    firstly - i cant believe i watched one of your video posts.

    secondly - i actually enjoyed it.


    interesting that the scientist was expected to explain in detail yet the sage got away with using vague language and zero detail.

    Nice vid. Plenty of little lessons to be gleened here.

    Shermer comes in full of conviction about his views but when Chopra questions he gets quite flustered after a while -to where he simply cant answer the questions. It seems he cant even understand one or two of those questions, and I reckon that's because his view is so rigid.

    He says there is no mind and then says , well if there is a mind then where is it. Typical materialist question. Not concerned with the nature of this 'mind' or anything else interesting but straight to dissection (scientist).

    Thing is space and time are just a construct for us to move through so that we may become self-concious to bring more light into this part of the universe. The "mind" wont be dissected or put here or there - that's contrary to it's nature.

    It is only through this process of elimination, where we find what the mind isn't, that we start to understand what it is.
