Richard’s Correspondence On Mailing List ‘C’
with Respondent No. 4
RESPONDENT: Richard, it would be more compassionate to send a brief amount of targeted information to the list rather than huge amounts of ‘cut and paste’.
RICHARD: Yet each time I initially write to this list I do send ‘a brief amount of targeted information’ ... it is the nature of the responses that elicit the amount of explanation required.
RESPONDENT: Does the practical understanding of your method require reading 10s of 1000s of words?
RICHARD: Apparently so ... maybe it is because I am arraigning the trillions and trillions and trillions of words contained in the Sacred Scriptures of all cultures? If so, then how would a few pithy one-liners à la Mr. Bob Hope succinctly explain the root cause of human suffering ... especially when there is so much misinformation – and disinformation – bandied about?
RESPONDENT: I would ask you to say how your method is applied without all the evolutionary and social preamble.
RICHARD: Yet I have already explained how my method is applied in my initial response to your request; and in the previous post; and again in this post ... despite all of your snipping and sniping (I simply leave the method in each time I reply as I figure you may actually read it this time around). You will find it directly after your question ‘how briefly can your way be taught?’ ... only it is now cut into three sections (first with two interjections from you then separated again by another three interjections from you).
RESPONDENT: When I asked you to summarise I expected brevity not an even longer post which may push some mailboxes over their space quotas.
RICHARD: Maybe – just maybe – it is only because you keep on likening what I say to what you think all those mystics have said that the response becomes more and more detailed?
RICHARD: The solution to all the ills of humankind requires one to step out of the grim and glum ‘real world’ (the everyday ‘reality’ for 6.0 billion peoples pasted as a veneer over the pristine and consummate actual world by the affective faculty) into the actual world of the sensate faculty as is evidenced in a pure consciousness experience (PCE) ... and leave ‘yourself’ behind in that blood-soaked ‘Land Of Lament’ where ‘you’ belong.
RESPONDENT: I don’t really know much about the ‘human condition’ or the 6 billion – be more down-to-earth.
RICHARD: The last time I checked it out all the 6.0 billion people were still on earth (complete with their human condition intact) ... how much more ‘down-to-earth’ can I be than discussing the animal instinctual passions?
RICHARD: The mystics have been transmogrifying the real world ‘reality’ into a ‘True Reality’ via the epiphenomenal imaginative/intuitive facility born of the psyche (which is formed by the instinctual passions genetically endowed by blind nature for survival purposes) for millennia ...
RESPONDENT: ([I] snipped 12 lines). I didn’t ask about mystics fascinating as it maybe on a sleepless night ...
RICHARD: I am well aware that you did not ask for an actual summary of what I am on about ... but as peace-on-earth is my discovery I needs must explain as I see fit. The antics of the mystics are an integral part of the investigation ... the understanding of the workings of dissociation is vital if peace-on-earth is to become apparent.
They and their gullible acolytes have been stuffing up the works for millennia.
RESPONDENT: But it is morning here and I have things to do.
RICHARD: Back in 1981, when I deliberately triggered off my major break-through into another dimension to life by dissolving the ego-self, I was running my own business; working 10 to 12 hour days, six or seven days a week; raising a family of four school-age children; paying off a mortgage and a car and juggling bill payments; leading a busy social life ... all in all, a normal human existence. In 1992, when I dissolved the soul-self, I was managing a property in the country for an absentee landlord with all that is entailed in that.
What was the point you were making?
RICHARD: I am fully conversant with that hallucinogenic and delusory ‘Timeless and Spaceless and Formless’ realm from my own intimate experience over eleven years ... its understanding is vital if there is to be peace-on-earth ...
RESPONDENT: ([I] snipped 24 lines) How conversant is ‘fully’?
