Re: Criticism

What I see here is you imposing your metaphysical framework to work your own reductionism. A couple quick examples: 1. You refer to the “thought system of Nietzsche’s Zarathustra”, although Nietzsche emphatically rejected any systematization at all. Nietzsche speculated that reason itself might be ...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

3. The highest level of those who are acutely sensitive to the “vibrations” in the room and channel them unmediated by theory or artifice of any kind. Like Miles or John Coltrane. They barely even hear what they are playing, but are rather a pure conduit through which Being speaks. Another one of t...

Re: Soundness of QM assumptions

Interesting quote from Einstein from that video talk: "The most incomprehensible think about the universe it that it is comprehensible" which is another intractable problem for materialism, but almost a tautology in idealism - it is comprehensible simply because it is a manifestation of Co...

Re: Soundness of QM assumptions

But why are we assuming the "measurement device" is also not a conscious observer? It seems to me these technologies are extensions of our natural perceptual-cognitive capacities, created through those capacities, which simply allow us to observe from a non-local 'place' within Space-Time...

Re: Soundness of QM assumptions

All those speculations about "observer" in QM turned out to be nonsense. It was experimentally proven that the QM measurement results (e.g. the double-slit experiment) are the same regardless whether there is an observer registering the results at the moment of the measurement or not. For ...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

I guess I'd be labeled a "trinitarian" because my faith is in the Father, Mother and Child within a Great Mysteriousness. Not put forth to argue about it, just a way that works for me. Exactly, as another NDEr Nancy Danison said about her encounter with the Source: "It is like a chil...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

Eugene asks, "How come my own mind could possibly come up with such unbelievably captivating music on its own?" I would respond, hopefully non-arrogantly, that perhaps you accessed the "universal mind." Perhaps, folks can forgive me if I note one of my standing beefs with this f...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

Just to share my personal musical journey, with a disclaimer that music tastes are personal preferences, I myself, having 50GB of music library, listened and played music from ancient to most contemporary, my favorite period now is medieval, and this is what I mostly play and listen now (together wi...

Re: Criticism

No problem, I just came across Rick Tarnas recently. Hopefully it doesn't dissuade you from reading him, but he is very familiar with Anthroposophy and sent his daughter to a Waldorf school. But he remains firmly within the more academic explications of what Steiner also pointed to. I'm a slow guy,...

Re: Survival

Ashvin, you are right, it is exactly the subconscious "veiling" that makes the localized cognition to ignore and not being able to experience the "excitations of a spatially unbound field of subjectivity—i.e., one universal mind". BK first offered DID only as an explanatory analo...
