Thankyou. Life would be the first two, and death would be the last two. The reason for item three (degradation) is because of the aging process. When you get to a certain "old" age, your body and possibly your mind begin to fail gradually. Even healthy folks cannot stop the aging process which leads to first degradation of bodily functions, then ultimately death. I knew a man I worke

Then, Susan, you would know that I described the cycle of existence from start to finish. What I don't understand is your reluctance to engage in discussion about that cycle. Or, at least say yeah or nay about my four simple words. It actually seems that my option to start a discussion about the most well known fact of reality is not popular; at least not popular to you. My one attempt to "d

You guessed wrong Susan. I made it short and sweet. No complicated stuff. Just a simple question about something everybody knows.

Before I add a new topic, I will say that I am like your two friends. I am stubborn and waylay my "best" intentions. For example, I smoke cigarettes and suffer coughing spells. Yet I continue. Other traits of my character are self-destructive. However, as I age, some of those addictions just don't work anymore for me. I let go when it becomes a REAL PROBLEM in my livelihood. Now on t

Here is a song that I haven't heard since 1978, when I played it for a woman. As happens, the path led elsewhere.

Excellent, Ray. Though you are referring to the "mechanical" usage of belief, the projection of our constitution concerning any valuable teaching, I am really trying, again, to establish the actual "process", of belief itself. As always, I veer toward the mind and all of it's adjuncts. Belief is a powerful force of energy in the mind. We are capable of vast amounts energy

It is obvious that "off topic" scenarios do occur, depending upon the personas that adhere to a strict allegiance to the rules of discussions. That is fine and dandy for some here. I was always loose-fitting to any rigorous standards. What I don't understand is the curriculum of "discussion" which is allayed by scrutiny and logical assessments. I can only proceed by my intuiti

It seems to me that we get "off topic" rather quickly here. Yes, I used the word "belief", so where are we now?

Gerda, we are all responsible for creating our "persona". That is the way of things. I really don't see Susan as a problem. If it takes me longer to explain my ideas then that too is a part of my persona. Not everybody likes long-windedness. Some want curt and to the point questions, and next short answers. That's ok. I am accustomed to ridicule by others. That doesn't mean that I f

Just a note here about the little book: "Shambhala the sacred path of the warrior". "The master warrior guides his students with patience, and he also provides gentleness-being without aggression. Then he also guides his students by being true-being stable and solid...So the idea here is that being true is being solid and completely stable, like a mountain. You can rely on the s

Ron, I do have some related concepts of reality. Yes, information is a big word implying that so much detail is part and parcel of the Grand View. Yet, we are invoked within the trenches of this debate about what is real and how does that reality expand itself beyond mere words. I can only allow so much tit for tat on this forum. It is obvious that some drain the content of inspiration, frequentl

Hidden, whether it is Mind, or possibly not based on current truths, (dark matter/energy) it is very plausible due to the amount of Thought energy/matter. What I mean is that we have as yet no meausurement of Mind technically speaking. The "coagulation" of Mind into that 95% is a stretch of imagination; perhaps some have edduced that fact from mental deliberation. I have no problem ass

The point is that I was giving some examples of the nature of reality, as variations of intent. I chose Parmenides who declared that reality is reliable: not nothing. So, that's the sum of it.

It makes sense that negatives are unnatural to our brains. It actually requires effort to negatize something. Whereas, a positive is absolutely effortless; it agrees with the standard of health and well being. I have had negative verbal exclamations due to my confusion at times. It is never easy to accept the downside of proclamations and the reactionary "No!" I do prefer a positive not

That's it Yve. Reason it out. We start from what? A seed/egg combo. Rapidly the cells double until a form comes into being. The rest of our life is "spent" upon all of our ghostly maneuvers, here, there, everywhere, and just as much HERE, where we are. If indeed the ghostly motions should stop for a moment, then we are a snapshot of our beingness. Look quick, for none of us wait to do t

