  1. The valuable part of the ego needs to be preserved. The very purpose of our ego is to develop a unique individual personality. Without the ego we would just be the same bleak clone everyone of us. And I came to think of a tricky trick: to use my ego as usual with the added knowledge that the higher intelligence of the universe might influence me and my situation sometimes. I as an ego cannot pull on my own bootstraps and lift myself to the higher intelligence, but I can expect it to operate on my ego.
  2. What is the truth? The truth is that there is only Christ. The way and the TRUTH and the life. So there is only Christ. Satan is Christ's ego. Christ is just a label, but a clever one.
  3. Another idea I have is that ego relationships are give and take. Liberated people don't have anything to give and take from, ultimately. So the liberated people's relationships instead are a resonance! Even material things like a bank account. The liberated person doesn't own the bank account the way the separate ego does. Nor does the liberated person own a spouse, children or friends. It's a totally new way of experiencing reality.
  4. I have a new theory! Again. A collective consciousness might be possible with our minds connecting into a larger whole, but first I think it will be through feelings, where we develop a capacity to feel what others feel. And my idea is that only liberated people will achieve that because when we are in our ego identification there is a block due to the false sense of separation. Also, ego-to-ego connection with feelings will likely just produce a boost of nasty emotions. Not good. With liberation the connected emotions will be peaceful.
  5. Something important in relation to mindfulness is to notice that all our memories are based on the false sense of separation. And all our memories are based on the false idea that individuals can have intelligence separate from the the One intelligence. What progress do you expect to happen when memories are still believed to represent the truth? Very little progress! Maybe even making the situation worse. True mindfulness is judgmental and a process of removing past conditioning, and emptying of the cup of false believes and filling it with the cosmic breath of the One intelligence.
  6. After some not so extensive research it appears to me that there is a lot of mindfulness experience and knowledge, even mainstream research, yet it's still within the global ego! I believe that the complete goal is much more ambitious than that, such as described in the Bible: "I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality." - 1 Corinthians 15:50-53 So doing mindfulness practice from one's limited beliefs within the global ego will not cut it is my guess. The One intelligence must also be realized and that in my opinion requires going beyond mere mindfulness practice and expect not only some mental liberation but also a transformation of our biology.
  7. I came to think that when the individual dissolves then it's just the ego that is removed and we break into the higher evolutionary stage that Bruce Lipton described, which is oneness as humanity, not oneness with the entire universe. Earth as a whole being is just one holon level. The next holon is our galaxy the Milky Way as a oneness. I will do some research (watching YouTube videos ) about mindfulness.
  8. I mentioned somewhere that the extreme form of nonduality techings such as that of Tony Parsons might seem nihilistic, but that I find it useful when combined with the idea that evolution leads to more and more progress. Evolution is a move towards more good. And good can be defined as something working in harmony. A holon is simultaneously a whole and a part, and evolution leads to the formation of larger and larger holons, such as from atoms to molecules to single cells to multicellular organisms and to planets as whole organisms and so on. Tony said in the video that the separate individual is duality. I think it still can be useful to do mindfulness practice, in the sense of: "Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens. Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future." - https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/topic/mindfulness/definition My idea is that mindfulness practice can be made compatible with Tony Parson's explanation by adding the possibility that the individual doing the practice will dissolve after a while. That's the opposite of detachment which is the depersonalization disorder described in an earlier post.
  9. There is only one intelligence in the universe. The belief that the individual has a separate intelligence is an illusion. Jesus Christ saying "Not my will but Thy will be done" was not a surrender but a statement of what is. I will contemplate this for a while to see if this can be realized in practice.
  10. And actually, the Mandelbrot set is also a good analogy for time in my view. Here is the original depiction of the entire Mandelbrot set from 1978: Zooming out from the whole Mandelbrot set will not change the shape of the picture, only make it smaller. So one can think of the start of time as the whole Mandelbrot set and the future is generated by zooming into the Mandelbrot set forever. With this analogy time has a beginning but not an end. In this video it appears as if there is an end but that's just because the zooming in stopped, and in reality it's possible to continue to zoom in forever:
  11. If reality is timeless and changeless infinite information that is indestructible and forever just is, then what about the Buddhist concept of impermanence? My answer is that impermanence is a result of change in the moment, and instead of reality changing it is our perception that moves through the changeless information. As a simple illustration, consider the Mandelbrot set which is infinite timeless and indestructible information. The appearance of impermanence is achieved by a zooming in (or out) of the Mandelbrot set, like in this short video:
  12. Interestingly Bitcoin is in the spirit of the new layer on top of the internet. Not necessarily because the new layer will need cryptocurrencies but in the sense that Bitcoin is a trustless system that doesn't need centralized authorities such as banks. The word trustless might sound pessimistic but in the case of Bitcoin it means that instead of centralized authorities ruling and dominating, the system is decentralized with automatic control, hence removal of the need for trust in authorities. And a trustless system is necessary for the butterfly or the caterpillar authorities will take over and control the new layer.
  13. Another way to look at it is that the World Wide Web is a caterpillar which is growing bigger and bigger. And then the caterpillar reaches a point where it has grown big enough, and the growth stops, and a web starts to form around it forming a cocoon. So the World Wide Web isn't a cocoon yet! Because it's still growing. And the new structure on top of the internet that will replace the World Wide Web is the equivalent of the butterfly embryo. With this analogy, once the new structure appears it will start to grow bigger and bigger, forming the butterfly, while the caterpillar then, the World Wide Web, will get smaller and smaller.
  14. Why the need for a World Wide Web as a cocoon? And why the need to replace it? The reason is that the global ego is a structure, like all egos, based on a false foundation of separation. This means that the information in the world is tainted by immense amounts of manipulation, spin and lies. So the purpose of the World Wide Web is to capture most of the information of the global ego. But to try to sort out the false information from the true and valuable information can only be done from a higher level than the global ego, and that's why a new layer is necessary on top of the internet, that will gradually replace the World Wide Web over the span of a decade or so. I predict that we will see the start of the new layer on top of the internet within a year from today.
  15. I came to think of how Bruce Lipton is probably correct about the internet being the "nervous system" for next evolutionary level of humanity. But the World Wide Web on the other hand, that's the cocoon of the global ego! Even the name "Web" indicates an ensnaring structure, like a cocoon. The World Wide Web is an invention ON TOP of internet. So in theory, in principle, it's easy to remove the World Wide Web and replace it with another layer on top of internet. And the valuable information on the World Wide Web can quickly and easily be copied into the new layer, so that the "baby", the valuable information of our civilization, is preserved and only the bathwater, the World Wide Web, is thrown away.
