Dave Sim's Metaphysics

Sim's idea is that there are two beings in the Bible and the Koran. There is God, who is a He, and YHWH, who is a he/she/it. Sim sees the Bible (though not all of the books) and Koran as a conversation between God and YHWH. God created YHWH, and YHWH thinks it is God. In scripture is God trying to s...

Re: Suggestion List

I think you need to read some of Sim's writings, specifically his Torah commentaries and cosmology double issue from Cerebus , to help you know where he is coming from. His being a cartoonist has as much of an effect on how he communicates Truth as his reading of the Torah, Gospels and Koran has. It...

Also, Sim said: You know, Greg, that may be either true, "true" or True but it's certainly something that is guaranteed to elicit a negative reaction from women, particularly in this case where you're attempting to take Weininger's intellectual argument -- "this is Largely or Mostly True when discus...

Somewhat related, on the question of women having souls, Dave Sim said: On the first quote, I don't think this is particularly helpful, either given that we have absolutely no knowledge of what "a soul" or "soul" is, let alone who has one, who hasn't one, what its characteristics and/or properties a...

Re: Practial steps to enlightment

What were your possibilities? Being a modern person. What difficulties were you having? Motivation. Why did you have to exhaust all possibilities? Because I am an idiot. :-) What beliefs did you drop? That approval from the herd is at all valuable. Did you meditate? Yes. How often did you do it? Wh...

Re: Practial steps to enlightment

Hi truth_justice,

For my personal journey to becoming enlightened, what I did was exhaust all possibilities besides enlightenment and then I was left with no other option but full commitment [to enlightenment].

Is this what you are looking for?

Re: Enlightenment & Materialism

Spiritism and materialism are one, and are different stages through which the same person goes one after the other. The spiritual would lose its entire dignity if it materialized. - Otto Weininger

Re: Re-establishing fundamentals

Before making enlightenment the most important thing in my life: what is enlightenment? That is for you to define, but I would say that it is Directly Understanding Reality. Single-mindedness, perseverance, unwillingness to compromise, courage, &c. Hope this helps. It does. Everyone seems to agree ...

Re: Re-establishing fundamentals

How does one take the quickest, most direct, path from philosophic and spiritual ignorance to total, perfect enlightenment? That is simple. One only has to make becoming enlightened the most important thing in one's life and the path will then be revealed. What tools and what virtues are necessary ...

Evidence of his having an understanding of God: Because I say what is empirically true: nothing exists except God, I am deemed to be insane. This is from Following Cerebus #11, November 2007.

I'll see what I can do.
Writing him a letter seems a long way to go about it.
It may be the only way!
