Enforcing my view by creating a thread dedicated to the topic you wish to discuss?oushi wrote:Anyway, there is no point in debating with someone who thinks he knows the answer and is only interested in enforcing his views on others.
Good. So discuss it. Just don't expect everybody to agree with you. This is, after all, "A Buddhist discussion forum on Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism". It is not a pulpit for preaching, so be prepared to have people contradict your view.For me, this subject is fascinating, and the consequences of those discoveries are hard to fathom.
That's right. That is my opinion. It does not concur with yours, and neither does yours with mine, so??? And I am not trying to fool anybody. My view is out there plain and clear for everybody to see. Feel free to prove it wrong. Anticipate that others may try to prove your view wrong. That is how discussion and debate works after all.For you, it is"ridiculous", "fanciful and childish to say the least". You may try to fool others, but you will not fool me here.

That's probably the most long winded way of answering with: "I don't know" that I have seen for a long time.oushi wrote:I thought you have had enough of this discussion.... You are forcing yourself, or you suddenly gained interest in it? That would be good. Maybe you will do some reading, contemplating and writing that will bring something beside your prejudice toward the subject. You are most welcome. I do not claim to know everything about the matter, I am afraid that nobody does, but it is precisely why I am bringing this topic to the public, so people can share what they know, and I don't have to rely purely on my conclusions. It's all about sharing ideas, not about proving others wrong at all costs. At least Simon got frustrated to such a degree that he will try to save the world from my evil plot and bake something fresh. Since his intentions are driven by desire to prove me wrong, I don't know how good will his discoveries be, but hey, lets hope for the best.Sherab Dorje wrote:Enforcing my view by creating a thread dedicated to the topic you wish to discuss?
By moving it from General Buddhism to Lounge where only few look... Wow, Thanks!

The video that was posted by Oushi does definitely raise an issue:
If one's brain was to be divided, and each hemisphere was to continue to function independently, what becomes of the Buddhist claim that a person has only one mind-stream?
