I thought it be cool to ponder on, since we have the 'chicken or the egg' question... well we also have the 'is the mind the brain' question too..

Original title: Neuroscience can reveal mysteries of the mind

A post from Mark Stokes (Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity) all I did was correct the typo's…

Richard Ihle: Introduction to General Theosophy 1-100;



General Theosophy will be the last religion left standing on Earth, of course.

Thomas Jefferson once wrote to John Adams [April 11, 1823], "The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as his father, in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter."

Ditto, probably eventually, for all the miraculous…

Thoughts out of Context

I'm teetering between selfish love and transcendental love.

I'm afraid. 

I fear the direction I'm headed. I fear that all that I've ever known is about to be stripped away from me forever. What is the point of learning what we are inside, if the cost of this knowledge is eternal separation and alienation from what we once loved?

To be fair, I'm already separated from all the objects of my selfish love. Well, the one object. Forced to be separate from her. I've turned…

Reformed Vedic Calendar - based on Tropical (Sayana) Zodiac

'Today we are forced to celebrate all our fasts and festivals after over 23 days of their real Shastric prescribed time, and we continue to follow the wrong path over fourteen centuries. The Government of India’s 1952 Calendar Reforms Committee had recommended a seasonal calendar and also noted that “in continuing to follow the nirayana system, the Hindu…

EGYPT: The Gift of the Nile - A New Theory

I know that Egyptologists, academics and other intelligent people looking at the Egyptian culture and religious beliefs have a complete misunderstanding of what they are looking at.  I am an esoterist; therefore, I look at problems esoterically as well as exoterically.

My expertise lies in the study of the first chapter of Genesis esoterically: what this means is that every…

Contrarian Self-Help Psychology

Guarding the Temple of Truth there are two fierce figures named Paradox and Confusion.

Certain things might, at least temporarily and/or playfully, be called “Real Magic” when there are no immediate rational explanations for them. Nevertheless, there may be some other, “Theosophically inspired,” life-manipulating techniques which can be called “semi-Real Magic”—not because they don’t always work—they do, at least in my experience—; but rather, simply because one can perhaps think of…

What is the use of this Sutra , or why one should even try to understand this Sutra is a pertinent question here . Its importance is mainly in Knowledge meditation wherein we come to ''Know'' where we are located at a particular time in thought . An attempt is made to explain how it works .

Apart from the body , we are a mixed consciousness (or undifferentiated) of the mind, intellect , Memory and Ego (the empirical ). All these together as one are known as 'Chitta' or 'Chittam' in…
