When will science as a "philosophy" be looked down upon the same way religion is now? People are being brainwashed into thinking it holds any answers regarding the true nature of existence.
>>
>>26387041
So why don't we all keep killing ourselves until we reincarnate as a Chad?

As that's fucking stupid and basing yourself primarily on how you look is what halts the discovery of the truth.

We can transcend this dismal existence merely by knowing the truth.

Science is the best way to reach the truth tho

It's just that it's fucking slow because scientific procedures take painstaking effort to be 100% verifiable, and less verifiable but potentially groundbreaking perceptions are often thrown to the wayside because they could cause serious harm to the whole chain built upon scientific axioms should they turn out to be untrue

Science only gets dogmatic when people start thinking that they should pretend that only that which is known to exists is what exists, and when people begin openly resisting changing their understanding or conducting "stupid" experiments using scientific means

Also all that ethos shit too...

This is very true, there's nothing wrong with science or the scientific method in my opinion. I've always said science is taking the long road while various (eastern) religions took the shortcut based on intuition. The scientific community just seems too wary to jump into the abstract. My biggest problem are the drones who cover their ears to anything but what their told by science. Science may be able to find the truth and prove it, but we can find it for ourselves now.
>>
>>26387235
You're wrong tho
This is the afterlife
Don't you remember?
You're already dead
WAKE UP!! WAKE UP!!!
If you die here you go to the underworld for real...

Just kidding, lol

But actually tho, this life is technically the afterlife that arose from your non-life before it, so it's not intuitively that unfeasible but also can't really be proven
>>
>>26387235
if you realise you are the universe it only seems natural that you become another body after this one dies
after all we are all I
if a being on a distant planet comes into beeing that's you coming into being
I am is god everyone who read the bible knows this
>>
Is it possible that we're all tied to the planet itself? And each planet in space is it's own God with it's own reincarnation cycle with it's life.
>>
>>26387263
>>26387267
The matter you're made out of isn't conscious. It isn't alive. Something that isn't alive can't have an afterlife.
>>
>>26387235
If the deepest roots of the subconscious, the "soul", exists beyond time and space then naturally when one died your perception would default to the timeless state of the deep-subconscious.

It is widely believed that time does not exist but within out perception. We existing consciously as beings held within time. In this sense it is our lives which cannot be real, and our death that can be the only thing that is real.
>>
>>26387305
nah your next life probably won't be on planet earth. chances are way too low. this universe was made for life to exist and there are probably infinitely many other planets with different beings on it
also i don't believe in karma as some magical judgement thing i think it's just random what body the I takes on this time
>>
>>26387313
But the matter I'm made of wasn't conscious until it became conscious
Following your reasoning I shouldn't be conscious right now, and neither should you

Maybe we aren't really conscious to begin with...

>>26387257
Subjectively silly perceptions should be tested, not dismissed! But with finite resources, and the often untestable nature of those perceptions, I can understand why they often are dismissed, and rightfully should not be incorporated in a scientific framework. Gotta keep your truths, falsehoods, and could be truth but also could be falsehoods separate

If the deepest roots of the subconscious do exist beyond time and space, then deja vu is explained as a momentary leak from the subconscious mind, which would have knowledge of all that will/could happen.

>>26387324
The "soul" cannot exist beyond time and space whilst also being a part of it. Also time does exist- it literally has to for multiple events to occur. It doesn't really matter though because the soul doesn't even exist in the first place

>>26387461
Your perceptions are elementary and unrefined.

This very universe has a soul. A soul that exists beyond time and space, containing all that is, was and will be. You may see this as the potential, time being the kinetic.

Without the potential, how can there be the kinetic? Without the kinetic, how can there be the potential? Paradox.

This paradox lies at the heart of the soul/mind interaction. All of this has already happened. Technically you are already dead.

Enlightenment is non-binary, and is related to the non-binary function of free-will.

I'll give you a gem to ponder upon

Time is the duration of transformation. It is the measure of phases within a transformation. When you walk to the store, you are transforming yourself, mentally and physically. The illusion of what we call "time" is the brain alotting reality into consecutive frames. The truth is, everything is just constantly shifting, changing itself until its transformation has been exhausted or completed (death, disintegration, etc.), if it can even be considered to have an end.

Indeed, that's why I used the word pride. The assertion that we're all God (which is false if you knew that we're contingent beings while a God must be a necessary Maximally great being) plays on pride, not self worth, you can feel self worth without feeling the need to claim Godhood, however pride inherently derives from self idolatry, hence why I used the word pride.

Well in that sense you are completely right.

But in another sense, the divine mindset, in which one's worth, and the worth all things for that matter, is greatly amplified, is closely related to the idea of "I am god". For if the self is god, then is not everything?

You are perceptive in pointing out the split perception of "I am god" that constitutes both satanism and the "good" spiritualities.

>>26388126
I did. Time is still necessitated. If I see one frame, then the next one after that, time had to have passed. Why is this so hard for you to understand?

