  1. Maybe it's no longer free. Well, it is an important read. This is quite a good additional snippet of Ken talking about some limitations of postmodernism.

  3. What's your point? You're offering a superficial description without really saying anything.
  4. @Outer @MarkusSweden @Joseph Maynor Who of you has read Ken Wilber's free ebook Trump And The Post Truth World? Peterson's understanding of postmodernism, and the consequential nihilism is highlighted by Ken in this book, and is mirrored in everything Peterson has said. Wilber is extremely critical of stage green.
  5. Given his entire body of work is dedicated toward understanding systems, I'd say that's untrue.
  6. @Joseph Maynor Some have suggested it is the integration of stage red along the spiral dynamics development lines.
  7. What is he trying to be? I don't know. What he seems to be trying to do to me is trying to communicate the divinity of the individual, the logos, and why your spoken truth is what the world needs using mythological stories. He is also explaining how the idea that everyone is god is deeply intwined within our culture, English common law is built around that idea. He is also attempting to reconcile strands of science and religion, he uses components of neuroscience and psychology, and finds the links to mythological/religious stories and images. One example is the hemespheric structure of the brain, and the yin and yang being an early example of these hemespheres. Chaos, yang, is the right brain, and order, logic, is the left brain.
  8. By this you mean duality, division, I see. I think we are on the same page, with the exception of our language choice.
  9. A conceptualisation of observing a thought, sure. It is to be lost in thought. It is not awareness, it is content within awareness. I wouldn't call it a contradiction, just another frame which stands in the way of awareness.
  10. We do, which would mean we agree that thought, process and concept are indistinguishable.
  11. If the question was, what is a thought, but this is the processing of observing thoughts. What is the process of observing thoughts? Is that a thought? Is it a concept? What's the difference?
  12. 1: What is a process? Is it a concept? 2: What/who is influencing the thought? What is influencing the influence of the thought? See how far you can take this sequence of questions. 3: Where is concsiousness? Can you put your finger on it? Where does it start and end?
  13. First, drop the expectation of results. Second, drop the negative judgement of 'just sitting around with your eyes closed'. Third, find the space beneath the thoughts. Fourth, remember, meditation is an act of surrender, not an attainment. Finding the truth comes from unlearning the beliefs.
  14. Accept duality as a component of your non-dual development. To be attached to non-duality, is to be in duality, as you are rejecting duality. You have to be simultaneously non-dualistic and dualistic. Otherwise you're rejecting one for the other.
  15. You will have to suspend your disbelief for this technique as it sounds ludicrous. I have been doing it for a few months after having done a number of workshops with a community in the UK who I regularly visit to get all my group workshop itches scratched. The person in the video is someone I have worked with a number of times and I was really skeptical when I first started doing this and a number of other techniques, but this is great for building gut awareness and being connected to the awareness in your body. Generally I do this on my way to work and on my way home, it really gets you into your feelings and wakes you up in a number of ways. I have had a lot of deep realisations about my subconscious and it is a very direct mechanism for doing shadow work.
