I'm concerned about this debate.

5 posts in this topic

Me and my friend have deep conversations about enlightenment. And seems to be right in this case but I feel that I have done alot more consciousness work than him and he just smokes weed and has done lots of mdma before.

We are both 19. And I have gone to a vipassana retreat for 10 days. I gained a few insights but it's interesting to hear from other perspectives.im just a bit confused about this

I would just focus on doing the work and not spending time worrying over debating this. Its fun to talk about with friends but don't let it distract you from doing the work. The people I know who have the deepest awakening don't really talk to much about it unless prodded.

I'm not fully clear on this myself, but I think there being many, different sized infinities applies here. Some thing like the ego is infinite because there are always more nuances and more to zoom in, but it is finite in that it doesn't encompass everything.

In mathematics there are smaller and bigger infinities as well. 

Between the number 1 and 2 there are infinite possibilities. An “absolute infinity” exists there. There are also an infinite numbers between 1 and 3.

All possibilities between the number 1 and 2 though start with 1. Eg 1.1, 1.5277272 and so on.

So they follow some laws. You can’t have elephants as a possibility within that infinity for example.

Same with our world. Our life and so on.

@Arhattobe That would be so funny. 1; 1,1 ; 1,565785668; 1,elephant ; ... xD . Would have loved math more this way, so I could ask the teacher: where's the elephant in the infinite.
