Question away. haha They come from years of entheogen use, reading, meditating, living with nature and surviving only on what nature provides, 'drugs', family, friends, strangers, coincidences, epiphanies, God, Light, Shadow, Love, anger, confusion, existence as a whole from my perspective, deja vu's, movies, tv, dreams, imagination, orgasm...it goes on. I lived a good portion of my adult life contemplating existence in nature. Living outdoors, often with no tent or anything. Loved it. I am going camping this weekend(at least, it is planned! Pray no black widow bites this time!).moonbreeze wrote:Though your entitled to your beliefs of course, I am also entitled to question where they come from.
But there is a BIG problem with such a premise----the quantum physicists do not KNOW what matter is and they dont know what consciousness is. That is a mystery. And what we DO know is we are here in nature and as nature.
What worries me about the philosophy that 'all is illusion' is that it plays into the hands of the transhumanists who try and claim that life is like 'virtual reality' and that we can do any thing we want--because it is all illusion.
So calling something an illusion as as derogatory as claiming it is 'fallen', and/or needs-putting-right-by-elite-man. It is all the patriarchal mindset which cannot and will not understand and feel that nature is sacred.
moonbreeze, you seem to put a lot of YOUR perspective on other peoples motives. That is a really bad habit to do. Lighten up and dont go jinxing yourself. Sounds like you need to step back and check YOUR premises, you will most likely find at least one of them is wrong(thanks again Ayn Rand!).
we can do any thing we want--because it is all illusion
CAUTION, OPINIONS AHEAD. TAKE THEM AS OPINIONS.
That is silly. We are IN the illusion now. That DOES NOT mean there are no repercussions to our actions! The veil is just as real as you feeling pain by getting kicked in the groin, but it IS an illusion. When you touch a hot pan on the stove, what do you do? When someone hurts you, what do you do? When you are afraid, what do you do? Why? So you dont get burned or hurt any further, duh. lol
Putting right by elite man? Again, your putting YOUR twist on things.
