    can this world that you and l see be caused by lnsanity?

    what about the consistency ln complex interactions, laws of physics, and the huge world?
    There are soooo many objects to see/feel - ls this possible?

    can you give me a psychological or reasonable answer?

    thanks

    To say it is caused by insanity would imply that an independent world exists that would be that which is observed by the sane. Funnily enough, the world observed by the sane would still not represent the full reality of the world and would still be subject to subjective interpretation. So how would you know what is a sane view of the world?

    Well, I would guess that a world created by an insane person would be centralized around the individual in question. This person would not be able to acquire new knowledge about how the world works without being able to have access to the objective world. I suppose you could make things up as you go along, but I am certain that one would encounter problems with consistency. Certain experiences would be entirely new and couldn't possibly be constructed out of thin air by a limited brain.

    I guess it depends on how complete the delusion is. For all you know you might be a super being dreaming of a creature with less faculties. Only problem is that I am here and my own person, so this would mean that we all are our own people that think for ourselves that exist in a logically consistent world. You would not be able to tell the difference then, but it would not matter, since you would be tailored to exist in this reality and would have no concept of a different one and would never be able to find evidence of an outside world. That would render the whole concept useless and not worthy of consideration.

    This is actually philosophy.

    Man, I can blabber on about nonsense when I get going! :? Simply put: No, the world is not the product of insanity.

    this is my first post but i completely agree with you, maybe its just a coincidence that this questions come out just after the new series of ashes to ashes has started
    (for any1 who hasnt seen it the main character is in a coma but also in her own subconscious world)

    but
    the thlng ls our memorles are Llmlted..
    how could my braln causes such sophltlcated thlngs to happen ?
    how do u know your memories that limited? for all I know this is my own world and i have just created this by either a very good imagination or i am blocking memories getting through until they are learnt in my subconscious world. anything is possible if u say this was all created by our brains because we could be choosing to show as little or as much information as it wants.

    you know, from the title i thought for a short moment that you claimed that our forum owner (In)Sanity had somehow been involved in the creation of the earth

    now THERE's a scary thought

    Yeah it's Insanity!

    It's HIS fault!

    Hiding behind admin of the Science Forum and staying out of the religious arguments

    And now it turns out HE IS GOD!

    on a side note.

    can you be causal to this world without creating it?
