Proof of reincarnation.

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Jakob,


I'd say, we suffer ourselves, and pleasure is a segment of this self-suffering, the segment we suffer voluntarily. I think the "key" to life is to know how to enjoy the greater part of the self-suffering.


You almost seem to be speaking of masochism here unless you do not actually mean that suffering is pleasurable though to a masochist it can be. They can derive pleasure and satisfaction from their suffering.

We are capable of suffering at times and of feeling pleasure/enjoyment/joy at times.
Perhaps they are like the aspects of a diamond ~ separate but belonging to the same self.
We know the one because we are intimate with the other.


Do we actually feel pleasure, if that is the experience or emotion, when we are suffering even though we realize that it is for a good cause? Or might it have, could we give it, a different name, a less masochistic or hedonistic name?
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience


“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”

I believe that nothing good comes easy
our life is a struggle, and if we do enough of efforts it might end up with something good

It's also a state free from all pleasure/enjoyment/satisfaction/contentment, so it's equally not preferable to existence. Eternal non existence is a null state.

Yes, I agree. The reality is indifferent.
The sincerity in mind is the door to divine knowledge.

Why are we brought back to the generator of a 1000 lives swimming pool, and reunited with our higher selves to immerse ourselves into the spectrum of full elevation? Is there a machine that's harvesting us, pulling our strings, playing with our life shards, and dumping us back into a meat grinder?

For some reason, we have to learn the long and painful way, rather than just having a super computer god ultimate designer programmer upload all of he schematics into our minds.

It's kind of like asking why when we play Pokemon games, we can't all just start out at level 100.

There must be some deep engine in ultimate reality that we have to overturn, to defeat, to cast back into the darkness, and finally, when all preparations and stages are met, build the rainbow bridge to infinity.

Way outside our soul source, we could merge somewhere with pure Wish, giving us all of our desires, playing on the seashore to of a fantastic telescope of wonder.

The value of a novel is not that it is real or will ever happen but rather it represents reality in an architectural model of how it could be or should be. Similarly, when theoretical physicists dream of a utopian golden age of scientific discovery where humans have evolved to the point of mastering hyperspace and bending the universe to their will, the value of it is not that logical calculations indicate humans are too insignificant for this to be our destiny, but rather the value is in the theory itself of creating a vastly unprecedented and advanced society, the architectural model of how humanity could evolve and what humanity should achieve. Achieving this in the imagination, the world of the mind would be the focus that could manifest itself into a better reality. The value is in the journey of humans becoming the lords of creation rather than the destination.

It may be more basic, like getting down to the most often asked , yet all pervading question : is it this , or, is it that.

Is what we summarize as Consciousness , outsourced or in, or is there a causality to indifferetiate or It's opposite, .?

For, if , we are like receivers , channelling in signals shutting out most other interference, than it's obvious we really are a form of convertible artificial simulation .

But if the paradox be held that the totality of that outsource can be absolutely re-created,and only internally sliced, then the paradox dissipates.
