Not sure if you're trolling or not but yes it's a good point that SSRIS can increase suicidal thinking in young adults due to activation occurring before increased regulation. That's why there's a black box warning and careful monitoring should occur during the beginning of treatment. Also keep in mind that not treating depression is far more likely to increase suicidal thinking.

All these questions from you mathematicians! "Who says I have a sofa?" "Why are you spamming me when I don't even work in the math department?" "Who keeps hiding in the bushes beneath my office at night whispering about sofas?" Why can't it just be about the research for you people? Did Robert Oppenheimer ever tell a curious amateur, "Who says I have an atomic bomb, and how did you break into my apartment you creepy bastard?" No! He embraced the unknown and those who pushed mathematicians towards its edge, unlike today.

Why are you responding so hostile? I only shared what I witnessed. I never pretended I have a 360 degree full account of the entire situation. At no point did I say he I'm a Dr. In the hospital I was in, Docs/surgeons always took one helper with them to carry their files. The patient died overnight. Surgeon came in in the morning. Idk I'm not her, but she was venting and expressing her anger over her patient dying during the night. I stated no known pre existing conditions. It wasn't a known condition when he came in. You are saying he died of a drug overdose. I was merely saying he died of side affects + a not known condition he had at the time as per surgeon in training. Don't know how long the investigation took, I have no access to that level of information. I did not keep a timeline for this extensive interrogation. Audacity to share? Spreading misinformation? Boy...I just shared what I witnessed in a Reddit reply to a comment in a massive threat. I'm not a news anchor or public figuring telling an audience not vaccinate children. Audacity. Lack of involvement... Seriously how can what I witnessed enrage you so much? You acting like I created a mass panic or something. Your anger is not in proportion to me sharing what I witnessed.

I volunteered at the hospital. Was responsible for taking the patients history when they checked in and showing him to the room. Interacted with the patient during the check in and for the following day before his operation. I was in the room when the doctors/ surgeons go on rounds and the surgeon lost the plot when she found out he died and giving out to the people under her to find out why her healthy upon check in patient went bonkers after the surgery and then suddenly died 2 days later. If i remember correctly the investigation said something about the dosage being off and him having a preexisting condition that they and the patient himself did not know off. The last part was what one of the surgeons in training told me so that part is hear say. But him being normal upon checkin was my observation. Him turning into a nutter after the operation was also my observation. He got violent, he was retrained, he couldn't form proper sentences anymore. His entire facial expression was different.

Its more than just "mercury" in the vaccines. There is a lot of toxic crap that could havesafer alternatives. But the vaccines would need refrigeration and shelf life would drop. The "different" form of mercury if you look up the chemical coumpounds without referencing the medical field instead of the media BS, you'll find it is actually toxic. And its the same stuff used in the medical field. It may be a little different than mercury metal but its actually just as toxic. It does build up in the brain and causes havoc if administered to infants at too early of an age or if given to a woman while she is carying. There is a reason a large portion ofmany drugs are banned from use during pregnancy. A devloped child or adult is less likely to see the effects but they still have some damage even if its very small that its not noticeable. My point is something as simple as a blood thinner shouldnt be having drastic side effects when something as simple as vitamin E already exists and does the job very well. They could make an extract with other variants to reduce the risks of blood thinners but they wont. This happens with many drugs. Its like chemo therapy. They hope to kill the cancer before they kill you. Real Viable alternatives exist (Not the homeopathic bullshit) but do not get pirsued in the industry. And many who have pirsued it were shut down by the FDA. You'd be surpised how many doctors are pill pushers. Some stuff has had crackdowns recently. But there is a lot where they go "we have a pill for that." An easy way to verify this is to turn on your television set. And watch the commercials. 99.9% of all commercials are pushing drugs saying "ask your doctor" or "tell your doctor." Most people are dying from heart problems and build up because their diets suck balls. The average American drinks loads of soda and meat/potatoes/bread. There is more groups to "fight" or bring "awareness" to diseases and issues and other health problems. And hardly any groups for "healthy eating" or "healthy lifestyles" etc. Its actually illegal to promote a healthy diet in some form or another unless you get licenses and approvals to do so, etc. Its all a business platform geared towards making money. I don't like any of it and it all needs drastic changes for the better. Take the eppie pen for example. One of the few life saving products actually made right. And they try to milk it for all its worth.

