That is just so rich. Reminds me of a bunch of things. Like the dynamic yin-yang symbol:
Also reminds me of the double-triangle Star of David (Mogan David), which is dynamic in a similar way to the yin-yang symbol above. There's a perfect animation somewhere on the Net--for now, here's the plain symbol:
Also reminds me of colliding galaxies:
Perhaps when our scientific imaginations and our spiritual imaginations become vast enough, they can "interaccomodate one another in non-interfering frequency ways" as the dancing galaxies do.
Bucky's words also remind me of the cerebral nasal cycle:
In the end, the quarrel between religion and science may just be our right brains and left brains working desynchronously, and writ large at the cultural level.
The fact is that scientific knowledge and spiritual knowledge are already married, as Muktananda keeps reminding us.
Megan, thanks for leaving these breadcrumbs.
I wanted to respond, but rather, chose to begin my deep dive into various domains of artificial intelligence - from which I have returned.
...and remain intrigued by this dialog.
Does epistemic arrogance = cognitive bias.
Is “The world we live in is vastly different from the world we think we live in.” ?
What is implied by precessional side effects and evolutionary oscillators ?
Why do we 'need' to be right about spiritual stuff ?
Originally, I thought this thread was limited to the passionate rebuttal(actor-observer bias
) of Dawkins((apparent) megalomania), but began to question if the effort of this discussion simply manifests the Observer-expectancy effect
, and began to question if we can objectively ascertain if our thinking
is capable of producing the right
Is cognitive bias implicit and is ego implict and do they conspire to allow our fallacies to deceive us into thinking we are good at thinking ?
But, OK - some very cool things have happened since we began exploring these fascinating concepts. Perhaps we were feeling speculative about sacred geometry and colliding universes. These themes continue to emerge in new TOEs
Are we destined to use geometry
as a unifying language/thought ?
...there's a lot left to do.
there's a lot more to do...
