Is life an illusion?

1. EmptyHub (If everything is just an illusion) refers to the parable of Jesus "about a son who leaves his father's home, squanders his wealth, returns destitute and poor, only to be loved even more... 

"To put it another way, one has to pass through the false in order to know the true."

The son learns to be part of 'God' rather than an individual selfish self.

 As Jesus said: "I and the father are one".

2. Alexi Helligar (If everything is just an illusion) refers to the 'zero state' of 'self'.

"Living beings resist the zero state so they can experience enjoyment out of what is essentially nothingness."

3. p3ndulum (If everything is just an illusion) refers to our possible illusions about our 'loved one'.

"We don't get to see who is truly there in front of us because we've painted them in a hue in an effort to fit them into our paradigm of what we believe a 'loving' relationship should be/look like."

4. There is a belief that if we can detach ourself from our sense of being an individual self, then we are detached from physical and emotional discomforts.

5. The philosopher George Berkeley argued that a thing only exists as an idea in someone's mind. 

Quantum theory tells us that an unobserved small object exists only in an unpredictable state, with no defined location or motion until the moment it is observed.

6. Socrates and Plato argued that beyond what we think is real there lies a world of 'perfect' forms. 

"Everything that we see is just a shade, an imitation of how things truly are." 

10 mind-blowing theories.

In other words, the material world as it seems to us is not the real world.

We should see the difference between 'vulgar lust' and 'love for the divine'.

7. According to the Taoists: "We are asked to keep our awareness in two places at once. 

"There is no self, yet I exist as a self. 

"Laozi says: live in the world of manifest reality... but remain aware of the formless, remain aware of the state that is beyond desire. 

"Be in the world, but not of the world."

Laozi and Quantum Physics .

8. So, some philosophers and scientists believe that the "physical world" may be an illusion.

In the Taoist book Zhuangzi, by Zhuang Zhou, we read:

"Once upon a time, Zhuang Zhou dreamed he was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting about happily enjoying himself. 

"He did not know that he was Zhou. 

"Suddenly he awoke, and was palpably Zhou. 

"He did not know whether he was Zhou, who had dreamed of being a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming that he was Zhou. 

For the Hindus, Brahman (God) is everything, and is both in the world and not in the world, at the same time.


9. Stav Strashkothe First Ever Zionist Androgynous Model is made out of tiny particles which can act as matter and anti-matter.

Everything is made out of tiny things called particles.

A particle called the Weyl fermion has no mass.

It is empty of matter.

It is a basic building block of matter, even more fundamental than the electron.

The Weyl fermion can act as matter and anti-matter simultaneously.


0 = +X -X

Stav Strashko can be both nothing and something at the same time.

Stav Strashko can be both male and female at the same time.

Everything has its opposite - left and right, happy and sad, love and hate, inside and outside...

Every particle (the matter that the universe is made of) has its antiparticle (the antimatter that the universe is also made of).

Physicists at Princeton University have observed a particle that behaves both like matter and antimatter.

In other words, the scientists have observed a particle that is its own antiparticle.

Particle observed, both matter & antimatter

Matter is a mirror image of antimatter.

There is a belief that it is our minds that create matter.

'0' can become something.

How might things come into existence?

A mathematical equation shows us how it may work.

0 = +X -X

+X is matter (particles)

-X is anti-matter (anti-particles)

Think of the TAOIST idea of YIN and YANG.

Let us say that YIN represents mainly minus numbers and YANG represents mainly the plus numbers.

The Buddhists say that you cannot have Nirvana without Samsara.

A good game of golf involves a LITTLE bit of Nirvana and a LITTLE bit of Samsara?

10. Let's look at Taoism.

1. The Force

Consider Luke Skywalker and how Obi-wan Kenobi taught him about "the Force".

Luke had to avoid being distracted by things like fear and anger.

He had to learn about spontaneity.

On one occasion, Luke was trying, without success, to avoid laser blasts from a 'remote'.

When Obi-wan Kenobi placed a helmet on Luke's head so he couldn't be distracted, he easily deflected the remote's laser blasts.

The idea is that when you are aware of the 'Tao' and feel 'the force', you can flow with it, and the right action appears for itself, spontaneously.

