Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

It seems that the idea of the conscious perspective normal for the comic man continues to devolve into cave concerns like Donald Trump and what to teach etc. The assumption is that the goals of humanism are possible for cave life. Here is a basic list of humanistic values. They seem very worthwhile ...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

I still can't understand why the universe would respond to us regardless what anyone who EVER LIVED thinks about it. Nature as staged on this planet, is responsible for and totally indifferent to millions of exterminations from highest to lowest but for some reason we still retain this "religious" ...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

seeds And as this pertains to the topic of this thread, if the above mentioned disparity issue isn't in the forefront of the mind of Nick’s “cosmic man,” then his cosmic man is a total dud in my book. The true cosmic man is awakened man in contrast with cave man reacting in the psychological confine...

Oak trees purpose , in their quiescent way, to be modes of the entire natural biosphere. Oak trees are known for their participation in life as a whole, by their provision of homes for countless insects , food and shelter for birds, bats , squirrels, and down on the ground badger setts among the ro...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

It is clear that the strict secularists like Greta, Belinda, and Arising are closed to the meaning of conscious evolution and how it relates to the creation of the cosmic man Then again, it seems that you are closed to the idea that the universe, rather than physically manifesting a pre-existing co...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

It is clear that the strict secularists like Greta, Belinda, and Arising are closed to the meaning of conscious evolution and how it relates to the creation of the cosmic man, So even though it is rejected, I should at least introduce the idea of the conscious universe since without it, conscious ev...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Nick, you misidentify both God and the great beast. You actually believe that God is a metaphysical being. You are unaware of serious dangers from the capitalist establishments. If God were a being god would be a creature which is clearly not the case. Consider God to be pure consciousness within w...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Seeds Nick, with this “...only a rare few men...” business, you seem to be promoting the most exclusive religion I’ve ever heard of. (And by the way, are there not a “rare few women” that make it into this club? - other than Simone, of course. I suggest that you try to be a little more mindful of ho...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Greta If I am defending anything, it's attacks on logic and rationality in this "post fact" world. Yes, you re defending against the realistic experience of intuition and apriori knowledge not the result of logic and rationality. The world has suffered for centuries under the yoke of religion. Due t...

A_uk At the age Einstein was talking about he would have meant rote learning with no play learning but we don't do that in my country anymore, maybe they do it in yours but then that'd mean your 'great beast' only applies to your country which I suspect it does as I suspect you are from the US and t...

Re: A Woman's Inner and Outer Beauty

Very true. Individual circumstances create necessities. But do you believe in honoring ideals. Is there the ideal woman and the ideal man? If so then we must respect the difference. Is inner beauty a quality of the ideal woman? Can you give me an example of an ideal woman ? From literature or art o...

Re: Einstein and the Cosmic Man

Greta So the problem with education is not "secularisation", it's rationalisation. Too many people consuming too much from an ever-shrinking resource base. So resources are rationed/rationalised - music and art are the first to go, plus all the interesting and inspiring side stories that bring a syl...

Re: Rediscovering Plato’s Vision

Eodnhoj7 Just so I understand you better, do you discriminate between intuition defined as “the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.” And analysis defined as “the process of separating something into its constituent elements”? Are they related within...
