Imaginação: Muito importante, o que é, de onde vem…

Friday, October 4th, 2019

A imaginação é um fenômeno real que esta sempre se manifestando e afetando nossas vidas. Portanto precisamos tentar saber o que ela é, de fato, apesar de saber-mos ser isso quase impossível, pois ela é invisível, intocável, incontrolável. Mas creio que nada existe neste mundo que com o devido esforço consigamos conhecer por completo, então, mesmo começando tateando no escuro, temos que enfrentar a escuridão e tatear, esse fenômeno é real e nos afeta. Principalmente para os pais será muito mais importante saber algo sobre imaginação, o que passa no interior dos cérebros em formação dos seus filhos, para saber melhor orienta-los desde o berço, para serem mais bem sucedidos na vida. O ideal seria que os adultos já estivessem conscientes dos efeitos de suas próprias imaginações em suas vidas, os efeitos negativos, e tomarem o cuidado para não passarem estas suas imaginações para seus filhos.  Por isso fui a Internet procurar o que os estudiosos e as ciências humanas já aprenderam sobre a imaginação, quais as principais teorias, etc. E lendo uma descrição técnica obtida pela filmagem dos movimentos no cérebro quando indivíduos estão imaginando, minha própria imaginação veio a mente e comecei a imaginar uma cena a qual acho que sera uma boa alegoria para se entender a imaginação. Vou tentar:

Imagine-se passeando no meio de um monte de macacos num parque florestal cercado. Você observa que eles são demasiadamente ativos, agitados, e que seus movimentos são de dois tipos: um tipo de movimentos são meras macacadas, não conduzem a nada, o macaco corre, pula de galho em galho numa direção, chega num ponto, para, nada faz, se vira a correr em outra direção, para nada fazer. O conjunto todo daqueles movimentos parece um caos total. Outro tipo de movimentos fazem mais sentido logico, estes macacos se movem na direção de uma comida, procura um galho mais baixo quando quer descer, etc. Se você mentalmente separa os dois movimentos pelos grupos de macacos observados, você terá a impressão que os movimentos lógicos mostram, ao invés do caos, um principio de ordem.

Pois quando o cérebro humano esta se formando embrionariamente, os neurônios recém-formados se comportam da mesma maneira que os seus macacos no parque. Vamos ver como a Ciência ( link abaixo), explica isso:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brain )

“O cérebro se desenvolveu, desde animais inferiores, numa intrincada e orquestrada sequencia de estágios. Ele mudou de formas desde uma simples protuberância parecendo um pequeno tumor na ponta frontal de um feixe de nervos nos seus mais primitivos estados, como nas minhocas, para um complexo arranjo e ordenamento de diferentes áreas e conexões. Neurônios são  criados numa zona especial que contem células-tronco, e então imigram através dos tecidos primários para alcançarem suas definitivas posições. Uma vez que os neurônios tem se posicionado, um grosso cílio desabrocha e se torna longo, ao qual denominamos “axon”, e o cílio navega através do cérebro, se ramificando em vários galhos e se estendendo enquanto avançam, ate que alcançam seus alvos, que pode ser outro grupo ou região de neurônios, e assim formam as conexões sinápticas.

E aqui vem , na minha titubeante opinião, a parte mais importante para entender de onde veio a imaginação humana: ” Num certo numero de partes do sistema nervoso, neurônios e sinapses são produzidos em excessivo numero durante os estágios da formação, a produção de sinapses parece caótica. Mas em seguida vai ocorrendo uma ordenação, neurônios mais agitados são aquietados e se suas sinapses são desnecessárias que nada produzem de útil pra o cérebro, são inibidas ou ate eliminadas.”