RICHARD: Why on earth would you want to know this ... seeing that you have dismissively snipped the very valid explanation for me writing this sentence in the first place? Which means: why do you wish to know how fully conversant I am with something you do not want to read about? However, for what it is worth: I lived that hallucinogenic and delusory ‘Timeless and Spaceless and Formless’ fantasy for the twenty four hours of the day for a full eleven dissociated years and, as I thus experienced it intimately, I therefore know it the full 100%.
RESPONDENT: Richard, could you summarise please?
RICHARD: The single root cause of all the mayhem and misery that epitomises the human condition is the persistent feeling of being an identity inhabiting the body: an affective ‘entity’ as in a deep, abiding and profound feeling of being an occupant, a tenant, a squatter or a phantom hiding behind a façade, a mask, a persona; as a subjective emotional psychological ‘self’ and/or a passionate psychic ‘being’ (‘I’ as ego and ‘me’ as soul) inhabiting the psyche; a deep feeling of being a ‘spirit’; a consciousness of the immanence of ‘presence’ (which exists immortally); an awareness of being an autological ‘being’ ... the realisation of ‘Being’ itself. In other words: everything you think, feel and instinctually know yourself to be ... is to be an alien in an alien world.
RESPONDENT: Okay, that is a description.
RICHARD: All words are a description ... it is what the words describe which is important: the root cause of 160,000,000 sane people being killed by their sane fellow human beings in wars alone in the last 100 years; the root cause of 40,000,000 killing themselves in the last 100 years; the root cause of the 34 wars occurring as you read this (wherein people are actually killing and wounding and being killed and wounded); the root cause of all the murders such as the someone, somewhere who is being murdered and the someone, somewhere who murdering as these words scroll past you; the root cause of all the tortures, as detailed by ‘Amnesty International’, which are going on right now; the root cause of all the domestic violence such as the someone, somewhere who is being beaten up at this very instant in some unsafe home; the root cause of all the child abuse wherein somewhere some child is being brutalised, frightened out of their wits at this very moment; the root cause of all the sadness, loneliness, grief, depression and suicide all over the world ... such suffering is going on in uncountable numbers of utterly miserable lives.
RESPONDENT: How are your words going to change that?
RICHARD: As facts and actuality can be commonsensically conveyed by the written word for those with the eyes to see, the third alternative to being either ‘human’ or ‘divine’ will be accessed by anyone discriminating enough long after I am physically dead. All I have ever wished for is for the words and writings of an actual freedom from the human condition to exist in the world so that they are available for anyone who comes across it, in any indeterminate future, to draw affirmation and confirmation from ... for anyone to avail themselves of if it be in accord with their own experience and/or aspirations. That is, it is an affirmation that their experience is not only valid but a confirmation in that a fellow human being has traversed this territory in an eminently satisfactory way.
I just happened to discover the already always existing peace-on-earth, the purity of which is so perfect that I am reporting my experience to my fellow human beings.
The ‘flow-on’ effect from reading actual freedom writings is that if one minimises the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ feelings (as explained further below) and activates the felicitous/ innocuous feelings in conjunction with sensuousness then the ensuing sense of amazement, marvel and wonder can result in apperceptiveness. If it does not ... then one is way ahead of normal human expectations anyway as the aim is to enjoy and appreciate being just here right now for as much as is possible.
It is a win/win situation.
RESPONDENT: So far they are only tying up valuable time.
RICHARD: May I ask? What do you consider is a more valuable way of ‘tying up time’ than investigating the root cause of human suffering?
RICHARD: It is for reasons like this that I pushed the envelope all those years ago and got out of the institutionalised insanity known as ‘Spiritual Enlightenment’ ... and yet you say: ‘okay, that is a description’. It is a description of why all that misery and mayhem is actually happening globally ... and all that anguish and anger is most definitely not a dream.
RESPONDENT: Many of us know it’s not a dream – that’s very patronising.
RICHARD: Hmm ... just as I know it is not ‘okay, that is a description’ (which is very dismissive).
RICHARD: The complete and utter extinction of ‘being’ is the end to all the ills of humankind.
