Time Might Only Exist in Your Head. And Everyone Else's - comment 81766
I laboriously watched the entire movie last night. Most of it is well produced & self repetitive for emphasis. There are a couple of assumptions that throw it astray:
- It assumes that consciousness is in the brain or a result of it & that it is just a physical mechanical part of human experience
- It assumes that cognizing is limited by the traditional 5 senses.
- It depends a lot on Planck’s Constant & something fundamental so small that everything else is some multiple of it.
- it creates dualism at the end of such a mess
- it really never defines what consciousness is only human behavior relative to cognition
- the principle of least action is Feynman’s PhD thesis – similar to the other stuff.
What’s interesting is his discussion of Time & his further discussion of space (which depends on Planck) & he claims space is as much of an illusion as time. In the end (last 20 minutes or so) his triples xor Trichotomies of Experience munge a lot of stuff together. There are a lot of them.
I’m not sure he ever mentions thoughts. Do we have a trichotomy of thoughts, comments & tags ? here at fbi?
Wow – Michael Strong posted this one on facebook about Richard Feynman (**) – he was human
