no, no, no, don't fret at all about going off subject, as your hypothesis makes for a very interesting discussion, not to mention, might very well be related to the subject...to me, anyway.
I think there is error in both directions. When we forget our common humanity, we alienate the sexes and create division in the forms of both chauvinism and extreme feminism. But when we forget the uniqueness and respective roles of gender, we create functional confusion, and a loss of mystique and romance. Androgyny would be such a bore!
Amen, yanno, we are all made with a balance of both negative positive energy as well? Certainly, then, you've heard of anima, and animus?
(further) A dimension concieved as a subtle region of space/conciousness beyond, but permeating the universe and inhabited by evolving spirit-life beings in different stages of conciousness.'
I'm not stating your wrong, there is to me, much to what you've stated, but, I’m simply building on your statement.
I'm not actually thinking of other dimensions as beyond (per say, beyond our universe, although there may very well be), but actually right here parallel to ours...to me, walking right beside you, yanno? its intriguing to speculate just how many there might be?
Take the Philadelphia Experiment, even though its a terrible thought, eye witnesses that were involved in the experiment, aboard the ship, when brought back, some were badly burned, some never returned, some, were actually melted half way into the ship...a really grusome picture, I know, but still on a scientific level, very interesting. Oh, and those who were on that ship, had no idea what was going to happen, they just knew they'd be a part of an experiement, the navy was experiementing with.
I believe back in the 40's when the CIA started their LSD experiments, it was linked to the manchurian candidate experiements...they had hoped to create a being void of human emotion? It was extremely funded...that's how Timothy Leary got his start....
The use of drugs by secret agents had been in part a myth, but in the early 40's the first effort of experiements, on the part of an American espionage organization, to modify human behavior through chemicals, did in fact, take place.
I believe they also were thought to hope for using it for interrogation purposes, as well as a weapon.
I don't know if the participants were unwilling or not or perhaps a little of both, b/c I've read articles on the subject that suggested they wanted to put it in a punch for unknowing participants, to monitor the effects. Was it done? Who knows...
I agree, there's capacity for error in both directions, that's what happens when extremes are compared, but I believe the inherent differences between men and women are physical, not mental. Of course, we are all mentally unique too, but as humans, we can all mentally operate on the same level, but then consider geniuses, or idiot suvance...where are they, mentally? Remember, way back they were thought to be mentally impaired...but in fact, I wonder?
And all this ties in with dimensional theory, even your discussions of men and women being the same.
and consider if you will, where loss of soul comes into play, (both spiritually, and scientifically) clinical depression...
mental fatique, where personality falls apart? A paralysis of thought and will. Perhaps an error? Imagination is to verbally exprss the personality, and when that is lost, surpressed, there is lack of courage, ambition...where to, does that person go?
Tao belief for example
chance and conscious represent three features of one manifestation of the cosmic creative force. It is the same 'implicate order' (Bohm) of quantum non-locality as expressed for example in the transactional interpretation and in such ideas as morphic resonance (Sheldrake).
there is something to this, and to me, related to God's greatness...all perhaps are one, related, and most of all, a significant of purpose, without one, there would not be the other? Think of the Trinity....which is one of the hardest concepts to absorb, let alone define?
The uncanny coincidence of events (synchronicity) which heraled Jung's split from Freud emphasizes a way in which seemingly accidental phenomena of nature can become "gives positive support from the world around us" therefore, God's positive achievement, yet, even more so, He watches us, knows all and sees all....perhaps from another dimention.
If that were the case, then going further, there could be levels of dimensions, as well, perhaps givning an interritation for heaven and hell being two of them? As in levels of perhaps some unknown concsiensness?
Consider, if you will, the perseption of animals, which we know nothing about..nor can see that perseption or be aware of it with any of our own senses, yet, it exists?
Pretty interesting stuff, and therein lies my belief in God...not from a Bible that men wrote, but from a science/religion aspect that to me, are so closely related it's uncanny and unfathomable to human beings. We just don't have the stuff to perceive it, yet?
Yeah, I know, pretty heavy metal...I bet your next question is....
Lee J. are you on drugs?????
This stuff fasinates me.
Oh another thing, you know how a dog will circle and circle until they lay down. Well, that has been passed onto them from the beginning of time, from the pack, when they would lay down so against the breeze, so they could detect oncoming danger...this was passed down through their genes, which to me, would then explain our concept of de javu in humans, yes?
