Pain Per Se (In Itself) Is Irrelevant

“People do not get angry over (or experience other emotion because of) pain, though they may believe that is the case.  People only get angry over idea related to pain.  For example, people may get angry over the idea that pain is unjust or they may get angry over the idea that pain is cruel or they may get angry over the idea that pain is too severe.  So, there is not, was not, and cannot be anger over human suffering per se (in itself).  However, the mind may, in effect (not actually), merge idea and perception so that it seems that the pain itself is the cause of the anger.  Proof of the independence of anger (and other emotion) from pain is found in the experiences, utterances, and writings of masochists, who enjoy their suffering.  Additional proof of the independence of anger (and other emotion) from pain is found in the experiences of military personnel, who endure hardships in preparation for military service.  Also, there are the hardships of athletic training endured by athletes.  These facts destroy the sometimes seemingly irrefutable ‘arguments of suffering’ proffered by atheists.  Finally, if a person is suffering severely, they are not seeking to express some motivation (emotion) to prove God is a monster; rather, they are seeking relief from their pain.”

Mind-Brain Relationships

“The mind cannot be damaged.  The brain can be damaged.  The brain is powerless to do anything to the mind.  The mind is powerless to do anything to the brain.  However, the brain is a virtual mediator between the mind and the world.  If the brain is injured, it, in effect, loses some ability to mediate.  This means the mind cannot get correct or fully correct input from the world and the mind cannot give correct or fully correct output to the world.  However, there is a healing system governing the brain that tends to correct this situation.  This healing system tends to restore a virtual backup of the brain.  My experience with brain injury patients proves this to be the case.  That is, they tend to normalize over time.  However, the virtual backup of the brain can, itself, be damaged.  In this case, restoration can only proceed so far.  However, it is possible for people to defy the odds and recover completely.  My experience with brain injury patients proves this to be the case.”

Psychocentrism, Supposed Infallibility of the Human Mind, and Mental Health Patients

“Atheists are psychocentric in their thinking.  They believe in the infallibility of the human mind.  Tell that to the millions of mental health patients.”

Dichotomists, Delusion, Mental, Physical, and Neiphynormal

“This post may blow your mind.  Prepare yourself.  A dichotomist is a person who has the delusion that everything is either mental or physical.  This is easily proven.  Consider…
