Re: proposition (1)

No, the mind is fundamental. Consciousness is a property of mind. Which comes first - the chicken or the egg ? :wink: We are all mincing words without a thought to reason. In other words, I believe none of us knows what we are talking about. In other words, we have strong opinions on things we care...

AlexW, what's the difference between mind and consciousness? They constantly co-exist. How do you separate the two?
Consciousness is prior to mind.
No, the mind is fundamental. Consciousness is a property of mind.

proposition (1)

All our deeds, emotions, thoughts, creeds – and whatever else we are trying to relate ourselves with – are expression of Consciousness which exercises its possibilities in order to realise itself.

Re: mind the mind

The reflection/projection capability of mind is the cause of many of its controversies – and their solution as well, as it can bring about a self-awareness that supersedes subjective-objective, internal-external & other dualisms. ----------------------------------------------------------------------...

Gaia

“Gaia” is the Greek word for a huge and complex organism – also known as nature – that has been adored by Homo throughout ages as mother and often as goddess as well. At least until Sapiens* proclaimed her to be a dumb mechanism, and himself, destined by genetics or genesis, her ruler, and of course...

Re: The Physical, Life, Consciousness, and The Human Mind—A Preface

You. The knower of the concept (''die'' ) cannot die or fail because it would have to be there in the ''death state'' to know that the known concept ''death'' has actually occured, in that the concept (''die'') was known to be a real event happening. And it's no good just saying you can know ''die'...

Re: The Physical, Life, Consciousness, and The Human Mind—A Preface

Long seeking it through others,
I was far from reaching it.
Now I go by myself,
I meet it everywhere.
It is just I myself,
And I am not itself.
Understanding this way,
I can be as I am. Chan masterTung-shan

Re: The Physical, Life, Consciousness, and The Human Mind—A Preface

Hey RC, has it ever occurred to you that the Universe is not rational...nor irrational ...? Why would it? Only human beings have the ability to reason. To attribute human nature to the entire universe is absurd. Of course, human beings are part of the universe, so at least that part is rational. It...

Re: Do what you will

The space/time of Will is here/now - and so is Selfrealisation.

Re: Do what you will

What is here called Self, is the core or coordinate of the mind/body - psyche/soma - relativity, and as such represents ones true nature, position and course in the universe (macrocosm). It is an individual (indivisible) awareness that demands from its beholder to act responsible. (Every act is powe...

Re: Do what you will

Self & Will are not the same, but when they complement each other a Self-awareness arises.

Hindu and Buddhist Initiates(inside travellers) say that it is beyond verbal grasp (which is why i use as few words as possible).
