dmt, you're welcome!

I just watched it on an iPad with my daughter. She really dug it. The soundtrack is great, a very cool climbing vid of a honed athlete going all out hundreds of feet in the air.

"I did it!" So cool.

MH2. Put down that beer bong. Go to the corner. Sit yourself down. Keep your back straight. Soft focus, but eyes open, gaze downward at a 45 angle or whatever is comfortable. Watch your breath and ignore whatever comes up, moving neither to nor away from any thought, feeling (however fuzzy), insight, horror, or memory. Report back in five years, when you have something to say.

And, MH2, remember that scientific observation shows long-term meditators have thicker frontal cortexes than non-meditators!!

The only valid reason for hating Christianity - or anyone else's religion for that matter - is bigotry. Plain and simple bigotry.

No, Chaz, there's another reason - they can't figure out how to fly their own kite.

If you can't go fly a kite, you can always take a hike. There's something here for everybody.

Actually, I'd call that an invalid reason.

So what you are saying is that the Jews had no valid reason to hate Christianity, the "official" religion of Nazi Germany, that was perverted into having as it's goal the eradication of all Jews, everywhere?

You are saying that it is not valid to hate a group that organizes for the purpose of attacking and persecuting you, because you don't belong to that group?

but by scientific I would mean

(1) But you would acknowledge "scientific" as used by OTHERs might mean something different to them - that being science-based or science-informed?

you have to delay trying to objectify reality

(2) But you would acknowledge that OTHERS could find it useful to objectify, describe, or model pieces of the whole? - indeed just as science as a field has more or less done over the last couple centuries in particular.

Once you have spent your time with the whole, undivided, THEN we can start trying to objectify what it all comes down to.

(3) But you would acknowledge that there are other valid approaches to objectifying, modeling or describing how the world works? and that OTHERS might find piecemeal approaches useful or suitable to their purposes? - much as maps or topos can be drawn up in piecemeal local fashion and in this piecemeal form can be useful.

.....

What I object to is an approach that insists that though objectifying parts we can grasp what is real for the whole.

(4) But science and scientists (amateur or professional) don't "insist" on this. You disagree? As you know, what is real (let alone the fullness of it) is perceived through human perception. Thus at best it is a representation of the real, for better or worse though we hope for the better.

Objectifying parts and integrating them into wholes is a useful thing to do in a great many cases, so the fact remains, I'm still unclear as to the conflict, or conflicts, if any.


Boy the internet is a hopping hot mess today!

What is the purpose of a "practice of living" anyhow?

a) a religious practice of living?
b) a scientific practice of living?
