  1. What is really important for me when it comes to comprehension is that whenever I read/ hear about something new, a new concept, a new connection, anything, that I stop to contemplate about it for a bit. This really helps with actually integrating it into your understanding. You can really observe "Am I getting what is being pointed to?", & eventually get an intuative sense of if you are getting it, & what you aren't well you are enjoying the material.
  2. Value ain't an objective thing, value comes from someone finding value in something. There are a lot of people who value sports, and for many different reasons.
  3. Why don't you go find out for yourself?
  4. All desires come from the ego-self, nothing wrong with that, it is just doing its thing. Trying to surive the things that are identified with. Your real Self is happy regardless of circumstance, real desirelessness is pure bliss. Here is the thing about those options, one could be see as trying to push something away & the other could be seen as trying to pull something towards you. I would actually do both at the same time, even though it might seem contradictory, it actaully isn't. By doing this you will begin to see the pushing & pulling you are constantly doing, the whole dynamic, & start to understand it for what it is. You can get the ego-self to desire to be in alinement with Being. It is a lot easier to do this when you see the whole dynamic of what the ego-self is doing.
  5. @Someone here You could speculate for enternity about what Death is, but you won't get it until you are willing to die for it. Let go of this I that thinks they are awake, such silliness, there is no I. Come back home to the Love that You are, it is here, it is right underneath this story of "I", & thoughts about how things are a certain way.
  6. @AtheisticNonduality Hahaha, it is more about the music for me. I actually haven't watched the video very much. Sometimes you know the devil gets to decapitate someone, thats life
  7. I agree with @Space 5-meo is a very clear psych, there isn't much content change. Well, you aren't 100% godhead, You are. Psychedllics make it easier to see you, self, for what it is, thus making it easier to let go of that and be the real You, Self, Being. The context is the content, Truth is no-context. Any context you think it is, it isn't. Changing context gets you more angles to see things from, more perspective, but it is just more perspective, not the Absolute.
  8. @Rilles You know Magic Window is the best song on the album I have listen to A Beautfiul Place Out In The Country many times, some of their best synth design. One time I listened to Trans Canada Highway, while driving along the Trans-Canada Highway. Tycho has a much brighter atmosphere, he really mixes guitars and synths together well, to the point where you sometimes can't tell what is what. I would listen to his album Dive first.
  9. @Rilles Aparently they wanted to make Geogaddi seem like it was made by the devil, hense why it is 66 minutes and 6 seconds long, hahaha Still honestly one of my favorite albums, although Music Has the Right to Children is the one I always find myself going back to. Tycho's main influence was BOC, he did an amazing job integrating guitar music and electionic music. You can really feel the inspiration he got off of them. I have had many nights of walking around listening to BOC, getting lost in it, thinking about existence, the beauty of nature. They really do send you to some far out places.
  10. Used to listen to this one a lot, throbbing gristle definatly had an influence on my music. Oneohtrix Point Never's ablum Replica is a good one The band that really made me want to create my own stuff though was Boards of Canada Music has such a profound influence on culture, it is fancinating to contemplate about all the different types & the kinds of people that listen it. You could start making music to spread any kind of message you want, and if it is something that touches the people, you will move mountains.
  11. @Nahm Love your website, you are doing a great job with it!
  12. @SamC Narcasism isn't part of the personality types in my opinion, narcasism is ego. Yeah, perhaps some stages are easier then others to get threw depending on personality type. I think there are many different reasons why each person is on the forum, to find ways out of suffering, to understand things deeper, to find healing, to search for the truth, to uncover their passions, to help others find themselves, to be part of a comunity, etc.
  13. @SamC Not saying that personality doesn't influence worldview at all, of course it does. What I am saying is that spiral stages don't have set personalities that are at that stage, I think any personality type can be at any stage.
  14. @Onelove Spend time really feeling the emotions, to understand them, to be able to flow with them. What is this emotion showing me? What is under it? What beliefs are connected to this emotion? How can I channel this into something useful, beautiful, or constructive?
  15. That is typically what happens when someone isn't into you, they don't have any obligations to you. They are probably out there meeting more people, like what you would want to be doing if you wanna find someone who really is into you. They were not into you, & that is ok. Would you want to be in a relationship with someone who is not into you? No, of course not. So get out there, go meet lots of people. I would spend some time deconstucting the beliefs that you are not worthy or are ugly. Why do you belives this? Where did this belief form? What is its function?
