What is a human being?
Ok boys and girls, it seems we rarely move past things we think we know, so lets try and figure out what we do know. I can't think of a better starting point than YOU. Well you as in ME. The self you consider to be your IDENTITY. What are you? Who are you? What is the difference between what and who you are? Where to you consider yourself to be? In time? In space? When you look what do you see? Where are you seeing from?
I've come to the conclusion that we have two intellectual categories. Those who think we are lumps of meat. And those who think we are meat plus something else? What is that something? A soul? And if no soul, then what is the difference between the living and the dead? What is no longer "alive" when you are dead? What constitutes awareness? And what percieves perception? If it is the senses that distinguishes experience, then what does the sensing? Where do the senses derive their information from and where are they sending it to?
What and who are you?
