Re: Consciousness

No one to shut up..so any shutting up would be no thing shutting up....known when the no thing that is apparently saying no thing dissolves and silence remains as always. All knowledge informs the illusory reality of a known knower, there is only “knowing” by the only knowing there is which is cons...

Re: Consciousness

Q: There's something else going on, when you talk, and there are spaces between the words. There is this spaciousness that takes over, and it's hard to concentrate on what you're saying. There's a tendency to think that that stillness is actually the true nature, but is it just another experience? ...

''Of what we cannot speak we must remain silent'' ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein philosopher.
So if you think it's worth quoting why don't you practice what he preached .

Re: Consciousness

Every thing that seems to be a thing is not a fixed thing but is part of flow of consciousness. That may well be the case, Belinda, but we still have to behave as though we are in a universe of matter. This matters, because we should know that we are each of us swept up in a universal flow of creat...

Re: What is love?

One of the most ignorant and dangerous results of the modern pursuit called education is the loss of even intellectually the difference between love and sex. Yes, Nick, but it can be a very short step from one to the other. One minute your dog is sleeping on your bed, the next, it's in your bed wit...

You have to exist to be aware of the concept God doesn’t exist.

Therefore God exists.
Does that principle apply to can openers?

Ultimately, you are the proof that God exists,

Re: What is Space?

Yes of course, without the awareness of an object, there is no object. Knowledge of an object is known by that which is aware of the object, not from the object itself, which is just a thought witnessed by awareness. So you are saying that my can opener plays no part in my awareness of it? Then wha...

No can opener ever opened a can, only thought opened the can looked on by awareness inseparable from the thought.
Thought may well be able to open cans but I think you will find that it still needs a can opener to do it.

Then you need to chuck it out, and find one that does.
I never eat anything from cans so I never need to open one, my can opener is ideal for that.

Real thinkers do not think.
That principle applies to many things. I have a real can opener in my drawer that won't open cans.

Re: What is Space?

That’s because the image is an appearance of the imageless. And not because your assertion is an expression of the meaningless? A concept you still seem unable to grasp because you continue to over think what is being posited. I'm very reluctant to grasp anything that is set on making an idiot of m...

Re: What is Space?

Pure Awareness...is the unchanging timeless still canvas on which all images move and change, appear,disappear and reappear. Inseparable from the canvas. I can't quite see how an image can disappear from the canvas while at the same time be inseparable from it. Still, I know from experience that yo...
