  1. If you understand what you understand then I don't know why you are bothering with this either. Absolute is ineffable. You can't communicate it, you can only dance around it with language. Every person can only see it for themselves and no other way. I can only communicate with you through concept
  2. I think you are trying to point to the nature of something being itself. i.e. Good is Good, Bad is Bad etc. in other words saying the fundamental nature of something is itself. And that this distinction is between Absolute and Relativity. I think you are chasing your own tail a little bit because you can make distinctions about what something is ad infinitum and from infinite perspectives. From an absolute perspective BLUE is BLUE and NOT-BLUE i.e. non-duality. From a relativistic perspective blue is a colour seen relative to a human's eye sight, for example. Even though you are saying BLUE is BLUE (i.e its fundamental essence) this is still relativity because to distinguish BLUE being BLUE you have to accept that it is not NOT-BLUE, which is duality. From an absolute perspective BLUE is infinity. To insist that the nature of something is its nature is just mind and word games. It doesn't get you anywhere. And fundamental nature of anything (as you describe it) is just concept i.e. Swarmness is a concept made to identify swarms within infinity. It's not really its fundamental nature, it's just an illusion made by mind. The fundamental nature of a swarm is Swarmness, not-Swarmness, and everything in between, i.e. infinity.
  3. The notes for most of the beginner videos have been curated here: for the more advanced videos just listen to them and take action. You don't need to memorise every little detail as that would be a huge waste of time. Read through the textbook for a big overview to get yourself oriented and then just start doing the practices. There is a whole list of exercises to start doing on the first couple of pages. Once you understand the foundational theory, the more advanced videos will be like pointers approaching this work from varying perspectives, you wont have to make detailed notes, maybe just a few bullet points per video. Hope that helps
  4. I have been contemplating how the process of creation works. If I am God, how is it that I create the things that "I"/the ego self/the human self observes and does the human self have any control over it. From the God perspective do I create everything and then choose to experience said creations from many different perspectives, forgetting that I created them and then believing that I am the false ego identity? For example, I as god create a business meeting between two people. I split myself into the room, the table, the two people, the chairs etc. And do I then choose to experience the situation/aspects of myself as God from the perspectives of each of those parts? I.e. I am one person and the other person interacting with each other as ego selves but in actuality I am just god interacting with myself? Also can situations be created by the ego self? I/my human form is currently studying diseases. Through my choice to study diseases I now know more about them. By knowing more about them I actually am able to recognise more things in the environment, such as person with disease x or disease y. In this way have I created diseases in my experience by choosing to study them? Was the choice to experience leading to a newfound knowledge, which then crystalized into "material" existence for my ego self to experience? And does the ego mind have any control in creating experiences? I assume so because it is a part of god? But is it limited? I, as the ego self don't think i can materialise $1 mil cash on my lap. But sometimes I have these very weird experiences where I say in my mind that something will happen and it happens. I was standing by the conveyor belt which moves luggage that has just come off of a plane and I was looking for my suitcase. i was standing for a good 5 min and my suitcase wasn't coming. I decided to test out my creative power and just focussed my mind on seeing and honestly believing that my suitcase would come out next. It was a sincere thought and I pushed that thought with a lot of mental power. And literally as I was pushing this thought with my mind, my suitcase came out onto the conveyor. This has happened a couple other times where it's too frequent for me to feel it's a coincidence. Although I'm not sure? It could just be a coincidence? or could it be that I have a creative power that allows the human to experience things. Often when I try to do something it will take months before it 'materialises' in 'my' life. For example, I want to start riding a motorbike. After 3 months I got my licence. It will take some more months to save up some money, it will take another month to find a bike etc. After a number of months I will go from wanting a bike to it actually being my experience (i.e. sitting on a bike and being able to ride it). Is this an example of the creative power of mind? Is it possible to "wish" things into existence? Can I just think really really hard about $1 mil in my bank account and it comes the next day or does that thought have to play out over months and years because I as a human don't have full god creative capacity. I.e. I get the thought about $1 mil, and then I spend years training up skills, starting a business, etc. etc. etc. until I'm x-years into the future and have $1 mil in my account? From an ego point of view I have all these wants I want to have right now - sex, money, freedom etc. From a no-self point of view "I" am silently observing a "human" walk around all day having these "thoughts" about sex,money,freedom. From a higher perspective, "I", "human", "thoughts", "sex" "money" "freedom" does not compute, all of it is just being. How does the creation of all these things happen? Does mind, help "pick out" the desired experience from the infinite that is here and now and crystallise the desired experience? As a human can I meaningfully change my circumstances with thought or will everything just play out as it's meant to, me receiving everything I need at the exact time I need it?
  5. @Serotoninluv can I please request this to be moved to 'high consciousness resources' so it's in a more appropriate place?
  6. Regarding the space kangaroo from the last video. I saw these mushrooms while walking in a forest in New Zealand. It was a total and complete mindfuck, I'd never seen anything like it. Made me realise that there are so many things I don't know exist in reality.
  7. @Mikael89 Do you have a job at the moment? Or study? Is there anything you do on a daily basis which brings you a sense of purpose?
  8. Is there any possibility of you becoming a personal fitness coach? I'm pretty sure the qualification only takes a couple of months and isn't too expensive, after which you could work in most gyms. Health and fitness is a growing niche. As I understand you're currently spending in order to do these hobbies. With coaching you could get paid to do them.
