There is no direct access to anything known, because all that is known is known by the consciousness you already are.
That's direct enough for me.

But then you wouldn't know anything.
Knowledge is but an illusion, although I can't say I know that for sure.

It's impossible to not conceptualise the non-conceptual.
I shall not waste my time trying, then.

There is no concept for emptiness,
And yet:
Awareness is just another concept for emptiness.
Is there a name for the concept of making it up as you go along?

Re: Message for the virtually nonexistent

Yes, you seem to be talking to one hopelessly ignorant person. One that has gathered up his wits into a paper bag and flushed it down the toilet whilst adhering to a fantasy world of his own construction; a world with no reference to reality, what is evident, or what succumbs to reason or logic. He...

So far he has been whipping to heel the fanatical government of Iran with sanctions.
Then someone had better tell the Iranian government they have been whipped to heel, because they are not behaving like they've been whipped to heel.

Re: A ROLE MODEL FOR WOMEN

the verdict of empirical science today is that it was all BULLSHIT, that is, gender is NOT socially constructed. But the concept of human rights is, and how they are distributed. Fat chicks with foul mouths, boy's haircuts, hairy legs and armpits The classification of these things as un-feminine is...

Re: Let's talk about morphic resonance

Please don't just post to attack Dr. Sheldrake. It is against my principles to attack a man who is not here to be offended by what I say about him. That would be a waste of time. Ad hominem attacks are not helpful Even so, it still seems pointless making them if their target is unaware of them. I w...

Mr. Good

Mr. Good is a very nice man who lives at 6 Paradise Street. Mr. Good bought 6 Paradise Street a long time ago. Houses cost a lot of money and Mr. Good had to get a mortgage before he could buy his house. You can’t see a mortgage but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Ask a grownup about philosophy if...

Re: An act of God

In this parable we see how easy it is to let preconceived theories shape the way we view evidence instead of letting the evidence shape our theories…. We only see how easy it is because the fictitious scenario was constructed to give that impression. Anyone can write a story where the characters co...

Re: An act of God

Nature, according to Naturalism , is impersonal, has no intentions, does not plan, direct or control. It just exists. It is not even capable of knowing or caring what comes out of it. It's just another form of random chance. Perhaps Lacewing isn't talking about nature according to Naturalism. Maybe...
