Re: Einstein's train. All change, please.

In other words, we can never directly know or experience (as it really is) the exact nature of the noumenal-like underpinning of reality because any attempt to do so instantly transforms it into phenomena. Quite an unfortunate dilemma for physicists, wouldn’t you agree? For their inquiries perhaps ...

Re: Einstein's train. All change, please.

You guys seem to be demonstrating how hard it is to avoid what Bohr was referring to in the quote offered by uwot in the OP: “We must be clear that when it comes to atoms, language can be used only as in poetry. The poet, too, is not nearly so concerned with describing facts as with creating images...

Re: Einstein's train. All change, please.

Assuming that the Copenhagen-like and Kantian-like interpretations of reality are correct. People often use Kant to justify the Copenhagen, and use the Copenhagen to justify Kant, but that's actually circular reasoning. I don’t think its circular reasoning to point out a particularly interesting pa...

Re: Einstein's train. All change, please.

“Legendary King Midas never knew the feel of silk or a human hand after everything he touched turned to gold. Humans are stuck in a similar Midas-like predicament: we can't directly experience the true texture of quantum reality because everything we touch turns to matter.” In other words, we can n...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

First of all, do you actually believe that Consciousness... (something that has probably been in existence literally FOREVER – trillions and trillions of years prior to the creation of our particular universe) ...still hasn’t yet been able to figure out (discover) what it really is? Secondly, how d...

Re: Einstein's train. All change, please.

While what you say is true it only proves that there is no way of referring to it in a way that does it justice. Agreed. What words could we employ which makes specific the true nature of what's going on at that level? But refer to it we must as Bohr understood and use the best possible approximati...

Re: WHY DO YOU THINK WE ARE HERE? WHY DO WE EXIST?

I know this is a basic question! But why our we here, most people go through there lives not questioning the reason why? People like us have ideas, views an urge to understand what this is all about? Do you think we are ever going to find the answer? We are here as God (Consciousness) experiencing ...

Pretty wild, innit? Very wild - three mad quarks zipping around each other at almost light speed to create fixed spherical channels around itself. I like the way atoms, cells, solar systems and galaxies all have stuff organised around a controlling central zone. Governments, cities and money market...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

Well, your premise is flawed. To speak petty, I'm still waiting for you to see that. :roll: Sri Ramana Maharshi was not a mimic. Absolutely nowhere in this thread did I ever state that Sri Ramana Maharshi was a mimic. In which case, other than for the purpose of creating a side-tracking obfuscation...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

Again, what did he teach that set him apart from the standard array of Hindu gurus? His teaching was His stillness (no interior monologue) which was transmitted via His presence. For those who didn't "get it", it was transmitted as succinctly as possible through words. This thread would probably ha...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

...isn’t it a strange irony that if we were to fully mimic the lives of some of our most important spiritual icons, humanity would cease to exist. Mimicking doesn’t guarantee results, as most kids collecting major league baseball cards and playing in little league baseball will learn. Hmmm, I occas...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

The appropriate metaphors have been provided in the previous posts. The "why" will be concluded via direct experience of what is being revealed. Mind/thought leads simply to more mind/thought. Find that which does not change. That is the "answer"/conclusion. What I have found that does not change i...

Re: Why the Ramana Maharshi model for humanity is flawed.

The point is that other than being a particularly charismatic purveyor of standard Hindu dogma (most of which is mythological nonsense), is there anything else about his teachings that truly represent something earth shattering? Your question was, what are we to make of it. Well, I keep dancin' and...
