Matter is magical argument
From Aware Theory
(Redirected from Matter is Magical Argument)
Matter is magical argument is the argument that matter can do many amazing things, such as being plants, animals, computer, galaxies suns planets, moons, universes, dark matter, dark energy, electronic devices, drugs, chemicals, elements, cells, DNA, etc., etc., If it can do alll this why can it not be the source of consciousness and ixperiencitness through its complex structures and functionings? Since all other theories of how consciousness is produced need supernatural concepts like a soul or a mind substance, which there is no real evidence of their existence, we are left with matter being able to produce consciousness and ixperiencitness. This just adds to the apparent magical-ness of matter.
If consciousness and ixperiencitness are produced by the functioning of matter over time, then it can be approximated and replicated like all other material based things that we make. With more knowledge and applied technology we can recreate, control, and direct consciousness and ixperiencitness indefinitely into the future. What you do now and in the future will influence what you experience now, in the future, and after your current body's death, or bodies deaths, or future existing bodies deaths.
Our limited understanding of matter and energy has lead people to believe that simple scientific theories about matter and energy is all that matter is, consequently, they believe, there is no way that matter because of this simplicity can produce consciousness and ixperiencitness by itself without supernatural entities.
Beautiful and interesting things that we do not understand can be very scary.
The earth is full of surprising and beautiful experiences.
