Unhacking Wars - comment 67183
well, mark i claim that anytime there is a identity boundary, the same kind of dynamics emerge. it does not matter much what creates the boundary between that which is inside and that which is outside. therefore if #ego separates what people are inside from that which is outside and therefore creating the excuse for #RWG, then if a group of people are separated for other people, the same fetures will emerge. And guess what, we see that happening again and again in almost whatever grouping that gets defined.Interesting identity boundary described by RS about the elementals in
These beings do not feel their self — their ego — as man feels his in the physical world; they permeate that self with their will much more than man does his; they will their own existence as it were, and feel their existence as something which they give to themselves through their will. On the other hand, with regard to their thinking, they have not the feeling that they are creating their thoughts, as man creates his; they feel all their thoughts as suggestions, as something which is not in them but in the universe, and which is streaming out of the universe into their being. Thus in these beings no doubt can ever arise but that their thoughts are the reflection of the thought-order poured forth into the universe. They do not think their own thoughts, but cosmic thoughts. With their activity of thought they live in cosmic thoughts; but they will their existence. Their life of feeling is shaped in accordance with this will and thought of theirs. They feel themselves to be a link in the whole cosmic system; and they feel the necessity of willing their existence in a manner corresponding to that system.
R.S. The Threshold of the Spiritual World (*)
I do not think dividing the world into spiritual and physical helps me live. I have seen, from the outside, how others live according to that distinction. It does not look like something that i want to do.
Sure i can well distinguish the last time i swam in water between walking on a tril in the wooods. I rarly run there so am not sure to what you refer.
Yep my description of “a metaworld” is an abstraction. It is a mathmatical abstraction. It is that kind of domain. Those kind of abstractions are the #context from whence the thoughts emerged. #GoodThough … i thought you liked mathmatics … #GW was certainly into it.
Lately i have discovered a way to read #RS such that he makes much more sense to me than taking him literally. Now i read him like i hear a saga or a drama or a ancient myth … like star wars … or star trek … or the matrix … or the holy bible. It is all allagory. Even in his lecture on the 8th spere he says that himself before he starts talking. Did you catch it?
