Re: The Central Topic

It's not the same, Eugene. There are things which are indeed function of karmic circumstances, like being born as the king's son or being born blind but what we speak of is really the ability to deepen our experience of thinking in order to recognize it as the most 'in focus' part of the flow of re...

Re: The Central Topic

If you want to make an argument against the existence or importance of 'higher cognition', you must first understand what is meant by it. How could it be otherwise? How can I understand what is meant by it if I have no direct experience of it? It's like asking a blind person to understand what it m...

Re: The Central Topic

So basically what you guys are saying is this: all you are saying is you lower-cognition conceptualizing of your individual ego-minds, you actually have no idea and no direct experience of what higher-cognition is, so all your arguments are irrelevant to what Cleric is saying. Well ok, but this make...

Re: The Central Topic

This is at the core of the issue - the individual soul life is seen as atomic element confronting a Natural/Heavenly world. Cleric, I think you still grossly misunderstand what I'm saying. I can give a simple analogy: an orchestra where there is a musical score - the global constraints, structures ...

Re: The Central Topic

Let's refocus on the main point of TCT, given your last post. You say, "(1) creative activity and direct experience of the creativity is what I do every day in my profession and my hobbies..." and then "(2) in no way preludes us from evolving and developing higher order abilities of ...

Re: The Central Topic

The question is, how do we stop merely speculating about "creativity" and actually become creative ? The quote was, again, a symbol pointing to what capacities beyond our current 'organic development' we can actually realize. The intellectual desire of, "I want to experience everythi...

Re: The Central Topic

It points once again to the absurdity of the old adage 'nothing is new under the sun’ invoked to discredit the limitless drive of creativity.[/i]” - Hermann Scherchen, On the Essence of Music (1946) That is exactly my point. Creativity evades any rigid structures and attractors imposed by any highe...

Re: The Central Topic

For this research is not based on speculation, on a day dreaming in terms of mere concepts, but on actual spiritual experience . There is no argument that the Steiner's paradigm is based on spiritual experience. The argument is whether or not all spiritual/conscious experiences are entirely reducib...

Re: The Central Topic

PS: so, for experiential-consciousness idealists, the music is a unique ever-fresh experience of music, and for each idea of a music piece there is an innumerably rich infinite variety of qualitative conscious experiences of the same music (that includes not only auditory sensations, but emotional, ...

Re: The Central Topic

This is done for the simple reason that otherwise it would logically lead to the implications that we're not simply loci of conscious fabric which attract and repel each other through exchange of spiritual photons (part of the opaque to consciousness fabric-in-itself) but the our loci exist within ...
