Dunno if the audience enjoyed my lecture because i wasn't as pushy as the other guys preaching their Druggie Anonymous dogma, or because the whole idea behind the Self/Non-self/True Self actually has a lot of basis behind it, especially when it comes to the ability to control desires and the ability to dissociate one's self from the collective ghost and somehow convince it to bless the mortal (morganna mode gone?), but still, not a bad day.

    In the end, it seems that, ironically, presenting the scientific and psychological logic behind religions, while removing all the their ritual and illogical side, might make anyone fall in love with them. Think i might try that more often, often christianity has a good side to it if one removes all the garbage. Even in Genesis, as Eve (the younger part of the lunar trinity) and Ouroboros point out to Adam that they shall be as gods for gaining knowledge, and have the caretaker allow them to walk among giants, now that they're giants themselves, has a good tricky bit of mind exercise behind it.

    Lawd, never thought i'd say this, but i'm so falling in love with myths, religions and archetypes... If the cake is a lie, pie (oh me!) is the truth, isn't it?
    There's no Ouroboros in Christian myth whatsoever, anywhere. The snake that tempted Eve was nameless and is pretty heavily implied to have been Satan (though I do remember hearing that was a later interpretation of the texts, nowadays it's included as a matter of course). The concept of Ouroboros- the snake biting its tail, symbolism for infinity and closed cycles, dates back somewhere in ancient Mesopotamia, I believe, and is mainly a symbol of occultism rather than any defined religion.
    And, for what it's worth... religions are inherently illogical, in my opinion. They're satisfying the basic need of the human animal after it developed reasoning to believe in a higher purpose or cause than day to day survival, be that a benevolent Creator watching over Its children from above or a completely abstract philosophy about attaining perfect inner peace. Psychology might (and indeed, does) have something to gain from observing and analysing its effects on people's mindsets, but science most likely does not.

    (insert old joke about psychology not being a science here)

    That's ignoring the historical utilitarian value of religions. Many holy books were basically instruction manuals on how to live life and not fuck it up, church was a way of drilling those lessons into illiterate heads, and all-powerful deities were a proverbial stick and carrot to motivate people to actually listen.

    Education is still not considered science, or is it?

    Point taken, though.

    Hah, I'm there in June!

    The last time I went was in August and the heat was intense. Hopefully Spring is a bit nicer.

    Not sure if I should make a whole new thread for this or not- and I don't really know how I'd formulate it in that case- but what are your thoughts on this?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_of_tolerance



    It's one of those "Simple at first glance" axioms, "Tolerance can only be extended so far when the threat of life or property arises", but it can have surprising implications if you think about it.

    I'll vote on a thread for it. One way or another, i'd like to hear your thoughts on this subject.
