Re: The Evolution of Religion

The only valid and sustainable evolution of religion is extinction You are content to imagine being an atom of the great beast which defines morality. Some open to conscience to experience what it means to be human. "The image of the Beast conveys a great deal of what Plato wanted to say about demo...

Re: The Evolution of Religion

V A For the future, humanity must evolve to the ability to manage and module the inherent unavoidable primal subliminal fears without attaching to any religion [institutional or otherwise] but merely adopting a generic 'open-source' spiritual method. Our essential difference. You believe that the br...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

Hi Alex Now, when you look at the room/scenery in front of you ... do the colours that you perceive "come from" somewhere? Do you actually perceive a source or - once you open your eyes - are they simply here/now? I am not asking for a theory of light (white light and its components etc etc) nor am ...

Re: The Evolution of Religion

The development from a religion of fear to a moral religion is a great step in peoples lives. And yet, that primitive religions are based purely on fear and the religions of civilized peoples purely on morality is a prejudice against which we must be on guard. the truth is that all religions are a ...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

DaM Awareness can never be unaware..there is no such state as unaware, there is only aware. Within awareness arises anything one can possibly think of...all imagined of course, and yes, the imagination is real. Complexity and logic are all within the dream story as concepts known, known by not-a-thi...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

Do fractions exist or are they just part of a dream? I know I can divide ONE into two halves, four quarters, eight eighths and so on. In order to define a fraction we must have knowledge of ONE and and the meaning of fractions and how they relate to one another.. We cannot know what an eighth is wit...

Re: Morality Games

There must be a special collective doomed to burn in hell for denying the human need for competition: and the love for struggle in one form or another: Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch wrote: "Chess is a form of intellectual productiveness, therein lies, its peculiar charm. Intellectual productiveness is one o...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

DaM The I AM is one thing, one being within which everything appears. So the skandhas are just the appearances of this oneness. Even the sense of otherness, aka twoness/duality is an appearance within the same oneness. Appearances, are what awareness is aware OF... which are inseparable from the awa...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

DaM I really don't know anything about God, nor do I know anything about myself, except to know that ''I AM'', and that's as far as it goes for me...I I’m not being critical here but just asking how you know this. For example Buddhism suggests we have no unified I but function as five skandhas chan...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

DaM Is life worth living? For those caught psychologically attached to the world and they are good responsible people, then it is worth living. But you strike me as a sensitive soul who needs a greater experience of meaning than what the flat worm is capable of. Consider those who have had experienc...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

DaM At the moment, I'm only seeing the human character on this stage we call life as being nothing more than a flatworm wearing a tuxedo. I agree. I’ve read that society can be described as a slug. It is the same idea. My question is if the slug can produce individuals whose being is closer to consc...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

DaM I've no idea about anything except what I make up. No idea what is awareness or consciousness or mind. Except beliefs, ideas, and imaginations. And I don't even know what they are either. It's all the same not knowing nothingness. But suppose the body of God, our universe, is a six dimensional b...

Re: Wholeness and Fragmentation

DaM Within the dream of separation, God aka no-thing aka everything is always and ever all allowing for every action, because it's totally unbounded and free to do so. For there is no action without a reaction, and vice versa, and yet every action is nought but a unitary action ..why? because realit...
