[quote:Chaol:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyODM1NDNfNkM5M0I0MkM=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 12844162:MV84NzI1OTBfMzUyNzQ1ODdfRDhDQzkwNTE=] A few random thoughts regarding this thread: I found the concept of everything arising from nothing to be initially off putting and a bit disturbing. "Nothing" has a rather negative connotation in common use. When I reconsider it to be "no-thing" it becomes much more palatable. In a similar vain, I find the concept of all of what we experience to be an "illusion" to be rather negative as well, much as though you had said it was a "counterfit" experience. You could say that what we experience is an idea, and that would be more positive or you could say it is an "expression" and neither of these would carry the negative baggage that illusion does. It would seem that the idea of the "genius" or subconcious equates to "God", yes? By knowing God, we are promised a qualitative change in our experience which is to say we gain "joy" or the "peace that passeth understanding" what Chaol is describing is a way to gain more of the same experience more quickly with no commensurate qualitative change which seems a bit hollow. I am not meaning to be completely critical, I keep coming back to this thread because it is the most fascinating one on GLP! Cheers, and Happy New Year! [/quote] Earlier in this thread I've used nothing-in-particular, which is probably more accurate. It is not my goal to use language that is seen as positive. (I can't say I know much about what that might be, anyway.) But I also don't want to write too much (haha.. somewhat kidding) so I say "nothing" for short. However, to say it is an expression or an idea would not convey what I am trying to express. I think "composite" would be more accurate, though I don't want to use too many terms that seem technical. I try to write for everyone and no-one-in-particular. Genius would not equate to a more political or cultural (?) term like 'god'. The word carries too much weight and many implications. I experience joy in my life to be sure, but I do not write about "joy" or the "peace that passeth understanding". We are free to choose how to interpret our own experience (thanks, Jesse!). To me, a nice cold pizza is a joyful experience but perhaps others are looking for something more substantial. So I prefer to discuss tools that can be used for anything-at-all. You can decide what to do with it. (I don't mind any criticality. I look forward to it, actually.) Here's to an exciting 2013! [/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.
