Your electrons are a lot closer together. Maybe that doesn't matter, but maybe it's the ions themselves and not their electrons that are the microsentient agents. If we believe that the AP/EM dynamics are a thing unto themselves, independent of matter, then I would think that we would see those dynamics in the brain with the naked eye. I would see your memories in full sensory detail by looking at your brain. Could we compare the AP/EM dynamics to the broadcast signal in a cable, or to the dynamics of a flyback transformer in a CRT, or to the dynamics of the screen itself? Because I could replicate the signal in the cable or topololgy of the transformer, but if I don't have a color TV screen, I'm not going to see the TV show in color. It seems to me that the AP/EM dynamics would be the same, but the result would depend upon the capability of the whatever renders and interprets the EM. It makes more sense to me that EM does not exist independently, but is, in fact a form of awareness already. We feel EM on our skin as heat, and through our eyes as color. The EM is the same. The form that the EM takes is dependent upon the interpreter. That's why energy is so unlike a substance - because it is not only not a substance, it is the polar opposite of substance. It is that which experiences sense, and sensing is what is going on when we think we see EM 'fields'. I think there are no actual fields, only sensitivity ranges. Sensitivity ranges which belong to the thing doing the sensing, and not just a generic senseness that can be universally exported (make a monochrome monitor into a color TV). I know it sounds crazy, but I really do think that it makes more sense. Craig -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
