The Three Known Sounds


If you were to walk into a forest and stand quietly beside a flowing brook, you would soon become aware of various types of sound.

Noise
You would become aware of the sound produced as the water flows down the brook and as the wind blows though the trees and grasses. This sound has been named: it is called noise. Noise is the name assigned to naturally occurring sound. It results from nature interacting with nature at the inanimate level.

Communication
As you continued to stand there, you would become aware of another type of sound, the sound that the forest animals (i.e., the beasts) make. Forest animals purposefully make sound. This purposefully created sound is not called noise, it is called communication. Forest animals communicate what they are conscious of by making specific kinds of sounds to denote that it exists. The purpose of animal communication, then, is to vocally symbolize the conscious existence of a physical something or relationship. For example, forest animals communicate anger, fear, acceptance, and a desire to mate. The sounds forest animals make can seem quite noisy to humans, because their sounds seem to lack a well defined or understandable purpose. When the sounds of forest-animal communication lack a known or defined purpose, they revert back to being called noise.

Language
Then, as you returned to society, you would become aware of the sounds that humans create. Like all high-functioning animals, humans also purposefully create sound. But purposefully created human sound is not called communication. It is called language. Unlike forest-animal communication, the purpose of which is to vocally symbolize the conscious existence of a sensually known something or relationship, the purpose of human language is to explain the nature of human nature and that upon which its continued happy existence depends.

Also unlike the other animals, humans have the ability to create visual symbols to denote the existence of the sound symbols they create. Examples of visual symbols humans have created to symbolize the existence of the vocalized sounds of their language are displayed within this very blog.

Notice how the way some people use language seems very noisy. These people seem to be using common terms of the human language, but the way they are using these terms leaves us confounded as to what they are actually talking about—or worse, what they believe they are actually talking about.

They may believe they are using language in a proper human way, but they are not. Even the human language, when not referencing something known or knowable, reverts back to being called noise.

To keep this blog from being considered noisy, I will begin by discussing why humans make certain types of audio/visual symbols called the terms of their language, and then advance that discussion until I get to the sound visually symbolized as explanation. Then I will have the material with which to develop a completely new philosophy:


From this foundation, I will be able to explain the sound visually symbolized as - God. But first we must start with something much more concrete.

The Intellectual Nature of Terms

The Terms One Uses are an Indicator of Ones

Intellectual Development


Chair
To point and say chair requires a much different kind of effort than explaining what chair means.

If one were to point at a certain physical object in reality and then simply uttered the sound visually symbolized as chair, one’s purpose for uttering that sound would be sensually known. Another would know what it is one was talking about. The other would know the meaning of and purpose for one’s creation of the sound visually symbolized as chair.

In this specific instance, one would be acting in a manner similar to the other high-functioning animals. One would simply be vocally symbolizing the physical existence of the object one’s brain is conscious of.

If, however, that object is not within the sensual range of the other’s brain, then one would need to explain why one was uttering the sound visually symbolized as chair. This requires an effort of a very different kind.

Therefore, prior to being able to explain anything, I must first explain why the audio/visual symbol explanation exists. I will begin with the audio/visual symbol know and then progress the discussion through validate and then through understand to finally end up at explanation.

………………………………………………...

Know
For others to know what one knows requires that their brain is also being sensually stimulated by what it's physical existence is.

"Knowing is that automatically occurring sensual response between two real objects when at least one of these real objects is a brain."

 Knowing that a physical something exists cannot be avoided, controlled, influenced, or in any other way manipulated. But it can be denied. Denial of what is sensually known to exist is a psychological issue and, as such, is outside the philosophical focus of this blog.

Try this “knowing” test. Look at a real physical something, an object in reality. Then, without doing anything else, don’t let your brain know it. Don’t let your brain know that it actually does exist in a real physical way. It is impossible for your brain to “not-know” that a real physical something exists.

To know that a physical something exists is the first, the primary, requirement of being able to explain what it is and how it relates to the known existence of oneself.

When one says one knows something, one is saying that that something actually does physically exist and that any other person can also know it. If that something is not within the sensual range of the other’s brain, then one has the responsibility of validation.


Validate
To validate that what one is saying is rational (i.e., that the claim pertains to reality) requires that another’s brain is able to sensually know that it does exist.

To validate means to prove the existence of that which is claimed to be know. Validation requires directing ones brain to sensually observe that which is claimed to exist in a physically sensual way. This; of course, requires that another’s brain is able to sensually know that it does physically exist.

For example, if one were to claim, “There is a large orange orangutan riding around on a unicycle outside this room,” validating that claim is rational requires that its claimed physical existence is able to be known—that is, that it is able to be sensually observed.

To validate that what one (or another) is saying is rational [i.e., that it existence, physically exists], one (or the other) must go outside this room and sensually observe that which is claimed to exist there.

The requirement is that there actually is “a large orange orangutan riding around on a unicycle outside this room.” It must actually physically exist, otherwise the claim stating it does exist cannot be validated and the claim reverts to noise.

