A Particle in Woods Makes No Sound – About Time – 6
Mind Cannot be Separated from Matter
In my last post I mentioned about Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen experiment. Back in 1350’s (1930’s Gregorian) when this experiment was proposed scientific facilities were not advance enough to check its validity. It was not until 1402 Hijri (1982 Gregorian) that Alain Aspect in Paris conducted experiments that proved beyond doubt that Einstein was wrong. Here’s more about his experiments in plain English: Science Blog – Alain Aspect.
What it all concludes to? Mind cannot be separated from matter.
To paraphrase, a particle falling in the woods does NOT make a sound if there is no one to hear it. Strange – but true!
Why do people cling with such ferocity to belief in a mind-independent reality? It is surely because if there is no such reality, then ultimately (as far as we can know) mind alone exists. And if mind is not a product of real matter, but rather is the creator of the illusion of material reality (which has, in fact, despite the materialists, been known to be the case, since the discovery of quantum mechanics in 1925 [1344 Hijri]), then a theistic view of our existence becomes the only rational alternative to solipsism.

So what are the real life benefits that we can immediately get out of this research?
My Time is what “I” perceive it to be. My time can radically be different from your time. Who is “I”? That’s the million dollar question that I have tried to answer in my previous posts. Tell me what is real?
Tell me does the the real you who’s inside you somewhere, wears a watch to see the present time?
Tell me does the real you who’s inside you has a calendar to see the current date?
No, for God’s sake no.
If you follow the Gregorian calendar the the date for the real you may be Tuesday, November 09, 2010. But is it the real date? What this date really signifies?
