A Hundred Trillion Billion Billion Years

100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years is a long time, but it’s not even scratching the surface of infinity.  No matter how long I spend holding down the zero key, there will never be a point where I begin to get close to representing infinity. In this universe, time marches forward in one direction. Time has no future bounds…

The Natural Intelligence Paradigm – Simon G. Powell

It’s not too often that I run across a philosophy lecture that really causes me to take a step back and look at the universe with a fresh perspective.

He didn’t publish The Sensory Order until 1952, when he found “with considerable surprise”…

Most of what I talk about on here either comes from a priori logic and philosophy or experimentally based science.  This article is pure conjecture, but my conjecture is rooted in logic and science.  I’m purely speculating and theorizing, but if you share my views on electric cosmology and evidence based science, I think you…

Why It’s Impossible For Reductive Materialism To Fully Explain The Universe

It is generally accepted that reductive materialism is the only acceptable philosophy for a scientist to hold.  It’s a form of physicalism that treats the entire universe as if everything is physical.  To quote wiki, “It asserts that mental events can be grouped into types, and can then be correlated with types of physical events in the brain.” This type of philosophy…
