I wonder if thinkers/writers of such statements realize
that any such explanation about maya is, also, mayavic,
along with whatever else they may be, in as much as such
wordings are predicated on dualistic (and thereby
mayavic) initial assumptions, so . . . Leon, I suspect that
you realize something about the sense in which
"INITIAL ASSUMPTIONS" have a mayavic aspect to
them (or?), but I'm often left wondering about the "more
specific" nature of your understanding re that subject.
Not that you're not left wondering about "my
understanding" of this and that, but, then, like I said in a
recent PS (to the effect of): I prefer to keep my distance
in keeping with my "speculative stance;" not that . . .
Leon, I often find myself wondering, when reading your
"zero/lay-point ABC posts," about the senses in which
you might interpret maya, because, as I tend to see it,
your posts have seemed, to me, on the whole, kind of
biased (sort of "compared to my posts," as I tend to see it
. . . ) on the exoteric side of things. Although, lately, I
seem to have detected a somewhat broader and "more
esoteric" meaning in your posts. And not that my posts
are nearly as much in "the language of this age," by a
long enough shot, obviously enough. But/"but" . . .
Here's a quote from Gerald that I find myself sort of
<<But behind all of this, we need to remember that the
One Substance of spirit-matter is itself maya, because
otherwise we will tend to get too caught up in it and
take it all too seriously.. Neither matter nor spirit exist as
they appear to. This one substance of spirit-matter is, in
fact, neither different nor separate from our own
Apparently that "One Substance" has been called
PS All this brings to mind Larry's post about the chicken
that crossed the road, so: Leon: To understand how the
chicken crossed the road in the scientific language of this
age, see my ABC's, charts, and diagrams on my web site.
Mauri (speculatively): So? That's nice that the chicken
crossed that road, but, doesn't it behoove Theosophists to
concern themselves with what is really going on, instead
of getting all caught up exoterics?
PPS "Actually" (I hope I'm not "actualing" too late . . .),
I kind of like your scientizing of Theosophy, Leon, but
especially whenever you make comments that I can
interpret (if in my speculate way) that seem to suggest, to
me, that you have some kind of "realistic handle" about
maya in relation to your "language of this age." I suspect
that whether your language of this age succeeds or fails
might have to do with what you have to say about maya.
