Nothing that I understand can be associated with truth (as in the cosmic truth) but I can change what I believe as time progresses. In the last 3-4 centuries mankind has gone from the beginning of an industrial revolution to a spacecraft leaving the solar system. Our thoughts about the cosmos have changed.akopen: I'm working on bulk KiMare. Soon. Soon. Soon your eyes will be opened.
ALAN: I doubt it. KiMare is too set in his ways and too old to change much. Good change bad change, does it matter?
akopen: Constantines eyes were opened on the last moments of his life. He was too scared to commit to Christianity, the Church and fail his new, changed ways. So he waited until the very last moment.
ALAN: The very last moment is too late. Like billions and billions of human beings Constantine died like a dog.
akopen: Change is good.
ALAN: What is there in us that can change? Change for the better or change for the worse? Re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic is how most people live their lives but if one wants to participate in what the Universe is doing one must come to terms with the conflicts between the different centers of his brain, the triune brain. Real change is only possible when the three lower centers, the lizard brain, the mammalian brain and the neocortex are brough into a state of balance and harmony. And since few human beings ever accomplish this it is unlikely real change is possible.
Science has proven they can change the behaviour of lab rats.
So too, my understanding of God, my meager attempt at understanding what, how we perceive God changes as I continue to absorb through man's limited experience (existentialism).
Reading your posts, conversation with others is very much a part of that experience I speak of and that becomes what and how we develop our perceptions and our minds.
