Re: Joscha Bach and John Vervaeke

All indications would point that way. On the other hand, I don't rule out the possibility of a 'stroke' of spiritual insight due to reasons unknown. But I don't see how any further attempts to call their attention to PoF, for ex., are going to help. They simply aren't interested in considering anyt...

Re: Joscha Bach and John Vervaeke

It's very small, but each individual who hears the corrective case and acts on it can make a world of difference. If we take the reality of spiritual evolution over multiple lifetimes seriously, then we also see how what we think, feel, and do in this lifetime really matters. We won't passively set...

Re: Joscha Bach and John Vervaeke

Unless you make a name for yourself in academia, it's a question of a continuous, lifetime effort - since, Leo says, there are limitless people with theories of everything, and most must be sifted out based on qualifications (as BK weeds folk out if they don't have a PhD). I'm assuming you mean a P...

Re: Joscha Bach and John Vervaeke

To be honest, I can't listen to these things anymore. I went to 1 hr mark with Curt's suggestion, and we immediately come to the assumption of "hard limit to knowing", and these so-called limits always expressed in the most abstract intellectual concepts. It is the actually limited mode o...

Re: Idealism, Materialism and Zen

I'm surprised you are still debating Steiner. I thought you had abandoned that. My impression of Steiner has been that he an unoriginal thinker who just mashed together a bunch of esoteric beliefs and Eastern philosophy (misunderstood in places) . Any claims of clairvoyant knowledge hardly anyone w...

Joscha Bach and John Vervaeke

A contemporary German idealist, Joscha Bach would make for an good candidate to exchange ideas with BK, but Vervaeke asks enough good thought-provoking questions to make this worth a listen, IMO ...

Re: I'm looking for Bernardo's talk concerning his psychedelic experiences

I half-remember that some weeks ago I saw Bernardo share some podcast or talk or whatever in which he talks about his psychedelic experiences. I remember making a mental note of wanting to listen to it later, but now I can't find it anywhere. Can any of you help me out? I don't recall what talk tha...

Re: Is this a good answer to the question "why am I me and not someone else?", and the possibility of infinite creation

I've run accross this question in the analyticidealism subreddit, and engaged in a conversation. In the end, instead of theoretical descriptions, I provided a simile ... For the fun of it, let's toss in another limited analogy here: Let's imagine some irreducible, immanent conscious agency as non-l...

Re: Absent any and all idea construction what remains?

By the way, now moving this to GD, as this topic too has wandered into a labyrinth, best freely explored.
