Re: Oneness cannot be completely explained using words.

Here is your question again: Can "Oneness" and "Redness" be put into words or not? This is not a word-play - this is a yes/no question. That was no rhetorical question. You even emphasize a yes/no answer. Steve, you are very dishonest man. The above is a rhetorical question, even though I emphasize...

Re: Oneness cannot be completely explained using words.

You of course did ask a question. You must not be Conscious of your posts. This is from your own post: Can "Oneness" and "Redness" be put into words or not? This is not a word-play - this is a yes/no question. This sure seems like a question to me. Steve, do you know what a rhetorical question is? ...

Re: Oneness cannot be completely explained using words.

"Yes, Oneness cannot be put into words in the same way that Redness cannot be put into words". And in response to that I said: You just succeeded putting into words that which (apparently) can't be put into words. What was it that you put in to words, if it wasn't Oneness and Redness? So why would ...

Re: Oneness cannot be completely explained using words.

You are of course just playing word games because as a disrupter that's what you do. Please do not project your behaviour onto me. I am merely pointing out what you are DOING. How is my observation "disruptive" exactly? You can only say what you say by throwing out all the context that has gone on ...

Re: Oneness cannot be completely explained using words.

I don't understand this conclusion. Are you just playing semantical games? No. I am pointing out what happened. You put Oneness into the word "Oneness". Did you not? You put Redness into the word "Redness". Did you not? You did what you said cannot be done. TWICE! That's called a Performative contr...

Re: Oneness cannot be completely explained using words.

One cannot fully explain Oneness in words, just as one cannot fully explain feelings in words, however, the connection one feels when they realize Oneness is what allows one to recognize it. As soon as we use language to define The Source, we have tainted our understanding of The Source. When it co...

Re: In what sense is Descartes's dualism wrong?

why stop at 2 minds? is your disconnected mind that you had at 10 years old different from the disconnected mind that you have now? join the collective, obey the priest of your new mind... -Imp Two Minds makes sense because of the obvious duality of the Mind. There is the Physical Mind which is a T...

Re: The basic question of all philosophy is ?

The problem with, "why," as a fundamental question is that it always leads to an infinite regress. If you have children or have much experience with them, you certainly know there can never be an ultimate answer to the question, "why?" No matter how many time's you answer a child's question, such a...

Re: The basic question of all philosophy is ?

Can the perceiving mind really know the absolute truth of reality? I personally say NO because a perceived thing is by nature dynamic and forever changing, therefore cannot be an absolute truth. . I'm betting that it can know. But we may not like what we ultimately discover. Take a particularly dis...

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

Like what? Can you name any of these unknowns? What are You? I sure don't know what I am. There is no You. If there is a you then that is known. Knowing you don’t know is still a known, not an unknown. If there is no Me then that must be that Oneness thing again. Still working on that.

Re: Exploring The Human Conscious Light Screen

But to say it is our Visual Experience implies that there is an Observer also. I think this question of how to reconcile the Observer and the Observed is still one of the unknowns of Consciousness. The confusion and the obvious stumbling block to understanding the true nature of consciousness is in...