Absent the ability to validate a claim as rational, one has no option but to consider the claimant to be mistaken, is a liar, is delusional, or perhaps is a believer in the validity of that claim only because it was made by someone he or she trusts.

The ability to understand what it is that is being claimed to exist is a more fundamental and is, therefore, a more important issue.


Understand
For another to understand what one is saying requires that his or her mind is able to conceptually imagine what its physical existence would need to be if it were to be sensually known to exist. Did you notice how our focus has changed from brain orientation to mind orientation with this last comment?

Note: It is not proper to claim that a mind is or can be sensually known to exist. This is because such a claim implies the physical existence of a real object. When we use the audio/visual symbol mind, what we are referencing with it  is a specific type of functionality of the human brain. Importantly; no other animal has demonstrated the human brain functionality termed - mind.

To this point, we have been dealing with brain consciousness. Brain consciousness requires that a brain is being physically stimulated. Brain consciousness involves sensually knowing that a physical something exists. Sensual brain knowing is a prerequisite of that same brain becoming factually conscious of what it sensually knows to exist. Evidence of factual consciousness is called an image—a brain-image.

Mental Awareness
When discussing the idea visually symbolized as understand, we must transition from brain orientation to mind orientation; that is, from brain consciousness to mind awareness. Where consciousness deals with the factual nature of brain-sensing, awareness deals with the true nature of mind[mental]-perception. In other words, we transition from the factual nature of brain-sensing through the true nature of conscious imaging to the perceptual nature of mental-awareness. We demonstrate perceptualized understanding whenever we explain the true nature of that which our brain is factually conscious of.

Identity
Where brain consciousness is dependent on the factual nature of brain stimulation, resulting in that factual brain stimulation being ‘truthfully’ imaged, mental[mind] awareness is dependent on the true nature of conscious brain imagining, resulting in that brain-image becoming rationally identified. It is “rational identification” that a mind uses to understand the absolute nature of what it's brain sensually knows to be the case about the factual nature of human nature and that upon which its happy existence depends.

Where consciousness is the ability of a brain to create a true image of that which is physically stimulating it (i.e., that which it factually knows to exist): Awareness is the ability of that same brain’s mind function to purposefully create the identify of whatever its brain has consciously created a true image of.

Purpose
Where brain sensing is an objectively focused idea, brain consciousness is a factually focused idea. Where mental/mind awareness is an image-focused idea, reasoned understanding is an identity-focused idea. The point of commonality, then, between brain and mind functions is identity. Where the objects of reality are automatically sensed by innate brain functions, their identity is created by its purposeful mind functions. In other words, one’s own identity is not automatically sensed by one’s conscious brain, it is purposefully created by the rational mind function of ones brain.

Note that it is the objects of reality that are sensed by a brain to become the facts resulting from that brain’s sensual experiences. Those facts are what consciousness converts into a true image of whatever is responsible for them. Since that brain’s images are constructed of fact, then, they are considered to be a true mental representation of that which is responsible for causing those facts to exist; i.e., by the absolute nature of that object's physical existence.

The primary function of a brain is to convert what it factually knows to exist into a true image of that which is responsible for bringing those facts into existence. The primary function of a mind is to convert the true nature of brain-images into the conceptual nature of intellectual understanding.

Intellectual understanding cannot exist in the absence of perceptualized identity, which cannot exist in the absence of true-imaging, which cannot exist in the absence of factual-stimulation, which cannot exist in the absence of the absolute nature of physical reality.

Sensual knowing takes place between a brain and another physical object, whereas rational understanding takes place entirely within that same brain’s mind function. What a brain factually senses the absolute nature of is called an object of reality; what its mind rationally understands the abstract nature of is called that same objects perceptualized identity. Notice how an object’s identity does not exist in a real physical way. It exists in an abstract mental way—meaning its identity is created from what a brain factually knows to exist. It is in this way that identity is said to be objective, because it is created from the absolute nature of the physical existence of the objects of reality.

Conceptual Intelligence
For a brain to create a true image of a real object requires that that object's physical existence exists within that brain in a specific kind of way, as the facts of which the true nature of its brain-image ultimately consists. For that same brain’s perceptual-mind function to identify what its brain has consciously created a true image of requires that that image exists in a specific kind of way; as the information of which its identity will ultimately consist. When this is the case, that brain’s mind function is then able to abstract information [about the object] from its identity and use it to construct the rational nature of the concepts upon which its intelligence depends.

The previous is saying that a concept is the epistemological concomitant of (i.e., it is the intellectual equivalent of) the absolute nature of the physical existence a real object. It is as if they exist as one and the same: Caution- they do not. Objects exist physically; the concepts resulting naturally from their identification exist intellectually. Concepts cannot exist in the absence of the absolute nature of the physical existence of the objects upon which their intellectual nature depends.

An example: The intellectual nature of the audio/visual symbol chair is not the same as the physical nature of the object upon which its intellectual nature depends. Chair is merely the audio/visual symbol purposefully created to denote the physical existence of a specific real object. Chair is rational because it denotes physical reality. Its definition describes what it is and how one is related to it. In other words, it is the definition of the audio/visual symbol chair that is its intellectual aspect. Again, chair is not intellectual, its definition is. There are audio/visual symbols such as large which are fully intellectual. These will be discussed later under the appropriate section.

