It does appear that with the Jamaican, the monk, and Mr Apu that the lunatics have taken over the asylum for now.

IMPERISHABLE EXISTENCE:

1) MATTER being a compound has parts and can be divided into smaller and smaller particles until one arrives at its source which is energy.

2) Try subjecting energy to fission and it is seen that this cannot be done.

3) Similarly, thoughts can resolved into the underlying idea and the idea into the vibration of mind stuff that arises as waves in being and matter.

4) Mind can be stilled and sublimated or dissolved into awareness that cannot be further divided or fissioned.

5) So, we conclude that consciousness and energy that form a unified field cannot be further divided into something more fundamental except for the fact that there exist finer and still subtler states of consciousness and energy until the state of pure consciousness with its innate pure energy component is reached. This is the absolute consciousness which is the origin of existence or of everything in existence.

6) So, pure consciousness with its inherent pure energy content is self-existent and eternal and the source of the subtle and gross ranges of the universe.

Yeah!!!

AS CONSCIOUSNESS-ENERGY cannot be further fissioned or divided by any means, thus it stands to reason (and is a common yogic experience) that the unified field of consciousness-energy is the whole and the absolute source of the universes though its manifestation comprises numerous subtle and gross states ending in matter.

ASPECTS OF THE REALITY:

The surface nature of the universe is mutable and relativistic, the subliminal nature of the universe is plastic and holonic and the transcendental nature of the universe is monistic and absolute.

THE NATURE OF THE ULTIMATE REALITY:

On the highest level of Consciousness with its innate Energy component -

there is no God and no Universe,

no You and no I,

no Angel and no Devil,

no Name and no Namelessness,

no Form and no Formlessness,

no Attributes and no Non-Attributes,

no Existence and no Non-Existence,

no Mutability and no Non-Mutability and

no Heaven and no Hell.

There exists only Pure Consciousness with its dormant Pure Energy component in that absolute poise.

MECHANISM OF BEING & NATURE:

1) Consciousness = Awareness.

2) Awareness is Perception.

3) Perception leads to Understanding.

4) Understanding leads to Dynamic Action.

5) Dynamism involves Energy of Conciousness.

FAITH BRINGS IN WORRIES:

Faith is always blind since one merely believes in something without proof and without any assurance that the thing believed in will yield the expected result or work out the way one desires it to. This gives rise to wishful thinking, bigotry, irrationality, delusion, fatalism and frustration. So, faith is a big burden and brings into the psyche of the believer its own load of worries.

STOP BELIEVING.

SUGGESTION: BEING & BECOMING

Never believe in anything blindly. Inquire thoroughly into the logic of the process and if it seems probable and realistic then make every effort to realize and materialize it in the now!

CONCLUSION:

IF by faith is meant belief in God or Prophet then remember that neither Allah nor Vishnu nor YHVH nor Muhammad nor Jesus nor Buddha nor Ahura Mazda are wise or powerful enough to change us or the world into the stuff of perfection since the higher and the highest ranges of perfection are way beyond these lowly entities.

THE SEARCH CONTINUES....

EVIDENTLY, we've still not found the perfect God or the perfect Prophet. The various versions of God and the numerous Prophets of the different religions are so many minor entities.

I did, move
So, In a volunteerist society, whenever your neighbor does something that adversely affects your quality of life and won't listen to reason, the only recourse you have other than to grin and bear it is to move? And probably at a significant property value loss to boot since no one wants to move next to a toxic waste dump. Sounds pretty feeble to me. I don't think you thought this through all the way.

That was exactly my point. If it was alive in the womb, then it would have been killed upon being expelled. Since Exodus makes it clear that it is not killed, then it could not have been alive in the womb. Well, "alive" in the sense that it was not yet a living person. Obviously, the cells were living and multiplying...
I'll have to disagree with you,but todah for replying.

Volunteerist needs to change his name to Idealist, because these are all ideas and nothing more. No facts on the ground. No societies to point towrds. That I know of, at least.

unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the
pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights,
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed…”
This of course is repeated in “state” constitutions such as
Arizona:“governments … are established to protect and maintain
individual rights.” Arizona constitution article II § 2 . This is why
standing and jurisdiction must always involve a plaintiff’s rights.
rabbee: you still, miss the point. the declaration of independance, is the letter to england. and does not stipulate, any specific rights or laws. of their intent to seperate and cut ties, with the brittish empire. it does not designate, any of the duties of the three branches of the yet to be government.

and now you have a government that is doing, precisely what the brittish empire was doing. taxing the hell out of us, and running roughshod over our ""unalienable" " rights for the sake of the few. the constitution is the document, of the majority rule, not minority rule.
