Our thoughts are in the world. They are in the news; they are on Facebook and Twitter, and they are in the grocery store and the hospital and the grocery store and the hospital. But we all know that they are always out of the corner of our eye. We know that we don’t always make the best choices, but we also know that we don’t always make the best choices because of our thoughts.
For example, I was recently reading about the book, “The Consciousness of the Living”, by Daniel Dennett, an MIT professor. In the book, Dennett argues that our mental state, or “consciousness,” is a kind of “self-awareness” that is somehow inherent in our very thoughts and actions.
I’m really not sure what Dennett had to say on this topic, but I think I understand what he was talking about. For instance, I often remember my mother telling me that her father had died and that I was a little upset about that. I’m not sure I’m upset that my father died, but it’s not like he was always around to be upset.
This is a good example of what Dennett calls the “Powers of Consciousness.” Consciousness is all about the way we take in information, organize it, and then act upon it. When you think something, you are taking information/cognitively processing information and then acting on it. For instance, when I am talking to you, I am thinking and processing your thoughts.
Consciousness is about the “power to act.” What Dennett terms “free will vs. control” is sort of a catchall catchall to describe what happens when we are in the grip of conscious or self-determined thoughts. When you think something, you are thinking and taking in information. All that happens later is that you decide to do something, or not do something.
You might think this is all a bunch of cognitive bullshit. But here we have free will, or the ability to choose, and that is just as real as conscious thought. A person can choose to do something and not do something. And that is the true dichotomy that we are all familiar with. Now, what I am not familiar with is why there is such a wide spectrum of cognitive behavior among people. For some people, it’s about survival.
I know this is a controversial statement, and I know that I am not the first person to make it. There have been a lot of studies conducted on the subject of cognitive behavior which have confirmed that people do things for certain reasons (such as self-preservation, but also to satisfy their own desires), and that those reasons are often unconscious. You know what I mean.
The term orgiastic refers to a kind of activity that brings about a high degree of sensory and motor activity. You can call a lot of things orgiastic, but orgiastic is a better choice when you want to be specific. I know this is a controversial statement, and I know that I am not the first person to make it.
We have all heard it quite often in the past, but in this current trailer, you can hear some of the comments where the developers call for the developers to be more careful in getting some of the other elements out.
The trailer refers to the orgiastic movement, and at least one of the other characters in the trailer calls it a form of “sex.” I know that some people feel that orgiastic sex should be called “orgiapathy,” but I don’t think that is really the term that is used.