For now, we must simply acknowledge that for others to understand what one is talking about requires that the concepts necessary for their understanding to take place must preexist in their mind. In this case: The concepts of large, orange, orangutan, riding, unicycle, outside, and room must preexist in their mind.

When this is the case, these concepts can be recalled by their mind and used to imagine (re-perceive) and thereby understand what their brain must become factually conscious of when it is taken outside the room to validate whether what one is saying is rational—whether it was constructed from what one’s brain sensually knows to be the case.

The other’s mind compares what it's brain has become factually conscious of with that which it has imagined (re-perceived) it's brain must sensually observe. When these agree—when the factual nature of brain consciousness agrees with the abstract nature of that which its mind has imagined—then that other’s mind has validated that one’s claim was rationally constructed.

Understanding the conceptual structure of intelligence is a prerequisite of one's mind being able to use it's intelligence to formulate a reason based explanation.

Explain
For others to explain what one is talking about requires that their mind is able to think about, and from there, to understand what that requires of it.

Their mind must think about, and be able to explain to another, the requirement that the concepts necessary for the other's understanding to take place must preexist within their mind. They must be able to explain that when this is the case, then the other's mind is able to imagine what it is one is talking about.

Their mind must think about, and be able to explain to another, the requirement that for the other to validate whether what one is saying is rational,\; what one is claiming to be the case must actually physically be the case. They must be able to explain to the other that when this is the case, then the other's brain is also to factually know what it is one is talking about and thereby validate one’s claim as rational.

Their mind must think about, and be able to explain to another, the requirement that for the other to also sensually know what one knows requires that their brain is also being sensually stimulated by what one’s own brain sensually knows is the case.

Since I will expect you, when you finish reading this blog, to be able to explain why your mind creates the sound visually symbolized as God to others, then I must cause your brain to have a godly experience, or I must cause your mind to recall a previous godly experience.

The necessitated rational thinking is your responsibility.

I cannot cause you to think rationally and thereby learn how to explain God or anything else.

The Evolution of Language

When we speak to others there are four alternatives
as to how that can, and does, take place.
*************************************************************************

Real Communication
Alternative-1 in the figure above is the real alternative.
The real alternative involves the conscious state of existence. This is where real things are said to exist as physical objects.
Under the real alternative the real existence of physical objects is considered absolute. 
Under the real alternative the absolute nature of physical objects is sensually known to exist. This is why this alternative is often called the objective alternative.


Insane Ranting
Alternative-2 in the figure above is the insane alternative.
The insane alternative involves the schizophrenic state of existence. This is where things are said to exist as a no-thing.
Under the insane alternative the schizophrenic existence of a no-thing is considered demonic. This is where the demonic existence of an insane no-thing is considered to be evidence of a serious mental condition.
Under the insane alternative the demonic existence of an insane no-thing is hallucinated into existence. This is why this alternative is often called the emotional alternative.


Religious Edicts
Alternative-3 in the figure above is the religious alternative.
The religious alternative involves the spiritual state of existence. This is where the existence of religious no-things are said to exist dogmatically.
Under the religious alternative the dogmatic existence of spiritual no-things is believed into existence. 
Under the religious alternative the dogmatic nature of no-things is simply accepted to be that which other's have claimed it to be. This is why this alternative is often called the supernatural alternative.


Rational Understanding
Alternative-4 in the figure above is the rational alternative.
The rational alternative involves the reasoned state of existence. This is where the sensually known existence of thing's is abstracted into ideas.
Under the rational alternative the abstracted nature of ideas is conceptualized into the human mind as the terms of the human language called words and concepts; necessarily including their definitions.
Under the rational alternative the defined nature of ideas is considered to be the purposeful construction of intelligence. 
It is under the rational alternative that intelligence is understood to be nothing more, or less, than reality conceptualized into terms and their definitions. 
That is why this alternative is often called the scientific alternative.


To this point, we have fairly successfully tracked
The Evolution of Language

Notice how we have moved from the symbolic nature of animal communication through the fearful nature of insane rants and through the demanding nature of religious edicts to now end up at the meaningful nature of human intelligence.


                                                                                                                                          

Re-Examining the Four Alternatives to gain further understanding of how the human mind works.  



Under the REAL Alternative
Non-human animals (the beasts) purposefully create sounds to symbolize the physical existence of that which their brain has consciously imaged the factual nature of. Beasts communicate that which their brain has factually imaged by creating a specific sound to symbolize it's effect on and within their brain. To humans, most beastly sound seems noisy. It seems noisy only because humans do not understand why it is being created.
Oftentimes, a human baby will make sounds that seem noisy for the very reason most beastly sound seems noisy.


