"Yes master"...it's true. Paramecium can THINK. It's ALIVE!! It's ALIVE !!

From the Veridican, Egor's web site, today ... :



"I find experts, you find experts the experts disagree and dispute. Even Einstein is disputed as are every theory in quantum physics. For every bit or research there is another researcher who says it ain’t so. But I’ve done my own research. I’ve studied the consciousness of paramecium with my own equipment. I’ve had three significant precognitive dreams, so unlike you, I know first hand.

Nevertheless, I’ll read the article you linked to, and because the experts disagree, I will come to my own conclusion based on my own rationality. You will have to just trust what others say.





pssst...someone get out the net, and the straight jacket. Are we insane ? Maybe, but this one is certifiable. Weeping
You have a totally amazing imagination. Bowing

You made this up, right? Shocking

Oh. my. Sadcryface

Consciousness. In paramacium (sic). With his own equipment. I breathlessly await his publication.


Hey, Egor you dolt, the plural is 'paramecia'.

We are actually quite sub-optimally "designed". In 50 years, there will be nano-bots to fix some of those "design" flaws. Tongue

RE: Are you guys insane?
I thought I went over paramecium consciousness in this forum already. Well, maybe later.

RE: Are you guys insane?
Ahh, I think you misread the first line of the wikipedia article. It doesn't say Paramecium is a genius of unicellular ciliate protozoa. It says "genus". I have friends who have similar problems with the gen(i)us edition of trivial pursuit.

Since paramecia are unicellular, consciousness like that of the brain is not possible. Consciousness emerges from interconnection.

Chas, you don't know what you're talking about. All you're doing is spouting someone else's speculation.

There you go again. Instead of addressing the point, you engage in personal attack.

Yeah, Chas. This coming from someone who's telling you that Paramecia can think. What is wrong with you ?
We can fit you in for testing at ACME Protozoa, but only if you have health insurance.
