Re: Reality is an Emergence

at the least I am not an intellectual robot or nerd. Yes, you are getting close. Conceptual poetry can be written by robots and nerds. It is conceptual, not emotional. Here's Craig Dworken - Poetry expresses the emotional truth of the self. A craft honed by especially sensitive individuals, it puts...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour. —William Blake The above makes sense and stirs one's psyche but ultimately we have to justify any decision or conclusion that is to be drawn regarding reality. I still thi...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

It is the same with Islam and Muhammad which had inspired evil prone Muslims to kill more than 200 million non-Muslims since Islam emerged. These Muslim jihadists definitely believed Allah will bring them to cross over to Paradise with a promised of 72 virgins and also virgin-boys if they prefer su...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

Here is where Tantric is viewed as evil and not Buddhism-proper or Hinduism proper; Let me give you my general impression of Ram Bomjon. At the beginning he was really cute. Sitting in the fire, he was downright sexy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foJb1KHo7sM . Now he is old and fat and I can't ...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

[ https://www.quora.com/Why-do-many-Hindus-view-Tantrism-as-evil Tantrism (aka Tantric yoga or just Tantra) is often perceived as evil because, at least in medieval times, Tantrikas were seen as sorcerors, and many tantras were seen as black magic: rituals to gather or manipulate supernatural power...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

Whatever School of Buddhism they and he claimed to belong to, they are not Buddhism proper but merely a bastardized form Buddhism. Anyone can claim to be related to Buddhism, but what they profess as related to Buddhism must be in alignment with Buddhism proper, i.e. the core principles, doctrines,...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

I was following the News of the Buddha Boy when he first emerged till he started a following. Was not aware his monks wore blue. My first view is that boy should not be associated with Buddha at all. As with all past [not present] religions in alignment with believers expectations, there is a need ...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

Who do you think understands life better: an academic psychologist who attends seminars and presents papers or a street boy who is looking to sell his butt to make a few bucks?

Re: Reality is an Emergence

My understanding of conceptual art is sufficient where I have linked its definition before. Note the difference between 'angst' [subliminal] and conscious fear and anxieties. If 'mortality' is a conscious fear or anxiety for you, then you are suffering from a mental illness, i.e. thanatophobia. Thi...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

Re Information overload, that is merely a concern and uneasiness, there is no direct link to an existential threat. The 'angst' I referred to is more towards 'existential angst' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angst Heidegger and Kierkegaard angst is related to anxiety to fear and ultimately to the s...

Re: Reality is an Emergence

Your denial on the grounding of human behavior to DNA [& RNA] is based on ignorance. Surely you cannot deny all your primal instincts, emotions and crude reasonings are driven by faculties established from the human genetic codes. Even the formation of the neo-cortex and prefrontal cortex is genera...
