My friends and I were recently talking about alternative philosphical theories, and my one particulare friend mentioned what he likes to call the "Blob In the Jar" theory. The theory states that the human consciousness is merely the unconscious thoughts of something being manipulated by an outside force. All outward consciousness outside that of the consciousness being manipulated is false, despite the awareness of anyone NOT being manipulated. This idea is manifested through the idea that the consciousness being manipulated is simply a blob in a jar, and that reality as we know it is simply the blob's hallucination.

So it came to the (rather stupid) question of, who is the blob in the jar?
If 4 more people tell me to go back to writing The Vanishing Point, I will.

Is this about the jar of bull semen they found on the train?

There's a similar philosophical argument for God, that since all we see and experience are waves and electrical impulses, the fact that there is order to the universe suggests there's something keeping it in that order. Rather interesting, but doesn't sway me.

Conversely, there's a similar philosophical theory called "brain in a vat," which is the philosophical origin of the movie "The Matrix." The only logical flaw is that how do we know we have the proper conception of a vat?

Lol, Ironically. I read 'Blow job in a car' instead of what you said.
Anyone up for the storychanging game?

As for the blob in the jar, I have to honestly say I don't get the analogy.

I would not, could not, in a box.
I could not, would not, with a fox.
I will not get them in a house.
I will not get them from a mouse.
I will not get them here or there.
I will not get them anywhere.
I do not get many hand nor blowjobs.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

I think the logical flaw is that "The Matrix" is still being mentioned in the new millenium. Head exploder, right there.
But really, what would the vat be? Three letters creating a new item.

I like that theory. I was once thinking that there is no way to prove that the way you percieve things is the same as they way someone else percieves them. Like if they say the apple is green, maybe they said blue but the matrix machine makes you THINK they said green.

Deep stuff. My bassist and I knock hours of nonsense talk out of it. He's a deep guy.

So if reality is the unconscious thoughts of a blob, what happens when the blob has a wet dream?
