the One are so few.
Okay, you lost me here. I thought there could be only one . . . One. You've pluralized a singular and now I'm doubly baffled.
And now all is One.
Oneness is truly All up to Oneself, up to You!
So if I'm One, who are You?
... aren't we still waiting for a very similar prediction of Hume's to be realized? ...
What prediction was that?
... that superstition and enthusiasm would wither away under the onslaught of reason ...
Sorry. I don't see any similarity between that and, "I can't imagine that there will exist any people who really believe in the truth.". Quite the contrary.
... maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to me that BrightNoon was implying that belief in "the truth" is more or less a superstitious belief ...
"One thing at least is that you, if you are reading this and thinking about it and experiencing it, you exist. Your self. You exist, there can be no doubt about that."
Or so it seems, however, even this knowledge is not absolute. It's mathematically possible that we could all be in 'The Matrix' or some other artificial reality and/or metaphysical reality and all these thoughts are merely the musings of someone else.
I don't believe that, but it's mathematically possible. =)
...we most certainly do not exist in the MATTER OF SUBSTANCE...the entire UNIVERSE is nothing but PHENOMENON...never has a particle or wave been captured in a specific space or time...we do not EXIST...simple...
Could be. But why would anyone think that? Isn't it true that Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun, or that Germany is in Europe?
... I think at this point you're getting into the difference between "The Truth" and "the truth about" that I posted earlier ... the truth about Germany is that it is in Europe; The Truth is that Germany and Europe are figments of human imagination ...
But I don't have any idea about any difference.
