Schopenhauer, Wittgenstein, Sri Aurobindo, and Habermas

Hi Paul,

What you have described is quite close to what Aurobindo says in this wonderful book "The Psychic Being", and something that I also think is the right picture. There are no demarcations at the level of consciousness. It is only access to memory that is divided, but that too with porous walls which tend to fall apart. What we call an individual is not a bundle of consciousness, but a bundle of memory. After death, the particular bundles of memory may get mixed together or may also split into more than one part and get reborn as separate individuals. Hence, the key to all these questions is to understand how memory exists outside the body-brain complex. Trying to develop theories for consciousness is not going to be very fruitful.

Best,
Kushal.

It's Dayanand versus Darwin

Daily Pioneer-1 hour ago
A close reading of Sri Aurobindo's tribute to Swami Dayanand would reveal that the monk was not an empiricist but a doctrinaire. “Here was one who did not infuse himself informally into the indeterminate soul of things, but stamped his figure indelibly as in bronze on men and things' (Bankim-Tilak-Dayanand P.42).

To read & comment. My view Gandhi Aurobindo Vivekananda defined Indian nationalism from the Hindu perspective which the SC has almost endorsed. Inviting criticism. https://t.co/OD8dJG23dy

Read the whole damn thing sir. Aurobindo is being polite. He points out that the superficial meanings seek to support such conclusions but overall it has nothing to do with Arctic because it does not mean "literal night" and "literal dawn". You need to read this carefully.
