You claim that you hear a 'great sage' talking to you in your head and presumably think it is an actual entity outside of yourself communicating with you, I just think that it is generated by a subconscious part of you for whatever reason.
Is it a love of knowledge or a love of wisdom or both?
To you and most and sundry around here it appears you ONLY love knowledge. By your 99.99% reply, you truly don't even know what wisdom is..so Y quest_ion me about a 'great sage' something I have never called him - he is merely a 'sage'.
Insisting you are 99.99% certain everything I talk about in relation to sage and God is all some sort of personal mindfuck - only renders you a fool.
Sages, Gods, Gut-feels or Intuitions - they are all me and mine. Which voice I choose to listen to is still up to me.
So glad someone on this forum has the integrity and indeed the true values that 'philosophy' aspired to. (there is another) but NE way.
It's rather sad, especially among the fervent atheist types that they must bond their allegiances and disregard the true pursuit of wisdom.
No matter. I agree with U, we do have a lot of similarities. Unfortunately - I am 'owned' by the 3rd party intelligence...hence U R correct, those voices that speak to me, and may I add - extremely rationally!!...are not under my control - but now that I have passed the TEST_AMEN_T test, it is all good.
I would like to have a private discourse with you - we both have minds with POVs worth interrogating...if U feel wisdom is a worthy pursuit, do contact me via my email on my website. Since you have shown integrity, what is in my mind is yours..mine it!
