One step removed from reality

Postby jamesbath » Sun Jan 01, 2012 10:08 am

To know is to be one step removed from an intimate apprehension of reality. Why is this? Because thought is the copy of reality.
scire esse uno gradu distat a cognitione intima rerum. Quare hoc? Quia cogitatio est exemplar rerum.

The universe is in a high energy state of perpetual newness all the time. We live in and of this energy, in the only moment that ever is, the present. This is the pure innocent mind of our infancy. This is when we are dazzled and awed by everything we see.

Then we learn to think. And after that, we get lost in our thoughts. This is where we invent the concept of time and separation.
Universitas in statu strenuo virtute​ novitatis perpetuae semper est. habitamus in hoc uis, in quo solo semper, nunc. Haec mens nostrae infantiae puram est. Quod est cum fascinati sunt per omne videmus.
Deinde discimus cogitare.​ Deinde cogitationes nostrae nobis confundunt. Ubi est temporis conceptum fingunt et separationem.

"To know is to be one step removed from an intimate apprehension of reality. "
Wrong!!!!
To know implies that there is something to know, which then implies that that something exists which implies that there is existance which implies reality.

"Because thought is the copy of reality."
Wrong Again!!!
Thought is only a copy of reality when you don't think!
Reality should cause us to think, if not we are robots incapable of interperting what we see around us, understanding those things and then utilizing those thoughts to help us live in reality.

"This is where we invent the concept of time and separation."
WE did not invent time, we only record it.

The only separation I see here is that of your thoughts from what exists.
