Great subject. Even though I am not as knowledgeable/experienced as many of you on this subject it seems, I still find it very compelling/interesting to think about.Postmaster said:
Maybe this is what the whole of nature is powered on. Maybe the more you understand of your dimise on a more consious level the greater you achive but at the same time its a greater burden to carry the more you understand it.
I wonder if anyone else has grasped this idea.
Namaste Postmaster,Postmaster said:Thank you Vajradhara, it sounds very interesting. To me that story reminds me of childhood, although I've grown to be larger, have greater ability and greater thoughts however so different I am, I'm still my original self in there.
Namaste Postmaster,Postmaster said:Thank you Vajradhara, I believe this is where our thinking splits You see I personally believe that I have a purest and most fundamental part of my existence which many go about to call a soul and know matter what, that's the only part of me that counts the most for which ever journey, appearance or situation I'm in. It would be a shame to rename a river every time you enter it.
He is also credited with the first ideas about the Logos or "Divine Word" that became such a central part of Neo-Platonism and Christianity centuries later.Vajradhara said:Namaste Postmaster,
not rename... re-experience. the river is constantly undergoing change.. by despoiting sediment and taking in new sediment et al.
heck.. this should be right up your alley, it's a Greek expression
Heraclitus of Ephesus (Greek Ηρακλειτος Herakleitos) (about 535 - 475 BC), known as 'The Obscure,' was a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher. He disagreed with Thales, Anaximander, and Pythagoras about the nature of the ultimate substance and claimed instead that everything is derived from the Greek classical element fire, rather than from air, water, or earth. This led to the belief that change is real, and stability illusory. For Heraclitus everything is "in flux", as exemplified in his famous aphorism "Panta Rhei":Παντα ρει και ουδεν μενειHe is famous for saying: "No man can cross the same river twice, because neither the man nor the river are the same."
Everything flows, nothing stands still
gravity is a theory as well... but we're fairly confident concerning it... well.. except at the quantum level... but... that's what Drs. Hawking and Turok are forPostmaster said:Maybe one of the worlds first false prophets
I wonder how famous he became from his originality and suckers
Many present day scientists believe they have even come across the most fundamental substance of every part of the universe and life, known as the string theory, they claim everything is made out of nothing more but vibrating strings and they even vibrate on frequencies that our dimension can't grasp.. It is a theory but it's certainly causing a stir in the science world. http://superstringtheory.com/
I totally agree with you on that one PM. I avoid the word soul. I would call it, as Geshe Kelsang Gyatso does, the Subtle Mind.Postmaster said:I personally believe that I have a purest and most fundamental part of my existence which many go about to call a soul and know matter what, that's the only part of me that counts the most for which ever journey, appearance or situation I'm in.
