How to Escape the La La Land of Philosophy


Harmonizing epistemology and ontology

There is no duality between Materialism and Godhood

The world rarely if ever represents exactly what our consciousness sees of the world, but the world nevertheless exists outside of our consciousness of the world. The differences regarding how we perceive the world are determined by the level of evolution of the consciousness of the perceiver of the world---there is no real duality. A human sees the world different from a frog but a God sees the world different from a human, depending on the level of the material evolution of the consciousness of frogs, humans, and Gods. Separating the "subject" from the "object" only confuses things, the difference is, again, only in the level of evolution of the subject perceiving the object. I prefer to use the tern "object" for both, since they are essentially the same.

The most truthful and realistic view of the world relating to what thinkers have called the "Absolute" or God are determined by the highest levels of the material evolution of consciousness. This helps define how we can harmonize epistemology and ontology, how we know what we know, and what the nature of existence might be. There is no need to separate the material from the spiritual.
