Who's Disclosure is Disclosure?

Sun Apr 14, 2019 2:16 am by Cyrellys

The narrative war is in full swing. When there's a 100 different competing narratives, how is it possible to discern a disclosure?

Is it akin to which truth is Truth?

First topic message reminder :

(‘first topic message reminder.......’)

Once again, I attempt to bring the conversation back to Personalism......

Disclosure is simply going to underscore the infinite worth and potential of every sapient creature, ie, person.  Anything other than that is simply false.
...........

The upshot of my conversation with AP........  

We agreed that there would not be much point in our having a dialogue on the blog, so long as he was not prepared to seriously reconsider his strong belief in scientific cosmology.  I refer to this cosmology as the big world hypothesis, as opposed to the SWH, which I consider essential to the BPWH.  

So, we are back to business as usual.......
...........


Now what.......?

I would like to know if anyone on the blog is willing to give the SWH their serious consideration.  

Don’t all speak up at once........


(cont.......).

To test the SWH, I suggest we get Bigelow's people to help put Dan up on the moon, to contemplate the existence of a much smaller and not quite the best possible (nearest neighbor) world to the earthly BPW!

While there he might encounter the alleged moonstruck aliens, and test the UTH vs ETH at the same time!

I'd contribute $10 to get Dan to the moon.  Who else?

I appreciate the SWH because it focuses in on the meaning and purpose of the UFO phenomenon. That they are not just anomalous flying objects and lights in the sky... they are much more than that and there are many people out there who have had encounters with them who have experienced personal transformations where their old view of reality no longer is working anymore. The SWH gives a coherent alternative view of reality which allows us to rethink some very fundamental questions on the purpose of our very existence.

It seems that 99 is the only one on the forum who is willing to take the small world hypothesis seriously.  

I’m not real sure what the rest of you good folks are doing here.

I guess you are hoping that Ron will still be dropping tidbits on me, every now and then.  

The rest of the time, I guess that 99 and I will be discussing the small world hypothesis. Yes, 99?

I would be honored Dan to continue having the opportunity to participate in discussions here on your BPWH/SWH.  Every time I delve into it, I experience new revelations. It's an intellectual exercise that's opened up a whole new worldview that's, to say the least, very mind-expanding!

99 and dd,

Amazing, there are actually three of us in the world who give enough credence to immaterialism to spend time on it.

And then it occurs to me that we can start this discussion on a new thread, so that I don’t have play the bouncer on this one.

I think I’ll just call it Immaterialism. I consider the small world hypothesis (SWH) to be a corollary of immaterialism. The SWH will be a secondary topic, at first.....

To be continued on the new thread........ Immaterialism >>>>>

The SWH is based on the premise that:

Dan wrote: the fact that this world is the center of spiritual gravity for the cosmos (and it) underlies the entire prophetic tradition.

The assumption being, in this case, within the context of a heterodox Christian translation of biblical 'prophetic tradition'.
