What we can call the Romance is based upon and or around what I call the significant experience, which falls well in line with… Continue reading Repost: The Significant Event, part 1

repost: Transformation and Conversion 

The Significant Event is to be distinguished from an event in reality. The Significant Event involves reality but never occurs in reality; it is the encountering of the point of contention. Significance itself may occur in reality as various events can begin a count of meaning in the arena of pure multiples (reality), from events… Continue reading repost: Transformation and Conversion

Duality is a simulated reality on top of non-duality

This very long essay on supposed spiritual-existential truth is A perfect example of how consciousness operates to make meaning. A construction of base to justify the ‘extra’ meaning that cannot be reconciled precipitates a further encompassing or underlying structure that serves to justify the position that poses a problem of reconciliation. The extent of the perpetual ‘falling back’ for meaning eventually forms a ‘true’ meaning that is the irreconcilable again placed into meaningful context (of meaningful reconciliation).

In other words, there is no ‘non dual’ truth, but only in as much a one sees that which is ‘dual’ contains within it a meaning that requires some reconciliation. There is no requirement for duality to resolve in any particular meaning, no necessary link from duality to some ‘non-dual’ unity of any sort.  

 (Further Commentary later).

Alexius´ Enlightened Non-Teachings

The real world, that is one and non-dual, cannot be seen in the world of duality, which is to compared to be a simulated world layered on top on non-duality. While you seem to be in this simulation all that you experience is virtual. The light of the sun is just as artificial as the light from a bulb. And whether love is perceived to be pure or not, it is not real – neither is loss or abundance. Nothing in the world of duality is real, no matter if it is experienced to be inside or outside of you.

Eyes do not see. It is the brain, that fabricate the images, you seem to ´see´. In fact the brain can produce perfect images of what seems to be a realistic world out there, even when your eyes are closed. In other words, you are deceived by the brain – but only because you want…

Mind Expansion

The problem with expanding your mind is once its been expanded it tends to become quite opinionated as to what expanding ones mind really means.  It begs the question of whether it is really as good a thing as one might have thought - that is, before it was expanded.

Where is reason?

Philosophy Alive

The mind in nature sees something nature cannot – itself.  It introduces unique faculties into nature, such as intention, design and reason.  Reason is regarded as our ‘highest’ faculty – a fact seen as a part of nature and apart from nature.  We observe that the facts we illuminate and explain in nature don’t reason or find things out about themselves; nevertheless, we conclude that everything belongs to something else that causes it to be the way it is.  We use our unique faculty of reason to tell ourselves that we are not alone, adducing that our perception of the world as it is, is caused by the world as it is.

Everything has a cause, including causality.  Causality is a statement of reason that the mind projects upon the world.  We impute powers to causes by identifying with them the fact of change – as if the cause holds…

Intensionality

Contrary to Hersserl and those phenomenal agents, intension is not centered in some thoughtful subject; it is centered in the object. This is the essence of the meaning of multiplicity. There is no origination of thought in a central, unitive subject agent of transcedence. There is only the fullness of imminent existence taking place in… Continue reading Intensionality