Vamos voltar ao parque dos macacos. Enquanto você passeia e observa, entra no parque um grupo de adestradores dizendo que querem ordem entre os macacos. Carregam redes com as quais apanham os macacos agitados desordeiros, e trazem também bananas, dando-as como recompensa apenas aos mais calmos que se movimentam na direção de metas logicas. Agora você nota que a cena que vês é diferente da cena vista quando você entrou, o caos cedeu lugar a ordem. E’ a diferença que veria se pudesses entrar num cérebro infantil e no mesmo cérebro tornado adulto.

Voltemos ao nosso tópico, a imaginação. Quando a criança nasce, seu cérebro é o estado inicial do parque. Parece que a mente da criança tem miragens, pois ela corre numa direção, move um objeto, sem razão logica, depois muda ou joga o objeto. Nestas correrias cai, quebra objetos. Então vem os adultos reprimindo aqueles movimentos, como se os adultos fossem adestradores com redes de apanhar neurônios desordeiros e portando bananas ou elogios para recompensar neurônios que se movem com logicas.

Os adultos aqui representam o mundo real, os duros fatos da vida, que são incômodos, indesejáveis, mas não adianta lutar contra eles, porque caímos, porque quebramos nosso patrimônio, e se não disciplinar-mos nossos movimentos no sentido do trabalho construtivo, vamos morrer de fome, vamos ficar jogados ao sabor das intempéries, etc.

As miragens são tão ilógicas, tao fora da realidade, que ao contrario dos pensamentos normais que se tornam ordenados pela criação da linguagem, as miragens não tem uma ferramenta como a linguagem, o que conecta as miragens são fios virtuais que se desfazem quando afrontam a realidade. Dentre as miragens criadas pela mente as mais notáveis são as que produzem lendas, mitos, deuses imaginários, os quais são prosseguimentos dos fantasmas amigos imaginários que as crianças inventam para conversarem. E certas miragens são tão atraentes, produzem certos confortos e prazeres mentais que as crianças lutam contra os fatos para mante-las, muitas vezes continuam essa luta quando entram na vida adulta, e algumas ate morrem mantendo estas miragens.

Penso que, se certas miragens imaginativas habituais ( como por exemplo a imaginação de que somos heróis com poderes supernaturais atuando no mundo real para ser importante e mudar os fatos desagradáveis, ou que somos escolhidos enquanto os outros não são, por deuses amigos com poderes supernaturais que vão nos proteger se o teto da igreja durante a missa ruir), nos causam estados mentais agradáveis, realmente não faria mal mante-las, desde que sob certo controle e estado de vigilância, apenas para serem curtidas quando estamos bem acomodados em relativa segurança, mas afastadas assim que temos de levantar e enfrentar o mundo real. Muitos são pegos de surpresa em verdadeiras tragedias porque estavam com a cabeça no mundo da lua das miragens, e nem os seus poderes supernaturais, nem os amigos fantasmas com poderes supernaturais aparecem para salva-los. Como conseguir este controle, esta disciplina, de saber separar a hora da meditação agradável desapegada da realidade, da hora de estar no mundo real, é o que vamos procurar.

Outro fator não menos importante é o tal “imaginário social”. precisamos nos lembrar que a Humanidade é um fenômeno bastante recente no mundo, tendo em vista a escala cósmica do tempo. Em relação ao mundo universal a Humanidade surgiu nas ultimas horas. E Humanidade é uma auto-projeção mesclada de cada individuo humano, portanto as mentes individuais são mescladas e criam a mente social. Como a Humanidade nasceu muito recentemente, a mente social ainda esta na sua infância, o que nos poe uma pulga na orelha quando pensamos no tal “senso comum”, ou nas regras sociais. Pode ter certeza que são coisas infantis, carregadas de imaginação sem muita relação com a realidade do planeta, do mundo natural. Assim o amigo fantasma de cada criança se torna o amigo Deus de uma religião, com quem todos os fieis acreditam conversar. Talvez existam outras dimensões nos envolvendo, onde são possíveis existirem entidades supernaturais, quem pode saber? Mas o triste é assistir que mitos inventados com credulidade infantil como se fossem parte do mundo real por antigos analfabetos, perduram no imaginário social o qual funciona como feed-back, retroalimentando os cérebros de cada individuo da seita. os adultos humanos teriam que serem muito bem informados da realidade, da Historia, dos fenômenos naturais, para analisarem impessoalmente quais os efeitos do imaginário social sobre as vidas dos humanos, para separar o joio do trigo, e não passar os efeitos maléficos para seus filhos, os quais vão continuar sofrendo desses efeitos. Muitas vezes uma analise depurada de nossas opiniões mal informadas funcionam como estímulos aos macacos e neurônios que se movem sem metas praticas para sua melhor sobrevivência.

