Pantheism is the new paganism. Or should I say neopaganism.

Non-duality sounds so much more exciting with fast loud Muzak and cool graphics. My granddad explained this when I was a wee tot.
I will break it down for ya
We are all one and one for all. Love everyone and everything because it's just an extention of you. Desire is a seed of Progress and progress is inevitable. All that is dark and painful is your interpretation just as all that is good and pleasurable.
Time is eternal and when you look at the long arc of time as we know it everything is a OK.
Enjoy the ride that is your life in the vehicle that is your body and know that you are the universe there is much love for you. Where you come from and where you will dissolve back to.
Namaste

Uh oh, someone has been reading Daniel Dennet and Susan Blackmore!

All joking aside, there is DEFINITELY problems with the Cartesian Theater model of consciousness, but I'm not able to swallow the Grand Illusion model quite yet; I see it as a pseudo-mix of science and Buddhism.


And Nickel2, I'm pretty sure that Blackmore used that as an example in a discussion once, which the TPV is excellent literature, but it should be left as such; literature, not philosophy.

Check out the Hitch-hikers guide, (Douglas Adams), look for Total Perspective Vortex.
Quote: The T.P.V. is a device built as a practical application of the theory of atomic interactivity, the idea is that if every atom of the universe is affected by every other atom of the universe, it is theoretically possible to extrapolate a model of the entire universe using a single piece of matter as a starting point. This Guy is paraphrasing Douglas Adams

I just puked my brain out inside the toilet because of a terrible case of gastro and now a guy on a video tells me that i'm not myself but someone else... i'm all like "cool, could you puke for me just for a few hours?"

That's an interesting way to put it. If we zoom out on us as humans we'd look like the small living organisms we see as viruses.
We are incredibly small really.
