Recent email exchange with Bernardo

In response to some inquiries regarding the possibility of installing a comments function on the Essentia Foundation website, allowing feedback from readers and viewers of the essays and discussions being shared there, I'm sharing this brief email exchange with Bernardo:

Hi Bernardo ... some forum members are wondering if there will eventually be some way to comment on the EF presentations, within the website platform, as there is on your website blog posts? Also, is anyone at EF tasked with following and/or responding to comments on the youtube platform?

Cheers, Dana


Hi guys,
None of that is being done as of now. And we are experiencing a lot more interest than we thought we would have at this early stage, so nobody here dares raise the possibility of allowing for comments, which would overwhelm us even more. But long-term that would be nice, of course. At some point we may be accepting help from volunteers to help us deal with social media. If so, I'll announce it on the forum!

Cheers, Bernardo.

My further response to Bernardo ...

"Thanks Bernardo for the response ... What will be the driver behind anyone seeking a compelling idealist vision, if not to a great extent an utter dissatisfaction with the old deprived story, as in my own case? I've found no shortage of visions based in the primacy of consciousness that have been offered by various harbingers of the 'integral' stage, as envisioned by Jean Gebser and others, and which have a sanative element. When ready for it, those who've stepped irrevocably into the shift, so to speak, will be attracted to one of those, or they may envision a novel story of their own. I trust it may well be that these visions can eventually be subsumed into an overall prevailing one. In that regard, it's encouraging to see a collaboration of various visions coming together via the Essentia Foundation, now attracting a lot of interest from others wishing to contribute. So it seems it will draw even more purveyors of such visions together, in an effort to meld them into a cohesive and compelling vision ~ while bringing science into the fold, which is crucial if it's to be all-inclusively embraced. If nothing else, it's surely a step in that direction, and though it remains to be seen how effectively its journey will unfold, and not just miscarry in its nascent form, I remain optimistic that such an overarching vision can come from it.

Kind regards"

Can someone direct this to BK in case he isn't checking his Twitter? Pageau has a lot of followers and it would be great to hear a discussion between them.

I think Bernardo replied that he is game? Hopefully they can do that as it would be interesting.

Hi Bernardo, I would love to see you have a conversation with Swami Sarvapriyananda, a Hindu monk of the Ramakrishna Order who gives lectures and discourses on Advaita Vendanta. Here is a link to one of his lectures so that you get an idea of what his talks are about.