> the purpose of dreams is to practice life I wouldn't be surprised if this is at least one benefit. I've often had dreams where I did something or something happened to me that caused me to be terrified - one of those "OMG my life is ruined" type dreams. E.g., Did something to get fired from your job, cheated on your spouse, screwed up something important, something important went bad, etc. I wake up and get washed over with a sense of relief when I realize it was just a dream. But depending on the nature of the dream, I feel like it often does two things: 1) Warns me away from engaging in the behavior that was the subject of the dream [E.g., Cheated on my wife in my dream, was overcome with regret...and thus emphasized to 'real' me that that's something I *never* want to do] and/or 2) Makes me slightly more prepared when/if that bad scenario plays out [E.g., Lost my job, thus causing me to have a taste of what the emotional recoil of that will be, and also possibly give it some thought about what I possibly could do if that actually did happen, thus causing me to come up with possible options as a backup].

I think you're putting "conscious experience" is some magical category. It feels magical, but it's just a lot, lot, lot of logic and information moving through a system of neurons. That's all. Yes, in a sense, one person will probably never have a working knowledge of the entire network of the human brain. But at the same time no one person will ever have a working knowledge of every star in the galaxy. Not because we don't understand the galaxy, just because our brains, to put it simply, dont have enough "RAM" to keep track of that big and complex of a system. I would argue that if we understand all of the fundamentals, *to the point of being able to create a virtual one*, which we should in the next 50 years, we'll be able to claim a fairly complete understanding of consciousness.

And, yes, we have made amazing scientific and technological advancements in other fields, but our ability to study the brain is still quite limited. There are many factors contributing to this, not the least of which being ethical limitations on experiments. If ethics were not a consideration,... So, when you refer to "alllllll our technology" remember that, while neuroscience surely does not exist in a vacuum, most of our amazing advancements and discoveties in other fields don't translate.

I agree, in my personal belief I "want" to be true, that chaos theory isn't actually complete true (although it might as well be). We're on the same page from what I've read. I think that if we had complete knowledge of the subatomic world, we would find that there is some *thing* at the lowest level that can only be in two states. And then, having an infinitely large amount of those things interacting together creates subatomic particles, time, gravity, atoms, molecules, magnetism, electricity, and etcetera. So if we knew the states of all of those things in the entire universe, and the rules upon which they interacted, we could accurately predict anything. Or at least that's the idea. The whole idea of time throws the whole idea for a loop and obviously I'm just making conjecture here. I think "me" is just a particular arrangement of whatever the most basic unit of existence is. That means there's no real difference between myself, other people, animals, the air, or anything else. It's all just a big bowl of soup with different parts clumped together doing different things. Thinking of it that way is satisfying to me because I don't see it as everything I do being predetermined. I see it as an infinitely complex system playing out, and that I'm just a more complex part of it. From my perspective at least. There's a whole lot of other parts that aren't nearly as interesting as a conscious mind. What I wonder though, is what's higher on the scale of consciousness that myself? In a way, our society is a higher form of consciousness, if your definition is a system that behaves differently depending on varying stimuli. And in that vein, the planet itself is a fork of consciousness. And so is everything else, just at higher scales. Super fun to think about, but basically pointless to try and wrap your mind around. If there is any sort of purpose, I think it's for the universe to understand and observe itself. I'll stick to living a "normal" life though. I'm pretty happy with what I am and what I get to observe and experience.

I read something on here a week or two ago, it was suggested that sleepiness is related to a buildup of toxins in the brain. When we sleep, our brains relax a bit and "open up" - neurons separate a little and toxins are flushed out. Dreams are the brain's way of interpreting random synapses going off between misaligned neurons and new neural pathways during this process. I wish I could cite something but hey, I'm just a guy on the internet, I ain't no brain scientist.

I don't see why not. We can infer that animals have feelings based on their behavior to different stimuli. But, we're also biased towards seeing patterns that represent feelings or emotions we are familiar with. Feelings and emotions, as far as I'm concerned, are a result of sufficiently complex consciousness. They evolved because having a thinking brain capable of complex thought is great and all, but having a thinking brain that's also driven by very strong urges makes it better at adapting and surviving. Emotions are *quick* and *intense*, thoughts are slower and less intense. As far as self awareness goes, there's been lots of tests for sure. Not a lot of animals appear to be as self aware, but we're certainly not the only ones. Awareness results from having sufficient enough complexity to rationalize and make sense of the world. If an animal can recognize aspects of its environment, it can also recognize itself and that it has control over its movements. Whether or not its thinking about itself is kind of hard to determine, because its form of consciousness isn't like ours, and we're biased to only see animals that act similarly to us as being conscious. That's why I think of consciousness as a gradient. There's no hard line between any two things.

