Re: Milgrams "obedience" & The Stanford Prisoner Experiment

if we could only make adequate sense of a bunch of blond Lutheran boys exterminating 6 million Jews or the godliest nation on the planet(America) unleashing thermo-nuclear destruction on civilians in two Japanese cities or certain intelligence agencies considering the loss of several thousand stock ...

Re: Joseph Campbell's Interpretation of the Garden of Eden M

I may be getting slightly off-topic here, but here goes. Finding uses for those teachings contained in Bible Stories(I think there are a large percentage of thoughtful readers who will agree that the authorship was motivated by a desire to teach useful techniques) that directly relate to our problem...

Re: absence of self

I'm not sure where exactly you are getting this stuff; and you did not say. It sounds as if you too would benefit from a few hours spent looking into Terrence McKenna's ideas & his basis for such conclusions. Volition, Authority & Extra-terrestrial sources of intelligence is exactly what the Holy Bi...

Re: Proof of Double-Mindedness?

I plan to read what you have posted & courteously provided for us a convenient link; but since you have introduced music into the discussion I'll jump at the topic unarmed. Humans (troglodytic or not) respond emotionally to music whether paying attention to it or not. This is partially because there...

Re: Bicameral Breakdown

I'm seeing on the telly pictures of an asteroid that has passed by the earth a mere 200,000 miles out; an incident that coincides mysteriously with the NASA launch of two payloads purported to be gravitational field analysis equipment bound for lunar insertion; we are kept in the dark for a reason:t...

Re: The Book of I Samuel

Just because you have agreed that 1 Sam is a tragedy, there's no justification to dwell on some suicide question, and not go straight to Chapter 3, where we find exactly what any Jaynesian researcher loves to cut his bicameral teeth on; NO?

Re: Double-Mind

Turn to the first chapter of the Book of James and read verse 8. James (or the actual writer of this N.T. scripture, while not a modern psychologist, expends the entire first chapter in explanation, not of the 'voices' problem of bicameral man, but of the usage of these Christian beliefs as an effec...

Re: NHI?

Couldn't find the bracket to close it. 2,000,000 yrs refers to the cranial mass necessary, but at some point[?] our language reached a complexity(long before some pioneer bureaucrat said "Let's write this stuff down!") that began to command the mind's attention to the exclusion of certain stimuli th...

Re: NHI?

So Rollo, I guess 'where' we take this thread is towards what it is that our participants understand about facilitating access to this intelligence; or better ideas; or just enough awareness to ask better questions; and, to stay on point, just what CAN be found in Jaynes that helps point the way(not...

Re: Gurdjieff's Work in Relation to Jaynes'

The writing project 'hinted at' in the original post has morphed/is morphing into something quite un-intentioned.

See what is developing in the now at http://www.plinky.com/answers/171139 ; perhaps there is a journey waiting for you.

Sorry Joe, but it is my hope that the moderator will move this 'comment' off into its own very hard to locate position on the boards(along with this COMMENT commentary).

When I decided to order William Patrick Patterson's Ladies of the Rope through the Inter-library Loan program, and then was forced to find something to do while awaiting its arrival from Louisville, KY, was when I started to write about G. I. Gurdjieff. I had just re-read Meetings with Remarkable Me...