I think that's close but not quite as specific as it should be. Imagine trying to explain this to somebody who has no clue. It's pointless to yell 'Bankers! Bilderbergers! luciferians! Jews!!" at them while flailing your hands around. As you probably know, you have to really prove yourself to be sane before you can even talk about things.
I'm not acting like I know the entire truth but what I'm saying is that while you're not exactly wrong, it is better to say well, WHO exactly is in those groups specifically and what they actually did and how. Anything else is really just crawling down intentionally placed rabbit holes and chasing your tail pretty much.

The only way is to make your own candy from scratch, but even then you derive your ingredients from SOMEWHERE. Certainty always rests on uncertainty. Sp00ked as shit. Gotta get off this earth.
>>
>>26389031
You're right. But you can't leave the earth.
So either take the risk and enjoy the candy, make it yourself or don't eat it at all.
Getting more towards reality and out of the land of metaphor, a blowpop isn't going to kill you and the point here is to be skeptical about information (the candy) presented to you. Like they say, a good lie is hidden under truth so it's up to you to find that needle in the haystack, pluck it out so you don't become the victim of a lie
>>
>>26389133
Not if the blowpop is poisoned m8
I had a jolly rancher once that was actually just homemade candy mixed with MDMA in a wrapper
I had no idea
Never take candy from strangers
>>
>>26389168
you took a risk and paid a price
you're not dead though
if you really wanted to get nitpicky about this, you could argue that in a different path, you could have brought the candy home, inspected it, tested it to verify it was indeed just candy before you ate it without thinking about it.

All visualizations are imagination.
All imagination is appearance/emptiness.
Without being attached to appearance/emptiness as real,
rest without fixation, without focus.

Death and no death, these are also imagined.
In the expanse of equality, there's neither death nor no death.
The same with dark and light and gods and demons.
The expanse of equality is all there is.
I have never seen a single thing that's real.
>>
>>26389207
No I'm not dead
But I had a lot of fun
Shit, maybe you SHOULD take candy from strangers
>>
>>26389275
>what is matter?
>>
>>26389275
We need to refine our imagination, compadre
I kind of like this one, actually
But it has many flaws
>>
>>26389296
Just be careful and stay safe, anon. Don't get into trouble.
>>
>>26389317
You're right
Maybe I should only take candy from people I know...
And give them candy back? <3
>>
>>26389327
You could be the stranger giving out candy to everyone
>>
>>26389275
Stop posting this here
Robots won't understand
You can't understand the meanings of these things without the proper preliminary experiences and initiations that come with them
Without proper understanding, it's easy to build up a 'wrong view' and that is more harmful to the mind than being unaware of these things
>>
>>26389345
How about you explain like in a sort of trail of candies approach to understanding?
>>
>>26388259
I hate fucking druggos who think they get fucking revelations and out of body experiences

I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that in such an impersonal space as an anonymous image board, without voice and other means of conveying ideas.

I also wouldn't feel comfortable teaching dharma without the permission of a Lama, because I'm not one myself, and I don't even know who I'm speaking to on here, and/or how to cater explanations to their own specific state of being.

Additionally, the karmic implications of throwing stuff like this out in the open are far too wide ranging and varying to really know if you're helping, or harming.

This is all just my personal experience though. If you're comfortable doing it, right on.
>>
>>26389343
But nobody would take it, because they know not to take candy from strangers
I wouldn't even poison it...
>>
>>26389345
But in these degenerate times, the message of the Vajra must be promulgated in some means. IDC what the Tibetans say, really. We have multiple traditions some much less secret than others, and moreover, the earliest Buddhist literature on these matters plainly states that the mantras and initiations in Saivism work just as well...I'd imagine other traditions can get in on this.

Let all who have eyes see.
>>
>>26389408
or maybe they would just like you did

>>26389411
see what? I'm interested in what you have to say but just cut to the chase instead of floating around "you're not ready yet for the uber secret" like >>26389407
>>
>>26389411
I see your point.

That makes sense.
>>
can anyone reach nirvana?
>>
>>26389441
Well they shouldn't have!
What if I had poisoned it?
>>
>>26389481
Then you would be a bad person!

>>26389465
I highly doubt it

What is necessary to reach it?

Then it's a good thing I never intentionally will

I should really wait and make sure I don't make any mistakes in the candymaking process before I go around passing my goods out all willy-nilly. They probably won't be poisoned but what if their taste ends up being sub-par? I'm way too insecure for that shit. I want it to be top notch.
>>
>>26389562
go fly out into space flapping your arms then
>>26389601
just be careful where you get your ingredients from :^)

>>26389561
i guess you have no intention to discuss
>>
>>26389465
i believe that true nirvana is inevitable, and we reach it just by existing, although buddhism is the path to walk if you want to break free from the cycle of suffering and desire that is life.
>>
>>26389693
Like, what do you want to know?

I just gave you basic reading material/practices in two or three Buddhist and Savist tantric traditions.

there will be nowhere else to go

>>26389741
I think the idea is that you stop looking for places to go
You don't really go anywhere
>>
>>26389465
No.
The idea of nirvana being separate from samsara is another false duality.
They are one and the same.