Under the INSANE Alternative 
Insane humans use sound in an effort to reveal the existence of that which has no relationship with or to physical nature. Although the sounds of insanity may seem familiar, they lack a real application or rational meaning. This is because there seems to be no known purpose or identifiable reason for their creation. It is as if the sounds occur in a manner similar to the noise resulting from nature interacting with nature at the inanimate level.
The insane do, of course, have a reason for creating human-like sound. It is the insane nature of their demons. But since the actual mental existence of these insane demons cannot be verified, their use of human sound seems noisy—that is, without a real cause or rational purpose.


Under the RELIGIOUS Alternative
Religious humans also make human sounds in an attempt to explain the existence of that which has no relationship to or within reality. The religious are attempting to explain the sounds resulting from their acceptance of the claims of their trusted 'intellectual' sources. However, since these claims have no known source, religious persons are considered to be spiritually insane rather than mentally insane. Spiritual insanity is insanity as a result of volitional belief rather than by some sort of non-volitional mental impairment.
The religious attempt to explain why it’s okay for the sounds they use to exist absent a known cause or rational purpose. Unlike the insane, religious persons have no known or knowable reason for why their sounds exist—and that does not seem to bother them in the least. This is because they have their God on their side. Their God takes the brunt of their insane beliefs, permitting them to avoid having to explain the absurdity of their claimed supernatural, spiritual, and/or mystical existence and/or cause.
The religious, of course, deny their close link with insanity. But notice—absent a link with reality, they are left with nothing to explain. If a no-thing actually did exist, what could be said about it? Nothing! Again notice: The religious have been trying to, and continue to try to, explain the existence of a no-thing. It is as if they are insanely screaming into the darkness of no-place.
This is evidence of mental illness. Whether purposeful or not, it is still evidence of mental illness. Mental illness purposefully imposed on oneself is mental illness nonetheless.


Under the RATIONAL Alternative
Rational humans create language as an epistemological tool—a tool to explain reality, necessarily including the reality of happy human existence right here on earth. Knowing what one is talking about takes place in reality, explaining what one understands about that takes place in intelligence.

The Evolution of Explanation



When explaining the nature of human nature to another,
the same four alternatives apply, but with added features.
 ***************************************************


Real Sensing
Under the real alternative, the absolute nature of physical objects is sensually known to exist. It is under this alternative that we discuss how all high-functioning animal brains operate. All high-functioning brains—necessarily including the human brain—have five sense organs extending from them.

This is how they sensually know that the absolute nature of physical existence actually does exist. It's physical existence is sensed; i.e., it's physical existence is made sense of.

Insane Appearance
Under the insane alternative, the mental existence of demonic no-things just seems to appear as if from nowhere. Rather than being sensually known to exist, as is the case under the real alternative, the insane appearance of demotic no-things is hallucinated into existence.

To an insane-functioning brain, the hallucinated nature of demons seems to be equivalent to the true nature of conscious brain imaging. Where the true nature of a brain image can be traced to that which the brain sensually knows to exist, the hallucinated nature of mental demons has no known source, cause or reason for existing.

The hallucinated nature of mental demons is a natural result of a brain that is deranged, meaning electrochemically imbalanced or physiologically damaged. 

Religious Acceptance
Under the religious alternative, the absurd [as opposed to the insane] nature of dogmatic no-things is just simply accepted to be that which others have stated they believe it to be.

This premise necessarily requires the associated premise, that the consequence experienced as a direct result of acting based on one’s dogmatically stated belief must also be accepted.

Rational Creation
Under the rational alternative, the intellectual nature of ideas is created. It is created from that which is rationally understood to be the case about that which is sensually known to be the case. This premise necessarily invokes the associated premise stating that one must understand the consequence resulting from acting based on what one understands to be the case prior to initiating the actions required to bring that understood consequence into reality. 

Unlike sensually knowing that reality exists, which only involves a brain and is therefore discussed under the real alternative; creating intelligence also requires a rational functioning mind; i.e., a reasoning mind. Note that it is not until we get to this alternative that we can discuss that human mind function called reasoning. 

It is the reasoning function of the human mind that is ultimately responsible for the ability of humans to understand cause-and-effect relationships and to conceptualize terms symbolizing that understanding. And it is this conceptualizing ability that is the reason for why only humans have been able to move themselves from living in caves to living in luxury.


=========================================
Re-Examining the REAL alternative
=========================================

Knowledge
It is only under the real alternative that we can begin to talk about what the source of knowledge is. Ultimately the source of knowledge exists as being the existence of the absolute nature of the objects of physical reality including the physical existence of the human head and it's contents.  

When a brain sensually knows that a real something exists it is the existence of the absolute nature of it's physical existence that is automatically transmitted into the brain for further processing. 

A definition of 'sensual knowing' which is worth noting: 


"Knowing is that automatically occurring sensual event which takes place between two real objects when at least one of these real objects is a brain." 


The objects of reality exist physically, but their 'sensually-known' existence exists as an electrochemical change to and within a brain's physical structure. Evidence of that electrochemical change is called a brain-image. The automatically occurring brain function responsible for creating  brain-images from that which it sensually knows to exist is called brain-consciousness. To the human brain's mind function it is the 'conscious-existence' of the brain-image that exists as being the knowledge it requires for it's intellectual development and growth. Therefore, and again; to the human brain's mind function, it is the existence of the absolute nature of the physical existence of the objects of reality that is considered to be the SOURCE of the knowledge required for it's intellectual development and growth. The source of knowledge is not what the object is, but rather that the existence of the absolute nature of it's physical existence does exist as whatever it is. 

