That cult threw me out because I didn't pay my dues. Real tightwads.

Re: Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

What is happiness, and how can we all get some?
Biochemist turned Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard
says we can train our minds in habits of well-being
to generate a true sense of serenity and fulfillment.

Re: Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

Schrödinger's Bacteria? Physics Experiment Leads to 1st Entanglement of Living Organisms

...Look at yourself, then look at the person next to you. You're physically separate beings, right?

But quantum mechanics tell us that this doesn't have to be the case. Particles, or collections of particles, can become bound up in one another, "entangled" so that their waveforms are entwined. Neither particle can be understood or described without also describing the other. And measuring a physical trait of one particle "collapses" the waveform of both particles. Separate the particles by thousands of miles, and you could still instantaneously learn the physical state of one of them by measuring only the other one.

According to current quantum theory, there's no limit to this effect. What works for a proton should work for an elephant...

Re: Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

In which way are you adverse to materials, Cap?

Personally, I find that attachment to the finite, rather than just enjoyment of it, leads to the suffering so many experience. That inability to let go of that which we find pleasant is the issue. Not the "things" themselves, so to speak.

Re: Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

True.

Articles, quotes, and videos in this thread are purely for educational purposes. A lot of people on this planet still believe that they live in a Newtonian clockwork reality made of matter so this is my humble attempt to open their minds.

Re: Escape! From the Cult of Materialism

How someone who knows through HER OWN EXPERIENCE that SHE IS NOT THE BODY and that IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO NOT EXIST looks and talks.

Notice the smile, notice the relief, liberating empowerment and understanding such experience can bring, although this is just scratching the surface of true nature of reality and what one really is.

Sleep-dreaming proves we're not our physical bodies.

True. Still, the majority of beings think they are their body.

What is even harder to grasp is that consciousness is not in the body. It is the body that is in consciousness, together with all this what we call the Universe.

And what is really a tough nut to crack, impossible without direct experience, is that mind and ego are as much illusory as the body and this whole reality. So, to put simply, there is no person inhabiting a body.

And still, there is underlying beingness/nothingness (there is really no right word for this) that encompasses everything and can be experienced as one's own true nature/being.