This is no laughing "matter". E=MC2. This is Einstein's famous equation. We all know what Energy is, or do we? It has taken millenia to come to this conclusion. What was Einstein proposing? He was proposing the FIRST INGREDIENT which is Energy. The MC2 was and is the categorical complementation of Energy: matter × the speed of light squared. Here, it is evident that the speed of l

Oh yeah, you took a big bite out of that!!! Consider a hot-air balloon: it is very unpredictable and near immpossible to control. Why am I bringing this up? Because the similarity with space, in general, is very much like that balloon. Plenty of light gas and flimsy fundamental materials (tiny collections of matter). Space also being very absent of very much mass, is just like a balloon; fragile

In answer to your first question about those "terms": the terms of any project that presumes to edify people. In other words, it is the propaganda of such organized edifices in the real world. Religion is only one edifice of thought; and politics, as well as other main avenues of practice and premise are very subtle to maintain the status of public behavior under the guise of beneficiar

Perhaps, also, particular emphasis on religion was a single step, and not exactly the best example of my conclusions about the superstitious habits of people. For me, I suffered superstitions in my youth. And so I SOUGHT OUT the words and behaviors of other, more sophisticated folks to "guide" me. Big mistake!! I was too caught up in the search to bother looking within for my support. B

I will answer your question, but AGAIN, it is not directly about Zoraster at all. I could have used Moses or any other ancient source of the good/evil dichotomy. The book is a "Textual source for the study of Zorastrianism", by Mary Boyce. (1984).

Not so. I added the trickster as an example of clever arguements within ANY organization, including but not limited to the habitual usage of language to SWAY THE GULLIBLE to accept the terms of an arguement or some dictate as well. This is not exactly ABOUT Zoraster, his religion or his times in history. It is about the gullibility of superstitious humankind to accept those terms that are expound

I guess that the second part of the intro was basically ignored, for that was my main point: superstitiousness. Zoraster was a convenient original religion to start with to explain the frustration I have been having on this OP. I will now add another angle to this OP: The Trickster. It is my past experience that both the mythology and the archetype indicate, in my understanding, of this na

Eddie, just to answer you, I am not interested with "power" as I have seen others crave. "Control freak" comes to mind. My boss said that I take it "on the chin". Not exactly, because I am about controlling MYSELF, most of all. I am wary about any notions of power because it costs to flagelate others, as some folks like to do. I want nothing to do with Power.

Yve, I totally agree by the point of not wanting the hassle anymore. Other than my part time job, I have little interest in "relationships". I am a senior now and want to keep it simple as possible. Probably here I get feedback, wanted or not. But that just shows how we still reach out somewhere, somehow. I don't talk to my co-workers about the things I share here. They are acually amus

Eddie, I will get back to you. In the meanwhile, I have read The Second Messiah with the introduction to some quotes: "All the evidence strongly suggests that Jacques de Molay was widely considered by many to be a holy martyr, and by some to be the second messiah who had, once again, been murdered by the Roman establishment..." The period of de Molay (who was the last Grand Ma

Surely you know of examples of such distastful behavior of history of abuse by the Roman Catholic Church during the "dark ages" in Europe. Then there is the unquenchable appetite of the Spaniards to conquer the inhabitants of the New World. Currently another religion has had their positives challenged by the dastardly acts of the few ingrates among their own. I think you remember cu

Thanks Eddie. I can only verify how the opprtunists have regularly taken the name of any religion to expand their own kind of mischief against anyone not in the class of "believers". In fact, that was, and is the stipulation of any "belief founded" religion: classification of others without justly looking at their own "belief". I get the idea that "belief"

Hi, Yve. I was just concerned about the side effects of such a calamity brought on early in the recorded history. In fact that is all that it seems to be, today. It is my conjecture that establishing a "rare" polemical display of a very outstanding format of organizing humankind into classes or conditions has made progress in human development toward a personal self-discipline a very ha
