A solution to Libet's puzzle

Postby bahman » Thu May 09, 2019 9:01 pm

We can do one conscious act at any time. There are two time points in performing the Libet setup: (1) Time of decision and (2) time of conscious reading time from the clock. Therefore we either do (1) then (2) or (2) then (1). If time of (1) to (2) is bigger than (2) to (1) then Libet problem is resolved.

Physically yes, mentally no!
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

Have you never been in a situation where your mind tells you to do many things at once, but you have to stop and choose one to physically do? a flood of thoughts, that trigger a moment of a call to many actions, then either.. none are done out of sheer exacerbation and we give up, or one is settled on out of the need of necessity of having to get something out of the way before we can move on.

Having said that.. sometimes multi-tasking is the only option we have due to time constraints, and more than one task can be undertaken, but with a necessary focus applied to achieve the feat.

I can do only one conscious act at any given time. Subconscious mind helps me to handle a situation when I am overwhelmed with too many things.

..I cannot remember where or when, but I do recall a male acquaintance attempting to multitask and failing miserably, as he simply couldn't mentally achieve his goal, then he gave props to us females for being able to.. although some men can, but not to the extent of we.

First multitasking is not dependant on being conscious of both actions at the same time. Second the sex difference on multitasking is a myth.

And multitasking is generally a bad choice, though with employers acting the way they do these days, few of us can avoid it and the bad side effects of it.

How about when employers are not the authority , what if You are the employer and the employee? Does that make a lot of difference?

How did I get here? Well that has to do with the supposition that there IS infinite and transcendental reincarnation, (can / could offer proof, but I am bound not to); .....

Maybe it has no relation to needs as opposed to requirements

A “requirement” is defined by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) as a condition or capability required by a stakeholder to solve a problem or achieve an objective, while a “need” is a high-level representation of the requirementneeded. The need is the end result or purpose
