Re: New Bigelow Prize Competition!

Lord Thinking then asked Lord Time to take him back to Atlantis to position this stone tablet as a creation myth and oracle for discovery at the right time - when the Sixth Root Race was being born. The End Wish me luck! :lol: Nice one You should be careful, though. In some jurisdictions, making re...

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

So we can appreciate that Steiner is very emphatic that he can explain with his clairvoyance why red is the cause for the bull's wild reactions. And he can also use his clairvoyance to assure us that white skin can not appear when the Christ Impulse is being rejected. Both are claims that all of us...

Re: A clean room for a specific exploration

"it means that that the whole body of spiritual science exists only as abstract thoughts." Some of us believe there is no 'body of thought' that doesn't exist as abstract thoughts. That can be debates or explored or ignored or appreciated or even more. I am really learning so much these d...

Re: (Essay) And They Shall Be One Flesh: 12 Signs That We Are Dualists

Here's a legend that I truly love about what is named as the "Child Jesus of Prague." This story plays a large role in my life. At one time Santa Teresa de Avila sent an ornate small statue of the Child Jesus to a rich patron of the Catholic Church in Prague. It was given to the church an...

Re: What we Learned from JW's Monism

Nonlinear chess: Steiner takes Marx. Hegel takes Steiner. Marx takes Hegel. Check. Non-reductive move: Steiner resurrects Goethe's archetypal evolutionary idealism. Steiner points to the concrete and immanent reality of Thinking working through all human culture over the epochs. Steiner thereby syn...

Re: What we Learned from JW's Monism

Rest assured by Williams’ insisting (by way of pointing a finger outward) that it’s everyone else who disagrees with him who’s in a “cult” he forgot that he blithely exposed the three fingers pointing back at himself. His lack of a substantive reason for why all cannot be accounted for under a mind...

Re: What we Learned from JW's Monism

The key insight for me was that everyone directly or indirectly involved in this discussion - JW, BK, and whoever else - is searching for what is "prior to" everything else. We all basically agree that it is very important to identify this "prior to". And JW goes further to say ...

Re: Message from BK

I just want to point out that I may be writing much shorter essays going forward, for a variety of temporal and substantive reasons, and would not mind if there is a separate section altogether for those going forward. I haven't ruled out this suggestion, even though I realize it could be seen as p...
