The whole project of understanding how brains do the uniquely human things — learn language and abstract concepts, and thinking about other people’s thoughts — that’s brand new.

CA: So I’ve got one last question. There is this thing called the hard problem of consciousness, that puzzles a lot of people. The notion that you can understand why a brain works, perhaps. But why does anyone have to feel anything? Why does it seem to require these beings who sense things for us to operate? You’re a brilliant young neuroscientist. I mean, what chances do you think there are that at some time in your career, someone, you or someone else, is going to come up with some paradigm shift in understanding what seems an impossible problem?

16:26 RS: I hope they do. And I think they probably won’t.

16:30 CA: Why?

16:33 RS: It’s not called the hard problem of consciousness for nothing. (Laughter)

16:38 CA: That’s a great answer. Rebecca Saxe, thank you very much. That was fantastic. (Applause)

Knowledge cannot be seen as cumulative (building into a more and more accurate picture of reality) so the theories should be seen as more or less useful in terms of the purposes of the intervention being pursued and there always an agent making choices amongst a plurality of options and we should talk in terms of locally relevant rather than universal standards for choice. At the methodological level respecting the fact that others might have useful insights that we may learn from in constructing our own methodological ideas and the level of methods we can draw upon methods originally produced within other methodologies (Midgley , 2000 , p. 168 ) .

Life has no meaning

  • Life or human existence has no real meaning or purpose because human existence occurred out of a random chance in nature, and anything that exists by chance has no intended purpose.[172]
  • Life has no meaning, but as humans we try to associate a meaning or purpose so we can justify our existence.[143]

  • You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.[143]
  • The meaning of life is to forget about the search for the meaning of life.[143]
  • Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.[201]

Life is bad

  • Life is a bitch, and then you die.[146]
  • Better never to have been.[202]

The premise of The How of Happiness is (1) that happiness is worth striving for, and (2) that 50 percent of a given human’s happiness level is genetically determined (based on twin studies),10 percent is affected by life circumstances and situation, and a remaining 40 percent of happiness is subject to self control

I enjoyed the movie, and I wonder what if the name was blackout, or a name that describes the messiness of child sexual abuse and its effects along the life, or high school  groups . And  I think that the current name and may be the last scene is what enlightened  this ‘screenplay of the book” I didn’t read the book, and made it  nice .

I liked the meaning of Perk when looked it up.

    synonyms: recover, rally, improve, revive, take a turn for the better, look up, pick up, bounce back More

    “the economy has been slow to perk up”
    • make someone or something more cheerful, lively, or interesting.

“How do you want to use the rest of your life?” This question is from the Straight-line leadership book and the author added a valuable notice emphasizing  that the usage of our life, is not what we hope will happens to us nor the big dream we may want to attract .The author inner stance ,“ the position or mental posture you create to live your life from” as he describes in the book, that our life  is a raw opportunity either we use it or lose it and the choice is our regardless of the surrounding circumstances and the inner fears.

Although the paradigm is common in the western change culture but the author tried to distinguishes his coaching methodology  as an action based approach towards results.

من عرف وسمع للدكتور ابراهيم الخليفي سيلاحظ التقدم و التطور في المعاني و المقاربات المطروحه في هذا اللقاء الجميل الذي  قد اجراه مقدم برامج تلفزيوني ممتاز، اعتقد ان الدكتور ابراهيم ،وبالمنظور الذي تعلمته منه و الدكتور بشير الرشيدي ،انه انسان عرف ذاته وطورها فاصبح يتحفنا و يسعدنا بالجديد الآصيل ،اسال الله له و لنا  بصلاح البال.

في مقارنة للمعاني والاتجاهات التي تحبو في اتجاهها بعض الابحاث العلمية المعاصرة و الحديثة المختصة بالانسان  اجد ان الدكتور قد تجاوز بما وصل اليه  الافتراضات و المقاربات التي تقوم عليها هذه الابحاث في اغلب الحيان، على سبيل المثال مفاهيم سيكلوجية الايجاب (Positive Psycology) و انماط الشخصية و العلاقات او الاتصال .

متابعة ممتعة و مفيدة و شكرا للدكتور ونفعه الله ونفعنا بعلمه ويٌسر له الشكر.