trecho traduzido da Wikipedia:

The brain develops in an intricately orchestrated sequence of stages.[60] It changes in shape from a simple swelling at the front of the nerve cord in the earliest embryonic stages, to a complex array of areas and connections. Neurons are created in special zones that contain stem cells, and then migrate through the tissue to reach their ultimate locations. Once neurons have positioned themselves, their axons sprout and navigate through the brain, branching and extending as they go, until the tips reach their targets and form synaptic connections. In a number of parts of the nervous system, neurons and synapses are produced in excessive numbers during the early stages, and then the unneeded ones are pruned away.

Debate between a Creationist, a Materialist, and the Matrix/DNA world view

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

I was in a debate in the Internet when I have an idea for explaining something of the Matrix/DNA world view in a different manner. It is interesting, so, I copied it here for thinking about tonight. What do you think?

luvdomus  – 4 hours ago – 8/9/17: (Materialist, atheist)
The ‘jump” of abiogensis was a series of very small steps over millions of years.
There was no origins of life, so, no jump of abiogenesis. Biological systems (aka life) were built by the building blocks of this galaxy, which worked as photons-genes and became the building blocks of DNA. All known properties of life were existing in less evolved state at this galaxy, by entropy its information fail to Earth surface, as the initial conditions. See at my avatar and website the face of LUCA ( the Last Universal Common Ancestor) the evolutionary link between inorganic and organic, but it never came to Earth, it is surrounding us in the sky.
Ok I described my theory. But you said “The ‘jump” of abiogenesis was a series of very small steps over millions of years”, in an affirmative way. You was not there, you have not watched it, so you need to advise that you have a theory, like I did it. Time and more data will solve which theory is the best.
+Luvdomus – Why do you believe it happened by small steps? Science has never shown life to come from non life in small steps or big steps ever. So why would you believe it?
Santana Garcia ( Materialist)
+Luvdomus – that’s because bacteria and viruses also play a roll in the complexity of life , this video did not get to that yet. Also 4 billion years of evolving matter to living things is hardly a jump. Do you really understand how long 4 billion years is ?
Smoothsay2 Smoothsay (creationist)+Santana – Do you really believe that chemicals could assemble themselves into DNA that is programmed to build cells, rna, cellular machinery, & self correcting rna polymerase transcription functions & reproduction systems? Rather a wild accident isn’t it 4 billion years or 100 billion years do you actually believe this would happen?

Smoothsay2 – Now, imagine this belief growing. Then they will write their sacred book. ” There was a talking rock radiating light that separated the waters of the Red sea and came to Prophet Darwin saying that…”

I suspects in this way were wrote the Kuran, the Bible, etc. and, do you believe that till today there are people believing in that?! But, for telling the thru, I found that Genesis is the correct scientific description of the events that brought life and the man to Earth. It is the right description of LUCA (the Last Universal Common Ancestor) and the events creating life here. If you see and understand how works the system called LUCA ( its face is at my avatar – the life cycle of any astronomic body like Earth, and the building blocks of galaxies), you will discover all Genesis’s symbols there: the system was a paradise for X and Y (Adam and Eve), in shape of an apple, with a systemic circuit in shape of a snake, the spiral galaxy seems a tree, etc. In fact, X convinced Y to eat the apple ( which means the selfish state of closed system). And attacked by entropy the system falls to planet’s surface, in shape of genes-photons, which guided the terrestrial atoms to build aminoacids, molecules, RNA, till the first cell, which is the exactly biological copy of our sinner ancestor… the Milk Way.
Genesis is all about metaphors describing the scientific complexity for lay man! But how any ancient man knew that? 2 theories: 1) our ancestor and those events are registered at our DNA ( the junk DNA) which are at the center of our neurons and altered mental states produces flashes from that memory. Since ancient man did not know nothing about astronomy, he found the way to explain it by metaphors. 2) Aliens were here and told it… I don’t see another alternative, since I can not believe that a God of a multiverse came here…

