Freedom of thought, the questioning of presented truths, a refusal to accept the teachings of the churches in terms of past theology-is characteristic of creative spiritual thinking I call the Dahli Lama a dirty hippie! Ghandi-gi the "gi" means father or master, in Hindi, if I remember correctly , was a dirty hippie!
I could see the wisdom and intelligence there, but If I am right, then you, and other "hippies" that is a catch-all term for me to label anyone who embraces magical thinking, but also a term of endearment! To me, it seems fruitless and pointless to chase ghosts when there are studies that can actually inspire someone to build a better bridge or road, or a damn rechargable battery that doesn't lose its ability to hold a charge after a year Thank you Randy-what you just wrote means a lot to me.
One of the reasons for my persistence on this forum was curiously enough your 'grumpiness' and a great respect for your 'passion' for Maths and Science. One might suggest that this calls for greater integration within the individual and is reflected by a mind and heart working in tandem. Knowledge is akin to fire -misuse brings us to the brink of destruction. The Mystery Schools of the past prepared those aspiring to such knowledge through the initiatory process.
In the life of the individual and collectively the principle of conflict is continually at work and we are faced with one crisis after another. Points of crisis when surmounted bring about a fundamental re-orientation of ones life around core beliefs and principles. At the root of humanity's problems lies the 'great heresy of separation'. In seeking a common ground through respect and a mutual reciprocity bridges can be constructed.
This seems to me to indicate a way forward and holds the key to to what Barbera Marx Hubbard calls Evolutionary Synthesis.
But imagine whatever science you will; follow the magnificent sweep of its deductions. Veiling wisdom in words, particularly another man's words, often defeats the purpose. Wisdom is an understanding, an insight, the linking of cause and effect while appreciating the underlying mechanic. Wisdom depends on a frame of reference, on pieces of info, relatively unrelated tidbits of know-how that distil into a package which is fully understood.
This is wisdom. As such, wisdom can be applied, because the mechanic is clear and understood. By shrouding the words in.. The links a person misses in his frame of reference, the links that are essential to understanding key principle and the mechanic itself, must always be made painstakingly clear in words. Lots of words. You can translate knowledge easily, but wisdom as you described is more than the sum of it's parts.
If your wish is to convey wisdom, enlighten your fellow man, my suggestion would be to rely on people not understanding you, rather than expect them to piece together the same information and perspective from poetic quotes and non-sequitors. Listen, I don't agree with you, but I like you. You are intelligent and sincere. Misguided, I think, LOL! And you keep quoting to me! You reminded me of Bucky Fuller so I pulled out my leather bound, first editions of the 27 volume set of his great, insane work, "Everything I Know". And have started reading it for the sixth time!
Yes- wisdom is revealed in simply living the life Yes DK perhaps I do quote a 'lot of stuff' Wisdom speaks directly to the heart-it does not require to be displayed.
Sometimes it does feel to me that we are on the way out as a species but then the spiritual element in me reminds me that we are so very small beneath the sky. I end with another quote.. It's people who try to live "pain-free" that turn out to be the most empty-headed. And, I have all of Bucky Fuller's works, he was a great genius.
I agree with him that we are on our way out as a species I notice you quote a lot of stuff. Ironically, you're citing knowledge, rather than displaying wisdom.

That is fun. But I would add, "It is the province of the self-indulgent to spout drivel, it is the hard work of hard working people that builds nations and feeds folks D-K wrote, and it is extremely important for everyone to read and re-read many times until it sinks in:. Contributions of Astrology and other pseudo-sciences pale in comparison to what actual science contributes to the progression of the modern human collective. If anything, we should be focussing more attention towards scientific understanding and reorganize moral and ethical systems so that science is no longer hindered by irrationality A magnificent crystalization of my thoughts and ideas which counter Sophia's and other irrationalists.
Read that quote and then read it again. And think about it. Science, engineering, and accompanying mathmatics provide real, quantifiable benefits to our society and species. Let us not waste it by turning back on old habits from 30 to thousand years ago. Be better than your ape-brain! They have been lieing all through the 20th century, to save their wporthless occupations. Worse is that they have taught our children this dogma, similarly like the plagerism called christianity.
