I am not even a monist who sees everything as one in the essence.
One is not the truth.
The ultimate truth is a singular system of unified aspects that're fashioned from the basal field of consciousness-energy via an innate causation.
The nondualist thinks that consciousness is the only reality as in his altered mind states he experiences only differing degrees of awareness, while he ignores or is only partially aware of the basis of the dynamic side of pure existence which is energy.
Consciousness and energy are not one thing but rather they form a unified field in which each is completely involved in the other and each cannot exist without the support of the other.
They're like say the obverse and reverse sides of a coin.
I am a realist who perceives the ultimate reality not as a single entity in which everything is undifferentiated but rather as a unified field of consciousness-energy that leaves behind the residue of pure consciousness when its innate energy component falls silent or when it enters a state of dormancy.
This according to me is the way existence is.
I am sorry. You are an acosmic panentheist.

You are definitely a person that uses 50 dollar words where 5 cent words may be appropriate. Certainly this vocabulary is not how you speak to women when courting? Get a girlfriend. I am entertained by your convoluted thoughts at times and at times think you look for the most complex words you can put together and then do so, but at an alrmingly quick rate. Yes, your vocabulary is very good from what I can tell. Why mix up simple concepts so much as to make them appear complex.

It's easy to make things complicated, much harder to simplify. There is strength in brevity and clarity.

Nature, the phenomenal side of the dynamic form of the absolute, is everything only in the manifestation.
The phenomena of nature are evanescent and endure as long as the manifestation of the absolute lasts.
The forms of nature can be manipulated, transformed, regressed, progressed or dissolved into the seed elements and seed principles and withdrawn into the causal mechanism that inheres in the unified field of consciousness-energy that itself is the dynamic projection of the absolute which is pure consciousness with its inherent pure energy component.
The "true everything" is the self-existent, supracosmic absolute whose partial manifestation via its innate causal mechanism gives rise to its dynamic aspect which is the cosmic system or nature with its multiple planes and numerous phenomena.
Panentheism (from Greek &#960;&#8118;&#957 ; (pân) "all"; &#7952;&#957; (en) "in"; and &#952;&#949;&#972; &#962; (theós) "God"; "all-in-God") is a belief system which posits that the divine (be it a monotheistic God, polytheistic gods, or an eternal cosmic animating force), interpenetrates every part of nature and timelessly extends beyond it. Panentheism differentiates itself from pantheism, which holds that the divine is synonymous with the universe.[1]

Yes, in this sense, every thing/every phenomenon is of nature and so there's nothing unnatural.
The phenomena or nature is constituted of opposing elements in the lower manifestation where dualism rules.
So, good and bad are dual aspects of the lower nature.
The individual of discrimination accepts or is naturally inclined to the beneficial and uplifting aspects of nature and gains in the process as he sees his psychology, emotions, body, family life and professional career blooming. Such an individual will never ruin his gene pool or mar his mind, emotions, body, family life and career by indulging in say cocaine addiction or incest or murder or illegal felling of trees or self-mutilation or suicide or terrorism as these are the negative and degrading aspects of nature or harmful traits of the unregenerate frontal personality.
We should continuously reject the bad and damaging aspects of nature and if we are yogis we should try and transform or dissolve them by bringing down a higher force of the unifying kind into the depths of being. While the lower aspects of nature are based on the play of the opposites, the higher aspect of nature is complementarity - of one lower truth positioned beside a higher truth - until one arrives at something higher than simple complementarity which is the unity of all phenomenal or nature truths and from this unified poise one rise in consciousness into the supracosmic realms that takes one altogether out of the cosmic manifestation and so on until one finally unites with the absolute.

For some strange reason, when I read Joel's posts, the following video comes to mind. This has been done under various companies. First time I saw it was Rockwell based, now something else, but still funny. A matter of putting together a lot of complex words but saying very little. Sorry, Joem, you just remind me of this.

Joel posted this ... Didn't catch it the first time 'til Beans posted a comment:

J: So, good and bad are dual aspects of the lower nature.
IDGAF: How can you be sure of this? What is good? What is bad? We understand good/bad because of a societal acceptance of these definitions. How do we really know the difference? We are condtioned through what society says is correct, not always by the correct. Just saying ...

