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.

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...

Re: Criticism

To that, I will contrast my thinking. I fully agree that the physical world is all of reality, and it is a process of eternal becoming out of its own essential nature. I have spoken about how rational objectification, propositional logic, and reductionism are practical adaptations with no deeper in...

Re: Criticism

It should be clear already that all four geometries exist only as eigen bases onto which the intellect can project its thinking. Reality doesn't operate through any such geometry. OK, so, there is a “harmonious unity” of high-order Intuitive/Imaginative ideas that govern the reality ( including the...

Re: Criticism

The thought "the sky is green" is still a meaningful arrangement of concepts but it simply doesn't correspond to perceptions in the wider context. It fits nicely in our local curvature of meaning but not with the curvature at large. OK, that's basically the Russel's Correspondence Theory ...