 Louis Charles Morelli – the problem with metaphorical ideas is they are subject to any kind of interpretation so you will always will be able to make them match with any scientific or metaphysical theory.

oz surveillance –  Ok, then, I will invite you to a challenge:

 Find the scientific theory that matches with the following:
1) We built this modern city where humans will live as a paradise. But like the Brave New World of Huxley and under the Big Brother, humans will be stupid and stagnating in this shape forever. Take the red pill if you want living here;
2) Outside there are those humans cities in state of chaos, lots of problems, misery, diseases, etc. But, those people will be opened to their evolution, they could reach the galaxies. Take the blue pill if you want that.
This was the exactly situation the author described with Eve offering the apple: eat the apple, the red pill, standing forever in this “jungle” paradise I built for us; do not eat the apple and we fall in chaos far away from here…
We found that the vital principle is encoded in a light wave, like that emitted after the Big Bang. The code worked matter and built the atom system, the star system, and when went to build the galactic system… matter was reaching its supreme goal, which is to be a closed system at eternal termodynamic equillibrium.
The code could doing a choice, unifying with matter and living that paradise; or fighting matter, suffering at chaos but keeping the state of opened system, opened to its own evolution. The red pill or the blue pill?
The code choose the paradise, from the Universe came the Clausius Law, the entropy that produces the death of any system. The code falls at planets, here we are. Please, find the scientific theory that matches this metaphora like the Matrix/DNA Theory – a merely philosophical naturalist theory, matched it… Good look…

Then, one day after this debate, I was searching the scientific news at Internet and found a great, spetacular news ( ” Bright flash of light marks incredible moment life begins”) that is just the confirmation of several theories I wrote in the debate. So, I went back writing this:
To everybody debating with me in this thread: please, see how and why the Matrix/DNA world view during the last 30 years has confirmed hundreds of its previsions. Two days ago I wrote here: ” We found that the vital principle is encoded in a light wave, like that emitted after the Big Bang”.
Today I am reading the news: ” Bright flash of light marks incredible moment life begins”. I have wrote here that in this Universe is occurring a natural genetic process of reproduction of the unknown thing that triggered the Big Bang as an act of fecundation.
And I wrote here that evolution is expanding like waves in the water: each new wave carries own the dust of the last wave and reaches more dust ahead. So the second wave of evolution receives the systems from the first wave, aggregating new information, evolving it and throwing it to next wave. The last wave has repeated all step of all waves before, that’s why a new shape, like a human embryo, repeats all evolutionary shapes. It means that the first moment of human life repeats the first moment of the Universe when the “life” of a universal natural system is began. It was a genetic code encoded by photons, then evolved to an atom like the first cell; to a nebulae of galaxies like the blastula… and so on.
I will research now what is the secret of zinc atom, it must have some property that something at the Big Bang had. But, as I said thousand times, the big secret of genome, or DNA, is that its electrons are occupied by photons with information of the life’s code. So, that light saw by scientists occurs when the male counterpart that contains the half of the code’s network meets the another half and the entire network flourishes… the mechanism is repeated when a supernova is born, as you can see at Matrix/DNA astronomical models. Three days ago another great prevision was conformed: #0 years ago when I got the copyright of this theory it contained that a star’s nucleus has a dynamics like the first frequency of light wave, which is the strongest. So, the nucleus should have a rotation fast than the above spherical rotations… This whole theory is results from calculations applying the most natural logic as I was studying the biosphere at Amazon jungle… and its right previsions has suggested that nature does not plays dice with its creatures, although we insist to play dices with her.

