Neural Correlates of Consciousness - The MIT Press-Unconscious Review

Neural Correlates of Consciousness - The MIT Press
Philosophers have, for thousands of years, from Socrates, to Bertrand Russel, to "name your favorite" debated and journaled "consciousness" of humans and machine.  Can physical states of the human brain, with its many folds, generate epistomology=my fav subject.  Speculation on my part-of my brain, I know which not.
for Hamlet, it was "to be or not to be" that was the question, his indecision led him to a death, not  quite honorable, yet the question was never answered. If he were here in body, "fat and scant of breath" with the requisite metabolic syndrome and a body mass of 30+, could or should he read this book. Maybe.

His poetry is notable for its use of formal language, as well as insights on topics of life using spiritual terms. Gibran's best-known work is The Prophet, a book composed of twenty-six poetic essays. The book became especially popular during the 1960s with the American counterculture and New Age movements. Since it was first published in 1923, The Prophet has never been out of print. Having been translated into more than twenty languages, it was one of the bestselling books of the twentieth century in the United States.

One of his most notable lines of poetry in the English-speaking world is from "Sand and Foam" (1926), which reads : "Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it so that the other half may reach you". This was plagiarised by John Lennon and placed, though in a slightly altered form, into the song Julia from The Beatles' 1968 album The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album).</span>                         <span property="dc:type" content="Text">             </object>    <div style="margin: 6px auto 3px auto; font-family: Helvetica,Arial,Sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px; line-height: normal; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; -x-system-font: none; display: block;">    <a href="http://www.scribd.com/upload" style="text-decoration: underline;">Publish at Scribd</a> or <a href="http://www.scribd.com/browse" style="text-decoration: underline;">explore</a> others:            <a href="http://www.scribd.com/explore/Books/Fiction" style="text-decoration: underline;">Fiction</a>              <a href="http://www.scribd.com/explore/Books/" style="text-decoration: underline;">Books</a>                  <a href="http://www.scribd.com/tag/love" style="text-decoration: underline;">love</a>              <a href="http://www.scribd.com/tag/poetry" style="text-decoration: underline;">poetry</a>          </div>

Susan Boyle's former vocal coach has warned the showbiz publicity machine could destroy the singer's career as fans, cybersquatters and big business cash in on her newfound fame.

The 48-year-old's stirring performance of I Dreamed A Dream on Britain's Got Talent TV show has clocked up more than 75 million views on video sharing website YouTube.

A 1999 charity album on which Boyle sings Cry Me A River has attracted bids of up to $2500 on eBay.

This would make an art lover cry. The damgage, divestation, the heartbreak of the hours of love and work that went into these pieces of irreplacable works. Sad.

TABS: a Metaphysical "Di Vinci" concept model

Everything in the multiverse, even branes, are egg,mobius-stip shaped. I would prefer a spiral for tabs. human eye seeks horizon, but metaphysically, and computers emulate higher levels (Plato: “as above so below” we need to think on more of an ancient traditional singularity. a conceptual artist. all of the suggestions I read are brilliant and creative. This is just a stab at “making the familiar strange; and the strange familiar” hopefully it will span some expansive spiritual visions.  thanks www.azarask.in

Obama allows unlimited travel to Cuba by relatives - Los Angeles Times
Josefina Vidal, head of the North American section of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, suggested it was the U.S. that is the odd man out. Shortly after Fidel Castro took power, Washington broke relations with Havana and persuaded most of the hemisphere to follow suit. Every country has since reversed itself, except the U.S.
