Siddartha’s rainbow

■→IN POLISH

Every human being is god himself, but it does not understand its true self, and it is constantly engulfed by the influence of its mind, its intellect, which you call as a great illusion, says Vamsi Krishna.

We can view “The Awakening of a New Wave of Consciousness” on YouTube.

The sense of Mr. Vamsi’s words in English is that everybody is god, but nobody knows own true self or god part, because every person lives under own mind or brains, and these are illusions.

To children, a rainbow is something vivid and real; but the grown-ups know that it is merely an illusion caused by certain rays of light and drops of water, is a quote from Buddhist teaching to deny people have souls.[1]

■→Rainbows are physical phenomena, and to say a rainbow is real does not prove the human soul. But the real question here is how the thought comes to exist and be noticed, whether those would be some human minds or some rainbows to receive the name of illusions.

To consider ■→Anatta or another Buddhist belief with regard to perception, let us mind that entire collections of teachings were attributed to Siddhartha from reportedly a tradition that was ■→spoken, and ■→first committed to writing about 400 years after the Buddha’s death. The copies people have today are still younger and by no means ■→autographs by the Buddha or his disciples.

Even the Buddha’s language is uncertain, speculation pointing to Middle Indo-Aryan dialects and particularly ■→Pali. The time the writings emerged is not known. It might have been late Middle Ages, the ■→Middle Indo-Aryan period to have ended around 1500 after Christ.


■→Upanishadic concepts are worded today as,
□ All psycho-physical processes (skandhas) are impermanent;
□ If there were a self, it would be permanent;
□ If the self existed it would be the part of the person that performs the executive function, the “controller”;
□ The self could never desire that it be changed (“anti-reflexivity principle”);
□ Each of the five kinds of psycho-physical elements is such that one can desire that it be changed.
The Upanishadic conclusion is ― There is no self.

The question here proceeds from the one already asked:
Who is the one to tell the skandhas? Who is the one to want the self to be permanent and unchanged, to want control, and to desire that the skandhas might be altered?

A skandha means a heap, aggregate, collection, or grouping. In Aristotle by Taylor, a heap has place according to energy, homogeneous grouping to depend on capacity more. In Buddhism, the word heap refers to five aggregates, says ■→Wikipedia, that “constitute and completely explain mental and physical existence of sentient beings”.

These five Buddhist aggregates or heaps would be: (1) rupa, the form, matter, or body; (2) vedana, sensations or feelings received from form; (3) samjna, perceptions; (4) sankhara mental activity or formations; (5) vijnana, consciousness.

The two questions become very important, how thought comes to exist and be noticed, and who it is to tell the skandhas and to want them of quality. If there is nobody, if there is no one, then the thought as well as skandhas are only rumor. If there is somebody, if there is someone, there is a self.

It is only if there is a self that the skandhas can be true ideas and as such deserve discussion. A true idea needs to exist, to be. Let us consider the skandhas with regard to existence. ■→Vocabulary can be of help.

(1) The first skandha brings form, matter, and body under one term, rupa. If I carve a real word of whatever real language in wood, and then I also write it in ink or print it out, it remains the same bodily representation in form, and it becomes different bodily representations in material realization. The skandha already does not make an entity, and further, the word may not exist in another language.

(2) The second skandha generalizes human feeling and emotion into “sensations received from form”, vedana. Since the Buddhist form would make the same term with body and matter, a prod would be the same as a sentiment, and people might “have non-existent feelings”. Human living experience has it, aesthetic pleasure is not the same as ■→somesthesia, and it has been one of the most powerful motivating factors in human history and civilization.

(3) The third skandha separates perception, samjna, from (4) activity of own mind, sankhara, and (5) consciousness, vijnana. Without own mind and consciousness, human perception cannot function.

The word ■→gautama to mean also poison, the vocabulary is more than likely to bring juxtaposition into living contexts and language usage. We may compare the Spoken Sanskrit for ■→skandha, ■→rupa, ■→vedana, ■→samjna, ■→sankhara, ■→vijnana.

The word form “skandha” alone may bring senses such as a branch, a war, or specificity of evil as well as religion, skandhāpasmāra to mean a demon causing a particular disease, and skandhaşaşthīvrata to mean a particular religious observance.

As a concept, the first skandha fails with regard to phenomena, it makes a non-entity; the second skandha fails for a process, and the third for a function, rendering the remaining two inefficient isolates. Therefore, the skandhas are even especially incapable of “constituting and completely explaining mental and physical existence of sentient beings”. ■→Phenomenology may be of reference, as there is no point talking about people in the plural, if the paradigm is insufficient for the singular.

For a considerable part, religion is a human response to mortality. Early in life, we people get to know there is death in this world and the natural question emerges, if this life is to be all and everything one can experience of existence. Religion is a human matter. Teachings do not lay out on the cosmos or infinity any better than human knowledge has it.