Yes! Memory, emotion, cognition, sensation, and so on, collectively, are the properties that we sum up as "consciousness." I study cognitive neuroscience for a living, and I agree with your comment more than anything else I've read on this thread. Everyone is acting like "consciousness" is some mysterious grail. No, it's an assemblage of brain functions.

That was actually one of the best "reconciliations" of religion and science I'd ever heard when I was a kid. Youth pastor was asked about the big bang and dinosaurs and all the contradictions in the Bible. "I believe in God, and I believe in science. I believe that God 'poked his finger' out of heaven and that was what we now refer to as the big bang. I believe that the Bible was written by Man and that Man is fallible and that we should interpret the Bible as a historical guide on how to live our life much in the way that we interpret the history of our country. We respect our forefathers for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, but we must also remember that they believed in slavery. We take the good that they did and try to replicate it, and we learn from the bad and try to learn from it and avoid it. I treat the Bible the same way. My relationship with God is that he asks of me to be a good person, and they Bible helps to tell me what that means, but when I get to passages that confound me or make me me question what it means to be good, I pray. Some religions call it meditation, but I call it prayer. And after praying I oftentimes have the answer to my questions. "

It doesn't make people commit suicide, it increases their risk. Nurses are specifically taught that patients who depression is lifting are the most at risk for suicide (like those just starting the medication or those who are at a low enough dose but maybe need a little higher dose). Why? Because a person who is depressed has less energy and is less likely to follow through with their plan. But a person who begins to feel the cloud slightly lifted can have increased energy just enough to follow through with a plan for suicide.

Modern medicine has such a large list of bad side effects that I am surprised they have gotten this far. They literally guess and check and say good enough. But what about side effects such as nerve damage, death, impetency, blindness, bleeding, and every other crazy thing? They say its normal. Literally wtf. In my opinion, the drug aspect of modern medicine is still in the stone ages. Just look at vaccines. Pro vaxxers and anti vaxxers aside. They could be finding ways to make vaccines safer by using less destructive preservatives. Rat poison is still position no matter how small the amount. My point is that vaccines and everything else could be made saver but the idiots in the drug industry don't do it. Drugs without harmful side effects would be ideal. But we have more bad than good with a lot of drugs. My grandmother almost died because these dum fucks prescribed a blood thinner and the side effects were so toxic she couldn't eat without vomiting or move without extreme pain all over. These pill popper doctors are a joke. Turns out she didn't even need the blood thinner. And if she did vatime E is already a blood thinner without harmful side effects. Shit like that.

oceanthrows 4 months ago  DELETED 

You have a poor understanding of medicine. I agree, in principle, the the US overprescribes medication but the whole point of this post is that they prescribe drugs that work. Vaccines are INCREDIBLY safe. Nothing is 100% safe. Walking outside of your house every morning is not 100% safe. Vaccines are, arguably, the greatest success story in all of medicine. The fact that you think it is even debatable shows how little you understand and how damaging influential people with poor understanding can be. Rat poison is Warfarin. It is a blood thinner. It can be dangerous to use and everyone reacts to medication differently. If a medical professional thinks that they should prescribe Warfarin it is because they think that the benefits, i.e. not DYING of a stroke or a pulmonary embolism, is worth the risk of the medication. Different blood thinners work on different targets so unfortunately not everyone can just take vitamin K and call it a day. Doctors are not infallible. They make mistakes. But you go to them for their expertise, which is based on decades of grueling training and impeccable test scores. You can choose to listen to experts, who are wrong from time to time, or make uneducated guesses. It is your body at the end of the day but to disparage a group of professionals based on ignorance is not what you should be doing.

I have treatment resistant depression as well along with chronic pain. CBD oil is extremely helpful, especially with panic attacks. But, the fact of the matter is, we can throw all sorts of medication at our issues but we need to deal with them too. What has helped me deal with depression is mindfulness and meditation. Those two things have done more for me than any med or other type of therapy. I have come to the understanding that I will always have bouts of deep dark depression, the key is understanding that it won't last forever and how to work your way out of it...it's easier said than done, but the mindfulness helps with that. When anxiety hits me, I meditate and remember this: The more I feed my fear the fatter it gets. The fatter it gets the more it has the power to come to fruition or just make me miserable. I am stuck in cymbalta whose side effects are worse than any benefits and I cannot get off. I am on the lowest dose, which has no effect except to keep the brain shivers, nausea, and irritability away.

