Re: Subconscious Fear of Death - the Root of Religions

Thus my point; The root cause of all religions is the subconscious fear of death. Buddha eventually discovered that by facing his conscious fear of life, a human being actually faces his subconscious fear of death. Through the filter of life, this union of the conscious and the subconscious, the ou...

Re: Is Free Speech Worth Defending?

You write of what not to do and I am writing what is essential to do. At some point they are not different. Can you see why? Samsara and nirvana exist as the only two possible aspects of one coin, minted of the same metal. As the precursor to wisdom, equanimity ventures more into the direct, non-du...

Re: The Advantage of Censorship

Jewish folks censor out the word “God,” to advantage. “To be” rates the same unspoken awe. Modern New Age theory asserts "I am God." Modern secularism asserts that We, the Great Collective, the Great Beast, are God. I can fully understand why some avoid this with a passion. However "to be or not to...

Re: The Advantage of Censorship

Walker I may be wrong but I read this suggesting the still mind of a dog which just responds to life in a non-conceptual way without thought is the evolutionary goal for Man. Is this true? You have yet to do in order to know, as suggested, thus speculation about knowing has no substance. When ident...

Re: Is Free Speech Worth Defending?

Walker The effortless repetition of simple changes reality, first non-conceptually and then conceptually. Still mind stills thoughts. No thoughts, no mind. Reality therefore changes in a non-conceptual way. I may be wrong but I read this suggesting the still mind of a dog which just responds to lif...

Re: The advantage of censorship

For the sake of the good of philosophy do we have the obligation to intentionally use free speech in ways that do not intensify negative emotions? If we do, how can we do it even if Shaw was right and in reality we are incapable of it? You inquire with, how ? This requests a method. Every root phil...
