Re: What is Panspiritism?

And your lie that I "dismiss all of mysticism", even though I made it abundantly clear that I fundamentally subscribe to it, well.. You do not subscribe to it. If you did you would not argue it is speculation. is this not obvious? You like the theory, but you don't believe that it originates in kno...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

No human can have absolute certainty, ever. That's not about nondualism or Nagarjuna, but about anything really. Please prove it. I'm with Aristotle on this. Certain knowledge is identical with its object. If you can refute this statement then I'll have to back down. Otherwise I'd say your view is ...

I don't agree.
I wouldn't expect many people here to agree and feel this is what Walker was getting at.

You are now just making a public spectacle of yourself. It's not my problem and I shall spend no more time on it.

Re: Just another belief system.

I cannot grasp why you are unable to read a book on the topic. Your confusion of Humanism and non-dualism is a basic mistake easily rectified. Your confusion over the Perennial philosophy suggests you've not even heard of Huxley's book by this title. You can't expect me to engage on this level. Your...

The above statement does not make any sense.
I think Walker was being critical of the standards of rigour here, and I find his comment justified.

Re: Just another belief system.

It seems to me, Skepdick, that you make no attempt to understand what I'm saying and instead twist the words so you can argue against views I don't hold. I'm struggling to grasp what your posts are about or the point you're trying to make. I feel I have no option but to ignore them. I would rather m...

Re: Just another belief system.

In the spirit of "Science is not a belief system" (which is to be understood as "experience is foundational") it seems that you got that exactly backwards. Got what backwards? Are you speaking to me? The ratio of scientific enquiry to philosophical dogmatism is not very healthy on this forum. Scien...

Re: Just another belief system.

No, non-duality is not a belief system. And, in the spirit of Philosophy Now, the statement requires no supporting rationale, facts, or examples. Blimey. Another post I can agree with. There is something odd about this forum. It's the oddest philosophy forum I've been on. It's like many folks here ...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

We have all of modern science, and every philosophical insight ever, at our fingertips. But they were giants and we are standing on their shoulders. Yes. But nobody has ever improved on Nagarjuna's metaphysics or found another fundamental theory that even works. So we're not much standing on his sh...

Re: Just another belief system.

Nondual reality is a tricky sticky trap for the sense of being a separate being. Being can negate everything even key concepts like mind, consciousness, the witness, ultimate subject etc... yet being can not negate Source the undying, unborn wellspring that has to be....THIS unknown source of all k...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

Just ignore Skepdick btw, it's a long story but he will probably never understand anything you say or even anything he himself says. This was my plan. Thanks for this comment since I now feel better about it. I mean that there is no "extra, unique feeling or sensation or quality" associated with th...

Re: Let's talk about morphic resonance

I wonder if you're slightly underselling morphic resonance. It says a lot more than just this suggestion about flock-behaviour.

Re: What is Panspiritism?

Because my "strong view" is in strong agreement with your view. I am literally agreeing that Perenialism is the same as all non-dualism. This would be why I'm disagreeing with you. Here are the three characteristics of Humanism from a humanist website - trusts to the scientific method when it comes...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

I cannot understand your question here. It seems to make no sense. Could you rephrase it? You observed that all non-dualist philosophies teach the same thing underneath the language and approach (non-dualism). So that thing underneath all the language, that you observe and recognise. That nameless ...
