CONCLUSION ON CONSCIOUSNESS:

Consciousness can not be created from scratch. Consciousness can only be manipulated in a sentient being by subjecting that sentient form to various stimuli like psychoactive drugs, brain surgery, electrical fields, hypnosis, smells, sights, sounds or touch therapy and so on.

It's a bit odd to me that you seem to feel smarter than the average theist yet you believe in these other equally unverifiable presences and events.
Had you a little intelligence, you'd wouldn't say that.

Theists take their stand on the extra-cosmic god who creates from nothing. This is illogical!

I take my firm stand on energy, matter and consciousness and the principle of conservation and the law of causation to which energy, matter and consciousness are subject to at all times.

Did you get it, now?

Mystical experiences are a phenomenal aspect of energy, matter and consciousness.

THEIST VERSUS MYSTIC

Theists take their stand on some strange substance that they call spirit and on the extra-cosmic god who creates from nothing with creation ex nihilo being an absurdity, while the mystic being a realist bases his mysticism exclusively on energy, matter and consciousness and the principle of conservation and the law of causation to which energy, matter and consciousness are subject to at all times.

Just arrived from a marvelous Indo-Western instrumental musical concert held at the Max Muller Bhavan by a team of Indian and German musicians. It was lovely.

Jesus' Kingdom of Heaven is a mythical place. It's not a spatiotemporal location. A physical place subject to the laws of energy/matter where destructive natural phenomena, disease, suffering, death and decomposition rule is not heavenly. At the most the Kingdom of Heaven could mean living in a blissful state of consciousness either while in the body or in the discarnate state (provided the bioenergy field with its inherent consciousness persists after the death of the body).

By the occult meant the manipulation of the energy field in/around a person using mantras (primal sound vibrations) or meditative practices.

A mantra (specific primal sound syllable) and/or meditative practice that seeks to awaken the higher states of consciousness inherent in the bioenergy field native to the brain/body system can manipulate the energy fields in/around an object and can have nonlocal effects. This activity is known as the occult.

Theists base their faith on spirit, extra-cosmic God and creation from nothing which are irrational terms lacking in substance or explanation, while mysticism/occult is founded on energy, matter and consciousness that're subject to the laws of conservation and causation. Here lies the major difference between theism and mysticism/occult.

The word SPIRIT is a misnomer as it implies a substance other than energy/matter which somehow mysteriously creates energy/matter out of itself or from nothing. All this is irrational. Every phenomenon in nature/being, whether of the ordinary material kind or of the occult kind, has to be based on energy, matter and consciousness that're subject to the laws of conservation and causation. This explanation makes better sense.

Hello Papa.

I appreciate Former's kindness but he's not knowledgeable in occult or in science - both of these disciplines (occult and science) are based on tapping into/manipulation of energy fields.

I repeat I am exposed to yogic experiences in great detail, while he knows nothing about the body's energy fields and how they can be manipulated locally/non-locally using various mantras/meditation practices.

Forget about paranormal powers that I have experienced and seen from very close quarters, if only you see me with the golden shine on my face, neck and hands you'll understand that there's some energy at work in me.

Besides, the frequent suffering due to occult influence involving certain subtle frequencies of energy being put onto me result in color change in the body from golden shine to greyish tan, reddish eyes, tremors of nerves, high fevers, abnormal palpitation rate, headache, draining of energy from the body etc which can be seen by anyone with the naked eyes.

See, had I still been a disciple of that monster, I would, for the sake of demonstrating long range occult power, have requested him to harm FORMER by getting him blinded, paralyzed or made insane in real time (that is I would tell FORMER to watch out for changes in his body/organ functioning at so and so time and to confirm it later).

Sri Aurobindo's spiritual collaborator, the Mother, often used long range occult power to give evidence of it to skeptics or to influence certain events and prior to employing her occult power she would tell the person concerned that on so and so day and at such and such time this or that thing would happen to him or to someone else and would ask the person to confirm it.

If the demonstration involved bodily harm she would tell the person the time at which she would change the person's heart beat, eye sight, body temperature etc and ask him to call out her name the moment the suffering got too extreme to endure so that she could case sending out the occult power.

She had nonlocal senses.

I too have sufficient evidence of nonlocal occult effects.....

Go back and reread what he has to say

He is not interested in debating you the fine points of your energy field.

He is offering you advice/assistance to get through a few moments of the day.

Give his advice a try. This is an order from your father.

My gut says you're overthinking all this.
You need to do a few things each day that bring you some level of satisfaction.
Some peace, some feeling of well being, perhaps more human contact.
They say it's not what happens to you (real or imagined), but how you respond that makes the difference.
All the best to you.

OK, as you say.

The suggestion I can work on when I am feeling well is to meet more people by either paying more attention to business details, or joining a squash group (I play the game very well), or joining a debating society or sitting down with a certain ex-scientist to study more of higher Math.

Studying more of higher Math gives me real pleasure since I am addicted to the subject.

I did try studying more of higher Math last year under the concerned ex-scientist as part of my preparation for doctorate level entrance exam but gave it up after I began suffering a lot for known reasons....

It's early afternoon here. I need to rest for some time. I'm a bit feverish. Later.

I am feeling worse lying down. The fever has increased and my nerves are beginning to shake. I am going shopping. Maybe if I interact with some people outside my attention will get diverted from these adverse symptoms.
