Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

Oops, I got so caught by synchronicities with Eugene that I've wandered way off the music theme. Pretty much like every other topic posted in the 'general' section :D But I appreciate your good intentions. I confess that my intuitive ways are quick to connect more and more dots and disrespect the d...

Re: How to talk about God: on why God is not an object

BTW, if in conversation with a militant atheist (not recommended), and one defines or references God as not an object, they tend to scream 'special pleading, special pleading' I'd just go with the ever-present Origin is not an object, and confuse the shit out of them ;) I'm surprised to find that s...

Re: How to talk about God: on why God is not an object

Steve, this story is a common New Age trope. Another legend goes to Saint Francis and the Wolf of Gubbio where the Saint cuts a deal whereby the terrible wolf agrees to be kind if the townspeople feed him. On the other hand, and probably a more indigenous view that equates true spirit with wild ani...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

I guess I'd be labeled a "trinitarian" because my faith is in the Father, Mother and Child within a Great Mysteriousness. Not put forth to argue about it, just a way that works for me. Exactly, as another NDEr Nancy Danison said about her encounter with the Source: "It is like a chil...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

Eugene asks, "How come my own mind could possibly come up with such unbelievably captivating music on its own?" I would respond, hopefully non-arrogantly, that perhaps you accessed the "universal mind." Perhaps, folks can forgive me if I note one of my standing beefs with this f...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

Just to share my personal musical journey, with a disclaimer that music tastes are personal preferences, I myself, having 50GB of music library, listened and played music from ancient to most contemporary, my favorite period now is medieval, and this is what I mostly play and listen now (together w...

Re: Survival

Ashvin, you are right, it is exactly the subconscious "veiling" that makes the localized cognition to ignore and not being able to experience the "excitations of a spatially unbound field of subjectivity—i.e., one universal mind". BK first offered DID only as an explanatory anal...

Re: How to talk about God: on why God is not an object

And this precisely is the paradoxical problematic under dualism. Power may be used or abused. Evocation arrives with an evil twin -- light/dark, good/evil, love/hate, God/Satan -- and some of the greatest atrocities are executed with good intentions. The Inquisition was an attempt to rid the world ...
