Re: Einstein on the train

The big bang theory IS a hypothesis. I NEVER said the big bang is an assumption. I said the big bang WAS THE BEGINNING is an ASSUMPTION. Frankly, if you can NOT tell the difference, then that explains WHY you can NOT understand. Do you not think that this exchange shows that I do? No, not really. W...

Re: Einstein on the train

Here you say that an infinite and eternal Universe is a possibility BUT yet in your book you infer that the Universe is getting bigger, and started out a particular size, which completely CONTRADICTS that there is a POSSIBILITY that the Universe could be infinite and eternal. Age, the title of the ...

Re: Einstein on the train

(@ Age) In case you weren't aware, the "Real" numbers were named such AFTER they discovered that there are other numbers we call 'imaginary'. Originally, all numbers were just natural ones (1, 2, 3, ...) then they included fractions which are properly called 'rational' from the term 'ratio' which j...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

I do say things like; Absolutely EVERY thing is relative to the observer. There is no could's, maybe's, might's, et cetera in that. I can NOT see how. If that statement is True, then whatever perspective is given is relative to that observer. But, as I have said; absolutely EVERY thing I write coul...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

But if 'mind', 'consciousness', and 'everything' are each the exact same thing, then WHY three different words? What is the purpose of having different words if there is only ONE definition for the three? If words are redundant, then just take them out of the vocabulary. To me, the three words have...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Where did you think this was going? I do not mind where this might be going - anywhere is just fine. Okay but not really answering thee question. I do say things like; Absolutely EVERY thing is relative to the observer. There is no could's, maybe's, might's, et cetera in that. Would that mean then ...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Absolutely EVERY thing I write could be WRONG, or partly wrong. Now I could ask you again if you are absolutely sure of the above, but we know where this is going to go (or we don't)... I am going to answer "the question", that is where this is going, although you did not REALLY ask a question here...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

I'm acknowledging that anything is possible -- but a single path just doesn't seem likely to me. I have KNOWN this for quite some time now. But what does not SEEM likely to you could in FACT be thee Truth. What is it, exactly, that you have KNOWN for quite some time now? What now does NOT seem like...

Re: Einstein on the train

Besides the ASSUMPTION and/or BELIEF that the big bang was the "beginning"... Again: The big bang is not an assumption, it is an hypothesis... Frankly, you need to demonstrate that you understand the difference, or you are wasting your time. The big bang theory IS a hypothesis. I NEVER said the big...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

This associating the ONE Mind with 'thoughts' is a perfect example of just how the human brain can twist and distort things, by, and into, what it BELIEVES is true. There is a perfectly reasonable explanation of WHY the Mind was/is associated with, and is seen as, thinking/thoughts/the brain, et ce...

Re: Einstein on the train

BUT the so called "scientific paper", "results of "experiments" " and the "interpretation of the results" regarding the Universe Itself are mostly based off of the ASSUMPTION and BELIEF that the Universe began with, and/or at, the big bang. The big bang is not an assumption, it is an hypothesis tha...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

There is only ONE Mind, which is within ALL human beings. This (always OPEN) Mind KNOWS ALL things. The human brain, however, twists and distorts this KNOWING with its own THINKING. Agree with "There is only ONE Mind" (I prefer calling it consciousness as, to me, mind seems very much connected to t...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

Simply “EXPLAIN ALL of this, in great detail.” within the context that we have been discussing, that would be great, thanks. Okay. There is only ONE Mind, which is within ALL human beings. This (always OPEN) Mind KNOWS ALL things. The human brain, however, twists and distorts this KNOWING with its ...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

I suppose so. But a, "I suppose so", comes across, to me anyway, as a very strong resistance to thee Truth. I'm acknowledging that anything is possible -- but a single path just doesn't seem likely to me. I have KNOWN this for quite some time now. But what does not SEEM likely to you could in FACT ...
