Re: Being grounded!

Grounding is a comfort! Anyone who throws it away is a fool or a spiritual seeker, and both to some. Losing everything but your life will rip the ground right out from under your feet, which is a heavy dose of emptiness. * But there’s a bright side in the dark energy. Life goes on. :D A World Caught...

Re: Universe can't be infinite.

There's room for the senseless and all else in infinity.

After all, we are in the middle of a Dark Matter Hurricane, or maybe it's the edge we're in the middle of, and the edge of the middle is worse, like the edge of a hurricane eye.

Re: In Your Face

What about learning through failure? There’s learning through failure, and there’s subsidizing failure. Whatever you subsidize, you get more of. Subsidize failure and you get more failure. This is why the refrain, “Too big to fail,” corrupts a system. Failure initiates a beneficial reset. Temporary...

Re: On a roll, out of control

I understand your point, however James likely isn’t even on Trump’s strategy radar. When speaking with the press, the president is merely behaving appropriately towards the boorishness of James, by means of objective presidential standards of propriety, decorum, and constitutional authority. When Ja...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

We exist only in relationship. Relationship is dualistic. The meaning and purpose of duality, is love. We exist to love. By so doing, we extend the life of the individual. Extending the life of the individual via love and care, benefits the group by educating youngsters with what they need to know. ...

In Your Face

Everyone needs a safe space for the body, but to learn at a university, a student needs a safe space for the body, and also a challenging space for the mind. It helps to know the distinction between challenging and unsafe. The students in this video are not snowflakes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

My definition of philosophy is based on induction from experience.
It is like
'change is the only constant' as observed and inferred from experience.
Then it follows that without one who observers and infers, there is no constant.

Re: One Must Die and Die Again Until One Becomes a god Through God.

In Buddhism, human capacity is required for enlightenment, and enlightenment is the aim. Gods die too, and lack the human capacity for enlightenment.
