And many subjects in between. How children learn. Thinking. Difference between material and digital spaces. Writing requires people to be alone. Memes. Reality tunnels. Synchronicity. Jung. Occultism. Projecting onto a mirror. The Mandela Effect.
What is real? Substantially real? Lies and Sophistry in Plato. Matter according to Aristotle. The space of the Internet. Unusual experiences. How to know what are an authentic experiences. Dark night of soul. Societal trauma.

Discussion with Branko Malic around Academic Paper on After Birth Abortion

In which we discuss various matters in and around an academic paper published in 2012 on the topic of After Birth Abortion.
Paper – https://jme.bmj.com/content/39/5/261

Transcription 51 -54 minutes – (audio interference)
”The principle they took as a starting point was this principle of Absolute I, that I is free and the thing that has to be demonstrated is how non – I , that is the object, the thing that is outside the consciousness is also an I, that everything is conscious, that everything is subject in a sense. And of course at that time, among German philosophers, it was something different, they would never advocate for something like that (abortion), but that split between subject and object is something that rules our age. And it rules academia and it rules the scientific way of thinking. So this is the reason that ideas like this can find their way in academia, with no problem, because however loathsome one can find them people just accept the formal logic they use, because they see nothing wrong. In the age of High Middle Ages, they would face a very long time in the dungeon, or something worse, not because people were more primitive, but because people were aware that there are more fundamental things than subject and object, there are more fundamental things than my I, than my personal aims and so on and so forth. And so I think this is very serious in fact, not that this article is so serious in itself, but the serious thing is that this could be the way of thinking appropriated by the masses, and in the West, as far as I can see, it is appropriated to a large extent, already.”

Reading from Rene Guenon’s Introduction to the Study of the Hindu Doctrines ~ Sankhya, Yoga and Vedanta

In his book Introduction to the Study of the Hindu Doctrines René Guénon lists six main darshanas or ”points of view” applicable within the Hindu doctrine. These are not competing or conflicting philosophical systems, as they are sometimes misunderstood to be, but are rather traditional and orthodox ways ”to see”.
The six darshanas are Nyaya and Vaisheshika, Sankhya and Yoga, Miminsa and Vedanta.
Nyaya means logic or method. Vaisheshika means individual thing and is concerned with the knowledge of individual things . ”While Nyaya treats of things in their relationship with the human understanding, Vaisheshika considers them more directly for what they are in themselves.” (RG). Mimansa means profound thought or the meditative study of the Vedas.

In this Podcast I read the three chapters Guénon wrote concerning the 3 other named darshanas, that is Sankhya, Yoga and Vedanta
