  1. Quit trying to be philosophical you douche. Leave chemistry and physics to the real men and go back to watching your soap operas.

  2. That was really a pretty good question.
    If a universe happens and there’s no one around to experience it, does it really exist at all?

    Yeah, it most likely does, but it was still a good question.
    Consciousness is only possible because of the brain, which is obviously made of matter.

  3. The second one. Those who don’t believe in God need our prayers, especially the holy rosary. The rosary is God’s preferred means for obtaining conversions. See the following promises.
    The rosary is explained here:

    The fifteen promises of Mary to Christians who recite the rosary:
    1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces.
    2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
    3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against Hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
    4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
    5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.
    6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.
    7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
    8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in Paradise.
    9. I shall deliver from Purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
    10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
    11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
    12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
    13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire Celestial Court during their life and at the hour of death.
    14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
    15. Devotion to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.
    God bless!

  4. The second one. Everything is matter, though not everything has consciousness. However, since everything is made of matter everything that has consciousness is made of matter. Therefore, matter is an attribute of consciousness, but consciousness is not necessarily an attribute of matter.

  5. Neither. Within our sentience, either may exist without the other.
    As far as we (our consciousness) can determine, there is matter (inanimate minerals, for example) which within our observation does not demonstrate any sentience, while there is no way to prove that matter is necessary for the sentience we express (can you prove – to yourself, forget about me and them – that you are a material being?)
