The Permanence Review, Issue #10: Einstein and Hume Quotes, and Live Event Announcement

The first quote from Hume, and second from Einstein, strengthen my perspective of the nature of remembered-thinking. The quotes focus on the subjective experience of time when thinking about external events. My essay focuses on the subjective experience of time when thinking about internal-events. Crucial to my ideas is the fact of unitization of remembered-thoughts, of separation, and perceived ordering. As long as perception conceives of remembered-thoughts in the same way as perception conceives of remembered-external-events, Hume and Einstein's assertions about the ordering-principle behind subjective-time-perception holds true for my own ideas.

Building knowledge about the mind using a power even Jedi don’t posses

If Rey and Kylo Ren were to do an experiment, where Rey said, "I remember imagining Jakku just a couple seconds ago, the market to be specific, and I remember the image I imagined quite clearly. Can you confirm for me that I really did imagine the market at Jakku, exactly as I remember imaginging it?" I believe in this case Kylo Ren could say, "Well, I can see your memory of Jakku, and I can see the market, and I can see the feelings you have when you imagine it, and I can also see the memory you have of remembering imaginging the market. But I don't know for sure that your memory of imagining the market matches up exactly with the actual imagining experience you had two seconds ago." The only way Kylo Ren could accomplish this task is by first viewing the imagining in action, watching it play out exactly as Rey saw it play out, then read her memory of imagining the market, and confirm for her that the in-action scene matches with what's in her thinking-memory.

How To See Webb’s First Images!

The public release of Webb’s first images and spectra is July 12 – now less than two weeks away! The Webb team has confirmed that that 15 out of 17 instrument modes are ready for science, with just two more still to go. As we near the end of commissioning, we wanted to let you know where you can see the first Webb science data and how to participate in the celebration of Webb science! Here are all the ways you can #UnfoldTheUniverse with Webb:

Thinking, Remembering Thinking, Thinking about a Memory of Thinking, and how that Messes with Time: Part 2 (The Permanence Review #8)

In the second sentence, Einstein reports on an experience that must be described as remembering-thoughts-remembered-about-remembering-remembering, or some immense layering of complexity in remembered-thinking. There are reports of the memories, which he remembers-remembering, and reports of feelings, that he remembers feeling in association with the remembered-remembering. But most importantly, there is in the sentence an explicit analysis about the connection between different units of remembered-remembering, guided by remembered-feeling.
