Re: Coronavirus Craziness

Your responses are wasted on me, they are just meaningless words heard as blah blah blah. To be honest, I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about ever, so I don't know why you even bother responding to me. If I could just grasp what ever it is you are trying to say to me then I guess we ...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

I understand being aware of my Redness Experiences and I understand that I am my Redness Experiences. Ok, I follow that. But I Experience Redness as existing somewhere apart from me where I am an independent Observer Experiencing the Redness. But I don't follow this. How is Redness somewhere apart ...

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

People are dying horribly around you and you trust in God for what? To spare you? Is that all it's about? If there is a God, then God has already played his or her hand and it's the hand of evil. It sounds to me like you trust an evil God. If you are spared then you're being spared by an evil God. ...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

I know that I am the Light (Conscious Light not Electromagnetic Light) that I Experience. But saying that, doesn't solve the Problem of why it Seems like I'm looking at the Light as an Observer. That which is being looked at is what is looking. That is all that can be known about that. . I know wha...

Re: God and COVID-19

After reading about some of the horror stories going on in New York and other places in the world from COVID-19 right now--people drowning in their own blood-filled lungs, medical personnel getting sick while trying to help others--it really makes me wonder what kind of "god" presides over such hor...

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

There are too many coincidences that point to this virus being released deliberately. ... No there aren't. You need to grasp the difference between coincidence and causality. You have to do your own research on why NOW ... What you call 'research' is confirmation bias and selective reading. This re...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

But the known is not known by the known...ok? Sure! Thanks, and have a nice day! But think about it, can a known thing know anything? There is no thing knowing a thing. If a known thing can know...then explain how it knows, and what it knows? "My religion is not deceiving myself." Jetsun Milarepa 1...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

While looking at your hand the hand is known. But the hand is not what is looking, the hand is being looked upon. No hand has ever been seen in the same sense the seer has never been seen. The hand is just an idea, it's a concept that has no concept of it's existence. It doesn't exist outside of it'...

That which is being looked at is what is looking.

That is all that can be known about that.

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

In essence all knowledge can do is point to the illusory nature of reality. That is apparently true for what knowledge is to you. It is mistake to assume all others suffer from the same limitations as oneself. I'm not accusing you of anything. If that is what you think knowledge is you cannot help ...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

While I cannot deny the concept RED is known, I have no idea who or what is knowing / seeing RED. In other words, I cannot see or know the seer and the knower of RED I believe you, at least provisionally. So long as you understand that exempts you from any further discussion of what the nature of p...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

Seeing the colour red is an experience I am apparently having, but I have no idea who or what is having that experience or why. What do you mean by, "I," in the phrases, "I am apparently having," and, "I have no idea?" I suspect the "who or what," is the, "I," you used in those phrases. Yes, the I ...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

The redness only exists as a concept known. It's a mental construction. No one has ever SEEN the colour RED. Now you tell me. Where were you when I was stopped for driving through a red light? I suspect your argument would not have flown in court. Who and what is seeing the colour RED? While I cann...

Re: Some People Might Not Have Conscious Experiences

Of course an animal cannot explain the color red, just as you can't. One has to actually have that experience to understand and explain it. It won't matter to you, but for those who actually see the color red and are interested in it's nature, it can easily be explained. It's nothing that should bo...
