Limitations of Linear Thinking

If I am ignorant, I am in the dark. If I am learned, I am in even greater darkness. ~ paraphrasing the Vedas. Linear thinking is a way of, first of all, learning things. And, second, of performing cognitive operations with the things you have learned. Cognitive operations are analysis, synthesis, comparison, etc. If both … Continue reading Limitations of Linear Thinking

Introducing “The Plus Zone” – positive news from around the globe

Dear reader, About 2 weeks ago, I started a new website, The Plus Zone, that features positive news from around the globe.

The Day the Human Thought Died

I was on the train the other day, going to work. And I saw a girl become completely immersed in the world of her iPhone as soon as she sat down. I rarely take the train these days; I mostly drive.

It can lead to visible changes in the material world, as well as influence the cause of events. The thought is an electro-magnetic field … Continue reading The power of group meditation

Our world is just an elaborate illusion

I think, our world is nothing but an illusion created by the Universal Mind. Everything that exists is, kind of, located inside Its head, like a dream that exists in the head of a human being. A human dream is not real (any sane person will tell you that dreams are not real), but still, … Continue reading Our world is just an elaborate illusion
