<< If materialism reduces our brains to mere neurons, how do we define human consciousness? >> The current state of modern philosophy is often confused with vagueness. Actually, the scientific discoveries that have changed our lives over the last century have explicitly deviated from the frame of modern philosophy since the birth of the neo-positivism, though. The neo-positivism wave in philosophy has nothing in parallel with "practical science", rather than delving into the meaning of "experience" and "logic", all along. Modern philosophy surely had not influenced on the significant discoveries in science. Einstein's relatively theory (private), quantum theory, unified field theory, the theory of Weak Electro magnetic fields, the discovery of the DNA structure and the new synthesis in biology, for exampl. In addition, the argument between the EPR interpretation versus the Copenhagen interpretation of the quantum theory, at the same time has nothing in correlation with the materialism and the neo-positivism wave in philosophy. There are certain phenomenons I have witnessed, such as, when people are able to forecast exactly if it will be raining in the next few hours or even a day before. Also, rare people with high sensorial energy that able to feel or sense others from long distance, as the same time. To my humble knowledge, these phenomenons are neither metaphysics nor objective. However, there are similarities that exist between the Aspect's experience in quantum theory of a separated pair of photons which appears to instantaneously cause effect on the other from long distance, faster than light mechanism, to the above description. Perhaps it must be the neurons, indeed!?
