    It's my speculation that computers DO mimic human behavior by accidental projection, where because we're concentrating on making a carbon copy of the human mind with AI, we screw up because we don't know enough about it. There's a great difference.
    Meh. I've lost interest in this thread. Said what I had to say.

    In my opinion, the mind is like a highly advanced router. It doesn't house consciousness itself, but sorta is like the radio that tunes in all of our higher spiritual pieces, modules, wholes, etc.

    So if you're on drugs, alcohol etc, you're not altering the consciousness itself, you're just tuning into different frequencies?

    Wtf?

    I can understand considering this, but it sounds like you've completely accepted this notion. What evidence: I'm dying to hear.

    True enough. We only grafted parts to make a working whole. A Frankenstein heart.

    Well, altered states of consciousness to me /are/ different frequencies. It's just that when you take drugs, you might get a jumbled mix :P. Plus, taking the router analogy, the drugs could do something to the router.

    As far as evidence goes, I have nothing empirical :P. I just took what I knew about the brain supposedly being holographic, and mixed it with the idea of "phasing". More info on that here:

    Holographic in that when you take a piece out of the whole, the piece you took out is a smaller representation of the whole. You can look at the part, and see the whole. If you've ever seen pictures made up of other pictures, it's kind of like this. Imagine a picture of a lion made up of thousands of pictures of other lions that were really small pictures .
