Re: Message from BK

Since the forum is not longer associated with Bernardo and is hijacked by anthroposophists (be they official members of the organization or independent believers), I have no further interest in participating in it and contributing to the spread of sectarian beliefs. I wish you all the best and to st...

Re: Criticism

The question would be: do you envision any way at all which can elevate man to consciousness of these depths? I think I know the answer because you wrote it few posts ago. You said that the veil is there for a reason. No one disputes that. The question is do you see it as part of evolution that the...

Re: Criticism

I'm also not comfortable with participating on a forum that supports propaganda by members of cults but sensors any criticism of them (my few posts were deleted). Cults usually employ some sort of philosophy as their foundation, but you can never understand a cult if you only look at their philosoph...

Re: Criticism

The fact that you react in this way, practically answers my question if you're open for the possibility that there's spiritual time-depth behind your eye. I said it hundred times: I do believe that there is a spiritual time-depth behind my eye. But I do not believe that the phenomena/ideas/imaginat...

Re: Criticism

or is it mostly a product of my individual mind/imagination/unconsciousness ? What does this even mean? Do you have any non-dualistic explanation for this in bold? Cleric is trying to explain to you what your own terms mean within a unified Reality, using the concept of "phantom layer" of...

Re: Criticism

Thinking is not restricted in the loops of the intellect. Thinking moves along the full spectrum. Thinking is humble. Thinking can address what is higher than itself and which cannot yet be grasped as a marble. To understand doesn't mean to dominate and enwrap marbles in the mind. Thinking can unde...

Re: Entanglement etc. Materialism vs. Idealism

A materialist left $100 bill on the table. An idealist grabbed it and put into his pocket.
- Why did you take my money?
- Don't worry, it's not real money, it's only an idea of money

Re: Criticism

I'll jump in here. I think that Wolfgang Schad's 2 Volume work Understanding Mammals ( https://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Mammals-Threefoldness-Wolfgang-Schad/dp/0932776639 ), which is written from a Steinerian perspective, makes a valuable contribution to biology. IMO biology in academia is a co...

Re: Criticism

Eugene, JW, BK, and many others are trying to find the continuity of cognition within the abstract representations , where it will never be found, instead of within the higher order spiritual processes from which the representations go forth. Those processes weave together through a world consistin...
