Realism as Synaptic Shell
Great Corey, so much real thought, too positive to critique any foibles.
Realities a hard nut to crack, glad u added this.(and got the Physics forum out of a parasite
Heres my comment:
When we crack the synaptic shell,
We enjoy the cosmic yolk.
Recently reread a favorite book 'Dont Sleep, There are Snakes' by D Everett. About the Piraha people, a small outwardly particularly primitive group in the Amazon.
Their disspasionate maturity(overlaying a fearless and deadly but rarely violent honest childlike rascality), their understanding and rejection of civilized mental creations seems to me to be the ideal antithesis to the Naive Realism that Chopra and friends were critiqing and deliniating.
Part of the predicament is how long and how far we will go in the fight, before we realize its our foot we are chokeing on.
