I post rarely here (read often) however I find your subject(s) most interesting so I hope, time permitting, to participate this month.

btw I really enjoyed your poem: To love like God - A mystics poem. That is a source for some future questions perhaps I might even be brave enough to start a separate topic thread ?

As an ice breaker a comment on the world as an illusion question from Carol and your response.

The advaita vedantists call it Maya don't they? I note even brilliantly articulate Swamis such as Vivekananda struggle(d) to explain it clearly to western minds.

My thoughts comments:
The table or garage door or hard drive IS NOT SOLID! It is not even "real" as we would naturally think of it. It is of course ultimately just "energy" and we don't have a very good idea yet what that (energy) is!?. The object is mainly atoms which is mainly vacuous SPACE which we think of as NOTHING! and the tiny "particle parts" themselves are just arranged or compressed energy as well!
Our bodies including our brains and the dna etc , are all the same magic stuff, which we try to give names for but ultimately it all has to be energy arranging itself in, seemingly to us, various forms.

Two magnets with like poles opposed feels like there is a spongy substance in between even in a highly vacuous enclosure is it real or is it an illusion? What is it ? the scientists say 'a field' but a field of what!?. An aether ? which is described as something existing but beyond our capacity to identify.

No real pointy questions for you yet Thomas, I am just breaking ice with comment to encourage myself to ask you some heavy duty questions here hopefully soon.

Somehow I think this will be a very busy month for you, thanks for being here and I know we will all enjoy your contribution.

Cheers & thanks again
Steve
