The purpose of this posting is to inspire other postings based on the questions asked here.
Being curious can be a lot of fun, and if you are a cat, so the saying goes, it can get you killed.
Life doesn't ever seem to give solid, pat answers, rather there is a multiplicity of questions.
So I would like to throw a few out there and see if there are any other questions.
So with that there is a ground rule to this. When you reply it can only be with a question about something that you are curious about.
Here are some questions that I have to help seed some discussions:
So the first question is in regards to time. This isn't so much about what time is, but what it could be. We generally assume that time is a linear or causally dependent function where things happen in sequence. What other ways are there that time could work?
People are funny. For example in experiment after experiment it has been proven that cooperation is pretty much always the best strategy. If that is the case then why is cheating so prevalent?
Why do people get writer's block?
I've often wondered "is anything that I have to say that important?"
Why does everyone else seem so much smarter?
Will I live to see my mind uploaded?
Will I live to see a better mind downloaded?
On a smaller scale, and kind of back to this site, I wonder when and how the basis for the Stanzas and the Voice of the Silence will be found? Will they be in a set of a very few documents or scattered among many works?
Will I live to see a gathering of all of the major esoteric groups gathered together to learn and to apply their best minds to specific questions? I have this belief that while many people have individual pieces of 'the pie' it will only be through cooperation and mutual effort that many of the great puzzles of the age will approach solutions through practitioners bringing together the pieces of the spiritual Tower of Babel that has existed for so long.
How many new fields of esoteric study exist that didn't a hundred years ago?
What should we study that we don't now?
How many new religions could I create in a day? a week? a year?
Who would I like to sit down and have a really good chat with, one on one or as a group?
What do I need to know that I don't know now?
Will I open up this post tomorrow and feel bad for anything I asked? I'm sure I will because things usually look silly a short while after they are written, but tis what it is.
Those are a few of my questions. I would love to hear yours.
If you want to go start a discussion or write a blog based on any of these questions, whether posted by me or anyone else, by all means, go for it.
