Re: Proof for Consciousness existing outside our brains

The brain is actually not inside the skull at all,the brain is a concept of consciousness,and concepts are invisible ideas the mind takes to be literal things in and of themselves.There is no person inside a body, there is only consciousness, and consciousness is not inside a brain which is just a c...

Re: How powerful is God?

Yet there is no way that you or anyone else can conceive of something even the scale of the Earth let alone the Sun with falling into abstractions rather than having a visceral sense of it. There is no 'you' or 'anyone else' to conceive, that is the limitation right there. The 'you' you speak of is...

Re: How powerful is God?

First we have to consider how powerful the Earth is, and then the Sun. That's as far as we need go, really. the cosmic mass limit. Only in so far as the limitation of the human experience in all it's self imposed restrictions it places upon itself ..as science and religion would have you believe is...

Re: How powerful is God?

There are no parts in reality Reality is composed of many parts though reality itself is a single state of existence albeit one that is in an eternal state of motion Only in the sense that that which appears to divide itself aka as and through words, aka language are the illusory appearance insepar...

Re: Does God Exist?

Words obviously require a mind to conceive them but the actual things that they describe are independent of minds And those things do not have to possess knowledge or understanding of their function either as that is not necessary This makes no sense to me surreptitious. I'm not saying you are wron...

Re: Consciousness is Non-local

Yes, and consciousness is not an experience... experiences are known after they have already happened..known upon reflection when consciousness becomes aware of itself as knowledge. . aka the ''knowing''. Consciousness is not a ''THING'', it's that which is aware of ''things'', therefore, cannot be ...

Re: How powerful is God?

You say "life/reality doesn’t ask questions." You and I are part of reality. We ask questions. Therefore your claim is wrong. There are no parts in reality. When that is seen by no one, then all questions cease. Questions that do arise pertain to the sense of a separate I ...and can only do so when...

Re: How powerful is God?

Please provide some evidence to substantiate the above claim. I consider what you wrote complete gibberish. I desperately need some evidence-based support to see any shred of truth or valid insight in your claim. Claims are made but no one to make a claim. Is the only power indeed. The unmoved move...

Re: How powerful is God?

Logic is not fictional. It is conceptual. Logic is of the intellect which is mental activity, made of pure concept. All Concepts are fiction as conceived by that which is inconceivable...aka the mind. Your entire argument is based on logic being fictional. All knowledge is fictional, knowledge in-f...

Re: Does God Exist?

I do not think matter and energy and time and space are concepts as they are not mind dependent and have actually existed long before minds ever did. Matter, energy, time and space are concepts, they are conceived knowledge, you could not speak or write about such knowledge without a knower...aka c...

Re: The Purpose of Philosophy

DaM Atrocities will never be eliminated in the world of duality, it’s a necessary part of conscious evolution. Balance and discernment is the key. There has to be war if there is to be peace, there has to conditioned love if there is to be uncondional love. There has to be balance. But must we be l...

Re: Does God Exist?

Saying that everything is not a thing makes no sense because it violates the law of non contradiction Also I do not see this I that is supposedly there when I am asleep and so I do not think it really exists There does not have to be anything there anyway apart from matter and energy and space and ...

Re: Does God Exist?

There is no such thing as absolute nothing. I’ve never said that, I’ve said there’s just everything which is not a thing. Who or what sees/knows the ‘I’ that thinks it does the seeing and knowing? What is still there when all thought ceases? What answer can be given without reverting to thought and ...

Re: Does God Exist?

Something has to exist in order to think that nothing exists. For nothing alone cannot think that nothing exists because something has to do the thinking. And that thing is a mind. Some minds can convince themselves they do not really exist but that is not evidence of anything other than flawed thi...

Re: Does God Exist?

The body is a concept, and the various functions of manifest existence are only concepts. Hearing, reasoning and contemplating are concepts. Inquiry into the ultimate nature of one’s own existence is even a concept. All other things are also concepts. Concepts give rise to the world, the separate so...
