group becomes "meme free" it defeats the purpose, or at least the main one, of why I moved here in the first place. I think memes are conversation starters, just condensed.

phxbillcee replies on Aug 23, 2018:
@kenriley & posting pictures of plants growing (or paint drying) can get old quick, there is no comparison with the variety of memes out there. Sure, we all will have preferences on what we think stimulates or humors us, but we have a diverse group here. Your conflation is not even close to a correlation!

phxbillcee replies on Aug 23, 2018:
It's only partially the meme itself, it's the reactions & comments to & about the meme that generates discussion. Memes are just compact discussions/ideas/social statements. Tho they should be able to stand alone, they are more a seed or catalyst for further conversation & reaction. I honestly don't see the problem!

phxbillcee replies on Aug 23, 2018:
I thought that was a good part of what this group was, which is why I moved here from "Memes..." If you look I think you'll find that quite often the memes engender just as much if not more conversation & back & forth as do any of the regular posts. If I have to, I can move again. Did a lot of that IRL for most of my life, not near as labor intensive on a computer site!
