PS: In spite of your knee jerk reaction my treatment of
'Realization' deals not with 'New Age' type nonsense but mainly with
serious insights on how to directly experience reality as it
actually is such as:
1. The fundamental experience of our existence, our consciousness
within a present moment through which clock time flows and events
happen, is the direct experience of the continuing extension of the
radial P-time dimension of our 4-dimensional hyperspherical
universe. Our fundamental personal experience is our direct
experience of the fundamental cosmological process.
2. It is possible to directly experience that everything is its
information only. With understanding it becomes quite clear and
directly observable that for anything to be observed and experienced
it simply must consist of information. If it did not consist of
information it would not be observable. What we mistake for material
things in a physical universe are simply associations of different
kinds of pure information. For example what we normally think of as
material stone is actually an association of colors, feelings of
texture, resistance to motion, temperature etc. all of which are
actually just different types of information.
So it is very very clear that everything is its information only,
and that this can be directly experienced. In fact we all directly
experience this all the time already, we just don't realize that we
Things have no 'self-substances'. They are all pure information
whose only 'substance' is OE. This is a modern statement of the
ancient Vedic insight that 'all forms are empty'.
3. In my treatment of 'Realization' I also suggest that IF anyone
needs a God then the only rational definition is the universe itself
That is Aristotelian theology.
because then there is no doubt as to God's existence,
The UDA put some doubt an the ontological "existence" of the physical
universe (but not on the physical appearances, or on its
and his attributes then become a matter of scientific inquiry.
So Stephen, as you can see, my book is hardly the 'New Age' nonsense
your knee jerk reaction imagined...
It seems to me to be like an Aristotelian finitist theology. No
problem, but your reality has to be non Turing emulable, to avoid the
consequence of comp. In fact it needs to be not only non Turing
emulable, but also non FPI recoverable (FPI = first person
indeterminacy, see UDA step 3 for the detail).
I am just trying to make sense of what you say.
