Where is your body?

Post by mirror93 » Thu Nov 23, 2017 5:00 pm

If you can only perceive objects around you then where is your body located?

The doctor isn't just part of your perception. The doctor is physically there otherwise how would he write his clinical notes on your case to refer you to a psychiatrist?

Firstly, I simply accept that you are another person in my day to day activities, as to question repetitive normal known activities would be too time consuming and serve no point.

If you are suggesting you are something else, then hurry up and say what that is. I'm not here for a guessing contest.

If you can't set out your alternative hypothesis, then it is a waste of time for me to bother considering experiments to debunk a nonexistent hypothesis.

Do you have an alternative scientific hypothesis to offer us or not?

Crikey Mirror, your're having a great night.

Where "ARE" your body?

I have no idea. But I know here "IS" my body.

Right here, sitting on my chair in front of my computer answering your stupid posts. Come on mate, at least get you grammar correct.

There is that in the universe which is not me. I am what's left.

Is that deep or what?

Here.


I'm assuming the question is hypothetical since you don't only perceive objects around yourself. You can also perceive yourself, and if you don't, seek help.

actually this wasn't serious, it was just to troll the topic made by 'thebrendanlea' - "Where are you?"


But when you are perceiving objects, the perceiver(you) is not perceiving yourself, because you are perceiving the 'external', the one perceiving is you therefore you cannot perceive yourself in this moment, lol

Hopefully, not in a straightjacket imagining the location of my body and the objects around it.
If I am, that proves that I've got one hell of a boring imagination.

G'day karen_bubblegum, welcome to our crazy forum.

We have some "very different" contributors here but also some excellent debate. We may not always be able to offer causation, or even decent association, but we are always ready for a good (heated) debate on what we believe, even if we can't prove it.

Welcome anyway Karen

Disagree. When you are perceiving objects in your environment, you are also—consciously or subconsciously—perceiving the relationships between those objects and yourself. If your statement were factual, then I wouldn't be able to see myself in a mirror, since I'd be perceiving the mirror and, thus, couldn't perceive myself. Clearly, I can do both simultaneously, as evidenced by the fact that I tweeze my own eyebrows. :mrgreen:
