I will argue in this post that this philosophy is more coherent than Advaita.
Dvaita asserts that this universe is real and distinct from God and is not an illusion. This is consistent with all modern scientific knowledge.
Dvaita asserts that the supreme being is distinct from this universe and humankind. I see this as a Kantian view also–that we are not the thing in itself (and can’t know it). This is consistent with Deism, various schools within Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
I do believe this philosophy is consistent with panentheism, too, as long as we agree to concede that God is thoroughly transcendent as well as being immanent to the universe.
On a personal level, this philosophy is also consistent with my Christian Gnosticism. I’ve walked this path which I’ll link from the Dvaita wiki page. I choose a path of physical labor (karma yoga); 40-years of layman spiritual study–jnana yoga; and bhakti as I’ve been unequivocal in my search for truth.
From the Wiki:
‘combination of dispassionate discharge of one’s duties (Karma Yoga), acquisition of scriptural knowledge (Jnana Yoga) and the unconditional devotion to the higher entity (Bhakti Yoga).’
This view, from my perspective, honors both the scientific worldview and the spiritual worldview while maintaining clear delineations between who is who and what is what. I would still say this place is fallen and in disrepair and Christian Gnostic cosmologies explore possibilities about why that is.
Here is the Wiki on the 5-distinctions or reality within this tradition.
- Between the individual souls (or jīvātman) and God (Brahmātmeśvara or Vishnu).
- Between matter (inanimate, insentient) and God.
- Between individual souls (jīvātman)
- Between matter and jīvatman.
- Between various types of matter.
At a minimum, we should concede, like I always suggest, to take a step back from our spiritual attachments and consider that things may not be a given here.
Speculative metaphysics in the only justifiable framing of spirituality today.
I’ll link the video here of Erich telling his life story in a short documentary.
As a kid, I remember thinking how cool is that! I wasn’t indoctrinated (mind-controlled) into religion as a kid so it was fairly easy for me to think that way. The ideas espoused didn’t stir me into academia or anything, but the doc. definitely registered and stayed with me as I traversed my life’s journey.
In later years, I did research my favorite topic, The Nephilim Theory quite deeply and certainly, his work came to mind; as did Stitchen’s. I’ve come to my own thoughts on these issues which align with a neo-gnostic (pun intended) view of this phenomenon. I’ll link one of my blog posts here in that regard.
As speculation, I’m in the camp which thinks we might be dealing with both E.T. type aliens and interdimensional spiritual beings, but I don’t know…it’s just my feelings and intuitions. As a good skeptic, too, I’m aware that no one can or is able to prove their claims–everyone is speculating, but very few will be forthright in conceding this fact.
In the comment section of Erich’s post the Flat Earther’s show up and I’ll copy one of the comments below. I’ve done my own research in that regard and believe the official stories about the earth although I still concede there is a minuscule chance someone is right in that camp. There are a whole plethora of flat earth cosmologies out there and this guys is a doozy! He talks about different root races created via different epochs and at the center at Mt. Meru (A Hindu Creation Myth) live the first ghostly like creator beings. Much of the lingo sounds like The Urantia Book and that’s a red flag as the archons love using bullshit tropes! I’ve suggested they pretty well bullshit about everything which is different from the scope of lying it would take for the earth to be flat.
At any rate, here is this guys comment and cosmology. The internet has made it so that everyone now gets to offer up their own personal cosmological theories!
This one is for the millions and millions of homeless.
Thanks to Cosmic Pig Studios for engineering and production.
About 100,000 people live homeless in the greater Los Angeles area and the Nobel Peace folks just gave two environmental scientists a prize! One has to have a high tolerance for cognitive dissonance, uncertainty, and paradox to live today. Yikes!
That’s Jordan Hall yakking about the Noumena.
I get that this is going to sound weird! Let me first start by saying that the city I live in was evil by my intuitive standards long before 911, and long before the greed of neo-liberal policy which took over here in the 80’s, and long before mass immigration for corporations, banks, and Israel. One would have to explore the meaning and symbolism of the provincial architecture built about 100-years ago to see that whatever is going on here goes back a long way. I would say, however, that this place was much less evil and freer prior to 1985 and the takeover by the neo-liberal banksters around that time. And no, Trump’s policies are no solution to this evil as evil cannot and never will stop evil. Do you hear that people?