(More here: / http://www.belief )

The economy does not work when things are out of balance.

2. What are the essentials of Taoism?

( / Http://

Some Taoists and Christians and others believe that bliss can be achieved when:

1. One is compassionate

2. One is moderate (Avoid large numbers?)

3. One is humble (Avoid large numbers?)

4. Everything is in balance (+ X - X rather than +X - 1000X?)

5. One is in tune with the Holy Spirit or the Tao or whatever one wants to call it. One goes with the flow.

6. One avoids the use of force; one avoids pitting one's will against the universe.


The Christians talk about God’s spirit.

God nourishes us.

The Taoists talk about the Tao being a force that flows through everything. 

The Tao nourishes us.

3. The Tao and Yin and Yang:

When the Tao is in balance one can be happy. (+ X - X rather than +X - 1000X?)

There is Yin and there is Yang (just as there is black and white, up and down, male and female).

'When they are equally present, all is calm. 

'When one is outweighed by the other, there is confusion and disarray.

'The Tao surrounds everyone and one must listen to find enlightenment.'

True Taoism does not get bogged down with theology. "The Tao that can be named is not the true Tao."

Taoists love their enemies. "I am good to the man who is good to me, likewise, I am also good to the bad man."

The USA's Phoenix programme (left) involved torturing and killing civilians. The USA's ISIS force is also going to extremes.

4. Wu wei is action through inaction; ‘a practice of minimal action, particularly minimal violent action’. 

Don’t overdo the antibiotics or the pesticides. 

Don’t bomb your enemies.

Consider the lilies.

Don't force yourself or others to be compassionate. Be spontaneous.

Genuine love is spontaneous love.

The USA is out of balance.

"The Master does not see evil as a force to resist, but simply as an opaqueness, a state of self-absorption that is in disharmony with the universal process, so that, as with a dirty window, the light can't shine through. 

"This freedom from moral categories allows him his great compassion for the wicked and the selfish" - Stephen Mitchell

"The Tao regulates natural processes and nourishes balance in the Universe. 

"It embodies the harmony of opposites (i.e. there would be no love without hate, no light without dark, no male without female.)"

5. Henry C K Liu wrote in the Asia Times about Taoism.

( ).

Where does evil come from?

There can be no ‘good’ without ‘evil’.

"Controlled quantities of the bad can be good. 

"Excessive amounts of the good can be bad. 

"Poison kills. But when handled properly, it can cure diseases. 

"Without poison, there can be no medicine.

"To employ poison to attack poison is a Taoist principle."

The secret is to avoid extremes.

Americans carrying out torture in Vietnam.

How should we act?

We should avoid producing unintended consequences.

"Not taking premature or unnecessary actions keeps all of one's options open, so that the most appropriate action remains available. 

"Actions always elicit reactions. 

"Each action taken provokes reactions from all quarters that, taken together, are always more powerful than the precipitous action itself. It is the ultimate definition of the inescapable law of unintended consequences."

"To follow the dao (path) of life is to go with the natural flow of life and to avoid going against it.

"The ethical theories of Taoism lean toward passive resistance, believing that evil, by definition, will ultimately destroy even itself without undue interference.

"Yet it would be a mistake to regard Taoism as fatalistic and pessimistic, instead of the ultimate sophistication in optimism that it is.

"Only by not applying effort can one achieve that state in which nothing is not attainable effortlessly.

"A little ambition is a good thing. Total elimination, even of undesirables, is an extreme solution, and it is therefore self-defeating.

"Life is a prison from which one can escape only if one does not try to escape. It is the desire to escape that makes a place a prison, and the desire to return that makes it a home. Home is not where one is, it is where one wants to return."

6. Taoism and other religions.

The following comes from:

From Taoism: happiness comes from helping others; wealth comes from giving to others. 

"Love the world as yourself; then you can care for all things."

From Buddhism: "Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy." 

Buddha: "See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?"

From Islam: "There is a reward for your treatment of every living thing." Muhammad also said: "None of you is a believer until you like for others what you like for yourself."

From Christianity: "Do unto others as you would have them do to you."