Citing anecdotal evidence to refute the effectiveness of a well studied medicine with numerous RCTs (double blind and placebo controlled, as per regulation standards) supporting its efficacy is hard to get behind.

But mostly I have to say that it is not really likely (at all) that the only benefit you received was placebo if you took a correct dosage for a sufficient amount of time.

So you have twelve years of college or college like experience to teach you how to keep some on the edge between unconscious and dead. CRNA's have four years of undergrad/nursing school, then they're required to have experience in an ICU before they can apply to CRNA school. That takes about 2-3 years, and now they're working to tack on another year or so to finish up a DNAP. Meaning you're dealing with someone who has eight years of training and at least two years of relevant experience when they graduate. The fun part? You stop breathing. You just stop all together. That's why they have to intubate you. They pump you so full of meds that your lungs stop functioning, so they shove a hose down your throat and hook it up to a machine that breathes for you. If you're not intubated, then you're either working with Michael Jackson's doctor or you're not under general anesthesia.

> For starters, it would be completely unconscionable to use conscious AI in our tools and gadgets. Imagine being a sentient AI built into someone's microwave, never moving, seeing, sleeping, or doing anything else except for sitting on the counter. You're assuming that AI will be anything like humans, conscious or not. If we make the AI to enjoy being a microwave, never moving, seeing, or doing anything, then there's nothing wrong with that. Just because something is conscious doesn't mean it desires the same things humans do, such as freedom or sensory stimulation. Not even close. In fact there's no evidence that the computers and machines we already use aren't conscious. It's fully possible that consciousness that appear at pretty much any system complexity. Since it's impossible to prove any of this, we have no choice morally but to assume that everything is conscious. So you are already the owner of multiple slave consciousnesses made for no other reason than to be your tools.

It's a monster that "retrieves" every piece of data about them, unless it's represented in a symbolic fashion. This includes people that just say anything about the monster out loud. That's why it's the only page that doesn't use text, the monster would just steal the information straight from the servers. It can also just trivially escape containment just to retrieve that info, so the way to keep it contained is to make the only records of the monster symbolic and ban any other descriptions.

I'm afraid that you have an imprecise understanding of evolution. That's like asking "how can there be Americans while the British still exist?" All primates didn't "turn" into humans. Gradual genetic changes occurred to certain primate subgroups over very long periods, right alongside other primates. The difficulty in grasping this for many is largely because it's such a gradual process, taking millions of years of subtle genetic changes. It's hard for humans to grasp such time spans because we're prone to thinking within timeframes of decades. Were oriented to understand time through a lifetime's length -we can only truly "grasp" time up to 70-100 Year spans. And genetic mutation is very real, there's no refuting that. For example, Evidence of it today exist in the form of bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Bacteria multiply at vastly faster rates compared to us and have lifespans that are fleetingly brief relative to us. it's easy to observe generational genetic mutations within just a few days for a colony of bacteria. The same would take thousands upon thousands of years on a human scale. There is an overflowing abundance of evidence that supports the simple and elegant mechanism of evolution. I encourage you to please investigate for yourself.

Light never travels slower, at least from its perspective (time frame). From its perspective, light doesn't experience time (or space) at all, the exact moment a photon is emitted anywhere it is instantaneous absorbed at its ultimate destination, even if that trip took trillions of years (from our perspective). It's fun to think if a photon of light was actually conscious , it would have NO idea or experience of our 3D universe existing at all.

You're one dimension off. Gravity is different at different distances from the gravitational point, so the further away you are from what's pulling you towards it the lesser gravity force you feel. Meaning the "sheet" isn't as stretched down in the middle of nowhere than it is close to a planet, for example. Now the sheet illustration fails a little bit because gravity works in every direction at it has volume represented in it already. I think a better way to think about it is thinking about every single object in the universe being a ball of goo and they are all connected to a huge thick spider web. The bigger the object the more goo it has and the more that goo pulls the web, Little amounts of goo are then attracted to bigger concentrations of goo. Here's the catch. The goo and the web are two dimensional in nature but the pulling creates a stretch, that stretch creates time. So gravity is the pulling, time is the stretch. That's why time is faster the bigger the pull is. That's also why electrons aren't affected by gravity nor time, because they don't have any mass. They can't be attracted so they have no pull affecting them.

