Saturday Morning Talks: 5/24/14

Proclus, Theology of Plato, Alcibiades, Tibetan yoga, Buddhism, ousia, Thucydides.

“Proclus as a spiritual map – spot how far you have gone, progression, sufficient description that might help identify what one is encountering, dynamic aspect, energy that emerges, the idea of rest and motion.” “Buddhism in contrast to Proclus lacks analogy and hence metaphysics” “Analogy as activating ‘seeing’. With a series of analogy you can present them hierarchically.”

Saturday Morning Talks: 9/20/14

Jeff’s dream exploration. What is the mystery (of the dream)? Pathalogos. Problem of Ignorance.

“Not possible to not communicate a pathalogos. The parent does not know it is a pathalogos.”

“All observational statements, appear to be non-controversial, however, in the choice of the object you are going to describe empirically, you are already appointing a certain value of this over that… Pathalogos is a parental ‘truth’… The highest vision you have that you really believe you don’t know that you believe it… We are here to solve the problem of ignorance.”

Saturday Morning Talks: 11/08/14

Here’s the tape. The conversation was largely about whether empiricism is defensible. More interesting to me was the conversation at about the hour mark that turned around the idea that Platonic thought and those like it speak a different language based in experience of the brilliant light of being.
