HUGH:

Don't rabid Christian evangelical types spew hatred against non-Christians?

BTW, in you usual diatribe against rabbis, have you paused to think whether all rabbis are like those who you've mentioned above?

In my experience, they constitute a small minority.

Most rabbis are liberal and many are closet atheists.

With most Jews it is the cultural baggage which counts more than those scriptural fairy tales attributed to bronze age peasants which have anyway been shown false and with increasing inter-community marriages among Jews the cultural emphasis on "Jewishness", too, is being diluted, while reliance on scientific thinking is growing.

Open your "potato" eyes.

HughBe--- There is nothing private about my definition of choir, it is a STANDARD definition. Learn this, in the world of NORMAL people when one speaks of choir one thinks religion.
Frijoles------Does your church have a choir?
HughBe--- I attend 2 denominations most Sabbaths. One has choirs and the other I would say does not have.
Frijoles--- Do you sing in it?
HughBe--- I sing with the voice of an archangel but I do so as a soloist.
Frijoles---If so, do you wear one of those funny robes? What color? What part do you sing? I bet you are an alto.
HughBe--- 1. Robes are worn in the Anglican churches a denomination that as a child I was required to attend by my parents.
2. No robes.
3. The alto question is really a reflection of your lustful sexual desires for my thick black DicK and my sexy black rear. As I have said so often, please channel those desires elsewhere e.g. to Eric as he is a man of rear appetite.
Speaking about the devil, what have you done with the fellow?
Already posted a definition of choir which contradicts your solo claim. Why dost thou make me go around in circles? Dost thou think I am a fool?

You still didnt answer the part about your vocal range (though thank you for the additional info about your solo career. You must be very talented. Or anti-social.)

Thanks for the info about the robes. That was a curiosity, of course, about how colonized minorities such as yourself have adapted, and I see you have somewhat rejected the culture of your oppressors.(Now, if you would just cast off the alien religion, and return to your island or African practices of your ancestors...)

FORMER THE HOMO knows a lot about anal odors and other such repulsive stuff since he's heavily into anal sex (as the receiver given his girlish nature) during which he and his boyfriend encounter the shit and its smell. Sick mind.

Jewish libertarian - that is pretty odd. Most jews fight libertarianism like wolfs in the night.

Jews do have power in governments and in government secured monopolies such as the banking monopoly.

They fight hard to have that monopoly and to lie about people like Ron Paul.

BTW Karl Marx was jewish, bolshevist were jews, Trostsky the leader of the red army was jewish, Rothschild family was jewish, those who control the fedral reserve are jewish.

HOW NOT TO FEEL SUFFERING OR PAIN BY BECOMING THE WITNESS CONSCIOUSNESS:

The strange thing about brain-EM-generated consciousness is that it can divide itself into a witnessing aspect and a frontal active part.

If, say, I am ill and if I take the positive stand that my illness is a passing phase, then, with a little practice, I can separate the association of my brain consciousness with the illness by standing aloof from it.

The usual reaction of most people is to identify the brain-generated consciousness with the illness and with all its sufferings and besides to bring into the picture a whole set of morbid suggestions.

By standing aloof from the disease condition one begins to stop worrying and to simply observe the body and its reactions at work.

The minute this can be done fully, one observes that the usual suffering and all the fears associated with an illness lessen or disappear and under this non-interfering poise of consciousness the body's autoimmune systems slowly become more potent and at the same time the medicines work better to cure the condition in the shortest possible time while the witnessing consciousness just observes the entire process without being disturbed.

Some years ago, boiling hot water from an electric kettle fell on my stomach and right thigh while pouring out the liquid into a bowl. I was in great pain. I soon collected myself and instead of calling a doctor, I first calmed down and dissociated my consciousness from the pain and amazingly in minutes the pain reduced considerably and after say 3 or 5 minutes it had disappeared. I stayed in this state of a witness consciousness detached from the serious burn for more than 2 hours and then at the insistence of my servants a doctor was summoned who did the needful and left. The recovery was lightning quick and the scars disappeared fast.

This event showed my how the consciousness, despite being a product of brain-EM activity, can stay aloof from the workings of the body and be at peace and when this dissociated state is achieved the association with the body of the brain-consciousness that interferes with the physical condition and affects it with its very presence (as a pulsating EMR and by its EM-generated negative thoughts/fears), can be reduced or eliminated altogether.

WITNESS CONSCIOUSNESS VERSUS FRONTAL CONSCIOUSNESS

Furthermore, the consciousness can simply stand back and watch the workings of the exteriorized consciousness that's involved in observing the world go by.

One part of the brain-generated consciousness can be made to stay aloof from the observational aspect of the same brain-generated consciousness - in this separated poise, the witness consciousness simply watches the other aspect of consciousness (which is the frontal part) busying itself in watching events in one's surroundings.

So, the consciousness can not only dissociate itself from the pain of illness but it can also stand aloof from its frontal aspect and witness the latter (frontal consciousness) taking in the sights, sounds, smells and conversations taking place in the surroundings.

This dissociation of the various aspects of consciousness from each other generates greater peace, greater discrimination and a sense of not being involved in the rush of the world.

EM and gravitation generated fields stretch into space far beyond their source. Consciousness that's generated in the brain stretches out far beyond the brain into the environment. EM waves generated in the brain manifest consciousness and it's these EM waves that radiate beyond the brain and if sufficiently potent can influence events outside of us.

EM fields that follow the inverse square law travel far away from source and at a sufficiently far distance can function independent of the source. Brain-EM generated consciousness field behaves in a similar way. So, there's no bar to the field, depending on its strength, of brain-generated consciousness to being local or nonlocal or glocal. Scientists should research these phenomena of consciousness that're corroborated by reason and yogic experience.

RUPERT SHELDRAKE: NAIVE NEW-AGER

Rupert Sheldrake, psi researcher and Oxford biologist, says that consciousness is not generated by the electromagnetic field of complex neuronal activity. Dr Sheldrake states that brain waves correspond to various states of consciousness but that consciousness is not produced by brain activity.

Rupert Sheldrake, David Bohm and Fritjof Capra were close to the influential Indian philosopher, the late J Krishnamurti.

Mystics of all ages said/say the same thing that consciousness is independent of the body (matter).

Conversely, science is capable of altering our cognitive faculties via brain surgery, psychoactive drugs and em radiations and death of the neurons results in disappearance of consciousness. Some would argue that this consciousness, which is supposedly independent of the brain, somehow lifts out of the brain and continues its existence out of the corpse in some spiritual dimension.

Ironically, till today, no one has been capable of pinpointing the substance of which consciousness is composed of and no one has been able to tell us, backed with evidence, if consciousness, in whatever abstruse form it is supposed to exist, survives the death of the body. In the same way, spirit is another mumbo jumbo word.

Science has all the hard facts, while religion/mysticism has only belief/speculation to fall back upon.
