|"AE" must be an sound close to MichAEL's heart as when you spell the name its not as it sounds, it could be just that simple or not.|
If I take a lamp and shine it toward the wall, a bright spot will appear on the wall. The lamp is our search for truth, for understanding. Too often we assume that the light on the wall is God. But the light is not the goal of the search; it is the result of the search. The more intense the search, the brighter the light on the wall. The brighter the light on the wall, the greater the sense of revelation upon seeing it! Similarly, someone who does not search, who does not bring a lantern with him, sees nothing. What we perceive as God, is the byproduct of our search for God. It may simply be an appreciation of the light, pure and unblemished, not understanding that it comes from us. Sometimes we stand in front of the light and assume that we are the center of the universe. God looks astonishingly like we do! Or we turn to look at our shadow, and assume that all is darkness. If we allow ourselves to get in the way, we defeat the purpose; which is to use the light of our search to illuminate the wall in all its beauty - and in all its flaws. And in so doing better understand the world around us.
Sorry Milamber am I missing something here, why have you copied my post and adhered it to your somewhat off topic posting? as I can not see any relevant connection between the two can you?.
I do believe someone used this very same piece in a thread here some years back, did you copy it from that thread? if so can you please let me know which topic it was in as I can not find it again & its one I would like to review.
Although I can not understand why you have put this up here I do think it, in another content holds some very interesting ideas yet fails on some also in it's use here or in other areas where I see it is used far to loosely as an overall argument against the views of others. For instance it fails against held beliefs in a God, as in the end it is all a matter of ones faith! & blind faith needs no lamp.
Sadly I should point out that I DO NOT HAVE THE GIFT OF BLIND FAITH, either in a God or in there not being a God, do you Milamber? if so which?. Now if I read you right you will be surprised that I write this.
When it comes to the casting of shadows, or to put it another way the deletion of light placing shade upon a surface is this not where the duty of the mind takes over to see all the possible truths of that which the eyes have shown it, or should we all shut out the light and fumble around in the dark.
REMEMBER MILAMBER OMINOS THOUGHTLESS SILENCE OR WAS IT SCIENCE?. Something to OM on for a MO.
Whilst you are at it ask yourself what MO means when he says he is just a channel for music/sound & where do you think he thinks this sound originates from?.
I know what you think I need to know is in the end going to be your belief! yet have you ever considered you could be even a little bit slightly blind of mind do you really have the faith in yourself to think you are all knowing? & believe yourself to be the one that all should follow without question?.
I have seen that you have undertaken great works & have on occasions tried to declare to you that I have recognised these as such but this all appears to of been like water off a ducks back.
Hence I must now beg that you try to find room for others beliefs, and not go blindly making assumptions that I am searching for God here as I am a man of science like you would also appear to be & if so we should be together in our individual searches for truth not doing all one can to obscure the answer with shadowy doubt but using logic and reasoned opposition to things that one doubts to be of logic or truth.
If what I believe is right Mike is the man of God or dog here & the "I"'s are just here to see and hear what he shows us he believes in.
Lastly one for all people of science or belief if E=MC2 then here is the big one! is not the opposite/reverse also particularly so?. Now you can begin to see hopefully.