At any rate, I lived more or less out of the system for ten years between ’79 and ’89 and my life took a turn into high strangeness come the 90’s which was about the time I made an adjustment back into ‘status-quo society’. What I’m about to describe did not happen until I got a cell phone in 1998 although there were other strange things that happened which I won’t get into at this time. I should say that it wasn’t like these things happened and I immediately knew and registered cognitively what was happening. No, it wasn’t like that; in fact, it took me nearly 7-years of experiencing it and contemplating what was happening before I became sure that what was happening wasn’t just random chance and coincidence.
Of course, being able to research using the internet and delving deep via computer technology investigating 911 for 3-years (2005/8)helped me come to these conclusions. Yes, the official story of 911 is how shall we say? Bullocks!
I love to yak about philosophy, politics, and religion and never had any weird experiences in that regard until I purchased my first cell phone in 1998. It wasn’t long after that that I began to register emergency vehicle sirens buzzing my vicinity when I got to talking about controversial subjects with whoever and wherever. Again, for the first 5-years or so I didn’t know what to make of it and kind of just filed it away as coincidence until Sept 11, 2001. On that day I KNEW what was happening to me wasn’t random! But, it still took 4-more years for me to be convinced that it was targeted behavior and in part that was due to my diligence in researching 911.
They buzzed me near head-on this morning shortly after a comment I made on my Steemit blog. Last year was by far the most intense. I had a friend show up and stay with me and he brought a guest with him. This person claimed ‘it’ was one of the people involved in a cosmic drama nearly 2000-years ago. I’m a natural born skeptic so I listen and don’t make a judgment without considerable contemplation. Needless to say, I’ve never experienced so much emergency sirens in my life and in 1-hour of one particular walk it may have well been WWW-3! Not only that but this particular visit garnered me 2-phone calls from people I hadn’t heard from in some time and the reasons they called were obviously B.S. and I had always suspected these two particular people were involved with Masonry. They haven’t called me since.
My take on this? The Demiurge has no supernatural ability but it is a technological genius due to the diligence of the Archons. The all-seeing eye is symbolic of this technological mass-surveillance and mass-profiling civilization. Judaism and secular Judaism (Freemasonry) are heavily invested in this phenomenon and are in the process of bringing in the ‘order of the ages’! Of course, I believe this will all culminate with the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem and the advent of the Jewish Messiah. Civilization may get The Noahide Laws thrown in just for the fun of it all!
What this post implies is that there is a massive worldwide allegiance of certain groups and people who have an esoteric agenda for the earth and its people. My own unprovable intuitions and feelings on this are that humanity is not dealing strictly with humanity–there are other non-human agents involved and they are sophisticatedly organized over a long period of time. I can only say for certain that the Inuit are not the culprits in this regard! I also don’t recommend histrionics as a reaction to all these shenanigans; breathe deeply and trust the ‘one core truth’ of all existence if there is such a thing, and I believe there is but any such notion is speculative…
This isn’t the first time I’ve ranted on this topic but I feel it necessary once again.
In the western philosophical tradition, there was a general acceptance that what philosophers were espousing was somewhat speculative. This isn’t to say that any individual philosopher didn’t adamantly believe their metaphysics. By the 20th century, however, some materialist philosophers had had enough of the nonsense and formed the Analytical School of Philosophy. I don’t necessarily cohere with this school but I thoroughly understand the ethics behind such a move.
Alas, our good brothers (and a few sisters) in the east never felt the necessity to adopt this move and continue to promote Hinduism as it’s just an obvious fact! Nevermind that no one in that tradition has been able to demonstrate any kind of paranormal or supernatural phenomenon. No levitation; no walking on water(that’s a cheap parlor trick according to the Vedantist); no healing the sick; no raising the dead; notta; nothing, not at all, and this juxtaposed to endless hubris claims about the nature of reality.
Interestingly enough, and just by coincidence, these religious authorities set themselves up at the top of the societal pyramid while declaring those in the gutter were there as a consequence of something they did in a past life! It’s hard to imagine a society based on more irrationality than that! Instituting a lifetime of pain and misery premised on ghost stories! I won’t get into how irrational it is to assert this is a school when one’s memory is wiped at birth because if that’s the school then the headmaster is a lunatic! Imagine showing up at university and having your memory wiped of all your earlier education! This one example should illustrate how backward this idea is.
