Re: Message from BK

How about a category in the forum dedicated to Bernardos work? Im not really interested in Steiner or Whitehead or specific religions but would love to engage with others on analytic idealism in a more focused way? We already have the topic-specific sub-section where one can start a discussion arou...

Re: Criticism

Bernardo just posted his twitter-message on his FB as well. He thinks that a forum with different opinions could confuse his readers, as if readers dont know what a forum is. Strange one. I wonder how many of BK's more casual audience, who have only watched some youtube interviews, if even having d...

Re: Criticism

I hope Eugene will be back because he's been a major stimulus. I've always imagined that he would be the first here to grasp the inner realms of the spirit because he has such a disciplined mind and also experience in meditation. You're very gracious Cleric, showing great forbearance. I suspect thi...

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

I would continue to explain that since slugs and snails emerge mostly on rainy moist days, it's good to choose the one in the blue container, as other salts, perhaps more "natural ones" without additives such as Himalayan Pink might be harder to pour. Oh well, guess us Canuck slug slayers...

Actually 12 steps doesn't work all that well. “Peer reviewed studies peg the success rate of AA somewhere between five and 10 percent,” writes Dodes. “About one of every 15 people who enter these programs is able to become and stay sober.” https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/03/the-surp...

Re: Message from BK

Well, let's face it, almost all of the commentary in recent months has involved a dozen or so participants who quickly signed on here as refugees from the old forum when it was laid to rest. As for how many more of the old gang followed in the immediate aftermath, the list shows the number of early ...

Re: Message from BK

I'm very disappointed that Eugene felt he had to leave. He was a fantastic asset to all discussions. I sincerely hope he reconsiders. It of course makes sense that BK should move away from a forum which has been increasingly critical of his ideas. It's doubtful the forum can make it on its own in t...

Re: Message from BK

I hope you see I am proceeding in good faith, despite all the reasons to assume the worst. I have seen enough here to know the phantom layer of abstract concepts moving in circular logic is no joke. It is the real deal. Addiciton is the best metaphor here (more than a metaphor, really) - when we ar...
