Some observations on realization and being a guru.
There are innumerable proofs that the material world is a mirage of the mind. Hydra regeneration from complete dissociation into individual cells is one.
The process of living boils down to data processing. To render the mirage of physicality, symbolic processing fabricates physical correlates. Genetics is just the beginning.
The distinction between what the eye sees and what the mind perceives is a hoary philosophical debate. Do we infer a 3D world from the 2D snapshots our eyes take, as Enlightenment philosophers John Locke and David Hume posited, or is the 3D “objective” world before us, as more contemporary psychologists Hermann von Helmholtz and James J. Gibson presumed?
We live in a world of ideas. An idea becomes communicable by being encapsulated into a word.
Objects in space exist but are not real. Conversely, time does not exist but is real.
Actuality not reality. Nature is a mirage of the mind. Here’s why.
The idea of God as a Supreme Being was conceived in men’s minds by the 7th century before the common era.
Modern science is full of fictions. Widely accepted theories are bogus. The problem begins with a false construct of reality.
Freedom has a price. Does freedom have value?
Whereas our desires propel us through life, unintended consequences more profoundly shape the world in which we live.
Existence is the eternal entertainment platform of Ĉonsciousness. Existence entirely comprises a dynamic flow of symbols.
Consciousness is the facility for awareness: the ability to be aware and perceive. There are nominally 7 states of consciousness. In the waking state, there are 4 levels of consciousness.
Enlightenment is where you want to be. Here’s how to get there.
Physicists universally agree that existence emergently appears from the quantum level up. Now, quantum physicists have shown that objectivity is an illusion, thereby experimentally proving showtivity, an aspect of Ishi Nobu’s teachings.
The mind is a pattern processor. The mental ability to discriminate is based upon contrast. As such, a reference pattern affords finer acuity.
18th-century Scottish social philosopher and political economist Adam Smith well stated that “the theory that can absorb the greatest number of facts is the one that must rule all observation.” That theory is energyism.
Remembrance is the root of mental illness.
As American president, Donald Trump has irrefutably had a detrimental effect on all fabrics influenced by him: economic, political, diplomatic, military, environmental, societal. Yet this pathological liar is still believed by a loyal following. This extreme example demonstrates a more pervasive point.
Life’s intellectual quest is for comprehension, which is a purchase of self-deception when bought; for understanding is always circumscribed within a context that may be functionally adequate but is also always piecemeal.
In his books, Ishi Nobu conveys a system of knowledge: a consilience of all that humanity has garnered about Nature and the nature of reality. That system upends the philosophic matterism that has the scientific community in thrall. It also dispels the dogma that religions faithfully cling to.
The mind is a symbolic processor, incessantly shuffling concepts. All that we experience or know are nothing more than the play of concepts.
Physicists have long produced models that required extra dimensions. Yet studious denial has been the norm. The irony of physics is that the theories most likely to resemble reality are those for which existence proof is lacking.
