Re: Sotapanna

Not from a buddhist point of view. There are many traditions that borrowed this term "sotapanna", same as they borrowed a lot of other terms from buddhism, and use them in a totally different way. When we speak about sotapanna in a buddhist sense, we speak about removing the view that there is a se...

Re: Sotapanna

Is this a Sotapanna experiance? http://ajahnsucitto.org/articles/the-eightfold-path/ "Samādhi is not a concentration that you do, it’s a centred and pleasurable unity that occurs as a result of right view, right effort and right mindfulness. Although the practice of mindfulness and concentration is ...

Re: Sotapanna

Greetings DCM, I think that if someone reveals it here, it will generate some unwolesomes states of mind in some others peoples. For me, there is no more motivating and encouraging thing than Suttas or Dhamma Talks of teachers. And if some Sotapanna will describe his experience (true or false) here,...

Re: Kamma of robots and artificial inteligence

The above is a simple example of how Kamma works. Again, do you still see your question relevant? Can you project a similar scenario on a car driving itself or on AI in general? I think i still see my question relevant, beacause that food can be replaced by "energy" with witch an automatic AI can b...

Re: Kamma of robots and artificial inteligence

I think you miss the point in the sense that you separate Kamma from suffering which is the whole point of the teachings. What did the Buddha came to eliminate if i may ask? Could you share your understanding of how Kamma produces suffering, and how this is relevant to AI? Why you want to talk abou...

Re: Kamma of robots and artificial inteligence

From what you said, i do feel that your understanding of Kamma is not related to the Buddha's teachings, that is: suffering, the cause of suffering, the end of suffering and the path to end suffering. Do you still think that your question is relevant? As i know, kamma-vipaka is caused by intentiona...

Re: Kamma of robots and artificial inteligence

Maybe you should share your understanding of the following to receive a meaningful answer: is there a difference between a self conscious artificial intelligence and a living being? your question implies that in your mind there is a difference, otherwise you would not have asked it, so what is it? ...

Kamma of robots and artificial inteligence

Greetings,

When robots and artificial inteligence will become consious of itself, 100% autonomic, will be able to learn on its own experiance, will make decisions and act, who will accumulate this kamma-vipaka? Who is responsable? It is a living being?

Thanks

Re: Celibacy as a lay person and kamma

The most dificult in celibacy is to clean up your sleeping bad after night "accident". But if you practice good enoght even while dreaming you will understand that situation is "risky" and you will push off a woman (in your case) who will seek for sexual intercorse with you, or wake up...

Re: Invasive animal species and the first precept

Technicaly humain being is an invasive species.

Solution to deal with invasive spacies is to introduse a predator to re create harmony before it was broken.
