There’s more than that. Belief doesn’t just “happen”: there’s a subject performing the action of belief. So that’s another object to consider.

 

 I’m experiencing the end result of complex processes that are linked to the object of contemplation.
It is like millions of interpreters talking different languages, negotiating, attempting to do their best in their roles in the chain of events that lead to an experience.
===
 These millions of interpreters CAN sometimes get things wrong but they do a very fine job most of the time. They can also talk amongst themselves and generate their own combinations that resemble something from the original experiences without needing extra input, because they each have their own memories in their own fashions.
 It is a question designed to force a binary choice when there are more than two choices available.
Am I the mere passive receptor of the external world?
No. I engage and change the outer world as well. There are continual feedback loops. Where do I end and the world begin?

 The wire is connected to everything in the universe.
 I am that wire as are you as is every object
 Of course. You use the word “wire” as a function and I am asserting that yes, communication is a function shared by every object in the universe
Any object that does NOT communicate, is not experienceable by any other object and therefore does not exist

You’re asserting relative locations of inside and outside.
I’m saying that this ‘wire’ you brought up is an analogy for the process of communication.

Everything that you can see, hear, touch, smell, experience BECOMES a part of you.

There is no isolation. Isolation is an illusion.

 I probably am not understanding the question properly.
I thought you were using “wire” to indicate communication. How do I experience communication?
But are you referring to an imaginary copper wire or something? I’m missing something, honestly.

We humans are too tiny to embrace the totality of experience so we simplify, yeah.

I live inside of my brain, Paul. A lot of my experience is auditory, not visual.

 I’m also very attached to my skin. The nerves of my skin are very overactive and are constantly bombarded with input from both the outside world, its own net and cross signaling in the brain. It’s very annoying at times.

I’m attached to my own experience of reality, not diagrams. I wish I could find diagrams that could make better sense of things. Most of them do not.

My compare/contrast function is in overload mode most of the time.
I found a possible reason why a few months ago. Timing mechanism in ADHD but only in emotional states is a LITTLE bit faster than it should be (shorter milliseconds)
So part of me experiences a little “more” input than most people which collides with other parts of my brain which are trying to operate at “regular speed”.
A travel through my timeline through the years will show my patterns.
I’m not avoiding your question.

 I have a little nugget area I live inside of in my brain.
It’s small but infinite in its own way. It’s partly visual, mostly auditory and “pressures”.
Everything that comes in and also is generated from within is processed in that nugget of space that’s ALWAYS there and I’m always engaging with.
Is it real space? Well, I know it’s a coping mechanism that I generated as a boy when I was learning to control stuttering and I expanded it ever since.
It’s my processing area.

Ok. I can answer your question now.
Inside.
I had to unravel a lot of past research by writing it out before concluding.

My significant life’s work isn’t reduceable to a talking point in a comment section on my facebook wall in a momentary debate.
I had to go through it before being certain of my answer. That is how I sort my thoughts out: by writing them out. I did not have an answer “at the ready”.
===
I’m sorry if this caused you frustration even as such to consider I was lying but it couldn’t be helped. I did not have an answer for you until I went through my own maze to get to my answer for it.

We’re all very similar people, you, me – a lot of people on my friends list here.
And – we all have SLIGHTLY different yet very distinct ideas in similar areas of inquiry.
  I’ve doubted my reality on a regular basis. It’s actually quite horrible at times but I’m used to it. I think I figured out the cause finally after decades but for example, I would often not trust a chair to hold me up as I sat down just for a split second.Just for a split second, I imagined I’d travel through to the center of the earth and get stuck. Or I’ll be walking and the thought would flash about the pauli exclusion principle giving way, all the electrons lining up perfectly and mine and I’d slide through. Just for a split second and I’d brace myself.

 You have intellectual exercises and logic. I have ongoing doubt of constructed experience that is from waking to sleeping.
My reality is continually knitted together by me and it’s a lot of work.
===
 How important is it that other people agree entirely with your conclusions?
Mind is experienced. It’s of a different type.
Maps and locations and objects are dead things.
Processes and actions and activities are living things.
===
 They’re emergent properties. Thoughts exist while thinking. Stop thinking, the thoughts stop.
===
Where do thoughts come from?
Doesn’t matter. They don’t exist until they do. They’re distinct from that which they arose from even if they are bounded by it

 Which observations are acceptable and which observations are not acceptable?
