Rupert Spira on Sam Harris Podcast

298 posts in this topic

Harris also didn't seem to understand Spira when he said "there was no discontinuity of consciousness" during his operation. Harris thought there must be such a thing because the surgeons were at work.

He didn't grasp that from the POV of consciousness, there are no discontinuities, ever.

Just 4 discussing

If consciousness would come from the brain, or whatever... How could in theory a discontinued experience be possible prom POV of the first person...

So Ruperts argument that for him there in no discontinuity in consciousness while being in operation, is no valid argument because by definition you cant experience that even when that is present... You cant experience from a first person POV consciously an unconscious experience... And that does not mean that there is no discontinuity, just that you cant experience it from your POV

That is a believe you have, it is metaphysics.  Yes it was a discontinuity of consciousness because Rupert Spira wasn´t consciousness during surgey, as simple as that.

Lol

You don't get it.

YOU are all there is. There is no discontinuity in Spira's consciousness because YOU are conscious!

For fuck's sake. Your conscious is Absolute and there is no other.

You guys are arguing pure delusion. All your arguments are wrong. They are not even within the same plane as Truth.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

@Leo Gura Who's consciousness? 

When you say, 'YOU' are all there is, who are you talking to?' Yourself? 

When you say 'Sam Harris is locked into his paradigm', who are you talking about?' Yourself? The appearance of Sam Harris? 

It's a little strange to claim, 'YOU are all there is, but there is also Sam Harris.'

It’s called making a concession to duality in order to have a conversation, Rupert does it all the time and it’s the only way to communicate.

Imagine how messy and impossible to understand everything would be if one couldn’t make distinctions in order to address any topic, not possible. No one’s here, nothing is happening, so nothing matters. We’d have to remain silent.

Yes, which is Sam's point. For this conversation (or any conversation) to matter, is to be 'locked into the materialist paradigm'.

It's called going full circle - from Relative (self) --> Absolute ( Self) --> Relative (self integrated into Self). So you can move between the Absolute and the Relative with ease and with existential understanding of the (seemingly separate) wave being one and same as the ocean/water.

@Natasha 'you are not controlling the storm, and you are not lost in it, you ARE the storm' - Sam Harris. 

Does this sound like Harris doesn't grasp the concept of 'oneness'?

What is a Harris? One thing is intellectually grasping, another thing is real felt understanding, love & beauty. In duality, Rupert has both intellectual and emotional embodiment of the understanding of our nature, which SH seems to lack.

He could be just parroting someone else or some quote. From what Ive heard from him, he still lacks in existential understanding of reality.