This mortal reality does not offer any premise on life that would be non-material. Around here, anti-matter or dark matter, all is sort of matter, as you use nouns to talk about luminosity and wave lengths as well: there is no escape from the substantive, in this physical existence, feel welcome to my ■→Simple English Aristotle.

And no premise means no premise. There is no ground decisively to affirm, as well as decisively to deny, on a possibility for life after death. Religion is belief of choice. Nobody has ever returned from brain death, and to talk wisdom about people, we consider human beings as living entities, to make sense. Most people would allow some possibility for afterlife, as regarding oneself a kind of biological robot would not be really agreeable.

On the other hand, mortality is certain. Nobody is going to fail to die. There is no need to go mad about something to happen anyway and to everyone individually. A balanced belief will not try to claim without premise, or pressure for answers never gotten.

Alfred van den Bosch claims knowledge beyond human:
Love is the glue of the universe, he says.

David Icke says we all live as droplets in an ocean of consciousness; people around us are reflections on our feelings, and our basic feelings are fear or love.

And all it is, as everything else is, a choice. A choice between fear and love, says Mr. Icke.

The above would be a book classic for the bipolar disorder, but mental care has been spotted for political involvement. Therefore, literature would be the neutral ground to let note that Mr. Icke is most likely the first Briton to claim that Shakespeare would not make it even for a fish pond.

The fear is a lack of being all powerful. Being anything less than an infinite love, puts us into a state of fear, says George Neo.

Acintya Govinda Das, an Australian Vedic historian, explains how the Earth continues to transition through Iron, Bronze, Silver, and Golden cycles:
In the Silver time, evil lives over the ocean. In the Golden, evil goes to live on another planet, and people get a lot of that Gold.

The story of metal times is reminiscent of the ■→edict of expulsion, by English king Edward I. Evil living in people might be your metaphor, if you are ethnically intolerant and live in an environment of changing proportion, with regard to people at power. The king banished Jews over financial influence.

Only “seriously mystic Yogis” are to live in the Golden stage, says Mr. Das, but to get there, you need to mind who could be “meddling with your mind”. In this context, the movie shows the US Great Seal.

We have to become aware of who’s meddling in our minds. Our mind is our biggest problem, when it is not under our control, says Mr. Das.

Fell welcome to read ■→A New People, about the USA Great Seal. There has been a degree of misunderstanding about the motto, but the Seal certainly brings no evil. It only tells a new nation has become.


Mr. Bonacci says that death of the mortal body is a “non-event”.

If we continued to teach our original, nature religion, and we didn’t stop with the advent of Christianity, we would know that death of our mortal body is a non-event, claims Mr. Bonacci.

Gregg Braden purports that people watching the news on September 11 produced an emanation that altered the Earth’s electromagnetic field. He shows a graph for a classified reading in nanotesla by NASA.

Click to enlarge.

I have never had access to secret or classified data, but I also never have seen a “NASA anonymous”, that is, an illustration or graph without a note on authors or agency. I browse pictures of the cosmos sometimes, to relax.

Nano means one billionth. People would not make a proud comparison against batteries already on the surface of this Earth, if to have the tesla quantities for the result.

On the cellular level, Bud Barber says he can perceive cosmic energies as vibrations in his body.

The reason (for cosmic impulses) is the same a cell in your body puts out vibrations, within that cell, to make sure that the cell is a whole, is “operating on the same page”, he says.

Mr. Barber’s belief would let the cosmos in your body. The cosmos happens to be a violent place as well. On the side of desirability, Vamsi Krishna admits to experiencing adverse effects:
…a human being is “bombarded” with unwanted thoughts constantly, during the day, which depletes his mental energies. It causes a drain of physical energy.

The sake of objectivity requires that I mention microwave technologies, only recently to have become revealed to the public. Some of the experiences described above, as influence inside own body or exhaustion, do match descriptions of microwave effects.

…There is nothing more to us than just those skandhas, Wikipedia quotes Mark Siderits.[2]

There were no microwave technologies in Antiquity. Buddha yet starved to meditate, and the spoken tradition tells he even fainted during the practice. His might have been an early reasoning on stochastic and deterministic modes of brain neural networks. The modes are standard human neurophysiology. We can perceive them without hunger, stress, vibration, “bombardment”, or any religious reference, to help own language study. Feel welcome to try:

[2] Buddhist philosophy, Mark Siderits: “What the Buddhist has in mind is that on one occasion one part of the person might perform the executive function, on another occasion another part might do so. This would make it possible for every part to be subject to control without there being any part that always fills the role of controller (and so is the self). This would explain how it’s possible for us to seek to change any of the skandhas while there is nothing more to us than just those skandhas.” Ujęcie strony | strona w internecie.
