Re: Perception and Reality

And calm the hell down. No need to be all pompous about this stuff. Belittling others is counterproductive more often than not. I think it was an interesting discussion, and it's helpful to never forget that it’s not the noise that distracts, but one’s reaction to noise. I think that the fella in t...

Re: Perception and Reality

You do know that the end is just a thought in your noggin, don’t you? You're getting somewhere! If only you spent more time in your noggin' thinking about that thought regarding the end just being a thought. That would be a good start. I'll provide the tidbit I provided earlier, and probably little...

Re: Perception and Reality

You asked "What's the proof of otherwise?", yet the burden of 'proof' falls to the one making the claim. You claimed that bodily death is "the end", of I'm assuming one or all of the following, take your pick: consciousness, existence, the self, you, the mind. Elaborate on why you think this is the...

Seeker, calm down. My question was posed to movingalways. She will answer in order of importance to her life, I will reply in kind. At least give her the courtesy to answer.

Re: Perception and Reality

“what's in it for me” It depends. Nothing new for you when you continue with your dishonesty and lies. But if you can find your way to be honest and drop your pettiness, you’ll experience what is the unknown for you, and the unknown for you is honest rationality. You should really seek that rather ...

Re: Perception and Reality

That’s all right. You’ve proven your dishonesty, no need to keep convincing. For your own sake you should quit trolling and address facts, not that anything you write matters here, since you’re proven that you are a dishonest person. Here’s the actual quote that you keep lying about. Because, empiri...

Re: Perception and Reality

Empirical evidence indicates the body will die, sure, but you said it indicates more than that, "the end", "end of the road", and so on, you were talking about more than the passing of the body. You meant consciousness, or what you are, who you are, the self, your existence, however you want to put...

Re: Perception and Reality

I had to go through a long process of being 'attacked', criticized, and called out on my beliefs before I could drop them. You came through your long years of experience conditioned rather than unscathed, which is perfectly natural. Likely the conditioning is hidden from you, as it's obvious that y...

Re: Perception and Reality

"Because, empirical evidence indicates that once the body dies, Fini. Last stop. End of the road. End of the line. Punch the ticket."

Russell. You can’t prove otherwise, can you?

Such are the limitations of logic and reason.

Re: Perception and Reality

I understand what you’re saying, Russell. The logical consequence of what you’re saying is: absolute truth can only be absolutely perceived by absolute awareness, and pure logic can only be purely perceived by pure awareness. Who claims pure and absolute awareness? I do, says Buddha. And what is you...

Re: A Course In Miracles

I’ve heard of A Course In Miracles but never studied it, never read much about it, so never thought about it much. Never heard or read any criticisms of it, but never looked for any. I would say most of the people who read this, have also found the following thought, though maybe not in the same wor...

Re: Perception and Reality

… if one sees dancing pink elephants under those criteria then one is experiencing delusion with sound reason, and delusion exists within the context of reality. Delusion and reason are incompatible, for obvious reasons. Reason dispels delusion. I think there is a separation between thoughts and “p...

Re: Perception and Reality

It is not possible to quantify thought. I agree that one can count thoughts on a page and that one can reason that cavemen had fewer thoughts than modern man. My reasoning is and still is that by definition, the infinite is uncountable. I don’t see how reasoning that the infinite is uncountable per...

Re: Perception and Reality

Thoughts, delusions, and the physical realm are all part of the same reality. All experiences of reality are valid in the sense that they are indeed experiences. You cannot experience a non-reality, reality is all there is. Reason is the property of thought that is accurate and consistent with real...

Re: What Insights Have You Experienced?

There used to be little insights sprinkled around the United States along the paths people passed in their cars. They sometimes ended with the word, Burmashave. I don’t remember ever seeing the above insight along the roadside, but it does fit in to another time. In a way that is to say, less crude ...

When this is happening, the concept of self that incorrectly reasons the nature of finite things is active. If you require more: Any attempt by you to ...

Re: What Insights Have You Experienced?

Insight: William Deming’s quality ratio is a handy integration tool, as it rationally defines waste-of-time when demonstrated dishonesty is afoot. If one is not inclined to conceptual analysis, or is illiterate, then attention to motive-force reveals the same knowledge that Deming’s quality ratio re...
