Selene Posted March 20, 2009 Share Posted March 20, 2009 It is true that a person's own awareness is all he is going to get knowledge-wise. But he has to get knowledge of something. Otherwise it is not knowledge.If I understand your position correctly, a person only gains knowledge of himself, since nothing exists independently from himself.You misunderstand me. Our senses abstract from energies - we don't sense objects directly. These energies exist independent of us. You speak as though objects exist independently but I claim only energies exist and we manufacture, abstract, or integrate objects in our nervous systems.GS:Just verify this, when I am standing in the batter's box and a 93 mph fast ball is approaching, I am sensing the energies of the ball that my senses organize into the surface image that I am attempting to meet with my energy bat which I can sense through my hands? Yes?I am not being facetious here.Adam Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
