The Riddle of
"Claiming that the brain is the source of
everything we perceive (sensations, images, feelings and thoughts) is like
claiming that a radio composes music, or that a TV writes the script for a show.
A processor looks a lot like a creator. The brain is doing lots and lots of
things at the atomic and even quantum level, as is a radio. But none of these
activities turns the inconceivable into the conceivable. A rose has no color
until the visual cortex processes the information from photons striking the
retina. That is indisputable. But nobody can spot how a neuron in the visual
cortex suddenly "sees" red. All one can measure is chemical activity and tiny
bursts of electricity. There's no seeing in that. Likewise, a neuron can't
"feel" the hardness of a desk or "smell" a rose, yet we can...." Meet

The Open Secret with Tony
We are superexcited to inform you that Tony
Parsons will be giving a talk at SAND13 in The Netherlands.
Tony is one of the very few teachers of our time that is
relentlessly pointing to the "impersonal" and we highly appreciate his work in
these days in which a lot of what we call non-duality is becoming dangerously
close to the self-help movement with teachers attempting to please the seekers
mind and make them feel better...
Thanks Tony for trusting us with your

The SELF - the greatest trick your mind ever
The last issue of the New Scientist "The SELF
- the greatest trick your mind ever played" - WOW... the ancient mystics'
understanding about the Self is becoming main stream science now and yet a long
way to go until humanity embraces it.
