2 Consciousness Stretches By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.55
If I had a tidy mind, none of this would ever have been written. Now the job is to put it all out there where the Universe can find it. On lulu.com, with a bit of luck, but somehow that is no longer... More > so easy. Time was you could search my name, and up would pop everything, whether you wanted it to or not. Two subjects: consciousness, the HARD question, obviously, because everything else is EASY. I’ve started the numbering this time around at 1, how original, and if my luck holds and the windmills don’t rise up and crush us, lulu will offer them in numerical order, $25 Canadian a pop, and if you read them in that order, it will all make sense that much quicker. Not QUICK, you understand. But quickER. And then EVERYTHING ELSE. A strange mixture of dancing, and learning, and being ME, and, in passing, answers to all those questions no one else has answers TO. Please … be my guest … my PAYING guest …< Less
1 Consciousness Stirs By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.59
SUBJECTIVE EXPERIENCE. And if I wanted to be TOTALLY PC, I would say ‘experience-ing’; because the idea that ‘consciousness’ is SOMETHING became more of a hindrance than a... More > blessing EONS ago (in Expeditionary Time, that is. Expeditionary Eons are a bit SHORTER than the other kind … ). Subjective experience, that we KNOW from the INSIDE (and vastly over-interpret from ALL sides). A ‘phenomenon of interest’, sure. But really JUST SOMETHING THE BRAIN DOES. Down there in the hippocampi. And even if sea-horses DID have feet … shouldn’t they be HOOVES? Consciousness, subjectivity, is not a GIRT BIG THING, the way my species would LIKE it to be. It’s a little trick. Spectacular … but LITTLE. As opposed to terrible … but GREAT. That was something else, in another time and place …. Which reminds me of a dilemma, totally irrelevant and I won’t be here to witness the outcome, if any. On my tombstone … “Elvis has left the building”? … or “Grind me up, Scotty … “? As if it could possibly matter ….< Less
3 Consciousness Smiles By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.07
No one wants to touch the ‘hard question of consciousness’. Well, that’s not really fair, because EVERYONE just KNOWS what it is: consciousness is ‘the mind’,... More > consciousness is ‘the will’, consciousness is ‘the soul’. Consciousness is COMPLEXITY, consciousness just POPS out of all those lovely brain networks and oscillations and reverberations and suchlike. But there are TWO little problems with all that: one, that ‘just knowing’ tells you NOTHING about how things really work; and the only GOOD theory of ‘consciousness itself’, what it IS and how it WORKS, is THIS one. Which you haven’t come across yet. So read these, yes there are a LOT of them, in order; you keep reading, and I’ll keep writing, and between us we’ll wrestle this sucker to the ground …< Less
C Dance for Me By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.59
Luckily there are still things to do that are interesting, healthy, fun, and completely pointless. Although dance can and does serve certain purposes (some of them, of course, cultural, religious,... More > spiritual and suchlike but even I can't object to EVERYTHING ... ), the desired and sometimes even ACQUIRED skill of MOVING THE BODY IN A CERTAIN WAY TO ACHIEVE A CERTAIN APPEARANCE (yes, it's about THAT type of dancing) is as close to an end in itself as we come. Like anything else, it can be SIMPLE (where's the fun in THAT?) or COMPLICATED. Ideally, no need for you to agree, somewhat RIGOROUS and EVIDENCE-BASED. (And you thought it was supposed to be FUN? Who's YOUR teacher? ... ) And THAT, before the punishment is handed out, was a JOKE.< Less
A Proof of Intelligent Life On Earth By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.59
Reading Dan Brown's 'Origin', and realizing that my Mission is not as unique as I thought. Can't WAIT to see how something as insignificant as a 'fact' could make even the lightest dent in the human... More > capacity for silliness and superstition. In the meantime, SPOILER ALERT AGAIN, it's time to republish "Proof of Intelligent Life On Earth", with the original cover because it's SO classy and entrancing. Oh, yes, the SPOILER: it is the easiest thing in the world, once you get the drift, to show that ANY belief in gods, ghosts, occult realms and powers, the supernatural, psychic abilities, and anything smacking of religion or even 'spirituality' can be shown to be untenable (for untenable read 'false', or 'silly') just by doing TWO things: TALKING sense and MAKING sense. And no need for a girt big overstuffed novel about arcane religious guff and the same old world conspiracy plot with different characters; just read THIS. And THINK about it ...< Less
7 Think Tank By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.59
Did you know that we have a few Neanderthal genes in us? Some things never change ... I'll leave it at that. Nudge! Nudge! Wink! Wink! But one thing HAS changed ... if there ever was an 'upward... More > trend' in human intelligence, it must have lost its nerve somewhere in the lower stratosphere, and seems to be reaching what could be an all-time LOW. Look around ... the statistical contribution of intelligent life to human outcomes seems to be vanishingly small, and the vanishing seems to be well on its way. Lulu gives me a space to fill. I fill it. Otherwise I might not even have bothered to point that out ...< Less
B: Magnus Opium By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.55
What would the world be like if we could BE logical and ACT logically? Does anyone else think that it's a PITY we will never know? All the logic in the world will not make a SCRATCH, let alone a... More > DENT, in the morass of delusion, paranoia, and 'faith' (oh no, don't tell me he doesn't even believe in FAITH ... but luckily no-one cares what I believe. So I PROBABLY won't get burnt at the stake ... ) that is the belief-system of the human race and its seven billion (or is it EIGHT yet?) mostly starving and desperately unhappy members. Now THAT is a logical prediction ...< Less
5 According to Fawkes By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $19.59
Spoiler alert! ... I am asked to include a description, so I include a description. We are a well-behaved little Expedition ... sometimes! But how do you describe a veritable VORTEX of electrical... More > code, furiously buzzing around inside a biological miasma ... the output leaking through the fingers on to the screen, and pretending that it is the 'chosen' language of a COMPETENT brain? Perhaps the only logical conclusion is that, if YOU were a Universe seeking to describe yourself in terms that are both accurate AND user-friendly, you'd better not put all your eggs in the basket of random biological and neurological EVOLUTION. Because THIS is what you get ...< Less
6 Nicely Random and Wraithy By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.07
Wraithy, yes. The workings of the conceptual mycelium that somehow occupies this cranium is both foggy, in the BEST sense; and HAUNTED by the wraiths of every event in this brain's history. When a... More > 'system' is trying hard to figure out its own 'operating system', it will sometimes get so engrossed in the appearance of its own virtual navel it forgets that TIME may be INFINITE ... but ITS time is not. But if there was time for me (well, IT, actually ... ) to WRITE this ... perhaps there's time for YOU to read it.< Less
4 Lulu Doesn't Like the Name By Timothy Mead
eBook (PDF): $20.55
Actually called "The Me That Enters And Detects", proving that some of these titles SHOULD be replaced with numbers. The first three volumes set the stage, and a nicely messy stage it is.... More > I'm not a big believer in EDITING, PROOF-READING, THAT kind of thing. So follow the numbers, and if you decide that anything is NOT in the right order for your taste, READ THEM IN A DIFFERENT ORDER. It's all a jigsaw-puzzle anyway, and wherever the pieces fit, that's where they'll fit.< Less
