Nowadays more than ever, we have to deal with too many things in our lives. Life is kind of more complicated than it was years ago. One thing i know for sure, is that the technology we open our arms for, is not all that good for our minds.

Apps, Apps, & more apps. No, no, and then no.

Pleeeeeese think before downloading an app on your cell phone. Do not just give up, and do every single suggestion that cell phone is giving you. This is not healthy at all neither for your mind nor for your life.

Image result for i don't need appsSome apps are good, useful, and profitable for mankind, but not all of them, very few of them to be more accurate. I will give you an example. You have an email, and you can see your emails on your cell phone. Why do you need an app to do this?

Remember, before you hit the button to install a new app to your poor cell phone, which is choking from all these crazy apps :mrgreen:

That being said, let’s move to something more cheerful. What is more cheerful than to hear about new item?

The new item we have for you today, is a new thought, or a kind of an extension for a daring thinking about our brains, our selfs, or our energy.

First, does the self exist in reality?


The answer depends on what you mean by self and on the expert with whom you speak. Some philosophers suggest there is no such thing as a self, while others consider a self to be a collection of experiences, memories and personality traits. Still others suggest persisting patterns of information represent the self. And while these definitions require a brain, some people suggest the self transcends the physical realm and instead is or involves some sort of nonphysical, spiritual or cosmic consciousness.

Peter Van Inwagen (Philosopher with University of Notre Dame) contrasts “myself” & “my self”. Of course it is so confusing, but this is always the case with philosophy. It’s enjoyable if you master the rules.

“When I talk about ‘myself,’ ‘myself’ is just me,” he says. “I already have the words ‘I’ and ‘me.’ Why do I need this additional word, ‘self’? Is there this thing that isn’t me but is ‘my self’? If not, why not just call it ‘me’?”

Another philosopher, Galen Strawson, at the University of Texas at Austin constructs two categories: “metaphysical selves: what selves are, how long they last,” and “experiential selves: how long you feel they last.”

But the question which everyone is trying to find an answer for is that “Is it possible after death, to transfer the “self” from one dead body (coz the brain is dead) into another body, who is supposedly alive but may be in a comma for example?” And other similar situations I guess 😀

Can the self survive? And could your self be uploaded into another brain, even a nonbiological one? This is the big question that many thinkers and scientists are trying to answer. Although it is one kind of revolutionary thought, but if it happened, it would be something more than unbelievable to occur.

Let’s talk more after this break. Until then, here’s our hugs & kisses ❤
