ss,

That's a very concise and accurate description. Thank you.

So in short, minds are created by brains, which are physical objects functioning by (mostly) known processes, ergo the mind is controlled by physical processes and so is deterministic.

Energy is a metaphor - we do not need to save, conserve, balance, or worry about it. High entropy make you tired, not lack of energy. Be joyous and bountiful.

I'm sorry I can't make much of your post, jordantc - is that voice translation?

chronopolis, I think we can agree that manipulation being common is no excuse for doing it. That being said, you have to make the choices that are right for you, and while some advertising/marketing is manipulation, not all of it is. And, I think, while manipulation as a restriction of free will is ...

jordantc,

I'm not sure about this energy balance thing. It sounds like conservation of energy. Is this how you see it? I am not familiar with that idea, with respect to personal power/energy. Can you go into more detail on your experiences?

DrTechnical, There are rules in NPMR. What makes PMR particularly good is the in-your-face, do or die imperative - evolution is up close and personal. Letting PMR inhabitants see the larger reality is useful for helping them in a big-picture sense. The tempering of a PMR experience is a fast-track, ...

A question immediately comes to mind. You would think that it would take a high QoC to create or produce such excellent music. But Mozart was a nut case, and Beethoven was an unapologetic bastard. What shall we make of that??? Montana I don't think it's so much that these people are low entropy, bu...

Justin,

You've really got great talent (I would say 'gift', but I know how much work you've put into getting as good as you are).

kroeran, jordantc's bump brought this thread to my attention. I am with you on adopting/cultures: One of the most transformative times I've experienced has to do with going to Canada and the baggage I left behind in the US. I felt truly free and even considered moving, but I didn't want to run the r...

I fear, though, that I will find a portion of the 'living' to be operatively dead, though.
You don't need to worry about that unless you're one of the operatively dead ones.

Then... there is a way to tell! What could it be.....?????????? When you SEE their intent. From our normal PMR mode of awareness, I don't think we can know - perhaps with enough time, it would be possible to use deductive reasoning given the lack of positive consciousness evolution intrinsic in bei...

Montana, The "weak ego" isn't directly related to the notion of ego we discuss here. Considering the one you've brought up, we might say that a strong ego is good because it is aware, motivated, and energetic. I don't think the two ideas are the same. See the description of the opposite of...

I actually posted the wrong lecture - not that the first one isn't worth listening to, but this one is, possibly, a bit more on topic. This lecture is called "The Necessity of Virtue" and it may not dash expectations. http://www.tvo.org/TVOsites/WebObjects/TvoMicrosite.woa?bi?1295128800000

Also,

I've been away due to responsibilities, but I'm catching up and will be able to become a regular contributor again very soon. See you then.
