A Theory of Consciousness

Summary

An examination of the underpinning of philosophical thought—consciousness—through a study of the physiology of the central nervous system.   Philosophy begins with an acknowledgment of consciousness as an internal experience. Many renowned thinkers—from Descartes (“I think, therefore I am”) to John Dewey and his theory of inquiry—assume without further ado that consciousness is necessary to experience.   Famous philosophies have been founded on the choice of a mode of thought and its consistent use. A Theory of Consciousness maintains that there are a number of different types of thinking which lead to a variety of logical results; that everyone is capable of following these differing schools of thought, though usually favoring by habit one more than another; and that everyone trusts the results of a particular coordination while employing it and often while following it in the expression of another thinker.   Author Arnold Schultz maintains that before these various modes of thought can be considered, it is necessary to explain the phenomenon of consciousness in terms of the energies of the central nervous system. In this work, Schultz covers such subjects as: direct versus reflective consciousness, bodily awareness, logic and mathematics, kinesthetic and ontic sensations, affectation, passive and active referral, and more.

    My Prodigal Son and Our Journey Together 
    This book was written by the father of his son, Michael, who earnestly tried but failed to beat alcohol and drug addiction. It is narrated by his father describing the difficult journey his son chose and one that he did not take alone. His family was right there with him supporting and loving him wherever he was on his journey, no matter how difficult it was. The best way to describe the spirit and purpose of this book is to hear from both the father and son below.From Dad 
    “I experienced a loss that I still cannot come to terms with. My beautiful son, Michael, died three years ago. Prior to his tragic ending, he tried everything to break away from his addictions of alcohol and drugs, but nothing worked.  
     He was loved by many and befriended others suffering from the same disease as he did. His message to them is the same one he is sending through this book. In his very own words, he described his journey as follows…”From his Son Michael 
    “Dad, I never knew my life would get to this point. I am slowly losing everything due to something I thought I could never become. My denial has led me to death’s door on so many occasions it’s just a matter of time." 
                                                                                                                  *  *  *  *  * 
    This book is a gift from Michael’s father to his son. As you will hear, Michael has been urging his dad through dreams, songs, and other means to write this book-His book as a cautionary tale to those who are flirting with alcohol and drugs-so as to give them a wakeup call what will be in store from them if they foolishly take the same fatal journey he so unwittingly travelled.

    A guide of alternatives to traditional funerals, commemorating lost loved ones in a meaningful, personal way.   Today, many people are forgoing the trappings and timeworn rituals of typical funerals, and are instead opting to celebrate their loved ones’ lives. With careful planning, services like these can truly honor the person who has died—and both comfort and uplift those who attend.  Celebrating a Life offers sensitive guidance on every detail—venue, food and drink, music, flowers, eulogy, program, mementoes—all with the aim of making sure the memorial service’s honoree is remembered just as he or she would have wished. Checklists and an extensive resource directory provide much-needed help to those who have very little time to make arrangements. As author Faith Moore says, this book is not about regrets, but about reimagining how we say good-bye.   “In a caring, practical, and authoritative way, Faith Moore tackles a very difficult topic. Her direct and warm advice is a fabulous resource. This book is a must-read for anyone who will face the inevitability of honoring and celebrating the life of a deceased love one.” —Peggy Post, director of the Emily Post Institute and author of Emily Post’s Etiquette, 17th Edition

    Jabbed - How the Vaccine...

    “A brilliant book on the sordid history of infectious disease and vaccines . . . A must-read for all ages.” —Shiv Chopra, DVM, PhD, former senior scientific advisor on vaccinations for Health Canada 
     
    Jabbed demonstrates that the medical procedure hailed as the greatest medical advancement in history—vaccines—is a racket run by criminals and gullible believers who have replaced vaccine science with the religion of vaccinology. Vaccine marketers teach believers to fear, shame, and scapegoat anyone foolish enough to question the sanctity of vaccines. Such an environment is not the domain of science; rather it’s the breeding ground of tyranny. 
     
    Jabbed exposes this tyranny. From polio and smallpox to medical journals, medical curricula, congressional hearings, regulatory policies, White House statements, and executive orders, Jabbed shines light on the dark underbelly of Big Pharma, Big Medicine, and Big Government. 
     
    A vaccine informed public is the only thing that will have the power to stop vaccine industry sociopaths and to hold them accountable for their crimes. 
     
    Jabbed informs and immunizes against three of the most dangerous epidemics in history: tyranny, greed, and corruption. Once immunized, the growing vaccine-informed community will have the power to stand up and dismantle the vaccine paradigm and program and to punish the perpetrators of what may well be the greatest medical fraud ever perpetrated on the human race: vaccines.
