It’s a metaphor, ya dope. It doesn’t even exist in the most abstract form per se. It’s part of a stage theory, on every level: lifespan, evolution and brain development,.
Remember, top level has no memory. That’s how we know the rest exist.
It’s like if I advocated for ravens thinking they were literally like writing desks.
This is literally a false (conception of) consciousness.
Stupid fucking atheists.
There is no thought in consciousness, only the result of it. The product: I think this. You must begin another loop of reference to feedback any way to explain that. The thought process is unconscious. We know alternate states exist in medicine because MRI and anesthesia. Fucking STOP.
The Self, too, is unconscious in root. What do you think therapy is???!
“Conscious awareness” of WHAT, exactly?
It’s like saying there’s no ocean, only the surface of the bloody ocean, because humans can’t touch the bottom!
Stupid people are completely product-driven, too much consciousness, not enough process.
The stupid cannot introspect. How does introspection even happen without an unconscious? But they’re still urge-driven. Well, by golly-gosh gee whizz, I wonder where those urges could possibly come from?
FYI CBT is hilarious and tragically flawed as a modality.
This quote about humility from an atheist tickles me, the opposite of triggering.
Materialism is the opposite of abstract but you’re no dualist?
I guess doing real work would be too hard?
Hey, you forgot your
you and AGW, pick one up for them too!
You’re not science, fam!
If you have feelings for others e.g. family, you know Dennett’s bigoted view of the human experience is backward bullshit. It doesn’t even work if all humanity were extreme spergs, characterized by low affect and empathy, the highly self-involved and callous, since the fears/phobias/urges drive them more than the rationalizations that follow. We have studies on this – people can explain away any old shit they do consciously, it lies.
