There ain't nobody in a body

For the discussion of all things philosophical, especially articles in the magazine Philosophy Now.
There is nothing to understand. There is no one in a body. There is only light manifesting as and through every body.
The former were probably eaten but the latter have had loads of funerals.Dontaskme wrote: No one ever gave the wild beasts or the little cute bunny rabbits a funeral.
I once attended a guinea pig's burial.
I'm sorry to hear my choice of discussion is worthless to you. And I'm also sorry to hear that you find my posts offensive in that you are compelled to evaluate my personal beliefs as if it was because I seek to comfort my rotten life. Sorry to hear you have to comfort yourself by offloading these illusory fears in you onto me. I hope you start to feel better soon, and realise the truth, that it's all a dream, sometimes the dream is very beautiful, and sometimes it's frightfully awful. And sometimes we just have to face up to the unavoidable fact that we sometimes don't get what we want. You don't have to tell me I'm mad or that I've got a few sandwiches short of a picnic, I already know that. What you could do to avoid any further distress to yourself is stop reading my posts period. None of it's real.And I love to write about it, and share that exceedingly exciting good news with other people, but no one is under any obligation to read my threads. Last time I looked, I didn't see any barriers around the universe that were holding us within trapped like wild animals in a cage, rather I saw that we are all free to be as expressive and creative as we desire, we are free to think what we want,no one is charge,it's not like I've ever murdered someone, I know my limits. Imagination is such a wonderful gift, I like to use mine to the full. One day I hope to become as popular as J K Rowling, now she had an amazing imagination.Greta wrote: ↑Tue Aug 22, 2017 1:53 am
DAM, it seems that every day you start a new thread to say the same thing - nothing is here, nothing exists, nothing is real, etc. Why repeat yourself so much when it's clear that mere repetition in lieu of strong explanations are a turn-off?
What is the point of continually asserting that nothing is real? It seems to me that you are comforting yourself because regular life sucks - just that your grapes are not sour but illusory, with the implication being that they are worthless. No offence, that's just how it looks to me.
I see life happening as a spontaneous event every second. Is any event ever done on purpose? No it isn't, it's just what happens, it does not happen and then say to you...there, I did that on purpose just to piss you off, hahaha...no, it's not that calculating, it doesn't do any thing on purpose, because there is no one running the universe.... but sometimes, as humans, we become stuck in old thinking patterns, clinging to false identities because we are so hopelessly attached to them, so then we end up not always liking or wanting what we get in life, or what we see in others, we make judgements and compare with them, we hold steadfast to our preferences.....and feel uncomfortable when others don't act like we do...but the problem with that, is there is no time machine to undo just what spontaneously happens..so it's is kind of frustrating when we have to deal with feelings we don't always like or want...I've discovered that the best way to deal with feelings and frustrating thoughts about how other people behave is just to suck it all up, that's what I do now, now I know none of it is real.
You have a wonderful talent for writing exciting stories, have you thought about writing a book or two? if you have already done so, allow me to congratulate you, hope you have sold many copies.Greta wrote: ↑Tue Aug 22, 2017 1:53 amThe distance between noumena and perception may be enormous, but the intrinsic reality of things we observe simply cannot be questioned, only considered with caution due to the amount of things we can't perceive. Even if, as the boffins say, the total sum of the universe's energy is zero (with positive and negative energy balancing each other out), this notion does not apply locally because (thankfully) it's not completely homogeneous.
If you want to excite your mind with skeletons, may I suggest comparing the skeletal frameworks of different species. The subtle and marked variances are fascinating and speak volumes about the species' lifestyles. It definitely gives and impression that we chordates are very much cut from the same cloth, so to speak - variants of one thing. Each has a skull, spine and, aside from snakes, four major limbs with incredible variations yet each major structure is recognisable in others.
Well true enough, there is no body here.
Well I'm very happy to hear that, I haven't seen one myself yet, but great if it does happen. I'm all in for that process.