For ones brain to acquire knowledge, then, only requires it to sensually know that a real physical something exists. And yes! this does require that all animal brains do acquire the knowledge necessary for their intellectual development and growth. However! It is only the human brain that has demonstrated a properly functioning mind (i.e., a reasoning mind) and it is therefore only the human brain's mind function which is capable of creating intelligence. 


Note that it is impossible to acquire knowledge from, or about, nothing at all. That requires belief. And yes it is also true that the human brain has demonstrated a belief; or a believing, function. 



Keep This in Mind 
Since the human brain's mind function takes place entirely within the human head; it then, cannot sensually know (and therefore does not sensually know) that an object in physical reality exists. In other words: The direct resource required for the reasoning function of the human mind to proceed is not what it's brain sensually knows to exist. What happens is that the mind function of the human brain becomes perceptually aware of the sensual influence of the source of knowledge on it's human brain called a brain-image. 

The consciousness function of the human brain automatically presents that which it sensually knows to be the case to its mind function in the form of physiological and electrochemical changes called brain-images. When the sensual event ceases to exist the resulting brain image also ceases to exist. Any remaining physiological and/or electrochemical change is re-termed from image into memory. 


Fact
A brain-image can exist for only as long as an object in reality is sensually stimulating a brain. It is the existence of the sensually-potent physiological and electrochemical interference existing between the atoms of the object and the atoms of the brain that is called fact It is called fact simply because it does ; i.e., it factually, exists. Please continue to remember that the physical and electrical nature of the atomic interference is-not 'known' to exist by the human brain's mind function. Eventually: It is understood to exist by that human brain's mind function. 

Sensual brain knowing is the prerequisite of perceptual mind understanding. Think of it in this way: When the human brain's consciousness creates an image of that which is factually stimulating it; it's mind function understands that there must be a reason for why the factual nature of the brain image exists. In other words: the existence of the sensually-potent atomic interference is called fact by that brain's mind function because it's real existence does; in fact, existFact is an idea created by the brain's mind function to further it's intellectual development and growth. Fact idealizes what a brain knows to exist into what it's mind understands about why it's brain knows what it knows. 

The human mind can perceive the factual nature of a brain-image only during that time when it's brain is consciously imaging what it sensually knows to exist. To test this premise: Look at an object and then close your eyes. You now understand this premise. The source of the knowledge required for your brain's mind function to understand what the object is, is no longer factually available to it. This test verifies that the source of the knowledge necessary for your mind to understand what the nature of the object is and what your relationship to and with it is, is possessed by the object. Your brain may remember its sensual experience with that object, but that is not the same as it's mind function being actively presented with the source of the knowledge it requires for it's own intellectual development and growth. 

Truth
Follow this logic: Because the objects of reality exist in an absolute sense, then, their brain-images are considered to be a true mental representation of their physical existence. 

Any statement derived from what is true is called a - truth. Since a brain's mind function cannot know [and therefore does not know] anything at all; then it's only recourse is to try and understand what it's brain does know. The mind function responsible for understanding the true nature of a brain-image is called reason. Truth's are-not based on what a brain sensually knows to be the case: They are based on what it's mind function understands about what is being factually presented to it in the form of a brain-image. 

In other words: Truth's explain what is understood about physical reality. When a mind explains what is known the result is called a truth

Notice how a truth explains what is rationally understood rather than what is sensually known. A truth reveals the absolute nature of the source of the knowledge which a brain has consciously imaged the factual nature of. A truth cannot be set-aside by belief. When a truth is formulated any and all previous beliefs just simply disappear from lack of interest. Importantly; a belief cannot be destroyed, it can only be ignored. It will eventually disappear from human cognition. 

Again and again: Whenever one changes the focus of one’s interest, the terms one uses to explain that new interest must also change. Otherwise, others will become confused as to what it is one is talking about.

Case in point:
  1. When the focus of our interest is on the inanimate objects of physical reality, we say the relationship between them is electrochemical—that it is a naturally occurring electrochemical interaction, or chemical reaction. 
  2. When the focus of our interest changes to also include an animate object of reality, we say the relationship between them is sensual, or that it is representative of a naturally occurring sensual stimulation of a living something.
  3. When the focus of our interest changes to now include a brain, we say the sensual stimulation is known to exist. 
  4. When the focus of our interest again changes to now include a mind we say that the reason for the existence of the sensually known electrochemical stimulation is understood. 
Note that in each of the 4-cases, the fundamentals of the relationships are electrochemical. But since the conditions being discussed are so vastly different this alone requires us to change the terms we use to discuss them. We do this to avoid becoming confused as to what it is we are specifically talking about.



