Hi Red Rosearian,
Yes, I found some interesting commentary on what you say at the above link.
I think I understand what you mean when you use the term "quality of
consciousness" now. Essentially, you seem to be using the term to 'capture'
the small measure (or absence) of greed, hate, and delusion through which
Einstein's understanding of the SD was processed in comparison to much
larger measure of these same characteristics in Hitler. Point me in the
right direction if I am misunderstanding.

"Quality of consciousness." Interesting phrase.
BTW, nice web page you have.


PS: I also note the highly informative posting that Dallas provided
concerning 'consciousness'. Thanks.
