Alan Watts – Hoax? Alcoholic? Genius? Guru?

I must start off with by saying that the first times I heard his audio lectures they really did good for me. In many ways, as in opening up to further references and knowledge, as in hearing a talented man articulating himself and as in instant inspiration and some deep realizations. Then only years later ...

The inevitability of singularity

There is an interesting connection between some religious and spiritual practices and the transhumanism movement - on where we come from and where we are destined to.

Gayatri Mantra and Christ

The religious meanings all come from some kind of a common source. Like as they dispersed from that essential source into different and rather brutal diversions. Looking at the wonderful Gayatri Mantra we find the word savitur which is too close to the word saviour. So there is a connection with the Gayatri Mantra and ...

Sokrates teori är att rättvisa i handling och intention är det evigt sanna och det som leder till lycka i livet. Duon bestående av Glaukon och Adeimantos (Platons bröder) ...

Platons Idévärld

Behövs den platonska idévärlden för att förklara något i våra liv och vår tillvaro? På bästa sätt? Detta är det viktigaste att fråga om huruvida någon teori eller föreställning överhuvud taget är nödvändig. I vår kunskapsbildning använder vi oss utav ”osynliga” faktorer som är inblandade i den bästa förklaringen vi har och använder. Så som ...
