Re: Criticism

https://i.ibb.co/47Qwghp/rend-flat.jpg What troubles you about this image? It seems to be like the example with the boiling water (one substance only) or as BK says ripples and whirlpools in mind, in this case the faces being the whirlpools. Mark, With idealism, would you agree it is about going to...

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

I agree with Ashvin above in that a new modern objective science humility is required in that "enlightened" Cartesian separation of spirit and matter is only now beginning to recognize subjective experiential realities, which may have been previously "mapped" or represented thro...

Re: Criticism

This one really sticks in my craw... and I swear it's not about the missed opportunity for the $$ :mrgreen: I could come up with a 500 pesos prize for Cleric's essay :mrgreen: Cleric is spiritually evolved to the stage he needs no monetary incentive to freely contribute his inspirations here. I, on...

Re: Message from BK

How about a category in the forum dedicated to Bernardos work? Im not really interested in Steiner or Whitehead or specific religions but would love to engage with others on analytic idealism in a more focused way? We already have the topic-specific sub-section where one can start a discussion arou...

Re: Criticism

Bernardo just posted his twitter-message on his FB as well. He thinks that a forum with different opinions could confuse his readers, as if readers dont know what a forum is. Strange one. I wonder how many of BK's more casual audience, who have only watched some youtube interviews, if even having d...

Re: Message from BK

Actually 12 steps doesn't work all that well. “Peer reviewed studies peg the success rate of AA somewhere between five and 10 percent,” writes Dodes. “About one of every 15 people who enter these programs is able to become and stay sober.” https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/03/the-surp...

Re: Criticism

Here's the way I make sense of issues like this: Expeditions into the 'supersensible' involve dissociation from one's physiological body and can be extremely threatening to one's sense of self. To avoid a psychotic break it is imperative that a new belief structure is available to replace the one t...

Re: Message from BK

I hope you see I am proceeding in good faith, despite all the reasons to assume the worst. I have seen enough here to know the phantom layer of abstract concepts moving in circular logic is no joke. It is the real deal. Addiciton is the best metaphor here (more than a metaphor, really) - when we ar...

Re: Message from BK

Years ago I checked out Sam Harris forum it is huge. Leo Gura has one too. It is an asset provided to those who follow certain people. Do you guys really think "no time" is an excuse or that a forum like this is here so that BK can read YOU? Not read, just skim at least... and, if some po...