RESPONDENT: Okay, that is a belief.
RICHARD: I beg to differ ... I do not ‘believe’ in peace-on-earth ...
RESPONDENT: Well, you said ‘The complete and utter extinction of ‘being’ is the end to all the ills of humankind’ ... you haven’t proven that so it’s a belief.
RICHARD: I have indeed ‘proven that it is not a belief’ ... when I go to bed at night I have had a perfect day ... and I know that I will wake up to yet another day of perfection. This has been going on, day-after-day, for years now ... it is so ‘normal’ that I take it for granted that there is only perfection.
No belief system can produce such consistency ... let alone such consummate flawlessness.
RICHARD: I experience peace-on-earth twenty four hours a day, day after day.
RESPONDENT: So claim the gurus ...
RICHARD: I beg to differ ... none of the Gurus and the God-Men, the Masters and the Messiahs, the Avatars and the Saviours and the Saints and the Sages have peace-on-earth on their agenda, hence their anguish and anger – and other peccadillos – as recorded more and more frequently these days.
RESPONDENT: And the same world still exists. You haven’t changed it ...
RICHARD: Again I demur ... it is immaculate and impeccable here in this actual world. As nothing dirty can get in neither ‘good’ nor ‘evil’ have any existence whatsoever.
That is a major change by any criteria.
RESPONDENT: And nor have they – and you admit that there is not peace on earth is most of your text.
RICHARD: Indeed ... I have said on many an occasion: do not hold your breath waiting for global peace-on-earth.
RICHARD: When I go to bed at night I have had a perfect day ... and I know that I will wake up to yet another day of perfection. This has been going on, day-after-day, for years now ... it is so ‘normal’ that I take it for granted that there is only perfection. Plus I can easily put it all into words so as to unambiguously share my experience with my fellow human beings. Thus I can easily describe how this already always existing peace-on-earth became apparent: It was through the complete and utter extinction of ‘being’ as an irrevocable event ... not via ‘a belief’.
RESPONDENT: You’re entitled to your definition of your day.
RICHARD: No, I am not ‘entitled’ for I did nothing to earn this perfection ... it was the identity who was inhabiting this body that did all the work.
RESPONDENT: So what do you mean by a ‘perfect day’?
RICHARD: I mean a faultless day; a flawless day; a spotless day; an impeccable day; an immaculate day; an unflawed day; an unblemished day; an unimpeachable day; an unsullied day; an unfaultable day; an untarnished day; a pure day; a salubrious day; a blameless day; an irreproachable day; an unassailable day; an unadulterated day; an uncontaminated day; an unpolluted day; a clean day; a wholesome day; an innocent day; a guiltless day; an irreprehensible day; an untouched day; an unmodified day; a fresh day; a clear day; a sparkling day; an unsoiled day; a bright day; a new, lucid day; a scintillating day; an original day; a brilliant day; an excellent day; a novel day; a superb day; a wonderful day; a terrific day; a splendid day; a fabulous day; a fantastic day; a marvellous day; an amazing day; a thrilling day and so on.
In other words: a magical day.
RESPONDENT: Where is the proof?
RICHARD: I invite anyone to make a critical examination of all the words I advance so as to ascertain if they be intrinsically self-explanatory ... and if they are all seen to be inherently consistent with what is being spoken about, then the facts speak for themselves. Then one will have reason to remember a pure conscious experience (PCE), which all peoples I have spoken to at length have had, and thus verify by direct experience the facticity of what is written (which personal experiencing is the only proof worthy of the name). The PCE occurs globally ... across cultures and down through the ages irregardless of gender, race or age. However, it is usually interpreted according to cultural beliefs – created and reinforced by the persistence of identity – and devolves into an altered state of consciousness (ASC). Then ‘I’ as ego – sublimated and transcended as ‘me’ as soul – manifest as a god or a goddess (‘The Truth’ by any name) and preach unliveable doctrines based upon their belief that they are ‘not the body’. Doctrines like pacifism, for example.
