: Hi Josef
: I did not say "don't respond,"
: I said you might not want to read them.
: Hi, rat. Well, I guess I lumped them
: together, "might not want to read
: them" pretty much includes not
: responding. Responding without reading would
: be trippy. :-)
: You said in response to my post: "My
: own (yes, we don't agree on this) take is
: that we think entirely too much, that it is
: a tangled mess of conflicting thought that
: messes up our simple natures which are
: intrinsically social, responsive, and
: essentially "good" by all measures
: we know."
: I took that as a suggestion that it was not
: so useful to analyze these things, which of
: course I am constantly doing. And I agree
: that there is merit to your view. I think
: your view is worthwhile, at least as
: worthwhile as mine.
: Despite many, many years (ten?) of both of
: us sincerely trying to communicate, we don't
: really agree on some essentials, and
: continued effort seems to lead to a sense of
: conflict. One rather defining difference
: seems to me your use of value judgments,
: "am I doing net-good", "you
: may be right; I may be wrong",
: "your view is worthwhile as mine",
: etc. In reading posts I tend to 'listen' for
: reality as I experience it, my value
: judgment seldom going beyond what's
: useful/not useful to read or say.
: After so many years of missing each others'
: points, theres's no good/not good,
: right/wrong, or worthines/unworthiness I can
: see, but I can see it really isn't very
: useful, we have afterall given it a good
: college try. I'll leave you to it, with real
: respect, rat...
Have you read about the Zero Point Field? ZPF has been likened to the Force in Star Wars. To Chi in Taoism. An energy field that gives structure to existence. In Biological terms, aspects of this Field are called Morphogenetic Fields. That is all living things have fields that determine their structure. A cell knows whether it is to be an eye or a foot through its interaction with its parent morphogenetic field. A tree becomes a tree. A man becomes a man. As least as much because of it field as its DNA.
Much of Quantum Physics ties in with the thinking in Taoism. imo. Everything is a form of energy. Everything is interconnected. There is more to Reality than meets the eye.
I would go so far as to say that Quantum Physics can be likened to Scientific Taoism.
Although some of those jumping on the ZPF bandwagon may be a little more New Agey than I might prefer I still think there is much to the concept of the Zero Point Field. Just because something flies in the face of classical convention doesn't mean it can't fly.
Check it out.
