Thanks Melanie for the questions. One of these days I will get to them on a Monday. This prompt is another highlight of my week. Yippee!! And away we go …
What is knowledge? Why knowledge is power so said Francis Bacon in 1597.
How do you define consciousness (self awareness)? Knowing myself and what motivates my words and deeds.
Is it possible to prove that other people besides yourself have consciousness? Hmm you might be able to guess but you’d likely be wrong unless you’re a mind reader. Proving anything about another person is impossible imo.
Would you be able to tell if time had been altered in some way? I think so because time is a construct of man. My perception on time is my reality. My brain is what alters how I perceive time. Doesn’t that mean I could always tell if time was altered in some way?
Do you like potato chips (they’re called ‘crisps’ in Europe I believe)? That would be a YES!!!! “Betcha Can’t Eat Just One” according to the Lays potato chip people. In my case, they are correct! My current favorite is barbeque kettle chips if I’m going for convenience off the shelf but no one made better potato chips than my daddy. Navy cook extraordinaire. I can still see his prep station – cutting board, knife and sharpener, washed potatoes, skins still on. Seasoning salt, garlic powder, pepper. Big pot of oil and the metal fry basket. Before he started anything, he prepped like he was still head cook at Frank’s restaurant in Schulenburg. He also always had a sink of hot soapy water ready to go so he could clean as he went. Watching him was like watching a maestro conduct a symphony. Aww now I am happy crying.
