views from the mountains
Thoughts, comments, and explorations about our life and being, from a distance, by a wanderer in a rough, lucid, and boundless World that is immensely intriguing.
As I climb higher, I see the essentially unchanging landscape from ever new perspectives. Slowly drifting clouds. Fog swallows part of the landscape, occasionally myself, releases us again. The light changes, at times swiftly. Occasionally, I encounter a fellow soul on the path, for a short chat, for just a nod. Situations, perceptions, understanding, they all change on the way, the landscape remains. The ephemeral and the rock solid.
From a distance, I perceive the large valleys, the mountain ranges, and I recognize their order. The rivers that shape the landscape, I see those nearby but not those farther away. Neither do I see the wide roads and big cites. I just know that there is more, much more, and different from what I see. But I do see the Sun.
Such are also these texts: Recurrent themes, surging, exhibiting ever new facets, evoking ever more comprehensive yet never complete imaginations of a reality that may be, beyond, and that unfolds and shapes itself. The last views stay on, memories, gently fading, until they are updated with a new vision, or not. It is these last views that are collected here. No journal, no thread, no blog, just views as last perceived, in the mountains.
Disclaimer: Many of the thoughts and concepts laid out here can be found at other places, explored deeper and worked out more beautifully. Still, I want to touch the mountains myself, walk through them, experience them. I wish you get inspired to do so, too.
ONE – the first blink [Sept 21, 2019]
Our World is ONE, bigger and different from what any scientific, cultural, or spiritual line postulates. How do we know? Touching lightly on our limited perception, esotericism, and secret teachings.
Man – a very complicated being [July 7, 2019]
Humans are very complicated beings with a hierarchy of tightly interconnected layers that reach from the biomolecular machinery all the way to the divine sphere.
Nature and Culture – the existing and the emerging [Sept 2, 2019]
Nature is the existing World. Culture reaches from that existing into the not yet existing, attempts to see, explore, create, and form it, to turn it into nature.
Images – from nature to science to spirituality and back [May 30, 2019]
Cross-fertilizing between lines that appear to have nothing in common: can we?
