Re: Music

He’s not in her dimension. I know of none who are. He’s still good even though so many of his songs sound alike. They were a couple for awhile, he was in the nervous hospital for awhile, and all that was on a road that led to a pretty good now. I knew a fellow back then who was his twin, his doppelg...

Re: ~ Philosophically, You Are Going to be Sooooo Screwed ~

Heads up, Japan. When they get the human rights they will want to vote, to drive cars, dress the way they like and probably give birth, which could be done internally with the proper test-tube cocktails. But if they say screw the synergy it could mean their voice in design creation will run to termi...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

It hinges on the word, “exist.” Which hinges on the question who exists? The I AM itself is Maya, illusion. YOU exist, but not as a thought. . Under these conditions you exist only as thoughts. You exist as the thoughts of others who are creating you from the words formed by your thoughts, and by w...

Under these conditions, you only exist as thoughts.

Re: Beauty and Brains in Chess

Like life it’s loaded with metaphors, isn’t it. The king is the weakest yet he shapes all the strategy. Unlike the king, the lowly pawn can become the strongest weapon. The court (cabinet) protects the king but sometimes a wild god, a creator of thought and motion, will sacrifice its entire court to...

Re: The thoughts of Nisargadatta Maharaj

That’s an amazing response. Rare. However, it’s not my rule. It’s a rule of rationality. Ask around. That things may stray is not cause for things to stray. The end-point of the dualistic, intellectual self-enquiry method is to fit the absolute into a frame, and then at some point in the future (sag...

Don’t you want to know why he wrote that? Don’t you think it remarkable that an academic would write such a thing about an uneducated peasant?
