Re: Some Understanding Problems about Fundamental Structure by Nanavira

So these o's and x's are a big part of what I'm struggling with. So are we saying that if I'm attending to an o in my field of vision, lets say this laptop, the x stands for the negative eye, and all three os stand for the laptop? (I'm setting the singular whole aside for a moment) This is a big pa...

Are you saying that if someone in the US buys a cheap shirt made in china then the fruition of thier kamma is lung disease?
Only if that someone happens to live in California.

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

The question is when will alternative energy become cheaper than its more pollutive counterparts. Solar and wind are already the cheapest source of energy in many places and situations already. ... If the problem of storing the power can be solved, the next big challenge is capacity. How many wind ...

Re: Some Understanding Problems about Fundamental Structure by Nanavira

The letter dates back to January 1959 before Ven. Ñanavira's breakthrough, but this passage I think is helpful in gaining some understanding of what FS is trying to describe. My view of being is this: the present single directly perceived phenomenon (whatever it may be) appears against a background ...

The link has more to do with the technology itself. As it is applied to coal, the PBS Newshour aired a story on it back in June 2017:

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

The US is falling behind pretty fast and may end up in the position of Communist Eastern Europe... I kind of doubt that. Prior to the building of more gigafactories (see below), Tesla may expand and potentially double the size of Gigafactory 1. In June 2015, Tesla announced it exercised its option ...

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

If the planet is under threat and you personally think it is, as you say, then your defence of Trump is quite weird. (I'm sorry, but I can't be any more polite than that.) Can you give us your reasons? To begin with I don't consider Trump bashing a healthy activity, neither for oneself nor for soci...

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

He did not make an offer.....he just said he wanted to renegotiate.... On the contrary: he never said he wanted to renegotiate the agreement, but rather expressed a willingness to do so, i.e. he made an offer. If the planet is under threat -- and personally I think it is -- the globalists ought to ...

And note that these were presidential appointments. How are they any less 'dictatorial' than Obama's executive order??
Presidential appointments have to be confirmed by our representatives in the U.S. Senate.

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

Considering that the President took the first step in making the offer, I think it would behoove the international community to consider it rather than to reject it out of hand. The Paris Agreement was controversial in American society, not solely over the issue of climate change, but by the way it ...

Re: Global Warming: Recent Data

President Trump has offered time and again to renegotiate the Paris Agreement, his primary complaints against the previous accord being the incommensurable burden it placed on the U.S. -- especially when compared to China and India -- and the fact that it was neither debated nor approved by Congress...

I couldn't find a good definition of reflexion to illustrate what nanavira is talking about. Husserl's concept of apperception is helpful in understanding what Ven.