============================================
Re-Examining the INSANE alternative
============================================

Aberration
Under the insane alternative, the equivalent to the factual nature of a brain-image is the insane nature of a mental-aberration. Where a brain-image presents as being the sensually-known existence of the absolute nature of physical reality, a mental aberration presents as being the demonically-known existence of nothing at all. 

Notice that we cannot properly use the term 'known' when it is preceded by any form of the term demon. The term replacing sensual knowing is 'mental insanity'. Therefore: we transition from sensual knowing to mental insanity when discussing demonic aberrations. 

A demonic aberration is a naturally occurring resultant of the deranged actions of a damaged brain. The deranged existence of demons within a brain is hallucinated into existence rather than being imaged into existence by normal brain consciousness. In other words, hallucinatory demonizing is the insane contrary of conscious imaging. 

Conscious brain-imaging is a naturally occurring result of the automatically occurring electrochemical operations of a properly operating brain. Conscious brain imaging can occur only when an object of reality is within the sensual range of that brain's sense organ extensions. That object’s brain-image is conscious evidence of the absolute nature of the existence of it's physical existence. But notice—it is also conscious evidence of the absolute nature of the existence of that brain’s physical existence as well.

Since a demonic aberration is hallucinated into existence, then, the cause of it's existence is not available for scrutiny by the brains of others. In other words, the non-real (insane or demonic) existence of a mental aberration (a demon) cannot be validated. It is as if a demonic no-thing actually does exist as a real physical something that does not actually exist. This contradiction is so bizarre its existence is considered evidence of a serious mental illness. This is why this alternative is often called the emotional alternative.

Again: Demotic schizophrenia is the deluded contrary of conscious brain imaging. To be schizophrenic is to not understand the cause of one’s mental delusions. Therefore, schizophrenia can be (and nearly always is) a very scary mental condition. 



================================================
Re-Examining the RELIGIOUS alternative
=================================================

Faith
Under the religious alternative, is where we talk about faith. Like schizophrenia, faith can also be considered evidence of abnormal mental functioning. And, like schizophrenia, faith is also a fear based mental operation. For example, “If you don’t behave as God says, you are going to go to hell.”

Belief
Unlike schizophrenia, which is the non-volitional [i.e., hallucinatory] creation of mental demons, faith is a fully volitional action of religious acceptance. In other words: To be considered religious one must unconditionally accept the dogmatic claims of one’s trusted intellectual advisers. Fundamentally, their claims are based on whatever it is their mind is capable of believing with believing defined as being a religious form of demonic hallucination. Religion demands that one simply accept the dogmatically stated claims [the beliefs] of ones trusted religious advisers as they continue to attempt to convince one’s mind that their beliefs are direct resultants of the actual spoken words of their deity God. 

Acceptance
Where demonic schizophrenia is considered to be a serious brain malfunction, volitional religious belief is considered to be that spiritually based brain function called acceptance. To a religious mind the mystical, magical, supernatural basis of religious belief supersedes the absolute physical basis of human intelligence. The influence of religious belief on one’s thoughts, and thereby on one’s actions, cannot be predicted because [like demotic hallucination] it has no known or verifiable foundation. Since the belief basis of religious acceptance is not founded on known and explained cause and effect relationships, then, religious acceptance actually interferes with ones intellectual development and growth.

How else is one to explain why some people purposefully blow themselves up? These people believe they are acting in a proper human way. That is why they do that. They can and do understand what the actual physical consequence to their living person is going to be. Yet they do it anyway. Why? Because the have accepted the believe that there is going to be a second mystical, spiritual, magical, supernaturally based consequence following the first! Otherwise, they have no reason or purpose for blowing themselves up. From where did they get this absurd notion? They got it from their trusted religious advisers! They got their information as to what proper human behavior is and requires of them from the same kinds of people you may be getting your information from.

Faithful acceptance is that mental condition where one simply believes that others know what it is they are talking about. As such, acceptingbelief [religious or otherwise] is not a means of acquiring knowledge. It is the means or cause of becoming and/or remaining ignorant. The faithful are ignorant of that which is a requirement for human's to achieve happiness right here on earth. 

The faithful do not and cannot become faithful by thinking about that which they know to be the case. As a matter of fact; under the religious alternative, thinking is considered a blasphemous mental action. Believing (or at least faking to be a believer and accepting the associated consequence) is a requirement of staying alive in many cultures dominated by religious theology.

The faithful are taught from very early childhood to simply accept the beliefs of their trusted religious advisers. In most cases, this includes their parents. Religious people simply accept whatever their trusted religious advisers say is the case, under any condition and all circumstance. One hopes their religious advisers know what it is they are talking about, but they do not. Their advise is of a mystical nature [as opposed to a insane nature], and is recorded within their texts of religious dogma.

Dogmatically recorded belief, by definition, does not relate to reality. It has no relationship to or with the source of knowledge. The recorded dogma of any faith exists by result of the spiritual operations of mystically focused minds. Religious dogma can only exist by result of those insane few who have been able to transition the demons of their hallucinations into the angels of their religion. 

