Thanks for another thoughtful comment, greenpeace. I?ve enjoyed the dialogue. I generally stick to original sources, but Bergson is one whose original work I?ve never read (much of). I have a couple books of his sitting on my Kindle, but haven?t gotten around to them. This convo is getting him back onto my to-read list. I think you might like him quite a bit. He was a philosophy star for a minute in the early 20th century, but then quickly fell out of fashion as he rose to prominence about the same time as Einstein?s general relativity took center-stage. He famously debated Einstein about whether time or space is primary, with (of course) Einstein arguing for space. ?The world? agreed with Einstein and Bergson was basically forgotten. But he has made a comeback, and obviously with his emphasis on time, he fits nicely with process philosophy and theology. He also fits kind of perfectly with your earlier comments about ?wave mechanics? and the ?hologram model.? Some years ago, I read a book by a guy named Stephen Robbins called ?Time and Memory: A primer on the scientific mysticism of consciousness? in which he used Bergson?s conception of consciousness to posit a combination of those ideas. Basically, he asserts that Bergson thought of the brain as what we might now call a ?modulated reconstructive wave? passing through a holographic field, in terms of how we perceive and construct our experience of reality. You might find Bergson (and Robbins) very pertinent to your approach. Again, I haven?t read Bergson and obviously he wrote long before the hologram was a glint in anyone?s eye, so I don?t know how directly his language (or its translation into English) conforms to the framework in which Robbins presents his views.
So infuriating. I know the difference between a butt pat and a violent assault.
As I said quite clearly, it is not harassment.
it's objective. No matter what universe it only pops into existence once regardless of any opinion on any things part.
These are your claims, the burden of proof is on you. However this doesn't change the fact that spread of Islam, a violent totalitarian ideology, is a big issue nowadays.
Lol, DNA points to a creator? Wow...stretches of imagination. You will see God anywhere you look... talk about being invested in a theory.
Was at a KISS concert back in 1976. I was peeing in the men's bathroom. Really really really drunk girl came in, tired of waiting for the line at the women's bathroom. She walked over to one of the urinals, hiked up her skirt, no underwear, straddled the urinal - backwards - and let fly. Did I mention that she was really drunk?
Still not answering. So you don't want to lie so you deflect. But it's ok to let little children go hungry because you disapprove of their parents.... You are truly a child of Christ Vic. What was that I was saying about my moral superiority?
What part is silly? Was Abraham a Christian? Abraham saw G-D in human form! So does that make him a Christian? Hugs
So much semantics and intellectualising.I see no-one calling this spade what it is:EVIL,evil which goes way,way back.And right to the top.Before I get accused of being anti-RCC,for the record:nearly half a century ago I attended a Roman Catholic primary school(then run by only the Church)My experiences there left me with a life-long deep reverence for G-d.However,I also experienced some things which confused me,some things decidedly un-holy,even un-G-dly.Sadly,today sections of "The Holy Roman Catholic Church" are displayed as centres of depravity and debauchery.I believe history clearly shows the genesis of the evil that has invaded the body of the Church.It is time for the mother-of-all exorcisms,to rid the Church of all evil and its agents.This may potentially culminate in the implosion of the RCC,even the Vatican itself?
Need moar coffee. Keeping momentum.
It should just be implied.
Sure you did Rob, sure you did.
Cons is just an abbreviation like Libs.
Very well. Were going to have to disagree.
Seriously?? Who continually gets labeled as demented and stupid??
Vote for the liars! Because they like the same sports team as me!
The last hotel that I stayed at with a bidet, had two bidet towels on a ring next to it. What's the protocol/etiquette? Is it like a hand towel next to the sink to dry your hands, or do I toss it in the tub when done and suffer the
Get ?em while you can. Europe is looking into banning the trusty plasti straw.
are you implying my wife is large XD
I think it's interesting, too...! Because it lets me see "all in God" and "God in all", which to me is an aesthetically and spiritually pleasing view...
Al Gore has to approve it.
