  1. Some distinctions I noticed. Could be wrong, intuitively I feel the categories have relevance. ----------------------------------- Hinduism: Moral Relativism. Pantheistic God(Brahman). Enlightened caste holier than thou. Avatars. Buddhism: Amoral, No God/Atheistic, overcome Maya/Illusion(Evil). Accountability. Life negating, birth control (anti-clockwise swastika) Taoism: No Morality, if one follows "the way" how is morality relevant? It's not. Character Virtue: 3 Treasures; Kindness(Frankincense), Humility(myrrh), Simplicity (Gold). Islam: Moral Absolutism, Pantheistic God. Evil as spirits, such as jin. External Evil, those that will not submit to Allah and his prophet. Jainism: Moral Pluralism. Focus on habit, Karma Evil to be overcome. Accountability. Life affirming. (Clockwise swastika). Some form of ascension. Judaism: Morality. Messianic. Christianity: Transcendental Morality, Transcendent God. Accountability. Internal Evil, to be overcome, Risen Lord. Tengrism: No Morality. Sky god (Maya). Will to Power. Nordic Paganism: No Morality. Maya, Hall of the Mountain King, Narrative. A Pantheon of Gods(but flawed....), , . Aesir(lifeforce) fight the Vanir (Presumably, the Vain Beings) Will to Power Satanism: Amoral, Life affirming, Logical outcome of Objectivism, Will to Power. Scientology: No morality, ascent to godhood. Maximum Optimism. Conflux: Mad World, Donnie Darko or Nietzschean Universe. Heraclitus (the weeping philosopher) Maximum Pessimism. Drew the short straw, in absolute infinity. Eternal recurrence. Tangent Universe. --------------------------------------- Pantheism or Atheism, are functionally no different, As Spinoza noted,.... or even Deism. Spinoza's universe is absolute, as the one substance is God, which confers with a Newtonian(a Deist) absolute universe. However, I agree with Leibniz that the Universe is relativistic, as confirmed, but initially rejected by Einstein(bias towards Spinoza). Moral Relativism becomes obsolete as soon as people articulate moral judgements. Absolute Morality involves knowing, and is therefore a contradiction.
  2. How you process information matters. I thought it was interesting looking at, neural activity scan, heat or something. No eyes and you're not reading this forum.
  3. I thought Donald: Meaning World Ruler, was pretty cool. Trump: meaning triumph or something like a Trump card was also pretty cool. I think it shows how the Ego usually works in a regulating manner. I listened to his book on audible since he is president. "Art of the Deal." Kind of a take no prisoners, approach. Worked in construction, debt collection, and rent control. Before going into more mercantile real estate deals, high degree of responsibility, but less ownership. I suppose a different kind of temperament could push someone towards alcoholism, being around people focused on the bottom dollar. Although what major world leader or politician is not messed up, they all are.
  4. Few thoughts. Awareness: I suppose you could feed your awareness. Audiobooks, looking at all points of view. Going for "a bigger boat". I like audio because you can turn off the sound if you're a bit of a gamer and listen to books instead. It might be possible to have limited awareness and more consciousness, which may decrease & increase respectively. Strange glimpses of future places in dreams, could be brain damage or some glitch. Or knowing the next song on the radio. I fairly sure it is possible to have vast awareness, but a lack of consciousness, like skynet from terminator. Yeah going for one thing is pretty important. Kundalini/meditation, Gym, More knowledge, Relationships. Suppose keeping a commonplace to organise as you go, is fairly useful. Leviathan, (or Behemoth(The Bull)): Personally though I think the serpent, can takeover, like in many religions, symbol for the unconscious I think. The idea that there is no price to pay for such an increase in consciousness unearned, doesn't strike me as right. Still curious though. People before and after psychedelics or perhaps kundalini are not the same, subtle twitches and flinching. It's not like adding more books to a library. Hermeas Mora, from the Elder Scrolls games. Yog-Sothoth, Lovecraft, Proteus, from Shakespeare. The creature out of LOTR in the pool. "do not disturb the water". Serpent from Dragon Age Origins. Deep Rising. Spectre and so on. --------------------------------------- Yog-Sothoth is coterminous with all time and space yet is supposedly locked outside of the universe we inhabit. Its cosmic nature is hinted at in this passage from "Through the Gates of the Silver Key" (1934) by Lovecraft and E. Hoffmann Price: It was an All-in-One and One-in-All of limitless being and self—not merely a thing of one Space-Time continuum, but allied to the ultimate animating essence of existence's whole unbounded sweep—the last, utter sweep which has no confines and which outreaches fancy and mathematics alike. It was perhaps that which certain secret cults of earth have whispered of as YOG-SOTHOTH, and which has been a deity under other names; that which the crustaceans(Jordan Peterson fans) of Yuggoth worship as the Beyond-One, and which the vaporous brains of the spiral nebulae know by an untranslatable Sign... Yog-Sothoth sees all and knows all. To "please" this deity could bring knowledge of many things. However, like most beings in the mythos, to see it or learn too much about it is to court disaster. Some authors state that the favor of the god requires a human sacrifice or eternal servitude. ---------------------------------------- NO NOT BILLY!!!!!!!! GET TO THE CHOPPA! oh wait wrong movie, same movie.