Again, though, if one could demonstrate something, anything, that could justify belief and societal structure based on said belief then it might be tolerable, but no one, as far as I can tell, can prove anything beyond the ordinary. This isn’t to say that there are not some incredible flexible people within that tradition but flexibility proves nothing and secular sports athleticism is just as efficacious as yoga without the metaphysical baggage. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the Hindu tradition in some regards and it’s a rich and beautiful history from certain perspectives, and I would never begrudge anyone their religious proclivities on a rock that’s tough to live on and doesn’t yield easy answers to the question of why, but come on; enough is enough–frame your spirituality as speculative!
Look, I get that this gets entwined with unanswered questions about Idealism and whether consciousness precedes matter, and whether panpsychism is real; these are things I tend to believe myself but it isn’t certain, we spiritualists could be wrong! And on the spiritual side of the fence God could be an alien and in fact, that idea is more coherent than most religious doctrines. And just a last point on Randal Carlson and what seems like intelligent design via complex recurring geometry: even if we concede this phenomenon as real it tells us absolutely nothing about the character of God or the Gods!
I first came across Carlson on Joe Rogan’s podcast where he was with Graham Hancock and Michael Shermer. So it’s not the first time I’ve come across his work.
Please watch the video linked here.
It is possible that all these recurring numbers are a coincidence and he’s reading in his bias’ and concluding ideas based on faulty reasoning. That is possible.
But on this site, we deconstruct the claims as believed. I’ll list some ideas presented and comment.
-hypothetically, conceding that these are not random coincidences, it still wouldn’t tell us anything about who knew about this knowledge. It’s a faulty assumption to say, God, when it’s just as likely aliens. And even if it were ‘God’ it would tell us absolutely nothing about the character of this God. These cosmic coincidences are just as likely the result of malevolent beings based on the brutality of our existential condition so to assume benevolence here is an unwarranted act of faith. Now I’m not saying it isn’t a benevolent God but that really isn’t consistent thinking when one considers multiple factors like life having to eat life to survive; the brutality of evolution; and just how brutal cosmic conditions are out there when it comes to life’s survivability. Yet, his conclusions say our situation isn’t random.
-it’s highly unlikely this knowledge and these structures were built by humans of any given time in the past and more likely this is all the work of some other life form. There just isn’t much evidence for humans during these archaic ages being able to pull this off. Of course, the problem here also is that there isn’t any evidence of any higher life forms either so we’re left with 100% metaphysical speculation. That leads us to the lunacy of the worlds written religious traditions which are all internally and comparatively contradictory. This fact really doesn’t help us at all in solving this mystery.
-any God claims need be premised on reason and logic otherwise we couldn’t really deduce the truth about anything so if there is something to the Torah, Bible, Koran with this phenomenon it can’t be the literal words as written; as again, they are all contradictory along with most of the basic tenets of faith being irrational and illogical. It’s just as likely these books are the works of malevolent beings which are, in my opinion, manipulating humanity and that seems more consistent with the facts. So we have someone who had advanced astronomical knowledge in the past who seem to have written contradictory irrational and illogical religious books. Another coincidence here is that most of humanity tends to end up slaves to an EL-ite class of predators over and over again.
-there is no outward display of any supernatural phenomenon anywhere on the earth in recent history. No one is levitating; no one is walking on water or walking through walls; no one can defy the laws of physics, etc., etc., etc. This certainly doesn’t help in solving this mystery and would logically point to the alien hypothesis if my reasoning isn’t faulty although I’ve mentioned before that God, if it existed, could have called a ‘time-out’ on all supernatural manifestations but even that wouldn’t alter the irrationality and illogic of normative religion. But there is one religion which is consistent with all this phenomenon and that is Gnosticism. Carlson mentions Kabbalah often but it’s not the only type of Gnosticism. I’d agree with him that Gnosticism best explains all this if it were more than coincidence but that still leaves us trying to figure out which version of Gnosticism is the correct one.
-is this place controlled and owned by malevolent entities? And does it get destroyed over and over? Perhaps at the midway cycle of the great year as the powers that be who guard the rest of the universe can never allow the controlling archons out of this place as they are evil and irredeemable and humanity may very well be their creation and we may also be trapped here. If that were true some of us might be living a recurring hell. It isn’t at all clear to me how any given human can escape this condition but it might have something to do with being able to turn this body into a light body. But that’s speculation although premised on ideas like the transfiguration story(minus the baggage/nonsense of sin/sacrifice and atonement) and the Buddhist Rainbow Body phenomenon.
