You do not need to accept it. We can just toss out the empiricism, and most importantly radical empiricism and instead use ridicule. Never mind the 'Don't take my word for it. Find out for yourself.' > > Ron: > That comment was never made in your post. The above is not ridicule, it's a critique. You asked > "what could be clearer?" I replied that it's not clear at all and by using your own assertions it could never truly be clear to anyone else besides you.
Marsha: I don't think it is an unique experience. There is no reason others cannot watch thoughts pass through mind. It's an aspect of meditation: watch but don't attach. And the idea is to find out for yourself. That spells 'experience' to me.

Marsha: To some degree.

Marsha: Most recently Andre challenged my ideas regarding a 'self' or 'I' and I suppose it's been on mind, but, regardless, this is another bit of projecting on your part. It's kind of like an old wives tale.
