pursuing consciousness


There are two major assumptions in this book ...
  1. that there is such a thing as absolute truth that a person can know
  2. that a person must always defend their self

both of those sentences can be better expressed and when i get a chance i can provide exact quotes.

Neither of those two assumptions do i accept. 

Because those assumptions underlie most of the material, i find myself having to factor out the assumptions from the other materials he is presenting.   None the less i noticed that i got some good reactions from reading the book,  and even some interesting experiences,  and will probably continue to the end.

All i tell you is that I try  to make what I say match what I think is true ... and that i edit it, if i can, to make it even a better match.  That is in stark contrast to what you say which seems to me to be so scrambled as to be useless to think within.

My announcement does not show the same arrogance as a person who implies that one can know absolute truth ... although, yes, PR admits that it cannot be said or even represented.   As far as i can tell, based upon what he sys aboout it, it is just absolute certainty ... felt inside a person.  I got close to that numerous times in my life, didn't like it because there was no way to use it in the world.  Except of course the way PR is using it, trying to sell access to it ... i mean people really do like that kind of drug.
