Of course we are a combination of many different aspects, ideas and experiences, but they are all contained in the one physical body, and that’s a fact whether we think of them differently or not.Quote
Susan: How would you describe the 'ethereal' parts of yourself?
My Reply: In simple terms, soul and spirit, tonal & nagual, depends on the many cultures who have different names for them. Egyptians actually believed in 5 or 6 different bodies (all within one another) in addition to the physical body. Susan, I know this will not be a satisfactory answer for you, but in my experience these other selves exist and have different functions. I think most people are not aware of soul/spirit except in a superficial way – that is until they die.
You can call it what you like, but even though the whole body works as a unit, and even though it appears that some science has found that the heart reacts as the brain does – a split second before we are aware of what we are going to do or think (although I doubt very much whether this idea that the heart works ahead of the brain is any more than simply a matter of the brain needing a little more energy to do its thinking), I do not accept the idea of ‘heart-centred intelligence’ as any more than a slightly more fanciful way of describing thinking in all its aspects.Quote
My Reply: Logic is brain centered. Logic is two-dimensional. Add to that, the brain is easily fooled. I operate on heart centered intelligence
To say that 'the brain is secondary to the heart has no physical, objective meaning.
You can have as many ideas of how the universe began as you like, but was not created – that implies a creator. No scientist can, nor will ever be able to, say exatly how the universe started, or whether it is one of a series, etc, but much has been explained, and certainly enough to reject the idea of some other something doing some creating.Quote
Me: Well, because I did not create the universe. There has to be some other explanation.
[[quote]Me: What about wind, music, emotions (heart based), time, and light. [/quote]
Wind – explained scientifically and objectively.
Music – an evolved aspect of the human brain (and probably of many animals too) to make and imitate sounds which vibrate on similar wavelengths, etc etc.
Emotions – Mountains of evidence about the way all living things have chemicals etc which produce feelings of all sorts and remain evolutionarily selected for for obvious reasons.
Time – a thing which happens and to which humans have given a name.
Light – a natural effect of enormous heat.
I think that will do for now!
