Did grad school stuff actually stick?

Actually, I've haven't taken any classes in philosophy - yet. I'm currently studying to become an English high-school teacher, though my long-term goal is to become a professor of philosophy and/or parapsychology.

Writing out my argument above has made me think that perhaps the concept of the metamind will be more sensible (not to mention more palatable) if it were an evolving process, rather than the "unexplained explainer" god that it currently comes across as.

Basically, the universe is an evolving process where the primary units of existence are experienced archetypes/eternal objects instead of the unobservable, insentient matter of materialism.

We, as conscious beings, are aggregated societies of archetypes that have evolved from less complex aggregations. In a way, this means that our thoughts are really not our thoughts at all, but rather combinations of different eternal concepts. I find this, oddly enough, rather awe inspiring. <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> view post
