Re: God's Unliftable Rock

Not sure how I invited verbal happyslapping Hexhammer – if I did – it was not intentional. I do like to challenge others, but not slashing and vulgarly attacking their ideas without giving reasons for doing so. For instance, Aero's kitty comment. It seems to be a weak/questionable analogy to my init...

Re: God's Unliftable Rock

I must say, I never found much pleasure nor use in those who have only shit to say to others, as if their insults somehow make them entertaining in an otherwise slowly desensitized world. I mistook your initial comment Greylorn as a comment against philosophy in general and how my "meaningless, absu...

Greylorn
Touché.

Now the real question is: does this absurdity lead us anywhere?

Re: God's Unliftable Rock

Can a square be circle? Can a bachelor be a married man? As to these classic logical dilemmas, from a distance a square tower can look circular, and yes, a bachelor can be a married man if that is his name: Bachelor :shock: Just having fun. I know my answers to these very serious questions are ridi...

Re: God's Unliftable Rock

Yea, yea - same old replies to a nonsensical argument learned in a beginning philosophy class: Pseudo-Dionysius, Aquinas, Swinburne, Lewis, etc... The fun part about philosophy, is that we seek to stretch the incredible, open our minds, look from different angles, move in new directions, and so fort...

Re: Can you "feel" a thought?

I have asked myself this question before. The problem is, every time i try to feel a thought i get caught up thinking - something we often distinguish between. In some yogic traditions thought is considered a six sense. Thinking just being a different and more subtle kind of feeling just as hearing ...

God's Unliftable Rock

Can an all powerful God create an unliftable rock?

Sure,
by splitting into two
then three
and then ten thousand things -
at some point
a part of God will not be able to lift a pebble
much less a rock:)

Bubble

It's unknown how it happens, how the bubble arose. Some say motion, heat, desire. Others say just blind luck, the chance meeting of random events giving rise to it. Still others say GOD out there – or in some cases – in here: a need for self-expression/experience. However it happens, it happened. Th...

Re: Pure Consciousness?

Blessings, Thanks for the response Arising_uk. I am interested in the idea of pure consciousness being connected/associated/related with the base state of neural activity. What would that be like: dreamless sleep? Would consciousness activate the neural system beyond the base state? I have read a fe...

Re: Pure Consciousness?

That's probably because you've spent a long while learning to ignore the body. Blessings, While i have spent many years meditating, the truth of the matter is, we have these experiences all the time. We can be completely absorbed in thought to the point where all our senses are forgotten, the pains...

Re: What gives thought the right?

Thought and Consciousness are often intertwined,
but while thoughts imply consciousness
consciousness in itself (whatever that B)
is much deeper and more encompassing without thought.

Such as a simple
unfiltered
unlimited sensation -
having no perceptual reference
much less

What gives thought the right?

What gives a thought the drive
Will
Desire
to exist and be recognized –
to come into consciousness
and take over the mind?
