Re: twin psychics

Yes, TF, I did say direclty that "Steiner made mistakes" and, yes, I did claim that he was wrong that red is what causes a bull to go wild. I directly gave other direct examples. In short sentences. Some of the resposnes where that I am deceptive and guided by evil beings. Yes, P.M., I di...

Re: Finding My Monkey

... Then asking if Kastrup is speaking of the same thing, just in different terms, when he suggests that Mind (I prefer this to consciousness in this context) is the ontological primitive and the one thing we must assume because we can not reduce any further. So we can't get 'behind' it to observe ...

Re: twin psychics

And, yes, to those who were wondering. I can reach a point where I feel a person's antipathy is so entrenched that I can't find any value in trying to keep a conversation going. You've seen that with some of the folks here. But I like Soul, probably for several reasons. I think it is a respect for ...

Re: EEG spikes in humans and rats at end of life and what this means for the supposed 'evidence' for idealism

>>>For that idea to be coherently asserted, it must exist and correspond to something in observational experience.<<< Nope. Harry Potter is, as mentioned earlier, a counterexample. Harry Potter does NOT exist. Redness and any other color does not exist, either. Each is NO-thing but assigned, ascrib...

Re: EEG spikes in humans and rats at end of life and what this means for the supposed 'evidence' for idealism

"To exist" merely symbolizes "causes its awareness=is-ness=existence=no-thing) by - an observation process (see, hear, touch, smell, taste) - a detection process in a technical device. If you doubt that an apple exists, then you are merely trying to re-define. For this reasion i chal...

Re: EEG spikes in humans and rats at end of life and what this means for the supposed 'evidence' for idealism

NO-thing also called immaterial, cannot change, bcz it is NO-thing rather than SOME-thing. A thought is technically immutable=eternal, in that it does not exist in the first place. ... {OF = symbolizing = FAKING} the imaginary. This is an amazing leap of unwarranted logic from "immaterial"...

Re: twin psychics

Hey Soul, I'm sorry that this isn't yet definitive but since you want to read these and seem to have a bit of time, I figure you might get to them faster if I inch you along with me as my friends get back to me with ideas. My friend Max thinks that the lecture wasn't explicitly about physics but th...

Re: Finding My Monkey

That's Jung for you. ' The evil one is holy .' it sent shivers down my spine as I nodded my head and exhaled. It's what I meant by beautifully terrifying and is one of the things that stands out for me about him and his work. His capacity to embrace 'darkness' and 'light', to gain insight from both...

Re: Depiction, Objective and Subjective

This is really great feedback and I agree, thanks. “Unconscious” is a bit of a misnomer anyway. Do you have any book recommendations for this? I do, but, since you are already familiar with BK idealist framework, I think it would be best for you to check out Cleric's essay on this forum - Beyond th...

Re: Depiction, Objective and Subjective

My first thought is that the human that produces that is obviously producing something incredibly specific and particular. Our abstracted tendency might be to notice elements that we experience as abstract patterns, but we have added those. Standing in the artist's shoes, we experience a very speci...
