Re: Message from BK

I'd rather not dwell on this sorry episode. I'm completely fine with anyone's decision to move on from the forum, and understand that it can actually feel like a counterproductive distraction for some. As for the rest, I only ask that you proceed in good faith, and trust that each of us is truly dra...

Signing out of the account, and not signing back in, has pretty much the same effect. But I can probably find a way to delete your account, if you can't manage to resist. ;)

Re: Message from BK

Shu Eugene actually took it upon himself to message Bernardo with a rant about a cult of Anthropology , You meant " anthroposophy ", right? Yes, thanks for pointing that out. Seems spellcheck may have auto-corrected that, and I've been a bit preoccupied to the point of not taking the time...

Re: A personal beef.

I'm stretching to find right language. I intellectually comprehend that the above image is a sensual representation and I grok what it's about. However, it does not generate a sensual feeling or recognition within me. What would be the poet's term for that feeling? A feeling like the one stimulated...

Re: Message from BK

I presume he's talking about this forum... https://twitter.com/BernardoKastrup/status/1466874624529022985 Yes ... Eugene actually took it upon himself to message Bernardo with a rant about a cult of Anthroposophy, headed by members of the official Society by that name, prompting BK to email me to g...

Re: A personal beef.

Do you really find the Magritte compelling in a personally experiential sensual way? I don't know about sensual, I'm just referring to the juxtaposition of the moon image with the dreamlike surrealism of the rock floating in space, as a way into the artist's understanding of the dreamlike, metaphor...

Re: A personal beef.

... but where's the compelling story in the Magritte? I find compelling the intimation of the moon as an archetypal collective dream appearing to the soul-beings of the sole Being, which just like such unique human imaginings expressed as art forms no less speaks to us of transcendent truths. There...

Re: A personal beef.

The rock suspended in space is reminiscent/derivative of the dreamlike surrealism of Magritte. The feeling it evokes in this psyche is just how likewise dreamlike is that rock suspended in space we call the moon.

Re: A personal beef.

It is the internet of beefs after all ... I suppose I'm not getting how inserting one of the above 'visual stories' into the 'Criticism' thread—currently the dominant discussion here—in lieu of any intellectually reasoned comment, would in some way better clarify why there is, or is not, good reason...
