I was mostly distressed by the way you appeared to be arguing with each other, but saying the same things. :)

The issue here might be resolved with reference to Learys 8 circuit model. Discounting, for the purposes of this excercise, the "taking off into space" bollox, so we are left with the 4 we are most familiar with, we seem to have two circuits which are governed largely by the body and two which are governed by a meta-level of mind itself.

Not to say the physical being doesn't have a degree of effect over the symbolic and the domestic circuits but I don't think it always will (bodies can be calmed by force of concentration) And the degree of freedom/constriction will differ from individual to individual. Bottom line is that to have any degree of control over your own mind there must be a duality - a thinker who is governing the mind.

This is Cartesian Duality as I understand it and apparently Wittgenstein has proven it wrong. Not sure if this was before or after he became a christian but hey, smartest guy on the internets reckons he was right then who am I to argue  :lulz:

you fucker. how am I supposed to read an 82 page thread that's comprised of the failings of 3 or 4 other threads in no cohesive order whatsoever?

It turns out that there wasn't any cohesion, anyway.  The posts are all the same, on all the threads he posted in.

It's true.  I threw everything in the unlimited thread, and it all fit together 169% seamlessly.

True. It flows surprisingly smoothly. I discovered this after I got over my temper tantrum upon realizing he was merging shit WHILE I WAS READING.

This is why I don't read the stuff.  It's all just an undifferentiated wall of text that generates a lot of smoke and heat, but very little light.

I really liked the OP Nigel, shame DK had to show up and ruin what was shaping up to a good discussion.  Anyway, I'm of the personal opinion that it is impossible to separate the corporeal from the spiritual, and saying that a body is just a body, which may or may not affect your behavior is akin to saying that water may or may not get you wet.  Sorry if this got said before by someone else, I stopped reading at like page two.

Thanks!

Yeah, that's pretty much what I'm saying... your body is what it is. You're not secretly, magically a dragon inside that body. What it is is what it IS. You can imagine that you really for reals look different or "are" a boy or a girl or a cat or a raccoon or a dragon, but until you can conjure up a really for reals different body, you're stuck with the real-life one you have, which is exactly what it is, and there you are, for as long as you live.

Cool I'm glad we're on the same page.  Also as soon as I posted that I had to go write something profound, but basically saying that not sleeping, eating badly etc have a more profound effect on people (in terms of personality, behavior, sanity, etc) than anyone seems to realize.  I have to go do some errands otherwise I'd post that fucker.

Just a word of encouragement for the OP.  I've showed it to a few friends (all grad students) and they all liked the post.  So fuck DK and his dualism.  Keep writing and ranting, some of us really enjoy what you say.
