T. Metzinger at upcoming KFA "Reflections on the Self"

A recent event mailing tickled me as I saw Thomas Metzinger scheduled to appear at the upcoming April KFA conference, "Reflections on the Self."  It made me remember that 13 years ago I had a little email exchange with Thomas regarding his magnum opus BEING NO ONE, which I had by then spent a great deal of time with. Referring to one of his concluding remarks, "third logical possibility . . . minimizing phenomenal transparency" (p. 632), on a lark, I had offered K as "an odd sort of early…

Awareness only can help individuals and the world, not thoughts

Thought is terribly afraid of facing awareness.

Unbecoming

I sit down late in the night and begin to attempt at meditation and the best realization coming to mind is doing nothing, moving nowhere, having no trouble whatsoever. It is in fact an unbecoming.

This leads to silence!

Time is in consciousness.Moments are fleeting only. One is unable to hold up a moment.this truth can be seen.Only by seeing this and seeing that one takes up the right action at a particular moment one is in utter happiness.this also will lead to silence .

The Word is Not the Thing or The Word is the Thing

If this looks familiar to some, it is because it is a reprint of a blog I contributed some time ago.  I think it is worth reviewing again, but you may not.  If not, just pass over it, but some may not have seen it and might find it worthwhile to review and comment on....The word is not the thing or is it that the word is the thing?  Let's look together to see what is true and what is false, because this may lead us into a new dimension. Firstly, in the example, "the word tree…

Habits can be changed

Habits are formed,and these are not natural, thus these can be changed for the total benefit of humankind.

Exploring the within

My default mode of meeting the world is to look without, at objects (material, mental) that seem to exist separately from me, the looker. I feel the time has come for me to look within, at the nature of the looker (me) itself. 

All are invited on this walk by looking at the looker and sharing what you see/feel.

    What is the Difference Between "Truth" and "Fact"? 122 Replies

    Truth is "what is," and "what is" is the present -- only the present. The present can be neither captured nor measured.On the other hand, "fact" is that which WAS the truth. Fact is capturable ("caught in time") and is subject to measurement and analysis.The significance of this is that science is forever limited to only the analysis and measurement of facts. Truth -- the present -- cannot be measured in any way.Limited to only the analysis and measurement of facts, science can never arrive at…Continue

    just few words to introduce myself.41 italian, actually living in Thailand.I travel very much and everywhere I can notice human beings in a state of confusion, despair, self deceivement and so on.

    A MEDITATION IN PEACE. 1 Reply

    Do you realise there is a self center?  Can we start there? Do we have to think about what he/she says about this? Can’t I clearly see there is this animal operating as it does, with a brain, and it is not especially you or me, it is just a self center?  Do we have to go through the self-education process, debating, theorising, explaining, just to get to this point?Can we see there is this brain operation, and it is working from a self-center, and this is always becoming?  All the things I want…Continue

    Sitting and talking 1 Reply

    I was sitting at the outdoor seating at a cafe. It is an older, quiet place, with not a lot of patronage. There are flowering bushes near the street, vines growing over the awning and a very large tree casting an umbrella of sunlit foliage. I am drinking tea with my companions and chatting. Along come some people and also sit at table nearby behind me. Immediately I can hear a loud conversation on a telephone. A minute or so later this man taking a telephone conversation is pacing up and down…Continue

    Science can not study Life fully 3 Replies

    Science studies matter, it can't study rightly its interaction with spirit which is Atman in other words i.e the term used in hindu or Vedanta philosophy or Theosophy.Interacion of matter and spirit is Life.Thus science is unable to study Life and its principles generally.

    Thought vs Observation 1777 Replies

    All these years of participating in dialogues pertaining to K seem to have accomplished absolutely nothing.  Nothing has changed in my life.   Thought still rules, and where thought rules, there is no observation.  Broadly speaking, of course.  In the margins one might argue otherwise, but that would merely be a waste of time.Is there something I'm doing wrong.  Or is there something I'm failing to do?  But when I look around, much the same picture appears everywhere.  And of course K did…Continue

    Esse est percipi! 121 Replies

    My first acquaintance with Krishnamurti's work was in 1959 when I read his book The First and Last Freedom.What particularly aroused my interest was his deep insight into the question of the observer and the observed.This question has long been close to the centre of my own work as a theoretical physicist who was primarily interested in the meaning of the quantum theory.In this theory ,for the first time in the development of physics,the notion that the observer and the observed cannot be…Continue
