Re: Vote of confidence?

You have my confidence, but there are always ways to improve. One strategy I've seen employed by some boards is to 1. Allow the ugly post. 2. Then lock the post, add a comment to why the post is locked 3. apply some type of punishment : warning, temp ban, full ban the advantage with this approach i...

Re: Survival

Ashvin. I really would appreciate if you toned down your criticism towards everything which is deemed dualist. It's not healthy for any of the discussions here. I literally imagine you sitting somewhere, waiting to strike, scanning for anything dualist in any posts on this forum. you know, I think a...

Re: New Bigelow Prize Competition!

S wirling bodilessly in the spiritual void were the ten lords and ladies of existence. These were the proto-beings known as Lord Time (sometimes incorrectly called Time Lord), Lady Space, Lord Energy, Lady Matter, Lady Gravity, Lord Willing, Lady Perceiving, Lady Feeling, Lord Sensation and Lord Th...

Re: What we Learned from JW's Monism

It is the task of evolution that we unfold this Cosmic structure. If evolution is unfolding, where does the "original" foldedness come from? it all "started" with a folded mess? Or are we talking about a more local context such as in "we created this folded mess ourselves b...

Re: Criticism

If you'd listen carefully to him, and not just apply your own prejudices onto his words, you'd see he has a point. Martin, what do you make out of JW's insistence that Energy is the basis of all? And the question was not even if Energy or Consciousness is the basis - it was the simple fact that bef...

Re: Message from BK

So, yes; criticism is/should be allowed. Where else would you criticize BK but in the BK forum? (this is not a fanclub) Ok, so I'm coming around to a BK related forum dedicated to discussing his model/ideas being a worthwhile option. Not as a kind of BK booster club, so to speak, free of constructi...

Re: Criticism

Re: Message from BK

I'm extremely allergic to views like "but it looks bad!". that attitude is essetially what drives cancel culture. If this isn't the place where depth is allowed, (resulting in discusisons that might be perceived as "criticism towards BK") i don't know what to say. So, yes; critic...
