Buddha-mind by Timothy on June 15th, 2009, 9:22 pm
"The world of thinking is that of our ordinary dualistic mind.
The world of pure consciousness or awareness is that of buddha-mind.
Phenomena in the world of thinking are constantly being named or labeled by our minds. The world of awareness does not label or name, it only reflects. The world of pure consciousness thus includes the opposites in the world of thinking." - Shunryu Suzuki

Why is relativity so hard to learn?[10X] by BurtJordaan on May 5th, 2017, 12:13 am
This is a "whiteboard dump" for a post following on part [9] of a Philosophy of Science thread with the above name. I have thought to move things deemed too technical here for reference (As sort of Appendices).

As Mitchell has indicated above, there is a slight possibility that a future super-dooper technology could perhaps bring Alice back home with the amount of fuel that she has left. As we also discussed, if you have the technology, a higher acceleration would be better, so let us look at a one earth gravity (1g) setting ...

Things You Learn About Yourself by weakmagneto on March 13th, 2012, 1:29 pm
Sometimes, in life, you are challenged. You will never know what you would do in a particular situation until it happens. You discover many things about yourself and your true character may be revealed, good or bad.

One such event happened to me. A group of us ladies (4), along with my daughter, who was in her late teens, were going to an isolated graveyard located in the wilderness to visit the graves of our loved ones who had passed long, long ago.

We had to walk a ways in the bush to get to the graveyard. As we got there, I had the feeling we were being watched. Just as I caught sight of the family graves, I seen a bear, standing on its hindlegs, staring at us. The bear had no fear. It was a young bear, probably a few years old, almost full-grown.

I immediately alerted the others of the bear. I calmly told them to walk back toward where we had parked the boat. I kept my eye on the bear, it walked parallel to us, it was observing us. I observed it, I was prepared to fight...

O, seeker of peace,
O, seeker of joy,
Where find you these treasures?
In self, or in riches?

Looking, but not seeing.
Listening, but not hearing.
Life without living, free yet bound,
Decisive yet uncertain.
Bound by illusion, immersed in ones own thoughts;
rushing here and there, yet going nowhere fast.

Be silent; you will hear.
Be still; you will see.
Speaking, yet unheard, sits the sparrow in the oak.
Silent and unseen, rooted flower in the grass.
Why do you hurry? Why do you rush?
Where do you go?

O, Seeker of Light;
In darkness you do search, but in light will you find.
O, Seeker of Life;
In death you do seek, but in life will you find.

You who walk through air,
You who walk through water;
What see you? This and that, and that and this?
Here and there, and there and here?
Many are the faces of One;
this IS that, and that IS this.
All is one, and one is all,
yet divided and apart see you all things.

Shapes and forms, shifting and changing,
but illusions are these: to...
