Re: Crucifixion

Yes the task is done, final and complete. That one will never again be born; not to remain unborn but to never be in the first place, not one thing can I claim as my own, as me, not one thing.

Re: Crucifixion

There is no ground of unborn! Earlier in this thread you asked Dennis how being bound by causes and conditions is the definition of freedom, but there is nothing separate from causes or conditions, nothing to be bound in the first place. You draw yourself in as existing apart from causes and conditi...

Re: Crucifixion

What is the point of seeking truth if we don't accept the answer when it comes? You didn't get the answer.... rather you: What I discovered is that speaking and writing of reason holds back the floodgates of love You didn't like where not having the answer was taking you so you disregarded the poss...

Re: postmodern primer

A mind which must "know" and be relevant has to have the answer, nihilism is a consequence of a mind unable to live with doubt. It's basically a tantrum, a well fuck you if I can't have the answer nobody fucking can. Meaning, objectively and "frozen through time" is easily understood and provides se...

Re: Crucifixion

First of all, was I compassionate? Really it depends on your perspective, someone else might say I was being a smart ass, who is right? Are both perspectives right or valid (which pye talks about in another thread) or is the tone of the response even relevant or was there even a tone there? Taking t...

Wisdom of the Infinite is not omniscient, rather it is a mind cured of the addiction to fill in the blanks.

Can it be reduced? This age versus that age, all masking the underlying problem that reason does not motivate, past the age where devils lurk in the dark, passion alone is the prime motivator.

Re: Your Attitude Towards Gay Rights

Well that's my point, there are no God given rights. If some members of the group have benefits conferred simply through the act of "marriage" then the ability to challenge that status is also conferred. I really don't understand your last sentence at all. Nothing wrong with abortion, and since righ...

Crucify. Martyr. Punish. They seem inseparable. If what you are living for - is not worth dying for - then its not worth living for. I like this. And without invalidating the logic of the premise, the intent of life invites an optimistic amplification. If what you are dying for - is not worth livin...

Overcoming anxiety is a worthwhile goal in my view, I guess what you're saying is that instead of investigating the real source of anxiety (irrational beliefs) we simple lash out as if those beliefs were factual. Yet to the irrational they are factual, that is the genius of the mind or "rationalizat...

Re: With only one consciousness, reality cannot be confirmed

Re: With only one consciousness, reality cannot be confirmed

You changed your definition of what the totality is. Now it is things nonexistent and this is exactly what I was driving at. Ultimately no - I nor the world exists. I and the world exist because I perceive the world as a concept. The world only exists because I hold it as a concept in my mind. It i...

The Totality which includes absolutely everything we can see and everything we can't see would be bounded by what? The Totality is everything existent and nonexistent. Does it make sense to say you, I and the world doesn't exist? The potential for the original emerges when we let go of wishing it's ...

If the totality of existence Is all things that exist conditionally without limits, the totality itself is conditional and therefore limited and not boundless.

As a side note- The "No things" described above is still an existence. The existence of "No things" like that outside of consciousness still implies the validity of bivalent logic. If an existence without limits (undifferentiated being) exists then it interacts with the Mind. Mind necessarily is in...

when we talk about causality, we're talking about phenomenal existence. the ultimate reality of phenomena is that it depends on causes/conditions. to speak about absolute existence entails either 'stabs in the dark/ inference' or 'ineffable silence'. ineffable silence as ground or clearing shows up...
