'Observation' Chapter


Everything has as part of its existence both its substance (essence) and its opposite. When thinking of my own being, I must also reflect on my non being. In that you can see the essence.

Thus, how one can be who they are and the world at the same time.

What is consciousness or awareness that it can die? And if there is no reality without observation then why isn’t reality all patchy? Maybe there is no absence of observation. We can observe without seeing.

Direction and Thought

Now here is something interesting. Some people might think of total awareness and ask what about direction? What about purpose? Lots of people stumble over things like the law of attraction because in the popular material something is missing. Can’t… Seek More

Infinite and Individual

When everyone is infinite, then who is different? Why does difference even matter? Do you believe you are limited? I am not criticising individuality. I am not deriding the core that allows the infinite to differentiate. When I say namaste… Seek More

Place of Humanity

The topic is an issue that comes up a lot, but is rarely given any formal answer for. Roughly, I will address the place of humanity in the universe. It can be argued that in order for man to arise… Seek More

Brain, Mind and Experience

Can we say that ‘mind’ is just another word for ‘brain‘? I would debate that myself. I would say mind would be more akin to the morphogenetic field, and the body including the brain more of a mechanism and memory… Seek More

Attention and Intention

When you share an experience in any way, there is a need to reproduce the picture or data as presented by another. How is that possible without principles governing thought? How is it we experience anything to share with another,… Seek More
