  1. The Concept of Phenomenon

    These are illuminated and made manifest in the realm of the "noumenon" -- only accessible via the soul. The noumenon is not only what lies behind all phenomena of waking consciousness it also, according to Kant, demarcates the limit of scientific knowledge. The noumenon is otherwise known as the thing-in-itself i.e. reality!
  2. The Concept of Phenomenon

    Dr Yan Xin says images of meditation ought to be regarded as a foundational aspect of reality!

    So there's real virtual reality of quantum biology, there's also the simulated paralleling of reality by the techno-virtual matrix and there's people going for it with Platonism still too i.e. the rational man of the sciences etc. lol. Of course only one world is the real world and if you look around you now the world you think you're in and the things produced in your world are actually fabricated holographic shadowy aspects of the real real, 4 real!

    Okay, well I want to listen to audiobooks and meditate tomorrow so I'll leave this comment here for now. First order of the simulacrum is a good representation of reality/forms/ideas by something like the bible during the time of the invention of the print-press. So the bible can be copied by the press and what it represents is faithful to the original cause. Second order of the simulacrum is essential machinic aura stealing of representation i.e. a machine reproducing copies of the eiffel tower during the industrial revolution. McLuhan's extension of the body's muscles. 3rd order of the simulacrum is something like the photograph where machines produce images without representation to any given form. 4th stage full simulated society is unprincipled production of reality by the machine i.e, the TV whose images, signs and symbols bare no relation to Platonic objectivities -- Hyperreality overcoding and preceding all previous ideas about reality.

    Right. I can't keep posting here, that's why I tried to delete this thread. It wastes my time and energy.

    Okay I clicked on and found this quote - "A formless void meditates on exponential space time events" Pretty sure that's wrong because exponentials are Platonic. You'd have to ask drew about that because I;m not really into that stuff. Reminds me, I did see a funny video the other day concerning both Jean Baudrillard and Chopra - lol

    But I'm not new age, new age is particular to the 60s and 70s of north western european culture. In philosophy we call this period "4th stage simulacrum as full simulation" or Heidegger's total forgetting of Being which he talks about in his lecture/essay The Question Concerning Technology etc. What I'm talking about is always true. That's why I'm willing to bet my house on my abilities. I can back up my philosophy with actual miracles just like the saints and shaman can too!

    In Platonic philosophy i.e. western mathematics, the divine creates the forms or the original ideas, then the demiurge creates the world as a copy of the ideas and then Plato says the poets are not allowed in to his republic because their art is too far removed from the world of the original ideas i.e. copies of a copy of an original. So I paint a picture of a tree and that's a copy of a tree which itself is a copy of an original idea and that's not allowed because only mathematics is allowed to condition nature in western thinking. So that's why swivel-eyed geeks love mathematics so much and believe its the language of the cosmos. The word "poet" comes from the word poiesis - Martin Heidegger refers to it as a 'bringing-forth' (physis as emergence), using this term in its widest sense. He explained poiesis as the blooming of the blossom, the coming-out of a butterfly from a cocoon, the plummeting of a waterfall when the snow begins to melt. The last two analogies underline Heidegger's example of a threshold occasion: a moment of ecstasis when something moves away from its standing as one thing to become another. So poetry really means nature's ecstatic self-creation, a coming to presence from herself. Anyway, you can definitely put it all together again with Heidegger's philosophy. Just have to do the meditation and learn a bit history and some of the lost ways prior to Plato.

    Everything begins, and ends, at the San trance dance with drew's alchemical music "theory" as far as I'm concerned. That's the only way to make real sense of things! So we can say drew has a completed, working and unified theory of everything, I think!

    Plato at it again lol
  11. Fake "Bob Dobbs"

    Because it can only be realised in "first nature," in a pre-civilisation state of awareness before solar settlements, as cosmic embodiment prior to technological extensions mutating social formations like cancerous outgrowths upon earth.
