  1. @Leo Gura You’re misinterpreting me. Silence is indeed the best teacher. All efforts to circumscribe reality using finite logical systems of any kind - e.g. human language - are incomplete (as per Godel). The best method to refine teaching thus initially involves employing more concise language, and ultimately - when pushed far enough - ends up in silence. Silence has no constraints.
  2. @Leo Gura Silence is the best teaching, right? Admittedly it’s less entertaining.
  3. @machiavelli He means that different deities representing absolute consciousnesses have separate independent dreams. To put it another way, he means that YOU (not we), are finite, and dream this dream as a point of infinite regression backwards - like how a black hole can expend a small quantity of light. Also, you have to bear in mind that each example of one infinity is actually several, and is expanding outwards. When you become infinite, infinity as you see it will be different from the infinity you had before you were seeking it. What this means is that the world sits on the back of a giant turtle, in turn standing on the back of another giant turtle, and so on... In essence, it's turtles all the way down. I hope this helps.
  4. The whole notion of suffering depends on the locus of attention. A person suffers. If you consider yourself a person then you will suffer.
  5. Best method is to keep smacking it against your head repeatedly until the sound stops fading away.
  6. And the truth is so radically different from the common perception of reality, that at some point your videos will inevitably seem like utter gibberish to most people. At some point you'll recognise that the English language - or in fact any known human language - is a poor vehicle for conveying ultimate truth. You'll begin a project to reduce the number of syllables used per sentence, and eventually you'll speak only the most profitable sounds that communicate directly with Wernicke's area of the left temporal lobe. In this way, you'll bypass the compression functions of the auditory cortex and thus reduce erroneous interpretations to the bare minimum. Instant enlightenment for everyone.
  7. @machiavelli Don't be depressed. It's not possible to achieve this realisation from watching a video. As an enlightened master, I can reassure you that the only way to achieve true realisation is to read the following words and take heed: The world sits on top of a giant turtle, and this turtle is standing on the back of an even larger turtle, which itself is part of a column of increasingly large turtles that continues indefinitely. If this doesn't fix your depression instantly you are not contemplating it deeply enough.
  8. God is trying to remember what it's like to be human and limited. Humans are trying to remember what it's like to be God and infinite.
  9. - Blindfold, lying down, do not take the blindfold off at any time. - Empty stomach - Headphones playing introspective classical / neoclassic music. Do all the above and you will at least double (probably much more) the potency of a trip.
  10. @RMQualtrough Very nice. One of the most "enlightened" posts I have seen on this forum. Very well written too. It reminded me of a documentary I've seen about a man with a seven-second memory. Definitely worth a watch:
  11. This has also been proven with John Wheeler’s Delayed Choice experiment in quantum mechanics. They altered millions of years of history - the path that light took around a star - by making a measurement in the present.
  12. Yes, but that’s not exactly what I meant. What I meant is that quite literally, your entire past depends on measurements, observations and/or ideas you are having right now. The past doesn’t exist until it is imagined right now. And the form it takes depends on what is being imagined.
  13. Simply this: The past does not determine the present. Rather, the present determines the past.
  14. I have thought about this deeply, and I don't recall ever feeling loved as a child. I had a father who beat me up, a mother who turned a blind eye, and an older brother who bullied me. I had noone to turn to, and suicidal ideation was pretty much the prevailing theme of my life from the earliest I can remember until I was in my mid 30s. I think this may be why my "heroic dose" mushroom trip a year ago was so insane in scale. I felt love, unmistakeably, for the first time in my life. It feels strange to finally know what it is.
  15. You're right. But it is possible to disidentify with the ego completely and permanently. You still realise it's there. It still reacts as it normally might, but *you* sit outside it.
