  1. Mo Pai Nei Kung - New Here From Chicago

    Hi and Welcome. Seeing more people people from the Chicago area makes we wonder about having a social distanced meeting somewhere along the lake, sometime.
  2. Kundalini discovery

    A thought came to be over the last months. In which I see that what we are in our physical daily selves is just a reflection. When we try to change the reflection, we do not change the essence. Yet, since we know that everything is connected in this physical universe, changing the smallest thing is reflected on the whole. Take for a moment that space and time are an illusion and everything in a certain state of being happens at the same time. Our causal selves (physical body, ego, mind) sees a continuum where there is a point, time where there is timelessness and result where there is possibility. It is hard to put into words but look at the stars at night and feel how they are part of you and influence you. Then think about how a photon of light is a wave of probability until it interacts. feel the connotation of the word probability and what image you conjure when you think that all matter is, is a probability. than feel who it is that feels that thought. in a moment of wonder, we, for the first time realize again and again what we are. On the topic of kundalini our physicality is like code that revolves and once the right sequence of vibrations is established things "grow". Matrix is indeed a nice description and probably the closest approximation we have in our vocabulary. In the end this is all theoretical and descriptive. I had a vision a couple years ago where I saw that both the lock and the key is within us. How to turn the key and why is up to any of us to answer. If only we would remember...
  3. What do you see? (This is a test)

    It looks like a map and a planet in the bottom right waving it's hand at it.
  4. Do you still believe in coronavirus?

    I can understand the reasoning of thinking that this is just a flu on steroids. There is nothing bad in being skeptical, as long as it leads to dig deeper into the facts. Now I know of a dozen people that have died, and a couple dozen more who have been struggling for months. One of that, a forty something employee of my sister in law did not have pre existing conditions. It attacked his kidneys and he died after kidney failure. Of course this evidence is anecdotal, and while we hear the same things from every corner of every corner, we might ask what percentage of people are at risk. But that question is not easy to answer without knowing a couple of things. The primary being, what are the long term effects. is this virus a cold type coronavirus where when you get over it, you are through (until your immunity wears off) or is this an Epstein Barr type of virus that just hides and strikes back years later in your system. From my understanding, an effective long term vaccine is nearly impossible for corona viruses (common cold, SARS,...) and it doesn't seem to react much to regular anti viral drugs. Although there might be some drugs out there that have more of an effect but haven't been found or tried yet. We know it uses the lungs as the center from which it can attack any organ, like some other viruses. We also know that it is as good as airborne. We know it can stand sunlight and is not effected by heat, summer, cold. It does have low fatality rating per infection, but unless we find a cure, this disease might be the most deadly by the end of the century since it seems to not go away anytime soon. The best advice is to stay healthy and hope science finds a cure, working vaccine or some other method to eradicate this thing. You don't want to gamble with these odds given the facts.
  5. Is truth relative?

    I wish more people would have this sentiment. It feels that nowadays we are arguing and mad about hypothetical situations and ideology while if we were in the situation most of us would just give the hungry kid an apple. I feel a lot of us may have lost the value of human conduct already before covid, by spending too much time reading and watching news instead of walking in our streets and towns. Maybe the truth is both listening to your heart and to your head and integrate the two. Who cares about the unknown big truth when you can make the world a better place with your own experience of what your feel and understand to be true.
  6. Is truth relative?

    Whatever is, is Any thoughts about it, whether spoken or silent are relative. It is the eye of the beholder that is relative. Anything manifested is an absolute. Anything unmanifested a potential. One could say that it is based upon the unraveling of the quantum state of reality into state of causal reality that leads to absolutes from a potential. Now, reality is an absolute, but we as eye of the beholder are not. We cannot perceive reality as reality is, we perceive reality as we are through our paradigms and stories.
  7. I was contemplating something yesterday. Biologically a human is a collection of gene expressions and there is a drive to pass on those genes. On a rational and social level a human is a collection of idea's and beliefs that form ideologies. Those ideologies are build up from something science calls memes. cfr. https://www.amazon.com/Virus-Mind-New-Science-Meme/dp/1401924697 for a good easy readable book about memetics theory. It is said in meditation that we are not our body (with it's genes) and we are not our thoughts (with it's memes) Yet we seem to identify with both most of the time. My biggest question is if there is on a spiritual level another packet of information for which we are a vessel but that is not us in essence? As a side note; it feels like the first stages of spirituality or growth seem to have a lot to do with realizing and identifying that we are not are genes or memes. We neither the body, nor the thoughts or ideologies. And we are not the states of consciousness we go through?
  8. Do you think GSmaster has screw loose?

