I’ve just been trying to promote your books when I see people discussing related topics, by concisely explaining some of the arguments you’ve made and directing them to a suitable page of your website if they seem like they could be interested. I don’t see how else to assist your “new house” project, but I’ll stop if you think my efforts are counterproductive.
Is there a difference between Bhagavān and Paramātmā related to this topic? For example, it’s been my impression that the Supersoul knows everything, whereas Kṛṣṇa knows whatever He wants.
Wow! The different definition is revolutionary. I had an inkling of it already, but seeing it spelled out like this is powerful. Having been raised in a Christian family and a predominantly Christian country, I have some deep beliefs I had been reconsidering, which now need to be revised with this understanding. Thank you so much!
That’s quite clear. I had to stop briefly after the first paragraph, because it was a stunning revelation, and it made me cry again while thinking how fortunate I am to be learning this. I feel like a genius for finding your writing and recognizing its importance, and an imbecile for how challenging it is for me to understand, but your patience and kindness is helping me progress and has given me confidence again for devotional service.
That’s amazing. My chief difficulty understanding this before was because of the amount of water would be highly variable in a flat description of the Earth, but your answer indicates that isn’t really a problem.
A similar point of confusion I have with the flat or lotus model (not about tides) is how travel around Antarctica works, whether by boat or in air, since the distance would be very large in a disc model, or interrupted in a lotus model. I thought it was the same issue, but the relationship between the moon and the ocean doesn’t seem applicable.
I think I’m almost beginning to understand but need more help. Many problems seem inherently quantitative. For example, anyone planning a drive will want to know how much fuel is needed to reach their destination. The fuel dispenser has a gauge, as does the car, and the car itself is like another type of gauge that stops when the tank becomes empty.
Physics says the speed of travel, mass of the vehicle, the friction, air resistance, etc., combine to estimate how much fuel will be consumed. Using a qualitative understanding, how can we know if there’s enough fuel in the tank or if it’s necessary to add more?
That makes sense. Thank you.
I was thinking before that loop means a circle, but then I remembered when I was a kid having a toy car race track with a loop. The loop had an entrance and exit that were adjacent, rather than being an actual circle. This makes sense to me because, although a house is a closed region of space, it must have one or more doors. Hierarchical loops give the impression of an extended spiral, like the threads of a wood screw, but then it’s not clear where the doors would be.
The idea of looping space reminds me of a Pac Man game where exiting the screen on one side is followed by entrance on the opposite side, except perhaps on a different board or level.
