In this thread Observational Inquiry vs Intellectual Inquiry? one had made a comment at #27 and among other things had said, "while the above is simply talk, that too erroneous belief based woo woo". The purpose of this post is to open up what he meant by belief based woo woo.
The world is a ‘fiction’. Everything in the world is an 'illusion’. There is no ‘other’ except consciousness. Human experiences are nothing but ‘thought projections’. Essentially there is no real world except for thought projecting the world.
The above are the essential or the core beliefs coming out from a system called nondulaity. Whether these popular and relatively recent interpretations of nondulaity are correct and do justice (as in correct or incorrect) to this age old system can be an extensive study in itself, and requires a solid familiarity with it, but needless to say the present interpretations are popular among groups that subscribe to these beliefs.
Then we have those that have looked into K and Bohm but leaning towards the latter’s babble since they can’t keep up with the purity and uncompromising nature of K’s teachings, have in their quest to become a guru, created a strange mishmash of all these teachings. In their efforts to sell the teachings of nondulaity they deceptively repackaged them under K’s name, but in reality K’s words have simply been reduced to footnotes and references as can be seen.
Thus we have these knaves with their dishonorable intentions, picking up the words, phrases, and logic from many, including from the writer of this post, having created scripts, going around trying to sell their ‘wisdom’ and to better their scripts by the MO of luring others to argue with them.
This is what is happening. However, the glaringly obvious, perhaps funny or perhaps not so funny problem is, in their zealous and violent propagation of their beliefs on others, they are demonstrating a complete contradiction to the beliefs they are trying to sell. These contradictions can clearly be seen in their vehement and often disguised violent responses to others, even though they claim there is no “other”.
The logical question then is who are they trying to convince if there is no other? Who are they talking to if there is no other? Considering the premise that there is no “other” these actions may be correctly termed as schizophrenic, is that it? In order to answer these questions and there can be long list of similar questions, they will have to fall back on “the world is fiction” theory from the nonduality system, which is nothing but a belief which they have accepted as authority but it remains a fiction for them since they are unable to LIVE IT, as is clearly evident.
