Re: Closing Imagined Explanatory Gaps

It seems that if there was only this One Consciousness then you would have access to things outside of you. You should have access to everything. Outside of you comes from Inside of you. Inside of you comes from Outside of you. You is a two way mirror reflecting yourself everywhere and nowhere as e...

Re: proposition (1)

All our deeds, emotions, thoughts, creeds – and whatever else we are trying to relate ourselves with – are expression of Consciousness which exercises its possibilities in order to realise itself. I don't think consciousness has a goal or a plan - as I see it, it's not doing anything, but it simply...

Re: Closing Imagined Explanatory Gaps

" Reality – that which we connote in our Western patriarchal culture when we speak of reality – is an explanatory assumption, an imagined domain of independent entities that we use in order to give universal validity to our explanations of our experiences."

Re: Perception

There is no direct answer to why there is consciousness except to say probably Why not ? All phenomena exist within Nature so there is a direct answer / rational explanation for them even if it is not known Minds cannot know everything of course but the very fact something actually exists means it ...

Re: Perception

Lacewing: it's not a belief system because it's based on first person subjective experience. :lol: Experience of what? Of Divinity (the Absolute) in a non theistic fashion. Using meditation, contemplation and self-inquiry. Non dualism in effect. The ancient non dualists knew the true nature of Cons...

Re: Perception

And that's all there is to understand about SELF. . aka ''I AM'' Everything else is just a belief...aka a fictional imagined story...aka knowledge. Why do you NOT think the concept of SELF and I AM are beliefs? Are those not the biggest beliefs of all? Consciousness and awareness...and how we defin...

Re: Do you consider consciousness -

Consciousness is the empty container, I.e., Nothing....that is infinite and eternal that contains everything. It is not an epiphenomenon of brains. Brains and neuroscience occur within Consciousness.

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

There is no knowledge of the thinker of thought because the thinker is a thought too I can just about understand this as a concept [ it is very counter intuitive ] but I do not think it is how reality actually is Everything cannot merely be an illusion arising out of nothing because then it would l...

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

You ARE the Awareness..aka Consciousness. How would it be "outside" of us??? I know I am a conscious awareness, I also know there is at least one other awareness conscious like me but DAM, and presumably you, appear to be claiming that there is only one Awareness in reality and in fact it and that ...

Re: Locked Mind Thought Experiment

Except of course if what you you say is true then you couldn't know it is as what you say is just a thought. That is, Kant would then be right and any idea about what the Noumena is, Awareness, a Sim 'God', etc is just metaphysical wishful thinking. Unless of course I have got the wrong end of your...

Re: Would a naturalistic view of god be beneficial during our present animal extinction event?

I am a Gnostic Christian and that is a part of our ideology. If you do not see god in all, you will never find god at all, --- is how I sometimes put it. Are you a Gnostic? Regards DL No, I'm a fully awakened non-dualist. Consciousness (God), is the only thing in existence...based on personal first...
