Re: How Our Brain Creates Delusion Of God

You did not address my full argument but merely jumped in and spew all sorts of nonsense. I don't give a damn there is no-you, no-dontaskme, whatever. In the situation of a madman-X, regardless of no-you, presence or whatever, what is critical is that empirical-physical-mental mad person who can si...

Re: How Our Brain Creates Delusion Of God

Therefore the experience of oneness and god conscious are a result of a mental illness. NO, it's not a result of mental illness at all. Who ever told you that has LIED and you have bought the lie. The whole premise regarding this subject topic is a false assumption that you are believing to be real...

Re: How Our Brain Creates Delusion Of God

In the situation of a madman-X, regardless of no-you, presence or whatever, what is critical is that empirical-physical-mental mad person who can simply take a machine gun and kill as many people due to his deranged brain/mind. Knowledge of being alive is dangerous because it implies it's opposite ...

Re: How Our Brain Creates Delusion Of God

Therefore Dontaskme is suffering from a mental illness. Assuming there is a separate actual real entity known as Dontaskme is the same delusion you are creating when you also project the idea that other people believe and make up an imaginary God and thus must have a mental illness. You too are cau...

Re: Reality is utterly independent of the human condition.

Rural India is NOT dominated by Buddhism nor any Buddhist superstitions. According to the 2011 census, 79.8% of the population of India practices Hinduism, 14.2% adheres to Islam, 2.3% adheres to Christianity, 1.7% adheres to Sikhism, and 0.7% adheres to Buddhism . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rel...

Re: How Our Brain Creates Delusion Of God

He felt some sort of a oneness with nature and sometimes claimed of being omnipotent, of being God himself. By association 'thought' is what creates the de-illusion of being something other than what is already being. The real presence (oneness) is here always, whether thought is present or not. Yo...

Re: Reality is utterly independent of the human condition.

Of course people entertained ideas similar to yours for thousands of years, and suffered the consequences of that superstitious ignorance in the form of perpetual incurable diseases, plagues, famines, wars, rampant infant mortality, life-spans of forty or less years, squalor, and ignorance. You rea...

Re: Reality is utterly independent of the human condition.

Yeah about 80-85% of humans never once think in their entire life. I think this is the single most important fact about human nature. Sad, isn't it? You should be sad about yourself. You don't seem to think beyond what your mind tell me, i.e. you do not think and reflect on why your mind is "deceiv...

Re: Reality is utterly independent of the human condition.

VA, do you know who H.L. Mencken was? He was not a philosopher but a journalist and an excellent observer of human nature. You have made me think of him, especially two things he wrote. One thing he wrote was: The average man never really thinks from end to end of his life. The mental activity of s...

Re: Reality is utterly independent of the human condition.

What apple on what table? Either there is an apple on a table or there isn't. If there is an apple on a table, seeing it cannot be an illusion. If there is an illusion of an apple being on a table, there is no apple on the table. You are essentially saying, "there is an apple on a table you see, bu...

Re: Reality is utterly independent of the human condition.

Perception makes no decisions. It is totally passive and can only present to consciousness exactly what is seen, heard, felt, tasted or smelled exactly as they are perceived. Interpretation of what is seen, in human beings, is a process of conceptualization and reason about what is perceived. Where...

Re: Reality is utterly independent of the human condition.

You were duped by an inherent "programmed" to facilitate your survival. The natural decision of your primal mind is to veer to the 'safer' judgment in case of uncertainty. Perception makes no decisions. It is totally passive and can only present to consciousness exactly what is seen, heard, felt, t...

Re: common sense & the sun

Nope. I don't believe in abiogenesis. It's good to begin with an agreement. Surely you don't believe humans just appeared suddenly 200,000 years ago out of no where?? However, if you believe in the theory of evolution, the human conditions-as-it-is can be traced back to emerged-one-celled living th...