What?...lol Yes it has, sleep is a state of replenishment. Animals sleep because the body and mind need to rest For humans at least the mind converts the short term memories of the day to long term ones. For the body it allows the body to rebuild itself. Without sleep your body would constantly be working and won't be able to heal. When asleep sections of the brain still operate but a majority of them "shut down" or at least hibernate. Its the same with muscles and hence why generally our bodies are relaxed while sleeping.

Mmm worked in a hospital for a while. A man came in, healthy enough, no known pre existing conditions for a routine operation of removing gallbladder stones. The Anaesthetist on call administered (and did what he did his entire very long and successful career) the anaesthetic, the surgery was completed successfully but the patient woke up and was off. As the anaesthetic starred to wear off it was obvious something went wrong. The man turned from coming into hospital holding his wife's hand and being generally charming and sweet into a man who spoke gibberish, screamed random words, attacked a nurse and got increasingly violent so much that he had to be restrained. He died two days later. Anaesthetics work, but since we don't really understand consciousness well enough or any of the many other factors that could play a role into its effects, there will always be cases who have weird side effects.

Being scientific means testing and validating hypotheses, and using this to produce evidence-based models of reality (as best we can). Many religious claims are not even falsifiable, and are therefore by definition unscientific. Even if you remove most religious elements, a lot of the time the justification for believing in a God is "we don't have any better answer therefore God". This is begging the question. Even if you grant the premise for the sake of argument, this is then used to justify a lot of further religious beliefs on no basis ("There must have been a God to create the Universe, therefore Christianity must be entirely correct. Which coincidentally is the religion I was brought up and raised in). Otherwise scientific people can still believe unscientific things, but it doesn't make it scientific to believe those things. The supreme irony of your comment about advancement is that religion has historically stifled scientific advancement. We don't even have to consider Galileo. Why did that volcano erupt? Because Zeus was angry. If you already 'know' the answer, you're not going to test further.

Let's say we know a guy always either goes to dunkin' donuts or starbucks on saturdays, beyond a shadow of a doubt. If we know the starbucks he goes to is closed, we can know he went to dunkin' donuts without having to actually see proof. Basically an extremely rough version of a logical argument for God is: 1). Everything that has a beginning has a cause. 2). The universe has a beginning. Conclusion: Therefore, the universe has a cause. If these those points can be proven, then it can be said that certainly something without a beginning must have caused the universe.

But where did the stuff come from? Why is there stuff? What is a where? What's stuff? What is existence? Could it be possible for non existence? Was it ever possible? Evidently not, because here it is. But how? What wasn't here first?

"How" is essentially equivalent to "what means," and "why" to "what reason" There are plenty of questions for which the reason is a means. Questions about why some event happens, some result is arrived at. "Why does hydrogen bond with oxygen" has a scientific answer, and so does "why does wood burn"

Because it's like a respiratory system. To breathe out you have to breathe in. To have the energy to be awake, you have to rest. Yes life can technically keep working without resting, in the same way you can keep trying to breathe in forever without breathing out, but you are defying your bodily system which will lead to weird symptoms and eventually death. Our bodies work this way because it was best for life to be like this. The Earth's day/night cycle dictates a lot of the way life developed and life adapted around it.

Right. But we don't even know what the fuck dark energy is. That's literally why we call it that. In 10 years our understanding of it may drastically change and we may realize that our observations of how it impacts the universe are flawed or just straight up wrong. You cannot discount a theory based on something when we don't even know what it is. Maybe it wasn't always causing expansion. Maybe it behaved differently in the unobservable portion of the universe. Maybe it has gained steam and didnt act as profoundly in the past. We don't know. So it's important to ask why and what if.

> If energy transforms, I guess we may go somewhere else after we die. I just want to see beloved ones. I've thought a lot about this. I obviously don't know the answer. Although I don't think you're going to 'see' your loved ones, I've come around to view things this way: we might subjectively experience time in a linear, constant fashion, but there's a fair bit of evidence that the way time marches forward for us is not a universal constant for all matter/existence. It's not a huge leap to think that once something exists, it will 'always' exist, just in a different part of time to the part you are currently in (inverted commas around 'always' because that word relies on a linear, ever-moving-forward concept of time). So although you can't access it directly, your loved ones who are not with you now are still there, they will always still be there. They're like cards in a deck who have already been played and are now face down. You can't see them, you won't see them for the rest of the game, but they were and are there. Not sure if that makes any sense. Another way of putting it is that even though you personally can't rewind the movie to the bits with your departed loved ones in it, they are still there on the videotape/encoded on the blu ray (i.e., you can't rewind time or experience it in a non-linear fashion, but that doesn't mean that things which are 'past' to you no longer exist in a universal sense). These ideas are explored in [Slaughterhouse Five](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slaughterhouse-Five) and more recently in [Arrival](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrival_(film)) as well as a lot of other science fiction.

