You can’t out imagine your imagination

I suspect that even human imagination is confined to natural law. Human thoughts are only the unique arrangements and patterns of phenomena generated by the natural world. The human mind does not “create,” but rather “reconstructs.”

I have a thought experiment to test this idea. Try imagining a new color, one that you have never seen before.

    Human imagination is not confined to natural law.

    Among all creatures, homo sapiens is the only one who has no idea how to fulfill its nature.

    The 2500 years of our Western Heritage is man’s most successful journey to discover himself, his nature.

    If human imagination were confined by natural law, there would be world peace.

    The broken state of human affairs as expressed in war, crime, greed, and unhappiness is physical proof that in general, man has no idea about natural law.

        Reagent,

        “Speak for yourself,” is a nonsense response.

        If you can’t understand the truth of my comment you really do need to get out more.

        Further, based on your post and your comment, it is clear that you have no idea what natural law is.

        Did you know that natural law is a subset of Judeo-Christian values?

        It was incorporated into Christianity by Saint Thomas Aquinas during the Middle Ages.

        Because of natural laws close relation with Christianity, you the atheist, should be going, “ICHY POO!” right about now.

        Your posts are just trolling. There is nothing beneficial in this conversation.

        Please pray for me

        Finally, som, I see you demonstrate independent thought, rather than merely spit regurgitated garbage. I was hoping for better than icky-poo.
