Interesting article Mike. Thank you. I like the Charles Manson quote because it is true: "If all is one then nothing is wrong." (Also, nothing is right.) Charles Manson's logic was absolutely correct. And if we are to say that what he did was wrong (and it was) we have to admit that "all is not one."
My mind winces in the same way when I hear people say that truth is relative. It is the same as saying there is no truth.
But, as Michael Chui points out above, one of the interesting things about the subjective reality theory is that no one who espouses it actually lives it:
Every one of them still believes they're human beings, rather than space whales floating across a temporal web stretched across galaxies.
No one really lives practically on a day to day basis treating the universe as though they themselves are creating and projecting it as they go. All of the good articles and interesting advice on this website would be completely pointless if there were not an actual objective reality.
Quote from GK Cheserton
on "Oneness," from Orthodoxy:
...the doctrine that we are really |
all one person...if I may put it so, does not tell us
to love our neighbours; it tells us to be our neighbours.
Love desires personality; |
therefore love desires division.