A religious person can be expected to do and/or say anything to promote, expand, and/or force their accepted belief's into the mind's of non-believers. They can also be expected to be equally willing to accept whatever the consequence of acting in accordance with whatever their stated belief requires of them. This necessarily includes causing the death of those who refuse to be religiously "conditioned" by their dogmatic claims of intellectual superiority. 


===============================================
Re-Examining the RATIONAL alternative
===============================================

Explanation
It isn’t until we again reach the rational alternative, that we can explain the intellectual nature of human nature and that upon which its happy existence depends. Fundamentally it depends on understanding what the consequences of ones behavior will be prior to initiating the virtue which will bring that understood consequence into reality. 

It is important to realize that an explanation is equally valid for every person who has ever lived at any time in the past, for every person who now lives regardless of their personal conditions or circumstances; and for every person who will ever live at any time in the future, anywhere in the entire physical universe.

This is because an explanation is based in, and on, what is sensually known about the existence of  absolute nature of physical reality; i.e., it is based on what you, and I, and they sensually know by to be the case. It is based on understanding clause and effect relationships and then only doing that which will result in a beneficial; i.e., a happy, consequence. It is based on the sensually known [and eventually] intellectually understood source of knowledge. 

Under the rational alternative the information used to formulate an explanation is held conceptually. It is held within human conceptual intelligence (there simply is no other kind!). Rather than being automatically known to exist, as is the case with the source of knowledge; conceptual intelligence is purposefully created by a rational functioning mind; i.e., by a reasoning mind; i.e., by a thinking mind. But, recall, it is created from that which a properly functioning brain sensually knows to be the case. An explanation; then, reveals the source of the knowledge upon which it's validity depends. 

Case in point: Recall when I was explaining my daughter’s mental condition described as severe mental impairment. Although her mind functioned in a rational manner, it was not able to efficiently conceptualize what it knew to factually be the case into intelligence. Her conceptual mind functioned at less than 30 percent efficiency even though her conscious brain functioned 100 percent rationally.



Conceptualization
The evidence proving one’s brain is presenting the source of knowledge to it's mind function for processing into intelligence is called a brain-image. Alternately, a brain-image is conscious evidence of the factual influence of the source of knowledge on a human brain. It is impossible for a brain to be exposed to the source of knowledge in the absence of the absolute nature of physical reality. 

The source of knowledge cannot be physically moved into, or somehow physically relocated into, one’s brain. One’s brain can only become factually conscious of the sensual influence of the source of knowledge on it. Knowledge; itself, is said to exist as an image within one's brain. Knowledge exists as a consciously imaged physiological and electrochemical change to and within the chemical, electrical, and physical structure of one’s brain. Recalling that what a brain becomes conscious of is the factual influence of the source of knowledge on it. It is only after the human brain's consciousness function creates a fact based image that it can be claimed that knowledge is now available to it's mind function for further processing into intelligence. Where the human brain senses the absolute nature of the physical existence of objects; it's mind function perceives the resulting image to be the knowledge required to formulate a reason based explanation. One cannot separate human brain consciousness from it's rational mind function without experiencing catastrophic consequences; i,e. without experiencing religious consequences. 

Again: When we change the focus of our discussion we MUST change the terms we use.

What a brain becomes conscious of is the naturally occurring electrochemical interference occurring between it's atoms and the atom's of the objects of physical reality. What that same human brain's mind function becomes perceptually aware of is the brain-image resulting naturally from that same electrochemical interference. The physical existence of objects is absolute, the sensual influence of objects on a brain is fact, and the conscious existence of fact is knowledge. 

It is impossible to create intelligence in the absence of knowledge; i.e., in the absence of knowing what it is that one is talking about.

The source of knowledge is the existence of the absolute nature of physical existence. When the source of knowledge comes within the sensual range of one’s brain, that causes an electrochemical change to occur to and within one’s brain. When one’s brain becomes conscious of that electrochemical change the consciousness function of one’s brain creates a fact based image of that which is responsible for causing the initial electrochemical change to occur. 

The source of knowledge does-not exist physically, it exists intellectually. The source of knowledge is not WHAT physical reality is, but is instead THAT it's physical existence exists as whatever it is. Since the source of knowledge only exists intellectually; then, it's existence cannot be known to exist, it can only be understood to exist. 

This is why a demonic hallucination is so very disruptive to a person suffering from this disease. It is impossible to behave properly when attempting to use a demonic hallucination as the source of ones knowledge. 

This is also why religious acceptance is so very disrupting to a person who believes that other's have already discovered the truth and all they now need do is simply follow their instructions no matter the absurdity of the path or the insanity of the resulting consequences.

Demon
Recalling that the source of the materials a brain uses to construct the factual nature of its brain-images is not the objects of physical reality; it is the factual influence of those objects on it. Now note this very important distinction. When a brain becomes conscious, what it becomes conscious of is fact. Since a brain cannot sense the existence of  no-thing; then, it cannot become factually conscious of a no-thing. When a brain-image seems to exist but there is no factual cause of it this is called an hallucination and the resulting brain-entity [not brain-image] is re-termed to become a brain-demon. A brain-demon is an insanely formed brain existent rather than a consciously formed brain existent. Conscious brain functioning is proper. Demonic brain functioning is not proper—it is insane. 

