Re: Silly question...

Can you clarify what a thought is, for me? Of course I can, but I'm not an altruist. Here's something instead: https://youtu.be/BFBjY_Kj2ko By the way I trained with Dean Witter at the world trade center in NYC in 1995 as a series 7 licensed registered rep. I quit working as a broker in 2000 prior ...

Re: The Pirate Code

The 'evidence' of The Code shows itself with there being three distinct classes of individuals: Pirate Crew Captain A pirate is one who has no commitment on board ship, be they Passenger or Marauder. Crew are those who have committed themselves into a voluntary agreement with a Captain, who owns th...

Re: Stiegers law???

Doug, Here is an example of purpose fixation. https://youtu.be/c-GiWoDGhJM Being that I choose to live straight edge, no tobacco, no alcohol, no drugs, in chronic daily pain, performing heavy physical labor daily to avoid atrophy, I don't see common ground in rhetoric of "magical, autopilot, transmu...

Re: The Pirate Code

Reality is where conflicts manifest and through self-reflection of reality we can come to the cause of the conflict. Is that a fair statement? If faith is rejected, in all forms, is the universe dead? Do you know the difference between sophistry and philosophy? Philosopher means lover of truth. Sop...

Re: Silly question...

Is ego always dysfunctional? I would think an ego could be in a state of dysfunction, but it would have some purpose. Or is it like the tonsils, cut it out!!! Hahaha The ego is a biological mechanism of the mind. The ego is not real, but it wants to be real. Ego is just story, and can't be real. Eg...

Re: Silly question...

There is never dialogue (flow of meaning) between ego and true self, as true self arises as ego dies. Ego is always dysfunctional, collective ego is enhanced dysfunction. It appears the "habit" Doug's ego is identifying in story as "money", speaks to the concept of "Pain-body" explained by Eckhart T...

Re: Stiegers law???

I don't harbor any desires other than to actually start talking about all the affects of money, not just the ones wanting to be used to mold a crypto-currency. "Freedom isn't for all men, it's only for those who seek it. " - Ayn Rand Have you stated that you harbor no desire for freedom? If so perh...