RESPONDENT: All of the words? There are too many!
RICHARD: Maybe it is because I am arraigning the trillions and trillions and trillions of words contained in the Sacred Scriptures of all cultures ... now there is verbosity for you!
RICHARD: Becoming free of the human condition is an irrevocable occurrence, wherein the ‘lizard-brain’ mutates out of its primeval state ... but if this mutation is not allowed its completion one becomes enlightened.
RESPONDENT: This sounds like speculation upon neuro-psychology theories ... are you claiming it is fact?
RICHARD: Yes ... this has been my on-going experiencing, night and day, for years now ... it is so ‘normal’ that I take it for granted that there is only perfection.
RESPONDENT: Er ... hum ... you have related it to the ‘nape of the neck – how do you know what goes on there?
RICHARD: My experiential sensate-feeling experience (sensation) tells me that it was the brain-stem (reptilian brain) where all the activity took place to free me from the human condition. As the result of this (when the activity ceased) is a twenty four hour a day freedom from the human condition then it is entirely reasonable to assume that the relationship was one of cause and effect.
It does not take a genius to suss out that what the neuro-biologists are empirically discovering is right on the ball in regards the human condition.
RICHARD: To become spiritually free the ego-self (‘I’ as ego) must die/dissolve ... all genuinely enlightened beings point to a single edifying moment of awakening (with a variety of descriptions).
RESPONDENT: Who would you recognise as enlightened?
RICHARD: To give but three persons from the last 100 or so years as an example: Mr. Venkataraman Aiyer [description of the happening snipped]; Mr. Jiddu Krishnamurti [description of the happening snipped]; Mr. Mohan ‘Rajneesh’ Jain [description of the happening snipped].
RESPONDENT: Yet you only point out that they are part of the problem ... why aren’t you also part of problem?
RICHARD: Simply and straightforwardly: because of the complete and utter extinction of ‘being’ ... which brought an end to all the ills of humankind in one flesh and blood human being.
RESPONDENT: Maybe you aren’t laying down so many rules?
RICHARD: I am not laying down any rules whatsoever. I can only suggest ... what another does with my suggestions is, of course, entirely up to them. It is they who either reap the rewards or pay the consequences for any action or inaction that they may or may not do. For so long as one complies with the legal laws and observes the social protocols one is left alone to live one’s life as foolishly or as wisely as one wishes.
Your peace and harmony is in your own hands to do what you will with.
RICHARD: A single edifying moment of awakening is where the personal self (or ‘being’) transmogrifies into the impersonal self or ‘being’ (or non-self) ... and which ‘being’ (often capitalised as ‘Being’) exists timelessly, spacelessly and formlessly. To become actually free the soul-self (‘me’ as soul) must also die/dissolve ... the total elimination of ‘being’ (and thus ‘Being’) itself. In a word: extinction.
RESPONDENT: Now you’ve gone from physiology to cognition to ontology. Where is the evidence that this can be done, other than your subjective claims?
RICHARD: I invite anyone to make a critical examination of all the words I advance so as to ascertain if they be intrinsically self-explanatory ... and if they are all seen to be inherently consistent with what is being spoken about, then the facts speak for themselves. Then one will have reason to remember a pure conscious experience (PCE), which all peoples I have spoken to at length have had, and thus verify by direct experience the facticity of what is written (which personal experiencing is the only proof worthy of the name). The PCE occurs globally ... across cultures and down through the ages irregardless of gender, race or age. However, it is usually interpreted according to cultural beliefs – created and reinforced by the persistence of identity – and devolves into an altered state of consciousness (ASC). Then ‘I’ as ego – sublimated and transcended as ‘me’ as soul – manifest as a god or a goddess (‘The Truth’ by any name) and preach unliveable doctrines based upon their belief that they are ‘not the body’. Doctrines like unconditional love, for example.
RESPONDENT: That’s simply a ‘cut & paste’ of the above – I asked for proof. Where is it?
