An interview with
Scott Kiloby, Parts 1 and 2
This is an interesting Yelp review of the Science and Nonduality
This was the first time that I have attended the Science
and Nonduality Conference and I was impressed by all of the Western Buddha's
gathered together in the same place, at the same time. It was something akin to
a Western version of the Kumbha Mela but just on a smaller scale. I am glad that
I was present to see and to experience this.
It was truly amazing to be
in the presence of so many beings who have a loving awareness, presence and
energy. I found the whole experience to be beneficial, healing and uplifting. I
especially enjoyed the spontaneity, carefree and open attitude of the majority
of the participants. The impromptu conversations and deep philosophical
discussions in the hallways made me feel like I was with people who were
speaking the same language. I absorbed much from the presenters that was
I do think that the nonduality aspect of the Conference is being
given more weight than the science side and that is problematical if we intend
to create a new society based on new models and new technologies. I don't see
"Enlightenment" as a panacea, as I think that we must address and solve the bulk
of our problems through knowledge and practical applications, rather than
through wishful thinking. I think that fresh philosophical, theoretical and
practical models are possible but...we must get back to Beginner's Mind...scrap
our assumptions and start fresh!
There are two main areas that I would
like to see more fully developed at or through future SAND Conferences: 1.
Methodologies for spiritual realization, and, 2. New Science and New Technology
Here is a list of some of the discussions/presentations
that I didn't see that I would like to see at future SAND Conferences:
Cymatics - The Relationship Between Frequency and Form
2. Tao Te Ching
3. Richard Rose - Philosophy/Spirituality
4. G. I.
Gurdjieff - Cosmology/Psychology
5. Walter Russell - Model of
6. Albert Roy Davis/Walter C. Rawls - Theory of Magnetic
7. Douglas Harding - Clear Seeing Methodology
Kundalini - Exploration of the Kundalini Process
9. Psychology as Physics
- Is the Psyche Composed of Gaseous/Plasma Substance that is Formed by
Magneto/Electro/Frequency Based Forces
10. Transmission - What is
Spiritual Transmission and How Is it Effected
mentioned or suggested by other participants/presenters:
1. Syntropy -
The Opposite or Corrolary of Entropy
2. Modeling - Better 3D Mathematical
Models to Define/Describe Reality
3. No-Matter - The Concept of "Matter"
as Unnecessary, False or Misleading
4. Single-String Theory - The Theory
that Reality is One Contiguous or Continuous String
Language - Is it Possible to Make the English Language More Relational or
6. Intimate Relationships - Do the Sexual
Hang-Ups/Inhibitions Disappear After Self-Realization?
7. New Society -
What Will A New Society Look Like?
I look forward to more collaboration
in-between SAND Conferences and at the next Science and Nonduality Conference. I
thank the organizers, sponsors, presenters and participants for making it what
it was. Also, I want to especially thank the staff at the Embassy Suites, both
the restaurant staff for good meals and the Hotel staff for a good