However, that is not the sense in which the word nothing is being used. To make this measurement, Wilson and Penzias had to account for interference from other sources of radiation. Except for giving a whole new dimension to stupidity I think most religious extremists have malfunctioning messenger particles! The ten sefirot are configurations of Divine powers within the Godhead, containing the principles whereby God manifests Himself to us, and constituting the vehicle through which God interacts with the universe. I thought after viewing the doc - first dark matter almost thought I was dealing with that , then dark energy wtf , now I'm introduced to dark flow?
Wallace Thornhill is a true genius, unlike Einstein, and the circus of mathematicians that followed him. Check out thunderbolts of the gods. Cosmology in crisis. The great American electrician is reported by Mr. Dreams differ. An ancient injunction states 'as above, so below Carl Sagan commented 'If out lives are controlled by a set of traffic signals in the sky why try to change anything'..
Another ancient injunction states 'Man first know thyself, then thou shalt know the Universe. If through our misuse of knowledge and greed we have succeeded in bringing the planet toward the edge of an abyss-then clearly it is time for change and we can't change anything without understanding how to wield and control the forces of our 'personality'.
Sadly these impulses reflect our insecurity-fear-and greed-yes as Randy stated 'money talks'. The divine Law of Vibration states that nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates. The lower the vibration, the slower the vibration; the higher the vibration the faster the vibration. Max Planck, PhD One might consider man as an atom or unit of intelligence whose constitution is made up of atoms of differing qualities vibrating at different frequencies. This is the principle of resonance. When a piano is tuned, a tuning fork is struck, and then brought close to the piano string that carries that same musical tone.
The string then raises its vibration automatically and attunes itself to the same rate at which the fork is vibrating.. My Irish Brother! Good to see your still kicking around the thoughts. Long time no post.
Good to see you around here , my friend. You should come get on the Expelled or the Wormhole docs and use your brain as usual. Sophia: Rather than trying to save room to incorporate that which we don't understand, we should be focussing our energy towards physical discovery.
Philosophy has benefits, surely, but mathemathically mapping, engineering, testing and making sense of the observable is far more productive. We can't quantify the knowledge we have in respects to the knowledge we can potentially attain, Science is providing answers to matters of direct importance and influence. If anything, we should be focussing more attention towards scientific understanding and reorganize moral and ethical systems so that science is no longer hindered by irrationality.
Individually, Astrology and other psuedo-sciences might calm a mind or provide a comforting delusion, but large scale and long term these ponderings are rendered useless. Thank you, sir.
Just peeking in, taking some downtime from my busy schedule, to crush some dreams and stomp on those adolescent fantasies that are destroying my country, LOL! Let me put this out to the room. It applies to what we are discussing, but really, all aspects of our lives. I'm sorry to sound mercenary or cynical, but money IS everything.
Anyone who says, "money isn't everything", is probably trying to take it from you, or has none themselves. Was it Paine or Hamilton that said, "There can be no freedom without economic freedom I could look it up, but I am in a bit of a hurry Poor people have no choices. The poor have few options. In the USA especially, money is health, security, freedom of choice, and yes, breeding options Securing our genetics and satisfying evolution.
So, my point is, esoterica is cute and fun, but if you can't BANK it, don't thank it. Ignore things that don't create wealth and lift up the economy of our flailing country, USA. Education, sciences, maths, engineering Is it hard? Life is a struggle and then you die. That's how it works.
That's a good thing! The HARD is what makes it great! Be strong, grown-up men and women. Put the things of childhood behind you and work to build things, physical things, or the ideas that create them. I'm no expert but as I understand it astrology statements use something called a Barnum effect. These are vague statements that can relate to anybody, but the reader will perceive this as being specifically true for them. Hi Randy- Perhaps I have not studied and investigated the subject of astrology in the way that you appear to have done-yet I cannot simply dismiss this as 'nonsense'.
As you say we need science, intellect, maths and engineering but it is not ALL we need. It seems to me a question of 'approach' -one might well ask what is knowledge-and why are some aspects of knowledge esoteric and other aspects exoteric The Ageless Wisdom teaches that The over development of the lower or concrete mind can lead one to identify solely with information which is concerned with densest objectivity.
It might be suggested that perhaps one of the goals of the 'evolutionary impulse' is to lift the collective consciousness of the race to a level whereby little by little the intuition or transcendental mind will eventually supersede the lower or concrete mind. The Mysteries are approached through the initiatory process-which involves the expansion of consciousness from one state to another, each state enlarges the vista.