RICHARD: Aye ... all in all you asked the same question three times and I gave the same answer three times (only I am not silly enough to re-type it each time so as to look like I was saying something different). I mean what I say and I say what I mean:
The only proof worthy of the name is precisely explained in the ‘copy and paste’ paragraph.
RICHARD: To explain: in my investigations into life, the universe and what it is to be a human being living in the world as-it-is with people as-they-are I first started by examining thought, thoughts and thinking ... then very soon moved on to examining feelings (first the emotions and then the deeper feelings). When I dug down into these passions and calentures (into the core of ‘my’ being then into ‘being’ itself) I stumbled across the instincts ... and found the origin of not only the affective faculty but the psyche itself . <SNIP>
RESPONDENT: I snipped the above this because it seems more like a rumination. I appreciate that you do this but it does not speak practically.
RICHARD: Okay ... I make no pretensions whatsoever of being a biologist ... I am a lay-person dabbling in an ad hoc general reading of the subject.
RESPONDENT: ([I] snipped 200 digressionary lines of quoted recommendations for a brain researcher). Definitely.
RICHARD: Hmm ... I submitted that practical data only because you had said ‘I snipped the above this because it seems more like a rumination ... it does not speak practically’ in dismissive reference to my report of my subjective experience. Now you dismiss carefully collected objective information as being ‘200 digressionary lines’ . If neither subjective reports nor objective data is what you wish to read from me, then what is it that you want to read?
For example: do you want signed certificates and/or endorsements from someone whose opinion you esteem and respect?
RICHARD: It is important to comprehend that I am putting a story together ‘after the event’ so as to throw some light on what happened for me. My experiential sensate-feeling experience (sensation) tells me that it was the brain-stem (reptilian brain) where all the activity took place to free me from the human condition.
RESPONDENT: This speculation is unhelpful when you put it forward as fact.
RICHARD: Yet my experiential sensate-feeling experience (sensation) that tells me that it was the brain-stem (reptilian brain) where all the activity took place to free me from the human condition is not ‘speculation put forward as fact’ ... for the nape of the neck is indeed where all the activity took place.
I then simply conducted an ad hoc reading of all the research painstakingly done by all those researchers with PET scans and MRI scans and so on so as to provide an empirical basis for other people. As I am already free I have no personal need for an interest in biology at all. The mystics report of activity in the nape of the neck too – amongst a myriad of other things – and similarly I have no need for an interest in their story for my sake. Since I began reporting my experience to my fellow human beings I have needed to find out about all manner of things. My way of becoming free was simple:
I stepped out of the ‘real world’ into this actual world and left ‘myself’ behind where ‘I’ belonged.
RESPONDENT: And is as misleading as all the various speculations about chakras.
RICHARD: But as I have never, ever mentioned ‘chakras’ (I have no experience of them as they played no part in my freedom whatsoever) then it is this response of yours which is ‘misleading’ (this invention of yours about what I did not say is called a ‘straw man argument’).
Thus you have reduced yourself to criticising your own invention.
RICHARD: I found ‘me’ at the core of ‘being’, which is the instinctual rudimentary animal self common to all sentient beings ... the deletion of blind nature’s software package which gave rise to the rudimentary animal ‘self’ is required. This is the extinction of ‘me’ at the core of ‘being’ ... which means that ‘being’ itself expires.
RESPONDENT: This seems no different from Patanjali.
RICHARD: I am somewhat bemused at your comparison ... the Patanjali Yoga-Sutras (also known as the Gonardiya Yoga-Sutras and/or the Gonikaputra Yoga-Sutras) are a categorisation of Yogic thought <SNIP> ... yet you say ‘this [what Richard wrote] seems no different from Patanjali’ whereas I see it as 180 degrees different ... could you elaborate?
