Re: Criticism

Does this ocean of living meaning have Structure? Because if it does, I have a hard time envisoning this structure without it bringing (due to the Nature of Structure) various modes of dualities. (Or maybe Polarities is a better word) But then again, maybe my question is of the same nature as "...

Re: Criticism

My question is: can we actually study and practice the PoF in a healthy way without being harassed for critical and sober approach, for questioning the assumptions and without being forced to adopt a system unquestionable beliefs? Can we practice Anthroposophy without forming a sect around it? The ...

Re: Criticism

No, the pragmatic approach is to actually try to lift it without assuming any beliefs whether it is possible or not, but assuming a working hypothesis that it can be lifted until it is experimentally proven that it can not be lifted. Such approach is pragmatic and active but does not require any re...

Re: Criticism

Yes, of course we can know more than we know now, but if the thing-in-itself is truly an idea outside time and space (the scaffolding of our dissociation), that's a definition of transcendent, is it not? Some of the representations of the ideas that contribute to a pencil (making it what it really ...

Re: Criticism

Sorry to interrupt, but was anyone else recently having issues with the site not loading, and getting an error message? Yes, there was some problem. Generally it was working with great delay for every request but at times it was bailing out with 'name resolution' error. It seems the website is cont...

Re: Criticism

How many sides does a Moeibus strip have? One or Two? I'd say that it has BOTH One and Two sides. Thanks Martin. I'd say your question makes a very good showcase of the way thinking shall be transformed. Asking the question in this way makes it look like there's some definitive answer already preex...

Re: Criticism

I actually do admit them, but only contingently on all of these above IF s. I admit them contingently and pragmatically with a principal possibility that all those IFs may be wrong. So, to me, this approach is a pragmatic spiritual practice and spiritual science. Basically, I pragmatically and cont...
