[quote:Chaol:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyNzk2MDBfN0U1REU5N0U=] [quote:panoukos:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyNzMxOTdfNUIwOTMxNzU=] [quote:Chaol:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyNzE1NjhfRTEyRTUwN0M=] I think that my response can be summed up as, "point B is never clearly defined". As we cannot perceive of something directly, so too would point B not be perceived directly. Thus, we cannot clearly define it. [/quote] That is how I see it too. I wrote it to Unit3 using different words: [i]"[i]We think that point B is in the realm of our imagination. But this realm is blurry to us. But since we live in our imagination/dreams (our subjective world, as we call it), the realm of reality also looks blurry (because we always see reality from the perspective of our dream). So, it seems that defining point A is the hard bit."[/i] [quote:Chaol:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyNzE1NjhfRTEyRTUwN0M=]To put it an other way, if you want to drive to Arlington you could: 1) Ask questions and provide answers consciously, perhaps by looking at a map 2) Get in the car and go somewhere specific. It doesn't matter where. I am suggesting #2, with the important point to have a clear idea in mind about any destination. It need not be Arlington in order to get to Arlington. [/quote] Nowhere in my posts suggested what one could do if he wants to be in Arlington (asking Q&As, looking at the map etc). I wrote that we need Q&As [b]to produce[/b] "Arlington". After that, our job is done and the Genius will take over. No need to talk about #1 and/or #2. However, I honestly see the value in helping us remember that B is here with us, at point A. Maybe asking Q&As about B will somehow reveal where A is. Where we stand "now". And then we may not need to define anything. We will just float towards it. [/quote] <<So, it seems that defining point A is the hard bit.>> Indeed, though it may be difficult to understand that for most of us. But "point B" is a value in the now and here. (And our perspective of point B will be different when we get there.) Defining point A or B is impossible because of the nature of perspective. We have only to define [i]something[/i] and work with it as though it was either. So, that's why I say the questions and answers are irrelevant. They need not be relevant to be useful. [/quote]
I have been living in this world for some time now.
I came from a place also named Earth, much like this planet. There are a number of differences between my home and yours.
I thought it would be interesting to share a few things with you that are relatively common knowledge where I am from. My reasons for doing so will probably be more apparent in the future.
* Consciousness does not exist (but relationships do)
* Matter is gravity that has been structured
* We are not human (we are perspectives)
* When the totality of something cannot be grasped, it appears infinite.
* Space is not physical
* There is no "now" or "here", but relationships.
We use a kind of language like you use numbers here. Numbers, representations of abstract concepts, were 'invented' to work more easily with the world around us. Our language is no different.
If it were invented today it would probably be thought of as existing in parallel with science. A new kind of science.
This language also enables the shifting of perspective like a kind of mental technology. Some of you may find it quite interesting.
If anyone is interested in learning more please let me know.