RESPONDENT: ([I] snipped 200 digressionary lines quoted on 8-fold yoga [and I] snipped 100 digressionary lines quoted verbatim [and I] snipped 30 repetitive lines). No, because you did not make a true comparison but rather threw out verbatim texts about yoga.
RICHARD: Excuse me for breathing ... I would have thought that ‘verbatim texts’ from the Patanjali Yoga-Sutras themselves would be streets ahead of any vaguely remembered ad hoc readings? So, if the factual words from history’s record of mistakes do not provide ‘a true comparison’ then what manner of words will ... according to you?
What else is there to talk about except facts?
RESPONDENT: Your essential ideas in part are similar to Patanjali though it’s true that you have so far not recommended yoga.
RICHARD: I simply cannot take your critique as being legitimate ... not only do you dismiss ‘verbatim texts’ but you are now making unsubstantiated claims about unstated ‘similarities’ and unspecified ‘essential ideas’ as if you are making some valid point. I guess you meant it when you said ‘it is morning here and I have things to do’ rather than tying up valuable time investigating the root cause of all the wars and murders and rapes and tortures and domestic violence and child abuse and sadness and loneliness and grief and depression and suicides and the such-like, eh?
RESPONDENT: How briefly can your way be taught?
RICHARD: The physical cause necessitates a physical solution (the extinction of the instinctual ‘being’ itself) and will not eventuate unless the temporary absence or abeyance of the physically inherited cause (a genetically inherited instinctual animal ‘self’) which created the problem of the human condition is intimately experienced, remembered and activated. This peak experience is known as a pure consciousness experience (PCE) and is essential to the process of freeing oneself from one’s fate and attaining to one’s destiny. The first and most important step is to remember a PCE (everybody that I have spoken to at length over the last nineteen years – everybody – has had at least one PCE) and thus start thinking for oneself (although most people cannot initially remember a PCE and may need a lot of prompting to retrieve it from their memory). Then each next step becomes obvious of its own accord in one’s daily life as one goes about one’s normal business in the market place. The pure intent born out of the PCE actively works on eliminating the animal ‘self’ bestowed by blind nature each moment again. It is essential for success to grasp the fact that this is one’s only moment of being alive. The past, although it did happen, is not actual now. The future, though it will happen, is not actual now. Only now is actual. Yesterday’s happiness and harmlessness does not mean a thing if one is miserable and malicious now ... and a hoped-for happiness and harmlessness tomorrow is to but waste this moment of being alive in waiting. All one gets by waiting is more waiting. Thus any ‘change’ can only happen now. The jumping in point is always here ... it is at this moment in time and this place in space. Thus, if one misses it this time around, hey presto ... one has another chance immediately. Life is excellent at providing opportunities like this. There is a wide and wondrous path to actual freedom: One asks oneself, each moment again, ‘how am I experiencing this moment of being alive’? This can give rise to apperception. Apperception is the outcome of the exclusive attention paid to being alive right here just now. Apperception is to be the senses as a bare awareness, a pure consciousness experience (PCE) of the world as-it-is, which happens when the mind becomes aware of itself. Apperception is an awareness of consciousness. It is not ‘I’ being aware of ‘me’ being conscious; it is the mind’s awareness of itself.
RESPONDENT: Sounds like Ramana ... it even sound like No. 3.
RICHARD: If I may ask ... how does it ‘sounds like Ramana’? I cannot see any correspondence whatsoever between what I experience and describe and what Mr. Venkataraman Aiyer (aka Ramana) experienced and talked about. I am not even going to ask how it ‘sounds like No. 3’ because he is on record as echoing and endorsing the ‘ancient wisdom’ unreservedly. Therefore, whatever they experienced is what he obligingly experiences as well.
RESPONDENT: ([I] snipped 30 repetitive lines). That doesn’t mean that you completely agree with No. 3.
RICHARD: Not at all, in fact ... I am 180 degrees in the other direction. If you had not been in such a rush to snip the telling details you would have noticed that this is because peace-on-earth is here on earth ... not on the astral plains.
