    No problem. Good to see you can admit it when you're wrong.

    Who said the USA is awful? That's your hysterical misreading of what I said, which is, in effect, that it is a group of lions led by donkeys. Get rid of the donkeys, and the USA would imo be much better for it. And thanks for saving our sorry asses in WW2. That was a time when the USA was still...

    Watch this: It appears the suggestion is that the Plasco building didn't fall through fire (which reputedly was put out earlier), but after explosions. So if anything, in retrospect, its fall supports the 9/11 building collapses.

    And that's your tell, Eric. It may be not so much that you are convinced by the evidence on your side (which imo is pretty flimsy), as that a possible alternative explanation is so awful to contemplate. For a Brit, it's not so strange that in a country with a proven record of such deceit and...

    Well, Eric, it's plain that in this matter you're implacable in your defence of the official story. Seemingly no amount of evidence will ever open up your mind to different possibilities. All I can say is that for me, a Brit with not too much of an axe to grind, I find the evidence on the site...

    We're sympatico on a number of issues, Eric, but in this case, not so much. I'm a Brit and not so emotionally invested as many Americans in the events of 9/11, and I've seen a number of the "truther" videos. Until I looked at the site referenced in the podcast Runic posted, I wasn't aware of...

    Hallucination

    Well, Jim, seems to me you're implying that the brain and consciousness are different kinds of thing; the former is something that has hallucinations, whereas the latter (i.e. whatever produces NDE's) isn't. To my mind, that's a kind of dualism, albeit perhaps not of the usual sort. IMO...

    Hallucination

    One could argue that what is experienced is real -- including a hallucination. Suppose I drop some acid and see a two-headed unicorn, but I know it's not literally there; I still have the real experience of seeing something not literally there. Usage of the word "real" is usually predicated on...

    I don't know whether psychedelics open a window on higher consciousness. They do something, for sure, in the sense of changing one's mental state, but whether that's opening the mind to reality, I can't say. They might, I suppose, but if they do, it's not necessarily a permanent thing, nor...

    Bernardo Kastrup Doctoral Dissertation (2019) - Online Download

    He's certain to get it: his academic defence is just a formality - he said so on his forum. He's going to video the defence and presumably upload it to the web at some stage.

    Enlightenment, well-being, salvation: I think they're all just words in the end. If and when you get where you meant to, you'll know without the need for words. And you won't need to justify yourself or convert anyone to anything, though you might want to help them if you can. Are people really...

    You're not alone, Eric. I look on Christianity as you do, particularly in the bits I've marked in bold.

    I know you are an animist, and if that works for you, it's okay by me. You display an understanding in general of other viewpoints on reality, and come to many similar conclusions to mine. What you think of in terms of animistic principles I think of in terms of idealistic principles...

    Sufis maintain the means of attaining enlightenment change according to time, place and people. What might have worked for someone living in 10th century Baghdad wouldn't have worked in 10th century Europe, nor will it work in 21st century Baghdad or 21st century Europe. Everything changes as...

    Thanks, Michael. That's a lot clearer.
