It’s about how our brains process sensory information. There are two separate processing systems in our brains.
In the best of worlds they complement each other.
But in religious contexts there is too much emphasis on information processing system #1 (= IPS 1), a.k.a. the child’s way of thinking. If adults use too much of IPS 1 thinking, the childhood’s imaginary friends are transformed to divine beings up in the air, a.k.a. Hidden Causal Agents (HCAs).
2015/09/21″I just dropped by in order to wish you a very good morning, KK.
BTW, speaking of building bridges, you’re not alone in doing that.
Have a look at this “bridge” constructed by Nature itself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pont_d%27Arc .
Pont d’Arc is located not far from the Chauvet Cave, with its beautiful and astonishing artistic paintings made by our ancestors maybe 30,000 years (or so) ago. A coincidence? Don’t think so.
I think ot the Chauvet Cave as a sanctuary. A room of sanctity. Full of reverence and deep respect of Mother Nature.
Maybe I’m wrong. But yet, the mind reels.
Who can deny that art (in its various manifestations) is the pinnacle of human civilzation? (This is a rhetorical question = it’s unnecessary to provide an answer since the answer of that posed question is so obvious.)
BTW once more: Here you can see other examples of natural bridges. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_arch .
Beautiful pics. No, that’s the wrong adjective to use. Awesome or breathtaking are better words to choose here.
Now to my message to all followers of the Charles Rogers Home Page Blog.
KK, the man behind – and creator of – that blog has given me many good and partly new insights. For instance this one: By exploring mankind’s past you are at the same time able to understand yourself, and the society you live in today, better. Yes, I believe you would also be better at looking into mankind’s future.
In short, knowledge of the past is necessary for all of us to better understand who we are today, and will become tomorrow.
Civilizations have come and gone. One of the longest known human civilizations is, maybe, the the one created by the Aborigins, still existing – but seemingly fading away – in today’s Australia and New Zealand.
Our Western civilization – how long will it survive? When will our own civilization fade away and become a parenthesis in the history of Homo sapiens?
One thing is clear, there is a growing need of building bridges. The natural ones (seen in the pictures above) are not enough .
So let’s join KK (a.k.a. clanton1934) in his quest to unite the world, to tie it together.
Today 22 countries are connecting here on his blog.
That figure is constantly growing.
But please, help KK (and me) by spreading the good news wherever you can. Tell folks you meet both on internet and IRL that the water in here, on this blog, is fine. Both to taste (drink) and to swim and play in.
It’s an oasis for those thirsting for knowledge and wisdom. KK is a sage. You need not read many of his blog posts in here to be convinced that statement is true.
With that I said, I have to, temporarily, leave this oasis. My “camel caravan” is waiting for me to join them. But I’ll soon be back, KK. I like the waters in here. Both to drink and to swim.
May the sun make the water surface in this oasis shimmer like a diamond. And remember, folks, this oasis is no mirage! It’s for real! I, for one, know that!”
