Three different families bought the same type of a TV. These identical TVs were sold in one and the same store and produced at the same enterprise… But the first family constantly watch the news broadcasts, the second family prefers various TV series, and the third one is a fond of sports programs. There is nothing to be surprised about. Why? Because in every family there is a primary User of the device purchased (a TV set in this case) and exactly this person determines its usage policy. As a rule, this TV was bought to satisfy the wishes of this particular User…
The same situation is with all other devices…
In fact, the term “device” always denotes some object (device, mechanism, construction, installation …) human beings have created for their own needs to perform strictly defined functions (personal computer, mobile phone, TV, radio, refrigerator, air conditioner, cookstove, car…)
For example, a personal computer (PC). Computers are called “personal” just because they are used by certain “persons”, i.e. “Users”. As a rule, each personal computer has one user. Each user is free to use his personal computer in his own discretion: to play computer games, to develop any innovative facilities, to constantly surf the social networks, etc.
What is an obvious conclusion we can arrive at after the results of this thought experiment?
Using a lot of identical devices, will never help different people to create the same information, since it is called “personal information” for a reason, that is, Users (“persons”) create it as well as possess it. And each user produces his own “personal information”, using the certain devices he prefers.
The same situation is with people…
Despite the similar functionality of the human bodies as well as the possibility to duplicate (clone, copy) their genetically identical material bodies, they all have and will always possess different memory, different consciousness, different character, different knowledge, different experience… Why is it so? One of the possible variants is that various people just have various Users.
The material body just provides “own” User with the opportunity to cognize “our” World and perform certain actions in it. It is he (“our” User) who feels anxious, thinks, dwells on something, enjoys… And each reader can guess what is the name of “his” User — it’s your Personality.
There are good reasons why such terms as a person that denotes the integrity of a human being (from the Latin persona) and a personality denoting social and psychological aspects of a human being (from the Latin personalitas) have the same deep root persona.
The question: When can somebody be done a favor? The answer: If you’re asked for a help. Otherwise, it will be a kind of involuntary action.
The question: Can somebody be offered with advices? The answer: Yes,it’s possible but undesirable.If you advise someone else, this one will start thinking about your own advice, that is, about your personal point of view on the issues he is interested in. As a result, this person will make no efforts in order to get answers on his own! But take into account that in the end, the one who gave advice will always be at fault …
The question: Is it possible to change some person for the better? The answer: Nobody has a right to change another individual.Neither for the better nor for the worse! In no circumstances! People have a right to make the information (their thoughts) available for each other!
The question: What is the way out then? The answer: You just need to bear information and a person decides by himself whether to think over it or to shut his ears to the words being heard. If he wants to hear these words and his intelligence allows to realize what he heard, then he’ll make decision by himself about the necessity of these or that changes…
The question: What rules must curer follow during the healing of individuals? The answer: Do not advice anything! Just ask your patient how can he/she change the current situation? How can he/she improve the current situation? Help (afford an opportunity) to “see” (sense) the way out of the current challenges. Do not interfere with this processunder any circumstances!
Modern scientists claim that they have already determined the directions that will enable humanity to make a breakthrough into its radiant future: nanomaterials, smart houses, travelling to other planets, cloning various creatures, storing information in DNA-like media, artificial intelligence, robots and biorobots, studying ocean depths and the depths of Space…
I dare say that most of the state-of-the-art technologies created today are so significant that their creators may erroneously believe that it is the development of these technologies that will allow their owners to “rule ‘Our’ World” in the nearest future.
But, from my point of view (and, unfortunately, not only mine), modern mankind currently has no future. All new technologies will only lead the modern mankind to collapse. The more revolutionary the new technology is, the faster it leads the modern humanity to the end.
It is not because these technologies are harmful, but solely because people use the fruits of any technological revolution primarily for such purposes as arms race, seizures of power, turning people into ‘zombies’, etc.
Invention of a wheel and a knife proved to be a much less dangerous technology for humans than creation of new viruses and bacteria, climate and chemical weapons over the past 100 years. And most importantly, the inventors (creators) of these technologies are not able to prevent such use in any way.
Many modern researchers realize the current situation and consider it to be hopeless so far, since up to the present there have not been found any acceptable solutions for mankind’s exit from its “nosedive” to death…
While investigating prospects for development of the mankind, I carried out many imaginary experiments, and as a result I “saw” the following main causes of this problem:
Cause #1: Most people consider themselves “the center of the Earth”, kind of “ kings of Nature” and don’t realize their true place in the hierarchy of the Universe. These earthlings honestly believe that they are at the top of the “food chain” and they can do whatever they want with complete impunity throughout their short life on the planet Earth.
