    (Ponderings from my personal notes after listening to this interview. I do not have the language available to me like Amit Goswami does.)

    Public (external)/Private (internal) is scientific dualism, but perhaps […]

    I believe you that your words are alive. I am grateful for your presence!

    I am no expert, so I’ll just share with you two favorites of mine.

    Directly related to your question about quantum physics for a non-physicist is the very user friendly “Space-Time, And Beyond” by Bob Toben and Fred Alan Wolfe http://www.amazon.com/Space-Time-Beyond-Bob-Toben/dp/055326656X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1309968972&sr=8-1
    To me, this book…[Read more]

    I agree, Ganapati, that quantum mechanics does not posit the primacy of consciousness. Even though I am not a professor of quantum physics, my intuition questions that perhaps quantum mechanics cannot posit a primacy of consciousness, for “mechanics” can only deal with physicality (however small), and consciousness is a non-physical “entity.” I…[Read more]

    I too have seen that there is no way to logically or scientifically “prove” anything subjective. Yet as tempting as it is for this male mind to want to philosophize about intersubjectivity, I agree that “proving it” to oneself is the only way. In other words, “walking the talk.”

    In the spirit of “the sharing of subjective states” and in this…[Read more]

    • We do find that spiritual traditions agree on ‘subjective’ experiences. Take a look at the drawings and charts of different traditions, and it is almost shocking that one finds the same inner plane. It just takes time spent inside. Vital energy isn’t subjective. Feelings are subjective. The words, the emotion we attach to a vital energy state is…[Read more]

    Thank you for broadening my horizons Maythawe Lertrattana. I looked this up on Wkipedia: “Thomas Scheff defines intersubjectivity as “the sharing of subjective states by two or more individuals.” Wonderful! Sounds like a definition for this very group.

    In reply to - Mark Smith posted an update in the group Physics Of The Soul: Can something so subjective and personal, such as dying, actually be “proven?” Is “to prove” an aspect of and for the objective world only? · View

    Can something so subjective and personal, such as dying, actually be “proven?” Is “to prove” an aspect of and for the objective world only?

    • Dear Mr.Smith,

      My best friend said “the answer is intersubjectivity”.

    I appreciate these very wise words! Thank you! I am grateful for your presence. Perhaps a little signal-less communication is happening right now for as I woke up this morning I was thinking of how wise your words are Helen. Then I picked up some spiritual literature that said, “The wisdom of God (or Wholeness) lives within me.” It went on…[Read more]

    Hi Ri! Just joined. I see how to add photos/videos/links, but not docs.
    And, it looks like I can add things to a new post, but not on a reply to an old post. Is this correct, or am I missing something?

    Got it. Thanks for the clarification with the word “uncaused.” Yes, true unconditional love (of which my conscious mind knows little of) is natural – thankfully! It is of nature, an “absolute truth.” It is a reason to me why we are quantum activists. What you are saying reminds me of A Course in Miracles, “miracles are natural.” And certainly,…[Read more]

    Amit Goswami – “True love is a signal-less communication; it does not require any signals.”

    • From my point of view, signal-less communication doesn’t seem to require love, but its does require clear intention, and practice. On the other hand, to perceive or realize God consciousness does seem to require unconditional love. I’m just speaking from my own experience, and so I could be wrong. Although so far, I haven’t found anybody else’…[Read more]

      • i have been the recipient of extreme unconditional love and it changed me, as i said God consciousness showed me a face and she was pretty and beautiful as her(him for females i presume) intention is Beautiful, what respect I have, but hate when i’m suffering because I give her credit for everything and i can’t understand what pain is for and the…[Read more]

    Well said Mark! Just joined. “Signal-less communication can take place between you and me when we have true love between us. True love is a signal-less communication; it does not require any signals.” Then you say Mark, “I would say we DO have true love between us, in that it’s just the way things are…” I applaud your idealism, but are you…[Read more]

    “Some people fear unconditional love because it requires tolerance and commitment.” Quilty! Even though I wholeheartedly believe in unconditional love, to be honest the jury is still out within me, for it is just a concept in the (my) mind, love it as I do. Even though I am in the process of learning to let go of trying to control things (ego) and…[Read more]
