Re: The Concept of Death

There is the death of those whose existence is determined by fear & hope – and the death of those who associate it with the death of the dogs.

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

Answers to the who & where appear in meditations that aim at the fusion of micro- & macrocosm (self & surrounding) - more so, when combining eastern approaches with western (scientific) methods. The question "why" then becomes superfluous.

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

"Generally, a god would be an entity that by definition excludes other gods"

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

Besides Jehovah, Allah and the christian god, there are a few thousand more around (1700 only in India) and since they have about as many different characteristics - there is plenty to choose (and to blame:)

Re: Who- why- where are we ?

The quest itself seems to be the problem - Buddhists, Zen and Taoist thinkers claim that the answers are given, or Selfknowledge manifests, when abandoning the quest (questions)

Re: Another view of Consciousness

“Another view of Consciousness” has been criticised for being based on the Egyptian pantheon, but (nearly) all cosmologies would have served, as they present principal patterns of human consciousness.