  5. “Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea? Alice: Well, I haven't had any yet, so I can't very well take more. March Hare: Ah, you mean you can't very well take less. Mad Hatter: Yes. You can always take more than nothing.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
  6. @danton I thought J. Krishnamurti, was excellent for improving my awareness. But he talks so slowly..... Came across videos on Youtube, a while a go. Helped expand my awareness. I suppose shifted me away from materialism, even though it has been debunked for the last 300 years in many philosophical and seemingly scientific works, wasn't aware of that. I found his criticism of OSHO interesting. Where he said Guru's are all terrible people, or something like that. Was thinking about getting audiobooks of OSHO's speeches off audible, but after watching some clips, in one he flinched... Plus the whole thing with OSHO followers/cultists hording weapons, and the largest biological terror attack in USA history, bought up some suspicions. "I know nothing Mr Fawlty." As for U.G seems like Schopenhauer Mk2. Believes in nothing, but everything is unity or Brahman.
  7. “Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.” Kahlil Gibran.
  8. Process of elimination. 1) If it refers to other works, read the other works. Instead of the regurgitated("recycled") stuff. 2) If it's dogmatic or a complete system be suspicious. 3) Audible is pretty good for books. Scribd is also good. 4) If it's not written in blood, it's probably not worth reading. 5) Have the various metaphysical or meta-psychological positions contrast for supremacy. 6) When in Rome. 7) Use in wood burner.
  9. Eyes bigger than your stomach? Make a God out of Maya: Skrymir, Tengri. A song "Layla" or something.
  10. I accept the climate changes.
  11. Not much idea about Buddhism or Jainism. But, at least according to wikipedia, buddhism is focused more on Maya where as Jainism involves habit. I think Jainism makes more sense. Potentially a more powerful metaphysic.
  12. Average doctor, yeah. Average medical doctor, I would say more than the average footballer. Entertainment is zero sum and healthcare is negative sum. I would say capitalism was created due to time preference.
  13. Antagonist. Blow stuff up have some fun. He's amoral. But as for taking the leading role, Keith Ledger's The Joker dominated. Batman is totally focused on alleviating symptoms, when there is real spiritual poverty. Which Batman makes worse. My Boomerang won't come back.
  14. I think a more interactive forum where you can do voip would be cool, don't necessarily know tone, whether someone is joking, culture etc. "Discord" can be interesting, more about having a presence and awareness. Form at least pseudo relationships. I think heterachy(Horizontal) would be more favourable to a disabled person than a hierarchical structure. Not like communities are as close as they were, in general. Yeah probably presence is important. Can zone out more easily, without perhaps a disability. Might be like, how a blind man listens better.
  15. I suppose humour. "like tears in the rain". Other than that Cold Rage, as hate is effectively a crime. Less attachment as well. Recently bought Sadhguru's inner Engineering Book a Yogi's guide to inner Joy! on Audible. "Joy Joy Feelings". Trust him more than OSHO, will see if I still do after listening to his book. I haven't. For Cold Rage I tend to think of the following execution clip or something like the "Iceman." Play or characters VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED VIETNAM WAR EXECUTION.
