  • I like the concept, Bill. Ingenius! But I'm too nice to want to play. Yeah, yeah, I know I should never have joined in on a philosophical forum if I don't want to be involved in a 'match pair to the death' scenario. My bad. I'm young and idealistic enough to admit it. Mostly I feel that I just don't have the time. Chasing my tail around with words just don't appeal to me the way it...

  • Tom, > If humanity does move in the direction of Dick, the liklihood of > nuclear annilation would move from a possibility to a certainty. Yes. It is my deep conviction that the expansion of awareness is implicitly linked to the expansion of one's capacity to love. Linked the way two sides of a same coin are linked. It is not for me to dispute Dick's claims of higher awareness, I...

  • Dick, It appears to me that you express with a great deal of hubris for someone who professes as a healer of the psyche. I havn't read all your posts on mysticism - your tone is unbearably patronising - but you obviously don't agree with every other 'mystic' that expressing compassion for one's fellow human is a behavioral manifestation of the Love that is the source of all phenomena?

Yes, and we see these levels of order - the seeming predictability of various...

  • Tom, I'm not saying the universe is a product of randomness, I'm saying it is randomness. And what homosapiens experience as love is the harmony of that randomness. I suppose chaos has a bad name, because to the intellect it appears that chaos is the cold antithesis to life... But life is an order within chaos. Synchronicity, also. I guess I'm trying to say that chaos is the...

  • Tom, I gain so much respect for Einstein from reading your posts! I had no idea he felt all that, about the liberation of the self. But there is no reason why we should take the word of Einstein, or other great minds on these matters. Did any of them claim to be existentialists? The way I see it, the way that mysticism relates to this particular philosophy - and I'm not really...

  • Wow, Bill, that sounds intense! I wonder just what kind of room I have barged into? Perhaps I shall just sneak out again quietly... Lol, Sunshine [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • Oh thanks Jim! I was just sitting here, reading all you guys, and wondering why everyone was ignoring me. I think my posts are pretty inappropriate. Tom puts what I was saying into a much more philosophically digestible form. When I introduced myself as 'a self taught existentialist'... I think now what I meant was that I'm a mystic. I don't really like having this category put...