A beastly functioning brain believes its brain-image is a real physical something. But a rational functioning mind can understand that this is not the case. Note: Brains do believe, and minds can understand. The difference between brain-believing and mind-understanding is the difference between beast and human, between faith and intelligence.

Information
The factual nature of a brain-image exists as being the knowledge that brain's mind function perceives as consisting of the information which it requires to construct an idea. Brain consciousness creates images from what is factually knows to exist; it's mind function perceives those brain images to be the knowledge it requires to create intelligence. 

For example:
The total combined existence of what is sensually known to exist is called - reality; and the entities of reality are called objects; i.e., reality exists objectively.

The total combined existence of what is understood about reality is called - intelligence; and the entities of intelligence are called concepts; i.e., intelligence exists conceptually

Intelligence is nothing more (or less) than what is known about the objects of reality [including their relationships] conceptualized into the terms of human language, including their definitions. 


Identity
Again: When the mind function of the human brain becomes aware of a brain-image it perceives it's existence to consist of the information it requires for its intellectual development and growth. A discussion involving human brain functioning is focused on reacting to painful and pleasurable physical experiences, but a discussion involving its mind-function is focused on identifying their cause and effect relationships. It does this by thinking about the consequences resulting from it's brain's physical experiences with the objects of reality. When the mind understands the real nature of these experienced consequences it is said that it has identified their cause and effect relationships. Each cause and effect element of an experienced consequence obtains its own identity. It is the reasoned identification of these cause and effect relationships that is collected into a single entity called an idea. Identity is considered to be the mental conduit thru which fact-based information flows into one’s mind to be processed into the conceptual nature of one’s intelligence. 

Identity is the link between brain consciousness and mind perception, between brain knowing and mind understanding, between the real existence of the absolute nature of physical objects and the created existence of the abstract nature of their reasoned concepts.

When discussing reality, we are concerned with the absolute nature of the objects of physical reality. When discussing brain consciousness, we are concerned with the factual nature of brain images. When discussing mind awareness, we are concerned with the informational nature of knowledge. and when discussing reasoned understanding we are concerned with the conceptual nature of ideas. 

Where the human brain function proceeds automatically, it's reasoning mind function, called thinking, is fully volitional. One's mind must be (it can only be) purposefully engaged. And the purpose of volitionally engaging the thinking function of one's mind is to understand, and from that position, to explain the requirements of achieving human happiness right here on earth.


Ideas
It is the information of which knowledge consists that is abstracted from it to create ideas. And it is ideas that are conceptualized into intelligence. The function of the human mind that conceptualizes ideas into intelligence is called reason. Therein is what is called - reasoned intelligence. 

Where ideas consist of the information abstracted from knowledge, intelligence consists of the concepts which were created specifically to store that abstracted information within ones mind. Therefore: To be considered intellectual ones concepts must have a sensually known source. Ultimately concepts must have an absolute physical basis. To be considered intelligent one must be able to demonstrate the source of ones knowledge. One must be able to 'point' at reality and say "that is my source of knowledge." When this is the case, then, ones stated claim cannot be denied nor set aside because the source of the claim exists absolutely. 

Concepts
Concepts are the way the human mind stores the information it abstracts from knowledge. Conceptually held knowledge; then, denotes (or stands in the place of) the absolute nature of physical reality. With this being the case, and assuming normality in ones physical and intellectual development, the consequences one experiences from the use and application of ones concepts will be fully consistent with the requirements of achieving ones happiness right here on earth.

The mind of those people who are blowing themselves up is focused on a no-thing as if that is an actual something which does not actually exist. They deserve what they get - nothing.

Explanation
First we needed to resolve how sound symbols evolved into language. Now we can use that language to explain what an explanation is.

To explain something means to provide the source of ones knowledge. Which, in turn, requires knowing what it is one is talking about.

"Knowing is that automatically occurring sensual event which takes place between two real objects when at least one of these real objects is a brain."


An explanation cannot be different from what it is because it is derived from the absolute nature of physical reality. The oft-heard mantra “Let’s just agree to disagree” is an absurdity. The only position more absurd is the unconditional acceptance of the religious claim that a no-thing [insert deity God] is a something that does not exist in a knowable way; that is, it does not (is not sensually know to) physically exist. Therefore: (whatever its existence is claimed to be) it must be (can only be) believed into existence. The only way the claimed existence of a deity God's demands can interfere with the reasoning function of one's mind, and thereby determine one’s actions, is if its non-existence is believed into existence. 

To explain something [anything] is to reveal one’s intelligence. An explanation involves demonstrating the absolute nature of that upon which its intellectual nature depends. To explain human happiness is to reveal the laws of nature governing of what a proper human existence consists and that upon which its 'continued' happy existence depends. Explaining the nature of human happiness is; by necessity, done outside the dogmatic boundaries enforced by religious believers.

Under certain circumstances explaining the true nature of human nature can be very dangerous. Some people get so upset they actually explode!