Articles are being posted in Portuguese only

Sorry. Since I am not having enough time for translating from Portuguese, for seeing the articles one need to chlick the Brazillian flag above. Also, I understand that the site is not explaining almost nothing about the theory. It is because the site is under construction, I have a lot of writed material but had no time and the special computers skills for doing that. I hope will do it soon. Thanks…

This is a good solution marrying God with the laws of Physics at the creation of the Universe?

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Let’s go to analyze this question from a new approach? We have the free will for to choose if we will be a closed system (dominance of selfish gene) or an opened system. God, evolution, or whatever want us evolving. And closed systems are closed doors to evolution. When a creature chooses to be a closed system he can built a paradise and accommodate itself in thermodynamic equilibrium. But since the Universe, God, or whatever, cannot permit someone stops evolution, applies the Law of Clausius, entropy, which makes the Fall from the Paradise and the creature began again in middle of chaos. Slowly it will get the state of order for evolving.

On the pathway of evolution there is the shape of mind, or consciousness, which shape is at embryonary state inside eggs, the human heads, since that it was born less than a second of astronomic time. Then, there is this thing about eggs: from primitives organisms to reptiles the eggs were laid out, the offspring abandoned to chaos, random events and tragedies. From the mammalian cyanodont to human specie the eggs are kept inside de womb, the offspring is nurtured till the birth and sometimes to the eighteens. Today humanity, and its mind, is at the state of eggs laid out. You see it living in the jungle: the biosphere is chaotic. Then, it should means that we came from a state of extreme closed system, a paradise built by our ancestors.

Why should an intelligent and benevolent God make such a plan for evolution? There is a rational possible answer.

Long time ago and before the universe, a hermaphrodite God shared into Father and Mother had a son with all love of the world. But, growing the son showed to be unhappy. Why? He had everything? He was the son of the supreme king!

He could not be happy because he was not the king, were not him that made the world, so, he feels that was not totally free, omnipotent. Then he left the God rein saying that should doing his own world, by his way, where he should be the supreme king.

Crying, Father and Mother God saw him leaving. Then, Father said to Mother: “Let him to build his own world, which he is thinking will be the perfect world, better than the world we did. He will make the first world, experiment it and will be not satisfied. He will make the second, the third, a lot of different worlds; he will forget us and our world. Then, one day, after thousands, millions of experiments, he will finally do the best world and will feel happy. Not totally. He will feel alone. It will be missing something, something like him, with the same intelligence, to share his rein, with love. It is not like a man wanting a woman, because spirits are hermaphrodite. And  because  the best  world he can do must be the mirror of our world his mind will have flashes of memory, scenes of his infanthood at a place where has someone like him, who loves him,

Then he will travel to the infinite searching the scenes of his mind. Arriving here he will be happy to know we exists, just someone like him, and will invite us for living in his world. We will go. Why? Because his world will be the same world we have now. There is no possibility to do a most than perfect world. It will be his illusion: he made the world. He is the supreme king. And we will be with him with love. Just like here. Anything will change, only his feeling that he is the final supreme: but he will be satisfied to concede to us the sharing of the ruler. Like now we share with him the power of the ruler. Let he to think that he is God.

So, this son was called Lucifer. And he is us, just now, trying to lift up from the fragmentation of our last built world for to do the next experiment.

Of course, this smell likes a tale. Merely a product of human imagination. It is probable that there a lot of unknown dimensions and things we don’t know, and the real history could be different. But whatever could be the history, whatever the first cause we are here and whatever the final destiny, the supreme meaning, the ultimate sense of existence, could be the meaning extracted from this tale.