J: The individual of discrimination accepts or is naturally inclined to the beneficial and uplifting aspects of nature and gains in the process as he sees his psychology, emotions, body, family life and professional career blooming.
IDGAF: but are these from true discrimination between the good and bad? There are some very troubled people who are the best people that they can be, but still are very troubled. They make good choices, bad things happen to them regardless. Karma? Or just shitty luck? Hard to tell, but I don't see genralizing that making the Good Choice will always bring a blooming life. Sometimes bad shit happens to good people. That's just life.
J: Such an individual will never ruin his gene pool or mar his mind, emotions, body, family life and career by indulging in say cocaine addiction or incest or murder or illegal felling of trees or self-mutilation or suicide or terrorism as these are the negative and degrading aspects of nature or harmful traits of the unregenerate frontal personality.
IDGAF: we can respectfully agree to disagree on this set of comments. Too many good people who make good choices in life and live wonderful lives get caught up in all of the above. Making a statement that being pure of mind, body and spirit will keep away the bad is simply flawed. You may live a perfect life and be overtaken by canceer. You may live a perfect life and get caught up using drugs due to illness. You may be living a perfect life somewhere and get caught up with an extremist group. This can start off totally unintentional. Life is simply not this simple. You can simplify and the simpler you keep it, the less likely bad things may happen to you. One of the challenges in life is overcoming adversity. Life would be too boring if bad things didn't exist.

Stage theory sounds like life in general. But as I was looking through your link, I started thinking that evolution can be categorized in stage theory, but much, much slower if indeed it exists.

The fundamental bias behind most stage theories is that the most developed level is also the highest level - usually occupied by the guy who is creating the theory. I see this is Joel - he assumes that enlightenment happens in stages.

Well, Joel is definitely different. I think we could do the turbo encabulator on Joel's view of life and becoming.

So, I see lots of phylosophy here. What's your background? I've never put much time or thought into general phylosophy, but I have my own crazy thoughts just the same. My background is more on the technical sciences and mathematical.

I work in the physical sciences. But I come from a religious background, and had plenty of schooling in the social sciences and a little in the humanities, and did my stint in the eastern philosophies and new age therapies back when still a lad (Ever notice no one during past life regression discovers that that they used to sweep manure? They are always queens and kings- but I digress).

So I am spread thin, like a dose of sucrose acetate isobutyrate in Gatorade.(you can google that if you are interested or read check out the front page of todays NYtimes).

HughBe--- You have not explained the ANOMALY plus the part about Jesus being a member of the triune. Do so NOW.
Having said that, do you really understand your OWN words? NO.
Do you understand my words? NO
And what part of unique don't you understand. Unusual, unexpected, unique. The same. You don't like unique? Use a word of your choice. It still stands that those who have religious beliefs similar to you segregate their places of worship by socioeconomic status. It is unusual and unexpected that "religious" people would do so.

Nice background. I spent a whole youth working in farms doing a lot of odd stuff like your manure sweeping. Hehehe ... Over time learned a thing here and there and ended up as a pro doing neat stuff.

So, essentially a weighting agent, a stabilizer, a preservative. Brings to mind formaldahyde. The sugar compound that is ...

Joel is definitely a creation of his own. What I'd like to understand is the transformation and path that leads you to where you end up.

For me, initially I didn't believe anything as I was not educated or knowledable at an early age. External influences referred to God. Was sent to Sunday school. Had my own thoughts and lots of questions. Didn't take to the formal training on religion very well. Have spent most years with my own thoughts on what God is and how He works and is there or not. At times I've dabbled into the bible, but I tend to get bored with the stories. Seems to describe a very jelous and needy god. I just don't see it that way. An all powerful God wouldn't need us or care that we worshipped Him. So, I end up where I am today with questions and thoughts that don't necessarily agree with the status quo. I do enjoy asking the questions as I know there are no answers, but am amused by people's responses and at times I see new things.

STUDY my post below and stop twisting your little mind. It is not clever what you are doing, it is sheer STUPIDITY.

STUDY what follows. Don't open your mouth and reinforce your stupidity.

__________
Let me help you in your attempted explanation. I have copied my post and your response to it. Now in explaining YOUR words do so in its CONTEXT plus define anomaly and fit your definition into your sentence. Let me illustrate it for you.

HughBe---I would have gone to churches where the majority are professionals/business people and YES there are those types of churches.

Eric---It's (unusual or unexpected) of those who believe that Jesus was the Messiah and a member of the Triune.

NOTE the replacement of"an anomaly".

Note--My example MEANS, attending TWO churches is UNEXPECTED and UNUSUAL for someone who believes in the Trinity.

__________

Original words follow, give it a try.
HughBe---I would have gone to churches where the majority are professionals/business people and YES there are those types of churches.