Cause #2: People haven’t yet realized that a human being actually is a kind of an essence of field nature, which is “dressed” in a material body. This body is only a part of a human being, and it’s far from being the most essential one.
The result obtained in this experiment clearly showed thatno technological improvements of human bodies and the environment of these bodies are able to change the people’s attitude towards the Nature (the Universe) and to all its inhabitants, including their own species…
That is why, it is not the body of a person that should be “altered” – it is, first of all, people’s worldview, way of thinking, meaning of their lives. Change of the outlook will automatically lead to replacement of current dominant values (money, power, fame…) with new ones, such as harmonious relations with the objects of the Universe and with all its inhabitants. These new values will determine behavior of people and their social relations in the long run. On this basis, the direction of the modern mankind’s development will change automatically.
“You are looking into the interlocutor’s eyes and realize that a bag of meat and bones cannot radiate an intelligent look. You see the flesh, but you communicate with an invisible spiritual essence.”Yuri Larichev, writer and philosopher
Obtaining a strictly scientific proof of immortality of a human Personality and its consciousness and disclosing it to the general public (by means of demonstrating so-called ‘miracles’) should become the cornerstone of this crucial task.
At present, due to the conservatism of the official science, even studies in these areas are considered absurd, and any publications on such topics in scientific journals are kind of a taboo and are considered “undesirable”…
“The consciousness, which is already transforming and organizing a hefty chunk of “our” solar system, is denied objective existence only because traditional science doesn’t know how to approach it, didn’t create an appropriate conceptual apparatus and scientific tools for its study, and it is in no hurry to correct these mistakes and to overcome the arising difficulties.”George Somov, “Matter of Consciousness & Consciousness of Matter (Материя Сознания и Сознание Материи)“
This situation has led to the fact that even ‘crazy investors’ “do not see the advisability” of investments in this field. Investing in human development has become completely unprofitable, as the payback period can reach 30-60 years. Investors don’t realize that they themselves are blocking the most promising areas of investment in the history of “modern mankind”.
“If there is no immortality, then neither is the remorality: all is permitted.”Vladimir Bekhterev, “Immortality From the Scientific Point of View”

Does the “information field” exist or not? How do you think?
I guess that there are lots of “information fields” that differ from each other by the kind and form of stored information, the way of representing and perceiving it, types of information recording on carriers, information coordinates in our 3-dimensional space, etc. (In more detail the types of information I described in the Volume #25 “Information and Energy” of “The New Cosmic Philosophy” book series).
These “information fields” have special information carriers where all the data are stored; they also could have both material and immaterial nature. The main purpose of such information carriers is to save people perception, using any physical effects. Besides, there is unique filed on every type of carrier that simply has no relation to recorded information.
I`d like to mention that such concepts as “carrier” and “information carrier” are subjective ones, because they describe an object, information from the body of which an individual is able to read (to perceive). As example, one person is able to read information from the USB drive while another one considers it as an object with no intended use and nothing more.
The subjective variety of “information fields” depends on the subjective variety of information carriers that are located in the different “parts” of our 3-dimensional space.
Any library represents a peculiar “field” of shelves with some books, which contain the thoughts of dozens of thousands of people (the authors of these books) that is information. It is unique “information field” where the pages of books made from paper are information carriers. With the course of time material information carriers of this “field” will constantly change (stone —> clay tablets —> papyrus —> birchbark —> paper —>…);
World Wide Web is also original “information field” where the thoughts of million people are represented on the web pages. As a rule, hard drives are the parts of servers in the special “cloud” datacenters and information carriers of this “information field”. With the course of time material information carriers of this “field” will also constantly change (CD —> DVD —> HDD —> SSD —>…);
“Information field” of the modern humankind is also unique, its information carriers are the certain exocellular (immaterial) carriers that contain all information people have systematized during cognition. In other words, this is the very same place for storing consciousnesses of all the Personalities of human beings who have ever lived or now are living on the Earth. Sometimes the concept “information core” is used instead of “information field”. Globally, this concept means one`s ability to receive information about any object of the Universe in any place of our 3-dimensional space by adjusting to wavelet characteristics of a cognizable object.
And now let us proceed to the most interesting point. Many people ask me such a question: “Can I get a personal access to the ‘information field’?” My answer is “Of course, you can. Every human being has a deep connection with this field from the birth of his corporeal body. Your intuition is a hint at this very same ‘field’.”
Some people keenly go with their gut feeling while others have no need for doing it! So, only certain individuals can reasonably answer the following question: “Why do you need an access to this information field?”
Let`s puzzle out this situation step by step.
