Ninjin, once again you suprise me. I never took you for a man of faith!

Upon what evidence do you base your belief that this universe of yours exists anywhere aside from your own mind?

People make you afraid because you want something from them. You want their approval. You believe you must have it. Otherwise, why be afraid? The Buddha called it attachment. Anthony de Mello said we are all addicts. Junkies going through life in fear, desperately, mindlessly seeking our drug. The r...

Oh, Im not advocating for a computer simulated universe. Its an interesting idea is all. And it doesnt strike me as all that unlikely in the long run considering what we've done up to now. That idea, simulation, seems like a big part of who we are. And what ultimate limit is there really to what we ...

Ninjin you suprise me. I thought you were a materialist. Dont you believe that consciousness is caused by the brain? And what is the brain if not a biological computer? Isnt DNA a digital code?

What happens when we start building computers equal in complexity to our own bodies?

Maybe when one sees that every unhappiness is unreal, then all that is left is happiness.

My definition of happiness: life without worry. Though that's not quite right, because even with worry you can be unworried about worry.

So then maybe you could just say that happiness is simply unworry.

Heres another take on the same theme that was recently the #1 most popular article on nytimes.com. For some reason, reading this article made me feel for the first time like we are living in a new millenium. Theres always been Vedanta, Gnosticism and more recently The Matrix , but when the stately p...

Id say that its not more thoughts or less thoughts, but what is your relationship to your thoughts? We tend to believe our thoughts. We cherish our thoughts, defend out thoughts, kill for our thoughts, die for our thoughts. The idea of losing our thoughts terrifies us. We consider our thoughts real,...

Then I realized that all the thoughts (and the emotions that followed) that created this distressed "me" were not actually me. I am separate from that. It's just a massive trick. Kapow! When the mind-generated pain is intense enough, and you realize that trying to fix it only makes it worse, all yo...

Well my friend, it seems to me that you are enjoying the creative output of your mind. All the drama and fantasy. The romantic life of a victim and a dreamer. As long as that is so, you really arent going to be too interested in giving it up. Just realize, if you savor your part in the drama the min...
