Re: Mathematics in China

First you say that it is not important "who invented what first", and then you say "it was the greeks"! This is quite common, unfortunately. The history of mathematics starts from simple things, there are still tribes that do not have more numbers than 1,2,3 &4, some tribes have 5 numbers, some have...

Mathematics in China

There are several highly interesting books about the history of mathematics. The topic is an object of intense nationalistic interests and assaults from different quarters, which is quite natural because mathematics has turned out to be of such great importance for the development of human culture. ...

Re: Music time

lol, when music was..well...music! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqZceAQSJvc Thanks! At one time I had an experience about this piece of music, that it is some how involved in what it says, i.e. "a soul sacrifice". I don't know exactly what that is, it is some kind of magic ritual that they do in...

Re: What is reborn after death?

The pure consciousness is reborn, or a pure being is reborn. This is a more helpful attitude. It ofcourse is also true, because samsara is empty of reality.

Re: A Geofencing Buss in Göteborg Sweden

3 out of 10 of Keoli's buses in Gothenburg drive too fast in public transport, showing a survey. Testing has begun to use GPS signals to control speed. The technique is called geofencing. Geofencing is tested today on bus 55 in Gothenburg. When the bus runs up to Götaälvbron, the speed is automatica...

Re: time traveling?

For my part I can say that my "feeling" is that they are genuine, especially when compared to those new ones that are clearly propaganda & rubbish. This comes into the area of Knowledge of the three times , which is kind of interesting. They must have had an influence, because the various propagandi...

Re: Pure Land - Some Doubts and Weak Faith

Sometimes my faith is weak and I have doubts of Pure Land teachings...are they real? Buddha did not teach such things. Others did. Its easy to imagine somewhere (some centurys ago), an abbot or a monk, seeing people lacking in faith, decide to create the Pure Land teachings. And thats it, we have t...

Al Bielek is an older one, that has existed for more than a decade. Then there is the ApexTV, which is one of the originals in this branch. Bu...

Re: No end to samsara?

I also think there are many unexplained things in the behaviour of bacteria, as an example. How can we know they do not somehow perceive their surroundings? Bacteria have bacterial conjugation . Bacteria move from one place to another place, why would they do that? Do they have an awareness of an o...
