Such a bold assertion, yet no evidence of it. Funny that, you love those assertions without evidence.
That's all metaphysics ever is: bold assertions without evidence.

Wrong again, Infinite Donut Guy.

Infinite quantites in reality - now that's less credible than metaphysics - and you have claimed it numerous times. It's less credible because it's impossible.

There is an abundance of "evidence" for what is considered "metaphysics".



You are a fucking liar, by the way.

Yes, I do have something.

And no, it is not a first.

And no, it has not been demonstrated to be a scam. Ask scientists privately what they think. It's a different answer.

You don't know what you're talking about.

It scares them shitless.

They would have to admit something might exist that they cannot measure. Their measurements have advanced to the point they think nothing else can exist. Hence - the arrogance.

They want to assume for us all - to be the official gatekeepers of knowledge. Besides, the ones on Topix are full of shit anyway.

Another wild claim without any bases in fact. You're chock full of them.

Michelle Funk, a drowning victim, fell into the icy waters of Bell Canyon Creek in Utah as a child. Today she's a normal adult and shows no signs of her traumatic experience - no brain injury from oxygen deprivation even after 62 minutes under water. Moted.

Listen this metaphysical nonsense is childish. I still have a certificate stating I am a hypnotist. I used to hang with lots of you metaphysical junkies I have seen and heard it all.
I have a whole shelf of books going on and on about this.
Bottom line there is nothing to any of it. It's make believe for adults nothing more.

If you know all about metaphysics then you should have no problem explaining how simultaneous time effects the conventional theory of reincarnation. Give it a shot, ape-man.

I have been a reasearch mathematician for the last 25+ years. I am trained in physics and have worked as a physicist at an accelerator lab. I discuss the ramifications of various experiments on the different hypotheses that are current. My main interest is astrophysics, but there are also applications to accelerator physics in what I have done.
Try again.
Really? Business must be slow because you seem to spend an exorbitant amount of time on this forum making assertions you can't prove. LOL!

In a universe that is more psychological than it is physical, there is no real freedom but the freedom of ideas, and no real bondage but the bondage of ideas. The trick is to learn to discern the difference.

Dare to be adventuous - dare to leave your security blanket of scientific dictums and theories long enough to consider a different perspective. You can always go back to your fuzzy comfortable "bankey" if you become confused and frightened.

As god-stuff incarnate, we are spiritual beings trying to be human. We are part of a great infinite unknown reality breaking off from itself into minute physical versions. Each package of molecules is put together just right - spirituality and person merging together so that infinity and time are woven into genes, mortality and immortality each combining here now to form the self we know. Consciousness is the power out of which all realities emerge. The subjective images of our desires form our reality by leaping into the swell of space and time. Observe the facts of heart and mind alike, and refuse to accept any theories that deny your own subjective experience.

And this is not our world. Our world is more physical than psychological: most of the universe has no consciousness whatsoever.

I have considered the different prespectives and I found that I was simply playing games with myself when thinking about them. They reveal more about my own psychology than they do about reality. You don't see the distinction.

How exactly do you distinguish between your *subjective* evidence and a vivid imagination?
You don't know?

One is a tool, the other is reality.
You're avoiding the question.

How do you distinguish between evidence that is the result of your vivid imagination and evidence that is the result of reality (but which is not available to anyone else, for some reason)?