  9. I'm moving to a new city next year where I don't know anyone. I've realised that healthy friendships are important to me for my psychological well-being. The last few years I've really focused on self-help and career, and I've lost a lot of friends because of that. I've also had a girlfriend which made me less inclined to go socialise because I'm quite introverted. I find myself feeling lonely frequently because I don't have close friends in my current city that I hang out with. I tend to discuss problems only with my gf, which creates a bit of an unhealthy dynamic. If you: a) were moving to a new city next year where you knew no-one, and b) wanted to make a group of close friends who you would feel comfortable going to with issues/things to dicuss/get a second opinion on/ hang out etc. (as opposed to acquaintances who you know, but would not talk about deep stuff with) what would be some thing that you would do?
  10. That's like saying if you make the flower beds in your medieval village look nice it will stop a horde of combat-advanced barbarians from burning every single building, raping and killing every single woman and child and gutting every single man in the village. There are viruses and bacteria that can do as they please with the human body. You will have no natural defence. They will rape and kill every cell in your body until you are a melted liquid mess on the ground (figuratively speaking). A human without access to modern medicine is like the US without its military and combat technology.
  11. In order for vaccines to work efficiently, immune promoting substances called adjuvants are added. One such adjuvant is aluminium and is added in tiny doses. The reason for adding adjuvants is to stimulate the innate immune system. This results in a better long term response in the adaptive immune system. They inflame and irritate the injection site and are painful - but that is a sign that the vaccine will work better not that the vaccine companies are trying to kill you lol. Think of it like this. Your immune system is a bunch of militia in a town. vaccines are like training dummies - help to train the militia but wont actually hurt the town. With adjuvants, the dummies are still harmless, but now yell insults at the soldiers like "your mom's a fat whore!" which angers the soldiers more and gets them riled up. Next time when an actual virus attacks the soldiers will remember the insults from the dummies which will send them into a fighting rage and they will be more effective at killing off the real virus. TL;DR - adjuvants (like aluminium) make vaccines much more effective. They are there for a reason. To properly understand the pros and cons of vaccines you need at least a second -year university education in immunology. I'm sorry but most anti-vaxxers have no idea what they're talking about. The posts in this thread are full of conjecture, conflating causation with correlation, and just not understanding how basic science works. Yes science has its problems but most anti vaxxers are not scientifically literate, they have not transcended the limits of science and looked back on it - they've not understood vaccines and instead made a strawman to attack. I'm not saying vaccines are 100% risk free but I'm cautioning you to read and learn in detail about what vaccines do. DO NOT take a stand FOR OR AGAINST vaccines based on mob mentality. Take it upon yourself to learn about them from both anti-vax and scientific sources (this is made harder by the fact that not every scientific study is equal in the quality of its design). IN GENERAL, anti-vaxxers make huge leaps in rationalising their position and generally have no idea what they're talking about. The reason for this is that there are many nuances in traps in science which only start becoming apparent after at least a university level education in a scientific field, which most anti-vaxxers don't have. For transparency I am speaking from a position of a bachelors degree in biochemistry (with added education in immunology, genetics, and plant biology) and being half way through med school. Take from that what you will, you can even say I'm biased, but just take the time to make a thorough inquiry before you make a stance. Not pointing fingers, but anyone saying that you can just abandon these things by turning to nature and "natural" remedies is speaking from such arrogance and can only say this because they are standing on the shoulders of the giants enabled modern medicine. Sure it's not perfect but just take a look at history and how close we have been to being wiped out by infectious diseases. The only reason anti-vaxxers don't get ill is because of herd immunity. And by not getting immunised they are putting people who can't get immunised in a dire situation.
  12. The major risk of vaccine is having an allergic reaction to one. And that will happen to 1/10,000. Any other adverse side effect like chronic fatigue has incredibly low chances of happening. Don't take vaccination for granted, this tool is one of the reasons you're able to live without the fear of getting polio or measles or a number of other crippling and paralysing illnesses. My town in New Zealand is currently going through a measles outbreak which is spreading through the metropolitan areas because we don't have 100% vaccination coverage here. https://www.health.govt.nz/your-health/conditions-and-treatments/diseases-and-illnesses/measles/2019-measles-outbreak-information Yes there can be some catastrophic reactions to vaccines in 1 in a 100 million people. But ending that would be at the detriment of the rest of society - especially those who cannot get vaccinated such as those with immune suppression or very young children.
  13. Talk with your doctor. There are many possible reasons for this and a doctor will be in the best position to diagnose the issue.
  14. Be careful. I never said people don't quit. What I said is that a nicotine addiction is for life. Even people who quit and never go back still get cravings for nicotine. In my experience with talking with past smokers, they say that even though they stopped smoking 10 years ago they still wake up craving a cigarette. I'm not saying that it's impossible to stop cravings, I'm just saying that it is not the norm.
  15. I will give you my personal opinion of what I wish I had done/done more of in my late teens (I'm 23 btw). - learn to accept yourself as you are and learn to trust yourself. Avoid allowing the comparison to other people sway your life purpose. - learn about how to do basic adult skills: > personal finance > reading and signing lease agreements for when you go flatting/live on your own > cooking for yourself, buying groceries etc. > dealing with banks, power companies, water companies, internet companies etc. > dealing with lawyers, doctors, accountants, government agencies etc. > dealing with a boss and making money - basically, learning how to go from dependence on your parents to total and complete independence There are a lot of admin things our parents do behind the scenes that we take totally for granted (bless them) and I see a lot of young people can't handle very basic adult things. If you spend a good few years moving to independence, it will serve you well for the rest of your life. Try some good old fashioned self-help before you touch psychedelics (Check out the Actualized.org textbook for this) Also, don't drink too much and don't get into bad habits like smoking weed every day. Alcohol and weed I have personally seen destroy young people's future. Also don't ever smoke nicotine (e-cigs or regular cigarettes), not even socially. A nicotine addiction is for life. It never leaves you and will seriously hinder your progress, just don't touch it. Again, this is just my opinion. It sounded very paternalistic and like basic stuff, but it's getting the basics right that will set you up for life.
