Puppet’s Ghost

Many talks about consciousness and what is left? Science and modern philosophy (moat of all, Anglo-Saxon) tell you that there is no such a thing as consciousness. This is mythological talking, it’s past, it’s French. There are no spirits. It’s a belief for primitive people, poor guys from the old times, a tribe thing. Take the Australian aborigines: it’s not them, they are not stupid. They lack appropriate knowledge, that’s it. Now we have science, we have neurology. We have quantum physics (which we don’t understand, by the way. I mean: no human being understands it, properly). We have big bang theory (bang a gong).

So is brain just electrocuted soft tissues?? Actually,yes, I agree with this option.

Our brain is a biological puppet, maneuvered in cognitive postures by the narrative forces in which is immersed. The narrative environment radiates on his cognition the response of a character. A brain in this semiotic atmosphere is accelerated in a mind: the semiotic rays turn cognition in narration. That’s it.

What else???

Oh, I forgot. When a brain turned in to a mind, it represents itself to itself in a narrative mode. He becomes a long journey chasing the narrative tracks that generated him. He runs on the semiotic trails, that are the passage of a consciousness. Finally he reaches the source of the narrative radiations: a mind telling a story. Or a brain self-representing to itself. Meaning???

You can say that a brain to explore appropriately the permutative and multiverse complexity of his own architecture, needs to project itself in the extended environment generated by other mate brains.

Or you can say that the narrative forces haunt the brain and the cognitive infestation evokes hallucinations and deliria in the neuro-architecture. A cerebral fever calls the projection of a ghost. Is it real? Like any ghost…( I think that the Anglo-Saxon audience has a problem with ghosts: Hegel was really meaning that ideas are more real than stones: spirit is more real than matter. Catholics really believe in the transubstantiation of the wafer. Ontic as pragmatic in Heidegger is bad in comparison to ontological or theoretical…).

I’m confused: brain is a puppet, consciousness is a ghost…. Don’t tell me that….


Mind is the puppet ghost.

I mark two red strips under my eyes, beating my chest. Outside there is battle of ghosts. And gods and demons. And I don’t want to miss it. Hóka-héy.
