If we really are the universe conscious of itself (individuality and the ego being an illusion, of course), and if the universe is infinite (an infinite multiverse, universes within universes ad infinitum), then what does that say about consciousness and the true identity of 'I'?
It has been said that each philosophy reflects the life and temperament
of the philosopher who created it. Perhaps. Perhaps all philosophy is autobiographical, is rooted
in the personality of it's creator, but this does not necessarily undermine the validity of philosophy.
Only personal experience can validate the truths contained in various different philosophies. And with
enough experience, reflection, and wisdom, one sees that all religions and philosophies are but partial truths,
and clearly discerns that every thought system yet conceived by Man is but an insignificant reflection (as Einstein said).
Can we do better than what has been done? Can we synthesize the disparate strands of Man's thought into
a coherent whole? I believe we can, for the Totality of all of Mankind's philosophies, and
the recognition of the partial validity consigned to each, itself constitutes a new philosophy, and yields a
new, much broader, philosophical vision and understanding.
In the following, I present some essays relevant to understanding my own brand of philosophy, which
can be said to involve a synthesis and extension of Nietzsche, Spinoza, Schopenhauer, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Dhammapada.