Do you need an access to the “information field” where is stored information you don`t know about for any existing reason? No problems… Go to the best circulating library. It turns out that you just fool yourself, because you have no desire to study medicine, chemistry, biology, mathematics, etc. You have zero intention! What do you have reliance in? You think by accessing to information field you immediately and effortlessly perceive all information stored there (the thoughts of other people). Well, well… It doesn`t work like that…
“Our” World is different, this proverb is the most appropriate to describe it: “The race is got by running!” Only certain efforts aimed at cognizing a particular object (process, phenomenon) can allow you to cognize and understand it, as a result, the information you personally receive during cognition will become a part of your consciousness.
Finally, the most important question without answering which “connection” to any “information field” is simply meaningless, sounds something like this: “Is the requested information useful if you successfully receive and understand it?” Fall short of hope … no one will answer you… because every person has his own “path of life” in this World.
Only being fully aware of the goals for information obtaining (when you could be useful for the Universe), you can count on gaining access to the “information field” … All the mechanisms of Nature (all the mechanisms of the environment of human beings) function according to “self-developing” algorithms, the main purpose of which is the sustainability of all its “parts” … Nature protects itself from irrational beings who can apply information received to the detriment of the Universe …
Cast mind back to the 80s of the last century, when in the USSR many citizens collected books in beautiful covers on their bookshelves, conceiving that the bigger number of these books, the more convinced would be their guests of a great intellect of their owner … and for years these books were on the shelves with their pages being untouched…. uncovered, unread, unrealized … 🙁 Do you strain after this?
Recall Atlantians, Sumerians, Toltecs and other representatives of “other humankinds”. It appears that these people were in the dark about the functioning principles of Nature algorithms.
Thus, find your position and make right decision!
“Do not gain knowledge only to thine undoing. Remember Adam. Do not obtain that which ye cannot make constructive in thine own experience and in the experience of those whom ye contact day by day. Do not attempt to force, impel or to even try to impress thy knowledge upon another. Remember what the serpent did to Eve. In the studies, then, know WHERE ye are going. To gain knowledge merely for thine own satisfaction is a thing, a condition, an experience to be commended, if it does not produce in thine experience a feeling or a manner of expression that you are better than another on account of thy knowledge. This becomes self-evident that it would become then a stumblingblock, unless ye know what ye will do with thy knowledge.As to the manners of interpreting – these may be observed, these may be made constructive by the study of those influences that in the associations and dealings with thy fellow man ye have had weaknesses, inclinations. These are mental, not material things, though they may have brought material activity. Warnings, constructive activity in warnings, then may prove to be of helpful experience in the activity of any individual group. That this should not include documentary data or evidence, to be sure, is well; for documentary evidence to the mind of the masses is nil. Only that which produces or makes for experiences that may make a citizen a better citizen, a father a better father, a mother a better mother, a neighbor a better neighbor, is constructive.”
In this article, the author gives definitions of such notions as consciousness, sub-consciousness, being and entity for any biological or non-biological objects. He also considers these notions in relation to computer systems. Different approaches to objective estimation of various objects’ consciousnesses are also suggested. Besides, the writer offers the way to determine the exact point when a conscious object turns into a being or an entity.
Disputes over the interpretation of such notions as consciousness, subconsciousness and a being have been taking place throughout the history of the so-called modern humankind and provoke people’s interest up to this day. Nowadays these debates have reached their climax.
Scientists from various research centers actively develop different structures (e.g. devices, robots, mechanisms, and so on), which, as they claim, possess artificial intelligence.
So, now – like never before – there is a need to formulate unified terminology and related nomenclature, which will be used within various areas of research, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, biocybernetics, computer systems, etc. It will help modern researchers to find a common language, which, in its turn, will contribute toward development of the technologies that will benefit the whole humankind.
I think that the future of the modern humankind is tightly intertwined with answers to such questions as “What are consciousness and subconsciousness?”, “What is a Being?”
This paper is devoted to finding answers to these questions.
2. PROBLEM DESCRIPTION
“There is a conceptual gap between science, which stands for objective measurement and the conclusions we can draw thereby, and consciousness, which is a synonym for subjective experience. We obviously cannot simply ask an entity in question, “Are you conscious?” If we look inside its “head,” biological or otherwise, to ascertain that, then we would have to make philosophical assumptions in determining what it is that we are looking for. The question as to whether or not an entity is conscious is therefore not a scientific one. Based on this, some observers go on to question whether consciousness itself has any basis in reality.” Ray Kurzweil
“Proposals have been regularly presented that purport to be scientific theories linking consciousness to some measurable physical attribute — what Searle refers to as the “mechanism for causing consciousness.”  Ray Kurzweil
“As British psychologist and writer Stuart Sutherland (1927–1998) wrote in the International Dictionary of Psychology, “Consciousness is a fascinating but elusive phenomenon; it is impossible to specify what it is, what it does, or why it evolved.”  Ray Kurzweil
