it is like you have a car but the driver (the observer) lost its identity and assumed itself as the car. by spotting the driver of the car you are undoing the illusion .


I think I understand now. Interesting.

Yeah... not so much... you are equivocating between definitions of 'faith'. I trust logic, science, and my senses because I have a lifetime's worth of experience testing them and evaluating their effectiveness. I do not call that 'faith' because it is unlike religious faith and because it varies according to the specific question at hand. Trying to equate acceptance of science and logic with faith in the supernatural is just dishonest.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

RE: Looking for 1 volunteer for an experiment
I have a little information about the "self-observing the self" experience- I think it may have to do with the fact that people have dual hemispheres.
Because of our dual hemispheres, we interact with ourselves- and may be where "the observer" experience and the "talking to ourselves" and even reasoning can come from. I read this book: which wrote about the idea that our consciousness stems from the bicameral mind:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicameralism_(psychology)

When the corpus callosum is damaged we struggle with internal dialog:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Split-brain

it is kind of a cool idea. Some people even believe this is how we as human beings developed consciousness.

The biology of mind bridges the sciences - concerned with the natural world - and the humanities - concerned with the meaning of human experience. Eric Kandel