11. Professor Robert Lanza believes that Death is an illusion.

He believes that it is our minds that create space and time.

He believes that Life creates the Universe.

Robert Lanza and Deepak Chopra, in an article entitled Evolution Reigns, but Darwin Outmoded write:

"Darwin's theory of evolution is an enormous over-simplification.

It's helpful if you want to connect the dots and understand the interrelatedness of life on the planet - and it’s simple enough to teach to children between recess and lunch.

"But it fails to capture the driving force and what’s really going on."

Lanza believes that until you observe the sky as blue and the girl as pretty, everything exists in a state of probability.

But wait a moment.

Some people would say that the sky would exist even if no one was observing it.

Some people would say that our universe existed before people came into existence.

So, some people will not like Lanza's ideas.

Biocentrism Demystified: A Response to Deepak Chopra and Robert Lanza.

Lanza believes that there are many universes.

Lanza explains that everything which can possibly happen is happening at some point across these multiverses.

So, you may think you have died in one universe, but you are still alive in another?

Lanza says that that when we die our life becomes a 'perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse.'

By maria dupovkina

Lanza writes: 'Life is an adventure that transcends our ordinary linear way of thinking.

"When we die, we do so not in the random billiard-ball-matrix but in the inescapable-life-matrix.'

Lanza refers to the famous double-slit experiment involving a particle and two slits in a barrier.

When the scientist is watching, the particle goes through one slit or the other.

But, if the scientist is not watching, the particle acts like a wave and can go through both slits at the same time.

This suggests that the behaviour of the particle is decided by the mind of the scientist.

Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe.

By Valery Titievsky

Lanza's Answers to Basic Questions:

What created the Big Bang?

Answer : No ‘dead’ universe ever existed outside of mind (“Nothingness” is a meaningless concept)

Which came first, rocks or life?

Answer: Time is a form of animal intuition.

What IS this universe?

Answer: An active life-based process

This is reflected in the seven principles of biocentrism:

1st Principle: What we perceive as reality is a process that involves our consciousness.

2nd Principle: Our external and internal perceptions are inextricably intertwined. They are different sides of the same coin and can’t be divorced from one another.

3rd Principle: The behavior of matter is inextricably linked to the presence of an observer.

4th Principle: Without consciousness, “matter” dwells in an undetermined state of probability.

5th Principle: The structure of the universe is explainable only through biocentrism. It’s fine-tuned for life; life creates the universe, not the other way around.

6th Principle: Time doesn’t have a real existence outside of animal intuition.

7th Principle: Space, like time, isn’t an object or thing that has an independent reality.

Robert Lanza, M.D. – BIOCENTRISM » Religion vs. Science

Lanza on God:

Life and consciousness represents one side of the equation, matter and energy the other.

They can't be divorced; split them and the reality is gone...

How can entangled particles be instantaneously connected on opposite sides of the galaxy as if there's no space or time between them?

And how can events in the present affect those in the past?

Recently, scientists sent particles into an apparatus and showed they could retroactively change something that had already happened in the past 

(Science 2007).

Biocentrism says these phenomena occur because space and time aren't just "out there," but are tools of our mind... 

God, too, lives in action and is a relational concept, both existing and not-existing at the same time.

  1. I believe that the formerly Serbian Mr.Strashko has now had a sex-change operation.Hope his boyfriend approves.

  2. Recommended reading:

  3. Your Yin/Yang chart is very inaccurate. Talk to a Chinese person, look it up on a reputable Chinese website, then you will realize what is correct and what is wildly wrong. Meats have to be divided (some are yin, some are yang, beef is pretty neutral actually). Etc.

  4. Man having been created "in the image of God" seems like it agrees with the necessity of the biocentric view to place all of the universal value on the individual consciousness.

    The Gospel of John translated in Chinese opens, "In the beginning was the Tao, and the Tao was with God, and the Tao was God."

    1. The Judeo Christian Islamic imaginary god was created in the image of its bloodthirsty inventors in order to facilitate their control.


  6. I just love your blog,would you mind me reading a bit of your article on youtube?

    1. Feel free to read any bits of the article on Youtube.

      Many thanks!
