'Tame' = 'slavery' and 'wild' = 'freedom' is your miss-begotten/begetting (IMO) projection/interpretation.

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

I wish to challenge the ' antropo centrism ' of this statement by way of sharing what's clearly (IMO) demonstrated in this video;. David, do you realize that your video presents a very romanticized 'Bambi-like' cutesy anthropocentric view of domesticated animal life? There's an Eskimo wisdom statem...

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

Man is the being where this spiritual locus has gradually been able to refine the reflecting apparatus of the bodies to such an extent that the spirit can recognize its reflection in them and not simply be merged with with flow of instinctive life. I wish to challenge the ' antropo centrism ' of th...

Re: Idealist vision for 2050?

Riffin; on ... there's purpose to it all ... we chose this ... we're all okay and everything is as it should be (within reason)... helps me look for every lesson and find beauty in things so many overlook.

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

PS: From a soul perspective, I came here not to go higher but to get grounded. Where we would agree, I suspect, is that the word 'humble' derives from the Greek humus and means earthly or grounded. Relating to the 'issue' of something/someone/someview being 'higher' vs. (humbly ;) ) 'lower' than an...

Re: Essay: Man, Know Thyself

In the course of evolution both the heart and mind must be refined . It's just that in our particular point of history, souls have different predispositions and for this reason different nuances of the path should be made available for them, to make the best use of the materials they have at hand. ...

Re: Consciousness matters

I've read all of the Seth books, and I would call him an idealist, and not a panpsychist. Of course, the label 'panpsychist' has various meanings, but the kind I am referring to are those who think there are fundamentally only material subatomic particles that also have some sort of simple consciou...

Re: Consciousness matters

What if consciousness is the basis and matter is ‘just’ its observer effect , in that observation (by consciousness) triggers the wave–particle duality to collapse into matter. Observation can be done by any combination of senses, maybe even spiritual senses. Also, what if, when we see a cup standi...

Re: Idealist vision for 2050?

P.S. As a way of recommending "The Michael Newton Institute" Facebook group , here a follow-up by a poster which I found there this morning: "I just want to state unequivocally for the record that this group is a lifeline for so many in this world. I know this because you're all a bea...
