  1. [DDJ Meaning] Chapter 42

    "two gives birth to three" I think this is best portrayed by the vesica pisces the area where opposites find common ground and creation takes place; and maybe the opposite is the masonic checkerboard,where the opposites never find common ground and just succeed each other in a state of oblivion; and maybe these two states are phases of the cycle like inhalation exhalation
  2. Defining the Left and Right

    survival is one of human's primal instincts and one of the basic rules for mammals is that you are more protected in the herd than alone.I think the herd mentality of people is exploited by the ones with power and authority and turned into a black-white fallacy,as a war monger once said "you're either with us or against us".I think this black-white macchiavelli play is depicted with the masonic checkerboard and its best representation is the USA,the country built from secret societies from ground up,where you can only"choose" black or white,right or left.I'm not saying its all mind control conspiracy,its actually a very well constructed play based on real human problems and thats the genius of it. The black and white is a perfect play that tosses responsibility from one to the other and gives people the "right to choose".But choosing the ones who think for you and define your life is a "right"we should not be proud of.The left-right fallacy is ment to give people the illusion of choice and someone to blame,while the real question should not be 'who do I want to rule my life' but 'do I want a ruler or self determination' In reference to Taoism I think left and right conflict is the non lntegrating yin and yang
  3. Swallowing saliva

    hi fellow bums,last few months,I always keep my tongue on the roof of the mouth right behind the teeth and I,m salivating excessively which I read in here is a good thing(?) But with the excessive swalloning of saliva comes the gulping off too much air which brings bloating and short stomach aches.Sould I not keep the tongue at the top all the time?

  5. [TTC Study] Chapter 42 of the Tao Teh Ching

    isn't it interesting that this is also the start of the fibonacci sequence? 1,1,2,3...
  6. a wacko scenario I have in my head, is that this is part of a big plan that starts with a staged UFO disclosure.Terrorist attacks and the fear of them has made people feel less safe but most importantly,they have allowed governments to take drastic measures that shrink our freedom,you see our safety is their only concern. About my scenario,there will be a UFO disclosure(already started) but not in a way that will make us wiser but more afraid.Aliens will be considered a threat, there might even be a staged attack.Existence of a hostile advanced species will make us face a fear of a dark eventuality. Governments will invest in that fear and will come up with a way that will give us more chances against the powerfull enemy. The way is AI singularity,our only chances will be facing them as a hive mind.If we actually get to that point,this will be the actuall start of the alien AI overlord takeover.Palantir and the cryptocurrency I think are the first stages of the takeover.I don't believe this is the endtimes,as many unconsciously look forward to,but a great opporunity to lift the veil and claim our freedom. Of course this is only a scenario(all rights reserved).One thing for me is solid as rock:DO NOT TRUST AUTHORITY
  7. Gun Control and Shootings

    an anarchist would say no government,power to the people.A neoliberal would say less government,keep only the good stuff, police, army the "legal violence",and power to the CEOs
  8. The body of humanity

    " it's normal to be ill and you can live ill : so it's not illness it's a condition of living " oh well,what can you do?all is Dao! This is the cynical view,if one lives like this, it is almost sure one will survive and it is also possible one will have success but one can not grow,no matter how many spiritual facades one wears.It is very important to point that the cynical way works perfect for authority and the status quo. " illness is going to kill you if you don't treat. " I can relate to this,but must clarify that we must not try to change Nature, only ourselves.I believe we must embrace Nature but not emulate Her.Nature will allways be there and maybe the reason why,is that she has no compassion and empathy.Existence as a whole is her goal and She has no interest in individuals.If we where to emulate Her,we would lose our humanity.
  9. panentheism pantheism and Dao

    Makes sense if there is one ocean. The main reason I go with panentheism, is that Nature has all these patterns and tools which could be the software Dao put there in order to not be obliged to be around all the time.Of course software has to be operated every now and then.
  10. What are you listening to?

    putumayo presents is a huge and magnificent collection of ethnic tunes from all over the world
  11. from wikipedia Panentheism (from the Ancient Greek expression πᾶν ἐν θεῷ, pān en theṓ, literally “all in God” is the belief that the divine pervades and interpenetrates every part of the universe and also extends beyond time and space.Unlike pantheism, which holds that the divine and the universe are identical, panentheism maintains an ontological distinction between the divine and the non-divine and the significance of both. In panentheism, God is viewed as the soul of the universe, the universal spirit present everywhere, which at the same time "transcends" all things created. While pantheism asserts that "all is God", panentheism claims that God is greater than the universe. Pantheism is the belief that all reality is identical with divinity, or that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent god.Pantheism is mentioned in a Papal encyclical in 2009 and a statement on New Year's Day in 2010, criticizing pantheism for denying the superiority of humans over nature and seeing the source of man's salvation in nature. which of these terms better describe Dao,or none?The way I see it nature/universe is Dao but Dao is beyond nature. If that is the case must humanity transcend nature in order to embrace the Divine?
  12. Watching The Birds

    as far as I know most northern frog species,tree frogs included,get through the winter being actually frozen and going in suspended animation
  13. Watching The Birds

    beautiful thread how about gulls?they are so common but this doesn't make them less awesome.I was at the sea few days ago watching the seagulls and at some point my eye sticks at 2 of them flying very close to each other, spinning around making loops and all sorts of crazy stuff.Then they flew one behind the other, almost touching but never actually did,they took turns on who would be first and they competed who would go closer to the sea,few times they actually touched the water with the tip of their wings!such posers,its not even the first time I see them showing off,what majestic creatures
