I didn't use the computer analogy, that was Mutex. My point was that the analogy doesn't work because for one thing computers aren't conscious and ignoring that the analogy still doesn't work in the way Mutex would like it to because the information isn't lost when the computer is switched off. Even if computers were somehow conscious that would still leave the same question of how the physical processes of the computer could possibly create subjective experience. They obviously can't and it's moronic to think that they could because physical mechanics and subject experience are entirely different things, like gravitational dynamics and Roman history but even more so.
Radio consciousness seems to make intuitive and rational sense, at least to me. Universal consciousness is interesting when you start thinking of the universe as fractal and look at how it's a perfect match for a brain's neural network at large scales. Fractal geometry for the universe is an amazing thought, it would mean consciousness itself is fractal and each one that appears separate would literally contain all others. Trippy stuff but the point isn't whether any of this is true, it's that the materialist explanation isn't, it's completely batshit. In fact it doesn't even provide any kind of explanation, it just gives a list of Roman emperors and then says that's how gravitational dynamics work.
In explaining consciousness, it may be that we literally need to think outside the box that is, outside the brain. We are not just conscious in a sense, we are consciousness, and consciousness is expressing itself through us. And in that sense, we all share the same consciousness.
In this theory which I think even some Quantum Physicist talked about is Consciousness came first. They are calling it panpsychism.
Most mainstream scientists believe that the brain produces consciousness. But from my own research and in what I gathered is, say a human baby is born at some point consciousness that has already been around for eons goes into this human body to experience a 3rd dimensional body with 5-7 senses.
When you talk about the radio that reminds me of frequencies. I somewhat remember an example that was given to me that a dimension is like a radio station. We are stuck on this dimension on one radio station. But there are many other radio stations and frequencies that are there but we can't hear them or see them because we are stuck and focused on this one radio station or dimension. That is kind of what a good Psychic or Medium does. They are able tune to the other dimensions that we can't see or hear. Does that make sense? I could be wrong about all this but just making these points to consider.
