Re: Criticism

No. I'd rather not. But I did not go down the easy path. Ok. Neither did Cleric, but he has explained his difficult drug-fueled path in all its gory details here, and how precisely the sense of ego stands in relation to consciousness which moves towards the threshold of physical death and across it...

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: Criticism

"Healthy" tradition is always concerned with experience and knowledge of the Truth and Reality. The difference between healthy traditions and cults is in a way how they do it. But Cleric, the more you exercise twisted logic, the more I'm getting convinced that you are representing a cult....

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

If you have seen that slugs die equally well with salt poured on them from any color container, and if you know of a fairly good explanation as to why the salt kills the slug, and if you also have a fairly good understanding of why the color has nothing to do with why the slug dies, how do you rela...

Re: Criticism

I'm also not comfortable with participating on a forum that supports propaganda by members of cults but sensors any criticism of them (my few posts were deleted). Cults usually employ some sort of philosophy as their foundation, but you can never understand a cult if you only look at their philosop...

Re: Phenomenological idealism: definitions of common terms

".I am concerned, not with the way in which science, so far, has interpreted consciousness, but with the way in which we experience it in every moment of our lives." - Steiner Yes, I believe there is some very good phenomenology in PoF. However, I primarily believe that Steiner is making ...

Re: Criticism

or is it mostly a product of my individual mind/imagination/unconsciousness ? What does this even mean? Do you have any non-dualistic explanation for this in bold? Cleric is trying to explain to you what your own terms mean within a unified Reality, using the concept of "phantom layer" of...

Re: Criticism

On the other hand, when Ashvin makes assertions of a sociopolitical nature such as those against 'blanket policies of any sort, targeted at materialistic desire, but conjured up with little thought and imposed on the population under the guise of "environmental protection"', the same rigo...

Re: Criticism

If you think I’m trying to find anything in abstract representations, you haven’t understood anything I’ve written. I am not saying this is your conscious philosophical method (anymore than it was for Kant). Rather, I am saying you have not thought to look in the place where the Reason-Imagination ...
