Re: Gravity

Since Gravity does not seem to explain close to 90% of the universe there is a new theory proposed which of course is called woo by the establishment (what more can you expect from them anyway). That theory is called the Electric Universe...or plasmic universe. As per the theory there are 4 states ...

All I have said is that the theoretical basis of heavenly objects' influence is the same in explaining Gravitational force and what Astrology seems to be doing.
No it isn't.

Re: Gravity

Nirvanam Whether you think some thing is woo or not does not make it woo. Yes it does woo like anything else is in the eye of the beholder. you said it right! That's exactly what I intended to say...that woo is in the mind of the perceiver. Because you think it is woo, it is woo to you. may not be ...

Re: Gravity

Bugger, crossposted again, so will add a bit at the end and then gracefully retire :wink: The problem occurs because you are not familiar with Eastern thought. That may well be but astrology establishes the celestial contour at the time of birth So? What impact does it make on the newborn? What abo...

Re: Gravity

the main point - if astrology is woo then gravity is woo. Except of course there are specific observable effects of gravity that can be repeated over and over again independently and without exception, whereas I have yet to see any specific observable effects of astrology, even without the requirem...

Re: The Illusion of Reality

What I see is a common misconception arising from an overly simple interpretation of reductionist principles. This actually suggests to me that the mind is lazy and jumps to inaccurate conclusions when it doesn't have sufficient information. The apparent solidity of objects is not due to the mind, ...

Re: Gravity

Well said Emma :) the main point - if astrology is woo then gravity is woo. I don't think that connection is valid, Nirvanam. They have little in common. It's like saying if reiki is woo then so is brain surgery. Hmm, you might be a reiki fan, I'll try another: if talking to plants is woo then so i...

Re: Gravity

Although I am not arguing for Astrology I'll anyway address some questions...the larger point is that of Gravity. I'm sure Alan wasn't trying to argue that, because it wasn't what he said! He wasn't talking about the effect of Jupiter on the Earth, but about the effect of the Earth on us! But the on...

Re: Gravity

Nirvanam, I am not saying that because scientist X says something it must therefore be true, and I agree that we must be catious of giving credence to people merely because of their age or the letters after their name. What I am trying (rather ineptly) to say is that no one can be expert on everyth...

Re: Gravity

I'm in no position to give you any satisfactory explanation to your post, but I can comment on the above paragraph. Heavenly objects do theoretically exert a force on a human. However, because of the immense distances involved, and because (IIRC) gravitational effect decreases (squared) as distance...

Re: Gravity

Well, I may be being really stupid here, too, but your statement Logic tells me that any sort of interaction or communication between two objects happens because they are transferring data/information. doesn't sound right to me. I know it'll be difficult to specify, but you can try to see what does...

Re: The Illusion of Reality

You asked how you might interpret the lack of response. I can't speak for everyone else but I see it as too much, too soon. It's pretty clear to me that this topic might become a bit heated, just by nature of the topic itself. Besides, you put a lot of info into your first post and that requires so...

International Cinema

We get these 2 movie channels which are dedicated to international cinema. For the last 2-3 yrs I have been watching a lot of international cinema and I actually enjoy them. I notice that language is not a barrier really. I wanted to suggest a nice comical action movie called "Two Guys" - Korean, if...

Re: The Illusion of Reality

How do I interpret the lack of responses to this thread? a. Lack of interest in the subject b. Acceptance that Maya is for real...they got it right c.
