Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

The irony being that I am actually able to bring information about work going on in this area currently of which I have actual first hand knowledge. Then do it for the truth sake! I love to read it even if it will refute everything that I wrote in the subject. Bring those information instead of jus...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

Also, please refrain from the personal attacks, apart from boring they are also against the Terms of Service, and if you don't stop them I will be forced to report you. And the ultimate goal of your activity in this subject has been revealed. You couldn't care less about the split brain theory, whi...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

Last time I remember you accused me of breaking into a discussion about Multiple Personality Disorder, which is as remote from Buddhism as split-brain theory. Double standards, or your short memory? Could you please direct your crusade toward someone else, as I am totally fed up with your comments. ...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

I thought you have had enough of this discussion.... You are forcing yourself, or you suddenly gained interest in it? That would be good. Maybe you will do some reading, contemplating and writing that will bring something beside your prejudice toward the subject. You are most welcome. I do not claim...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

Valid debate includes all views, that is why I don't understand why it was separated from the "unconscious" topic. Anyway, there is no point in debating with someone who thinks he knows the answer and is only interested in enforcing his views on others. For me, this subject is fascinating, and the c...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

Again this hypothesis is extrapolated from the results of brain damage towards normal brain functioning. So we are back at step one again. Well, you are. I have had enough of this discussion as you are not willing to see a basic flaw in the reasoning and scientific procedure of split brain theorist...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

It may also be hard to tell if it is pink unicorns... It may be hard to discuss it further if we introduce trivialization into the matter. Or it may just prove that lesions of the corpus callosum CAUSES this behaviour to manifest. Since people with "normal" brain structure do not exhibit this sort ...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

I may be unaware of the fact that I am violently slapping my hand on the table when I am arguing with somebody, does that mean somebody else is doing the hand slapping? It may be, hard to tell. It's easier with the split-brain patients: “He was buttoning his shirt with his right hand and the left h...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

You see, it may just be the case that the lesion causes the feeling of two personalities rather than exacerbating an existing phenomenon. You should familiarize yourself with the study cases performed on patients. When you cut the corpus connecting hemispheres, they have no effective way of communi...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

I think that proper practice depends on the ability to transform knowledge into wisdom, that is, to share left brain knowledge with right brain. This may be depicted by taming the bull, or elephant. You are misinterpreting the meaning and message of the images. Obviously those who created those con...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

If it has only one mind stream, why split brain have two independent streams? If there are two mind streams, then why does it feel like one in a non-split brain? Have you ever been talking to someone while driving a car? When we think about it, it's a brilliant solution that enables you to do two t...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

If one's brain was to be divided, and each hemisphere was to continue to function independently, what becomes of the Buddhist claim that a person has only one mind-stream? The simplest answer would be to say that there are two personalities which should be approached accordingly. If we look at the ...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

Intention to make it a separate topic was totally yours. I only introduced this theory to extend the view on the subject discussed, as another puzzle that may play a role in "unconscious" phenomena. I did not expect any replies, simply because this subject is not well known to forum members. It was ...

Re: Contemplating the consequences of split brain theory

Oh, I haven't watched OP's video, but the split brain experiments referenced in Robert Wright's Buddhism and Modern Psychology course were cases where the link between the two hemispheres had been physically cut I encourage you to watch it. It's only 2 minutes long, but a good introduction to the s...

Re: Reaching the unconscious mind

And Henry Kissinger has won the Nobel Peace Prize even though "the US was still carpet-bombing Cambodia the year he picked up the prize. He's also been accused of war crimes, thanks, in part, to America's provision of arms and support to the South American dictators who carried out Operation Condor...

Yes... he received a Nobel Prize for his fanciful, childish and ridiculous theories, as you called them.
