Re: A clean room for a specific exploration

Yes, off the top of my head these are people who I think have given us material to ponder that is engaging with related even if their interpretation aren't perfect: Steiner Barfield Talbott Holdrege Spira Wilber Klocek etc And I think many many other people have done great work in helping us experi...

Re: A clean room for a specific exploration

Hi there, "Based on your past comments, it seems like you just feel these things are unknowable in principle, but perhaps I am wrong about that." I have to be brief due to context. I believe that there is one reality that can be perceived in much wider and deeper ways than human on the wh...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

edit: I just woke up, apologies if I'm snappy. I missed Cleric's post and that seems to make a greater deal of sense to me on first glance. I should probably take my time with all of this Yeah, you really should. I also probably should not have indulged some of your comments so soon in your process...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

I trust that however important my desires are to me I'm definitely not whole, so I'm perfectly in the green at least concerning that. As for the second comment, I'll mull over the existential query that poises me. I certainly think BK's model is sound and I also believe there is value in our atomiz...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

This is off subject and I definitely think your responses deserve more attention lavished on them than this but what would be the consequential pitfalls of studying both the 'dark' and 'light' arts as you call them? There is no reason one cannot separate the pursuits or even embark upon a third or ...

Re: Anthroposophy for Dummies

A couple of random questions have popped up for me in my continued research of Anthroposophy/Spiritual Science (ASS :D). What is the understanding of God? Steiner seems to say some things about this which seem to be in tension. At https://www.rudolfsteinerweb.com/Rudolf_Steiner%27s_Epistemology.php...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

I'll read all of this carefully, thank you very much for the reply. Our impasse may be a consequence of how inhibiting words are. I view my desires as important but I do not view them as a 'truth' or of any substantive relevance to how one should pursue growth. Correlation isn't causation in that s...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

I can't consider that truth as good or bad though. I don't think that'd make sense. To presume that there's an idealistic superposition over our materialistic reality as BK justifiably does in the face of certain absurdities is understandable. However, to extrapolate from this that our consciousnes...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

Would higher consciousness enable me more self control and inner strength? I definitely consider the, not only materialistic, but 'typical' way people are taught to conceive of problems to be suboptimal even within the boundaries of what's considered mundane understanding, as if cultural paradigms ...

Re: Questions about higher consciousness

@Ashvin To be honest, I keep re-reading your question #1 and cannot figure out what it means. it's difficult for me to explain because I forget my source and am not familiarized with the science but let me try. I've heard of neuroscientists being absolutely sure that they know nothing is affecting ...
