Daniel Dennett Consciousness Explained From Bacteria to Bach and Back The Evolution of Minds WordPress blog

Daniel Dennett is undoubtedly one of the most influential, original, but also most controversial contemporary thinkers in the philosophy of mind. As a representative of a consistently naturalistic view of complex topics such as consciousness, intentionality and free will, he is one of the few philosophers who are known beyond the disciplinary boundaries, especially in the circles of cognitive neuroscience. Dennett’s main concern is to reconcile our everyday understanding of consciousness and personality with scientific ideas about mental processes and to put it on an evolutionary basis. Daniel C. Dennett books: Content and Consciousness, appeared in 1969, followed by Brainstorms (1978), Elbow Room (1984), The Intentional Stance (1987), Consciousness Explained (1991), Darwin’s Dangerous Idea (1995), Kinds of Minds (1996), and Brainchildren: A Collection of Essays 1984-1996 (MIT Press and Penguin, 1998), Freedom Evolves (Viking Penguin, 2003), Sweet Dreams: Philosophical Obstacles to a Science of Consciousness , was published in 2005 by MIT Press, Breaking the Spell (Viking, 2006). He co-edited The Mind’s I with Douglas Hofstadter in 1981. He is the author of over four hundred scholarly articles on various aspects on the mind, published in journals ranging from Artificial Intelligence and Behavioral and Brain Sciences to Poetics Today and The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. His most recent books are Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking (Norton, 2013), Caught in the Pulpit: Leaving Belief Behind, with co-author Linda LaScola (Amazon.com, 2013), and From Bacteria to Bach and Back: The Evolution of Minds (Norton, 2017). He gave the John Locke Lectures at Oxford in 1983, the Gavin David Young Lectures at Adelaide, Australia, in 1985, the Tanner Lecture at Michigan in 1986, and the Copernicus Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at Krakow in 2017, among many others.

Prof. Dierk Schroeder and Superhuman Magnetic Man Miroslaw Magola discuss Isaac Newton’s universal law of gravitation.

Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that every particle attracts every other particle in the universe with a force which is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. This is a general physical law derived from empirical observations by what Isaac Newton called inductive reasoning. It is a part of classical mechanics and was formulated in Newton’s work Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (“the Principia”), first published on 5 July 1687. When Newton presented Book 1 of the unpublished text in April 1686 to the Royal Society, Robert Hooke made a claim that Newton had obtained the inverse square law from him.

In today’s language, the law states that every point mass attracts every other point mass by a force acting along the line intersecting the two points. The force is proportional to the product of the two masses, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Newton’s law has since been superseded by Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, but it continues to be used as an excellent approximation of the effects of gravity in most applications. Relativity is required only when there is a need for extreme accuracy, or when dealing with very strong gravitational fields, such as those found near extremely massive and dense objects, or at very close distances (such as Mercury’s orbit around the Sun).

Stephen Hawking predicted a race of superhumans will take over the world.

Physicist Michio Kaku on exploring the universe via avatars, in Mysteries of the Mind and What about telekinesis? said: Stan Lee a comic-book creator who co-launched superheroes like the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and the X-Men for Marvel Comics

Prof. dr. Dierk Schroeder wrote in his book ” Intelligent Identification and Control for Nonlinear Systems ” that:

World’s media now acknowledges and recognizes the many magnetic people in the world.

Presently many of the worlds media like the BBC, The Huffington Post, Daily Mail, Doscovery Channel, History Channel, many blogs and social media are featuring and writing about the many people who have the ability to attract objects to their body.
When I first discovered my gift 25 years ago, there was no highly developed, widespread Internet, now however, with the sophistication of this media and with the publicity it provides, has inspired many people to discover that they also have this gift, so that today in the world there are a whole host of “magnetic people”.
Many children unencumbered by prejudice and skepticism have come to this ability naturally and some children can even raise objects from the ground against gravity a further step from a purely sticking phenomena. This levitation completely negates the arguments of skeptics who are preoccupied seemingly with adhesives etc. the use of talcum powder, and the major criticism has always been no objects are raised or levitated only just stuck on the surface of the body.
I am very happy with this growth, however I would like to see and I am confident that I will see, in the future, the very near future, some of these people develop their brain’s conscious power to focus not just to stick objects or levitated objects, a mere trick, but you “will” other events such as telekinetic events and acts, that is, but to create a vehicle for doing good works.
Currently scientists in the field of physics specifically quantum mechanics have said that there is or are no limitations in realizing these goals.
My conscious development is facilitated by my own meditative process not unlike some yoga practices. These exercises and steps I have described in intimate detail along with scientific tests that have been conducted by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Ruhenstroth-Bauer, biochemists at the German Max Planck Institute, Dr. Friedbert Karger, plasma physicist at the German Max Planck Institute, Dr. David Lewis, neurophysiologist at UK’s renowned neuro-research center MindLab and Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, professor of Physics at St. Petersburg State Technical University in Russia; in my book titled “Altered States of Consciousness”, a journey to the limits of the thinkable.
