I decided to participate in the Share Your World action hosted by Melanie C Bee. Here is my response.
What is knowledge?
A path to wisdom.
How do you define consciousness (self awareness)?
This one is tricky for me; I’ve shared enough alternative realities in the past that I depend on physical sensation as much as thought to sort things out.
Is it possible to prove that other people besides yourself have consciousness?
It’s a matter of trust. I’ve discussed this with people who believe, ” this is my world, and you just live in it.” People who are too hung up on this s–t should read Bishop George Berkeley’s take on it – it was called Immaterialism. His theory denies that material objects like stoves, tables, and chairs exist. They are ideas perceived by the mind, and their existence is only maintained by perception – good luck with that when you stub your toe in the dark.
Would you be able to tell if time had been altered in some way?
Some of the most exciting stuff I’ve been through may have happened on alternate timelines. I’m not an unbiased observer, although it’s been many, many years since I sampled any goodies.
Do you like potato chips (they’re called ‘crisps’ in Europe I believe)?
I like them without salt and minimally processed. The over-processed stuff I won’t touch. Vade retro Satana

I adore your supervisor. I’ll have to take a look at the book on Immaterialism. Sounds like he’s only got half the puzzle worked out. I have stubbed my toe in the dark so now I keep the lights on a little. 😉 It hurts like H**L!
Thank you Louis for Sharing Your World. You’ve given existentialism and the Universe a lot of thought (whether with goodie enhancement or not is your own affair of course) and I found your answers very informative. I’ll have to look for that book too, although I don’t particularly agree with the author, having stubbed my toe and stepped on sharp pointy things in the dark often enough to refute his findings. But. Maybe I imagined doing all that too! 😉 Thank you for participating and I hope to see you here again! Have a wonderful week!
Oh? I forgot to mention your supervisor! What a beautiful cat and I’m sure (s)he is a very good one! Well as long as there is the possibility of tuna, right?