    You have a screw loose, but that doesn't mean you should leave. Many people here have loose screws. it is what makes us human; for better or worse.
  9. Maybe we all are trying to find meaning into things that have to intrinsic meaning. Nevertheless, this is a story both my wife and step daughter found interesting and while I find it a bit to new age like to my opinion, I must say it is quite well written. https://medium.com/@azrya/what-psychedelics-told-me-about-the-coronavirus-730a4a6b9714 also @Earl Grey I thought I read a couple days ago that you would/did ask the Akashic records about covid. Where you able to and is there a message? Sorry if you already posted it and I read over it.
  10. Yes I have and I do know that tetanus requires a way to your bloodstream (like a cut) and else isn't active. I also know that previous generations, including my dad spend their whole lives working in the earth and never got sick. While living in a suburb of a big city and see people never touching the earth and wiping all surfaces clean. Result of this is that their skin are full of human bacteria and that the balance is gone. Those people tend to have more allergies and strange illnesses. There are multiple studies that show that clean houses have more harmful bacteria, fungi and parasites that houses with pets which have more neutral soil bacteria. Everything in the world is a balance and if humans throw off a balance in a mechanistic way, the holistic mechanism will counterbalance and things backfire. Imagine what happens if you clean 99.99% of the bacteria of your hands. Which bacteria families will grow back the fastest? Would it be bacteria adapted to live on humans or soil bacteria? This advice I gave is not for people from rural areas and the soil should not be contaminated by mammal dung (in which tetanus and many parasites can live). Also I didn't say to eat it or bath in it. And to be honest, I and most people ate and played in dirt and mud as kids. But of course feel free to work in your garden instead and let nature calm you down. The result will be the same. And if you don't trust this advice, do not do it.
  11. While it might not help with the virus, there is something you can do to help with the problems of washing your hands too much and creating a too sterile environment. Dig up some earth from your garden (assuming you don't use herbicides or pesticides) and solve it in water and dip your hands in it after you wash them. Point is that neutral bacteria from the ground are helpful and make it less likely that human bacteria get the upper hand. Seems very intuitive and easy to do.
  12. What are we?

    After reading a number of books over the last couple of years I came to a new point of view in which I ask what we actually are. Premises: We are the vehicle of reproducing DNA (like all living organism0 We also seem to be a vehicle of spreading memes (little bits of information that that bundle into bigger clusters to form ideologies, culture,...) We are also not our thoughts We have an ego that is not our true self After struggles with this and the concept of soul (in the sense of our eternal self) I become more and more convinced that the whole universe is an organic matrix and everything are just patterns (whether amino acids or thoughts and memes) that spread in the form of entropy. It seems that our true selves are buried beneath it all and it takes a lot of work and uncovering to find oneself under all this conditioning. I'm sorry if I'm not more clear but it is hard to but the insights I got into words. We do not seem to have the right language and some of the concepts border and go beyond what the rational mind can conjure. In the end we don't need to explain what we are, but more how to live with the insight of what we are instead of living based on the will of DNA and memes.
  13. TBH, If I was a government agent researching "X-files" kind of stuff; I might imagine landing on this website from time to time. Just by doing google searches in certain topics one lands here. I wouldn't be surprised if this forum was on some top military watch list and regularly scanned for certain keywords. (together with about 10.000 other sites). Cfr. ECHELON About actively participating and discrediting (= directly influencing). It's highly unlikely. But I love the title. It looks like a cheap action thriller and g-d, we need some fun during this Corona-Cabin-fever
  14. How does one know if one has the virus versus regular flu without the test? I'm asking because I had two days of fever now and while I'm over the worst I wonder what I have/had? It probably is the regular flu. But what if it wasn't? There are barely test kits available in the whole of the US.
  15. @dawei I would like a PPD please. Thank you.