RICHARD: Which means that attentiveness and sensuousness will facilitate what the wide and wondrous path to an actual freedom is on about: a virtual freedom wherein the ‘good’ feelings – the affectionate and desirable emotions and passions (those that are loving and trusting) are minimised along with the ‘bad’ feelings – the hostile and invidious emotions and passions (those that are hateful and fearful) – so that one is free to be feeling good, feeling happy and harmless and feeling excellent/perfect for 99% of the time. If one deactivates the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ feelings and activates the felicitous/ innocuous feelings (happiness, delight, joie de vivre/ bonhomie, friendliness, amiability and so on) with this freed-up affective energy, in conjunction with sensuousness (delectation, enjoyment, appreciation, relish, zest, gusto and so on), then the ensuing sense of amazement, marvel and wonder can result in apperceptiveness (unmediated perception).
RESPONDENT: Sounds reasonable but hardly new.
RICHARD: You have my interest here: whereabouts in what I write is it ‘hardly new’ and where have you read or heard of it before? If you can provide me with names or URL’s or book titles of these peoples who have already discovered an actual freedom from the human condition I would be well pleased to contact and/or or read about them. I have been scouring the books and talking with people from all walks of life for nineteen years now ... to no avail. I would be delighted to hear of another human being’s experience of living life as this flesh and blood body only being apperceptively aware (sans both ego-self and Soul-Self) and who says that death is the end, finish. Extinction.
RESPONDENT: Sounds like positive thinking even like NLP – you choose to be happy.
RICHARD: Yet ‘positive thinking’ does not include living life as this flesh and blood body only being apperceptively aware (sans both ego-self and Soul-Self); and ‘NLP’ does not include living life as this flesh and blood body only being apperceptively aware (sans both ego-self and Soul-Self); and ‘choosing to be happy’ does not include living life as this flesh and blood body only being apperceptively aware (sans both ego-self and Soul-Self).
Not unless they have all of a sudden started completely and utterly extinguishing the ‘being’ who is the root cause of all the ills of humankind since I last looked at their writings?
RESPONDENT: You assert one difference is that you have no ego – it seems that you do have one.
RICHARD: Not only no ego-self ... no Soul-Self either (no ‘being’ at all).
RICHARD: Thus, delight is what is humanly possible, given sufficient pure intent obtained from the felicity/ innocuity born of the PCE, and from the position of delight, one can vitalise one’s joie de vivre by the amazement at the fun of it all ... and then one can – with sufficient abandon – become over-joyed and move into marvelling at being here and doing this business called being alive. Then one is no longer just intellectually making sense of life ... the wonder of it all drives all intellectual sensing away. Such delicious wonder fosters the innate condition of naiveté the nourishing of which is essential if the charm of it all is to occur. Then, as one gazes intently at the world about by glancing lightly with sensuously caressing eyes, out of the corner of one’s eye comes – sweetly – the magical fairy-tale-like paradise that this verdant earth actually is ... and I am the experiencing of what is happening. But try not to possess it and make it your own ... or else ‘twill vanish as softly as it appeared.
RESPONDENT: And not so simple or persistent.
RICHARD: Au contraire ... it is the most simplistic thing possible (which is why naiveté is essential) and if one has the altruistic desire for peace-on-earth one will be perpetually living in this magical fairy-tale-like paradise, that this verdant earth actually is, for the remainder of one’s life.
RESPONDENT: Poetry ... but it’s not so simple to read so much verbosity.
RICHARD: I freely acknowledge that my writing is flowery – which is a polite way of saying ‘convoluted and over-ornamental’ as an editor once explained to me – but that is an idiosyncrasy that brings me great delight. I make no apologies for an extravagant exuberance with words ... I am conveying the lavish exhilaration of life itself.
RESPONDENT: How many have you taught successfully?
