Re: Rupert Spira & Bernardo Kastrup in Conversation

The point not being an analytic quest for fundamental truth but a personal need for comfort and hope. True that Christian tradition is more personal while Eastern ones are more transpersonal. But in many flavors of Eastern tradition the quest for truth is non-analytic or at least minimally-analytic...

Re: Rupert Spira & Bernardo Kastrup in Conversation

Thanks Eugene. Hope you are doing well. I found a recent AMA with BK where he is asked what religion he prefers. He said that when he is in his strength (rational, intelectual) he prefers the Indian (meditative and Eastern) approaches and that when he is in his vulnerability (nonrational, feeling) ...

Re: The Central Topic

How do you reconcile your understanding of Karma with your unwillingness to admit that reality has not only spatial but also temporal structure? How exactly Karma operates in your view? What are the World mechanics which lead you to meet certain person as ordained by destiny, for example? And most ...

Re: Whirlpool's core/first motion

Similarly, simply showing the inconsistencies of materialism, leaves one in void. ... That's why it is so urgent today that we not only show the inconstancies but also show how they can resolved (besides simply picking a blind belief of choice). And this resolution is to happen here and now, not by...

Re: Looking for concise criticism of analytic idealism for an upcoming AMA with Bernardo

Ok, but this is just a restatement of your initial comment. You don't address one of the points I've made in response to it... To address your point I would say: maybe, but how would you navigate to that conclusion? I agree that BK is shooting himself into the foot when stating that "any anthr...

Re: Looking for concise criticism of analytic idealism for an upcoming AMA with Bernardo

BK still has to explain how the act of anthropomorphisation consisting in arbitrarily picking one property of human consciousness - say the unstable and disorderly nature of emotions - and conjuring it up to MAL is ‘of course a misconception’ whilst when the anthropomorphisation consists in picking...

Re: The Central Topic

I anticipate that it will be once again objected that it's pointless to evolve in this way because all existence will cease if we grow towards the higher fractal levels of the Time organism and instead we should continue endlessly explore the lower states.

Re: Looking for concise criticism of analytic idealism for an upcoming AMA with Bernardo

... Eugene ... the reason why I moved this topic to this section, is to keep it focused on fulfilling the request in the original post for questions to be put to BK in the upcoming AMA session. So I would ask that any discussion you, or others, wish to have with Federica regarding her suggested que...
