  1. Commonly known as cognitive dissonance. I only reached 2.35. This analysis is pointless given the levels of societal brainwashing, drug use, alcohol abuse and wait for it… ‘mental illness’, that is even displayed by some of the people who comment on this forum.

    Then you can heap on extreme political ideologies, often displayed by people on here and you can throw in their prejudices.

    I prefer Rupert Sheldrake’s ideas on the ‘Extended Mind’.

  2. Different people perceive what they see and hear with various degrees of accuracy ranging from very accurate to very erratic.

    Smart people have more accurate perception than people with lesser mental capacity.

    People who are honest think more honestly about what they see and hear than people who are dishonest.

    Various other factors besides intelligence and honesty influence what we project onto our worldview. Being friendly, humble, proud, educated, experienced, weak, strong, fast, slow, and other traits also affect how we see the world.

    People who are smart, honest, with positive traits, attitudes, and experience, project more accurately than people at the other end of the spectrum.

    Intelligent people score higher on IQ tests than people with less mental ability because intelligent people process information more accurately.

    People make their projections based on all these different attitudes, traits, and factors. One person’s projections may be much more realistic than another person’s projections.

  3. “Whatever is in me determines what I see in the world around me” , wrong , not “determines” but “conditions” , “molds” , “taints” , interprets, clarifies or distorts … The world around me is “reconstructed” by mind so as a link between “I” an “It” called “meaning” may be felt, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exists in its own right.

  4. The fundamental flaw — deliberate? — from the get-go is the premise that the “projector” is “in the head”, and its output is one’s “mind”. All else that follows this “strong assumption” inherits that invalid premise. Thirty seconds.

    I have to look up Carl Jones’ “Extended Mind”, for I have not encountered that phrase before. I prefer SHARED MIND, Mind beyond Space and Time as taught by Yogi Bhajan, which has made more sense, had more practical application, than any other I’ve encountered in half a century’s study of the Mind-Body Problem, so-called.

  5. Alan Donelson: the ‘Extended Mind’ is not my idea. Your mind is not in your head, & therefore is extends as far as you can see, hear and smell, but vision in humans is the primary reality construct & the fact that nearly all people see the same construct, our minds are outside of our heads. When we sleep, light deprivation does no harm, but when we are awake, light deprivation for extended periods is dangerous. This is why blindfold & a hood is so effective during torture and why certain careers train how to deal with it. If you are awake and you find yourself in total darkness, your mind reverts to old newsreel in order to cope. If you felt totally safe with this sudden darkness, you could fall asleep.