RICHARD: First, I do not teach anyone ... the PCE does that. I am not required for the process of understanding (as in a ‘personality cult’ that can grow around a ‘charismatic leader’) ... <SNIP> ... as far as I have been able to ascertain there is nobody else living an actual freedom from the human condition ...
RESPONDENT: How did you ascertain that?
RICHARD: The same way that I ascertain anything about anybody and everybody ... I ask and I listen. Plus I read about other people’s experiences in books, journals, magazines, newspapers and on the internet. I watch TV, videos, films ... whatever media is available. I have been scouring the books and talking with many and varied peoples from all walks of life for nineteen years now for information on an actual freedom from the human condition ... but to no avail.
RESPONDENT: So you are the only one? You need more than one case to prove your claims.
RICHARD: Not so ... when I go to bed at night I have had a perfect day ... and I know that I will wake up to yet another day of perfection. This has been going on, day-after-day, for years now ... it is so ‘normal’ that I take it for granted that there is only perfection.
Such a remarkable consistency of pristine purity is the only proof I need.
RICHARD: When I go to bed at night I have had a perfect day ... and I know that I will wake up to yet another day of perfection. This has been going on, day-after-day, for years now ... it is so ‘normal’ that I take it for granted that there is only perfection. Plus I can easily put it all into words so as to unambiguously share my experience with my fellow human beings. Thus I can easily describe how this already always existing peace-on-earth became apparent: It was through the complete and utter extinction of ‘being’ as an irrevocable event.
RESPONDENT: What do you mean by a ‘perfect day’?
RICHARD: I mean a faultless day; a flawless day; a spotless day; an impeccable day; an immaculate day; an unflawed day; an unblemished day; an unimpeachable day; an unsullied day; an unfaultable day; an untarnished day; a pure day; a salubrious day; a blameless day; an irreproachable day; an unassailable day; an unadulterated day; an uncontaminated day; an unpolluted day; a clean day; a wholesome day; an innocent day; a guiltless day; an irreprehensible day; an untouched day; an unmodified day; a fresh day; a clear day; a sparkling day; an unsoiled day; a bright day; a new, lucid day; a scintillating day; an original day; a brilliant day; an excellent day; a novel day; a superb day; a wonderful day; a terrific day; a splendid day; a fabulous day; a fantastic day; a marvellous day; an amazing day; a thrilling day and so on. In other words: a magical day.
RESPONDENT: Richard, if that [‘an uncontaminated day; an unpolluted day’] really is your definition of a ‘perfect day’ then I can only conclude that have not been living on this planet where there clearly is contamination and pollution.
RICHARD: Of course there are two ways to read a paragraph (especially if it is isolated from the thread): the discussion is about consciousness being bereft of the invidious and pernicious identity (‘I’ as ego and ‘me’ as soul) ... and a consciousness ‘unpolluted and uncontaminated’ by any feeling of ‘being’ whatsoever results in a perfect day in a perfect life in a perfect world day-after-day.
The physical world is, of course, polluted and contaminated with by-products of both organic nature (bio-mass effluent, animal excrement, decaying bodies and so on) and inorganic nature (volcanoes, wild-fires, sun-spot activity and so on). The human inventiveness and ingeniousness, that has resulted in so many creature comforts, also produces by-products adjudged detrimental to both physical and emotional-mental well-being.
In other words: the same azure and verdant planet (the third from the sun) that all we 6.0 billion fellow human beings live on.
The Third Alternative
(Peace On Earth In This Life Time As This Flesh And Blood Body)
Here is an actual freedom from the Human Condition, surpassing Spiritual Enlightenment and any other Altered State Of Consciousness, and challenging all philosophy, psychiatry, metaphysics (including quantum physics with its mystic cosmogony), anthropology, sociology ... and any religion along with its paranormal theology. Discarding all of the beliefs that have held humankind in thralldom for aeons, the way has now been discovered that cuts through the ‘Tried and True’ and enables anyone to be, for the first time, a fully free and autonomous individual living in utter peace and tranquillity, beholden to no-one.
