there are two paths to re-discovering the infinite NoW... one is to look at something without labeling it the other is to label it til it no longer makes sense.

Being - universal and particular. I suspect that you can neither look at something without labeling it in some way, nor can you label it until it no longer makes sense. The infinite is unintelligible - knolwegde is a middle ground.

"I suspect that you can neither look at something without labeling it in some way, nor can you label it until it no longer makes sense." but you can. you just have to stare at something until there are no words, just the image. and you can put words on it over and over until the word is just a sound. knowledge is a middle ground for sure. i wish i were a God or an infant. being in between is what kills me

There is some argument for the existence of non-empirical, non-scientific knowledge,especially as related to moral and religious knowledge, but these arguments are non-falsifiable and thus not subject to logical analysis. Perhaps this should be moved to the SpiritualGround ? edited to ask why there is no SpiritualGround ?

what kind of infinity had we discovered, and then lost it so it can be re-discovered? Are you referring to some kind of Taoist stuff? :)

oh i c. Well the Tao-Te-Ching begins with: "That which can be named is not the eternal Tao". That is why I thought you might have been referring to it.

sounds pretty spot on. then again, those things which we have put labels on are included in what I am saying...i still get the picture from that sentence. there is definately something surrounding us that cannot be named

Dying Breed I don't think that you are talking out of your ass. There is always more beneath the surface of a matter. It is never simple. I think that we cannot avoid labeling. It is part of our nature as humans, we label to define. But we also label to obscure, marginalize,exclude and oppress.

^TRUE it is constantly lost and rediscovered, but there is that moment in between that sometimes can be held on to for about 10 seconds or so, and THAT is what i like to reach for
