Philosophy #21: Physicalism

Physicalism is a philosophical position holding that everything which exists is no more extensive than its physical properties; that is, that there are no kinds of things other than physical things. According to physicalism, the language of physics is the universal language of science and, consequently, any knowledge can be brought back to statements on the physical objects. In contemporary philosophy, physicalism is most frequently associated with the mind-body problem where it holds that all that has been ascribed to “mind” is more correctly ascribed to “brain” or the activity of the brain.

Did You Know #47: How Many Colours Are There?

The answer is basically infinity, But the number of colours we see is a different story.

Psycho Physicists; who study human responses believe they have figured out the total number of colours the human eye can distinguish.

A study done by these Psycho Physicists, says that the eye can see one thousand shades of light, as well as one hundred levels of red-green and one hundred levels of yellow-blue.
This means its 1000 x 100 x 100 = 10,000,000. (ten million)

Ten million shades of color!

However, they all stem from 11 main colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, gray, black and white.

The rest are just combinations of these colors.

It may also interest you to know that today’s standard computer screen shows over 16 million hues of color for a single full color image.

Philosophy #13: Materialism

Materialism is the theory that the only thing that exists is matter or energy; that all things are composed of material and all phenomena (including consciousness) are the result of material interactions. In other words, matter is the only substance, and reality is identical with the actually occurring states of energy and matter. To many philosophers, materialism is synonymous with physicalism. However, materialists have historically held that everything is made of matter, but physics has shown that gravity, for example, is not made of matter in the traditional sense so physicalism is used to emphasize a connection to physics and the physical sciences.

Comprehension Of God/Universe

“There are approximately 250 billion stars in 1 galaxy.

There are approximately 2 trillion galaxies in our universe.

If there are an average of 3 planets per star, that means there are 1,500,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets in our universe.

But all of that is just but an infinitesimally small speck of dust within Infinite Consciousness. All those planets are as far away from infinity as the number 3.

It takes Infinite Consciousness less than a nanosecond to dream all that up.

It has no beginning or end. It goes on forever. It is unlimited.

Imagine holding all of that form within your consciousness.

Try to comprehend that. That is the mind of God.”
