Someday ...

Someday you fuckers will get the difference between an actual experience (expires in the NOW with each change in attention or something like that) & the description of an experience which , true is an experience of describing, & an abstract map or diagram or blog ABOUT the experience – which is a pile of words which merely leaves behind the best you could use your native languages to represent to ANOTHER what happened in the original experience you had.  Munging that all together is sloppy communication – hearsay at best to another  by the time someone else reads your blog. All the Ego and Ethos  involved does not cancel the fact that writing about something is not that something. The study of Zen & ontology helps make these distinctions, but if you insist in drawing diagrams of what you think is happening after the fact you are not really communicating – just being pedantic.


sorry null, my nows are not split seconds as you seem to describe yours to be.  
me, i love the longer ones … the longer and deeper and more connected the better null.

Didn’t say they were split seconds. Just how do you tell the difference between one an another.  I suggested your attention changes.  If you just munge everything together then you have missed the “NOW” experience.

From the wikipedia on Present

The present (or here and now) is the time that is associated with the events perceived directly and in the first time,[1] not as a recollection (perceived more than once) or a speculation (predicted, hypothesis, uncertain). It is a period of time between the past and the future, and can vary in meaning from being an instant to a day or longer. In radiocarbon dating, the "present" is defined as AD 1950.

It is sometimes represented as a hyperplane in space-time,[2] typically called "now", although modern physics demonstrates that such a hyperplane cannot be defined uniquely for observers in relative motion. The present may also be viewed as a duration (see specious present).[3][4]

It’s rather challenging, my friend, for those here who’ve never experienced time and space to actually grasp how formidable you sometimes think your illusions are, because, quite frankly, they see the world around you as just more you. 

Cool, huh?

Whatever that means nathan . RS has some interesting descriptions of the change between space & time near the midpoint between lives.

I am quite sure you know what it means. I am also quite sure you would not let me know that you know. null

Yep, it resembles innuendo that you need to toot your horn some more.  (sometimes your island must seem lonely to need to sound off as you do) Enjoy the #juice! null
