Re: message to hexhammer

Atla, don't be a wuss. Reject the disagreement! Unless you are of course convinced that under the weight of the currently extant evidence it is only reasonable that you accept the disagreement. (?) Maybe humbly accepting the disagreement was the most PC thing to do Careful... please be careful. PC ...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

I was brought there by another route, the only worldview compatible with quantum mechanics is nondualism. I think there is inescapable scientific evidence now. Of course I also have the nondual direct experience now, and also have experience with many unusual states of mind. But things can go wrong...

Re: proposition (1)

You (you being -1-) have it all backwards of course, like everyone else. You are the one asserting an extra claim here: that consciousness is individual. Of course. I explained it already, if you cared to read my posts. Here it is in a shorter version: I have two legs. Many people have legs. Dogs h...

Re: proposition (1)

But you hear the dog bark, despite it's over there, but you don't sense its consciousness. Or do you sense the dogs consciousness when he gets closer? I contest that you do. Consciousness is individual, and I assert there is no evidence to support the idea that consciousness is everywhere. But I sh...

Re: What is Panspiritism?

Despite all that, it could still be wrong though, as I mentioned earlier. Direct practice is overrated. (I bet it's correct though, and I find it difficult/impossible to even imagine how it couldn't be.) if you believe direct experience is over-rated then you do not endorse this philosophy, and you...

It really baffles me how people who only understand "time" in only one sense can waltz onto a philosophy forum.
It's because the time-deity only talks to you.

Re: What is Panspiritism?

Verify its truth how? I mean we can verify some things like the illusory nature of the individual self, but nondualism in general? This is the whole message. Consciousness and Reality would be one and the same phenomenon and each of us would have immediate access to the true nature of Reality. Henc...

Re: proposition (1)

But in reality, consciousness is everywhere, it's the same as the world, it's not "ours". With some training one can get rid of the above hallucination. (And of course 100% of all known evidence supports this view.) Lots of evidence supports this view to be false. If someone kicks his dog, do you f...

Re: proposition (1)

In Western philosophy English however, consciousness is usually used as a synonim for mind, because of our standard hallucination where we hallucinate that consciousness is "ours", that it's somehow limited to the individual too. -1-: You have anything to back up these claims? -Atla- : Consciousnes...

Re: 1 = 0 = infinity

A timeless Universe would be the same as a static one but that cannot be true of this one as it is in constant motion Whereas in a timeless Universe there would be no motion or entropy for everything would literally be frozen in time It really baffles me how people who only understand "time" in onl...

Fuuuuuuuck! You are so enlightened!

Re: What is Panspiritism?

I didn't read Russell. Nondualism is also an inherently circular description/view of the world, it's simply the only one that fits 100%, so our best guess is that it's probably correct. But not even that is certain (personally I find it difficult/impossible to even imagine how it could be incorrect...

You're not bright enough or wired right to tell anything, that was proven many times over Is it safe to assume that you have run out of technical depth (again), now that you are slinging ad-hominems?

Re: 1 = 0 = infinity

Particles come in and out of vacuum according to modern physics. Void projecting itself is no longer void, void "voids" itself effectively. Nothing projected is no longer nothing. Lol that kind of vacuum is NOT a void, it's simply some kind of field we can't access directly/fully. void "voids" itse...