You don't go anywhere.

You end up here, on /r9k/.
>>
>>26389728
Well, the whole topic of this thread is truth
Buddhists love to go on about life and death but that's only like one side of it. It ignores pretty much everything that is happening in reality.
Flipping through that last book, it mentions things like "reaching the truth through intuition"
my point being how could you reach any truth like understanding physics with just intuition? It's impossible which brings me to believe that it's all just empty rhetoric
>>
>>26389786
>>26389766
>>26389765
that is really comforting tho
>>
>>26389788
First, I'm not a Buddhist.

I'd tend to agree with your criticism of Buddhism in general. Hence why I'm not a Buddhist. Particularly of the Tibetan or Newar stripe. They get caught up in Buddhaforms and forgot to do what the Jains are doing.

>how can you reach understanding in physics with just intuition.
I dunno, ask Newton. Ask Einstein. Or anyone working rigorous thought experiments. It's not impossible, simply frowned upon as armchair speculation until it gets into the lab.
>>
>>26389806
it is
nirvana literally means "becoming extinguished"
it's the end of the book, and all loose ends are tied up. you don't have to do anything anymore.

that is your feeble brains perception.
it is the vastly abstracted, basically retarded hallucinations, idea a few of your organs tell your brain is going on and form into a single conglomerate.
i cant tell if this is bait or you really dont understand how to think
either way 2/10 you should not breed

>>26389788
>it's impossible
Are you actually telling me you believe it's impossible to know the truth of your reality through your own experiences?

You do know that apples come in red and green colors, yes?
>>
>>26389866
>ask Newton. Ask Einstein
They're dead
I think the difference is that they used intuition/imagination/creativity to expand on science with empirical evidence and whatnot. I feel like buddhists tend to just talk about the philosophical aspect of "letting go and trusting your intuition" in the sense of knowing the truth about the universe innately
>>
>>26389895
but it is really getting extinguished or becoming part of something greater?
If you reach nirvana in the middle of your life will you immediately be removed from this plane?
>>
>>26389940
While I buy that Vajrayana in and of itself will produce Attainment, I simply don't buy the claim that it's the fastest, easiest, or the best.

As I said, we have multiple concurrent traditions of tantra even across religions. Early Saivists and Buddhists were exchanging ideas and practices heavily, in like, what, 6-7th C. ce?

Anyway, just off topic question, anyone find it odd that there IS tantric material in the Agamas of Hinduism but NOT in the Agamas of Buddhism? Just seems odd to me.
>>
>>26389987
No, I'm saying that it is impossible to know the truth about anything without evidence. Anybody can tell you they've experienced the truth of reality in the universe but couldn't tell you the first thing about what the sun is made from. So they're not exactly wrong but it's just useless to say.
>>
>>26389988
I feel like they're experimenters. That's what a chain of initiation is all about. "Here, replicate X, Y, Z and see if you get result A."

I just think they over philosophize and often miss the forest for the trees. Honestly, I've had a consistiently hard time wrapping my head around Vajrayana compared to other tantric systems so don't let my facile grasp poison your well of perception.
>>
>>26389989
you can't reach nirvana in the middle of your life, it isn't like that
nirvana happens after everything else does
>>
lol bunch of retards
>>
>>26390053
Lol
That's funny
If you reach nirvana in the middle of your life, then it never really was the middle of your life to begin with, was it?
>>
>>26390053
I thought nirvana was reached through meditation
>>
>>26390043
>I just think they over philosophize and often miss the forest for the trees.
this
I think the whole becoming less egotistical part is useful in it's own way but following that road eventually leads to stagnation.
The answers it brings might make people feel good and help with mental issues and all but it doesn't have all the answers.
>>
>>26390053
nirvana is a state of being not something you find in the future
it is always achieved by accepting the now
that's really it but it makes you really calm and peaceful that's why they call it liberation
>>
>>26390118
nihilism is the true answer
live however the fuck you want
there is no model anyway
but I can't bring myself to believe it
Idk
Consciousness is so odd
unexplainable
quantical
I can't explain it (nor anyone)
>>
>>26390166
It's simply not the answer to everything
Sure, in the end you die but if you were to take that stance when tackling every problem, you'd get nowhere except probably hedonistic activities (which doesn't really matter because nothing does in the end right?)
You can't really learn anything about science by being nihilistic or accepting any ideology really.
>>
>>26390118
FWIW early material seems to do it best without leaning on Buddhaforms; it's much more like Jainism but with slightly less metaphysics and more parable. Then as Buddhism became politicized, it became a behemoth.

I feel like 9/10ths of the benefits in terms of "mental health" are a side effect of devotion itself rather than devotion to Makakala, or Buddha, or Avalokitesvara, or Kali.
>>
>>26390007
Yeah, I'm finding a lot of the Tibetan social structure to be bullshit lately.

It's caused me to kind of lose interest in my faith.

I feel lost, and I don't know where to go.

I'm still Buddhist, but, to what extent and how, I am confused about that.