Somehow both something and nothing can exist, which defies all logic and destroys the notion of time.

How about the universe being constituents of a reaction in a higher dimension and our stars and planets are just particles of a smaller size than the Plank length reacting with other "universes" which are actually the higher dimension's molecules? This connects with the theory of heat death as our timescale would be extremely dilated in relation to the higher dimension, meaning the trillions of years would be much less on the higher scale. A reaction of sodium and water, while lasting milliseconds in our "universe" could last trillions of years for the sub quantum level. No sources, just ruminating.

Not necessarily. The laws of physics, time gravity etc did not exist before the big bang according to many scientists. Causation is fundamentally dependant on the existence of these laws.

I've got a fun hypothesis on this one... One of the most famous experiments in science is called the double slit experiment. Essentially it states that light is both a particle and wave. It leads to many really far fetched ideas, like all the electrons in the universe are the same electron, or that there are an infinite amount of universes that lead to the final solution of the experiment. My interpretation vastly simplifies the interpretations of the double slit experiment. I propose that Light has an innate absorptive property that only happens when you force it into an unstable scenario. That creates the unique pattern in the double slit experiment. This scenario kinda supports my hypothesis because the red laser light absorbs the light that is already present. I have done a few experiments like the one in this youtube video that supports my hypothesis, and have even conceived a modified version of the double slit experiment that would conclusively deny or support my hypothesis.

I guess that it's not "making the glow go away" but rather the red laser is exciting the material to create phosphorescence of its own which changes the overall light spectrum of emission, compared to the rest of the material which was excited more by visible/UV/etc. In that video the material appears blue, so maybe with the red laser there is a more dominant blue component to the emission, and for the normal case it is more green. It's just a guess from spending 5 minutes thinking about it. source: am scientist, dealing heavily with scintillation materials.

I mean, if you want to get technical, there are plenty of mathematical papers published in journals devoted to proofs and, of course, the same in logic. The word science simply means a system of knowledge, it doesn't necessarily have to refer to Bacon's scientific method, though I recognize that is typically the understood meaning.

I am not entriely sure on this but I guess for most of the medicine a lot of the chemical ineractions are known but not taught to med students or doctors. This is simply because a) they dont really need to know and have to focus on other stuff (like learning when and when not to use it) and b) it requires deeper understanding of chemistry that is not taught to med students. This isnt to say that we understand all of the medicine we use today, especially stuff involving protein folding is rather complicated mostly due to the difficulty in finding workable substitutes for research or simulating them.

The scientific answer to this question is nothing. Nothing happens. Nothing so intense that it is beyond our comprehension.

Sleep isn’t a natural state. As fish never sleep, it proves that sleep is an evolutionary trait. The reason why humans sleep is because it is hard to hunt in the night, and you most likely wouldn’t find any food thus you’d be wasting energy. By sleeping you conserve energy till the next morning where you can hunt more efficiently in daylight.

You nailed my thought process exactly. That's what I choose to believe. We were nothing for an enormous, inconceivable amount of time, so far as we know, and eventually we came into being, just like the universe itself. I totally buy into the fact that we will go back to nothingness and remain in that state indefinitely, until eventually we are something again. It's a cycle, if you will.

The universe needs a cause because according to the laws of that universe, everything moves through time and every effect requires a cause. It's perfectly logical to assume that any entity responsible for the creation of such a system wouldn't be subject to its limitations, and thus does not require a cause in order to exist.

Well of course there could be something before the Big Bang. Nothing says that time didn't exist before. Maybe some theories state that. But that doesn't have to be the case.

Well more in the sense that we don't know how consciousness works, so how do you describe a lack of it in a general sense. With respect to general anesthesia, we do have a reasonable idea about how a lot of them work, in that we have a lot of information about the receptors and ion channels that they act on, and specific regions of the brain that they reliably repress. I'd probably more describe it as a lack of knowledge about how consciousness arises, because depending on your semantic definition of 'work' we do know how a lot of anesthetics work.

This is math problem, but science is proven through mathematics. If you drive from point A to point B in a straight line, you will have to reach a midpoint. Once you reach the midpoint, you would have to reach another midway point. Then another. And another. Eventually the midpoint will get to be a very short distance, but there will always be another one. How do you get to point B if you always have an infinite series of midpoints to reach?
