Perfectly repeatable and connectable remembered-thoughts establish the means for perceiving causal relationships, more so than any remembered-external-event, and therefore causation most likely roots in remembered-thinking.
So that my core assertions may be taken from non-academic realms to the realms of academia, I've created this call for a lead-author and contributing-authors for a scientific paper that is described by the following hypothetical abstract (please consider submitting yourself as an author, or nominating someone else, by commenting or letting me know in any available way):
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.
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:
By darkness I mean the space behind or around the memory of a thought. If you wanted to explore more deeply the memory of the show at a music festival, you may return to the scene afterwards to get a better understanding of the geography, or attend the festival again next year to fill in some contextual gaps, or see the band again, meet them and ask about their perceptions of the same event. This investigative possibility does not exist for remembered-thinking, all a person has is introspection. This is what I mean by a deep dive into the darkness.
