"Ghost Prototype I: Measurement Of Thought" as written by and Per Fredrik/ohlsson Nilsson....
A law of nature undefined
Subtle force we find at play
A door to thoughts revealed now
Open the gate, step outside the frame

Then you will find that your shallow role is but a symptom of thoughts inside
Don't say you must play that role to define yourself

Now space and time seem to decline
See the sky behind the wave
Internal worlds reveal how
Thoughts can descend like a falling rain

Then you will find that your shallow role is but a symptom of thoughts inside
Don't say you must play that role to define yourself

Ride beyond time and you'll know
That new thoughts descend now
Fly beyond time and you'll know

I am at one with all things
When you measure your thoughts you will find that i have no form

A law of nature undefined
Revealed now
Open the gate, step outside the frame

Then you will find that your shallow role is but a symptom of thoughts inside
Don't say you must play that role to define yourself

Ride beyond time and you'll know
That new thoughts descend now
Fly beyond time and you'll know

    General CommentYet another masterpiece by The Scars. As evolution designed our minds with cerebral cortex etc, our minds also developed ability to influence everything with our thoughts. I have commented on some other SS songs and referred to a book called The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, which is a great introduction to the term Epigenetics, and how newfound biology infuse quantum theory in the search for explanation of life - buy it if you are interested in these topics!

    "A law of nature undefined
    Subtle force we find at play
    A door to thoughts revealed now
    Open the gate, step outside the frame"

    A new law of nature; our consiousness, or rather, the will of ourselfs. Our subconsicous mind is yet too be understood, if the subconsious and consious align and have a common goal, what we define as matter will change in accordance - a part of quantum mechanics.

    Basically, the two last verselines state we have to abandon indoctrinated thoughts and false knowledges we have been accepting over thousand of years; and see things from a newfound, but more correct perspective.

    The overall meaning of this song as I understand it, is too get people to realize that knowledge that has been accepted for hundreds of years is in itself, wrong. Correct knowledge has now been added to the pool, it is high time to abandon the old approach to the universe and how we see ourselfs and our place in it. Step outside the frame.

    General CommentWhile I agree with almost all of what you've said, I'm not sure about the "correct knowledge" part. My personal belief is, knowledge can't be right or wrong, for there is no such thing. Everything is what it is, and if you perceive it to be something, then so it is. If someone else perceives it differently, who's to say which is truly "right"? But yes, I do believe it's about time to see we're all one entity, split into individual beings.
    I'll have to check out that quantum mechanics book, also.

    Cheers for SS!

    General CommentKnowledge in itself has not a negative or positive value, but truth and falsehood exist, as they are not human values - but how we view the current natural laws. For example, I could claim that binary code does not exist - but hey, we are still on this website which could not have been here without bindary code. What I just said, is knowledge, as you know(-ledge) that I have just expressed that binarycode does not exist. That does not make the content of the claim "true". "Correct knowledge" are facts like, Humans are, if you zoom in enough - just particles. "Correct knowledge" can also imply something, as, "Humans in their current state would never have evolved to their exact current state if water did not exist".

    "If someone else perceives it differently, who's to say which is truly "right"?"

    You cant have two truths that crosses eachothers theories, and still claim both to be correct. But I think you misunderstood me, it is not as if you cannot look at things in different perspectives. Look at the situation of raising a child. Is it overall "right" to hit a child? That is a matter of perspective and moral. Knowledge can be acted upon, in making the choice of should I or not hit the child. My own take on this situation, is that a moral that is based upon knowledge, is the correct one. "Correct" is basically the optimal answer for an multiple answer-test.
    You should not drive a car, unless you know how you should drive a car, in accordance to safety, comfort and joy of other persons, passengers and yourself. This type of information is gradually starting to develop itself as more research is done.

    I had little time to say this before class, but I will check on this from time to time if anyone comments - I will gladly take more time to give a more precise and articulated answer.
