99. Last try
Ok, I won't argue about whether calling my ponderings ludicrous and silly is a personal attack. Maybe that's your modus operandi. You did seem very angry in your last post, though.

1. Let's drop that one.
2. No
3. I assume those are terms from physics that you already know I'm not familiar with. I'm still trying to figure out exactly how you think it works without conscious choice. I always hope to learn something new and fine tune my understanding from these kinds of discussions. But I will modify my statement to say that the brain and the mentality/consciousness work as a whole. I still do not see how the brain can generate consciousness, and I still think that consciousness continues after the death of the brain. I'm still looking for a better way to express the way I understand it at this point, in my pitifully small way.
4. Agreeing with you is arguing from ignorance? Well, yes it is. Whether we agree or disagree, we're both arguing from a little knowledge and a lot of ignorance.
5. I guess it boils down to why and how music and color affect our moods. You see no relationship between music and color. That doesn't mean there isn't one. I keep coming back to that point and wondering about the arrogance of science sometimes. Why is it so difficult to imagine that more will be learned about the relationships of electrical frequencies?
6. I put the word "or" in bold for a reason. But if science can explain it, perhaps you'd like to tell us exactly how that anomaly in the brain works that permits a person to see colors with music.
7. See #4. And unlike you, I'm not claiming to be right about anything. This is the point where I am at the moment. I modify each time I learn something or have an insight (where does that come from, by the way?). I don't think anything I've said is beyond the realm of possibility, even if it doesn't fit with your criteria for informed argument.
