#116 Pt 2 – Breaking Down Abstract Ideas: The Causation Of Consciousness & The Fountain Of Existence With Jack Thomas


Jack of the Just Conversations podcast returns for part 2 of the deep dive into the concept of good & evil, consciousness, “the fountain of existence”, identity & more – continuing the very abstract discussion!


So for this week’s part, the conversation on consciousness continues but please be advised on a trigger warning, as rape is mentioned as an example during the discussion. For clarity, the rest of their conversation tackles abtract ideas, the equalisation of the universe, how the universe may have started, the causation of consciousness, the “fountain of existence”, free will & determinism, one’s self and more!


In case you missed it, part 1 of their chat started with the “passive apocalypse” and the polarising political system in America before delving into the main conversation topic; the concept of “good & evil”. Mike & Jack discuss whether “good” or “evil” even exist, as well as the historical retelling of events that alter perception, whether or not intent can affect the “goodness” of an action, religion’s impact of the perception of evil, heaven & hell and consciousness!
